Blue Damask

Well, today is my first call day in the CCU, so I am about to start at 28 hour shift (oh wow this is going to be exhausting).

IMG_2237

Anyway, this mani is basically the same mani as Fashioned Darkly from March of last year, but done in blue and silver rather than red and gold! I loved that mani and I was wearing a dress to a wedding that I thought would go well…in blue. So, ta-da!

IMG_8366

I don’t love it as much as the original, but I did enjoy wearing it! And somehow the black stamp held up even though I didn’t top coat it. Yay!

Short and sweet for today. Monday’s post, assuming I get around to posting it, is bright and colorful :-p. Enjoy!

Purple Tilting Gold

This is one of my recent favorites! I was going to throw it into a “favorites” week (I have a few on back log) but I ran out of manis on my computer and I needed a last minute edit so here we go!

IMG_5543

The design is actually very simple, but the polishes are anything but! A purple multichrome gradient with a gold multichrome, a deep triangle of gold glitter, and then stamping on a black triangle. The black triangle initially looked matte (as most stamped designs do) and I ended up LOVING how that looked so I re-matted the triangle at the end. I tried it completely glossy and it just didn’t have the same pop!

IMG_5608

The base color here is yet another new holiday polish that I received from Nail Polish Canada. This one is called Tilted, by ILNP. What you see here are two thin coats of the polish, which shifts from indigo to purple to burgundy to red-gold to green. I posted a photo taken in my living room (hence the really funny lighting!) since I went downstairs to play some mariokart with a friend and the shift was super crazy strong! Under direct light its mostly an indigo and purple with hints of burgundy.

IMG_5370

I have a slight problem…I definitely already own too many multichromes and in particular too many that start with purple. I think I might have to part with either this or one of my other three because this many is nuts! Or, I can make the shiftiest dragon egg every, but I would feel quite foolish wasting such a pretty color with polish that doesn’t make your nails fall off :-p

IMG_5431

Colors:
~ Purple multichrome: ILNP – Tilted
~ Gold multichrome: Catrice – Genius in the Bottle
~ Gold glitter: ILNP – Clockwork
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Stamp: EdM – 03

IMG_8570

I am a bit surprised at how hard it is to gradient with multichromes. Genius in the Bottle did NOT want to go on in any meaningful way! It is usually a gold-copper-green shifter and all you really see here is the gold. Still cool, but not quite what I was going for.

IMG_5525

Hope you enjoyed! I am returning today, so I hope I can throw together a new post by Friday. If not, just know that it is Match day for residency and I might instead be out partying (or hiding away if I don’t get one of my top 5 choices).

Flakie Overlay

I think the theme of this week is “things Eva matted.” However, unlike Monday’s post, I am really sad that this mani did not end up glossy!

IMG_2509

The design was inspired by @kgrdnr, as many good things are. I mostly just wanted to use Ski Lodge by ILNP because it somehow found its way onto my desk. However, then I decided it wasn’t quite glittery enough, and I added some flakies over top. Voila!

IMG_2522

Despite being really simple, I think this came out rather awesome. I have missed working with dark greens (they are not an approved-of color in the hospital or on the interview trail), and holographic + flakie polishes are an awesome combination.

IMG_2617

Colors:
~ Dark green creme: Sinful Colors – Last Chance
~ Dark green holo: ILNP – Ski Lodge
~ Green flakies: Lyn B Designs – The Speed of Light, you Know
~ Gold: Salon Perfect – Gold Leaf
~ Matte: KBShimmer – Oh Matte!

