Review: Nail Venturous Voodoo

Hello hello, am back from my lovely weekend away although, brace yourselves, my nails were not happy about spending three days in a lake.  Fortunately I had some backup posts, while they recover for a bit.  So I've had Nail-Venturous Voodoo sitting in my drawer for a while but have been struggling to know what to do with it.  I bought it along with a bunch of other black and white glitters and it just kept getting overlooked in favour of more layer-able, clear based polishes.  Screw it, thought I, one can certainly have black nails in the height of summer!

Given that Voodoo has quite a dark base, I decided to do nothing fancy and start with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin, my go-to black.  Next, two coats of Voodoo.  The polish itself it very dark and filled with black, white and grey glitter.  Quite the bold choice with the black glitter, as it's only likely to show up over the lighter glitter.  I like it though, for that very reason.  The consistency was decent, although you do need to leave this one upside-down for a while to make sure the glitter is distributed evenly.  









The Verdict:  Not the most weather-appropriate nails given how summery it is in Toronto right now, but yay night time snow nails!  Not the most versatile polish but it sure is purty.

The Polishes:

  • Rimmel Black Satin, drug stores
  • Nail Venturous Voodoo, $9, ninjapolish.com

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 …
