Dammit Water Marbling, Why You Hate Me

So after the excitement of the China Glaze Prismatics, I had a little time to myself.  Continually taunted with one successful water marbling under my belt but several failures, I wanted to try out a rainbow marble again.  I gathered ten different colours from red to pink, fetched my room-temp water and got to work.

This is what I ended up with, after 45 minutes:






It's just OK.  I can see so many things wrong with it:
  - My cuticles wouldn't clean up
  - My tape was wrong and let polish in
  - Couldn't get the polish to spread so the reds (first) dried out and wouldn't play with the pink and purple in   the middle
  - Gap on my little finger
  - Same colours used on my index finger but doesn't match the others.

Siiiiiigh.  Just not my night for water marbling.  There are couple of cool combos in here though and I firmly believe in sharing all my polish experiences, good or bad.  I do like how blaringly neon this is, I WILL GET THIS TO WORK PROPERLY, MARK MY WORDS.

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

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

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.
