Colourful Plaid Tutorial

Hello everyone!

As promised, I bring you the photo tutorial for my colourful plaid nails.. I apologize in advance.. while taking the photos, I only snapped ONE photo of each step. I never only photograph my nails once.. so I have no idea why I thought one photo of every step would suffice. I FAIL! But. Despite some of the fuzziness of the photos, I think you will all be able to understand what to do.

Shall we?

 


Just a reminder of what we are doing..


You don't have to use the exact same colours I used.. You can use any colours you have on hand, or colours that you love having together. I knew that I wanted to use the blue and pink from Pop Art and decided to go with another bright and contrasting colour, which is why I chose yellow. I also added the black and white as colours that sort of tie the whole look together. For even more fun, just use all different colours rather than play it safe with shades.



Start with your base colour. I used the blue side from Revlon Pop Art.




Then add four lines with your next colour. I used Zoya Pippa.




Next add two lines, one in the middle of the nail, and then one intersecting just below the "middle" of your nail. I used the pink side from Revlon Pop Art.




Next we are basically doing the same step as last time. A thinner line just off of the middle of the nail, with a line intersecting just above the "middle" of your nail. I used Orly Liquid Vinyl.




Last step is adding some white "flick dots", they aren't quite dots, and they aren't quite lines.. they are.. flicks! I add them across the pink lines, and I used Orly White Out.


I hope this has been somewhat educational.. and that you give this look a try! If you do, I would love to see them! Have fun - and I will see you all again soon!!

Black Marble (sort of).

Hey everyone!

-Insert gratuitous reasoning(s) of why I have been away-

Ok, now that that is out of the way, hi!

I just realized I still have a couple post photos stocked up. Sigh. I haven't even uploaded all that is currently living on my camera. The fear is real.

That is for another day. Mayhaps this weekend.

Until then.

I think I said it at some point on my blog, but I feel like 2017 is going to be the year that I constantly do faux marble nails. Note: not watermarbling. I have given in to that failed activity far too many times.

No, I mean the classy kind of marble. You know.

This time, I did it in reverse, because, why not?


 It counts, right?

Ugh. I love it.

All right, that is all for today. See you all again soon (I promise).

Revlon Galactic Pink

Hey everyone!

I have seen a small wealth of posts in FB groups and such on these Revlon holographic polishes.. and I didn't sprint out to buy them.. but I did happen to meander past a display of them the other day. I decided to snap up this pink shade. Kind of glad I did.

The formula is suuuper easy to work with, and very buildable - it also dried quite quickly. All wins in my book.

I am starting to get better at putting on a cuticle lotion or oil instead of picking at the skin/cuticles.. so, I am hoping that my nails will start growing now. Fingers crossed!

That is all for today - see you all again soon!

Glitter Marble 'Veining' Nails

Hey everyone!

Worst nail blogger on the planet, just checking in!

I am so sorry. I keep doing my nails, and not photographing them because, well, I am a monster? Yeah, that.

BUT! I got a wealth of compliments on there and remembered to snap photos before I 1. ruined them or 2. got annoyed and removed the polish and did something new - yay!

I LOVE these, but I feel like I want to do these marble veining with glitter again, but putting down a deeper base colour, and then glitter-ize it.
