Review: China Glaze Sun-Kissed

I don't normally talk about other blog posts of mine but holy crapballs guys, yesterday was my highest traffic day EVER with this little number.  I thought it was pretty good but just *booom* mind blown.  So thank you!  And since there was glitter yesterday, the only logical thing is to do more glitter today!

When they were released, I wasn't especially interested in the China Glaze Summer Neon collection.  I mean, I already have a LOT of neons so I didn't think to look.  Turns out, there are some amazing polishes in there, including the neon yellow pearly polish, Sun-kissed.  Application was really good with this one, only needing two coats and not being all streaky about it either.  When it was day, I used my stickiest top coat and my usual technique to add the glitter.  I worked in columns, alternating between holo blue and holo fushcia glitter.  What I wasn't expecting was for them to look like comic book shading when I was done!








The Verdict:  I love sparklies and neons and the fact that this came out with a cool shaded effect when I was done, that's just a bonus.  Yay, glitter for everyone!

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....
