Review: Lacquistry Faux Fir

Onwards to show you more indie polishes that I magically have and is now impossible to get, therefore leaving me wracked with guilt because I'm essentially just teasing you!  So I can hear what you're thinking, and no, I didn't just glue sparkly pine needles to my nails, this is just Lacquistry Faux Fir!

I'm not normally one for greens, for some reason, but I had to make an exception for Faux Fir.  Anything with such a large amount of glitter could be poo brown and I'd find a way to like it.  There's bar glitter, hex, micro, you name it, it's all there, in a strong forest green. Anyway, for this one I started with two coats of Revlon Posh with a coat of Rimmel Black Satin on my ring finger.  I was curious to see if using a different undercolour would make for a good accent nail and it's not bad.  Next, two coats of Faux Fir.  Application was decent - this much glitter is always a little thick - but I had no problems getting it out of the bottle which is always a plus.  As always, I used a coat of Seche Vite and drying drops to get this to set.







The Verdict: So green, so sparkly.  I sound really biased for so many of these indie polishes but I swear, they're all actually this good.  One day we'll be able to get them easily-er.

Where to Buy:  $8.75, Lacquistry on Etsy

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

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
