Review: Nerd Lacquer - Entirely Unlike Tea

Alrighty ladies, time for another Nerd Lacquer review!  I've continually been lucky with Nerd Lacquers, I always seem to be able to catch the shop when it's open.  It does help though that I stalk Etsy pages religiously.... Anyway, let's take a look at one of the more understated colours, Entirely Unlike Tea. 

Entirely Unlike Tea is a really pretty light beige with a surprisingly strong pink flash running though it, complimented by just a whole bunch of silver glitter.  Application of this wasn't quite as good as some of the others, I needed  four coats here to get opacity.  Doesn't really help I was a bit tipsy when doing this, please ignore the various wangings on the polish surface.  Once on, it's a really pretty, delicate shade, quite unlike the neons and blues I normally head to.  I like it. 







The Verdict:  If you're in to more understated polishes, you'll love this one.  Just wear a coloured base coat, four coats is something of a pain :)

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

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.

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!
