Review: Transparent Polish from Witchcraftery Inc.

As I normally do, I was derping around the internet when I came across a polish that claimed to make your nails transparent.  Shenanigans, thought I, I won't be fooled!  Polishes have made a lot of big claims in the past but that's a bit ridiculous.  I couldn't get it out of my head though and when I saw it on sale for $79.99 down from $199, I thought, why not.  It arrived on Friday and I was hesitant to try it as I was sure it was just going to match my skin colour or something.  My mind exploded when it ACTUALLY. MADE. MY NAILS. TRANSPARENT.

Application for this polish was not easy.  First, you had to coat your nails in the supplied base coat and explain exactly what your surroundings looks like, for exactly six minutes.  According to the booklet, the more descriptive you are, the better the effect.  Then, time for three coats of the polish itself, waiting two minutes and 36 seconds between each coat.  Finally, the top coat.  The first time I tried this it was bit cloudy and according to the forums this means I wasn't descriptive enough.  The second time though, it was perfect!




The Verdict:  I hope you'll forgive a departure from my normal poses, seeing my hand through my nails was creeping me out so I had to make sure an interesting background showed through.  This polish may be pricey but the effect - just amazing.

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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

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?
