Review: Ninja Polish Alexandrite and Color Changing Garnet

This far into the blogging game, I'm getting pretty good at tempering my expectations.  I need an amazing polish in a store or on the internet, as much as I want do get all excited, I know that it's probably not going to be that good.  The shimmer, the duochrome, the glitter, none of it will show on the nail quite as well as it does in the bottle.  That's ok, I'm an adult and can handle it most of the time.  UNTIL SOMETHING ACTUALLY LIVES UP TO MY EXPECTATIONS AND EVERYTHING ELSE IS RUINED.  Seriously, look how amazing Ninja Polish Alexandrite and Color Changing Garnet are. 

For a start, just LOOK AT THESE.  They are glass-flecked, duochrome-glitter filled duochromes that actually change colour.  When was the last time you saw that?? Alexandrite goes from green-blue-purple while Color Changing Garnet goes green-gold-copper-red.  The colour shift is complete too, just look at the thumb below.  Anyway, the mani itself started with two coats of Rimmel Black Satin, one coat of Seche Vite, tape, then two thin coats of both polishes.  FULL RAINBOW.  ALL CAPS.  YEAH.







The Verdict:  I love these polish so much.  Just buy them.  Don't think, go here.

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.
