Review: Tokidoki Latte

Another new brand for me today!  I find it really hard to leave Sephora without a new polish (wow, that's a broken sentence, but whatcha gunna do) so let's take a look at one of the new TokiDoki polishes from the Confetti Collection, Latte.   Cos you know, my lattes are always blue and pink....

First up, let me inwardly kick myself for not using a base colour with this polish.  It's just crying out for a strong, sparkly base, something like Orly Sweet Peacock or just a purple or black, or pink, or something.  That aside, the polish itself is super interesting with a mix of blue micro glitter and pink and holo bar glitter.  I do hate bar glitter generally as there's always bits hanging off the ends of my nails but these bars are smaller and ok.  Application was good - this is three coats, normal for a glitter - but looking a the pictures,  I can see holes in the glitter and it bugs me.  Oh well, live and learn. 








The Verdict: Great glitter, not like anything else in my collection which is getting harder and harder to find. This is so sparkly in the light, I actually caught someone staring at me in a meeting this morning cos I was just twinkling my nails back and forth :D

Where to Buy: $10 at Sephora, Yorkdale Mall, Toronto.

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

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
