Review: Sephora Formula X Voltage

I have a bit of a love/hate relationship with the Sephora Formula X polishes.  I love them, because they're gorgeous and hate them because they're $15 each.  I hate them a bit more for being so gorgeous I'll PAY $15 each.  After Outburst was so stunning the other day, I had to get the red one, Voltage.  Next pay I'll probably get the other three.  Sigh.  Let's bask in sparkliness, shall we?

Voltage is an absolutely amazingly awesome red jelly polish, packed with different sizes of gold holo glitter.  I don't know what it is, but I'm obsessed with the layered effect you get with these polishes.  I didn't want to have to worry about opacity here so I started off with a thin coat of Urban Outfitters Spiked Punch.  I then layered three coats of Voltage on the top.  You can get away with two but sparklies so three for me.  I sealed everything in with a coat of Seche Vite and stuck on some Hex Nail Jewelry because I like them for accents.  Sparkly!





The Verdict: Of course I love this.  My fingers still hate red polish but don't care, this is too awesome.  The formula is great - you don't have to dig for glitter - and it's just sparkly all the time.  I'm sitting here at work under fluorescent and natural light and they're rainbowing all over the place.  I'm just sad I'm going to have to buy the other three now.  At $15 each :( silly Canada.

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?

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
