Review: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength White Veil

Why is it whenever I've had a few drinks and I have to walk home I managed to make a detour via a Shoppers?  It's a horrible mistake as my resolve to actually use the polishes I have already is weak so I'm completely vulnerable to, say, a new line of Sally Hansen glitters.  It's ok though, cos they're awesome and one can literally never have enough glitter.  LITERALLY.  That's my new thing, over-using "literally" but literally using it correctly.  It's fun.

First up, let's take a look at Diamond Strength White Veil, a most interesting glitter.  I mean, when was the last time you saw a WHITE glitter in a drug store brand?? Along side the white there's also a smattering of gold and black glitter.  I mean, come on! That's so cool!  Application was good, this is two coats over two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  







The Verdict:  I really like this polish.  I love white glitter in general so to see it in a Shoppers is awesome.  I also love the bottle, you can really stir the polish because of the shape.  There were three other glitters there, you'll be seeing those soon, don't worry :)

*****CALL OUT FOR GUEST BLOGGERS ******
As I mentioned yesterday, I'm going on vacation soon and I need some help with posts!  This is a complete experiment so please bear with me.  The response so far has been awesome but I still need more people to help me as I'll be away for a while.  See here for more information.

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 Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!

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....
