Experimenting with Orly Pure Porcelain and Silver Foil

Two experiments with things I don't normally use today: nude colours and silver foil!  I recently received Orly Pure Porcelain in the mail from the lovely Kitty at kittypolishnbags mostly because it was there.  I never get super excited about nude colours but this was cheap so I threw it in.  I've also had a little pot of silver foil sitting on my desk for a while now, the complement to the gold foil I tried out a few weeks ago.  Why not try both? 

First up, omg  Pure Porcelain is the most amazing nude colour.  The lighest beige with a hint of pink, it seems to work perfectly with my skin tone and cover nicely in only two coats.  It's going to be my polish underpants from now on, it's so good.  Once I'd added the two coats, I carefully smoothed and cut out the silver foil, added the tiniest amount of top coat to the corner I wanted to add the foil to and stuck it on.  Even using a cotton pad, I just couldn't get this to be as smooth as I wanted it to be.  I've seen a tutorial somewhere where it's perfect but couldn't find it.  As I couldn't get it perfect I just added random shapes and called it a day. 






The Verdict:  I love Orly Pure Porcelain and it looks great with a silver accent.  I think the issue might be with the foil itself.  The one I got is wadded up in a pot which puts me at a disadvantage before I even start.  Might have to find some more as I like how this looks with a nude colour.

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....

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. 

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!
