Review: Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue + Bonus Red French

Every couple of weeks or so, a friend of mine and I make the comparatively epic journey to Sally's in northern Toronto.  The first few times we went it was awesome as they're the one place I know of that sells Orly and Finger Paints.  However, the past few times we've been my opinion of them has fallen drastically because 1) they don't see a problem selling an two entire cases of Finger Paints Special Effects to one person and 2) never getting anything new.  So, to spite them, I went to the Rexall nearby and bought all the on-sale polishes!  Notable in the polishes I picked up was the following, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Thinking of Blue (urgh, pun-tacular).

I've always been a fan of the Complete Salon Manicures as I like the brush and the application is always simple.  Thinking of Blue was no exception, it applied nicely in two coats.  It's a really pretty blueberry creme, too.  As I can't leave manicures along, I just had to give my nails red tips, as I love the colour combo.  Looking through my stash, I couldn't go past A England Perceval - a stunning, rich, metallic red.  I have this one all ready to be reviewed with pics so check back soon for that one. 




Don't you love how rich both these colours are?  I especially love Perceval, it's so rich and is opaque in just about one coat.



The Verdict:  I'll be reviewing Perceval in a separate post so I'm just going to sum up Thinking of Blue for now.  It's such a pretty colour, applies really well and you can usually find the Complete Salon Manicure polishes for about $5 in various drug stores.  A winner in my book.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop.  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....


Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
