Ozotic 534: OMG THE RAINBOWS

I love Mondays as it usually means that any number of parcels filter through the system to be delivered at once.  Man, did I get a good parcel today as my latest order from Harlow & Co arrived!  Inside, the most amazing polish I actually have ever seen - Ozotic 534.  SO.  MANY.  RAINBOWS.  The base polish is a blue-purple but it's hard to see for all the holographic particles.  LOOK: 




What you see here is two coats of the polish over one coat of Sally Hansen Navy Baby with a coat of Seche Vite over the top.  I just cannot get over how many colours you see in this polish.  The two pictures above show full rainbows but are heavier on the blues and purples.  Look at this next one though, so much red! 



Application was nice, as was the brush.   Could you imagine what this would look like in one coat over a red or a bright blue?  *drools*




The verdict: BUY IT BUY IT BUY IT.  It may have been $17 but it's soooo worth it.  I was impressed by Glitter Gal's 10 to Midnight but this one just blows it out of the water.  If you ever wanted a holographic polish, treat yourself to this one, you won't be disappointed.

  1. Well. I know where I am spending most of my next paycheck.
    By the way, your blog is fantastic! I just did my first extra-cool manicure (chromatic gold triangles on eggplant purple), all thanks to you. :) Keep being awesome!

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....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

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
