So this isn’t my best attempt at an animal print, but my husband and kids guessed zebra and tiger prints when I asked. I guess it’s not that bad, then? Continue reading

Fancy Gloss Mystery Box Prototype 2016, holographic purple with blue shift
I loosely based this nail art look on something I saw from koba_nails_studio on instagram. I started with Rey; painted the Fancy Gloss on a piece of saran wrap. Then using a stamper, I smooshed it on the polish, then kept smooshing it over itself until most of it was pulled up (I hope this makes sense, I’m writing this late at night!). Then I applied it to the nail. I’m thinking either the base color should have been either lighter or darker. It was hard to really see the beauty of the Fancy Gloss.

So I saw this tutorial from ketonails that I tried out, but she hadn’t given it a name and I didn’t know what to call it. I asked in Hobby Polish Bloggers and I kind of liked brushed fluid nail art and fluid marble so I kind of combined the names. I have no idea if that’s what this technique is actually called but let’s go with it. This was so shifty and beautiful in person – I should have taken a video!
This was my first attempt at a thermal + magnetic manicure match up and it didn’t work (I actually did this one before the thermal/magnetic drag marble nail art or the thermal/magnetic gradient nail art). But it is totally still pretty! Continue reading
So after using Under Our Tree, and receiving Tequila Sunrise Sparked in the same mail, I decided it was just crying out for some nail art together. I settled on a marbled mani and I adore the results!
Here’s what Under Our Tree looks like alone. This is 2 coats plus matte top coat.
