Review: Revlon Beguile with Electric Mermaid Scales

A while back I invested in a nice lighting setup.  Being two panels of fluorescent lights suspended facing either other, it gives nice, even white light that makes colours look true and my skin nice.  My problem is that  having no direct points of light, I lose all my holo-y goodness and that makes me sad.  Which is why I've had this post sitting for a few days as it makes sad.  The glitter used here is my favourite blue holo hexes and in these pictures it just looks shiny. It's the same type of glitter as this mani.  

To start, I used Revlon Beguile, a blue-purple duochrome.  This one needed three coats as it's a little sheer.  On my ring finger, Sally Hansen Celeb City as I wanted to try something different for the accent nail.  Then, using my usual technique, I added the glitter.  I did a slight variation this time - using Seche Vite as the glitter base as opposed to my usual no-name top coat.  If you're going to use Seche Vite, just add a little patch at a time and work fast as it dries quickly and your glitter won't stick.  







The Verdict: This one was so sparkly in person, I'm sad I couldn't convey just how awesome it was in the photos.  Take my word for it?

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?

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????
