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." :)

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

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!
