Review: Model's Own Golden Green with LA Girl Uninhibited

I've been looking at the Model's Own Beetlejuice line for a while now and am finally rounding out the collection.  As I can't seem to leave a mani alone, I tried out the fabulous black glitter LA Girl Uninhibited!

Golden Green is a duochrome switching between gold and green, funnily enough.  I wasn't super impressed with it actually.  It's really sheer going on so you need at least three coats going on.  It also seems to take a long time to try and is easy to mess up.  Finally, it really isn't much of a duochrome going on.  It's pretty much just all green, all the time.  


You can see all the foil particles here.  I do like macro mode!

Given I was not especially impressed with Golden Green on its own, I decided to add a glitter gradient using LA Girl Glitter Addict in Uninhibited.  I'm a lot happier with the colour now!  Uninhibited is one of the few black glitters out there and you can create some really interesting effects with it.  




The Verdict: Golden Green?  Meh.  I may not be the biggest fan of greens but I had high hopes for this one  and was disappointed.  Uninhibited though is great and I can see this looking really good with a range of colours.

Bonus Tutorial: Quick tip on how to apply a glitter gradient.

  1. Apply base colour
  2. Paint the glitter colour three quarters of the way down your nail in a thin coat.
  3. Repeat step two but stopping half way down your nail
  4. Add another thin coat a quarter of the way down.
  5. Finish with a top coat. 
  6. Done!

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....
