Review: Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having in Half-Moon

I have something of a love/hate relationship with half moons.  For the longest time there was something about them that skeeved me out but then I got those binder reinforcements and actually tried it and was surprised by the results.  Ever since, every time I use just a single colour my brain goes "Psst, hey, what if you did a half moon thing on this?".  Why I chose to do it over glitter is beyond me as now I get all the pain of removing this without the full glitter effect but foresight has never been my strong point.  

This initially started off as a straight review of Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having, an absolutely pink glitter bomb.  There is every kind of pink glitter in here, it's awesome.  Application was tricky though as this is super thick and likes to drag around the cuticles.  I had to shake the bottle between fingers, it's that thick. For some reason though, mostly because the glitter dries fast, I decided to do a black half moon over the top.  I then added pink and white dots and I think this time the embellishment worked for me, it makes it extra-interesting. 







The Verdict:  I'll Have What She's Having is ok, nothing super special.  It's pretty but very rough and tricky to apply.  Works well with a black half moon mani though, especially with the dots.

  1. I really like this one, turned out super-cute but sort of edgy!

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!
