Review: Black Cat Lacquer Love Games and Revlon Strawberry Cream

Oh it makes me so happy to have the nail mail flowing again.  My bf doesn't approve, of course, but my blog must be fed!  My latest delivery was from a new Etsy seller to me, Black Cat Lacquer.  Let's take a look at the girliest polish from the three I received, Love Games. 

Love Games is a gorgeous pink glitter polish comprising light and dark pink matte glitter hexes, light pink matte glitter hearts and silver holo glitter (!!).  I love the combination, I don't have anything like it in my collection.  Matte glitter AND holo glitter?? YESSS.  Application was really good for this too.  I didn't have to fish much for the hearts - what you see here is one coat.  The base colour here is interesting too - Revlon Strawberry Cream.  It's a scented polish and despite having done this last night, topping it with glitter polish and Seche Vite and showering, I can still smell strawberries.  It's a little weird, if you ask me.  Love the colour though.   Final odd point?  Despite the Seche Vite, this came out looking matte.  No idea why.  So girly :D








The Verdict:  I accidentally matched a cardigan to these nails, I feel too girly now :O.  You'd think it would happen more often but my nails rarely match my clothes, that's not really my bag.  Love the polish though.

The Polishes:

  • Black Cat Lacquer Love Games, $10, Etsy
  • Revlon Strawberry Cream, various locations.

  1. I need heart glitterrrr >_< My friend inadvertently matches her clothes to her nail polish (that she borrows from me) all the time. She doesn't even see it before she dresses and somehow ends up spot on. It's hilarious =P

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.
