Review: Revlon Sweet Tart and Sally Hansen Ionic Indigo

Oh magnetic polishes.  Sure, you're a cool gimmick but you're just not that interesting once the polish has dried.  Your colours aren't particularly special (special to me either being sparkly or bright) and you're usually expensive too.  That being said, I have a few of them but like to mix up the application.  With my rolls of striping tape arriving in the mail last night, I couldn't resist combining the two.  I've done it before, but I love how it turns out so too bad!

First up, two coats of a new Revlon polish I picked up the other day, Sweet Tart.  It's a perfect pink bubblegum creme that happened to contrast nicely with Sally Hansen Magnetic Ionic Indigo.  Once the Seche Vite on top of Sweet Tart was dry, I added the striping tape in the sunburst pattern.  Looking at it, I should have either fully committed to the sunburst pattern or stuck with vertical stripes, but whatcha gunna do.   Next, on went the magnetic polish, using the magnet before the polish dried.  Off comes the tape (my favourite part) and viola!







The Verdict:  I think I preferred my first go at this particular mani but I still like the colour combo here.  I love the pink here.

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Sweet Tart
  • Sally Hansen Ionic Indigo

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????

MOAR GLITTER YES SPARKLIES GOOD VERY MUCH YES.  I'm such the wordsmith.  What I lack in wordies, I make up for in sparklies!  Cos I have another mermaidy thing to show you!  This one is purple, pink and gold!  I have even made the glitter available if you wanna try.  You know, if you aren't chicken.  Bock.  I HAVE HAD A LOT OF COFFEE THIS MORN, DEAL WITH IT.
