Review: Lacquistry And Miles to Go Before I Sleep

So I'm a bit of a silly face.  Here I am, lamenting the fact that I'm trying to behave myself and not buy polish when it means I can't have my fix of indie polish goodness. The fact that they're almost impossible to get aside, it was nice to have a steady supply of sparklies to show all you lovely people.  Gazing at my indie drawer of my helmer (yes, I have an entire drawer full of indie polishes - you jelly :)?) I realised: there are like 10 polishes in here I haven't even a bit tried.  Aww yeah!  Brace yourselves, you're getting a few of these posts over the next week.

Let's start off Indie Week (sure, let's call it that) with a lovely Lacquistry lacquer (alliteration!), And Miles to Go Before I Sleep.  This polish is absolutely beautiful.  Despite being filled with silver micro glitter and silver holo hex glitter, it manages to look white in the bottle and over Sally Hansen Celeb City.  It looks like snow in the sunshine, all frosty and sparkly.  Application was really good.  I just needed the two coats over the base colour and it was good to go.  







The Verdict: Love it.  Anything that makes silver glitter look more white, seemingly by magic, is good by me.

Where to Buy:  Let me apologise in advance for all the indies I'm going to be posting.  I don't even know when or how you'll be able to get them.  Hopefully the indie market will calm down a bit soon but in the mean time, maybe stalk Etsy for new buyers?

$8.75 + shipping, Lacquistry Etsy 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?
