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

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.
