Review: Nerd Lacquer Nebula

You know the worse part about blogging about nail polish?  I like to do two reviews a day to make sure you lot have plenty to read but it means that every day, one polish only gets to be worn for about 20 minutes.  Also, once I've swatched a polish, I feel like it would be a waste to wear it again as it means there'd be one less thing to blog about.  I felt sure I'd be safe with Nebula cos surely it can't be as good as it looks in the bottle.  WRONG WRONG.  This polish is amazing and I'm an idiot for just swatching it.

Nebula is a beautiful, deep purple-red so full of glitter I don't even know where to start.  There has to be at least 10 different kinds in there.  Application was a breeze, this is two coats and the coverage is perfect.  It's another of those heavily pigmented jellies which I've recently come to love it as brings such interesting depth to the polish.  LOOK AT IT








The Verdict:  I love this so much, I don't even know what to say.  It's so glossy, so sparkly, I think I might actually wear it again *gasp*.

  1. I wanted this when Nerd Lacquer was open but I did't get it because I already bought 4 polishes but damn it now I regret not getting this. It's soooo beautiful. :(

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.
