Review: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy with Gold Holo Glitter

Guys, I'm struggling with inspiration a bit lately.  I've just done so many different glitter manis that it's getting quite difficult to come up with new ideas.  Or ideas that are different enough from what I've done a bunch of times already.  I spent two House episodes last night effectively just staring and stirring my little bags and pots of glitter, hoping for inspiration to strike.  I got a bit stuck on my gold holo circle glitter so that was the winner.  It's really hard, guys!  At least China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is amazing. 


Same process as always here.  Three coats of Flip Flop Fantasy, a neon coral polish quite deserving of the hype.  It's been out of stock for ages at my beauty supply place and I can see why.  It did take three coats to even it out but it's just so vibrant that's ok.  It's really hard to capture in photos!  Once my three coats were done I went to town with my usual method of top coat and an orange stick.  Usual column down the middle, then build out each side.  It's funny, as I'm typing this, I can't get over how different it looks on my nails right now, over these photos.  I'll post the picture down below, trust me, it's better in person.  At least you can see how sparkly it is. 






The Verdict: Like the glitter, love the polish, didn't really do the both of them justice.  Any maybe when I start my time off on Monday I'll get back to my more enthusiastic self.  Tis 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?

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????
