Review: Sally Hansen Misbehaved

It's tricky, being a nail blogger and having to deal with flying 22 hours from Toronto to Melbourne.  Not so much the flight - I have resources to deal with that.  It's more about how I'm going to go more than a day without doing my nails.  I hate it when they chip as I end up picking it all off and that's ever a good look.  Instead, I decided to go with my most reliable Sally Hansen Salon Effects, Misbehaved, the fishnet stocking print.

Using my normal application technique, I whacked these on.  There's something really durable about this particular pattern.  I've worn these for five actual days before and not wanted to claw it off so victory there.  I also like the pattern, nothing too obvious and in your face, just patterned and non-chipping.






The Verdict:  Always a good one this one.

So, I might be a bit flakey with posts over the next few days but it's only because I'm literally either in the air or at my parent's house and their SATELLITE INTERNET isn't 100%.  I'll be featuring a lot of guest posts (thanks to everyone that sent them in, I got them all!) so keep your face pointed in this blogs direction, it's about to get guest-posty

  1. Yeah, I don't know what it is about this particular pattern, but it's the only one of those that stayed on my nails more than a day or two without chipping. AND, bonus, I have gotten more compliments when I use this pattern than with any other of the stick on nail strips.

  2. Great idea for a long haul--I haven't used these before, mostly because most of the patterns I've seen look fun for maybe an accent nail but are a little much for me to do a full mani with. This is one is a cute compromise, though. Fun but, like you said, not all up in your face. ;)

    Hope you have an awesome trip! I'm planning a long-distance trek this summer too and am not looking forward to the nail situation. On the plus side, nail shopping I can't do here!

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 …
