Review: OPI Last Friday Night from the Katy Perry Collection

I'm a little late getting on the Katy Perry OPI collection bandwagon.  I've only been into serious collection for a couple of months now and so missed out on a lot of great collections.  I've been making it my mission to catch up recently though, mostly through reasonable ebay auctions.  Today was a good shipment, with a package containing OPI Not Like the Movies and the beautiful Last Friday Night.  I'll be looking at the later first as it's so pretty I had to try it.

OPI Last Friday Night is a sheer blue polish, filled with small and medium opalescent glitter.  It kinda reminds me of a blue version of China Glaze Snow Globe.  Being so pretty in the bottle, I was torn with what to pair it with.  It would look great over black but I had to try to match the blue.  Turns out Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue is the perfect match for the bright blue!  Last Friday Night is very sheer on it's own, I'm glad I used it over another colour.  Application was decent although it did take three coats to get to this level of glitter. 








The Verdict: I LOVE this glitter.  Such a pretty, bold blue with so much opalescent glitter packed in there, it's just beautiful.  I'm especially happy with it as it will do for a substitute for the China Glaze Snow Globe I broke all over the floor >.<

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 …
