Review: Scotch Naturals Lemon Highlander with Dots

I actually have something different to show you today!  Wandering around Queen West in Toronto, I  happened on a store that actually sells Scotch Naturals polishes.  I'd seen them on Harlow & Co before but couldn't understand the higher price tag so ignored them.  Turns out that they're actually water based, with no odor.  Had to try.

There were a few colours to choose from but I went with Lemon Highlander, a frosty lemon yellow polish.  Application was a little strange.  I needed four coats to get full opacity and the consistency is just a bit...strange.  Not bad, just different.  They are right about the smell though, it hardly smells at all which would be useful to those with sensitive noses.  I applied this last night and aren't seeing any signs of wear yet.  

As I can't seem to leave a colour alone, I added some black dots with my largest dotting tool followed by a white dot in the middle.  I tried another, smaller black dot on my thumb but it looked too much like eyes and until I break out the googly eyes I bought the other day, that's a line I don't want to cross.






The Verdict:  Like the colour, love the lack of smell but at $15 CAD it's a little on the pricey size, especially with the small bottle.  Worth trying if you have a problem with smell.  This also passed the compliment test, already had two in-person comments today.

  1. This is really a pretty yellow! Have heard the wear isn't that great on this brand since it is water based and not chemical based. Maybe you could let us know>

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?

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!
