Review: Nerd Lacquer Event Horizon

I realised that when I got my previous two shipments of Nerd Lacquers, I never actually WORE them.  I swatched them and cos the glitter is a PITA to take off, I usually scraped it off before it dried out completely.  I now am bummed as I don't feel I can wear them now as you've already need them and I have million other polishes to try.  NOT THIS TIME, DAMMIT!  I am wearing these bastards so I'm afraid you might be seeing quite the few pictures of these in the next week or so.

I reviewed All of Time and Space the other day, now let's look at Event Horizon.  I'm not normally too into greens but this is so packed with glitter I couldn't resist.  Event Horizon on is the prettiest jelly I've seen in a long time.  When you add three layers like I did here, the silver, blue, green and holo glitter look like they're suspended in some fabulous pool.  It looks so deep you could practically dive in, it's awesome. 






 The Verdict:  I <3 Nerd Lacquers and I think that Event Horizon might just have taken the #1 spot for my favourite green.  It's so deep, sparkly and interesting, I love it.

    1. I spend a looooooooooooooooooooot of time on the webs. It started with Harlow and Co selling them and then I hunted down other places to buy them. That then led to me finding Lacquistry, Pretty and Polished, Dollish Polish (which I'm waiting for my first shipment of) and so on. They're usually different be with massive amounts of glitter or a unique colour so I try to hunt down as many as I can.

      I get sick of just having boring single colours so indie polishes are perfect 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 …
