Review: OPI Pirouette My Whistle - Dammit that Name is Baaad

Alrighty, I have a "real" polish to show to you today!  The New York City Ballet collection from OPI has been a little underwhelming for me.  Sheer polishes are nice but my nails are so discoloured from all the swatching that it's not really an option for me.  However, I am completely incapable of resisting glitter so Pirouette My Whistle just had to be an exception.  

Pirouette My Whistle is a combination of pearly white (!!) glitter in a clear base with silver micro glitter.  I decided to swatch it over Revlon Dreamer and I'm glad I did as it looks like it's gently raining on my nails.  Application of both polishes was decent, each is here with two coats.  I just love this glitter.  It's so different for OPI, so soft and delicate.  I really hope they keep deviating from the norm like this, I NEED MORE DIFFERENT GLITTER, DAMMIT.






The Verdict: LOVE Pirouette My Whistle, as much as I want to punch the name.  Soft, delicate, like rain or snow, it's so pretty and different.  BUY IT.

  3. I just bought mine yesterday and was staring at my nails this morning thinking "This would make an amazing glitter for a winter/snow manicure." :)

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.
