Review: FEVERLacquer Dirty Dancing in the Moonlight

I blog a lot.  Like, a LOT.  It happens that I actually do my nails twice a night: once, something experimental, like fancy nails or giraffes and then again with something a little more work-friendly.  I like to try indie polishes for the most part, as they tend to be interesting to look at and give me something different.  Last night, however, there were just....issues.  Let's take a look at Fever Lacquer Dirty Dancing in the Moonlight.

I was really interested in this polish cos look at it, it's a flakie for crying out loud!  It also seemed to avoid the whole red-orange-green spectrum too which I was excited about, I have those covered.  I have to say though, my first impression of this polish was a bit off: it came wrapped in two diapers.  I want nothing to do with children so this put me off right from the start.  It also ate the label, to the point where I can't really read it.  Then, when I decided to try it, it was just really sparse and a bit thick.  This is two coats and the coverage isn't great.  Also, even with a coat of Seche Vite and drying drops, I still had sheet marks in the morning.  

Anyway, I'm going to stop being negative now as the flakes themselves are soo pretty.  Look at the pinks, blues and purples in there.  

The Verdict:  My application isn't good here, sorry guys.  The polish is interesting although I might need to work on my application more to get more flakes.


  1. It reminds me of China Glaze Luxe and Lush from the Hunger Games collection, only this is way more sparse than it. If you like this one, you should give Luxe and Lush a try. :>

  2. It was honestly wrapped in diapers? I just threw up in my mouth a little.

    1. It honestly was. This was from a proper Etsy store and everything. It tooooottally put me off *shudder*

  3. In DIAPERS? What the hell?! Packaging material has GOT to be cheaper than diapers. I don't even....

    ... no.

    Anyway. The flakies, they are pretty.

  4. This is gorgeous!! :D

  5. I really like it!! Packaging is weird tho.. wow.

    Too bad it didn't apply well for you. :( I finally bought my first flakie polish!! Thanks to you!! I had never heard of it before this blog. I love it!

  6. this top coat is simply divine!!

    I was wondering whether it would be possible to remove the captcha/word verification setting. Google has made them harder lately and it's really hard work to read them, making commenting difficult. If you are concerned about the spammers, you can turn on the 'comments on approval' setting? I meant this the nicest possible way, I love commenting, and silly captcha/word verification is spoiling the joy I have with commenting. xx

  7. I really like the flakies here, but a DIAPER!? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! that is not ok.

  8. I'd like to explain my diaper packing, it's to give a good padding and if there is every any breakage it soaks it up very well and keeps from leaking onto anything else in the package. I'm sorry that was a problem for you if you would email me I'll gladly send you something to make up for that, and I apologize for the old label, we eliminated those as soon as we found they were dissolving as such. I can send you a replacement one if you'd like or a new bottle of polish. Thanks for the honest review :)

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


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?
