Review: A England St George

Once in a blue moon I manage to just do one polish and LEAVE IT AT THAT.  Turns out you just need the right polish.  Let's take a look at A-England St George.

St George is an absolutely gorgeous forest green holo polish.  The holo isn't terribly noticeable but it gives the polish great dimension.  Application is really good too, you only need two coats and the second one is only really there to smooth it all out.  I'm not normally into greens but I can make an exception for this one.  







The Verdict: I feel so sophisticated with this polish.  No crazy glitters, neons, just a rich dark green.  It's nice.  I did actually try putting glitter over this polish and DO NOT DO IT, IT DOESN'T LOOK GOOD, trust me.

  2. I wouldn't have believed it was you! No hand-placed glitter in sight.

    It still looks gorgeous though - it's a lovely rich colour. I think I'd feel quite fancy wearing it too.

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.
