IT'S MY BIRTHDAY SO I'M HAVING PRINCESS NAILS DAMMIT

Well, today I turn 27.  To distract myself from the fact I haven't done much in the past few years that I'm totally not getting old, I'm having Disney princess nails, dammit!  I found the princess temporary tattoos in a supermarket in Australia, of all places, and had to have the right occasion to wear them.  What better time than my birthday?  COS I'M A PRINCESS YAY :D:D:D

So, to start with, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin and one of the holo top coat from Etsy, same as yesterday, followed by a coat of Seche Vite cos I'm impatient.  Then, once it was dry I cut out two princesses from my sheet (Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty, because they're both blonde like me) and applied them to my thumb and ring fingers.  The remaining fingers was the jewel and silver pattern from the border.  I found the best way to apply these is just like you did as a kid: peel off the outer layer, stick on, soak for 40 seconds with a makeup pad and slide off.  Add a top coat so they stay on.  Voila, princesssess :D:D:D







The Verdict:  How could I not love these?  It's not so obvious what they are so I'm fine in my male-dominated workplace (oh, being a female programmer) but I know I have princess nails! HAVE to find more tattoos now.

  3. You're a programmer? Cool! I was a CS student and nails/makeup/hair are never noticed by male programmers anyways. :)

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!
