Nerd Lacquer Haul!

Oh my, ladies, did the mail fairies ever smile on me tonight!  After waiting and waiting, my latest shipment of Nerd Lacquers finally arrived!  I'm so excited, I managed to snag six of them when the Etsy store was open a few weeks ago.  I just haaaaaaaad to show you, they're so pretty.  You will be seeing a lot of these soon!



Keep reading for lots of close-ups....


First up, Warrior Ethos and All of Time and Space.  These two are some of the ones I wanted the most, especially the latter cos look at it!  Mint green with silver and pink glitter?  AWESOME.

Next up, Entirely Unlike Tea and Nebula.  Look how lady-like the former is, can't wait for that one. 

Lastly, Event Horizon and Cyance Friction.  <3<3, look how much glitter there is in these!

  1. Great haul!

    Tip for nerd lacquers: I've found it a LOT easier to get out the huge glitters if I store the bottles upside down overnight before applying. It helps a lot!

  3. Very jealous! I made an order with her when she opened her shop the other day. I wanted to get Nebula but I had to reign my buying in and just got 4 of them instead of like all of them. Lol. Can't wait to see swatches! :)

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle

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. 

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....
