NEON NEON NEON NEON Nails from the Planet NEON. COS NEON

Greetings from Planet Neon, where the nails are the neon and the skin colour is weird!  I've been experimenting with some new stuff to stick to myself lately and it's really hard to choose! I asked Instagram to pick something for me from this picture and I'm happy they choose the neon bar studs.  As I'm wont to do, I of course had to cover my nails completely with these things.  Success!  Even if my camera couldn't handle NEON NEON NEON and skin colour.  Onwards! 

Not that it matters in this case but I started with three coats of Loreal Don't Shy Away, a really pretty dark plurple jelly.  It's really shiny and nice when, you know, you can see more than half a mm of the polish.  I wanted a nice deep base for my studs to stick.  This is a case where I could have used nail glue but then I worry I would never have seen my nails again.  So lots of top coat and patience won.  I did the usual process, starting in the middle and working my way out.  I was lucky the studs mostly fit vertically on my nails.  You can certainly trim them, but it's hard to cut them straight and avoid them bending.  I did trim some for the edges though.  Line it up on your nail then use small, sharp scissors like these to trim them.  Just don't tell my mum I used good scissors to cut nails studs.  Shhhh.  But yeah.  No extra top coat!  Just gingerly touching things for a while.  We aren't going for practicality here :)






The Vedict: I LOVE how these came out.  No base colour bleeding issues, just nice, crisp colours.  And, like, eye-ball-bustingly neon rainbows.  Now I just have to figure out how to stick glitter on these as well.....

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:
