Review: Lacquistry Dirty Rich

It's been more than a day so you know what that means!  Lacquistry review!  Totes not sure what I'm going to do when I run out of indie polishes to review but in the mean time, I still have quite the stack to go through.  By the way, how do you feel about "totes", as a word?  It's seeped insidiously into my vocabulary of late so please let me know if it's annoying and I'll stop.  Anyway,  let's take a look at a truly beautiful polish, Lacquistry Dirty Rich.  

Dirty Rich is a blend of black and gold glitter in an ever-so-slightly dark tinted base.  The effect is incredibly, it looks like some fabulous cocktail dress.  The thing I love about glitters like this is that they dry super fast and are opaque quickly.  Application was really good with this, this is only three coats.  I say only, but that's pretty good for a glitter.  With a coat of Seche Vite on the top and some drying drops to help the process along (they actually work, which I found surprising) you get one super sparkly, shiny mani. 






The Verdict: <3.  That's all.

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 …
