Valentine’s Watermarble

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great weekend! I was woken up this morning by my neighbours shoveling their driveway. Don’t get me wrong I’m glad they are shoveling their driveway and sidewalk but I wasn’t ready to get up! Oh well, It made me able to get more done during the day since I got up early! Today I tried to attempt the water-marbling technique. It has never quite worked out the way I wanted it to. Valentineswatermarble(3)

For this look I used Sinful Colors Snow Me White for the base and I water-marbled with China Glaze Feel the Breeze, Peonies and Park Ave and Dune our Thing. the pattern I tried to do in the water didn’t work out well so I just swirled it around and well, those nails happened.

I don’t mind how it turned out but I thought adding dots with China Glaze Spring in my Step to the swirl direction would help it look better. I also added heart from NCLA Heart Attack.

Above are the polishes used in the water marble.

Well I would consider this just above a pass in the water-marble world. Not terrible but could be better. Practice, practice, practice!

Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great week!

Animal Print

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! Today on the monthly challenge is animal, and I took that as animal print. My BF said I should do lizard print! It was hard to get a picture with this guy because he kept moving around! Here was my inspiration!

Sorry for the bad quality it was taken with my phone and like I said Dino the gecko (It is my BF’s pet) wouldn’t stay still!

Here is a better look of my lizard nails. I tried to match the colours of Dino so I sponged on China Glaze ‘Metro Pollen-tin’, Color Show ‘Shocking Seas’ and Sephora by OPI ‘Break a Leg Warmer’ on top of Sinful Colors ‘Snow me White’. I added a bit of sparkle under the stamping using Wet’N’Wild ‘Kaleidoscope’. I stamped with plate QA19 with Sinful Colors ‘Black on Black’.

The sparkle finger was a last min add-on. I have 2 huge breaks each on my ring fingers. Originally I was just going to put a happy face emoticon to cover it but instead I put a fake acrylic nail on. I covered it in loose sparkles in the same colours as the polishes.

DInoNails2Here is one last photo of DIno and my thumb nail. This was the best picture I could get of him. It kind of resembles him, right? Thanks everyone for stopping by! Enjoy the rest of the week!

Sparkles!

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great day! I know it’s the first day back to the work week after the holidays (which is hard, I know), but here are some sparkles(!) to brighten your day! As mentioned in my last post I’m doing a month-long challenge and yesterday’s theme was sparkles. It is hosted on Instagram so I wasn’t late posting it, I just like posting my blog posts on the days I planned! So here are some sparkles!

Sparkles (1)

For this look I used Orly Liquid Vinyl, Color Show Gilded Rose and topped with Orly Matte top coat. I used regular tape to create the triangles.

I absolutely LOVE Gilded Rose by Color Show. The fine gold specs have amazing coverage with hints of the rose glitter, it is just WOW. I love it paired with a matte black.

Looking at this picture these should have been my New Years Nails but it’s a little late now! There’s always next year! Thanks everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone tries to enjoy the rest of the work week!
