Tried to Make Daisies in the Grass - Good Idea, Meh Execution

As posted earlier this evening, I got another exciting parcel in the mail tonight!  The 25pc stamp set from Bundle Monster and the 5 American Apparel polishes I ordered before xmas.  Given that I picked up a nice neon green tonight as well, I thought I'd give a Daisies-in-the-Grass stamped mani.  I'm reasonably happy with the result,  I just struggled with the application.  The tiny bottle of white polish that came with my stamper has gone all gluggy and none of my other whites seemed to be thick enough to pull off a strong stamp.  My little finger was the best but the others were meh.  I tried to fix it with a dotting tool but again, not the best.  The green Cosmetic Arts polish I picked up a Winners today was also not the greatest.  Three coats and still a bit spotty in places.  

Oh well, will just have to keep trying!  Check back soon, I did an AMAZING mani after this one :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.
