Review: Orly Passion Fruit with Gold Glitter Strips

As you might have noticed, I'm running a giveaway at the moment to win Revlon Whimsical, Nerd Lacquer and a couple others.  IF YOU HADN'T, CONSIDER THIS ME RAMMING IT IN YOUR FAACCEEE.  Anyway, I need new ideas and one of the ways to enter is to give me yours, mwhahahahaha.  Common themes thus far have been more mermaid/mosaic/sequin nails and neon.  DONE AND DONE.  On my trip to Buffalo yesterday I picked up the ear-burningly bright Orly Passion Fruit which just happens to help me fill these two criteria.

Orly Passion Fruit, like a lot of the Orly neons, isn't the easiest to work with as it's very sheer.  I do have visions of using it for a glitter sandwich though, really gotta try that soon.  Anyway, to start this off I added two coats of my new favourite neutral, Orly Pure Porcelain.  It's a really pretty nude that covers great and it'll be featured in a post either tomorrow or the day after, if you're interested.  Over the top of that, I added one coat of Passion Fruit then went to work following these steps for the gold glitter stripes.  







The Verdict: I've loved this gold glitter since I used it in my gold and coral mani from last week.  It's just so spangly, I had to use it more and I'm really glad I did.  Orly Passion Fruit is a great colour although I wish application was easier.  Can't have everything I guess.  SPAARRRKKKLYYYYYYYYYY.

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!

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....
