Splatter Nails

AKA a very thin line separating good and terribad.

I swear this type of nail art is almost as elusive to me as water marbling. They don't seem like they would be that difficult, then I give them a whirl and basically fail. Yet I really do like the look of both.. Some year I will get the hang of it all!!



As you can see, I messed up quite badly, especially on my middle and ring fingers. The other three, I liked. I also liked what was going on on my right hand, but I forgot to take the photos before heading out to bowling last night.. My thumb nail is ripped and torn up.. Cannot show! BUT I can tell you that there is really only one fail nail on that hand..

I based the colours I used off this photo - and the colours I used were: Orly Liquid Vinyl as the base, followed with some Zoya Pippa, OPI Ogre-the-Top Blue, and Orly White Out. Sorry, I forgot to snap a bottle shot!

I guess I am going to have to go remove this polish and head back to the drawing board for something different - awe yeah! Have a great weekend everyone (:

I think it looks great. The color combination is amazing! And I don't even think of your ring finger nail as a fail. :) Can't wait to see your next attempt!

I haven't tried this technique yet. I love your thumb and pinky!

I think they look great, I like the colours you chose! Stuff like this can take a while to get the composition just right - the first few times I tried galaxy nails I haaated them because I couldn't balance the colours correctly! Just takes practice! :)

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!

This is actually …

Sponsored Giveaway Time!!

CLOSED!! WINNER TBA SOON!!
I know that this is primarily a nail polish blog – and that is always going to be my main focus – but, we all know that along with nail polish, I am also a huge make-up advocate. It is through these avenues that I was contacted by a company that works alongside Apothica, SkinCare RX & Skinbotanica. They are working with me to bring something awesome to all of you – a gift card giveaway!!!
One of the brands that Apothica carries is DuWop.. I personally have tried two different products from this line and loved them! I have tried Lip Venom & Cheek Venom in Sidewinder. I have to say, I was a bit of a skeptic on Lip Venom, but I finally picked it up to test it out – and it really does make your lips more plump!! The tingly feeling that it leaves is kind of fun as well.
I am going to snag this little blurb from the Apothica website to share a bit more of the history of DuWop:

Neutral Dots

Hey everyone!

Long time, no blog. I have just been soso bad about getting photos of my nails.. going to try to end the year on a high note. Fingers crossed!

I apologize for how drrrry my hands/cuticles look in these photos. You know how you know that your hands are dry, but you don't think they are that bad, and maybe they aren't, but a photo makes it look 50x worse? That.

I was able to snap up this set of 4 Butter London gem polishes awhile back.. very neutral, but it had a particular shade I had been eyeing.. but that is not what I have used here, naturally.




I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
Butter London Ta-ta!
Sally Hansen White On!
Dotting Tool
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today. I have mostly been wearing a wealth of polka dotted nail art.. there is something I want to re-visit from a couple of years back - will probably do that this weekend, and then keep going from there. Halloween is on the horizon.. so.. that will be a thing too. Take care…
