A few weekends ago was my gramma’s 100th birthday celebration (her birthday is in February, but had the party in the summer) and I created these nails that weekend. I actually smooshed the neons around on a plastic baggie, let them dry overnight, and applied them the next morning.

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

I don’t know how many people have seen this veil technique but this is now the second or third time I’ve done a mani with it and it’s so fun. I first saw this through nail_muse on instagram but I saw this variation and had to try my hand at it. I tried to do an accent nail with Tonic Polish Caliente with the veil technique but I don’t think it worked. :/ (It’s come to my attention that perfect10customnails is perhaps the originator of the veil neil technique. Just gotta give credit where it is due!) Continue reading

Current mani here! I’ve been wanting to use Bolide from Turtle Tootsie Polishes since I bought it but everything I tried just didn’t click. I finally forced myself to sit down with it and come up with other complementary colors and a technique. And yes, I know you’ve seen a similar technique earlier this week. This technique was one I saw from yagala on instagram.

I love how the fluid nail art really looks like swirled candy or chocolate or even coffee. I started off with a shiny top coat and though I liked it, I really wanted to try it with a matte top coat.

After swatches, I have nail art with all 5 and Femme Fatale Cosmetics Jasmine (a clear-ish green to darker turquoise thermal).

In the Magnetic Polish Lovers group on Facebook awhile ago, Kyong Lee (who always knocks it out of the park with her nails) shared marbled nail art and I was so stunned I just had to know how she created it! She linked me to her tutorial and this was the first time I was able to do this kind of nail art, even though I’ve tried before.
