Lacquistry and Deborah Lippman Haul

I love Mondays for the simple fact that parcels tend to filter through the postal system over the weekends and land all together at my door.  I got a super special couple of parcels today, one containing five Lacquistry polishes and one my ultimate lemming, Deborah Lippman Across the Universe.  And let me say right up, I was not expecting Across the Universe to not be the best polish I got in the mail!


First up, here's the full set I got today.  Keep reading for further description and MEGA CLOSE-UPS.



These polishes, funnily enough, are very clearly named!  On the left is Winter No. 1 and on the right, Golf Socks.  Winter is a predominated blue glitter with soooo many different sizes and shapes it's difficult to keep track.  The big pieces are absolutely huge!  My next post will talk about this one more, check back. 

Lacquistry Winter No.1 

Lacquistry Golf Socks!  I love this one, such a good colour combo. 

Next up, Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus and Lake Placid on Acid.  Circus is the one that really stood out for me, I love a large glitter without the micro glitter mixed in.

Finally, Across the Universe is mine!  I'm sad though as it's thoroughly outshined by the over the top glitters!  Also pictured here is Shredded, a shredded black glitter.  I'm excited to try this one!

Deborah Lippman, Across the Universe.  Pretend you didn't just see the others and look how pretty!

Shredded, close up.  This one's going to be interesting.

The Verdict:  I can't wait to try out all these different glitters.  I just wish Across the Universe had gotten here sooner! I've tried A Friggin' Circus and Winter No. 1, check back shortly for the full review.

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....

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle

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.
