Panda Nails!

So this particular manicure has a bit of a story behind it.  I've been making it my mission lately to exercise more and to help me make more progress I've been seeing a great personal trainer.  He's so good, he actually takes an interest in my nails and helps me brainstorm ideas.  His suggestions last night were E.T., angry birds, city skyline and pandas.  That's dedication for you.  Anyway, I had to go with pandas so time for more questionable painting skill displays!

To start, two coats of Nicole by OPI "Baby" Blue from the Justin Bieber collection.  Oh how I hate myself for that, but it was on sale and a nice sky blue, so lalalala totes not Justin Bieber.  Next, I painted the head and body of the bear with white acrylic paints, followed by the face, limbs and bamboo.  And the sun.  It came out reasonably cute but I think I prefer my giraffe nails at this point.  It's practice!





The Verdict: Cute idea, needs more practice.  Also, if you're looking for a great personal trainer in Toronto who does an excellent impression of caring about nail polish, his name is Benjamin Paley and you can find more information here.

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

I'm a Proper Mermaid This Time Beeeeaches

Ermerger guys, I don't have any glitter on me!  Well, I do, just on my nails.  I always have glitter on me.  And cat fluff.  It's funny how often my bf comes home with glitter in his beard.  That means it's been there all day... Anyway, new nail vinyls mean something a bit different.  I swear I'm not actually obsessed with mermaids, it just seems like it... Anyway, again, shall we?

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.
