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

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.
