Beetlejuice Nails!

As you may have noticed, I have a hard time going more than a day or so without having to hit the glitter.  It's my favourite and while time-consuming, I find it really relaxing to do something so methodical.  I've already used this particular glitter before but I wasn't entirely happy with it last time so I thought I'd try to mix it up a bit.  Let's take at my Beetlejuice nails!

First up, a new white polish I picked up the other day.  Turns out LA Girl has a "salon" line that is pretty decent.  Delicate is a shimmery white polish that applies well for a white, only needing two coats.  Next, using my usual glitter technique, I added vertical stripes in my charocal grey square holo glitter.  Quite the mouthful really.  I was trying to decide between vertical and horizontal stripes and after seeing it on, I proooobably should have gone with horizontal but whatcha gunna do.  Beetlejuice! 







The Verdict: I like the Beetlejuice look but I didn't apply it that well and that always bugs me.  I do like my new white too.

The Polishes:

  • L.A Girl Professional Salon Lacquer in Delicate, L.A. Girl
  • Charcoal holo square glitter, ebay

  1. Love the manicure. It must have taken ages to place those glitters, but looks stunning.

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
