Review: Color Club Revvvolution and Wild at Heart

I've had some great experiences with A-England polishes, specifically the beautiful one coat subtle linear holographics like Bridal Veil. You could have knocked me over with a feather when I found out that not only does Color Club have two polishes that look similar in the bottle, but actually apply just as well and are just as pretty. 

I've heard a lot about Color Club Revvvolution and Wild at Heart but dismissed it for the most part because I've been hurt before *hand to forehead*.  Turns out, both the charcoal Revvvolution and purple Wild at Heart have a great formula - only needing one coat if you're not fussy and two if you are - and actually have a rainbow holo in direct light.  It's amazing.  I love the look of the strong coloured holos.  I wanted to try the two of them together despite the colours not going together perfectedly and I figured triangles to be the way to go.  Once the two coats of purple was dry, I taped off the triangles using Scotch tape and added the grey.  As I can't leave well enough alone, I finished with glitter on the points.  Cos you know, why not. 








The Verdict: Love these polishes.  Seriously, get them right now.  They're reasonably priced with amazing depth and rainbows and are just as good as the more expensive A-England's or Glitter Gal's.  I mean, get those too but the Color Clubs will fit right in :)

  1. Color Club just came out with another set of holo polishes today, they are currently $10 on the site. They also have a few other older ones, a silver (worth the risque), a pale pinkish purple (fashion addict) and sort of a copper color (love em/leave em). :) These two look great together!

  2. Excellent call with the glitter highlights! Those little glints really draw attention to the contrast between the charcoal and the purple, and I love how you switched the colours on your ring finger. These are some great polishes! :)

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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?

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!
