Review: Transparent Polish from Witchcraftery Inc.

As I normally do, I was derping around the internet when I came across a polish that claimed to make your nails transparent.  Shenanigans, thought I, I won't be fooled!  Polishes have made a lot of big claims in the past but that's a bit ridiculous.  I couldn't get it out of my head though and when I saw it on sale for $79.99 down from $199, I thought, why not.  It arrived on Friday and I was hesitant to try it as I was sure it was just going to match my skin colour or something.  My mind exploded when it ACTUALLY. MADE. MY NAILS. TRANSPARENT.

Application for this polish was not easy.  First, you had to coat your nails in the supplied base coat and explain exactly what your surroundings looks like, for exactly six minutes.  According to the booklet, the more descriptive you are, the better the effect.  Then, time for three coats of the polish itself, waiting two minutes and 36 seconds between each coat.  Finally, the top coat.  The first time I tried this it was bit cloudy and according to the forums this means I wasn't descriptive enough.  The second time though, it was perfect!




The Verdict:  I hope you'll forgive a departure from my normal poses, seeing my hand through my nails was creeping me out so I had to make sure an interesting background showed through.  This polish may be pricey but the effect - just amazing.

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 …
