Review: Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection

I don't know about you all, but I should probably take a break from the glitter mosaics for a few days.  I'm going cross-eyed!  For a change, I'll be reviewing glitter polishes instead, which is surprisingly different.  I've been lusting after the Sprinkles Collection from Nails Inc for a while now so when I saw them in Sephora the other day I just couldn't help myself.  Rather than review them individually, a kind of Ombre mani it is!  Exclamation marks!

The pink polish in this collection is a little too close to the Deborah Lippmann/Claire's Candy Shop polish so I skipped that one, getting Pudding Lane, Sweets Way and Sugar House Lane.  All three polishes are absolute glitter bombs in a creme base and all of them apply like a dream.  After the hassles with Butter London Knackered, these were so easy to use.  They were opaque in two coats (I used three, you know, cos) and absolutely packed with glitter.  Look how pretty they are!  It makes me really happy to see the the Indie polish scene is influencing the "mainstream" brands, means more glitter for everyone yay! 






The Verdict: I love all these polishes.  They make your nails look like donuts, and given the collection is called Sprinkles, I count that as a successful naming.  They're super easy to apply and I just want to hug them.  Hooray glitter!

The Polishes:

  • Blue: Nails Inc Pudding Lane, $11.50, Sephora
  • White: Nails Inc Sweets Away, $11.50, Sephora
  • Brown: Nails Inc Sugar House Lane, $11.50, Sephora

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

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?
