Review: Hello Kitty Violet Salome

Someone made the comment that apparently I'm 12.  It's not the most unreasonable comment - I do like all things sparkly, had princess nails for my birthday and just generally a little bit 12.  Sticking with that analogy, let me show you one of the Hello Kitty nail polishes I found in Australia, a shimmery duochrome Violet Salome.  

Other than sparklies, I also can't seem to resist a polish that has that oil slick colour shift around the edges.  Violet Salome is a classic example.  It looks mostly a reddish purple but right on the edges it shifts to green.  I am physically unable to stop myself from buying these, if I see them.  To test this polish out properly, I started with a coat of black polish, as I wasn't in the mood to layer on five coats.  I then followed it up with two coats of Violet Salome.  Despite being my least favourite shade of purple, the amount of sparkle that comes off this, combined with the different colours in different lights, it was worth going through having to buy a Hello Kitty product.








The Verdict: I love the colours this throws off at the edges.  It's been wearing well thus far and is super sparkly so it makes it a winner in my books.

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.
