Review: Pretty & Polished Candy Coated

Onwards to review all the indie polishes!  I've got another from the haul I received last week to show you today, this time Candy Coated from Pretty & Polished.  Look at that, my shorted segue into actually talking about the polish yet!

Candy Coated is a pretty baby pink with a ton of purple and silver glitter smattered throughout.  As a side note, I'm really having to get creative lately with my use of adjectives.  There really is only so many ways to describe glitter in a polish :).  Anyway, application for this was really good, this is three coats as I'm not quite done growing out the terrible green stains on my nails.  The glitter distributed itself evenly which is always nice. 







The Verdict:  Looks like candy, as advertised.  Reminds me of those chocolate eggs you get at easter which makes this quite well timed.  Super girly, super cool.

  1. This color is beautiful! I wish I could get a hold of it. :( I was never one to really paint my nails, but thanks to your blog, I'm now obsessed and loving it!

  2. You know what? I'm so jealous if you it's insane.
    You have so many amazing indie polishes, but when I look on Etsy they're either on holiday or the shipping to the UK is horrendous :( I would love to find some UK indie nail polish sellers but I don't know any!

    1. :( I'm super jelly of people that live in the States. We in Canada get charged ridiculous shipping despite being so close to the border.

      Is there anything I can do to help? Want to do a swap? For example, I'm dyyyyying to try Fantasy Fire but hate to resort to ebay for such things.

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!
