Darling Diva Polish Rey, 2 coats [previously swatched]
Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype 2016, holographic purple with blue shift
I loosely based this nail art look on something I saw from koba_nails_studio on instagram. I started with Rey; painted the Fancy Gloss on a piece of saran wrap. Then using a stamper, I smooshed it on the polish, then kept smooshing it over itself until most of it was pulled up (I hope this makes sense, I’m writing this late at night!). Then I applied it to the nail. I’m thinking either the base color should have been either lighter or darker. It was hard to really see the beauty of the Fancy Gloss.

A few weekends ago was my gramma’s 100th birthday celebration (her birthday is in February, but had the party in the summer) and I created these nails that weekend. I actually smooshed the neons around on a plastic baggie, let them dry overnight, and applied them the next morning.

This is actually my first attempt at veil nails, before I did any of the others! I wanted to see if it would work with a magnetic nail polish and while it looks cool, it doesn’t have that veil look.

I am so tired, I gotta tell you. I feel like a broken record but when I get depressed and anxious, I get so tired. I had a doozy of a panic attack on Friday, the effects of which lasted all day. Then I was on edge all weekend. Yesterday I stayed in my pajamas and ate junk food all day. I did do my nails in a bright tropical(ish) skittlette and that helped a bit.

I freaking loved this mani. Flashy and just brilliant. Just one of those manicures that makes you feel amazing while you’re wearing it. Is that a little silly, maybe? I don’t care. 😛 I painted the two colors next to each other on a piece of sandwich baggie, then smooshed it with a stamper and placed it on the nail.
