My Favourite Polish: Glitter Edition

Hey everyone!

My second edition of the 'My Favourite Polish' series. Today is going to be focused on... GLITTER! Now, to me, my subsection of "glitter" means that I need to put these polish on top of other polish.. Some polish contains glitter with a fairly opaque base and is okay without a base colour first.. so.. that is how I determine whether a polish is a glitter or not.. Yup.

Here are my top 10 favourite glitter polish - in no particular order!


OPI Glow Up Already - I have never actually posted a photo of anything I have done with this gem. How awful! It is a full out glitter gem with mostly greenish-gold toned glitter. And it is wonderful! I did like most of the glitters released in the Burlesque collection - but this one is definitely my favourite!

China Glaze CG In The City - Another polish that I haven't really posted using.. what is going on with me?! This is purple-y and silver-y and exquisite.

OPI Teenage Dream - All right. Another that I didn't post any looks using. WOW! This is making me seem like a complete fraud. I promise that I really do love these glitters! This one is pretty and pink and the name of my favourite Katy Perry song. I need to get to work and post up some manis using these gems, and FAST!

Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals - Purple and fuchsia glitter. Enough said.

Nails Inc Connaught Square -  This is a perfect glitter for galaxy nails! It is 3D and gorgeous! That is all.


OPI Crown Me Already! - Ok. When I think "glitter", I always think of silver glitter. This is the ultimate silver or silver on silver. It was the polish that I based my New Years nails on last year. Very pretty and very silver!

China Glaze Techno - This is another I don't have any posting for.. What have I been doing? Not taking photos for you all. This is AWFUL! Again, silver glitter with holographic silver glitter. It is just very, very pretty! A great addition to my collection.

China Glaze Snow Globe - Aptly named. It is seriously like the snow globe flakies.. perfect for Christmas themed manis or just for the 'something extra' touch to a single polish mani.

Nail Inc Bloomsbury Square - This is the other 'perfect for galaxy nails' glitter. I love it for that reason alone.

OPI Pirouette My Whistle - This is going to sound strange, and I feel weird writing it - but this is a delicate glitter. Two words that shouldn't really go together. I mean, glitter, to me, usually means IN YOUR FACE! But this one is so subdued and innocent. It really is perfection.

That is it for my top 10 glitter polish - what is your favourite glitter polish? Or even your top 10?! I'd love to know!!

Revlon Giveaway

GIVEAWAY CLOSED! WINNERS TO BE ANNOUNCED SOON!! Yaaaay! I am really excited to do this for all of you! I really appreciate all of you following me and commenting on my posts - it is amazing! So, I figured it was time to give back a bit. Now, this isn't a monster giveaway that I want to do - that will come sometime later. I have it all planned in my mind - BUT - until then, you'll have to put up with this! I picked up 3 polishes from the new Revlon collection the other day and really wanted to grab extras to giveaway, but the store was sold out of one of the colours after I bought it, and so, that thought was quickly squashed. Then, this evening, I ran in to another shop quickly - and they had a whole wealth of them - bingo! Giveaway time! The colours are: Starry Pink, Blue Mosaic & Facets of Fuchsia Supposedly FoF is a DL Bad Romance dupe. Sadly, I do not own that polish (I really, really wish I did) - but this polish is stunning - in fact, they all are! Thi

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone! Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink Sally Hansen  Babe Blue Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow Water Dotting Tool Bowl Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling. See you all again soon!

Countdown to Halloween 2017: Gross Nails

Hey everyone! Not sure what else to call these.. other than gross.. these are the nails I imagine some sadistic swamp-dwelling mother of mutants to have.. yeah, that. I used: China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat OPI Coca-Cola Red China Glaze Cranberry Splash KL Polish Snickerdoodle OPI Suzi - The First Lady of Nails OPI My Vampire Is Buff Orly Liquid Vinyl Sponge Dotting Tool Fake Nails These were rather fun to make.. but dangerous! Who knew breaking up fake nails would make them so sharp! Fun! That is all for today! See you tomorrow!
