Review: Sephora by OPI If You've Got It, Haute It

After a holiday, the sensible blogger must not immediately raid all shops for polishes that come out in the preceding two weeks.  No, she must only get the select few, those that are truly worth showing.  Turns out that's hard and when I first got back I may have gone a bit silly with the polishes I bought.  Let's take a look at the (mercifully) single never Sephora polish I bought, If You've Got It, Haute It.  Yes, that is actually what is printed on the bottom of the bottle >.<
IYGIHI - even the acronym is ridiculous - is a charcoal grey polish backed to the glitter with black, charcoal and opalescent glitter.  It looked so sparkly in the bottle, I couldn't resist.  Application was not great with this one - the brush is huge and the polish a little thick, despite being a sealed bottle.  I was excited with the first coat as there was a ton of black glitter standing out but that was quickly overwhelmed.  The end result after three coats is reasonably interesting, looking like marble or sparkly river stone.  It's just not as interesting as it looked in the bottle. 






The Verdict: Meh.  With the amount of polishes Sephora has, choose something else cos this really isn't worth it.

  1. This is why I never buy polish over $5. I'm in constant fear of hating what comes out of the bottle =( (Also I'm poor...)

    1. !!! That being said, it still looks interesting! Layer it over black maybe? You might like it better.

  4. Looks like they were trying to imitate China Glaze's Some Like it Haute... I still like the CG polish better, even though their formula is pretty thick and clumpy. The CG polish is also slightly lighter in color.

  5. I'm kind of in love with this one, after trying it on yesterday at Sephora! I kind of want it now, if only I was allowed to be spending money right now :(

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

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!
