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?

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

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!
