Summer's Day Clouds with Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect Air

Spring is nice.  Warmer weather, sunshine and more importantly, soooo many new polishes for me to try.  Going past Shoppers today I thought I'd better try something from the new Smooth and Perfect line from Sally Hansen.  I've liked a lot Sally Hansen's, especially the Complete Salon Manicure line so even though the colours weren't mind-blowing, I gritted my teeth and picked up a pretty sky blue, Air.

What I didn't notice about this one in the store was that it's bordering on a frost! The first coat of this was so super sheer and frosty, I was all ready to be sad.  The blue was so pretty in the bottle, I decided to persevere and it actually layers up really well.  The pictures below are three coats and you'll see it's opaque and most of the frost has disappeared, hooray!  Air being the perfect sky blue, I though I'd then add some clouds and man, I'm glad I did.  Using Rimmel French White Tip Liner as it has a nice thin brush, I just dotted on cloud like shapes.  Looks like a perfect summer's day.









The Verdict: Despite my initial reservations, Sally Hansen Smooth and Perfect in Air really is pretty smooth and perfect.  The blue is so light and pretty, it can stay.  I also really like the Rimmel french tip, it's going to continue to be my nail air white, especially since the white is so opaque. Yay clouds!

  1. I love the clouds :)

    I've been wondering about the Smooth & Perfect. I'm not a big fan of blue but now I gotta try Air.

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.
