Reddit Nails!

For those that don't know, I'm pretty big into a site called Reddit.  It's just a site to aggregate links and content but on top of that it has the most amazing community.  I've met all my friends here in Toronto from all the meetups we have and there's an amazingly supportive nail art community in Reddit Lacqueristas.  Without the support from everyone there, I wouldn't still be doing this.  So, as a very small token of appreciation to everyone, redditor or not, I present to you Reddit Nails!

To start with, I used my favourite nude, Orly Pure Porcelain.  Then, using a small brush and the acrylic paints I got at the art store for $6, I freehanded the following design. 





The Verdict:  I'm happy with how these came out, mostly because they're so cute.  Gotta keep practising with the paints though :)

Side note:  The Reddit Monthly Meetup is on this weekend at the Artful Dodger in Toronto.  I'd love to meet some of you!  And don't worry, every single person there, of the 100 of us, would have had to come alone for the first time, and we don't bite :)

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!

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....
