Review: Revlon Silver Coin with Fimo Flowers

In an effort to keep showing you new and different manis (I'd totes do a glitter mosaic every day (and totes is ok to use, I checked :) )) I've been trolling through ebay and ordering things to stick on my nails.  It's surprising the amount of stuff you can get sent to you for maybe $2, including shipping.  I ordered striping tape, fimo sticks, fimo pre-sliced pieces, stickers, you name it. I've had these pretty fimo flowers sitting on my desk for a while now so I though I'd give them a try.

First up, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin.  I couldn't find my Sally Hansen Celeb City but Silver Coin does well for a silver.  It's not as sparkly as Celeb City but application was decent at two coats so..there you go.  One thing I learnt with these is that you have to really let the base colour dry before you start on the fimo.  Once it was dry, and using nail glue, I stuck each piece on to my nail.  They actually held on quite well.  I was able to do laundry without any falling off.  They're a high maintenance look, that's for sure, but if you have a fancy occasion they'd be a nice accent.  Also, I toootttally didn't stick anything together with the nail glue, that's just silly :D






The Verdict: There's something about fimo I love, so naturally I like this look.  With a strong nail glue it's quite durable too.  Yay flowers!

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!

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....
