Okay, no joke – I hate cold weather. A lot. Snow days are great, but otherwise… Winter just isn’t my thing. Normally on a day like today I’d go with a bright warm color, but I decided to embrace the deep freeze with a wintery mani.
I had been eyeing Sparks Fly from Sally Hansen’s new Triple Shine line for a little while, so I was SO excited when it arrived in my Influenster Violet VoxBox for review. Seriously, how lucky am I?
Sparks Fly is beautiful. It has multi-sized silver glitter set in a blue base. My initial reaction, though, was: Uhh what’s the point? Why not just set the glitter in a clear base? I guess the benefit is that when you apply a second (or third) coat – some of the glitter takes on that blue look and the overall effect is quite stunning.
For my wintery mix mani, I layered two coats of sparks fly over two coats of Lex Cosmetics Seattle Sunshine. I am SO Happy with the finished look. I got loads of compliments on it yesterday.
The biggest challenge was making sure that I applied Sparks Fly evenly, I ended up with some blue streaks – it got better with the second coat. I can’t wait to try this over some darker blue polishes and maybe even black.
