Review: Sally Hansen Misbehaved

It's tricky, being a nail blogger and having to deal with flying 22 hours from Toronto to Melbourne.  Not so much the flight - I have resources to deal with that.  It's more about how I'm going to go more than a day without doing my nails.  I hate it when they chip as I end up picking it all off and that's ever a good look.  Instead, I decided to go with my most reliable Sally Hansen Salon Effects, Misbehaved, the fishnet stocking print.

Using my normal application technique, I whacked these on.  There's something really durable about this particular pattern.  I've worn these for five actual days before and not wanted to claw it off so victory there.  I also like the pattern, nothing too obvious and in your face, just patterned and non-chipping.






The Verdict:  Always a good one this one.

So, I might be a bit flakey with posts over the next few days but it's only because I'm literally either in the air or at my parent's house and their SATELLITE INTERNET isn't 100%.  I'll be featuring a lot of guest posts (thanks to everyone that sent them in, I got them all!) so keep your face pointed in this blogs direction, it's about to get guest-posty

  1. Yeah, I don't know what it is about this particular pattern, but it's the only one of those that stayed on my nails more than a day or two without chipping. AND, bonus, I have gotten more compliments when I use this pattern than with any other of the stick on nail strips.

  2. Great idea for a long haul--I haven't used these before, mostly because most of the patterns I've seen look fun for maybe an accent nail but are a little much for me to do a full mani with. This is one is a cute compromise, though. Fun but, like you said, not all up in your face. ;)

    Hope you have an awesome trip! I'm planning a long-distance trek this summer too and am not looking forward to the nail situation. On the plus side, nail shopping I can't do here!

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

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!
