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

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!
