Zoya Indigo's Secret Micro Holo + Bonus Glitter

Here today we have a polish I've been meaning to swatch for a while: Zoya Indigo.  I grabbed this one as soon as I saw it as it has everything I like in a polish - blue, duochrome and with a smattering of tiny holo particles.  On the nail, however, it wasn't earth-shattering.  Sure, it's a really nice navy and sure, application was easy at two coats but the micro glitter was really lost on application.  Sure, you can see one or two tiny glints but it just doesn't match up to the bottle, which is disappointing.  If you're looking for a nice new navy though, you could do a lot worse.

    As I had a little time on my hands, I thought I'd see what this looked like with some real holo glitter on top.  I received American Apparel Light Year from a promotion a while back and thought I'd see how it looked with the Zoya.  Super sparkly on but there's something bothers me a little about this.  The application was good too - what you see below is one coat - but it's just a little meh.  

Oh well, I still <3 Indigo.

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....

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
