Before we get started, I wanted to tell my loyal readers that since I'm getting married in one month from today(!!!!!), I'm going to be giving my nails a bit of a break. I'll still paint them from time to time (for the next Polish Days for example), but I'll be trying to leave them bare more often than not.
That doesn't mean I won't be posting! I'd especially love to answer some language questions from you all, so send 'em in! You should also follow me on Facebook and/or Twitter, as I post lots of things there that aren't quite blog-worthy.
Moving along! I don't know why I keep insisting on swatching holographics when I know my camera can't really handle it...but they're so pretty! Today I have Orly Sparkling Garbage from their new Mash Up collection. It's a pale teal jelly with a metric crapload of tiny holographic glitter in it. This stuff nearly seared my retinas in the sun!
First off, here's a shot in the shade, where the glitter looks silver. You can see how tightly packed it is!

And here's the obligatory out-of-focus rainbow shot. Even though this is a scattered holo, there is just so much glitter that at times it almost looks like a linear holo!
Finally, this lightbox shot shows off the color of the base a bit better.
The formula on this was very nice, better than other Orlys I've tried actually. I didn't get any bubbles or pulling. Even though Sparkling Garbage is a jelly, the glitter does a pretty good job at hiding my nail line.
I wish I could show you the full glory of this polish, but trust me, if you like holos you'll love this!
I bought Sparkling Garbage at Sally Beauty Supply ($7.19 for 18 ml, only $6.49 if you're a member of the Beauty Club). Orly polishes are 3-free.
The polish in this post was purchased by me. All opinions are my own.
