CIRCULAR GLITTER EVERYBODY LOOK

Ahhhhhhhh I'm a bit excited because I just got a dozen sampler bags of glitter mixes in the mail and it's so sparkly and so many options I can't even words.  I had success ordering glitter off Etsy before so I thought I'd step it up, get more, because sparkly.  I ordered a ton of stuff from Borough Babe Supply mostly because I've been literally dying to play with circular glitter for a while now. Let's take a look, shall we?

It's surprisingly hard to find a strong colour complement to silver.  With gold it looks dynamite with pinks and purples.  There's just not the same pop with silver.  So I went with black for the base because it's the safe choice.  Ignore my thumb here, it was an experiment that didn't really work.  Look at how sparkly the circles are instead!  I used my usual technique here, stripe of top coat, line down the middle placed with a toothpick/orange stick, build out the sides then seal with Seche Vite.  The result was almost blindingly sparkly.  My favourite thing to do with this was to hold it really close to one eye and just stared at the bokeh rainbows.  Mmm sparklies.

The Verdict:  WHAT DID I TELL YOU, SPARKLLLLYYY YESSS SO GOOD.  And it's nice to have not hexes on my nails.  Or super tiny and annoying squares.  As you can see, the glitter itself is pretty good, nice and even pieces.  Which is all I ever want, really.

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....
