Review: Hello Kitty Violet Salome

Someone made the comment that apparently I'm 12.  It's not the most unreasonable comment - I do like all things sparkly, had princess nails for my birthday and just generally a little bit 12.  Sticking with that analogy, let me show you one of the Hello Kitty nail polishes I found in Australia, a shimmery duochrome Violet Salome.  

Other than sparklies, I also can't seem to resist a polish that has that oil slick colour shift around the edges.  Violet Salome is a classic example.  It looks mostly a reddish purple but right on the edges it shifts to green.  I am physically unable to stop myself from buying these, if I see them.  To test this polish out properly, I started with a coat of black polish, as I wasn't in the mood to layer on five coats.  I then followed it up with two coats of Violet Salome.  Despite being my least favourite shade of purple, the amount of sparkle that comes off this, combined with the different colours in different lights, it was worth going through having to buy a Hello Kitty product.








The Verdict: I love the colours this throws off at the edges.  It's been wearing well thus far and is super sparkly so it makes it a winner in my books.

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....

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!

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.
