Review: Cha Cha Twist from All That Glitters

Onwards my friends, to try all the different indie polishes out there!  You might recognise this one as a particular stand out from the haul I got in the mail yesterday from AllThatGlitters, another wonderful etsy seller.  This is my first shipment from here and if the other polishes are anything like Cha Cha Twist, I'll be getting way more in the future.

I just had to start with Cha Cha Twist, it's such a stand out glitter.  Combining hex, square (yeah, square) and bar glitter in lots of different sizes in teal, blue, red and black, I can't think of another glitter polish like it. What you see below is two coats over Orly Sweet Peacock, a bright sparkly blue foil.  Application was decent for this polish although I got a lot more interesting glitter when I upended the bottle for a couple of minutes.  It's a little gloopy but there is so. much. glitter. you wouldn't expect anything else.  I love the colour combination in this, looks so good on.






The Verdict: I have five other glitters here to try and if Cha Cha Twist is anything to go by they're all going to be awesome.  Have I mentioned again lately how much I love black and square glitter?  I love that there's both in here :D

  1. Woah. I was considering this one, but once again, I am SOLD once I see your pictures xD But, is this just Cha Cha alone, or is it on top of a blue polish? Just wondering :)

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....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
