Review: Seche Polish Rouge

I spend rather a lot of time on the internet, looking at nail polish and various vendors.  I found a particularly terrible looking site that sold cheap China Glaze polishes and decided to give it a shot, given I could use PayPal to cover me.  On a whim, I threw a bottle of red Seche polish, feeling like I should give it a try given how much I like the top coat.  Let's take a closer look at Seche Rouge.

Application was pretty good with this polish but nothing especially stand out.  I used two coats here although, looking at the photos, I wish I'd done another coat to even out the bumps in my nails.  It's also difficult to clean up, you can see how red my cuticles are, despite taking extra time to clean up.  I didn't notice it dried especially fast.  I wanted to jazz the plain red up a bit so I grabbed my striping tape to make the criss-cross pattern on my thumb and ring finger.  Using Glitter Gal Red Sparkle, I added the squares.  Didn't go with the red as well as I'd hoped, but it's close enough.  






The Verdict: I love red polish but it's such a pain to clean up.  For those curious, Seche polish isn't especially special, it's just normal polish.  I'll still love their top coat forever though.

  1. I think the brand is just "Seche". And "Vite" is the name of the fast drying top coat. I don't think their actual pigmented lacquers are supposed to be fast drying.

  2. It doesn't really look like anything special but for some reason, I really like your accent nails. I desperately need striping tape in my collection.

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!
