Review: Zoya Fei Fei with Half Moons

I went on a bit of a Zoya rampage the other day.  Trade Secrets is my main source, living in Canada, and I've been trying to avoid it lately as I'm trying to be a proper adult and not spend all my disposable income on polishes.  Anyway, I was there and magically five Zoyas came home with me and that's that.  Let's take a look at one of the standouts, Zoya Fei Fei.

I was particularly attracted to Fei Fei as there's so many different colours in would could have so easily been just another glass fleck polish.  On close up, there's blues, greens, yellows and greys that all come together in a shimmery blue-grey.  Because I can't just do a swatch, it seems, I thought I'd throw in a half-moon.  I recently found my binder reinforcement labels and used them on top of Rimmel Black satin to create the moons.  One coat of Fei Fei was enough, surprisingly.






The Verdict:  Pretty!  And half moons.

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....


My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images!
To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle of …
