Review: Revlon Dreamer with Circus Glitter Mosaic

We have on our hands, everyone, a manicure that looks great from a distance and took me a great deal of time, but make me want to cry when looking at the macro-lensed pictures.  Let's take a look at the result of most of No Country for Old Men. 

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Dreamer, a nice sky blue creme.  Coverage was good on this one, and the colour is pretty too.  Then, using my usual technique, I added all my glitter in.  The diamonds were the hardest to work with as you have to cut the ends off to make sure you get full coverage at the cuticles and tips, and you'll still get a piece or two that stick up.  Then, for the first time ever, my top coat smeared my glitter on the most intricate nails, as well as pooling in the cuticles.  If I'd just taken a bit more time, been a bit more careful :(







The Verdict:  This was a good idea but something about the base colour I used, coupled with the top coat issues just makes me said.  It is sparkly though and ok when I hold my hand at arms length and squint a bit!

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Dreamer, various locations

  1. WOW it looks great! I mean, I guess I see what you're talking about from up close, but the awesome glittery impact from far away is GREAT. If you don't mind me asking, where do you find your small hex glitters? I only seem to be able to find larger ones ):

  3. I -love- that pinky nail! I don't know why it jumps out at me so much more than the middle finger, since it's the same pattern, but it just does. Now I seriously need to get me some diamond glitter. ^_^ I haven't bothered getting any big glitter, even though I adore your patterned glitter manis, because I knew I didn't have the patience to do it...but for that diamond pattern, I think I will practice. ^_^ Awesome, as usual, milady.

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