IMG_7770

Regardless, you can also see why I am sad I matted this! Usually I am all-for matted flakies, but I ended up removing some of the depth in the design and certainly in getting rid of the awesome holo inherent in Ski Lodge. Oops! I’ll likely try a similar design with a different color, and I just need to remember to keep it glossy 🙂

Rainbow Splotches

This mani was a disaster, but a very colorful one! Ergo, rainbow day in the 31 Day Challenge. To achieve this craziness, I tested two types of polish (metallic vs jelly over silver), three ways of applying the polish (small splotches, big splotches, and stamper squish), and 5 stamps. Hilariously (aka sadly) when I had finally settled on colors, method of application, and stamp…the application didn’t work! It looked awful. So I switched and it took forever to correct the mistake, but the end result was super shimmery and colorful regardless :-p

IMG_0262

The design itself was inspired by Fashion Polish, although I don’t own those type of bold jellies nor do I own a stamp even close to what she has! So I improvised. All my stamps didn’t look anything like hers so I gave up and went with a different fun stamp instead.

IMG_0238

I liked both the matte and shiny versions of this mani! I matted it at the end cause that is what she had done…but I don’t know how I feel about it vs the shiny! Any votes for either direction?

IMG_0247

So many colors! I don’t actually own a bright purple metallic, so I used a subtle shimmer instead. My only purple metallics are in the dark-to-very-dark range. I hand’t realized!

IMG_7002

I hope you enjoyed!

Variations on Grey

This mani was the result of me just playing around with black, silver, and grey. I wanted to re-test my black holo base…which of course is actually a grey. That is always disappointing!

IMG_7896

I ended up adding a silvery white stamp, and then covering around half the nail with grey matte polish. In the end I decided I was going for some type of fancy clothing (a vest over a shirt? I don’t know)…and then I added dots. Because when in doubt I always add dots. Sometimes it helps!

IMG_7873

The design was mirrored over my hands, which is to say one had the V-shape starting at the cuticles and the other had it starting at my free edge. I am biased in which I liked better, mostly because I really like square-shaped nails, not rounded ones!

IMG_6327

Some day, some polish maker will come up with a black holo that is both wonderfully holographic AND is not grey. To be fair, I have no idea how that would be achieved, but a girl can dream!

IMG_6325

Hope you enjoyed! On a personal update: I can bend my elbow again! So editing for the rest of this week should be alright 🙂

Orthodox Easter Eggs

Unlike ‘normal’ easter eggs, at a Greek (or maybe any type of Orthodox) easter celebration, the eggs are dyed a deep red. I’ve always thought they were pretty, so I decided to mimic the design on my nails this year! It also gives away how long ago I painted these nails, but oh well.

IMG_6846

Although none of the eggs I interacted with over the easter weekend this year had patterns, it is apparently acceptable to scratch patterns into the red dye (especially in Russian Orthodoxy I think). So, I found a picture of some very pretty patterned red eggs, and went as close as I could with my nails.

IMG_6026

Unfortunately, I forgot to make a post for these when I painted them…so I actually have no idea which colors I used! Sorry. All I can say for sure is that it was a LOT of reds (I think like 6 reds or so) :-/

IMG_6027

The saddest part for me though, was that no one recognized what I was trying to do over easter! People liked the red, but they didn’t figure out they were eggs. (To be fair, I have no idea how they could have made that jump).

IMG_6840

Hope you enjoyed!

Moroccan Faded Pink

Another simple pink mani for clinic! Luckily, this time around I am allowed to have a bit of a longer free edge to my nails, and I am willing to be a TINY bit more daring and do some darker colors.

IMG_6412

The inspiration for this came from a pinterest pin. Unfortunately, when I was putting the gradient together I didn’t have the image in front of me, and I assumed it was more pink and less white! So, I ended up doing the stamp in white since most of my nail was pink instead of the inverse. Knowing how much longer I’m going to need to wear pink nails, I imagine I will likely try the correct order of this mani (with maybe a slightly different color palette) at some point.

IMG_5786

I almost decided not to matte the final product, but I am glad I did! It looks pretty awesome, even if it is pink. It’s also been a while since I’ve done gradients, so I am pleasantly surprised at how well this one turned out!

