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

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. 

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....

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!
