Rainbow Glitter Herringbone Nails

As some of you might have noticed, I've been on something of a glitter kick lately.  The lovely Jenna from Lacquistry send me the most massive box of glitter the other day and I've been wracking my brains for ways to do it all justice.  A particularly enticing item in said delivery was a large pot of rainbow holographic glitter. I was magnetised to it, it is my crack and I finally decided to use it.  I present to you: RAINBOW GLITTER HERRINGBONE NAILS!

I actually filmed all of this as a time-lapse shot but something happened and it's just not.  This was a particularly tricky one do to as the glitter has to be rotated and flipped, to make sure the pieces lined up properly but it was so worth the effort.  Even my personal trainer was impressed although he is, also, easily swayed by glitter.  Anyway, I started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin then used my normal technique to add the glitter in, making sure I spread out the colours and lined it all up properly.  







The Verdict: It's a little spikey but I love how sparkly this is.  The best part - which doesn't really show - is that all this glitter is also holographic.  It was a lot of work, but so sparkly.  SPARKLY!

The Polishes:

  • Rimmel Black Satin
  • Rainbow diamond holographic glitter.

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

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

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!
