Review: OPI I Lily Love You, the #1 Polish as Voted by You Guys

A few weeks ago I did an experiment with a competition.  It was a resounding success and I was so happy to be able to share the gorgeous China Glaze Prismatic collection with a lucky reader.  One of the ways to enter was to answer a question as I want to really know what your #1 favourite polish was.  Again and again, I Lily Love You from OPI came up so I just had to track it down.  I'm so glad I did as it's the prettiest pink based, square and shredded iridescent glitter I think I've ever seen!

When I swatch a glitter like this - colour tinted base - I like to pick a base colour as there's no point me trying to layer 25 layers to get this to be opaque.  I think I found a pretty good match with Essence Ultimate Pink, a sweet bubblegum creme.  I'm so excited about this actually as mini Essence polishes just started showing up in Shopper's Drug Mart!  So cheap too at $1.69 a bottle, can't go wrong with more brands to choose from.  Anyway, Ultimate Pink is a really great pink and I only needed two coats to get good coverage.  You could almost get away with one.  The pink is sweet and bright too, always a plus.  
Onto the main event, I Lily Love You.  I love how much glitter is packed into this, and in all different shapes and sizes too.  Check out the close-ups, I see at least three different sizes and shapes of iridescent glitter.  Coverage was decent, these pictures are two coats. 







The Verdict:  Just like Last Friday Night, another great, different glitter from OPI.  I hope they keep this up, they're so fun to play with.  I can't remember where I got this but it was for only $5 on a site out there.  Not too bad at all.

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....
