oil slick nail art distressed stamping manicure with KBShimmer magnetic polishes | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I don’t know what my obsession is with getting an oil slick puddle look on my nails but I keep trying it! This version is a magnetic version.

I was perusing instagram the other day (as one does when one is ignoring one’s children *ahem*) and noticed someone I follow (samantha1027) posted a photo about #polishswatchsunday. Curious about it, I clicked on the profile and wanted to jump in! The prompt for this Sunday is “toolbox red” and I pulled out an oldie: OPI The Thrill of Brazil. And because I can’t leave well enough alone, I created some nail art to go with. 🙂 Continue reading

12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge: Wrapping Paper

Good morning! For today’s prompt of ‘wrapping paper’ for the 12 Days of Christmas Nail Art Challenge, I took some inspiration from a photo I saw on lipglossandcrayon’s instagram page.

I started with 3 coats of Cult Nails Thrive on all the nails except the ring finger. I was kind of disappointed in the formula of Thrive, it was lumpy and hard to control. It is gorgeous though!

On my middle finger, I used 2 coats of Darling Diva Polish The Alchemist, aka the most perfect red holo polish I’ve ever tried. For the dots, I used The Alchemist and Girly Bits Walk Like An Egyptian.

I can’t wait to see what everyone else did for the wrapping paper prompt!

Did anyone else’s parents recycle wrapping paper every year? I swear some years I received presents wrapped in last year’s paper!
