Review: Sally Hansen Thinking of Blue + Bonus Red French

Every couple of weeks or so, a friend of mine and I make the comparatively epic journey to Sally's in northern Toronto.  The first few times we went it was awesome as they're the one place I know of that sells Orly and Finger Paints.  However, the past few times we've been my opinion of them has fallen drastically because 1) they don't see a problem selling an two entire cases of Finger Paints Special Effects to one person and 2) never getting anything new.  So, to spite them, I went to the Rexall nearby and bought all the on-sale polishes!  Notable in the polishes I picked up was the following, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure in Thinking of Blue (urgh, pun-tacular).

I've always been a fan of the Complete Salon Manicures as I like the brush and the application is always simple.  Thinking of Blue was no exception, it applied nicely in two coats.  It's a really pretty blueberry creme, too.  As I can't leave manicures along, I just had to give my nails red tips, as I love the colour combo.  Looking through my stash, I couldn't go past A England Perceval - a stunning, rich, metallic red.  I have this one all ready to be reviewed with pics so check back soon for that one. 




Don't you love how rich both these colours are?  I especially love Perceval, it's so rich and is opaque in just about one coat.



The Verdict:  I'll be reviewing Perceval in a separate post so I'm just going to sum up Thinking of Blue for now.  It's such a pretty colour, applies really well and you can usually find the Complete Salon Manicure polishes for about $5 in various drug stores.  A winner in my book.

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

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!
