Lacquistry and Deborah Lippman Haul

I love Mondays for the simple fact that parcels tend to filter through the postal system over the weekends and land all together at my door.  I got a super special couple of parcels today, one containing five Lacquistry polishes and one my ultimate lemming, Deborah Lippman Across the Universe.  And let me say right up, I was not expecting Across the Universe to not be the best polish I got in the mail!


First up, here's the full set I got today.  Keep reading for further description and MEGA CLOSE-UPS.



These polishes, funnily enough, are very clearly named!  On the left is Winter No. 1 and on the right, Golf Socks.  Winter is a predominated blue glitter with soooo many different sizes and shapes it's difficult to keep track.  The big pieces are absolutely huge!  My next post will talk about this one more, check back. 

Lacquistry Winter No.1 

Lacquistry Golf Socks!  I love this one, such a good colour combo. 

Next up, Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus and Lake Placid on Acid.  Circus is the one that really stood out for me, I love a large glitter without the micro glitter mixed in.

Finally, Across the Universe is mine!  I'm sad though as it's thoroughly outshined by the over the top glitters!  Also pictured here is Shredded, a shredded black glitter.  I'm excited to try this one!

Deborah Lippman, Across the Universe.  Pretend you didn't just see the others and look how pretty!

Shredded, close up.  This one's going to be interesting.

The Verdict:  I can't wait to try out all these different glitters.  I just wish Across the Universe had gotten here sooner! I've tried A Friggin' Circus and Winter No. 1, check back shortly for the full review.

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....
