Review: The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze

For quite I while there I was able to stay away from etsy.  All the glitter, it's like crack to me and I need money to, you know, do adult things.  My resolve cracked the other day when I found out that the Hungry Asian finally ships to Canada.  I managed to restrain myself to the little bottles so five polishes only came to ~$25.  Hooray for more indie polishes to swatch!

I wanted to layer Sneeze Breeze over a matching blue as I wasn't sure how tinted the base was.  American Apparel Neon Blue was a good place to start so on went two coats, followed by two coats of Sneeze Breeze.  Coverage was good, said two coats are enough for opacity.  From the look of it, there isn't too much tint so I really want to try this over a different coloured base.  Soon!  The polish itself is made up of light blue and black matte glitters which I love.  It reminds me of a non-sparkly version of Pretty & Polished Beach Bum but you can never have enough of these types of glitters!  







The Verdict: Love matte glitter and love blues, so this perfect for me.

The Polishes:

  • The Hungry Asian Sneeze Breeze, mini size, $4.50, etsy
  • American Apparel Neon Blue, American Apparel.

  1. Want so hard. Etsy is hard because they're all American. It's probably better that they don't usually ship to Canada =P

    1. As a fellow Etsy seller, I have to say I don't know any sellers who don't sell to Canada. And contrary to popular belief, we're not all American. Etsy truly has International appeal, and I for one have never had any trouble whatsoever with buying from, or selling to anyone in a different country.

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?

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!
