Review: Revlon Stormy with Glitter Patterns

I'm not the most mature person in the world.  I have the sense of humour of a six year old and get jealous and one-uppy easily.  It's ok, I'm ok with it.  What it means though is that when I see a post like this on Reddit, I'm immediately consumed with the need to match it.  Don't know why, that's just what my brain thinks will be fun.  Brain, one day we'll learn.  Does mean I have sparkly nails though.

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Stormy, a grey-beige cream.  I kinda like these kinds of colours, given me a break from neons and makes me feel a bit more like an adult.  You know, until I cover it in glitter.  Then, using my small silver holo glitter and my usual technique, I created my different glitter patterns.  I think my favourites here are either my index finger or my ring, both are new for me and quite interesting.  





The Verdict: Yay, glitter for everyone and everyone should all the glitter all the time!

  1. What sort of top coat do you use? It's so bubbly!

  2. I see on the close up of your middle finger that there are a few overlapping pieces of glitter. I was just curious if they stuck together before you placed them, or if you placed one, couldn't move it and laid another on top of it for better positioning. I only wonder because I just found some glitter and was going to try hand placing it, but it was soooo static-y that I wasn't having much fun after having to take care to isolate each glitter before working.

  3. This is so pretty! I wish I had the patience to do something as gorgeous as this!

  4. This is really unique. I bet it was very zen-like placing the glitter. My favorite pattern is actually your thumb.

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!
