Review: Ninja Polish Alexandrite and Color Changing Garnet

This far into the blogging game, I'm getting pretty good at tempering my expectations.  I need an amazing polish in a store or on the internet, as much as I want do get all excited, I know that it's probably not going to be that good.  The shimmer, the duochrome, the glitter, none of it will show on the nail quite as well as it does in the bottle.  That's ok, I'm an adult and can handle it most of the time.  UNTIL SOMETHING ACTUALLY LIVES UP TO MY EXPECTATIONS AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS RUINED.  Seriously, look how amazing Ninja Polish Alexandrite and Color Changing Garnet are. 

For a start, just LOOK AT THESE.  They are glass-flecked, duochrome-glitter filled duochromes that actually change colour.  When was the last time you saw that?? Alexandrite goes from green-blue-purple while Color Changing Garnet goes green-gold-copper-red.  The colour shift is complete too, just look at the thumb below.  Anyway, the mani itself started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin, one coat of Seche Vite, tape, then two thin coats of both polishes.  FULL RAINBOW.  ALL CAPS.  YEAH.







The Verdict:  I love these polish so much.  Just buy them.  Don't think, go here.

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

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!
