Review: China Glaze Electrify and Riveting from the Hunger Games Collection

Today is the day that I do things that have already been done by heaps of people but I don't care cos I'm super interesting!  Otherwise known as yay, I finally got the polishes I wanted from the China Glaze Hunger Games collection!  It seemed like I just kept missing out on the good polishes from the collection so colour me happy when I finally found Riveting, Electrify and Smoke and Ashes at my local beauty supply store - on sale no less.  Given that it seems as though the first two are designed to go together, together they shall go!

First up, I added two coats of Riveting, the brilliant orange glass fleck foil.  It's so sparkly and aggressively orange, it's great.  Application was nice too, the two coats were plenty.  Once dry, I used my usual glitter gradient trick, painting Electrify two thirds of the way down my nail on one coat, and a third down on the second.  Let me tell you, the combination is super sparkly and really does look like fire.  Given that I've just started reading the books, I now know this is relevant!







The Verdict:  I'm glad I finally have these polishes.  Everyone and their dog may have already reviewed them but I can see why, it's a great collection.  So sparkly.

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.