IMG_6398

Colors:
~ White: Sinful Colors – Snow me White
~ Light pink: Zoya – Rue
~ Pink: Essie – Eternal Optimist
~ Stamp: BM – XL205

IMG_6380

Hope you enjoyed! And if I’m lucky I might get to do even more colors on a fairly regular basis after this 🙂

Purple Silver Dots

One of my nails broke! Not that this is a rare occurrence, but it makes me sad nonetheless. I ended up rounding off my fingernails, and didn’t want to do any dramatic nail art because I don’t like how my nails look rounded. I settled on something simple.

IMG_5556

Being honest, I liked these better with a few less dots! Whoops. I always get carried away with dotticures :-/ I do like the contrast between the matte base and the varying levels of shiny dots. This mani has some fun texture to it!

That’s really all there is to say for today! Something simple and purple and textured. Hope you enjoyed!

Fashioned Darkly

This is going to be a week of my recent favorite manis (stemming back to around January) to celebrate that I am done with clerkships! For the rest of medical school, I do not have to take any class I don’t want to. I also don’t have to take another multiple choice exam (other than the boards, but oh well) until I graduate. This is amazing. So, pretty nail art!

IMG_4310

Today’s post is probably my favorite overall out of my recent works. The design was inspired by @i_annylook, who I just discovered and has some really awesome nail art! I need to go try all of it 🙂

IMG_4320

I actually really like the concept behind this too…a gradient and then a gradient stamp using one of the same colors from the underlying gradient, but with the stamp interrupted. I don’t have many stamping designs that I think would work well for this, but I’m going to have to go find some!

IMG_4307

Colors
~ Red: Pure Ice – Siren
~ Black: Sinful Colors – Black on Black
~ Gold: Essie – Good as Gold
~ Matte: KBShimmer – Oh Matte!
~ Stamp: JQ – L20

IMG_5167

Also, matting things just makes them better. I think I’d matte approximately 50% of everything I do…except that the design doesn’t last as long with matte top coat! Especially on surgical things where we are required to wash our hands with really harsh chemicals before doing anything. Anyway, I hope you enjoyed! Stay tuned for more awesome stuff this week 😀

Valentines Dotticure

I wasn’t sure if I was going to use this as my day-before-Valentine’s Day mani or not…because there are no hearts! But really, I didn’t paint any hearts this year, so have some pink and red and gold dots 😀

img_5257

This mani was inspired by @badgirlnails…which really just seems to be a trend for me right now. I think I accidentally browsed her last approximately three years worth of manis and pinned them all to my to-try folder on pinterest. And they are all somewhat simple (like, 1-1.5 hours of work, rather than 3 hours of work) so when I don’t want to stamp I just keep turing to them! I would say whoops, but I honestly like her nail art a bunch so I don’t feel too bad about continually turned to it for inspiration.

img_5193

Sadly, I haven’t actually edited the mani that includes the swatch of the base color I’ve used here, Cherish by Picture Polish. I’ll see if I can’t get posted next week or something! The nail art that went with it is a bit boring, but it is a pretty polish. So, stay tuned for that!

Colors
~ Nude: Picture Polish – Cherish
~ Hot pink: WOW – #371
~ Bright pink: Revlon – Bubbly
~ Light pink: Wet n’ Wild – Tickled Pink
~ White: Wet n’ Wild – French White Creme

img_5253

Regardless, happy almost Valentine’s Day! I hope you eat a lot of chocolates and your lives are filled with flowers. Personally, I love going to the grocery store the day AFTER Valentine’s and grabbing all the half-price chocolate :-D. There is one more pink mani coming on Wednesday (just because), and then on to less girly pastures!

img_5247

I am a little curious myself…this is my first Valentine’s day since I got married. I don’t think my husband and I are doing anything we don’t usually do (small gifts, fancy dinner, and not-flowers), but will it feel different? I highly doubt it :-p. Hope you enjoyed the nail art!

