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 :)

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?
