Review: OPI I Don't Give a Rotterdam

Given the sheer number of times I do my nails a week, you think I'd be better at matching them to outfits, events, etc.   I'm just not that kind of plan-ahead person.  EXCEPT FOR THIS ONE TIME.  My bf's parents are visiting from Australia and we took them to Niagara Falls the other day, complete with Maid of the Mist.  Thus, water-themed sparkly nails!

The hardest part about my glitter nails is finding the right base to go with the right glitter.  The right glitter is always the blue holo glitter in my collection, it's always sparkly and beautiful.  Today, the right base was OPI I Don't Give a Rotterdam, the pretty blue-grey polish filled with gold flecks from the Holland collection.  Application was good with this polish, as you'd expect from OPI, needing two coats.  I really liked how the flecks stood out in this one, they can blend in too much sometimes.  Once dry, I added the glitter polka dots using my usual technique.  Tada, nails to match Niagara Falls :D







The Verdict:  Love I Don't Give a Rotterdam, especially with bright blue holo glitter.  Sufficiently sparkly :)

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????
