Review: The Hungry Asian Vote for Purple

It's tricky sometimes, when I order polishes from Etsy.  I have an extreme affinity for glitter so glitter is what I get.  What do I do though to make said polishes interesting for everyone though?  My answer is usually layer it over an unconventional colour or do a gradient.  The Hungry Asian Vote for Purple gets gradient!

My question to you:  what else can I do with awesome glitters other than layering and gradients?

Anyway, let's take a look at Vote for Purple.  It's super pretty with a ton of lilac glitter in micro and small hexes.  I chose Sally Hansen Celeb City here cos I thought the silver and lilac would be nice together.  And they are!  For the gradient here, I used my normal technique (kitty, it's hard to type when you're head butting my hands.  I'll pat you in a minute) whereby I paint the top two thirds of my nail, then half, then the top third. With a glitter in a clear base you can get a good gradient going like this. 






The Verdict: This one was so pretty to wear, I'm a fan.  I have to find different ways to show off glitter like this though.

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
