Review: Pretty & Polished Candy Coated

Onwards to review all the indie polishes!  I've got another from the haul I received last week to show you today, this time Candy Coated from Pretty & Polished.  Look at that, my shorted segue into actually talking about the polish yet!

Candy Coated is a pretty baby pink with a ton of purple and silver glitter smattered throughout.  As a side note, I'm really having to get creative lately with my use of adjectives.  There really is only so many ways to describe glitter in a polish :).  Anyway, application for this was really good, this is three coats as I'm not quite done growing out the terrible green stains on my nails.  The glitter distributed itself evenly which is always nice. 







The Verdict:  Looks like candy, as advertised.  Reminds me of those chocolate eggs you get at easter which makes this quite well timed.  Super girly, super cool.

  1. This color is beautiful! I wish I could get a hold of it. :( I was never one to really paint my nails, but thanks to your blog, I'm now obsessed and loving it!

  2. You know what? I'm so jealous if you it's insane.
    You have so many amazing indie polishes, but when I look on Etsy they're either on holiday or the shipping to the UK is horrendous :( I would love to find some UK indie nail polish sellers but I don't know any!

    1. :( I'm super jelly of people that live in the States. We in Canada get charged ridiculous shipping despite being so close to the border.

      Is there anything I can do to help? Want to do a swap? For example, I'm dyyyyying to try Fantasy Fire but hate to resort to ebay for such things.

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 …
