Guest Post #4: Stephanie from Sincerely Stephanie!

Time for another guest post everyone!  Take it away Stephanie!

Hey all!
I am so happy to be here while Laura is away on vacation, lucky lady! I hope she is having a super fantastic time and I am thrilled to be here :)
I'm Stephanie and I have a little Canadian blog called Sincerely Stephanie. Woo to Laura also living in Canada ;)
I really love Laura's blog and the number of manicures she manages to get in blows my mind! I don't know how she manages to get it all done! It took me awhile to decide on what to post but I finally took inspiration from a purse that I saw on Pinterest! I unfortunately drew out the design on paper and can't find the bag now, anyway onto the nails. 


I started off with a base of Essence Nude It! Then grabbed a striping brush and started with Essence Wanna Be Your Sunshine and zig zagged a pattern across the middle of my nail. Then I used China Glaze Stone Cold and Revlon's Midnight Affair to keep creating lines of zig zags up and down my nail. Then I grabbed a small dotting tool and using NYC French White Tip to dot on two rows of white zig zags. Then added more Wanna Be Your Sunshine and finally added Midnight Affair.

























I really like how this turned out! The zig zags were pretty time consuming, but the overall effect is pretty fun! Here's a close up of my thumb :)


I hope you all like this look! And a great big thank you again to Laura for having me! 
Looks amazing Stephanie, thanks for sending it through!

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!

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.
