Pick Three Polishes: Darling Diva Old King Billy Had a Ten Ft Willie, Lemming Lacquer March 2016, Color Club polishes

Purchased by Me buttonOkay, technically this isn’t really a Pick Three Polishes post because I used several Color Club polishes with it, but we’re going to pretend, okay? I sort of based this idea of gradient dots on a cake design that I saw awhile back, so I grabbed a bunch of blue Color Club polishes I had on hand, as well as Darling Diva Polish Old King Billy Had a Ten Foot Willie and Lemming Lacquer March 2016.

Darling Diva Polish OKBHATFW (there’s a mouthful) is a creme based crelly polish with gold and green flakes and scattered holographic specks. I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. It is sheer, but easily build able.

Lemming Lacquer March 2016 is a gold based holographic polish with purple specks and amber flakes (I think?). I’ve used 3 thin coats plus top coat. Again, this is sheer (tbh more sheer than I was expecting), but build able.

After I applied OKBATFW, I applied a circle stencil and then sponged the Color Clubs on top of that. Lastly, I applied two circle nail studs on my pointer finger.

At first, I wasn’t sure I liked how this turned out, but it ended up really nice! What do you think?

Guest Post from B Nailed To Perfection: Tropical Marbled Mani

Good morning, my lovely readers! Today’s guest post comes to you from Bethany at B Nailed to Perfection. I started following Bethany earlier this year and I love her stamped manicures so much! Let’s check out what she created today:

Hello Be Happy and Buy Polish readers! I’m Bethany from B Nailed To Perfection. I feel so honoured to be posting on behalf of Jessica while she takes a well deserved rest with her new baby. I have read and loved her blog for quite a while now so this is a big deal for me. I hope you enjoy my post 🙂

I wanted to try something I haven’t done before and that was marbling with nail polish. I have actually seen this technique demonstrated by Nail Stamp 4 Fun on YouTube. She dabs a few drops of polish onto the back of a stamping plate and then squishes her stamper to mix the colours. Then she applies it to her nail. What’s weird is that the polish almost turns into a stamped image?! You’ve got to try it, it’s really fun!

On my pinky finger I have 2 coats of Strut Your Stuff by Essie which is a bright blue creme. For my two marbled nails I used a base of Color Club French tip and then put a few drops of Strut Your Stuff onto the back of a stamping plate.

I added a few drops of Morgan Taylor Tokyo a Go Go onto the stamping plate and then mixed them and applied to my nails. There is also two coats of Tokyo a Go Go on my index finger. It is a gorgeous pink leaning purple cream.

I felt like the colours had a tropical feel so I grabbed my new MoYou Tropical plate 03 and stamped some images in white.

I sealed in my design with my favourite top coat which is H K Girl by Glisten & Glow.

Thank you for reading my guest post and if you liked it please feel feel to stalk me on the below 😉 Bye for now x

Wow, isn’t this just super pretty? That Morgan Taylor polish in particular is my favorite. See what I mean about being in love with her stamped manicures?! I hope you start following Bethany and fall in love with her manicures like I have. 🙂

I then used some heart studs to make “flowers” on my big toes. They didn’t really come out too straight, but hey, what do you expect? I have a big belly in my way right now! haha! 😀

Let’s check out this week’s Beauty Blog Coalition links:

Dotticure Skittlette

Good morning all! I hope you had a great weekend. 🙂 Today I thought I’d show you my manicure that I created when I went on my family trip.

Dotticure Skittlette NOTD | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I started off with 2 coats of Précision Nail Lacquer in Surfin’ in Mali-blue on my pointer and ring fingers, Pahlish Lambrusco on my middle finger, and Color Club Twiggie on my pinky.

To create the dots, I used Twiggie and Lambrusco, and over Twiggie on my pinky I used Pahlish Confetti Cannon.

This was a hit with my family members, and to my surprise, I had picked the colors from my aunt & uncle’s wedding (we were there to celebrate their anniversary). What a fun and happy coincidence! 🙂

I hope you have a good Monday and I’ll talk to you tomorrow,

Color Club miscellaneous nail polishes

Purchased by Me buttonGood afternoon everyone! I have four Color Club polishes that I picked up from llarowe awhile back to show you today: La Petite Mint-Sieur, Holy Chic!, Ultra Violet, and Bell Bottom Babe.

*Programming Note* I had quite a few polishes I wasn’t able to show you in 2015, so I’ll be trying to get those posted over the next couple of weeks. 

La Petite Mint-Sieur is a pretty minty green jelly polish. My photos show it a bit warmer than it is. This is 2 coats, no top coat:

Bell Bottom Babe is a great blurple polish with purple shimmer. It isn’t my favorite, but it is still pretty! This is 2 coats, with Serum No 5 top coat:

Overall, I’m glad I picked these four up, and I believe all four are still available for purchase through llarowe.com. Which of these four is your favorite?

I’ll be honest, I can’t wait until vacation is over and the kids go back to school, I’ve kind of ran out of things for them to do. Any ideas?

Color Club Holo Needle Drag Manicure

2014 favorite button | Be Happy And Buy PolishGood morning everyone! 🙂 I hope you are ready for the weekend! Today I have a fun new-to-me technique to show you: needle drag.Well, it’s not really a needle drag because I used a long skinny striper brush. So it’s a striper brush drag? haha!

I’ve started off with 1 thick coat of Color Club Silver Lake (a light grey-ish color). Then using Color Club Revvvolution (black holo), Twiggie (bright mint green), and Eternal Beauty (purple holo), each with a stripe down the nail, I then used the striper brush to swirl the colors into each other.

I loved this so much, I did this on all my nails and wore it for a few days. The only bad part was that the black kind of lost its holo-ness but it was still a bit sparkly!

Well, we have a busy weekend ahead for ourselves, what do your plans look like?
