Triange Glitter Taping

So this is post 180 or so.  I'm finding it harder and harder to come up with different ideas.  Must read more of the tubes!  Anyway, a while back on Reddit I saw an amazing taped mani with a sparkly glitter triangle.  If you know the one I'm talking about, please let me know and I'll add a credit in.  I've been looking for an excuse to use Nicole by OPI Rainbow in the S'Kylie so this seemed like the perfect opportunity.

First up, two coats of Gosh Black Passion, a dark charcoal grey with a little shimmer in there.  I have a bunch of Gosh polishes as they keep being on sale but haven't gotten around to using them.  I was pleasantly surprised.  They applied well - two coats - and were fast drying.  Before adding the tape, added a quick coat of Seche Vite to really get it to dry.  Once completely dry (seriously, just wait five more minutes) I cut out tape triangles and added a coat of the glitter.  What you see here is actually just one thick coat of glitter, the coverage is amazing.  If you have sticky tape, just press it to your hand first and it should help stop it pulling up the base colour. Top coat and you're done. 






The Verdict: I love how this came out.  The coverage on Rainbow in the S'Kylie is so good, it's the perfect choice for the accent.  Yay glittarrrrr!

  2. I almost bought this yesterday but I wasn't sure how the glitter coverage would be. I will definitely have to go back and get it!

  3. Really loving this look.

    I have always failed horribly with tape manis but it probably isn't as bad with glitter polish. I'll have to try it out. :)

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

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.

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!
