Review: Nail-Venturous Orange You Unique - Yep.

I was really lucky, about two weeks ago I able to get an excellent selection of polishes from Ninja Polish. Sticks 'n' Stones, two Nail-venturous polishes, an A-England and a Jessica.  The one that really stood out for me for being, well, unique was Nail-Venturous Orange You Unique.  I don't think I've ever even seen anything close to this, which makes me really happy cos who needs another red or coral colour.  That doesn't mean I won't buy them if I see one I like so the point is moot but WHATEVERRRRR.

Orange You Unique is a collection of small yellow, white and blue flat glitter in a slightly orange tinted base.  Hot damn is it interesting on.  It almost looks like a colour version of TV static.  I've had this on all day today and I keep staring at it cos I can't quite work out how I feel about it.  Nope, decided, love it cos it's different and that's good with me. 








 The Verdict: I HAVE to find more Nail-Venturous polishes now.  I have Voodoo Doll here to test but being black and white glitter, I want some time to pass between it and Sticks 'n' Stones.  This is so different to everything else out there, try to get it if you can.  I managed to get one more in the 30 seconds her Etsy store was open, looks like imma be stalking that one for a while :)

  2. I love these! I bought Floam and Voodoo Doll from Ninja Polish but unfortunately missed out on her sale last night. I need these in my life, especially since they're all Louisiana themed. Hehe.

  3. They look like ice cream sprinkles (Hundreds and Thousands for those from the UK.) I love it :D Something I'd struggle to pull off but they're pretty!

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!

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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?
