Review: Sephora Formula X Jolt with Black Matte, White Pearl and Silver Dazzle Glitter!

Ooooo I'm excited today because I have the fruits of late-night eBay binge to show you!  I got so carried away the envelope the glitter came in was HEAVY.  My boyfriend handed it to me like it was bomb, going to explode glittery all over him.  Inside, FIVE new circle glitters, three of which have that amazing finish the OPI I Snow You Love Me has.  I FOUND THAT GLITTER GUYS.  So of course I had to bung a bunch on my nails.  Over an amazing hot pink, no less. 


I think I might have to do a whole post on the base colour I used here, the amazing Sephora Formula X Jolt.  There's just so many flakie particles in the hot pink base, it's just stunning up close.  The blue shimmer in the bottle doesn't translate on the nail the strongest but the matte finish is great.  Anyway, after applying three coats of Jolt, I went nuts with my black matte, white pearl and silver dazzler circle glitter.  When working with such big pieces, you have to apply a really thick base of your slow drying top coat.  You then need to press each piece deep into the top coat - without it spilling over the glitter - so that it sits flush.  As usual I started with a column down the middle and worked outwards.  Because I pressed the glitter deep, the finish here is amazingly smooth after two coats of Seche Vite.  I haven't lost any pieces yet!






The Verdict:  I'm kinda loving the colour combo and how the different finishes interact with each other.  From a distance it looks like I have studs and rhinestones on my nails and that's always awesome.  The fact I FINALLY got circle glitter this big to sit flat is awesome too.  So winning all around!

All glitter is from The Glitter Store UK on eBay.  I bought all the glitter here myself :)

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?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

Neon Color Club Watermarbling with Gold Unicorns!

Oh hi!  Did you have a good holiday/break time thing?  I did.  I did lots of sleeping which, when it's cold, is just about my favourite thing.  So cozy, with so much cat hugging time cos she's cold too.  I've been doing some nails but I've just not been super feeling many of them.  My real nails have having a bit of a rough time with the weather and then using acrylics doesn't help in the long term.  Anyway, time for some eye-meltingly bright neon watermarbling!  With gold unicorns!  Cos they go with everything!  Woo!
