Review: Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos

It's been a few days, time for another Nerd Lacquer review! This particular polish has been a lemming of mine for a while now.  Every time a store would get more stock, I'd just miss out.  NOT THIS TIME. Finally, in my last shipment from the Nerd Lacquer Etsy store, Warrior Ethos!

Warrior Ethos is a blood red jelly packed full of all different kinds of glitter - red, black, large, small, you name it, it's in here.  Like most of the Nerd Lacquers I've tried recently, application was really good.  The pictures below are three coats but you get almost total opacity in two. Upending the bottle helps to evenly distribute the glitter but I didn't have to do much to get it to spread out.  Once applied, it gets that wonderful layered, deep look that only Nerd Lacquers seem to be able to create.  As the base is semi-sheer you can see all the layers of glitter - it's great.








The Verdict:  As always, Nerd Lacquer Warrior Ethos doesn't disappoint.  Already today I've had someone compliment my nails in the elevator and it's only lunchtime!  I love a good red polish as it is but combined with massive amounts of glitter and being opaque makes it a winner in my books.

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

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
