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 :)

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.
