Review: Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having

After slaving away over my soccer nails, I had to do something to balance out the sport.  What better time than to crack open my girliest girly girl polish and be a pretty pink princess for the day!  Aww yeah I'm a fancy lady.  Let's take a look at Dollish Polish I'll Have What She's Having.

To start, I wanted a nice matching base.  While being opaque, this polish is thick so I didn't want to have to deal with the four coats needed to get the opacity I like.  The best match I found was Essie Jamaican Me Crazy (  ಠ_ಠ  ) as it was the same purple tinted pink.  One went two coats.  I've reviewed this one before, it's nice.  Nothing standout but better than the normal, "boring" Essies.  Next, two coats of I'll Have What She's Having.  I don't think I've ever seen as much pink glitter in the one place as this polish.  Take a look at the close up: there's square, micro and hex glitter in at least three different shades.  The result is just so sparkly that it's making my male co-workers look at me funny when I get distracted by them. 







The Verdict: Turns out I don't have that much pink polish but oh do I <3 this one.  So sparkly, if a little thick to work with, and makes me all princessy.  Win!

What and Where to Buy:

  • I'll Have What She's Having, $8.75, Dollish Polish Store

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?
