True Ruby Slipper Nails

I came thiiiiiiis close to being a normal person today.  I was so close to just applying a beautiful, strong red and saying "yes, this is sufficient, I am finished now".  NOPE, GLITTER EVERYWHEREREREREREREEEERRRR.

I've had Rimmel Stiletto in my drawer for a while now and oh how I pined for it when I had those horrible stains on my nails.  USE BASE COAT EVERY SINGLE TIME LADIES.  Even with a white base coat, the polish is just a jelly it just never looked right.  Now I'm being a proper person and don't have stains on my nails, I can use this gorgeous red jelly without issue!  Three coats is best with this one, just to make sure the finish is perfect.  Once done, I couldn't resist adding a little matching glitter.  I've had this red holo glitter for a while now and have been trying to find a way to use it, as it's tricky when it's so small.  Turns out, with a matching red base, glitter dots are perfect.  You don't really notice them until the light hits, and THEN you notice them. 







The Verdict: Gotta try more of this - matching the glitter to the polish but letting the polish show through more.  Yay sparkly!

The Polish:

  • Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro, Stiletto, drug stores.

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

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....
