Review: Nerd Lacquer Event Horizon

I realised that when I got my previous two shipments of Nerd Lacquers, I never actually WORE them.  I swatched them and cos the glitter is a PITA to take off, I usually scraped it off before it dried out completely.  I now am bummed as I don't feel I can wear them now as you've already need them and I have million other polishes to try.  NOT THIS TIME, DAMMIT!  I am wearing these bastards so I'm afraid you might be seeing quite the few pictures of these in the next week or so.

I reviewed All of Time and Space the other day, now let's look at Event Horizon.  I'm not normally too into greens but this is so packed with glitter I couldn't resist.  Event Horizon on is the prettiest jelly I've seen in a long time.  When you add three layers like I did here, the silver, blue, green and holo glitter look like they're suspended in some fabulous pool.  It looks so deep you could practically dive in, it's awesome. 






 The Verdict:  I <3 Nerd Lacquers and I think that Event Horizon might just have taken the #1 spot for my favourite green.  It's so deep, sparkly and interesting, I love it.

    1. I spend a looooooooooooooooooooot of time on the webs. It started with Harlow and Co selling them and then I hunted down other places to buy them. That then led to me finding Lacquistry, Pretty and Polished, Dollish Polish (which I'm waiting for my first shipment of) and so on. They're usually different be with massive amounts of glitter or a unique colour so I try to hunt down as many as I can.

      I get sick of just having boring single colours so indie polishes are perfect for me :)

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
