Sparkly Lasers! Or Lasers in Sparkly Space! One of them!

It's been a little while since I had my Pam's Girly Bits polishes delivered and yet I still haven't reviewed them!  Into the Night is a particularly sparkly one but I decided (with help from the lovely Tara) to try something different with it.  Thus, I present to you Sparkly Lasers!  Or, Lasers in Sparkly Space! Something! Words!  Toaster chicken shoe!

Anyway, I started with a base of American Apparel Neon Orange, let it dry a bit, added a thin coat of Seche Vite and waited.  I've been burnt over and over again with not waiting for a base colour to dry, I WAS NOT GOING TO BE TRICKED AGAIN DAMMIT.  I couldn't find my striping tape so it was cut up bits of labels a go-go.  They worked surprisingly well, look how clean the lines are on my thumb.  Once the labels were in place I added a thick (super thick) coat of Into the Night.  On closer inspection, this wasn't the greatest choice as it isn't that opaque in one coat but whatever, sparkly!







The Verdict: Going to have to wear Into The Night on its own, this doesn't do it justice.  Yay lasers?

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?
