I don’t know how many people have seen this veil technique but this is now the second or third time I’ve done a mani with it and it’s so fun. I first saw this through nail_muse on instagram but I saw this variation and had to try my hand at it. I tried to do an accent nail with Tonic Polish Caliente with the veil technique but I don’t think it worked. :/ (It’s come to my attention that perfect10customnails is perhaps the originator of the veil neil technique. Just gotta give credit where it is due!) Continue reading

Easter Day spring marbled nail art manicure with B Squared Lacquer, Tonic Polish, Sally Hansen, Blackheart Beauty

Press Sample buttonPolishes used:
Sally Hansen White on Time, 2 coats [press sample]

B Squared Lacquer Kandi (pink), Rave (yellow), Down Tempo (blurple), The Drop (mint)

Tonic Polish Innocence, 2 coats plus top coat. Formula on this is thick, but in the perfect thickness for me.

Blackheart Beauty AB Star Gazer, 3 coats plus matte top coat plus shiny top coat. This is thick, in a cloying-never-drip-even-though-it-seems-like-it’s-gonna-drop-any-second way. Ugh. Sure is pretty though.

I’m so freaking pleased with how my Easter Day manicure turned out that I just have to show you right away! I don’t ever wanna take it off, that’s how much I love it – and I have copious amounts of pictures to prove it. 😛 I loosely followed this tutorial from alla_nails on instagram for the smooshy part of the manicure.

Holographic Dotticure Skittlette

Hey yo, all! I feel like the Fonz when I said that. 😀 I hope you are having a great day, and for this Monday morning I have a fun skittlette to show you.

I started with 2 coats of Glitter Gal Cosmetics Serpent Black on my pointer and pinky fingers, 2 coats of B Squared Lacquer Plur on my middle finger, and 3 thin coats of Reverie Nail Lacquer Mermaid Scales on my ring finger and thumb. The holographic dots on top of Serpent Black I created with Orly Mirrorball.

Mermaid Scales is a really lovely dense glitter bomb with blue and turquoise glitters and holographic finish. It was quite thick though, so I kind of struggled to do the thin coats.

Of course, I had to do some sun photos, right? This was such a fun & sparkly manicure to have on for awhile. What’s your favorite sparkly nail polish to slap on your nails?

Neon Pink + Yellow Stars and Palm Tree Nail Art

Hi everyone! I have kind of a summery manicure to show you today – which makes sense because this is from this past summer. LOL!

neon yellow and pink stars with palm tree nail art skittlette manicure | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with B Squared Lacquer Rave on my pointer and middle fingers, OPI Alpine Snow on my ring finger, and B Squared Kandi on my pinky and thumb. Using star stencils on painters tape, I painted over my pointer & middle fingers with Kandi, and did the opposite on my pinky & thumb.

I used SinfulColors water slide palm tree decals (from last summer) on my ring finger, along with a couple of studs. I was trying to go for a tropical feel, not sure if it worked out or not, but I liked it!

Let me know your thoughts in the comments 🙂
