Dry marble nail art with essie, Polish ‘M, Blackheart Beauty

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
essie Jamaica Me Crazy
Polish ‘M La Magie
Blackheart Beauty Iridescent Peacock

I used a dry marble method for this manicure; I dabbed each polish on a piece of saran wrap, marbled them, then let them alone to dry. Once dry, I peeled them up and placed them on my nails. It’s freaking messy, even with peel off latex barrier!

Drag marble nail art with Turtle Tootsie Polishes, Alchemy Lacquers, Polish ‘M, KBShimmer

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Turtle Tootsie Polishes February
Alchemy Lacquers Sweet Violet
Polish ‘M Shamrock [previously seen in my St. Patrick’s Day manicure]
KBShimmer Bling Out Loud
Formula X Mind Over Matter matte top coat

Afternoon everyone! Quick little post while the little ones sleep. 😀 I created this mani last night – I was trying to do something interesting with these four and Sinful Colors Transforming Top Coat in Concrete Jungle but couldn’t make something work. :/ Oh well! I rather thought this turned out like abstract flowers or something. If you’re interested in this technique, I did it similar to this tutorial from Yagala (pedicure warning!).

Polish ‘M This Game is Rigged! nail polish swatch + review

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Polish ‘M This Game is Rigged!, 2 coats and no top coat
Previously used in a smooshy manicure with Tonic Polish Sophia 2017 and Bad Bitch Polish Crabapple.

This was sheer, and I had to stand my bottle upside down for 5 or so minutes to get the bigger glitters to become more available. But it’s soft and feminine and lovely.

St. Patrick’s Day mani with Celestial Cosmetics, Polish ‘M, Baroness X

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Celestial Cosmetics Are You Mooning Me? 2 coats plus top coat. Formula was a bit thin but covered beautifully.
Polish ‘M Shamrock, 2 coats (umm, how could I not use this for a St. Patrick’s Day mani?). Formula was a bit thick but again, it covered beautifully and leveled nicely.
Baroness X Oz

Okay, I just couldn’t wait to show this off because I really love how it turned out! I used this tutorial from kombucha_witch_. I’m going to have to practice with this technique because it’s really nifty! I bought Are You Mooning Me? all because of Tanya’s swatches. It looked so amazing on her, I just had to buy it. And I’m so glad I did! I literally cannot stop staring at my nails. 😛

Tiger Stripe Nail Art manicure with Polish ‘M, Formula X, Sinful Colors

Purchased by Me buttonPolishes used:
Polish ‘M The Great Pumpkin, 2 coats. Good formula, if a little sheer; if I was going to wear it by itself, I would have done a third coat to cover my nail line completely.

Sinful Colors Coco Bae
Funky Fingers Dark Knight
Formula X Naughty Newton, 2 coats. This dries textured. Good formula, just a tad sheer.

Formula X Oh! Zone, 1 coat plus 2 coats of top coat over Naughty Newton.

Un-frog-gettable Cuticle Cover so I didn’t have to do so much clean up. This stuff works really nicely, is inexpensive, and comes in unscented.

This is my current mani and though the tiger stripe isn’t perfect (and my top coat smeared a bit), I really love how it came out. I haven’t done an animal print manicure in quite some time, and I got this idea after watching a video from kombucha_witch_ on instagram. (Go watch, I’ll wait.)

Tiger Stripe nail art manicure with Sinful Colors Coco Bae, Polish 'M The Great Pumpkin, Formula X Naughty Newton, Oh! Zone | Be Happy And Buy Polish

I first used Coco Bae, and just kept going over it on the stamp head until it started drying out and pulling up. Then I applied it to the nail.  Then I did the same with the black polish, I just used more of it. Of course, my other hand came out much nicer. Continue reading
