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.

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.
