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>

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

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.
