Review: Nail-Venturous Orange You Unique - Yep.

I was really lucky, about two weeks ago I able to get an excellent selection of polishes from Ninja Polish. Sticks 'n' Stones, two Nail-venturous polishes, an A-England and a Jessica.  The one that really stood out for me for being, well, unique was Nail-Venturous Orange You Unique.  I don't think I've ever even seen anything close to this, which makes me really happy cos who needs another red or coral colour.  That doesn't mean I won't buy them if I see one I like so the point is moot but WHATEVERRRRR.

Orange You Unique is a collection of small yellow, white and blue flat glitter in a slightly orange tinted base.  Hot damn is it interesting on.  It almost looks like a colour version of TV static.  I've had this on all day today and I keep staring at it cos I can't quite work out how I feel about it.  Nope, decided, love it cos it's different and that's good with me. 








 The Verdict: I HAVE to find more Nail-Venturous polishes now.  I have Voodoo Doll here to test but being black and white glitter, I want some time to pass between it and Sticks 'n' Stones.  This is so different to everything else out there, try to get it if you can.  I managed to get one more in the 30 seconds her Etsy store was open, looks like imma be stalking that one for a while :)

  2. I love these! I bought Floam and Voodoo Doll from Ninja Polish but unfortunately missed out on her sale last night. I need these in my life, especially since they're all Louisiana themed. Hehe.

  3. They look like ice cream sprinkles (Hundreds and Thousands for those from the UK.) I love it :D Something I'd struggle to pull off but they're pretty!

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 …
