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.

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:
