Review: Nerd Lacquer Nebula

You know the worse part about blogging about nail polish?  I like to do two reviews a day to make sure you lot have plenty to read but it means that every day, one polish only gets to be worn for about 20 minutes.  Also, once I've swatched a polish, I feel like it would be a waste to wear it again as it means there'd be one less thing to blog about.  I felt sure I'd be safe with Nebula cos surely it can't be as good as it looks in the bottle.  WRONG WRONG.  This polish is amazing and I'm an idiot for just swatching it.

Nebula is a beautiful, deep purple-red so full of glitter I don't even know where to start.  There has to be at least 10 different kinds in there.  Application was a breeze, this is two coats and the coverage is perfect.  It's another of those heavily pigmented jellies which I've recently come to love it as brings such interesting depth to the polish.  LOOK AT IT








The Verdict:  I love this so much, I don't even know what to say.  It's so glossy, so sparkly, I think I might actually wear it again *gasp*.

  1. I wanted this when Nerd Lacquer was open but I did't get it because I already bought 4 polishes but damn it now I regret not getting this. It's soooo beautiful. :(

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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
