Ever Wondered What Happens if You Layer ALLLLLL the Flakies?

The other day I had quite a lot of fun reviewing five different flakie polishes from Ludurana.  While fun, I felt there could just be MORE.  The polishes tend on the sparse side and it just was too subtle for me.  Why not, then, COMBINE ALLLLLLLLLLL THE FLAKIES!!

What you'll see below is quite the stack of polishes.  First up, two coats of my favourite black, Rimmel Black Satin.  I think I might do a review soon of my favourite blacks, whites, reds and top coats, might be interesting.  Anyway, to start off I added one coat of Essie Shine of the Times.  Next, a coat of Finger Paints Flecked, the blue-green flakie.  Next, I added two caots of the yellow-blue Ludurana Chuva.  I wasn't totally happy so I added coats of Sol and Vento!

And here you have it, quite possibly my busiest nails ever! You're going to want to see the close ups on this.









I love how many different colours you see here.  UNICOOORRN BARF


The Verdict:  What else is there to say other than I <3 flakies! These look completely different depending on the light.  In my bathroom they look all orange-green, under my desk lamp it's all blue-yellow, it's awesome. Comparing them though, Shine of the Times and Flecked are betting in terms of coverage but the Ludurana still have lots of different colours and you can actually buy them...

  3. We have the same favorite black polish! Also "Unicorn Barf" is spot on! This is a GORGEOUS mani! I'm so jealous. I only have SH Hidden Treasure (which I love) but I wish I had something with blue flakies, and maybe something with purple or red.

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?
