Review: Revlon Dreamer with Circus Glitter Mosaic

We have on our hands, everyone, a manicure that looks great from a distance and took me a great deal of time, but make me want to cry when looking at the macro-lensed pictures.  Let's take a look at the result of most of No Country for Old Men. 

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Dreamer, a nice sky blue creme.  Coverage was good on this one, and the colour is pretty too.  Then, using my usual technique, I added all my glitter in.  The diamonds were the hardest to work with as you have to cut the ends off to make sure you get full coverage at the cuticles and tips, and you'll still get a piece or two that stick up.  Then, for the first time ever, my top coat smeared my glitter on the most intricate nails, as well as pooling in the cuticles.  If I'd just taken a bit more time, been a bit more careful :(







The Verdict:  This was a good idea but something about the base colour I used, coupled with the top coat issues just makes me said.  It is sparkly though and ok when I hold my hand at arms length and squint a bit!

The Polishes:

  • Revlon Dreamer, various locations

  1. WOW it looks great! I mean, I guess I see what you're talking about from up close, but the awesome glittery impact from far away is GREAT. If you don't mind me asking, where do you find your small hex glitters? I only seem to be able to find larger ones ):

  3. I -love- that pinky nail! I don't know why it jumps out at me so much more than the middle finger, since it's the same pattern, but it just does. Now I seriously need to get me some diamond glitter. ^_^ I haven't bothered getting any big glitter, even though I adore your patterned glitter manis, because I knew I didn't have the patience to do it...but for that diamond pattern, I think I will practice. ^_^ Awesome, as usual, milady.

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

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!

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....
