Aurora Berry-alis

Good Morning & Happy #ManiMonday

I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend! Saturday evening I picked my BF up at the airport; so nice to have him home! Sunday we had a relaxing day. We drove to my parents for brunch then stayed at home to do nothing.

Today’s nails feature another polish from OPI Iceland Collection.

What I Used:
Base: OPI Aurora Berry-alis
Berries: Zoya Iris, Color Club Wild Cactus & an un-names brown polish.

Check out that hand pose! My cinderella hand is killing these shots! I love this berry colour. Another gorgeous colour for the fall season. I started off drawing the branches, then the leaves and finished off with a dotting tool to create the berries.

Thank you everyone for stopping by. I’m excited to ┬ákeep trying out the OPI collection. I already have my next mani planned out! Thanks again!

Cinderella in Yellow

Something terrible happened on the weekend.

Not to be overly dramatic or anything but I BROKE 3 NAILS ON MY PICTURE TAKING HAND! THIS IS TERRIBLE! I have 3 awful looking nubs now. My nail painting days are over! *sobs uncontrollably*.

But really, it look terrible, so terrible in fact I used my Cinderella hand for today’s post. Prepare for some awkward photos!

What I Used:
Base: Squeeze the Day from KB Shimmer Summer Collection
Dots: Aspen from Zoya. I used a medium-sized dotting tool  to create the dots.

It was incredibly difficult to hold the polish bottle with my Cinderella hand. It felt so awkward. (And I think it looks really awkward.)

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone was able to get through this post ok. I can barely handle how awkward my hand looks. Thanks again. See everyone on Thursday.

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.
