Review: Lacquistry Faux Fir

Onwards to show you more indie polishes that I magically have and is now impossible to get, therefore leaving me wracked with guilt because I'm essentially just teasing you!  So I can hear what you're thinking, and no, I didn't just glue sparkly pine needles to my nails, this is just Lacquistry Faux Fir!

I'm not normally one for greens, for some reason, but I had to make an exception for Faux Fir.  Anything with such a large amount of glitter could be poo brown and I'd find a way to like it.  There's bar glitter, hex, micro, you name it, it's all there, in a strong forest green. Anyway, for this one I started with two coats of Revlon Posh with a coat of Rimmel Black Satin on my ring finger.  I was curious to see if using a different undercolour would make for a good accent nail and it's not bad.  Next, two coats of Faux Fir.  Application was decent - this much glitter is always a little thick - but I had no problems getting it out of the bottle which is always a plus.  As always, I used a coat of Seche Vite and drying drops to get this to set.







The Verdict: So green, so sparkly.  I sound really biased for so many of these indie polishes but I swear, they're all actually this good.  One day we'll be able to get them easily-er.

Where to Buy:  $8.75, Lacquistry on Etsy

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

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....
