Review: The Hungry Asian Cookies & Cream

Oh, white polish.  You're interesting, but only for your unattainability.  The number of times I've thought, yes, smooth white nails would be nice now, only have it ruined by it being streaky or needing a million coats that inevitably get dinged.  It was, then, with trepidation that I tried The Hungry Asian, Cookies and Cream. 

Cookies and Cream is a white jelly polish with a very sparse smattering of black glitter.  This is clearly intentional, to represent the cookie pieces.  What surprised me here was how well it applied.  Being a jelly meant that not only was it not streaky, there's a nice build-up of layers of glitter.  I only needed three coats for even coverage.  Even the glitter spread itself out properly. 






The Verdict:  If you're looking for your nails to look exactly like Cookies and Cream ice cream, mission accomplished, in the best way possible.

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!
