Review: Transparent Polish from Witchcraftery Inc.

As I normally do, I was derping around the internet when I came across a polish that claimed to make your nails transparent.  Shenanigans, thought I, I won't be fooled!  Polishes have made a lot of big claims in the past but that's a bit ridiculous.  I couldn't get it out of my head though and when I saw it on sale for $79.99 down from $199, I thought, why not.  It arrived on Friday and I was hesitant to try it as I was sure it was just going to match my skin colour or something.  My mind exploded when it ACTUALLY. MADE. MY NAILS. TRANSPARENT.

Application for this polish was not easy.  First, you had to coat your nails in the supplied base coat and explain exactly what your surroundings looks like, for exactly six minutes.  According to the booklet, the more descriptive you are, the better the effect.  Then, time for three coats of the polish itself, waiting two minutes and 36 seconds between each coat.  Finally, the top coat.  The first time I tried this it was bit cloudy and according to the forums this means I wasn't descriptive enough.  The second time though, it was perfect!




The Verdict:  I hope you'll forgive a departure from my normal poses, seeing my hand through my nails was creeping me out so I had to make sure an interesting background showed through.  This polish may be pricey but the effect - just amazing.

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

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
