Review: Lacquistry Ladybuggie and My New Job Looking at Naked Men All Day

One of the elements that spurred me on on this blog early on was the indie polish movement.  Nerd Lacquer and Lacquistry were both creating the most sparkly, chunky, interesting, multifaceted and amazing polishes and I had to have them.  Lacquisty especially was one of the first people to use huge and holographic glitter and you know how much I'm into that.  They were followed by an avalanche of new brands and polishes and I just couldn't keep up.  It's time to show you though why Lacquistry is still amazing cos LOOK AT THIS POLISH.  I LOVE YOU JENNA AND PLEASE KEEP MAKING POLISHES.

I also got and started a new job this week!

I've had Lacquistry Ladybuggie for a little while now but the first time I tried it I made the mistake of layering it over black and it just drowns all the beautiful black glitter in this polish.  You do not want to do that.  There is so much varied glitter in here that you want to be able to see all of it, all the time cos it's worth it.  This time I layered over one coat of OPI Over and Over A-Gwen and it's perfect.  It's bright enough to go with the glitter but not so similar the glitter blends in.  With these types of chunky polishes, I recommend a really thin base colour because you want to be able to put as many coats of glitter on as possible without it getting too thick.  The red and black matte, metallic and holo glitter in all shapes and sizes is so cool.  I want to wear it always.  Of course it needs ladybug charms too.  Cos why not. 





The Verdict: I love this polish so much because not only ladybirds but it's just so complex.  You just don't see this awesome a mix of polish that often.  DO THIS MORE PLEASE EVERYONE.

As a side note, I'm going to keep posting as much as possible but I just started a new job this week so it's tricky.  This job is a little...different though.  I got a job as a Web Developer at the gay men hookup site Squirt.org.  That's right, I have a job where I talk requirements with my coworkers about a page covered in penises and gay porn ads.  It's awesome :D

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!

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

MOAR FLOWERS, NOW SPARKLY

Ok! So you may be feeling a sense of deja vu but WHO CARES SPARKLIES.  I actually did this flower mani before the neon one - I held the the neon glitter under my blacklight and there was no way I could not immediately apply it to my nails. Running The Sparkly Shop just continues to have perks...  And yes, I do have a blacklight bulb that handy.  Anyway, this glitter is just as amazing as the neon, it's RIDICULOUSLY sparkly.  Same thinness, nice and easy to work with.  Let's take a look, shall we?
