A Tale of Two Lauras. No, Whore Island Can't be a Title, Laura

Hi.
This isn't Laura. This is another friend named Laura. Confusing? Maybe it's because you're dumb.

Point is, we did our nails this Saturday instead of going outside and rejoicing in nature's bounty. We stayed in and watched youtube of Ukraine's Got Talent. Clearly, we are two tragic individuals.


Anyway, we did each other's nails. I like greens, so I did Laura's in a light/dark green (American Apparel's 'Crescent Heights'/WarPaint Beauty's 'Slime) chevron. For me, Laura's famous sequins had to make an appearance.

To achieve the green chevron, we taped the shapes we liked (simple triangles) over top of a dried base coat of the alternate color. Once applied, a swift, thick coat of the top color was applied, the tape removed, and the shape cleaned up or reapplied as necessary.








For me, a simple taupe (Rimmel Lasting Finish Pro in 'Steel Grey') was necessary; my nails are currently shorter than I like them, so I wanted a simple single colour to offset their lack of length. Laura applied the brown sequins individually, something I would never attempt for myself due to a complete lack of coordination.





Actual, real, proper Laura's Verdict, and Interjection: Yay nails.  That's all I got.  I can also say what I want and otherfver1BGVF G H H s sSTOP MESSING WITH MY KEYBOARD DOUCHEBAG

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!
