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!

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!
