Review: Cha Cha Twist from All That Glitters

Onwards my friends, to try all the different indie polishes out there!  You might recognise this one as a particular stand out from the haul I got in the mail yesterday from AllThatGlitters, another wonderful etsy seller.  This is my first shipment from here and if the other polishes are anything like Cha Cha Twist, I'll be getting way more in the future.

I just had to start with Cha Cha Twist, it's such a stand out glitter.  Combining hex, square (yeah, square) and bar glitter in lots of different sizes in teal, blue, red and black, I can't think of another glitter polish like it. What you see below is two coats over Orly Sweet Peacock, a bright sparkly blue foil.  Application was decent for this polish although I got a lot more interesting glitter when I upended the bottle for a couple of minutes.  It's a little gloopy but there is so. much. glitter. you wouldn't expect anything else.  I love the colour combination in this, looks so good on.






The Verdict: I have five other glitters here to try and if Cha Cha Twist is anything to go by they're all going to be awesome.  Have I mentioned again lately how much I love black and square glitter?  I love that there's both in here :D

  1. Woah. I was considering this one, but once again, I am SOLD once I see your pictures xD But, is this just Cha Cha alone, or is it on top of a blue polish? Just wondering :)

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 …
