Gold and Coral Mermaid Tips with Bonus Interloper

Every time I go to Shoppers (generic Canadian pharmacy, for those non-Canadians) I gotta do a lap of the beauty isle.  It's a bit of a problem, especially if there's a sale, like, say, $3.99 Revlons.  It's not as much of a problem though, if you use them, right? Right?? So this brings me to one of the Revlon polishes I bought recently, Make Mine Mango.  

Make Mine Mango is a decidedly un-mango creme, being more of an orangey coral than mango. Whatever.  Application was par for the course with Revlon, this is two coats.  As I have something of a glitter obsession, I decided to just do a Mermaid french tip.  I aimed to keep tessellating the hexagons and the effect was really interesting.  It almost looks pixelated and I like it. I should also mention, OMG SO SPARKLY.  The gold always contrasts nicely with coral and just flashes in the light, it's awesome.

So I was taking these photos and then I had something of an invasion.... 






CAT INVASION!!!
This is Rocket (short for Rocketface) who just wouldn't take no for an answer in not sitting on my desk.  It's her fault that there are constantly pieces of fluff in my photos!

If she's not going to move, I'm taking pictures on her, dammit!
HAHHHR MAHHH KIITTTEERRRRHHHHHH
The Verdict: Revlon Make Mine Mango is a perfectly fine coral but I bet you already have at least one like it.  Looks pretty with gold glitter but that's about it.  Taking photos on a cat?  AWESOME, if not hair-filled.

  2. I love the glitter tips, it's a great look. And what a cute kitty cat! I empathize with hair filled photos. I feel like every time I try to take nail pictures my dog manages to get his fur in my polish.

  6. Kitty!!! For me it's usually my parrot photo bombing. XD She's so pretty!

    I love the base color, even if it's not mango at all. The coral tone that comes out of it is really nice. And I, of course, love the glitter tips. :)

  7. Cat invasion!

    Coral + gold... I never would have paired those two. Good idea.

  8. This makes me think of a kind of tiled mosaic. Maybe use something like this for summer inspiration?

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.
