Review: Nerd Lacquer Cyance Friction with Matte Top Coat

I find that a night, when I do my nails, I'll play around with a couple of different techniques to varying levels of success.  Take last night for example.  I had my heart set on a black and holo snakeskin stamping thing but I kept not waiting long enough for everything to dry and it just wasn't right.  Of course, by the time I gave up, it was laaate so I did what I do every time I run out of time - indie swatches!  There's always so much glitter in Nerd Lacquers, Lacquistry polishes and so on that I can bang one out quickly.   Which brings me, finally, to Nerd Lacquer Cyance Friction!

Cyance Friction is just the most gorgeous shade of turquoise and packed with all types of copper and aqua glitter, topped off with a pink sheen, just like Entirely Unlike Tea.  Application was really nice, I only needed two coats to be happy with the opacity.  As an extra touch, and to keep it with the stone roots, I added a matte top coat.  Such a pretty colour and looks really interesting matte.






The Verdict:  Nerd Lacquers never disappoint and Cyance Friction is no exception.  I don't think I have any other turquoise polishes, so winner for me!

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.
