Review: Sparkly Hearts with China Glaze Son of a Peach and Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It

I've talked about this before but I'm still finding it really hard to come up with innovative ways to show you all the indie polishes I can't seem to stop buying.  Sure, I could just pick a contrasting base colour and just go nuts but I feel like a ton of people already do that, and do it better.  When I realised my shape cuttery things worked with painter's tape (I didn't have any luck with regular tape - it gets stuck in the thing) I though I'd find a nice sparkly glitter polish, and get sparkling hearts. 

China Glaze has some great new neons out for summer and of course I bought a bunch.  A stand-out was Son of a Peach, a really great peach creme, funnily enough.  Once the three coats and the Seche Vite was properly dry, I cut out my hearts, pressed the tape to my hand to make sure it wouldn't pull up the base colour, then laid on Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It, a mix of pink and blue micro holo glitter.  Not much more to say about this really, other than the glitter was a nice consistency is super sparkly. 







The Verdict:  I ruin myself with hand-placed glitter manis.  It's hard to get too worked up about something like this when I could be sparklier, could be neater.  Sparkly, though?

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....


Ocean and Sand Teeny Tiny Glitter Mermaid Nails!

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????
