Why Yes, I Am Going to Have Fun Playing Tonight

Just a quick post to show you what finally arrived in the post today!  After something like a month my American Apparel polishes finally arrived! Same day as the 25 piece stamping kit! And the same day I hit up Shoppers and Winners for sales!  Yay!  </exclamationMarks>

  1. 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!

    1. 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.

      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 :)

  2. @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.
    Overall, if you can't afford platinum Konads, these are pretty darn good.

    1. 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.

Review: Nicole by OPI A Million Sparkles is Accurately Named

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
