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

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.
