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

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

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!
