Review: Sally Hansen Salon Effects in Frock Star

I had grand plans for my nails last night - something like a half moon gone made, with different colours but something about it was just off and I won't stand for off!  Given it was late and I was likely to ruin a standard mani overnight I turned to my ever reliable back up - Sally Hansen Salon Effect Nail Polish Strips in Frock Star.  I love glitter and this is just so sparkly, I love it. 

Using my normal technique, I applied the strips.  This particular style is a little trickier than usual as you have to file through or trim pieces of glitter off the ends of your nails.  Once on though, omgsosparkly.  I like these as you don't have to wait for them to dry, they're designed well and last well.  Winning combination for me.  Oh, and in case you're wondering, that is a ring I'm holding :D








The Verdict:  The Sally Hansen strips are my favourites out of the Sephora and Claire strips I've tried.  This is the fourth time I've worn this particular glittery one and I love it every time.  Yay glitter!

  5. I like those strips but they're so expensive for just one use! You can get a bottle of higher end polish or a couple of bottles of cheaper polish for the price of one pack of strips! I just can't justify buying them.

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.
