Review: Nail-venturous Humblebee

It sometimes takes me a few goes to find the right complement to a polish.  I'll try a few different combinations and it just won't be quiiiiiiite right.  I've had Nailventurous (now Ninja Polished owned) Humblebee sitting on my desk for a few weeks now and I've tried a bright background, a black background and a few others and nothing would both go with the glitter and not swamp the black.  The other night I thought I'd give it a shot with a similar lime green - Revlon Zealous - and I FINALLY feel happy with the combination :D

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Zealous, a yellowy lime green polish with a gold shimmer.  It's a super pretty polish on it's own but you'd probably need three coats as it's a tiny bit sheer.  Next, on with two coats of Humblebee.  Omg I love this polish so much.  It's a mixture of yellow-lime-green matte and black glitter.  I mean, come on, that's amazing.  The glitter is ever-so-slightly more yellow than Zealous and together they enhance each other, being very interesting to look at.







The Verdict: Hur hur Maru is wet.  None of my friends are online so I'm telling you, dammit.  Also, yay radioactive robin egg nails!

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Zealous, various locations
  • Nail-venturous Humblebee, ninjapolish.com.  They're out of stock now but the email button works, it's how I got this bottle :)

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....
