A Floamy Gradient

Today, something of a little twist on the usual to show you.  I have, in fact, already reviewed all these polishes but I couldn't resist giving it a shot, because it's awesome. I present to you, with the absolute minimum of rambling introduction cos I'm sleepy and I haven't had coffee yet, a gradient with Nail Venturous Floam and Orange You Unique!

It's tricky to know how much to write about these as I have already talked about both at length (here and here, if you're intererested).  Floam, as a gradient polish, is tricky.  I initially started off by using a makeup sponge but it was sucking up too much of the polish, bad if Floam is in short supply.  I used the brush instead and found it hard to get a smooth gradient going.  I got better toward the end, if that's worth anything.  After only coat 3/4 way down my nail I added a coat of Orange You Unique to the half way point, for those delightful white pieces.  Topping it off, just a little Floam on the tips.







The Verdict:  Still love these polishes, especially Orange You Unique as a gradient.  MORE MATTE GLITTER PLEASE, INTERNET.

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:
