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.

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....

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!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
