Review: Lacquistry Lake Placid on Acid

Man, I don't think I've ever actually reviewed a full collection of polishes I've received in a haul before, this must mean I got quite the good haul! I'm still sad that Across the Universe - a polish I'd been coveting for ages - arrived on the same as my Lacquistry order.  The Deborah Lippmann is in the same vein as this latest polish, featuring green and blue glitters in a blue base but I have to say, it just isn't that impressive compared to something like Lake Placid on Acid.

First up with a glitter is finding the right base colour.  For the review today I started with a coat of one of my favourite teals, American Apparel Malibu Green.  I have to say, the AA polishes are some of my absolute favourites as the application is just so good.  One coat of this is perfect under this glitter.  Next up, two coats of the star of the show, Lake Placid on Acid.  LPOA is a polish with a collection of green and blue glitters in large and small sizes in a tinted base.  Just like all the other Lacquistry glitters (see here for some other reviews) application was straightforward.  I've also noticed that you can do two thick coats with these and it will still try in a reasonable amount of time.  



I just can't get over how much I love the giant pieces of glitter.  All the other glitters I've tried lately have just been unexciting.  I love how this looks like lily pads on a pond.






The Verdict:  I've said it before in my other reviews and this one is no different.  Lacquistry glitters are always interesting, easy to work with and so sparkly and different.  I keep getting distracted when talking to people as my nails catch my eye.

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....

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!
