I’ve always fostered a slightly unhealthy addiction to having colourful nails. For my own wedding I had to curb the desire to walk down the aisle with a fluorescent mass of colour adhered to my finger tips. Luckily I work in an industry that doesn’t care what colour your nails are – as we wear gloves 100% of the time (unless I’m doing data entry, gloves and typing really crap me).

Today, being a day off (thank-goodness), I finally got the time to stalk down a few things I have been looking for for a little while. Like fresh eggs. And non-date-due milk. Also, a few new and interesting nail polishes. As a nail-polishing fan, I’ve been on the search for a reasonable glitter nail polish – namely in “matt-flakes”.

What I found was stop the press by Ulta3 – and consists of matte black and white glitters in two sizes in a clear base. Ulta 3 is a cheapie Aussie brand that can be picked up in many major pharmacies here in Oz – this sweet buy only cost me $2 and has amazing results in 1-2 coats. Unlike many glitters, stop the press doesn’t go on ridiculously thin. With a little coaxing, you can even get a pretty good glitter-effect with a single coat.ImageOne coat. Please excuse my manky nails.ImageTwo coats. Ew, my nails are so manky. D:Image
I paired this with one of Ulta3’s cream polish colours – a neon orange – tangelo twist that was I given at Christmas last year. The result? Jason pollock fabulous nails. I also bought Ulta3’s over the rainbow – which is choc-a-block with a myriad of coloured glitters. Can’t wait for an excuse to try it out!
