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.

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?
