Review: Lacquistry A Friggin' Circus

 Lately I've gone just a smidge overboard with the Lacquistry polishes.  They're just so different and so sparkly, I can't help myself.  One of my favourite types of glitters are those that just have large pieces, none of this trying-to-break-it-up-with-micro-glitter nonsense.  So when I saw A Friggin' Circus on Lacquistry's Etsy store, I just had to get it.

On to the application.  Application is always tricky with large pieces of glitter but this was pretty decent.  The pictures that follow are two coats over Rimmel Black Satin (my go-to black polish, by the way) and I've got some decent coverage happening.  To finish off, I added the usual coat of Seche Vite.  Omg, this was so sparkly on.  Take a look at the last picture in the group, just look at all the points of light happening!





Dammit, I love this polish.  If I had more patience, I'd spread the pieces out more but it still looks awesome. So many colours and I just love the lack of micro glitter.



The Verdict: Seriously, look at that last picture, how much more sparkly could you get?  This was a great polish, no chips or wear and just a dazzling array of hexagons that kept distracting me from conversation.  Keep up the excellent work, Lacquistry!

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

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?

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!
