Birdie Sky Nails with Moyou Suki Stamping Plate!

Ok!  So for no apparent reason I haven't been posting much.  There is absolutely no reason other than it's been making me feel vaguely anxious, uninspired and prone to just avoiding posting.  I don't know why this is, after all time.  I have now decided that that is stupid and I'm just going to post every day for a bit.  No challenge timeframe, just for a while.  I have to do things other than glitter placements.  I think that's been part of it.  If it isn't a placement, it isn't as spectacular and then why should I post it?  Therefore I'm just going to post.  Cos who cares.  More nails!  So let's take a look at my first fuck-it nails, shall we?  They're really awesome. 

I had a lovely time yesterday hanging out with my friend Kristen, who I met through Instagram.  She is incredibly good at stamping so of course I'm to make the most of her and her amazing Moyou stamping plates.  I have a thing for birds so the Moyou Suki 08 Plate had to be the winner.  Can I just say, I love those plates just because designing a full plate pattern like that is just so impressive that I want to buy all of them immediately.  Birds need sky so I started off with two coats of Urban Outfitters Pixie and layered a gradient of it, China Glaze Electric Beat and Urban Outfitters Blue Velvet atop it.  Using Konad Black Special Polish, Kristen stamped me with birds and flowers.  I hate that my Seche Vite streaked but whatcha gunna do.  Still looks awesome. 






The Verdict:  Love my stamping, gradient and the fact that I'm posting this and it isn't glitter!  I'll be pumping out the simple stuff for a while but who knows, I might discovered another thing like glitter placement!  Thanks again Kristen!

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!
