Review: Dollish Pollish Expecto Patronum

Oh yes, Dollish Polish does have some iiiiiiinnnteresting polishes, which is just about all that I ask.  I managed to get a bunch when her store was open last so let's take a look at  that one that was closest to me on my desk, Expecto Patronum.

Expecto Patronum is a really pretty polish.  White base, blue/green glitter.  I'm really happy with the coverage on this one.  It was a little sheer at the start but with three coats it's completely opaque.  Look how interesting it is on.  As the base is a little sheer you get that great layered look with the glitters underneath. All kinda ghostly and pale but with green accents, it's cool with me. 






The Verdict:  *sigh*.  Indie Polish Makers, you make me so happy with all your beautiful creations.  Keep it up :)

Dollish Polish's are available from the Etsy store here.

  2. This polish could be called poop on a stick, and I would still need it. The fact that it's a Harry Potter reference means I NEED IT.

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....

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!

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
