Review: Urban Outfitters Red Planet

If your eyes are sensitive and prone to melting out your face, AVERT YOUR EYES.  What I have to show you today is so eye-ball punching, it's almost painful.  What's more the point though is that I'M AT THE AIRPORT RIGHT NOW, BLOGGING FROM THE GATE, ABOUT TO GO FIRST TO LA THEN TO AUSTRALLLLIIIIIAAAAAAAAAAAAA.  That's right, I'm so dedicated to you all that I am willing to blog from here.  I'm also very very tired so anything seems like a good idea.

Anyway, onto the nails.  A while back I bought a bunch of Urban Outfitter polishes and am only now getting around to using them.  Urban Outfitters Red Planet is the brightest, sparkliest glass fleck pink with the edges going orange I think I've ever seen.  Application was decent, what you see here is three coats.  Once it was dry, I used my paper labell-y things to create the triangles.  It's not too hard to do: cut a triangle out of something, place both halves on your nails with a gap in the middle and paint away!  I used Orly Sweet Peacock, as sparkly a blue as the pink is pink.






The Verdict:  OMG I love this pink.  Combined with a colour that you're not allowed to put with on the webs if you're making a colour scheme, all the better!  So sparkly, sparrrklllly.  So sleepppyyyyy and eye-hurty now.

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!
