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.

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.
