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.

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!

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.
