Taping Experiments with OPI My Private Jet and Ozotic 534

For most of today I've had a wonderfully sparkly blue mani using Lacquistry Winter No.1.  As I applied it far too thick I couldn't help picking it off this afternoon >.<.  Given that it's movie night tonight, I had to throw something on quickly so why not OPI My Private Jet?  I've had this one in my drawer for a while as I was mad at it for not being the crazy holo version.  I consider it forgiven as on it's own it is actually the most interesting colour.  Not really brown, not really olive, so very nearly a holo, it's just interesting! 

As I wasn't sleepy yet when I got home, I though I'd add the holo this polish so deserves with one of my favourites Ozotic 534.  You can see a full review of this beauty here, if you're interested. Anyway, I thought I'd experiment with a new taping technique.  Check the pictures first, see if you can tell what I did:






I love the effect this creates although now its on I'm 100% on the colour combo.  It's pretty rainbowy though so I'll let it off.  Anyway, I created this effect by cutting little triangles of tape and sticking on three per finger.  Paint over the top, peel off carefully and voilà!




The Verdict: Despite getting the non-holo version of My Private Jet, I'm still really happy with the colour, just because it's different! As you would expect from OPI, application was a breeze, this barely needed two coats.  I also love the tape effect although I think next time I'll choose a nice bright contrasting colour pair.

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!

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?

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
