Have I told you how nice it is to be in our new place? It’s crazy how cramped we were at our other house – literally every day I would have a headache because of the noise level. I have not had one headache while we’ve been in the new house! Continue reading

Hi everyone! I’ve missed you so much. I’ve missed blogging but priorities have taken over. We moved into our new house on July 1 and my life has been amok ever since. Packing and unpacking and buying new furnishings and continuing work on our basement…plus panic attacks and anxiety. It’s been nutty. I didn’t leave my house for 4 days this week because the thought of doing so filled me with so much gut-churning.

Anyway, I’m going to be trying hard get back on the blogging train, I do miss writing and sharing my life with you, dear reader. I hope you’ll forgive my absence! I have been painting my very short nails in the interim (moving is hell on nails, yo!), and I have much to share with you. All the best and see you soon!

Nail art with Fancy Gloss and Darling Diva Polish

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
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.
