Review: Love and Beauty Royal

Guys guys guys, guess what: I managed to not over-embellish a polish!  Ok, that might have been a bit over-dramatic, but I'm still proud of myself for not ruining what turned out to be a really beautiful polish.  I scout out a large range of locations for polish so I end up with a ton of cheap polish that I never end up using.  When sorting through my collection the other day though, I noticed this Love & Beauty polish and couldn't help but try it out.  

Love & Beauty Royal is a beautiful midnight blue duochrome, with glass flecks that change from green to blue to purple.  Did I mention it's also super sparkly?  The polish itself is a little thin so I layered it over one coat of Rimmel Black Satin.  I'm so glad I did, two coats on top and it was perfect.  I've tried to catch all the colours here but it's really hard.  Looking at it closely while I'm typing now, I can see all three colours but of course cameras are rarely as co-operative. 







The Verdict: Not back for $3 hey?  I found this one in Forever 21 here in Toronto, but I'm sure you can find it around the place.  So sparkly <3

  1. that is SO pretty! they do make some great polishes, my f21 seems to be clearing them out or something though, the last 2 times ive gone they've had hardly any and they were all terrible shades.

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.
