Review: Lacquistry And Miles to Go Before I Sleep

So I'm a bit of a silly face.  Here I am, lamenting the fact that I'm trying to behave myself and not buy polish when it means I can't have my fix of indie polish goodness. The fact that they're almost impossible to get aside, it was nice to have a steady supply of sparklies to show all you lovely people.  Gazing at my indie drawer of my helmer (yes, I have an entire drawer full of indie polishes - you jelly :)?) I realised: there are like 10 polishes in here I haven't even a bit tried.  Aww yeah!  Brace yourselves, you're getting a few of these posts over the next week.

Let's start off Indie Week (sure, let's call it that) with a lovely Lacquistry lacquer (alliteration!), And Miles to Go Before I Sleep.  This polish is absolutely beautiful.  Despite being filled with silver micro glitter and silver holo hex glitter, it manages to look white in the bottle and over Sally Hansen Celeb City.  It looks like snow in the sunshine, all frosty and sparkly.  Application was really good.  I just needed the two coats over the base colour and it was good to go.  







The Verdict: Love it.  Anything that makes silver glitter look more white, seemingly by magic, is good by me.

Where to Buy:  Let me apologise in advance for all the indies I'm going to be posting.  I don't even know when or how you'll be able to get them.  Hopefully the indie market will calm down a bit soon but in the mean time, maybe stalk Etsy for new buyers?

$8.75 + shipping, Lacquistry Etsy store.

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 …
