Review: Nail Venturous Voodoo

Hello hello, am back from my lovely weekend away although, brace yourselves, my nails were not happy about spending three days in a lake.  Fortunately I had some backup posts, while they recover for a bit.  So I've had Nail-Venturous Voodoo sitting in my drawer for a while but have been struggling to know what to do with it.  I bought it along with a bunch of other black and white glitters and it just kept getting overlooked in favour of more layer-able, clear based polishes.  Screw it, thought I, one can certainly have black nails in the height of summer!

Given that Voodoo has quite a dark base, I decided to do nothing fancy and start with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin, my go-to black.  Next, two coats of Voodoo.  The polish itself it very dark and filled with black, white and grey glitter.  Quite the bold choice with the black glitter, as it's only likely to show up over the lighter glitter.  I like it though, for that very reason.  The consistency was decent, although you do need to leave this one upside-down for a while to make sure the glitter is distributed evenly.  









The Verdict:  Not the most weather-appropriate nails given how summery it is in Toronto right now, but yay night time snow nails!  Not the most versatile polish but it sure is purty.

The Polishes:

  • Rimmel Black Satin, drug stores
  • Nail Venturous Voodoo, $9, ninjapolish.com

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.
