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!

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?
