Baroness X Topanga Teal, notes lost 😦
I wish I could give you more detail, other than I used this under CrowsToes Nail Color Buy Polish. It was a hard bugger to photograph correctly.

I talked to you about how I was feeling on Sunday and I guess that feeling hasn’t gone away. My kids still want to do the annual random acts of kindness in honor of my mom; to be honest, I don’t feel like doing it. I wanna stay at home and eat my feelings and not change out of my pajamas. But I’m gonna buck up and do it for my kids. And then maybe tonight, I’ll sit with a piece of cheesecake and some wine and just cry.
As always, I hope you join me in doing a random act of kindness today in honor of someone you love and cherish. Hashtag it #RAOK4Lucy so I can see too.
I based this mani on this one I saw from koba_nails_studio on instagram.
Good Sunday evening everyone, I hope you’ve had a good weekend. My husband didn’t work today for the first time in 3 weeks so it was really nice to have him home. Though I’ll be honest, I’m kind of down tonight because I realized/it hit home that the anniversary of my mom’s death is Wednesday. Like, I always know the date of it, but I just got to thinking about it tonight. And I just … it makes me so incredibly sad because of everything she has missed. Everything that has happened since her death that I wish I could share with her – the highs and the lows. The kids and I will still be doing the random acts of kindness in her honor, but tonight I’m allowing myself to feel the grief and sorrow over her death. I guess this muted mani matches my mood.
Polish ‘M The Great Pumpkin, 2 coats. Good formula, if a little sheer; if I was going to wear it by itself, I would have done a third coat to cover my nail line completely.
Sinful Colors Coco Bae
Funky Fingers Dark Knight
Formula X Naughty Newton, 2 coats. This dries textured. Good formula, just a tad sheer.
Formula X Oh! Zone, 1 coat plus 2 coats of top coat over Naughty Newton.
Un-frog-gettable Cuticle Cover so I didn’t have to do so much clean up. This stuff works really nicely, is inexpensive, and comes in unscented.
This is my current mani and though the tiger stripe isn’t perfect (and my top coat smeared a bit), I really love how it came out. I haven’t done an animal print manicure in quite some time, and I got this idea after watching a video from kombucha_witch_ on instagram. (Go watch, I’ll wait.)
I first used Coco Bae, and just kept going over it on the stamp head until it started drying out and pulling up. Then I applied it to the nail. Then I did the same with the black polish, I just used more of it. Of course, my other hand came out much nicer. Continue reading
Undead Red was runny, the black shreds are sparse AND they stick up. Boo.
Bite Me (1 coat over Undead Red above)
Bite Me (3 coats and no top coat) was very runny and sheer but the glitter had okay distribution.
Fancy Gloss Winter Wonderland, 3 coats plus top coat
This was sheer and applied a little uneven, but had a good consistency. The change is very subtle.
