Review: I Only Shop Vintage Swatches - Sephora by OPI

As a side quest to track down and obtain every type of sparkly there is out there, I'm also always on the look out for a polish that's different.  I don't care what the colour is, it's texture, nothing as long as it isn't something that's available in some variation from every brand.  Stopping by Sephora last weekend, I found a polish that certainly fits the "different" criteria - Sephora by OPI I Only Shop Vintage.

I Only Shop Vintage is a really pretty "vintage" gold shimmer.  A dusty gold, I actually think the name is a perfect fit as I can really see this colour perfectly in a bag or pair of shoes in a thrift shop.  Application was decent, the pictures you see here are three coats.  I also wanted to try something a little different this one.  I've had a few failure tonight and I couldn't leave you on just a standard colour swatch.  After I added the three coats, I added a coat of Seche Vite, a coat of Joe Fresh Matte top coat and then Seche Vite on the tips, a la` Chloe's Nails.  I'm happy with the result, it's a nice sandy gold, certainly different to the colours I normally wear. 








The Verdict:  Looking at the bottle, I almost wish I'd left this shiny as there are a lot of shimmer particles in there that kinda get lose in a matte top coat.  That being said, I'll leave it, just to be different.  On a side note, I must give OPI and Sephora props as they've had some excellent collaborations lately, both with the different colours like (212) Sephora and the mega sparkly glitters.

I Only Shop Vintage is from the new Spring collection at Sephora, $11.50 each.

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.
