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?

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 …
