Quickie post on reflective curling...

I had a couple lovely comments on my last blog post claiming I had curling glitters / tacos in my swatches of HARE Bisbee, and claimed my reviews were dishonest.

What is reflective curling, you ask? Well, from my understanding, it is glitter that looks like a damn taco in pictures, but lies relatively flat on the nail. Now, I say "relatively" flat on the nail, because most large glitter will not be completely flat, even solvent resistant glitters. Most glitter polishes (and I include those from non-indie brands) dry gritty, bumpy, textured, icky, and I always wear a topcoat with my polishes to get a glass-like finish.

Anyways, since I'm a classic Type A personality, I came home and wanted to take some pictures to show you that indeed, my personal bottle of HARE Bisbee (that I purchased, tyvm) has reflective curling, and not tacos.

Clearly, I can only speak to my own bottle of this polish. If I had tacos in my polish, believe me, I would not try and conceal that from you! I mean, especially in a post where the polishes were ones I purchased myself!!! Aiiish.

For the following pictures, I grabbed an empty roll of tape since it has a curvature to it and won't absorb polish. Sorry this is the ghetto-est thing on earth. Hopefully you'll get my point!

A 2 coat swatch of the polish (no topcoat), with a highly suspect looking area to the right of the American flag:

And here it is from an angle showing you that the super taco-y looking glitter, is not a taco after all.

And from the side:

If you ever have a bottle of indie polish that has tacos, please do contact the vendor you purchased it from (whether it be Llarowe, Overallbeauty, or direct from the indie creators). I can assure you they would like to know about these issues first hand so they can make things right (and also so the indie creators can burn that bad batch of glitter they got from their suppliers lol!)

Hope this post helps!

And yes, one of my New Years resolutions is to stop having to be right about everything.


  1. I wasn't the one who originally submitted the comment about the curled glitter, but I really really appreciate you clearing this up! I learned something new about nail polish/glitter polish, and it really shows that you're willing to deliver high quality, honest, content. Thanks for running a wonderful blog.

  2. Good on you for clearing this up! *high five* Some people out there are less than intelligent...

  3. " Tasty, gold taco" gave me a giggle. Pretty genius using the tape roll to show that the glitters lay flat!

  4. I LOVE YOU. That is all.

  5. I've never seen you post a dishonest review... people should know what bloggers to trust.

    LOL @ "the taco is a lie"!

  6. I wish I could like this comment. xD

  8. Hey, I had that with mine too! They curl a little bit but indeed with topcoat you can smooth them out :).

  9. I'm LOLing at your ghetto tape method but in all seriousness, it's the best way I've seen to really demonstrate tacos/not-tacos. I have Bisbee, and I've seen some damn taco glitter, and Bisbee is not one of them (nor any of my HAREs).
