Review: China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada

I really need a better way to organise my polishes.  I have a Helmer but it's not really big enough to hold my full collection >.<.  As a result, I dig through my bag of polishes and often find surprises, like my neon green China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada! Soooo neon greeeennnnn.

This polish is a little tricky to work with.  Neons are notorious for being streaky and draggy at the cuticles and this wasn't much of an exception.  By the third code the coverage was live-withable but not as good as the American Apparel Neons.  As I felt neon green wasn't striking enough, I then added glitter dots in pink, purple and blue, using my usual technique.  I love how this came out, truly visually assaulting, which is always a goal for me. 

By the way, what do you think of my new lighting system?







The Verdict:  I think I prefer a neon yellow or orange to green but it's nice to change it up once in a while.  I like the colour combo too.

The Polish:

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????
