Review: OPI Incognito in Sausalito with Glitter Triangle Half Moons!

I get asked a lot about how often I do my nails.  It's every day.  Unless I'm sleeping.  That means though that you guys don't get to see all the nails I do.  I have to like how the photos came out, how well I cleaned up, etc for me to actually post it.  So these nails were from a little while ago and I think they'll do for today.  Let's take a look at OPI Incognito in Sausalito, shall we? 


I'm obsessed with any blue polish, and that goes double for navies.  Even though I have Essie After School Boy's Blazer which is exactly the same as the OPI, of course I had to have both.  The drawback with the OPI is that it's that kind of blue that stains all around your nails.  I was worried that it would stain my nails but the base coat seemed to hold it off.  That's why the edges of my nails look blue.  No matter how much I tried, clean up was a nightmare.  So be careful, guys!  Anyway, it's a gorgeous, shiny, navy when it is on your nails and worked really well with my glitter triangle half-moons.  They look like pansies!  This is pleasing to me.  Usual technique for applying the glitter, just paint on your slow drying top coat and stick your glitter on.  I found doing a line down the middle still works well here.






The Verdict:  Love the colour of the polish, not a fan of the staining.  I think I might have to stick with the Essie for now.  At least it's sparkly!

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!
