Review: A England St George

Once in a blue moon I manage to just do one polish and LEAVE IT AT THAT.  Turns out you just need the right polish.  Let's take a look at A-England St George.

St George is an absolutely gorgeous forest green holo polish.  The holo isn't terribly noticeable but it gives the polish great dimension.  Application is really good too, you only need two coats and the second one is only really there to smooth it all out.  I'm not normally into greens but I can make an exception for this one.  







The Verdict: I feel so sophisticated with this polish.  No crazy glitters, neons, just a rich dark green.  It's nice.  I did actually try putting glitter over this polish and DO NOT DO IT, IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD, trust me.

  2. I wouldn't have believed it was you! No hand-placed glitter in sight.

    It still looks gorgeous though - it's a lovely rich colour. I think I'd feel quite fancy wearing it too.

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 …
