Review: Nerd Lacquer Nebula

You know the worse part about blogging about nail polish?  I like to do two reviews a day to make sure you lot have plenty to read but it means that every day, one polish only gets to be worn for about 20 minutes.  Also, once I've swatched a polish, I feel like it would be a waste to wear it again as it means there'd be one less thing to blog about.  I felt sure I'd be safe with Nebula cos surely it can't be as good as it looks in the bottle.  WRONG WRONG.  This polish is amazing and I'm an idiot for just swatching it.

Nebula is a beautiful, deep purple-red so full of glitter I don't even know where to start.  There has to be at least 10 different kinds in there.  Application was a breeze, this is two coats and the coverage is perfect.  It's another of those heavily pigmented jellies which I've recently come to love it as brings such interesting depth to the polish.  LOOK AT IT








The Verdict:  I love this so much, I don't even know what to say.  It's so glossy, so sparkly, I think I might actually wear it again *gasp*.

  1. I wanted this when Nerd Lacquer was open but I did't get it because I already bought 4 polishes but damn it now I regret not getting this. It's soooo beautiful. :(

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 …
