Review: Revlon Stormy with Glitter Patterns

I'm not the most mature person in the world.  I have the sense of humour of a six year old and get jealous and one-uppy easily.  It's ok, I'm ok with it.  What it means though is that when I see a post like this on Reddit, I'm immediately consumed with the need to match it.  Don't know why, that's just what my brain thinks will be fun.  Brain, one day we'll learn.  Does mean I have sparkly nails though.

To start, I added two coats of Revlon Stormy, a grey-beige cream.  I kinda like these kinds of colours, given me a break from neons and makes me feel a bit more like an adult.  You know, until I cover it in glitter.  Then, using my small silver holo glitter and my usual technique, I created my different glitter patterns.  I think my favourites here are either my index finger or my ring, both are new for me and quite interesting.  





The Verdict: Yay, glitter for everyone and everyone should all the glitter all the time!

  1. What sort of top coat do you use? It's so bubbly!

  2. I see on the close up of your middle finger that there are a few overlapping pieces of glitter. I was just curious if they stuck together before you placed them, or if you placed one, couldn't move it and laid another on top of it for better positioning. I only wonder because I just found some glitter and was going to try hand placing it, but it was soooo static-y that I wasn't having much fun after having to take care to isolate each glitter before working.

  3. This is so pretty! I wish I had the patience to do something as gorgeous as this!

  4. This is really unique. I bet it was very zen-like placing the glitter. My favorite pattern is actually your thumb.

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

Review: JENsations Stars in Space and S'mores

Guess what everyone?  I'm going to review some indie polishes that you can actually buy without having to wait for email messages!  Yay!  And sparkly too!  Imagine all the holo glory as while my lightbox produces lovely even white light, it saps any and all rainbows from manis, leaving me to try to take pictures in my kitchen like a barbarian.  It may not sound that hard but when you use a manual focus 60mm macro lens that has a wafer-thin depth of field, it's not the easiest.  Anyway, let's take a look at two, that's right, two, beautiful polishes from JENsations , Stars in Space and S'mores. First up, Stars in Space.  I started with two coats of Zoya Caprice, a very bright purple creme that you'll be seeing a lot of as it makes for a great base.  Next, two coats of Stars in Space, the most fabulous mix of silver holo glitter.  There's stars, squares (man, I love square glitter), hexes and micro glitter.  I liked this one as there was enough glitter on

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
