I told you all last night that I was going to be taking off that spotted marbled mani and starting from scratch today and so here we are! I just wasn’t going to be able to handle the chipping on that mani plus I wasn’t entirely pleased with it. But this? Yeah, it’s summery and fresh and hot. I luff it. ❤ I also have a short tutorial for you so keep reading and don’t forget to share! Continue reading

Stripe Skittlette Nail Art manicure with Dreamland Lacquer, Blackheart Beauty, Crowstoes Nail Color

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
CrowsToes Nail Color Power Stone, 2 coats plus 2 coats of top coat. This had good consistency and formula but for extra shine, I needed 2 coats of top coat. This was from January 2018 Polish Pickup Pack.

Blackheart Beauty BH White AB Flakes, sponged on bare nail with matte top coat and 2 coats of shiny top coat. This was so thick, even sponging it on. And the flakes stick up. 😦 1/10 do not recommend.

Dreamland Lacquer Dragonberry (faded), 3 coats plus 1 coat of top coat. This is from Hella Holo Customs April 2016, about time I used it. This is the original Dragonberry that was replaced because it was a fader. It’s a lovely almost sherbet orange now.

So this is my current mani and to be honest I hated it until I added that simple stripe across my nail. How can one little change make such a huge difference? Who knows. Anyway, I couldn’t get color accuracy on the CrowsToes and I fiddled with color settings until my eyes crossed. It’s a much more vibrant purple (not blue) in real life, it freaking glows.

I think part of why I am finding blogging a drag (please read yesterday’s post if you haven’t already) is because I have a backlog of manis that I want to show you first so I don’t end up showing you what’s currently on my nails and I lose my excitement over my nails. No more! This is my current mani.

Flower Gradient Nail Art with Girly Bits Cosmetics January 2017 nail polish duo

Purchased by Me buttonGood morning all! I hope that you are having a good Memorial Day weekend if you are in the USA, and a good Monday regardless. Every Memorial Day, my children and I go to lay flowers at my uncle’s grave. His remains were recovered from the Vietnam War and came home a few years ago. It has always been my honor to go visit every year and lay flowers at his grave and pay my respects. At any rate, I do have some nail art to show you today with Girly Bits Cosmetics In One Year and Out the Other, Girly Bits Steely Resolution, Dreamland Lacquer Dragonberry II [Hella Holo Customs polish], and nail gems from Crystal Parade.
