Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Frock Star

I had grand plans for my nails last night - something like a half moon gone made, with different colours but something about it was just off and I won't stand for off!  Given it was late and I was likely to ruin a standard mani overnight I turned to my ever reliable back up - Sally Hansen Salon Effect Nail Polish Strips in Frock Star.  I love glitter and this is just so sparkly, I love it. 

Using my normal technique, I applied the strips.  This particular style is a little trickier than usual as you have to file through or trim pieces of glitter off the ends of your nails.  Once on though, omgsosparkly.  I like these as you don't have to wait for them to dry, they're designed well and last well.  Winning combination for me.  Oh, and in case you're wondering, that is a ring I'm holding :D








The Verdict:  The Sally Hansen strips are my favourites out of the Sephora and Claire strips I've tried.  This is the fourth time I've worn this particular glittery one and I love it every time.  Yay glitter!

  5. I like those strips but they're so expensive for just one use! You can get a bottle of higher end polish or a couple of bottles of cheaper polish for the price of one pack of strips! I just can't justify buying them.

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?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
