Review: China Glaze How About a Tumble!!

So I have something a little different to show you today.  I went to dinner last night with my friend Laura (who likes it when I talk about her, cos she then appropriates the entire post as being about her) and walking back, we came across a salon with $10 manicures.  Done!, says we.  I was just excited for someone else to do my nails, as well as to try a new polish, without having to buy it.  Inside, though, I couldn't believe my eyes; A POLISH FROM THE CHINA GLAZE KALEIDOSCOPE COLLECTION.  I'd heard about people finding the China Glaze holo polishes in out-of-the-way salons but never thought I'd actually find one. It it my great pleasure to show you How About a Tumble, an absolutely gorgeous lilac holo China Glaze polish!

It may have only been $10 but I think my (male!) manicurist did a good job.  After a nice cleanup and rub-down, he applied three coats of How About a Tumble.  It's a little sheer but you get decent coverage after three coats.  I just can't get over how gorgeous this polish is.  Not only have you got that beautiful scattered rainbow, but you get a nice soft lilac colour and a decent sparkle even in non-direct light.  It's also wearing really well too.  






The Verdict:  OMG, I love this so much.  You can bet your bum I bought this off the guy, even though it's used, and at $8, it's quite the bargain.  I love the soft colour and strong rainbow.  I can tell that this is going to get me hooked on dusty hunting though :(

The Polish:

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
