Review: Lacquistry AshBerry Freeze

AHHHHHHH I'M KIND OF EXCITED RIGHT NOW AS I JUST GOT NEW LACQUISTRY POLISHES IN THE MAIL.  You may not think this is that big of a deal but Jenna makes the most amazing polishes and finally has stock again!  She also sent me the most amazing box of glitter but that's totally beside the point.  Look how awesome AshBerry Freeze is.

If you've been on this site for more than a moment, you might have noticed I have something of a thing for glitter - especially holo glitter.  I swear there's a patch in my brain that bribes me with dopamine to look at sparkly things.  I'm not a brain...person but that sounds right to me.  That's just a bit why this polish with it's mix of micro, small and medium fuchsia holo glitter mixed with silver appeals to me so much.  Application was a little tricky but if you keep up-ending the bottle, you get a good mix of glitter.  This is two coats over Sally Hansen Celeb City. 







The Verdict: In retrospect I should have used a contrasting pink or purple for the base colour as you can't see the silver glitter as well as you might have been able to otherwise but whatever, sparkly!

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 …
