Watermarbling with Halo Hues 2013 Collection

I cannot get enough of holographic polishes.  They're like crack to me.  That and sparklies, neons, blues, flakies, multichromes but holos have to be my favourite.  Especially when they're not just pastel colours and have a really strong rainbow, no matter what the lighting conditions.  Color Club Halo Hues 2013 collection is pretty much the best thing ever then, in my book.  I've tried watermarbling with the first collection to good result, so I had to try it with the 2013's.  And blue, because I love blue.

To start, I applied two coats of my base blue colour, Urban Outfitters Blue Velvet.  I love this blue creme so much I can't even articulate it properly.  It's just the best blue I own.  So once the blue was dry I taped off my nails and went to work with the blue and each of the six colours in the collection.  It's always a surprise to me how well these marble and keep their mega rainbows.  The last picture in this set captures it the best but trust me, it's about four times more rainbow-y in the sunlight.






The Verdict:  I love how this came out, especially it being something other than black marbled with the holos.  I rely too much on black with rainbows, gotta break out of my comfort zone at some point.  As I'm typing this, I'm having a vision of what this would look like with spacing out the holo polishes with six different rainbow creme polishes.....hmmmm.  I <3 you, holo 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

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

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
