Review: Pretty n Polished Jawbreaker is as Advertised!

Some of you mind have seen the post I made the other night, showcasing all the lovely indie polishes I received this week.  I'm doing my best to work through them, even if it means posting while being a little drunk and listening to dubstep to keep me awake.  All for you, dammit!  Anyway, let's take a look at some pictures I took when I wasn't drunk, of the lovely Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker.  

I pick polishes to swatch based on how much I like them so it says something that I picked Jawbreaker first.  I've seen swatches of this one around the webs so was super psyched to try it myself.  Jawbreaker is a white creme polish packed with red, yellow, blue and green glitter and it really does look like a Jawbreaker on.  I love polishes with a ton of glitter and a non clear base, the layered look is so interesting.






The Verdict:  Exactly as advertised by the name and I love it.  A lot of the more popular indie polishes are hard to find right now but if you go to any given Etsy strore and set the notification email you should be able to get everything you want.  That's what I do anyway.  

SLEEP TIME ZZZZZ I wonder if I'll regret the amount of ~$2 stuff I just bought off ebay....hmm probably not.  I do need more striping tape, infinite stickers, more glitter, rhinestones and stuff I've already forgotten....:D

  2. Is that bar glitter in there? I'm kind of bummed. I fell in love with the bottle shot in your indie haul post, but I'm not a fan of bar glitter. I guess I'll have to buy a bottle and try it out for myself!

  3. I'm really mad at myself. I only got the mini size.

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 …
