Review: Nail Venturous Voodoo

Hello hello, am back from my lovely weekend away although, brace yourselves, my nails were not happy about spending three days in a lake.  Fortunately I had some backup posts, while they recover for a bit.  So I've had Nail-Venturous Voodoo sitting in my drawer for a while but have been struggling to know what to do with it.  I bought it along with a bunch of other black and white glitters and it just kept getting overlooked in favour of more layer-able, clear based polishes.  Screw it, thought I, one can certainly have black nails in the height of summer!

Given that Voodoo has quite a dark base, I decided to do nothing fancy and start with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin, my go-to black.  Next, two coats of Voodoo.  The polish itself it very dark and filled with black, white and grey glitter.  Quite the bold choice with the black glitter, as it's only likely to show up over the lighter glitter.  I like it though, for that very reason.  The consistency was decent, although you do need to leave this one upside-down for a while to make sure the glitter is distributed evenly.  









The Verdict:  Not the most weather-appropriate nails given how summery it is in Toronto right now, but yay night time snow nails!  Not the most versatile polish but it sure is purty.

The Polishes:

  • Rimmel Black Satin, drug stores
  • Nail Venturous Voodoo, $9, ninjapolish.com

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!
