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?

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y
