Haul: Four New Nerd Lacquer Polishes!

I love Mondays as odds are it's nail polish delivery day!  Super excited, got four new Nerd Lacquers in the mail!  I'll be swatching these tonight, check back soon for what these all look like on.  In the mean time, drink in (but omg, don't literally drink it like that horrible link that's been floating around the internet today) the close-up goodness.




First up, Nerd Lacquer Crunchy Frog.  This one has a brown, shimmery base with lots of different sized and shaped silver and green glitter. 


Next, Nerd Lacquer Lento III.  I love this one, you never see square glitter!  More of a green-brown base to this one with blue, black, gold and green glitter in hexes and squares of different sizes. 

Next, Nerd Lacquer Hyerspace Bypass.  Man, I love this one as I don't have anything like it in my collection.  A mustard yellow base with black, silver, gold and sparkly holo glitter, I can't wait to try this one out. 

Finally, Nerd Lacquer Outed by a Robot.  This one has the lightest blue base with blue and silver hex-shaped glitters in different sizes.  Also looks really pretty.
 The Verdict:  I can't wait to try these out, especially Hyperspace Bypass.

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
