Review: Sation Diamond Diggin' Diva over a Nude Black French Tip

Well, editing this post is something of a challenge as I'm typing this on my ipad in New York! I'm here for ten days on holiday with my bf and we're having a great time. I managed to find the time to do my nails before we left so let's take a look at a mani I did, inspired by the always amazing  psshiiit.

To start, I applied a thick base coat, like usual and let it dry completely. Then, using binder reinforcement stickers (you know, the ones that look like donuts) I added the black French tips. I know people go on a lot about the stickers but they really are the right size to fit a French tip. Then, once the French tip was dry I added a glitter gradient in Sation Diamond Diggin' Diva. I found that if I wiped most of the polish off the brush first I could get just the sprinkling of glitter I wanted on the tips. This is the first time I've tried Safion and it's making a good impression with its silver and black glitter combo.







The Verdict: I'm not 100% sure I'm convinced about French tips on nude nails, especially when mine a a little abused from all the polish I apply.  That being said, I do like the glitter blending in a traditional French tip, so I thanks pshiiiit for the idea :)

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!

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.
