Review: Hello Kitty Violet Salome

Someone made the comment that apparently I'm 12.  It's not the most unreasonable comment - I do like all things sparkly, had princess nails for my birthday and just generally a little bit 12.  Sticking with that analogy, let me show you one of the Hello Kitty nail polishes I found in Australia, a shimmery duochrome Violet Salome.  

Other than sparklies, I also can't seem to resist a polish that has that oil slick colour shift around the edges.  Violet Salome is a classic example.  It looks mostly a reddish purple but right on the edges it shifts to green.  I am physically unable to stop myself from buying these, if I see them.  To test this polish out properly, I started with a coat of black polish, as I wasn't in the mood to layer on five coats.  I then followed it up with two coats of Violet Salome.  Despite being my least favourite shade of purple, the amount of sparkle that comes off this, combined with the different colours in different lights, it was worth going through having to buy a Hello Kitty product.








The Verdict: I love the colours this throws off at the edges.  It's been wearing well thus far and is super sparkly so it makes it a winner in my books.

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 …
