Review: AllThatGlitters Spotty Dottie Dark with OPI Simply Smashing

I tell you, it's really getting hard to keep up with all the indie polish these days.  Every time I go on twitter there's someone else selling beautiful, sparkly polish!  I'm really going to have to start rationing myself, I REALLY CANNOT BUY THEM ALL.  Anyway, I still have plenty filtering through the mail system so let's take a look at another polish from AllThatGlittersNails, this time Spotty Dottie Dark.

I'm a giant fan of black glitter, it's like the quickest way to get dots ever.  Thus I could not be expected to restrain myself from buying Spotty Dottie Dark as it's a great combination of large black hex and bar glitter, with nary a piece of micro glitter in sight.  I love a statement glitter that doesn't feel the need to fill in the polish with tiny glitter pieces.  Another good thing about this polish is that the pictures below are just one coat, which works for me.  Underneath the black, OPI Simply Smashing, a sparkly olive-lime foil.  This is three coats, it's a little sheer.  






The Verdict: Love Spotty Dottie, ok with Simply Smashing.  The OPI is pretty but it's nothing especially special and that we haven't all seen before.

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.
