Review: Lacquistry Hey Cowboy Swatches

I've been having quite the love affair with Lacquistry polishes lately.  Every single one I get and try is better than the last and is always just perfect.  Some have massive hex glitter that I always like, some are just rainbow glitter and all are so sparkly, so pretty, so unlike just about everything else on the market.  Hey Cowboy is no exception.  It's different to the other Lacquistry polishes I've tried so far but this just might be one of my favourites.

Hey Cowboy is a massive glitter bomb consisting of blue and gold micro glitter accented with larger silver pieces in a clear base.  I was really happy with the application with this one, the pictures below are three coats but it was pretty much opaque at two and doesn't need a base colour.  Once on, I couldn't believe how sparkly this was.  I kept twinkling my hands around all day today and getting distracted in meetings, it was too good.  It reminds me of something my Jem doll would wear when I was a kid, it's awesome. 






Man, doesn't this look awesome on the close up?  Dried super fast too which always helps. 

The Verdict:  I've long since touted the virtues of the huge hex glittered polishes from Lacquistry but I think I almost prefer Hey Cowboy.  Sure, the glitter is more understated (heheheh) but it's smoother and super sparkly.  Keep it up, Jenna!

Lacquistry polishes are available from Jenna's Etsy store at http://www.etsy.com/shop/Lacquistry.  Her shop is currently closed but if you can get your hands on these, it's super worth it!  Just don't go the ebay route, that doesn't help anyone :)

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.
