Ever Wondered What Happens if You Layer ALLLLLL the Flakies?

The other day I had quite a lot of fun reviewing five different flakie polishes from Ludurana.  While fun, I felt there could just be MORE.  The polishes tend on the sparse side and it just was too subtle for me.  Why not, then, COMBINE ALLLLLLLLLLL THE FLAKIES!!

What you'll see below is quite the stack of polishes.  First up, two coats of my favourite black, Rimmel Black Satin.  I think I might do a review soon of my favourite blacks, whites, reds and top coats, might be interesting.  Anyway, to start off I added one coat of Essie Shine of the Times.  Next, a coat of Finger Paints Flecked, the blue-green flakie.  Next, I added two caots of the yellow-blue Ludurana Chuva.  I wasn't totally happy so I added coats of Sol and Vento!

And here you have it, quite possibly my busiest nails ever! You're going to want to see the close ups on this.









I love how many different colours you see here.  UNICOOORRN BARF


The Verdict:  What else is there to say other than I <3 flakies! These look completely different depending on the light.  In my bathroom they look all orange-green, under my desk lamp it's all blue-yellow, it's awesome. Comparing them though, Shine of the Times and Flecked are betting in terms of coverage but the Ludurana still have lots of different colours and you can actually buy them...

  3. We have the same favorite black polish! Also "Unicorn Barf" is spot on! This is a GORGEOUS mani! I'm so jealous. I only have SH Hidden Treasure (which I love) but I wish I had something with blue flakies, and maybe something with purple or red.

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:
