Haul: THE FULL PRISMATIC COLLECTION!!

Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee has been the sound I've been making all night tonight as when I happened past my local beauty supply store they had just put out the new China Glaze Prismatic Collection!! After the bitter, bitter disappointment about the Finger Paints Special Effects, there was no way I could let this amazingly sparkly, duochromed collection pass me by!  

I'll be swatching these shortly but I just had to show you how pretty and complex they are in the flesh!




Left: Polarized and Right: Liquid Crystal

Left: Full Spectrum and Right: Ray-Diant

Left: Optical Illusion and Right: Prism

Optical Illusion: primarily green with alllll the glitter colours in there.  Medium duochrome. 

Prism: Mainly pink, again with all the coloured glitters.  Medium duochrome.

Ray-Diant: almost a gold colour with a total glitter rainbow.  No duochrome. 

Full Spectrum: also kinda pink but looks more different to Prism in person.  Strong duochrome, pink in the light and silver at the edges. 

Polarised: Silver with a glitter rainbow.  No duochrome. 

Liquid Crystal:  My favourite, complete duochrome rainbow with pink and blue coming forward, depending on the light.
The Verdict: Nothing much more to say other than EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE these are amazing! I haven't seen anything like it before, at least not tiny rainbow glitter in a duochrome base.  I can't wait to try these!

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!

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
