Review: Sparkly Hearts with China Glaze Son of a Peach and Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It

I've talked about this before but I'm still finding it really hard to come up with innovative ways to show you all the indie polishes I can't seem to stop buying.  Sure, I could just pick a contrasting base colour and just go nuts but I feel like a ton of people already do that, and do it better.  When I realised my shape cuttery things worked with painter's tape (I didn't have any luck with regular tape - it gets stuck in the thing) I though I'd find a nice sparkly glitter polish, and get sparkling hearts. 

China Glaze has some great new neons out for summer and of course I bought a bunch.  A stand-out was Son of a Peach, a really great peach creme, funnily enough.  Once the three coats and the Seche Vite was properly dry, I cut out my hearts, pressed the tape to my hand to make sure it wouldn't pull up the base colour, then laid on Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It, a mix of pink and blue micro holo glitter.  Not much more to say about this really, other than the glitter was a nice consistency is super sparkly. 







The Verdict:  I ruin myself with hand-placed glitter manis.  It's hard to get too worked up about something like this when I could be sparklier, could be neater.  Sparkly, though?

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.
