Review: OPI Last Friday Night from the Katy Perry Collection

I'm a little late getting on the Katy Perry OPI collection bandwagon.  I've only been into serious collection for a couple of months now and so missed out on a lot of great collections.  I've been making it my mission to catch up recently though, mostly through reasonable ebay auctions.  Today was a good shipment, with a package containing OPI Not Like the Movies and the beautiful Last Friday Night.  I'll be looking at the later first as it's so pretty I had to try it.

OPI Last Friday Night is a sheer blue polish, filled with small and medium opalescent glitter.  It kinda reminds me of a blue version of China Glaze Snow Globe.  Being so pretty in the bottle, I was torn with what to pair it with.  It would look great over black but I had to try to match the blue.  Turns out Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Pacific Blue is the perfect match for the bright blue!  Last Friday Night is very sheer on it's own, I'm glad I used it over another colour.  Application was decent although it did take three coats to get to this level of glitter. 








The Verdict: I LOVE this glitter.  Such a pretty, bold blue with so much opalescent glitter packed in there, it's just beautiful.  I'm especially happy with it as it will do for a substitute for the China Glaze Snow Globe I broke all over the floor >.<

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

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.

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!
