Review: Lacquistry And Miles to Go Before I Sleep

So I'm a bit of a silly face.  Here I am, lamenting the fact that I'm trying to behave myself and not buy polish when it means I can't have my fix of indie polish goodness. The fact that they're almost impossible to get aside, it was nice to have a steady supply of sparklies to show all you lovely people.  Gazing at my indie drawer of my helmer (yes, I have an entire drawer full of indie polishes - you jelly :)?) I realised: there are like 10 polishes in here I haven't even a bit tried.  Aww yeah!  Brace yourselves, you're getting a few of these posts over the next week.

Let's start off Indie Week (sure, let's call it that) with a lovely Lacquistry lacquer (alliteration!), And Miles to Go Before I Sleep.  This polish is absolutely beautiful.  Despite being filled with silver micro glitter and silver holo hex glitter, it manages to look white in the bottle and over Sally Hansen Celeb City.  It looks like snow in the sunshine, all frosty and sparkly.  Application was really good.  I just needed the two coats over the base colour and it was good to go.  







The Verdict: Love it.  Anything that makes silver glitter look more white, seemingly by magic, is good by me.

Where to Buy:  Let me apologise in advance for all the indies I'm going to be posting.  I don't even know when or how you'll be able to get them.  Hopefully the indie market will calm down a bit soon but in the mean time, maybe stalk Etsy for new buyers?

$8.75 + shipping, Lacquistry Etsy store.

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!
