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.

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:
