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

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

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
