Diaster Nails That Turn Out Rad..

Hey everyone!

Technically I have a different mani that I should share with you all first - but I just finished these nails, and despite it going in a completely different direction then I had planned, I really like these.

My plan was to get really get patterns with the hairspray on the polish whilst in the water.. buuuut.. I am not sure if the mist wasn't fine enough, if my water was the right temp.. too many variables on what went wrong. My plan was to have these really acid-y-marble-y white, grey, and black nails. But. Since that was not happening, I decided to add hot pink in the mix - and ended up with these very.. grunge-y-abstract-y nails. Still a win!


I even included my left hand.. just to show how different they all are. My favourite is my thumb on my left hand.. but that right pinkie is giving me solid vibes as well. Right middle.. we need to have a chat.

I used:
China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
OPI Alpine Snow
Orly Mirror Mirror
OPI Black Onyx
Orly Neon Heat
Hair Spray
Water
Easy Peel Latex
Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So, you see, even a fail can turn into something rad!

Have a great day everyone -- see you again soon!!

Dainty Blue Floral

Hey everyone!

Ok, I absolutely lovvvvved this mani - BUT! I must have rubbed my hands on to my PJ pants whilst wearing lotion before the photos - all the photos showed copious amounts of black fuzz all over my nails and cuticles. Ugh. I was able to find one photo that was not too bad.

I got the idea from Nails 'n' Bobs - had it saved on a pinterest board for quite some time!

I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Formula X White Matter
  • OPI It's A Boy!
  • OPI You're Such A Budapest
  • Girly Bits It's Hoop To Be Square
  • OPI Jade Is The New Black
  • Dotting Tool
  • Little Brush
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

So pretty, and girly.. just love them!

Hope you are all having a rad day - see you again soon!!

Peach Sparklers

Hey everyone!

Even though I have been "moved in" to this casa for like.. 2 months now, I still have not finished unpacking all my nail polish... I know - that is bad! But, I am trying to catalogue what I have as well. It is a timely process. And I am superb at procrastination! It will get done.. I want to say this week - but let's not get too crazy!

Anyways.

As I was bringing them all out of a bin, I came across some gems that I knew I needed to use together..


 I used:
  • China Glaze Strong Adhesion Base Coat
  • Ellegee Beach Bum
  • GOSH Girls On Film
  • ESP Nail Vinyl (that is what I have written on the back)
  • Seche Vite Dry Fast Top Coat

Just a super simple, girly, and cheeky mani! I really liked my nails at that length.. now they are just getting to the length where they like to break - and then I just clip them right down to nothing.

Fingers crossed that my diligent slathering of cuticle oil & cream at night helps them stay long! Or just at the length they were here.

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