Review: Lacquistry Cassandra's Peacock

Ohhhh do I have a doozy for you ladies (and gentlemen, can't make assumptions).  As you may have noticed, I've been working my way through my pile of Lacquistry polishes - first world problem, that's for sure.  I initially tried this one out when I first received it, realised I should have layered it and put it back in the pile.  Consider it now having had justice done, because it's totally awesome!

Being such a chunky glitter, adding enough layers to be fully opaque can cause wear issues.  Not a fault of the polish, more of physics.  So instead of adding three-four coats, I started with a coat of my favourite sparkly blue, Orly Sweet Peacock.  Then, two coats of Lacquistry Cassandra's Peacock.  I can't even begin to describe how much glitter is in here.  There's blue, green, silver, all of different sizes and shapes, it's so amazing.  Because there's plenty of fine glitter in there too, it's just so sparkly and glittery.  It's just the right tone to go with the Orly polish too, so that's a win.  

Tip: To get these thick polishes to dry, add a coat of Seche Vite or the like, then add drying drops.  I didn't think they'd actually do anything but I've had far less problems with wrinkling and marks with them. 







The Verdict: I mean, look at it.  What else is there to say?

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!  

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....
