Review: Nicole by OPI Look at Me, Look at Me

Woo, new Nicole by OPI polishes!  Happening past Shoppers the other day, I was super excited to see new polishes!  They must have just put them out as they were release just a few days ago and happen to be Shoppers Drug Mart exclusives.  I was only really drawn to a silver/rainbow glitter called Look at Me, Look at Me.  From further away it could pass for just a silver foil/micro glitter but close up it has so many other colours.

First up, let's look at the application.  I'm actually wearing two coats of China Glaze Grape Pop under this polish but I'm not going to talk about that one as you can't even see it!  This is two coats and as you can see it's completely opaque in those coats.  Application was good, actually, with no dragging or bald spots.  It also dries nice and smooth which I love - I hate a rough texture.  




See all the other colours now?  On close up you can see that silver isn't even the main colour!  It's full of light blue glitters, along with reds and pinks.  I love polishes that change depending on how closely you look.





The Verdict:  I like this polish.  As it kinda just looks like a silver foil from far away, it loses a couple points but otherwise is nice and easy to work with.  I apologise though for reviewing a Shoppers exclusive!  If there's any interest, I might pick up a few that I might put on ebay with the "Buy it Now" option as I hate auctions :)

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!

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?
