Marble-ous

Really, I just wanted to play with some fun colors for “watermarble” day! I actually tried 4 combos before settling on this one…the right mix of bright, dark, and glitter.

I’ve been trying to marble with glitter polishes more frequently, since I rather love the effect they leave. This particular set of colors didn’t end up with the glitter mixed into the creme polishes as much as I would have hoped, but I still like it! For some reason, none of the purple or blues I used wanted to play along…and I wasn’t willing to risk my really expensive polishes just to see if they would marble.

I ended up using a bunch of polishes for this, and lets be honest, you probably cannot tell which is which in the photos! I named them all regardless :-p

Day 20….we are almost 2/3 through the 31 Day Challenge! And at this point I have completed all by the last day’s nail art. I like to pick from within the challenge for the honors nails you love prompt…I have a few ideas, but I am waiting around to see if someone does something that blows me away (and that I can imitate, cause lets be honest I would love to do ANYTHING Coewless has done for this challenge but I am simply not skilled enough). Hope you enjoyed!

Geometric Spaces

Finally, colors! Again, a simple polish + stamp design, but I do think these pair nicely.

There really isn’t much to say about this, its just brightly colored and glittery. I did think about making it more complicated, but I actually liked how this looked and decided to stop before I ruined it.

img_1972

I have a whole lot of polishes that I don’t use nearly as often as I should, and Teal Dimension is one of them. The depth is just lovely!

~ Teal holo: LA Girl – Teal Dimension
~ Teal stamping: Mentality – Teal Opaque

Hope you enjoyed! Happy Friday!

Twilight Zone

Do-do-DO-do….*cue creepy music*. This was a super fun mani to put together! My nails are unfortunately short, but I wanted to do something twisty and strange (and purple). Voila!

img_4154

I’ve been doing quite a bit of double-stamping or two-design-on-one-mani stamping recently. I don’t know why…its almost like a single design isn’t challenging enough? Which is unfortunate since I don’t have much time to paint my nails anymore!

I know some people don’t consider purple a halloween color, but I totally do.

Colors
~ Purple holo: LA Girl – Purple Effect
~ Purple: Zoya – Malia
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White

Anyway, hope you enjoyed!

In the Reef

I had rather forgotten that I had a plate to review from Lady Queen Beauty! I had used it once briefly…but it got buried under some Emily de Molly stamping plates that just arrived! Ah, the trials and tribulations of a tiny plate versus a larger one :-p

IMG_2315

Anyway, I went to town with this! I had been waiting to order a blue/teal jelly polish (and I finally did…) but it didn’t seem fair to make the plate wait for the polish to arrive! So, I just tried to put together a jelly-sandwich-type mani using regular polish. The result came out alright I think!

IMG_2339

Colors
~ Teal holo: LA Girl – Teal Dimension
~ Teal stamp: Mentality – Turquoise Opaque
~ Silver stamp: Mentality – White Opaque
~ Stamp: hehe – 012

IMG_2321

This plate is fun because it has a whole bunch of fun under the sea patterns! Lots of types of seaweed, lots of fish, some shell too! I had also forgotten that I owned Teal Dimension. It’s such a pretty teal holo glitter! Silly Eva, look through your collection more frequently!

If you want to pick up hehe plate 012 with all the fish and plants, you can find it at Lady Queen Beauty for $2.99 (plus 15% off with the code BPLC15. Enjoy!

Saree-Inspired

Last weekend, I attended two weddings. The second one was an Indian wedding, complete with sarees! The bride and groom were kind enough to get me and some of the other “white girls” sarees for the event! Mine was blue, burgundy, and gold. Of course, I had to make matching nails!

IMG_3614

The saree was predominately a beautiful blue/teal color, with purple in the borders and a bold golden design. I didn’t copy the design (very intricate!) but I did use the colors in this nail art.

Honestly, my camera had some trouble focusing on my nails they were so glittery! I think it was worth it though 😀 Hope you enjoyed!

Purple Twilight

Today I was feeling inspired by purple, and wanted to use some of my scattered holographic polishes! So, I put together a purple holo gradient and stamped over it.

IMG_2837

Indoors, the stamp was almost invisible. At least the gradient was pretty! And since I had trouble centering my stamp, maybe it is for the best :-p

IMG_4676

In the sun, the rainbow shine in the holographic polishes really came to life. I love holos! Look at all that sparkle!

IMG_2825

I had to take an unfocused picture. SO MUCH RAINBOW. *cough* Returning to sanity now…

IMG_2835

Colors

  • Light purple holo: Milani – Hi-Res
  • Dark purple holo: LA Girl – Purple Effect
  • Purple: Sally Hansen – Lacey Lilac
  • Stamp: Bundle Monster – 206

Orange Comet

I had a hard time deciding which of the many beautiful manis I wanted to re-create! I was a bit pressed for time, so I settled on something simple (and that I had the colors for)…Craftynail’s Day 7 entry.

IMG_3699

I used the same base color as her, LA Girl Teal Dimension (a beautiful chunky holographic teal/blue). I needed two thin coats for opacity. It went on very easily and I think it is just a beautiful color! It isn’t a rainbow-y as many of my other holos, but the chunkiness of the sparkles gives it a unique appearance in my collection.

IMG_3674

Jacqui/Craftynail added orange splashes to the tips of her nails. I decided to try something I saw on pinterest, and do a yellow-to-orange transition with dots, and then the “splash.” I think I tried too hard! The end result is cool…but not exactly what I was going for. I think it evokes what Jacqui put together, but in a messier way.

IMG_3702

Oh well! I hope you enjoy it anyway. I’ve had a lot of fun staring at it…I seldom use contrasting colors if one of them isn’t black or white!

IMG_3704

Colors

  • Teal: LA Girl – Teal Dimension
  • Yellow: Revlon – Electric
  • Orange 1: Wet n’ Wild – Sunny Side Up
  • Orange 2: Nail Art – Orange
  • Bright orange: Julep – Natasha

Enjoy! It has been a lot of pleasure taking fun in this 31 day challenge, but I think I’m going to take a bit of a break from posting daily! My nails (and schedule) just can’t keep up with it. I’m going to return to every-other-day posts for a while.
