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

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!

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....
