Blooming Mauve

This mani is halfway between winter and spring: winter colors but with flowers and a butterfly! Given how cold (and snowy) it continues to be, I thought that was fitting.

This is a new-to-me polish, and I love it. For some reason I am super into shimmers right now, and this is subtle, elegant, and loaded with shimmer! What you see here is three thin coats of Quixotic Polish – It Rubbed Off From Friction. This polish is one of my only purchases from Hella Handmade Creations (I usually stick to Polish Pickup). The polish is is a beautiful dark grey-mauve swimming with pink shimmer, which also has a scattering of holo glitter. That said, while I love the color of the polish, it was a little thick and hard to work with.

I then made some stamping decals/advanced stamping (aka coloring the stamp in while it is on the stamper) using silver and purple. The color combo could have been a bit better, but it wasn’t terrible. I rather wish I had used black not silver! Or maybe simply white.

That’s all for today, happy Friday! Hope you enjoyed.

Dragonfly Wings

It’s wing day! I’ve done butterfly wings at least three times…possibly more. So this time I decided to mix it up a bit and try dragonfly wings a-la-kbkopija. Really, there are three differences…sorta. The wings start at the free-edge not the cuticle (although that was just so its easier to photograph), the wings are green, and the bottom edge also has dots.

I really like how these came out! I knew there was a reason I do wings so frequently :-p I started the whole thing with a three-color green/teal gradient, although you can’t see much of it in the final product. It still adds a bit of variety!

Every time I do wings, I just want to do more. If there is one type of nail art I can do…bug wings! Odd specialty :-p

Shifting Butterflies

I promised you guys butterflies today, so here we go! I absolutely love this mani…mostly because I love everything butterfly-oriented, but also because MULTICHROME and FLAKIES! Best combo ever 😀

I can’t take full credit for this…I got the idea from Very Emily because she comes up with some awesome ideas! She also has swatched just about every mutlichrome ever and I wish I had her nail polish life!

This the 3rd? 4th? time I’ve done butterfly wing nails, but its the first time I’ve done them from the free edge rather than the cuticle bed. I don’t like it as much, but it was worth trying!
