Review: Lacquistry Happiness is a Warm Gun, So Sparkly

I've done a lot of experimenting tonight, both with an abstract version of my family quest which was a challenge set by my bf and with gold foil.  The gold foil is hardly practical in the longer term so I then did what I do every night (when I can't think of anyting else), Pinky, use a Lacquistry polish!  The lucky contestant tonight is Happiness is a Warm Gun, a most interesting silver glitter.

Happiness is a Warm Gun is a charcoal grey glitter - with a difference.  It's hard to pin down in words but if you look at the close ups you'll see that there are all these duochrome particles in there that can make the polish look blue or pink, depending on the light.  Reminds me a lot of the type of glitter in the China Glaze Prismatic collection.  Super pretty, interesting to look at and, of course, very sparkly. Application for this polish was good and normal for indie polishes.  There's a metric crap ton (official measurement) of glitter in here so you can build up opacity in two coats but you may have to push the glitter around to ensure it's distributed as best as possible. 





See what I mean about the blues and pinks?  I dare you to describe this though, it's hard :(


The Verdict: I love all Lacquistry polishes, especially for the level of innovation you see in them.  Happiness is a Warm Gun is no exception.  I prefer an opaque glitter if I can get it and this don't disappoint, either with the coverage, application or sparkle.  Yay glitter!

  2. Lacquistry is away for vacation at the moment :( I really want to get the shredded black you featured a few days/weeks ago (sorry, can't actually remember the date, I have been stalking your blog!)
    These look fantastic though, there aren't words to describe how multidimensional it is :D

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.
