Review: Pam's Girly Bits Cosmic Ocean

Sometimes, you're just lucky with timing.  A couple of months ago I came across a couple reviews for Pam's Girly Bits polish and looked her up.  What do you know, she was accepting email orders just a few days later for some absolutely stunning polishes.  Sneaking an order in, I managed to pick up four of them and they really are something.  Let's take a look at one of her top coats, a beautiful duochrome shimmer, Cosmic Ocean.

Cosmic Ocean is nearly completely sheer on its own so I decided to layer it over two coats of American Apparel Passport Blue, rather than sticking to the same old black.  Man, I'm so glad I did as the effect is so stunning, it's beautiful.  Cosmic Ocean adds such a depth and subtle sparkle to a polish, I bet it would look amazing over everything.  Take a look at the close ups, you're going to want to see this. 







The Verdict: Looks like that amazingly sparkly finish you see sometimes on skateboards or custom painted cars.  I love it and can't wait to try it on, say, neon yellow or something ridiculous.

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. 

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....

My Most Complex Rainbow Glitter Mosaic Yet

It's no secret that when I get bored, I troll ebay for glitter.  I set myself a $10 budget, search for "holo hex glitter" or something, sort by buy it now and lowest price + shipping and go nuts.  I got a new package in the mail today and turns out we all have different definitions of "rhombus" as my rhombus glitter was distinctly hexagonally shaped.  Whatever, it's an excuse to the most rainbowy nails I've ever done.  They're so sparkly they're actually casting little rainbows on my keyboard as I type this.  Sure, they took a long time to do but look how sparkly in these static images! To start, I did my usual base, two coats of Rimmel Black Satin.  It cleans up well and doesn't do weird things to my glitter so it's a good base.  Then, using my usual technique and Sally Hansen Invisible top coat, I got to work with my glitter.  I've been having a lot of luck lately with starting with a column of glitter straight down the middle
