My Family Crest - Not My Best Work

So I'm always on the hunt for new ideas.  Given my bf is surprisingly supportive of this blog, he actually set me a decent challenge: make my family crest.  My family crest is actually kinda interesting, have a look at the bottom of the post.  It looks weird being the first image. 

Looking at the heart of the crest, it looked pretty simple: royal blue background, wavy white lines then a yellow chevron over the top.  Using Revlon Royal, Rimmel French White Tip Pro and Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow, I set to work.  Unfortunately, it just wasn't....good.  From a distance they look like flip flops and it's just not up to my normal standard.  Running out of time tonight, I feel it is my duty to share all my efforts with you, success or not.  Also, I'm sooo happy my original desk lamp died, the one I've been using for the past 10 days (this is about three weeks old) is so much better.  






The Verdict: So there you have it folks, not some of my best work but challenge fulfilled!  I wish I could go back in time and fix my white balance here but alas, whatcha gunna do.  Was worth a shot :)

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!

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.
