Review: Lacquistry Hey Cowboy Swatches

I've been having quite the love affair with Lacquistry polishes lately.  Every single one I get and try is better than the last and is always just perfect.  Some have massive hex glitter that I always like, some are just rainbow glitter and all are so sparkly, so pretty, so unlike just about everything else on the market.  Hey Cowboy is no exception.  It's different to the other Lacquistry polishes I've tried so far but this just might be one of my favourites.

Hey Cowboy is a massive glitter bomb consisting of blue and gold micro glitter accented with larger silver pieces in a clear base.  I was really happy with the application with this one, the pictures below are three coats but it was pretty much opaque at two and doesn't need a base colour.  Once on, I couldn't believe how sparkly this was.  I kept twinkling my hands around all day today and getting distracted in meetings, it was too good.  It reminds me of something my Jem doll would wear when I was a kid, it's awesome. 






Man, doesn't this look awesome on the close up?  Dried super fast too which always helps. 

The Verdict:  I've long since touted the virtues of the huge hex glittered polishes from Lacquistry but I think I almost prefer Hey Cowboy.  Sure, the glitter is more understated (heheheh) but it's smoother and super sparkly.  Keep it up, Jenna!

Lacquistry polishes are available from Jenna's Etsy store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Lacquistry.  Her shop is currently closed but if you can get your hands on these, it's super worth it!  Just don't go the ebay route, that doesn't help anyone :)

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?

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!

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night.  My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off.  I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried.  I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats.  Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner.  It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today.  Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage.  That's ok, glitter dries fast.  It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix.  The Verdict:  Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y
