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 >.<

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?
