Lacquistry Tepes Swatches!

I think I'm going to stick to my rule for making posts: when in doubt, review another Lacquistry polish!  I've been making it my mission lately to try as many indie polishes as I can but Lacquistry keeps on being my favourite.  Nerd Lacquers are a very close second but who could resist someone that makes polishes like Tepes?  

Tepes is an absolute glitter bomb with all manner of bronze glitters packed in a slightly tinted base.  That would be good on it's own but it also somehow manages to be duochrome as well.  Bronze in some lights, pink/purple in others, it's just so pretty.  Application was really good on this one as well, this is three coats and is fully opaque, no base colour.  I hope Jenna keeps doing the dense glitters like this as they're much easier to work with than the large-hex glitters, as much as I love them. 







SOOOOO MMMUUCCCHH GLITTTTERRRRAAAAAA

The Verdict:  I'm eagerly awaiting the Lacquistry etsy store to open as it's been closed for the past couple of weeks.  I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeed more glitter.  Also, Tepes is beautiful and I really don't have anything else like it in my stash.  I mean, bronze with pink/purple colour shifts?  Awww yeaah.

  1. Wooooow. I can't wait until Laquistry's etsy opens up again, because of you I'll be placing a big order! I heard that the lady who runs it has been unwell lately, I hope she's feeling better.

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....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
