Lacquistry Tepes Swatches!

I think I'm going to stick to my rule for making posts: when in doubt, review another Lacquistry polish!  I've been making it my mission lately to try as many indie polishes as I can but Lacquistry keeps on being my favourite.  Nerd Lacquers are a very close second but who could resist someone that makes polishes like Tepes?  

Tepes is an absolute glitter bomb with all manner of bronze glitters packed in a slightly tinted base.  That would be good on it's own but it also somehow manages to be duochrome as well.  Bronze in some lights, pink/purple in others, it's just so pretty.  Application was really good on this one as well, this is three coats and is fully opaque, no base colour.  I hope Jenna keeps doing the dense glitters like this as they're much easier to work with than the large-hex glitters, as much as I love them. 







SOOOOO MMMUUCCCHH GLITTTTERRRRAAAAAA

The Verdict:  I'm eagerly awaiting the Lacquistry etsy store to open as it's been closed for the past couple of weeks.  I neeeeeeeeeeeeeeed more glitter.  Also, Tepes is beautiful and I really don't have anything else like it in my stash.  I mean, bronze with pink/purple colour shifts?  Awww yeaah.

  1. Wooooow. I can't wait until Laquistry's etsy opens up again, because of you I'll be placing a big order! I heard that the lady who runs it has been unwell lately, I hope she's feeling better.

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.
