Review: China Glaze Sun-Kissed

I don't normally talk about other blog posts of mine but holy crapballs guys, yesterday was my highest traffic day EVER with this little number.  I thought it was pretty good but just *booom* mind blown.  So thank you!  And since there was glitter yesterday, the only logical thing is to do more glitter today!

When they were released, I wasn't especially interested in the China Glaze Summer Neon collection.  I mean, I already have a LOT of neons so I didn't think to look.  Turns out, there are some amazing polishes in there, including the neon yellow pearly polish, Sun-kissed.  Application was really good with this one, only needing two coats and not being all streaky about it either.  When it was day, I used my stickiest top coat and my usual technique to add the glitter.  I worked in columns, alternating between holo blue and holo fushcia glitter.  What I wasn't expecting was for them to look like comic book shading when I was done!








The Verdict:  I love sparklies and neons and the fact that this came out with a cool shaded effect when I was done, that's just a bonus.  Yay, glitter for everyone!

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.
