My hope is that this post will be fairly clear and straightforward with how I created my geode nail art decals. I have to give credit to an old tutorial by sveta_sanders which gave me the idea to create the nail decals in this way.  Continue reading

I shared with you some geode nail art decal photos last night and I’m back tonight with the nail art! I’m trying to get my geode nail art tutorial post together and hopefully that will be posted tomorrow night. 😀 I did not use any colored polish under the decals, just a clear coat to help them stick to the nail.

I’ll have a geode nail art blog post up soon with actual nails, and a tutorial post as well, but for right now I just had to share these decal photos I took! I probably have another 20 to 30 decals I didn’t take photos of (I was having so much fun!). Enjoy and if you’d like, download the photos for your own personal use. Continue reading

Lemming Lacquer Holo-maniacs Custom Number One nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonHey everyone! It’s a Tuesday, and that means tomorrow is rest day for me, thankfully. I love Tuesdays – after I exercise, that is. It just gives me that extra motivation to get my workout done for the day. Because then it’ll be Thursday before I have to workout again! Anyway, let’s take a look at Lemming Lacquer Holo-maniacs Custom No 1.

Lemming Lacquer Holo-maniacs Custom No 1 is a red holographic polish with added blue flakes. This had a good consistency but dries with a dull finish. This is 2 coats plus top coat.

I dunno why but for some reason I was disappointed when I put this on. Nothing against the polish itself because it looks gorgeous but it just wasn’t what I expected, you know. It just happens, for whatever reason.

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?

April Nouveau Geek indie nail polish box

Press Sample buttonGood morning everyone! I’m so excited to show you a new indie nail polish box called Nouveau Geek. Indie polish boxes are kind of all the rage now, there’s one for creme polish lovers, and holo sub boxes, and now there is a sub box for us geeky people! 😀

The first Nouveau Geek box is all about Super Mario. I don’t know about you but I have so many good memories of playing Super Mario when I was a teenager. Everything in this box is themed around Super Mario, including the polish names and the extras. Speaking of the extras….

Included in the box are a package of Super Mario 3D Gummies, a star mani bomb from Lemming Lacquer, 2 felt nail polish remover pads from le polish, a Koopa turtle, and a Super Mario brothers coin. Yeah, extras on point! Now are you ready for the polishes? Check them all out after the collage!
