Review: China Glaze Electrify and Riveting from the Hunger Games Collection

Today is the day that I do things that have already been done by heaps of people but I don't care cos I'm super interesting!  Otherwise known as yay, I finally got the polishes I wanted from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection!  It seemed like I just kept missing out on the good polishes from the collection so colour me happy when I finally found Riveting, Electrify and Smoke and Ashes at my local beauty supply store - on sale no less.  Given that it seems as though the first two are designed to go together, together they shall go!

First up, I added two coats of Riveting, the brilliant orange glass fleck foil.  It's so sparkly and aggressively orange, it's great.  Application was nice too, the two coats were plenty.  Once dry, I used my usual glitter gradient trick, painting Electrify two thirds of the way down my nail on one coat, and a third down on the second.  Let me tell you, the combination is super sparkly and really does look like fire.  Given that I've just started reading the books, I now know this is relevant!







The Verdict:  I'm glad I finally have these polishes.  Everyone and their dog may have already reviewed them but I can see why, it's a great collection.  So sparkly.

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?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
