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.

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....

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!

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
