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?

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!  

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....
