Review: Sephora by OPI If You've Got It, Haute It

After a holiday, the sensible blogger must not immediately raid all shops for polishes that come out in the preceding two weeks.  No, she must only get the select few, those that are truly worth showing.  Turns out that's hard and when I first got back I may have gone a bit silly with the polishes I bought.  Let's take a look at the (mercifully) single never Sephora polish I bought, If You've Got It, Haute It.  Yes, that is actually what is printed on the bottom of the bottle >.<
IYGIHI - even the acronym is ridiculous - is a charcoal grey polish backed to the glitter with black, charcoal and opalescent glitter.  It looked so sparkly in the bottle, I couldn't resist.  Application was not great with this one - the brush is huge and the polish a little thick, despite being a sealed bottle.  I was excited with the first coat as there was a ton of black glitter standing out but that was quickly overwhelmed.  The end result after three coats is reasonably interesting, looking like marble or sparkly river stone.  It's just not as interesting as it looked in the bottle. 






The Verdict: Meh.  With the amount of polishes Sephora has, choose something else cos this really isn't worth it.

  1. This is why I never buy polish over $5. I'm in constant fear of hating what comes out of the bottle =( (Also I'm poor...)

    1. !!! That being said, it still looks interesting! Layer it over black maybe? You might like it better.

  4. Looks like they were trying to imitate China Glaze's Some Like it Haute... I still like the CG polish better, even though their formula is pretty thick and clumpy. The CG polish is also slightly lighter in color.

  5. I'm kind of in love with this one, after trying it on yesterday at Sephora! I kind of want it now, if only I was allowed to be spending money right 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?

Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

Hi everybody!  Sorry for neglecting you, life is hard.  I've still been doing nails but taking that extra step to take the proper pictures and edit them and actually write words is just a step too far lately.  To make up for it I did a mega sparkly mermaid mani!  With glitter that clocks in under a mm!  For what's probably very close to a thousand pieces of glitter! YOU STILL LOVE ME RIGHT????
