Gold Swirls

Hey everyone!

Today I bring you some nails that I think are actually really pretty, but still very fun.

Gold swirls.. sounds pretty straight forward, but this gold polish is amazing!

A month and a smidge back, a co-worker/pal took me to CosmoProf (she has a card - yay!) and of course I picked up some nail polish. Two of the polish I picked up are featured in this look - and one of the polish is actually a new brand, to me.

I, of course, stocked up on Seche Vite (it was under $5 per bottle..) and I snapped up OPI You're Such A Budapest and Morgan Taylor Glitter & Gold.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • OPI You're Such A Budapest
  • Morgan Taylor Glitter & Gold
  • MND Vinyls
  • Sponge
  • Nail Experiments Liquid Latex
  • Tweezers
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I used the sponge method to apply the gold glitter, and again, just obsessed with that method! The glitterage is so opaque and easy to work with. Just so in love!

Vortex Swirl stencils are available HERE, and the liquid latex can be purchased by contacting Elena HERE

That is all for today - hope you are having an amazing day, and I will see you 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.
