Rainbow Lasers!

I don't even think I should bother writing an introductory paragraph at this point - it would just be more about how much I love glitter and rainbows.  Let's cut to the chase, shall we? Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! Yay! Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! Yay! Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies!  Rainbows! Glitter! Sparklies! 

You know that I would have covered my whole nails if I had the time last night but alas. Instead, rainbow glitter lasers!  If you don't want to commit to full nails, this is surprisingly eye catching way to go, especially if you add two coats of Seche Vite like I did to get the black super glossy.  To do this mani, I used my usual technique for placing glitter but rotated the glitter slightly so they tile horizontally.  Take a look at the thumbnail, you'll see what I mean.  Yay glitter rainbows, to reiterate.








The Verdict: I like how this turned out, beyond being shiny and sparkly.  I thought about adding another line of glitter to each nail, making french tips but this works too.  Much quicker too.

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

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.

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!
