31DC2013 - 06 - Violet

Hey everyone!!

I know, I know.. I'm a day late! I seriously thought I had this all set up and ready to post for yesterday, but apparently I only dreamed that.. I don't think I'm the only one that wishes that dreams were our realities.. right?!

Anyways!

I did something really simple for violet day.. and I don't even know if I would consider this 'violet', so it is more so just 'purple' nails. I found THIS (side note: the image only took me to makeupalley.com, it didn't take me to a person, so if anyone happens to know who this image belongs to/can give me a direct link, that would be awesome!) image via pinterest, and I had 2/3 polish mentioned and was like 'this is stunning, I want to see this in person', so that is exactly what I did.


This is one coat of OPI Casino Royale (which I forgot what an amazing polish it was.. that is one thing that is rad about the challenge, busting out colours that you haven't used in awhile/might have forgotten about!), then I put a coat of Wet n Wild Back Alley Deals on top of that and one coat of Max Factor Fantasy Fire on top of that.

If I didn't do this at night, you would have got some sunlight photos.. this trio of polish makes for a really stunning layered experience.

That is all for toda- oh, wait, you're getting two posts today.. see you again REAL soon with another post!!

Grungey Leopard Nails

Hey everyone!

Today I have some grungey leopard print nails for you.. I had a different direction I had wanted to go in last night, but then ended up with this. Not disappointed.


I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base CoatButter London High TeaOrly Liquid VinylSally Hansen Terra-CoppaAcetoneBrushDotting ToolSeche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat
I did two coats of the base colour (High Tea), then I was adding "splatter" prints with black (Liquid Vinyl) but felt they were too perfect.. so.. I decided to douse them with some acetone.. then.. I just decided to "smoke" them out.. which made the nails look grungey. But. This is me. I couldn't stop there. I decided to make dots (Terra-Coppa) throughout the smokey black, then make it into leopard print. Love.

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

Cobalt Blue + Copper Stars

Hey everyone!

Just going to toss up a few posts in the next few days, as I have some backlogged posts..

This was a look using some cobalt blue polish - a friend had sent me a photo of some nails using a similar shade, and I needed to have that colour on asap.. this was the result.

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.
