Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:

I wasn't sure how opaque or thick Outburst was going to be so I started off with one coat of Essence A Boy Next Door, the best match I had to the blue jelly.  Turns out I didn't need it but oh well.  Once that coat was dry, I applied three coats of Outburst with its mixture of gold holo glitter in two sizes, suspended in that amazing blue jelly base.  I really didn't need the third but I wanted to see if the layered effect intensified on the last coat.  Even with three coats I had no problem getting this polish to dry and omg, the depth of this polish is just stunning.  Since it looked like the sea I applied two different seahorse nail charms from Hex Nail Jewelry. LOOK AT IT MORE:





The Verdict: I've been thinking about it and I'm really struggling to come up with a commercial polish I like more than this.  It's that amazing.  I had so many people comment on my nails because they were just so sparkly.  More than have commented on a lot of my glitter placements!  I even wore this for two days and that just never happens.  So good.  Worth the $15.

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????
