A Tale of Two Lauras. No, Whore Island Can't be a Title, Laura

Hi.
This isn't Laura. This is another friend named Laura. Confusing? Maybe it's because you're dumb.

Point is, we did our nails this Saturday instead of going outside and rejoicing in nature's bounty. We stayed in and watched youtube of Ukraine's Got Talent. Clearly, we are two tragic individuals.


Anyway, we did each other's nails. I like greens, so I did Laura's in a light/dark green (American Apparel's 'Crescent Heights'/WarPaint Beauty's 'Slime) chevron. For me, Laura's famous sequins had to make an appearance.

To achieve the green chevron, we taped the shapes we liked (simple triangles) over top of a dried base coat of the alternate color. Once applied, a swift, thick coat of the top color was applied, the tape removed, and the shape cleaned up or reapplied as necessary.








For me, a simple taupe (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in 'Steel Grey') was necessary; my nails are currently shorter than I like them, so I wanted a simple single colour to offset their lack of length. Laura applied the brown sequins individually, something I would never attempt for myself due to a complete lack of coordination.





Actual, real, proper Laura's Verdict, and Interjection: Yay nails.  That's all I got.  I can also say what I want and otherfver1BGVF G H H s sSTOP MESSING WITH MY KEYBOARD DOUCHEBAG

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....
