Ms. Sparkle "Be Proud, Live Loud!" Collection

Hello lovelies!

To show support to the LGTBQ+ community, Ms. Sparkle created a wonderful new collection called "Be Proud, Live Loud!". Half of the profits will be donated to a LGTBQ+ charity. It is a wonderfully diverse collection, appropriately so :) 

Let's have a closer look:

"Gay" is a white crelly filled with holo glitters of different sizes and shapes in all colours of the rainbow. It is opaque in three thin coats, two if your nails are very short. Of course it needs some NPB Glitter Food before applying glossy top coat. It applies well and no fishing or placement is needed. I happily wore this for a couple of days! 

Of course I needed to see it matte:

"Lesbian" is a cold red based flakie polish with holo ucc flakies, holo micro flakies, crystal flakies, shreds and holo micro glitters. It is opaque in two easy coats and a true sparklefest with some glossy top coat. It's pretty when matte as well:

"Bisexual" is a blurple glitter crelly with a pink shimmer, holo micro flakies, violet shreds, purple micro glitters and navy holo glitters.  It is opaque in two coats and the large shreds need some NPB glitter food before applying top coat. It's also pretty when matte, although much less sparkly of course:

"Asexual" is a gray crelly with violet shimmer and different sizes hexagons and micro glitters in white, silver and holo black. That purple shimmer is absolutely stunning! It's opaque in two-three thin coats and applies easily. The shimmer called out for some mattification:

"Genderqueer" is a vivid green crelly with a violet shimmer and holo sparkles, inspired by the genderqueer flag. I love it. It is opaque in three-4 thin coats and applies like a charm. The purple shimmer in this one is magic as well. 

Next up is "Intersex", a white crelly with blue and pink dots in different sizes. I applied three coats. The larger glitters require very little fishing, although some placement is required. I applied NPB Glitter food to smooth it out, before applying top coat. Of course this crelly needed mattifying as well:

This one is the sparkliest of the bunch. It is "Pansexual" - a blue based flakie polish with ucc flakies, holo micro shreds and flakies, crystal flakies, hexagons and pink (holo) glitter. Look at that depth... wonderful! Opaque in two coats, it applies well. The flakies also screamed "mattify me!", so there we go:

And then there's "Transgender", a pink based chameleon polish with scattered holo. It can be worn on it’s own, but also over black undies, so I decided to create a gradient of black to nothing before applying two coats of "Transgender". Needless to say this pretty got me loads of compliments. 

Last, but not least, is the "Straight Ally". It is a black jelly with different sizes and shapes (holo) glitters in different colours, micro glitters and white mini hearts. So pretty! I applied three very thin coats, glitter food and glossy top coat. Look at that beautiful depth! The different colours are brought out even better when matte:

And that's all she wrote, folks! Isn't it a beautiful collection?

It will be available tomorrow, June 1st in Ms. Sparkle's shop.
