Review: Love and Beauty Royal

Guys guys guys, guess what: I managed to not over-embellish a polish!  Ok, that might have been a bit over-dramatic, but I'm still proud of myself for not ruining what turned out to be a really beautiful polish.  I scout out a large range of locations for polish so I end up with a ton of cheap polish that I never end up using.  When sorting through my collection the other day though, I noticed this Love & Beauty polish and couldn't help but try it out.  

Love & Beauty Royal is a beautiful midnight blue duochrome, with glass flecks that change from green to blue to purple.  Did I mention it's also super sparkly?  The polish itself is a little thin so I layered it over one coat of Rimmel Black Satin.  I'm so glad I did, two coats on top and it was perfect.  I've tried to catch all the colours here but it's really hard.  Looking at it closely while I'm typing now, I can see all three colours but of course cameras are rarely as co-operative. 







The Verdict: Not back for $3 hey?  I found this one in Forever 21 here in Toronto, but I'm sure you can find it around the place.  So sparkly <3

  1. that is SO pretty! they do make some great polishes, my f21 seems to be clearing them out or something though, the last 2 times ive gone they've had hardly any and they were all terrible shades.

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!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
