31DC2014 Day X: Flowers! Lots of them!

Less complaining, more nails is now my motto and dammit that's a thing I'mma do.  Let's call these my nails for the Flowers prompt of the 31DC2014.  I rarely have a concrete idea in mind when I do my nails and this a good idea of how an idea evolves into pretty decent nails, if I do say so myself.  Let's take a look, shall we?

Rather than go through the same old steps of how I did this - you can look at any other post for that - let's go through how this came about, shall we, stream of consciousness style!  "Ok flowers.  Flowers.  Hmm.  Well, I could make flowers out of circle glitter. Ooh those white dots would work well.  Ok, so what do they go with?  I have those white daisy charms that I keep having to order in for the shop.  I'm sensing a theme here!  Ok, so I have two different kinds of daisies.  IN THE GRASS.  No, not that green, not that one or that or that or ohhh sparkly let's go with Formula X Lightning, any excuse to use those polishes.  It needs a base though... not that green not that not that yess Revlon Posh is perfect.  Two coast of that, two coats of Lightning, glue the charms on dammit get off my finger charm stupid glue ok yes it definitely needs more glitter daisies oh yes slather on that too thick top coat gotta buy more ok top coat aaarouuund the charms and done."  






The Verdict:  I'm actually really happy with how this turned out, even though it's green and I'm not super into that.  The flowers were all nice and flowery too.  Woo!

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

31DC2014 Day 6: Violet! Or what happens when you don't know when to stop adding stuff

Dammit this challenge is hard.  Taking proper photos is just the really hard part on top of actually doing the nails cos you have to edit them, fix the colours, and then actually write the post.  Hence the placeholder posts.  I'm totes going to go back and do them proper, I swear.  Ok so Violet.  Not super feeling it, so hence the mature-shirt-for-older-ladies thing I have going here.  Oh well.  It's a thing.  Onward!

FULL RAINBOW GLITTER INSANITYYYYYYYY

I don't know what it is, but there's something about hex glitter that is very pleasing to me.  The tessellation, the way the colours can interlace, it's just great.  The problem is, the tiny glitter - my favourite - is actually quite difficult to find. The red, especially, difficult to track down.  I FINALLY FOUND SIXTEEN COLOURS BIATCHES.  THUS, RAINBOW-Y-EST RAINBOWS EVER AND I'm sharing too at the The Sparkly Shop ... But we're here for this rainbow today.  LOOK AT THIS WOULD YOU.
