Black with Tiny Red Glitter Accents

When I get stuck for inspiration, I always just glitter as a fall back.  Not really sure why, it's just always easy to do and sparkly so that works for me.  Also, with the Reddit Toronto monthly meetup being Saturday, I had to have sparkly nails to show the surprising number of RL people that read this blog.  It's interesting about the post I just did showing my full collection: if anyone reads this blog, I'll know as they don't seem to be able to not comment on how many polishes I have....

Anyway, on to the nails.  Following my usual steps, I started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  Then, one finger at a time, I added a third coat and used a toothpick to apply the tiny red glitter pieces.  I really like using the smaller glitter like this as from a distance you can't even see it, just the red flashes it makes in the light.  As it's all lined up flat, you get a very sparkly, uniform finish.  As it isn't full coverage, it only takes about 10-15 minutes to do, too.  







The Verdict: I've done this enough, you know how much I love glitter :D

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

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on
