Review: Revlon Silver Coin with Fimo Flowers

In an effort to keep showing you new and different manis (I'd totes do a glitter mosaic every day (and totes is ok to use, I checked :) )) I've been trolling through ebay and ordering things to stick on my nails.  It's surprising the amount of stuff you can get sent to you for maybe $2, including shipping.  I ordered striping tape, fimo sticks, fimo pre-sliced pieces, stickers, you name it. I've had these pretty fimo flowers sitting on my desk for a while now so I though I'd give them a try.

First up, two coats of Revlon Silver Coin.  I couldn't find my Sally Hansen Celeb City but Silver Coin does well for a silver.  It's not as sparkly as Celeb City but application was decent at two coats so..there you go.  One thing I learnt with these is that you have to really let the base colour dry before you start on the fimo.  Once it was dry, and using nail glue, I stuck each piece on to my nail.  They actually held on quite well.  I was able to do laundry without any falling off.  They're a high maintenance look, that's for sure, but if you have a fancy occasion they'd be a nice accent.  Also, I toootttally didn't stick anything together with the nail glue, that's just silly :D






The Verdict: There's something about fimo I love, so naturally I like this look.  With a strong nail glue it's quite durable too.  Yay flowers!

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....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
