Mattified Splatter

Hey everyone!

Ok. I am beyond obsessed with these nails. And I think part of it is my nail shape.. the other is the colours used.. and the technique.. and the chrome.. ugh. I could go on for a bit longer. O B S E S S E D.

I had a photo of nails done by Spektorsnails in my inspiration folder for so long.. and I hummed and hawed about doing them for so long.. and finally was like.. doooo ittttt!


Do you see what I am talking about!? I swear every time I look at these, I have to hide some deep guttural groan that I constantly want to emit. The obsession is real!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Color Club Twiggie
  • Color Club Label-less Dark Green
  • Sponge
  • Essie Matte About You
  • Essie No Place Like Chrome
  • Straw

The matte effect and the chrome overlay.. ok.. I am done talking about these. So obsessed.

Thanks for scoping the blog - see you all again soon!

Pastel Chevnrons + Rose Gold Glitter

Hey everyone!

Yaaaah.. I had zero inspiration for an excellent title.. so you get to know exactly what you are getting in to this time.

I recently acquired some nail vinyls from Make It Stick.. and had to do nails originally done by Lifeisbetterpolished - it was a screenshot my sister sent me, and I was obsessed with them!


When I was sporting these, everyone said they were my Easter nails.. and it is right about that time now.. so that works by me!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Lime Crime Parfait Day
  • Lime Crime Lavendairy
  • OPI Rose of Light
  • Formula X for Sephora Thrilling
  • China Glaze White on White
  • Nail Vinyls
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

That is all for today - see you all again soon! Happy Easter.. and.. happy birthday to me tomorrow! I have some pretty rad nails planned - so if I remember, you will get a bonus post for tomorrow as well! Woo!

Dry Marble Technique

Hey everyone!

Yes.. Dry marble technique.. well.. technically I am water marbling, but allowing the polish to "dry" on the water.. then using it as a nail decal. Does that sound confusing? It might. But. I think this will be my next video. It is actually a lot of fun to do. And while I think this first attempt is grand, it could be better.


I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Sally Hansen Bubblegum Pink
  • Sally Hansen  Babe Blue
  • Sally Hansen Mellow Yellow
  • Water
  • Dotting Tool
  • Bowl
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

I will probably film a video for this within the next week - so I will post up that gem soon. Or, there are probably a wealth online for you to look up in the mean time. Super fun technique without all the hassle of legit water marbling.

See you all again soon!
