Review: Revlon Dreamer with Circus Glitter Mosaic

We have on our hands, everyone, a manicure that looks great from a distance and took me a great deal of time, but make me want to cry when looking at the macro-lensed pictures.  Let's take a look at the result of most of No Country for Old Men. 

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Dreamer, a nice sky blue creme.  Coverage was good on this one, and the colour is pretty too.  Then, using my usual technique, I added all my glitter in.  The diamonds were the hardest to work with as you have to cut the ends off to make sure you get full coverage at the cuticles and tips, and you'll still get a piece or two that stick up.  Then, for the first time ever, my top coat smeared my glitter on the most intricate nails, as well as pooling in the cuticles.  If I'd just taken a bit more time, been a bit more careful :(







The Verdict:  This was a good idea but something about the base colour I used, coupled with the top coat issues just makes me said.  It is sparkly though and ok when I hold my hand at arms length and squint a bit!

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Dreamer, various locations

  1. WOW it looks great! I mean, I guess I see what you're talking about from up close, but the awesome glittery impact from far away is GREAT. If you don't mind me asking, where do you find your small hex glitters? I only seem to be able to find larger ones ):

  3. I -love- that pinky nail! I don't know why it jumps out at me so much more than the middle finger, since it's the same pattern, but it just does. Now I seriously need to get me some diamond glitter. ^_^ I haven't bothered getting any big glitter, even though I adore your patterned glitter manis, because I knew I didn't have the patience to do it...but for that diamond pattern, I think I will practice. ^_^ Awesome, as usual, milady.

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????
