Review: Crows Toes Heartless

I've talked about this before but I have a bit of a problem with indie polishes.  I love them, I order way too many off the internet but when it comes time to use them I get a bit stuck.  There's only so many times you can find a complementary base colour, whack the glitter on and then talk about the composition and the consistency.  Odds are, someone's already done it, and probably done it better.  So I feel the need to get creative with it which is hard which is then why I don't post them that much.  ANYWAY, I did actually do something interesting with a very sparkly pink polish from Crows Toes, so let's take a look. 

To start with, I applied three coats of my current black, Essence Back in Black and topped it off with a coat of Seche Vite because I wanted it to dry faster.  Once it was dry and I had waited five more minutes after I thought it was dry, I cut out my zig-zag piece of painter's masking tape and applied the glitter.  Heartless (the polish) is pretty thick so I just needed the one coat to get this level of opacity.  The glitter itself is amazing, super sparkly with different sizes and shades of pink holographic glitter.   Once done, another coat of Seche Vite applied, and I'm done.






The Verdict:  Love the polish.  Heartless is just so sparkly and pink, how could I not love it? It applies well over black too, not patchy, which is always a bonus.  I'm not super sold on the design, but it'll do.  SPARKLYYYY :D

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????
