Review: China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy with Gold Holo Glitter

Guys, I'm struggling with inspiration a bit lately.  I've just done so many different glitter manis that it's getting quite difficult to come up with new ideas.  Or ideas that are different enough from what I've done a bunch of times already.  I spent two House episodes last night effectively just staring and stirring my little bags and pots of glitter, hoping for inspiration to strike.  I got a bit stuck on my gold holo circle glitter so that was the winner.  It's really hard, guys!  At least China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy is amazing. 


Same process as always here.  Three coats of Flip Flop Fantasy, a neon coral polish quite deserving of the hype.  It's been out of stock for ages at my beauty supply place and I can see why.  It did take three coats to even it out but it's just so vibrant that's ok.  It's really hard to capture in photos!  Once my three coats were done I went to town with my usual method of top coat and an orange stick.  Usual column down the middle, then build out each side.  It's funny, as I'm typing this, I can't get over how different it looks on my nails right now, over these photos.  I'll post the picture down below, trust me, it's better in person.  At least you can see how sparkly it is. 






The Verdict: Like the glitter, love the polish, didn't really do the both of them justice.  Any maybe when I start my time off on Monday I'll get back to my more enthusiastic self.  Tis sparkly though

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.
