Anyway…I’ve shown you swatches of the newest P.O.P Polishes and yesterday you saw two nail art manicures with a few of those new polishes. I really wanted to do something interesting with the blacklight reactive top coat from P.O.P Polish besides using it for its intended purpose. I decided to created swirled decals. I looked around and found some polishes that looked nice together, which included a magnetic and a mainstream blacklight reactive polish.

First up is this dry brush/gradient with FrankenSlick and Jack O Lantern. Doesn’t this look like copper that has a patina?

For this mani, I started with a base of Scared Slick and created a sponged gradient with it and Eye of Newt. It turned out incredible!

I have one more mani to show you but you will have to wait until tomorrow! 😀 It will be worth it, I promise. 😛 Hint: it has to do with the Radioactive Glass that is blacklight reactive.

L.A. Colors Glows Color Craze nail polish collection (bottle photos)

Purchased by Me buttonI must admit that I went a little crazy at Walmart the other day, because I found basically untouched displays of these L.A. Colors Glows Color Craze polishes, the Pure Ice Limited Edition Halloween polishes, and of Wet N Wild Limited Edition Halloween products. More on the Wet N Wild & Pure Ice in a few days but how about some bottle photos of the Glows polishes?

Anyone else stand in the bathroom looking at yourself in the mirror and have imaginary conversations? Either replaying a conversation you’ve had and making it different or just totally making up a scenario and playing it out? Or am I the only one? 😀 For whatever reason (maybe it’s because I hate conflict), I’ll play out made-up scenarios where I actually tell people what I think of them instead of being polite and swallowing my feelings.

Have I ever shared that I’m kind of a freak about writing pens? I don’t know if anyone else has a strong preference for what kind of pen they prefer to write with but I definitely do. I love a good black, fine-tip (.3mm or .5mm preferred, .7mm is no good) ballpoint or Sharpie style pen. Gels are no go because usually I end up smearing them. I actually will just keep buying pens because usually I need them stashed places!

I’ve been trying to drink more water lately (I mean, who isn’t) and some days it is so easy to do, like I’m parched all day for water. Then other days, I’m all about the coffee. Okay, to be honest, I’m always all about the coffee. Anyway, I’ll do really well on drinking a good amount of water for a week and then it’s like I forget to drink any! :/

I got this idea for a gradient stripe from this instagram post (I can’t find the original artist though!). I thought, what a fun way to do a gradient! I was pleasantly surprised by how well the L.A. Colors Metal Nail Polish performed, tbh. I thought it would be fussy to work with and it wasn’t.

It’s the simple pleasures in life, right? Like seeing a beautiful rainbow after a storm. Now that we don’t live in the city proper, having an afternoon thunderstorm blow through is such a sight to behold. One of the best things about living in Montana is the big beautiful sky that allows you to see for miles and miles; seeing a thunderstorm from so far away and then coming through and then seeing a rainbow afterwards…sigh. It’s just so comforting to me.
