Marble Veins

Good Morning Nail World.

I hope everyone is having a great week so far! It felt like a Thursday all week so I’m finally glad it’s actually Thursday! I tried to a new technique on the blog today. I attempted marble veins.

What I Used:
Base: Zoya Aspen
Veins: Cosmetic Arts light Grey polish & Wet’N’Wild Black Creme

After my base dried I squiggled on the grey polish using the thinnest brush I have. I used a slightly larger brush to put acetone on the grey veins to dilute them. I did the same for the black lines but I didn’t dilute it quite as much.

My inspiration is the piece of marble we have in our shower. (We have a built-in recessed shelf in our shower for our shampoo bottles. The edges are all marble). My veins are quite strong compared to my inspiration, but I still love the outcome.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great weekend.

Easter Monday

Happy Easter Monday!

I’m jealous of the people who also get today off. I would have loved to have a 4 day weekend! Today’s nails are Easter themed. I wore them to my family’s dinner yesterday.

What I Used:
Base: A light purple by Color Club (no polish name on the bottle) & a Cosmetic Arts silver for the pinky
Stamping: MoYou London stamping plate Tourist 07 using China Glaze Spring in my Step & Grass is Lime Greener, and Maybelline Color Show Shocking Seas.
Pinky: I topped is off with a Cosmetic Arts silver glitter polish.

I did gradient stamping to give it the Easter feel. These nails are super cute but they didn’t last too long doing dishes at my parents after Easter Dinner. I had some minor chipping at the tips.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend and will have a great week!

Blobbicure

Good Morning, its Mani Monday!

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I had to pick up my parents from the airport on Saturday after their vacation in the Dominican. BUT Sunwing, the flight company, delayed their flight home for 13 HOURS with no explanation! A whole day wasted at the airport! It was the next day at 5am when they landed back in Canada. They are so happy to be home!

I was pretty tired the rest of the weekend but I am just glad my parents are home safe. I did have time to do my nails.

What I Used:
Base: A beautiful grey Cosmetic Arts polish (no name)
Blobs: Essie Tart Deco
Top: Seche Vite

This was my first time getting the blobbicure to work. The polish really spread well on my thumb nail. I only had maybe 2 nails that overflowed with nail polish, but it was easy to clean up.

The Cosmetic Arts grey polish is definitely one of my favourite greys. I’m so glad this blobbicure worked so well. It will be something I will do again, maybe with more colours.

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope you all have a wonderful week.
