Review: Pretty n Polished Jawbreaker is as Advertised!

Some of you mind have seen the post I made the other night, showcasing all the lovely indie polishes I received this week.  I'm doing my best to work through them, even if it means posting while being a little drunk and listening to dubstep to keep me awake.  All for you, dammit!  Anyway, let's take a look at some pictures I took when I wasn't drunk, of the lovely Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker.  

I pick polishes to swatch based on how much I like them so it says something that I picked Jawbreaker first.  I've seen swatches of this one around the webs so was super psyched to try it myself.  Jawbreaker is a white creme polish packed with red, yellow, blue and green glitter and it really does look like a Jawbreaker on.  I love polishes with a ton of glitter and a non clear base, the layered look is so interesting.






The Verdict:  Exactly as advertised by the name and I love it.  A lot of the more popular indie polishes are hard to find right now but if you go to any given Etsy strore and set the notification email you should be able to get everything you want.  That's what I do anyway.  

SLEEP TIME ZZZZZ I wonder if I'll regret the amount of ~$2 stuff I just bought off ebay....hmm probably not.  I do need more striping tape, infinite stickers, more glitter, rhinestones and stuff I've already forgotten....:D

  2. Is that bar glitter in there? I'm kind of bummed. I fell in love with the bottle shot in your indie haul post, but I'm not a fan of bar glitter. I guess I'll have to buy a bottle and try it out for myself!

  3. I'm really mad at myself. I only got the mini size.

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?
