Review: Nerd Lacquer Cyance Friction with Matte Top Coat

I find that a night, when I do my nails, I'll play around with a couple of different techniques to varying levels of success.  Take last night for example.  I had my heart set on a black and holo snakeskin stamping thing but I kept not waiting long enough for everything to dry and it just wasn't right.  Of course, by the time I gave up, it was laaate so I did what I do every time I run out of time - indie swatches!  There's always so much glitter in Nerd Lacquers, Lacquistry polishes and so on that I can bang one out quickly.   Which brings me, finally, to Nerd Lacquer Cyance Friction!

Cyance Friction is just the most gorgeous shade of turquoise and packed with all types of copper and aqua glitter, topped off with a pink sheen, just like Entirely Unlike Tea.  Application was really nice, I only needed two coats to be happy with the opacity.  As an extra touch, and to keep it with the stone roots, I added a matte top coat.  Such a pretty colour and looks really interesting matte.






The Verdict:  Nerd Lacquers never disappoint and Cyance Friction is no exception.  I don't think I have any other turquoise polishes, so winner for me!

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 …
