Review: Sparkly Hearts with China Glaze Son of a Peach and Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It

I've talked about this before but I'm still finding it really hard to come up with innovative ways to show you all the indie polishes I can't seem to stop buying.  Sure, I could just pick a contrasting base colour and just go nuts but I feel like a ton of people already do that, and do it better.  When I realised my shape cuttery things worked with painter's tape (I didn't have any luck with regular tape - it gets stuck in the thing) I though I'd find a nice sparkly glitter polish, and get sparkling hearts. 

China Glaze has some great new neons out for summer and of course I bought a bunch.  A stand-out was Son of a Peach, a really great peach creme, funnily enough.  Once the three coats and the Seche Vite was properly dry, I cut out my hearts, pressed the tape to my hand to make sure it wouldn't pull up the base colour, then laid on Ninja Polish Sexy & I Know It, a mix of pink and blue micro holo glitter.  Not much more to say about this really, other than the glitter was a nice consistency is super sparkly. 







The Verdict:  I ruin myself with hand-placed glitter manis.  It's hard to get too worked up about something like this when I could be sparklier, could be neater.  Sparkly, though?

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. 

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....

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!
