Review: China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada

I really need a better way to organise my polishes.  I have a Helmer but it's not really big enough to hold my full collection >.<.  As a result, I dig through my bag of polishes and often find surprises, like my neon green China Glaze Kiwi Cool-ada! Soooo neon greeeennnnn.

This polish is a little tricky to work with.  Neons are notorious for being streaky and draggy at the cuticles and this wasn't much of an exception.  By the third code the coverage was live-withable but not as good as the American Apparel Neons.  As I felt neon green wasn't striking enough, I then added glitter dots in pink, purple and blue, using my usual technique.  I love how this came out, truly visually assaulting, which is always a goal for me. 

By the way, what do you think of my new lighting system?







The Verdict:  I think I prefer a neon yellow or orange to green but it's nice to change it up once in a while.  I like the colour combo too.

The Polish:

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.
