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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
