Review: Orly Passion Fruit with Gold Glitter Strips

As you might have noticed, I'm running a giveaway at the moment to win Revlon Whimsical, Nerd Lacquer and a couple others.  IF YOU HADN'T, CONSIDER THIS ME RAMMING IT IN YOUR FAACCEEE.  Anyway, I need new ideas and one of the ways to enter is to give me yours, mwhahahahaha.  Common themes thus far have been more mermaid/mosaic/sequin nails and neon.  DONE AND DONE.  On my trip to Buffalo yesterday I picked up the ear-burningly bright Orly Passion Fruit which just happens to help me fill these two criteria.

Orly Passion Fruit, like a lot of the Orly neons, isn't the easiest to work with as it's very sheer.  I do have visions of using it for a glitter sandwich though, really gotta try that soon.  Anyway, to start this off I added two coats of my new favourite neutral, Orly Pure Porcelain.  It's a really pretty nude that covers great and it'll be featured in a post either tomorrow or the day after, if you're interested.  Over the top of that, I added one coat of Passion Fruit then went to work following these steps for the gold glitter stripes.  







The Verdict: I've loved this gold glitter since I used it in my gold and coral mani from last week.  It's just so spangly, I had to use it more and I'm really glad I did.  Orly Passion Fruit is a great colour although I wish application was easier.  Can't have everything I guess.  SPAARRRKKKLYYYYYYYYYY.

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?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
