Review: Sally Hansen Diamond Strength White Veil

Why is it whenever I've had a few drinks and I have to walk home I managed to make a detour via a Shoppers?  It's a horrible mistake as my resolve to actually use the polishes I have already is weak so I'm completely vulnerable to, say, a new line of Sally Hansen glitters.  It's ok though, cos they're awesome and one can literally never have enough glitter.  LITERALLY.  That's my new thing, over-using "literally" but literally using it correctly.  It's fun.

First up, let's take a look at Diamond Strength White Veil, a most interesting glitter.  I mean, when was the last time you saw a WHITE glitter in a drug store brand?? Along side the white there's also a smattering of gold and black glitter.  I mean, come on! That's so cool!  Application was good, this is two coats over two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  







The Verdict:  I really like this polish.  I love white glitter in general so to see it in a Shoppers is awesome.  I also love the bottle, you can really stir the polish because of the shape.  There were three other glitters there, you'll be seeing those soon, don't worry :)

*****CALL OUT FOR GUEST BLOGGERS ******
As I mentioned yesterday, I'm going on vacation soon and I need some help with posts!  This is a complete experiment so please bear with me.  The response so far has been awesome but I still need more people to help me as I'll be away for a while.  See here for more information.

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

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

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.
