Review: Glitter Gal Red Sparkle

I'm a big fan of routine.  To generate the quantity of posts I like for this blog, I do my nails at night and take my pictures in my lightbox.  I then write the post at lunch at work.  Works for me but means I don't have regular access to the sunlight needed to full show how amazing some polishes are.  Sometimes though, a polish looks so amazing in the daylight that I make a change to my routine as I HAVE to show you.  Glitter Gal Red Sparkly is such a polish that deserves the routine deviation. 

Red Sparkle, funnily enough, is a sparkly red holographic polish.  Those words are completely insufficient in describing how amazing this polish is.  It GLOWS like it's on fire.  In all lights.  In the sunlight it just lights itself on fire, which is why I had to take these pictures outside.  Application was really good, a lot like those holo polishes from A England.  This is two coats but you could almost get away with one.  I'm going to stop talking now, cos I want you to really look at these pictures. LOOK AT THIS.







The Verdict:  I love this polish so much, I didn't even mess with it any way with another colour or pattern on it.  That's rare for me.  It looks like those sparkly finish you get on muscle cars, it's amazing.  <3

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 …
