Mirror-ball Nails!

Lately I've been trying to get a bit more creative with my nails.  I've visited arts and crafts stores and dollar stores, hoping to find something I could stick on my nails.  I was in luck at a very shady dollar store yesterday and found a "Nail and Sparkly Art Decoration Kit" for the bank-busting price of $1.99.  Sold!  Inside was this tiny bottle of rhombus-shaped silver glitter and I just HAD to try them out.

Before we talk about the glitter in detail, let's look this lovely kelly green, Revlon Posh.  A new colour from Revlon, it's a really pretty and applies really well.  What you see in the pictures below is two coats.  

Once Posh was applied but still tacky, I took an orange stick, spread the glitter out on on piece of card and set to work.  As the polish was still a little wet, it was easy to stick them down.  Working left to right, I lined up the glitter so it would create a checker-board pattern.  Time consuming, but worth it!

Now, here's where I made a mistake.  I've had a bottle of a top coat other than Seche Vite sitting on my desk for a while now and I figured, why not give it a shot!  LOOK AT ALL THE STUPID BUBBLES IT LEFT ON MY MIRROR-BALLS! Never using that one again. 






I want to punch those bubbles so hard.



The Verdict:  Love Revlon Posh, it's a perfect shade of sophisticated green.  Also love differently-shaped glitter, who doesn't like mirror balls?

  5. Seche Vite is meant to be used on tacky polish, if the polish is too dry it can cause bubbles. Give it another chance :)

    1. It was the new top coat that caused the bubbles, not the Seche Vite

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
