Review: Nails Inc Sprinkles Collection

I don't know about you all, but I should probably take a break from the glitter mosaics for a few days.  I'm going cross-eyed!  For a change, I'll be reviewing glitter polishes instead, which is surprisingly different.  I've been lusting after the Sprinkles Collection from Nails Inc for a while now so when I saw them in Sephora the other day I just couldn't help myself.  Rather than review them individually, a kind of Ombre mani it is!  Exclamation marks!

The pink polish in this collection is a little too close to the Deborah Lippmann/Claire's Candy Shop polish so I skipped that one, getting Pudding Lane, Sweets Way and Sugar House Lane.  All three polishes are absolute glitter bombs in a creme base and all of them apply like a dream.  After the hassles with Butter London Knackered, these were so easy to use.  They were opaque in two coats (I used three, you know, cos) and absolutely packed with glitter.  Look how pretty they are!  It makes me really happy to see the the Indie polish scene is influencing the "mainstream" brands, means more glitter for everyone yay! 






The Verdict: I love all these polishes.  They make your nails look like donuts, and given the collection is called Sprinkles, I count that as a successful naming.  They're super easy to apply and I just want to hug them.  Hooray glitter!

The Polishes:

  • Blue: Nails Inc Pudding Lane, $11.50, Sephora
  • White: Nails Inc Sweets Away, $11.50, Sephora
  • Brown: Nails Inc Sugar House Lane, $11.50, Sephora

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!
