Review: Revlon Sweet Tart and Sally Hansen Ionic Indigo

Oh magnetic polishes.  Sure, you're a cool gimmick but you're just not that interesting once the polish has dried.  Your colours aren't particularly special (special to me either being sparkly or bright) and you're usually expensive too.  That being said, I have a few of them but like to mix up the application.  With my rolls of striping tape arriving in the mail last night, I couldn't resist combining the two.  I've done it before, but I love how it turns out so too bad!

First up, two coats of a new Revlon polish I picked up the other day, Sweet Tart.  It's a perfect pink bubblegum creme that happened to contrast nicely with Sally Hansen Magnetic Ionic Indigo.  Once the Seche Vite on top of Sweet Tart was dry, I added the striping tape in the sunburst pattern.  Looking at it, I should have either fully committed to the sunburst pattern or stuck with vertical stripes, but whatcha gunna do.   Next, on went the magnetic polish, using the magnet before the polish dried.  Off comes the tape (my favourite part) and viola!







The Verdict:  I think I preferred my first go at this particular mani but I still like the colour combo here.  I love the pink here.

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Sweet Tart
  • Sally Hansen Ionic Indigo

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

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
