Ozotic Gradient with Hex Nail Jewelry Accents!

Guess what guys?  The ridiculous amount of Hex Nail Charms I ordered a while back arrived!  I've been seeing them all over the internet so of course I need them too.  I probably shouldn't have ordered ~25 of them but whatcha gunna do.  I needed something awesome to pair them with so why not a gradient with Ozotic holo polishes?  Unicorns need rainbows, it's the law. 

To start, I applied the usual two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  Once dry, I painted two thick stripes of Ozotic 531 (orangey) and 534 (purpley) on a makeup sponge and daubed it on my nails.  I only did two coats of the gradient as I really like the scattered rainbow effect you get when you really lightly apply a holo polish.  Once dry, I placed a drop of nail glue on my nail, attempted to stick the charm on, peeled it off my fingers/tweezers and finally got it stuck to my nail.  I've used top coat, cheap nail glue and proper 3 second nail glue and trust me, if you're going to invest a dollar or so for each charm, get the proper nail glue.  Even though my ring finger is a bit too curved for the unicorn and the horn sticks up a little, it still lasted all day.  That's less likely to happen with other methods. 






The Verdict: LOVE the charms, love the Ozotic polishes and my sparkly shoes, of course.  These charms are just such a nice way to accent a nail without having to do anything complicated.  And if you can get some rainbows in there too, of course that's going to make it even awesomer.  Sparklies!

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....
