Review: Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having in Half-Moon

I have something of a love/hate relationship with half moons.  For the longest time there was something about them that skeeved me out but then I got those binder reinforcements and actually tried it and was surprised by the results.  Ever since, every time I use just a single colour my brain goes "Psst, hey, what if you did a half moon thing on this?".  Why I chose to do it over glitter is beyond me as now I get all the pain of removing this without the full glitter effect but foresight has never been my strong point.  

This initially started off as a straight review of Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having, an absolutely pink glitter bomb.  There is every kind of pink glitter in here, it's awesome.  Application was tricky though as this is super thick and likes to drag around the cuticles.  I had to shake the bottle between fingers, it's that thick. For some reason though, mostly because the glitter dries fast, I decided to do a black half moon over the top.  I then added pink and white dots and I think this time the embellishment worked for me, it makes it extra-interesting. 







The Verdict:  I'll Have What She's Having is ok, nothing super special.  It's pretty but very rough and tricky to apply.  Works well with a black half moon mani though, especially with the dots.

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 …
