A Few Manicures I've Done Recently

Over the past few weeks I've been experimenting with some different combination of colours, glitters and patterns.  All these were taken with my iPhone so please excuse the quality!  

Christmas party nails!  I loved how this one turned out, so Christmas-y.  This was using Rimmel "Stiletto Red" with Love & Beauty green glitter.

Found this one in the supermarket, no less.  Really hard to photograph but pretty green flakes.  Joe Fresh "Twilight" .

Loved this one, so sparkly.  This was using Sally Hansen Complete Manicure "Glity Pleasure" and Sephora by OPI "Only Gold for Me". 
Another great sparkly one that had terrible wear.  This was only after a day, you can see how much it was coming off at the tips.  Using Rimmel "615 Night Before" and Wet n Wild "Party of Five Glitters".

I've spent a long time looking at holographic polishes and decided to bite the bullet and try Nfu-Oh 61, a supposedly legendary holo.  I was really disappointed by it though, this was the only time I could see even a bit of a rainbow.  Also my first attempt at stamping.  Bit meh.

This was so sparkly!  As much as I nothing the Kardashians I couldn't help picking up the Nicole by OPI "Follow Me on Glitter".  As that wasn't colourful enough, I added Sephora by OPI "Spark-tacular!".

My first full nail attempt at stamping!  I tired to achieve this look but it didn't quite look as good!

This polish was absolutely amazing.  Easy to apply, opaque and looks like coloured glass in the sun.  Using Zoya "Valerie"


OPI "Rally Pretty Pink" with silver foil strips.  The duochrome in this is amazing, completely gold in some lights, completely pink in others.  
So that's it!  I'll be using better quality photos from now on but had to share some of my beginner attempts.

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

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.

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!
