Review: Lacquistry Oh Yes I Did

I'm not normally the type to be too upset when I break a nail.  I keep them pretty short as I type all day so it's not usually an issue.  However, when it's super low down on my photo hand, I'm sad.  I MUST CONTINUE ON, HOWEVER.  So please, let's take a moment of silence, think of the loss I've suffered.  Now to super super sparkly nail polish!

Lacquistry Oh Yes I Did is amazing.  It's a brown polish (brown!) with copper, blue and holo glitter.  It's so pretty, so sparkly, so unlike everything else I have stashed away, it's awesome.  It even looks good on my tiny middle nail.  Application on this was really good too.  This is three coats but you could get away with two.  







The Verdict:  Oh that last picture makes me sad :( At least the polish is pretty!

As a side note, I'm having a custom polish commissioned from Lacquisty, I'M SO EXCITED THERE'S GOING TO BE SO MUCH GLITTER IMMA DIE, CAN'T WAIT :D

  3. SO freakin pretty. Also I didn't even notice the broken nail until I went back and read the bit at the top. Breaking a nail sucks though.

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!
