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 :)

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....

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!

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.
