Snow and Ice Glittery Mani Featuring Sephora Indi-go With the Flow

 I picked up this lovely indigo (ish) glitter at Sephora during my annual bonus mega haul and have been trying to come up with a way to put it to good use.  Looking through my stash, I thought it might go well with an interesting Sally Hansen Complete Manicure polish I picked up at the same time.  Together, they make a lovely icy, snowing mani, good with the snow we've been having recently.

Indi-go With the Flow is an indigo glitter in small and large pieces, in a clear base.  It almost looks silver on the nail which takes away a lot of the unique-ness.  On, it's really not that interesting.  In the bottle it looks like it could go all the way to actually being, well, indigo, but as you can see it just doesn't translate.




Underneath the glitter is Sally Hansen Complete Manicure in Lavender Cloud.  This one is actually interesting as it's soooo close to being white and yet can still be called lavender.   I just haven't seen anything like it before.  The coverage is nice although what you see here is three coats.  Pale colours always do need that extra coat.  I think I'll keep this one around to show off interesting glitters, as an alternative to hard white. 

Finally, for something different, I added a coat of Milani Jewel FX in silver.  I've written about that one here, if you want to know more about it.


SUPER MACRO MODE ENABLED!




The verdict: Meh to Indi-go With the Flow, yay to Lavender Cloud.  Indi-go is just like so many other glitters out there, hex glitters in multiple sizes, could pass for silver.  Lavender Cloud is really pretty and is a great alternative to white.  The brush is great too.

On a side note, I got a new lens for my camera!  You'll be seeing a lot more of the super macro shots so check back soon :D

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!

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.
