Sunset Gradient Nails with Gold Holo Circle Glitter!

Of course my obsession with my new circle glitter is going to continue.  Especially when faced with a whole day at Canada's Wonderland, I'm going to need something sparkly to look at while I'm waiting for the rides.  By the way, if you ever get the chance, go to Wonderland and go on either Leviathan or Behemoth because they are so amazing I don't even have words.  So high, so fast, so smooth, it's totally amazing.  Oh, and since I've been asked three times in two days, I'm now on Instagram on top of everything else.  You can find me @polishallthenails   Back to nails!



Even though I should have been sleeping, I wanted to a bright neon gradient to go with my circle glitter.  To start, I applied two coats of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls then went to town with a makeup sponge and three stripes of Urban Outfitters Hottub, Tiny Shorts and Ringo.  Three coats seemed to do the trick.  Once done, I applied my gold circle glitter using my usual technique - one column down the middle then building out either side.  With these bigger pieces of glitter, make sure your top coat is laid on reasonably thick.  This will let you sink the glitter into it and will stop it catching.  Make sure you two coats of Seche Vite - remembering to go to the edges and to wrap your tips - and you should get a good amount of wear. 





The Verdict: Of course I love this.  It has the neon colours, holo and circles that pleases me.  It's so bright it actually looks good in the shade - the colours almost seem to glow.  My kingdom for a blacklight. Sparkly!

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!
