Thirty Different Shades and Finishes in This Mani. So Sparkly!

So I have the plastic tray, right.  All the times I do glitter and I have bits left over but mixed together a bit, it goes in the tray.  I like to look at this tray cos it's sparkly and I like that.  I want to apply said mix to my nails but choosing is hard because there's so many different shapes and sizes.  The little hexes have the largest variety of colours and finishes, so why not that.  So I did that.  On all fives nails.  Over two days.  Cos this takes ages.  But sparkly!

I started with my usual base of black, going with two coats this time.  With your smaller glitters, you want a thinner base because otherwise your glitter surface can get a bit uneven and it'll show on your photos.  So after I applied my thin strip of top coat (this time Essence Absolute Pure) I laid down my centre column of glitter and built out each side.  All I did was try to not put any piece next to a piece of the same colour and finish.  Together the neon, pastel and regular colours in metallic, matte and holo glitter look totally awesome.  There are over thirty different glitters in here, people.  I'm proud of myself :D







The Verdict:  Of course I love this.  There is no way I'd spent the amount of time I did doing it if I didn't.  I know a lot of you won't understand why I'd spend such a long time sticking glitter to myself but that's ok.  It's my hobby.  And I really like sparklies.  Yay sparklies!

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

Review: Sephora X Outburst

As you can imagine, I was pretty excited when the new Sephora X polishes came out.  Not only were there a million of them, but I could go see them in person, circling the huge stand and singling out my prey.  I'm not the most happy that the good ones are FIFTEEN dollars each but what am I going to do, not buy any?? That's silly.  I have few now but my favourite so far as to be the incredibly Outburst.  LOOK AT IT:
