Re-review: Nerd Lacquer Cold & Calculating

 Sometimes, if I don't feel like digging through the reusable shopping bag holding most of my polishes, I like to pick a polish I reviewed a long time ago, re-do it, and feel superior over myself from January this year.  Yeah, past-self-put-down five! Let's take a look at a polish I first reviewed all the way back on January 4th, Nerd Lacquer Cold & Calculating

Cold & Calculating is a purple franken polish with a frosted purple base and a smattering of pink and silver glitter.  As with a couple of other Nerd Lacquer polishes, I suspect this has been mixed with Kleancolors.  I've always had issue with Kleancolors taking ages to dry and this one was no exception.  Even with a Seche Vite top coat and drying drops, four nails have wrinkled, rage.  I'm not really sure why I reviewed this one again - it wasn't especially impressive back in January and still isn't...







The Verdict:  What a surprise, I'm better at painting my nails now than seven months ago!  Cold & Calculating still isn't very exciting, although I do feel special as you can't buy it any more which really makes this post all the more pointless, but whatcha gunna do!

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....

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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!
