Re-review: Nerd Lacquer Cold & Calculating

 Sometimes, if I don't feel like digging through the reusable shopping bag holding most of my polishes, I like to pick a polish I reviewed a long time ago, re-do it, and feel superior over myself from January this year.  Yeah, past-self-put-down five! Let's take a look at a polish I first reviewed all the way back on January 4th, Nerd Lacquer Cold & Calculating

Cold & Calculating is a purple franken polish with a frosted purple base and a smattering of pink and silver glitter.  As with a couple of other Nerd Lacquer polishes, I suspect this has been mixed with Kleancolors.  I've always had issue with Kleancolors taking ages to dry and this one was no exception.  Even with a Seche Vite top coat and drying drops, four nails have wrinkled, rage.  I'm not really sure why I reviewed this one again - it wasn't especially impressive back in January and still isn't...







The Verdict:  What a surprise, I'm better at painting my nails now than seven months ago!  Cold & Calculating still isn't very exciting, although I do feel special as you can't buy it any more which really makes this post all the more pointless, but whatcha gunna do!

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....
