Review: Joe Fresh Hunter Swatches in a Glossy French Mani

 Every time I go grocery shopping, I have to run the gauntlet with the 3 for $10 stand of Joe Fresh polishes.  It's about 50/50 whether I can make it out unscathed.  Part of the reason I find them irresistible is that there are just so many plain colours that I wouldn't normally buy.  That, in a very roundabout way, is my way of introducing Joe Fresh Hunter, a really pretty hunter green.  It reminds me of a country club or a vintage car, really pretty.

The application for this polish was surprisingly good.  Despite having six or seven of these lying around, I've always found something sparklier or more bold to play with.  Hence my surprise when this applied in two coats and came out super glossy.  I do have a coat of Seche Vite on the top but it's shiny on its own.  To finish off the mani, I added black tips using Scotch tape.  I can't seem to paint them freehand so the tape always helps.





See how shiny these came out?  I would also have to say this one of my neatest manis ever, both in application and the tips.  I've found lately you can get really good results for a French by sticking the tape incrementally to your nails, sticking down just the edge, so you can get a curved line.




The Verdict:  I'm not normally in to greens but this one is so shiny, so sophisticated that I'll definitely wear it again.  I think I'll have to try out more from Joe Fresh, especially if this one is anything to go by.

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. 

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....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
