Review: Revlon Stormy with Glitter Patterns

I'm not the most mature person in the world.  I have the sense of humour of a six year old and get jealous and one-uppy easily.  It's ok, I'm ok with it.  What it means though is that when I see a post like this on Reddit, I'm immediately consumed with the need to match it.  Don't know why, that's just what my brain thinks will be fun.  Brain, one day we'll learn.  Does mean I have sparkly nails though.

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Stormy, a grey-beige cream.  I kinda like these kinds of colours, given me a break from neons and makes me feel a bit more like an adult.  You know, until I cover it in glitter.  Then, using my small silver holo glitter and my usual technique, I created my different glitter patterns.  I think my favourites here are either my index finger or my ring, both are new for me and quite interesting.  





The Verdict: Yay, glitter for everyone and everyone should all the glitter all the time!

  1. What sort of top coat do you use? It's so bubbly!

  2. I see on the close up of your middle finger that there are a few overlapping pieces of glitter. I was just curious if they stuck together before you placed them, or if you placed one, couldn't move it and laid another on top of it for better positioning. I only wonder because I just found some glitter and was going to try hand placing it, but it was soooo static-y that I wasn't having much fun after having to take care to isolate each glitter before working.

  3. This is so pretty! I wish I had the patience to do something as gorgeous as this!

  4. This is really unique. I bet it was very zen-like placing the glitter. My favorite pattern is actually your thumb.

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 …
