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.

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

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.
