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.

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????
