Review: Nerd Lacquer - Entirely Unlike Tea

Alrighty ladies, time for another Nerd Lacquer review!  I've continually been lucky with Nerd Lacquers, I always seem to be able to catch the shop when it's open.  It does help though that I stalk Etsy pages religiously.... Anyway, let's take a look at one of the more understated colours, Entirely Unlike Tea. 

Entirely Unlike Tea is a really pretty light beige with a surprisingly strong pink flash running though it, complimented by just a whole bunch of silver glitter.  Application of this wasn't quite as good as some of the others, I needed  four coats here to get opacity.  Doesn't really help I was a bit tipsy when doing this, please ignore the various wangings on the polish surface.  Once on, it's a really pretty, delicate shade, quite unlike the neons and blues I normally head to.  I like it. 







The Verdict:  If you're in to more understated polishes, you'll love this one.  Just wear a coloured base coat, four coats is something of a pain :)

  1. I love this color. Hopefully the next time she's open I'll be able to snag this.

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 …
