Snow and Ice Glittery Mani Featuring Sephora Indi-go With the Flow

 I picked up this lovely indigo (ish) glitter at Sephora during my annual bonus mega haul and have been trying to come up with a way to put it to good use.  Looking through my stash, I thought it might go well with an interesting Sally Hansen Complete Manicure polish I picked up at the same time.  Together, they make a lovely icy, snowing mani, good with the snow we've been having recently.

Indi-go With the Flow is an indigo glitter in small and large pieces, in a clear base.  It almost looks silver on the nail which takes away a lot of the unique-ness.  On, it's really not that interesting.  In the bottle it looks like it could go all the way to actually being, well, indigo, but as you can see it just doesn't translate.




Underneath the glitter is Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Lavender Cloud.  This one is actually interesting as it's soooo close to being white and yet can still be called lavender.   I just haven't seen anything like it before.  The coverage is nice although what you see here is three coats.  Pale colours always do need that extra coat.  I think I'll keep this one around to show off interesting glitters, as an alternative to hard white. 

Finally, for something different, I added a coat of Milani Jewel FX in silver.  I've written about that one here, if you want to know more about it.


SUPER MACRO MODE ENABLED!




The verdict: Meh to Indi-go With the Flow, yay to Lavender Cloud.  Indi-go is just like so many other glitters out there, hex glitters in multiple sizes, could pass for silver.  Lavender Cloud is really pretty and is a great alternative to white.  The brush is great too.

On a side note, I got a new lens for my camera!  You'll be seeing a lot more of the super macro shots so check back soon :D

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....

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. 

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!
