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.

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!
