Review: Lacquistry Golf Socks

I received a lovely parcel in the mail on Monday from Etsy store Lacquistry.  Even since, I've just had to try all the glitters as I've just never seen such large pieces of glitter in such interesting colour combinations.  I still haven't tried my biggest lemming, Deborah Lippman Across the Universe, as it just isn't glittery enough! 

Anyway, let's take a look at one of my personal favourites from Lacquistry, Golf Socks.  A dark blue jelly with blue and orangey-gold micro glitter and blue and gold HUGEMONGOUS glitter, Golf Socks is a real stunner.  I just love the colour combination and I can't recall the last time I saw something else like it.  The pictures that follow are one coat of one of my favourite Sally Hansen Navy Baby, followed by two coats of Golf Socks. 






Application for this one seemed a little easier than the other one I've tried, Winter No. 1. Maybe because this one doesn't have the bar glitter to get in the way, it just seemed easier to distribute the large pieces and the smaller glitters filled in the gaps.  Take a look at the mega close up, isn't it awesome?




The Verdict:  This is my favourite so far from Lacquistry.  It actually does remind me of socks!  The colour combo is wonderful and so sparkly, absolutely can't go wrong!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go. 

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....

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
