Minnie Mouse Nails with OPI Over and Over A-Gwen (groan)

OMG LOOK GUYS I'M ACTUALLY DOING A BLOG POST AND IT HASN'T BEEN A MILLION years since the last one!  It's almost like I can organise myself to be able to go to work, sleep AND blog!  Yeah so I'm gradually working out a routine with working.  I did make the mistake of talking big about how I never have the same days two days in a row.  When I accidently wear the same nails THREE days in a row because I kept falling asleep on the couch, imagine the ribbing I got from my delightful co-worker Krista.  Thanks Krista.  Really appreciate it.  They're good nails!  I was sleepy!  Whatever.  I made them better yesterday by sticking jingly charms on them.  You're going to want to see the video at the end of this post.  I'm quite proud of how professional my videography is.  Anyway, MINNIE MOUSE NAILS YAYYYY 


First up, we need to talk about how amazing a red OPI Over and Over A-Gwen is, despite my having trouble typing the name cos of eye-rolling.  It's just the best, shiniest red ever.  Even though you will about a million cotton pads to get it off.  Cos it looks like you murdered someone.  Anyway, it's a great polish and it looks even greater when you stick white matte glitter on it!  Who doesn't want to be Minnie Mouse for a day? Or three.  OK I GET IT KRISTA GOD, even though she didn't say anything about it today.  Yeah, usual technique, cheap top coat then do your centre column, then fill in the sides.  Yesss.





The Verdict:  Love the polish, love the glitter, extra super love the charms I added later on, even though my bf HATES them with the fire of a thousand suns.  He actually got really angry at me cos I wouldn't stop jangling them at him.  I don't think that's fair.  Anyway, yay matte sparklies!

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.
