Review: The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze

For quite I while there I was able to stay away from etsy.  All the glitter, it's like crack to me and I need money to, you know, do adult things.  My resolve cracked the other day when I found out that the Hungry Asian finally ships to Canada.  I managed to restrain myself to the little bottles so five polishes only came to ~$25.  Hooray for more indie polishes to swatch!

I wanted to layer Sneeze Breeze over a matching blue as I wasn't sure how tinted the base was.  American Apparel Neon Blue was a good place to start so on went two coats, followed by two coats of Sneeze Breeze.  Coverage was good, said two coats are enough for opacity.  From the look of it, there isn't too much tint so I really want to try this over a different coloured base.  Soon!  The polish itself is made up of light blue and black matte glitters which I love.  It reminds me of a non-sparkly version of Pretty & Polished Beach Bum but you can never have enough of these types of glitters!  







The Verdict: Love matte glitter and love blues, so this perfect for me.

The Polishes:

  • The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze, mini size, $4.50, etsy
  • American Apparel Neon Blue, American Apparel.

  1. Want so hard. Etsy is hard because they're all American. It's probably better that they don't usually ship to Canada =P

    1. As a fellow Etsy seller, I have to say I don't know any sellers who don't sell to Canada. And contrary to popular belief, we're not all American. Etsy truly has International appeal, and I for one have never had any trouble whatsoever with buying from, or selling to anyone in a different country.

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 …
