Guest Post #3: Julie from Bright Little Buttons!


Why hello! You might remember me, I used to write posts for a blog!  Anyway, I'm back to a country with marginally more available internet so time to get back to it!  As promised, I'll be keeping the guest posts coming so here's a lovely mani from the lovely Julie from Bright Little Buttons!

I’m not very creative when it comes to nail polish designs, so I like designs that are easy to do and don’t require a lot of special tools!

This is one of those designs.  Both polishes I used were NYC In a New York Minute Quick Dry polish -- Water Street Blue and MoMa.  They were each $1.72 at Wal-Mart.  I made homemade dotting tools with two different types of straight pins with different sized ends stuck into pencil erasers!

I started with two coats of Water Street Blue.  Then, I dotted several dots of MoMa on each nail with the larger dotter.  When I was done with that, I put a dot of Water Street Blue inside each of these dots with the smaller tool.

This design is so easy to do, and this polish goes on really smoothly.  And it’s cheap (I rarely buy polish over $2)!






The Verdict:  Love it Julie, thanks!

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:
