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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!
