It's amazing what you can find when you wander around at night. My favourite time to go shopping is ridiculously late and I'm extra happy when it pays off. I've been looking for Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles for a while now at that couldn't be more up my alley if it tried. I finally managed to find it in a Shoppers last night and it really does live up to its name. A Million Sparkles is a predominately blue glitter that has an amazing ability to look like a foil after a couple of coats. Combine that with gold, silver and pink bar glitter and you have a winner. It's seriously so sparkly I got distracted from what I was saying at lunch today. Application is decent but you really need four coats to get completely opaque coverage. That's ok, glitter dries fast. It's a little rough too but nothing Seche Vite can't fix. The Verdict: Yay glitter! If, like me, you like sparklies to the point where it's the biggest tag on y
I'll be curious to see how the Bundle Monster plates work. I've been super tempted to buy a set on Amazon, but some of the reviews aren't super great. :( I'm crossing my fingers that they're awesome! Can't wait to see you use them!ReplyDelete
I'm actually really happy with how the Bundle Monster plates work, especially given how cheap they are. I think the defining factor in success is how dense the polish you use is and how well you scrape and stamp. I can't imagine that the Konad plates are that much better, tbh.Delete
As for the plates themselves, I much prefer the patterns on the 25 pc set. They have a bunch of full nail plates and I got so many ideas unpacking them last night. They also seem bigger than the 21pc.
Either way, it's fun to do, something different, worth trying out if you've got an extra $25 lying around :)
@Tia, I've got the whole set and I've been using it since before Christmas. They're... okay. In italics. I've got some Konad's for comparison and the Konads are definitely deeper and higher quality, but at six dollars a plate versus like 25 for $17, honestly, I'll take the slight downgrade in quality for quantity. They aren't sharp and have never cut me.ReplyDelete
Overall, if you can't afford platinum Konads, these are pretty darn good.
Hmm yeah I totally understand that the BM stuff is cheaper. I've been most interested in a plate that has an entire nail design. I have 3 random Konad plates, but I was never really able to have too much success with them. But they're also from YEARS ago, so maybe the quality has improved.Delete
Oh how lovely!! Have a super bunch of fun!! :DReplyDelete
O0o0o! I cant wait to see what you do with all that stuff!!!ReplyDelete
