Holographic Silver Polka Dots!

I do so very much enjoy a good mail package, as I've sighed over on multiple occasions.  Particularly excited was I when I received a new, surprisingly large pot of holo silver glitter in the mail from ebay.  It's quite a small glitter and I was so sorely tempted to do full Mermaid Nails with it but alas, alack, it is hard to fine the probable two hours that full coverage with glitter this small would take.  I had to use it, so time for glitter polka dots instead!

To start with, I added two coats of Revlon Midnight Affair, a lovely deep blue.  Application was really nice on this one, you could easily stay with two coats.  Then, following the steps here but spacing the glitter out more, I covered each of my nails with the holo silver glitter.  THIS IS SO SPARKLY I DON'T EVEN KNOW....THINGS....SPARKLYYYYYYYYY.  The elevator at work has lovely down lights and everyone looked at me funny today as I couldn't stop waving my hands around under the lights.  It seriously looks like I have LEDs on my nails, it's that spangly. 






Gratuitous blurred shot.  Imagine this but at least twice as sparkly.






















The Verdict: Revlon Midnight Affair is a really nice deep navy blue, if it's possible you don't have something like this already. The glitter on the other hand, OMG SO SPARKLY I AM ACTUALLY LEAVING IT ON FOR MORE THAN 24 HOURS WHICH NEVER EVER HAPPENS :D

  2. It's perfect! PERFECT!! Did it take you long positioning the glitter? I feel like that must have taken a whole lot of work!

  6. I LOVE THIS!!! I just recently tried hand placing glitter (thanks to you!) with smallish gold hexes over Revlon Vixen and was obsessed with it for like 4 days - a crazy long time for me to not change my nails! You are so good at this, though, my hand-placing wasn't nearly as neat as yours! How do you do it!?

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

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!

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....
