Review: Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus

 Lately I've gone just a smidge overboard with the Lacquistry polishes.  They're just so different and so sparkly, I can't help myself.  One of my favourite types of glitters are those that just have large pieces, none of this trying-to-break-it-up-with-micro-glitter nonsense.  So when I saw A Friggin' Circus on Lacquistry's Etsy store, I just had to get it.

On to the application.  Application is always tricky with large pieces of glitter but this was pretty decent.  The pictures that follow are two coats over Rimmel Black Satin (my go-to black polish, by the way) and I've got some decent coverage happening.  To finish off, I added the usual coat of Seche Vite.  Omg, this was so sparkly on.  Take a look at the last picture in the group, just look at all the points of light happening!





Dammit, I love this polish.  If I had more patience, I'd spread the pieces out more but it still looks awesome. So many colours and I just love the lack of micro glitter.



The Verdict: Seriously, look at that last picture, how much more sparkly could you get?  This was a great polish, no chips or wear and just a dazzling array of hexagons that kept distracting me from conversation.  Keep up the excellent work, Lacquistry!

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
