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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
