Re-Review: Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass

I've been in two minds about posting this particular entry, for two reasons: first, I have actually reviewed this polish before, and second, there is almost no way for anyone to buy this any more.  I decided to proceed as this has to be one of my absolute favourite polishes, and dammit, I wanted to wear it again.  I'm talking, of course, about Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass.  Amanda from Nerd Lacquer has completely disappeared and it looks as though there will only be ebay to actually buy these polishes.  I'm sorry :(

Let's marvel in this polish, since we're here.  Hyperspace Bypass is my most unique polish, and I don't use that term lightly.  I have a ton of almost identical polishes in my collection but only one neon mustard packed with silver and black hex glitter and micro holo particles.  It applies like a dream, needing three coats but giving that wonderful layered effect that only jellies can produce.  It's just so unique, I don't care it doesn't go with my skin tone, I love it so much.  It even managed to surprise me: I didn't even notice the holo glitter until I stepped outside.  Sigh.  I wish more people would franken instead of just making glitter-in-a-clear-base.  Don't get me wrong, I love that too but LOOK AT THIS.







The Verdict: My most distinct, unique polish.  It's in my top five of all time, I love it and am just sad Amanda isn't creating more.

The Polish:

  • Nerd Lacquer Hyperspace Bypass, $10, used to be from Etsy but no more :(

  1. I still love NL polishes and still love to see them. I'm sad that Amanda disappeared but I am happy and grateful that I managed to receive the few that I ordered from her before she disappeared.

    This is a crazy unique polish in every way.

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?