Copperized

Gah. I had such high hopes for this mani and they did not pan out! This is not my best work (although it isn’t a total fail I suppose).

img_9143

I was trying to compare the two matte-finish Zoya green polishes: Honor and Veruschka. I bought Honor for a friend who really liked Veruschka, since Veruschka was discontinued. I wanted to compare the two before I gave Honor away just to see (sorry Amy, I wore this on one hand first!). Honestly, the two polishes are very very close. V is a little darker and more true-matte than H, but frankly its a bit hard to tell! I am glad I have V, I like the more matted finish a tad better.

img_9105

Ok, so, Honor by Zoya is a medium-dark-green polish with a semi-matte finish (more of a satin than a true matte) with shimmer. The shimmer is a bit hidden in the matte state, and I did not add top coat so no photo, sorry! This is three thin coats of Honor. As with all mattes, it dried down gratifyingly fast!

img_9117

I then went and directly compared to Veruschka…which is still a name I cannot spell half the time (hence the V earlier). I did one stripe of V up the middle of each nail (I have photos of that too, but they were a bit out of focus so unless someone cares deeply, I won’t be posting them). When that dried, I added another stripe of Honor, so that the design was a base of Honor with two thin lines of V and a middle line of Honor again. From the photo below, you can tell that V really is a half-shade darker, but you can’t tell the finish. V has a bit more shimmer (or it just stands out better against the darker finish) and dries down matte-er than Honor. That being said, I don’t think anyone needs to own both unless they REALLY like green mattes! As mentioned, I personally prefer V but only by a little.

Colors
~ Green matte: Zoya – Honor

~ Purple copper glitter: Zoya – Faye

img_3599

The design came about because I wanted to rebel against my recent hospital time with some 3D dots…although they took forever to dry! There are two colors of dots (which you cannot see in the outdoor photos because they are both soo glittery), and the overall effect was…meh. But I tried!

Gingerbread

Gingerbread men are totally more Christmas-themed than penguins! Unfortunately I did the spacing a bit strangely (note to my future self: do bow ties before buttons) so I don’t love these quite as much as I could but still, cute.

img_3535

The designs were inspired by Ana’s ManisAna’s Manis and ka_yee_or. I wanted to do all the gingerbread things, and so I went with it! Honestly, the houses came out MUCH better than I expected.

img_3503

Strangely enough, although matting down the nails didn’t actually change the color (and I did love the look afterward) it changed how my camera interpreted the color…so the matte photos needed quite a bit of color correction to make the nails look brown and not grey. They are still a little off, sorry!

Gates of Ruby

I am trying for a Thanksgiving-themed week…although I am not doing my thanksgiving mani until Wednesday or Thursday night! Which really means you won’t see it until next week at the earliest (sorry). Enjoy these in the meanwhile!

img_4679

I have bought surprisingly few new nail polishes this year…it is already November and I think I have maybe 20 new ones from the entire year? Which given how often I want to buy one is actually impressive. This is one of my recent purchases, Ruby by KBShimmer from their overwhelmingly sparkling Birthstone collection.

img_2590

Ruby was opaque in two easy coats, and incredibly glittery. The saturated reddish-pink jelly means that the silver flecks glow more pink than silver, but it is quite pretty! Unfortunately, this is definitely a pink-leaning red polish, rather than a true red. I like it anyway. Suuuuuper sparkly! Honestly, I like the other one I bought better (Sapphire), but this is quite a pretty color and I don’t have any light red glittery monstrosities in my collection yet! I almost want to buy the green (Emerald) as well, but I hardly wear my green glitters as is, and I own like 5 of them. At least I wear my blues and my reds!

img_2490

For the design, I started with just a geometric black stamp with the intention to matte the final pattern, but the result didn’t tickle me. So I added the gold and I love it! I still matted the finished design, and I am glad I did. I also bough the Oy Matte top coat from KBShimmer because my matte (a Sally Hansen) just wasn’t getting the job done. Oy Matte is wonderful!

Cityscape by Night

This mani took forever and I LOVE it! The only problem were some trapped air bubbles which I’ll talk about in a bit.

img_8777

This was inspired by @ponkle. I actually made the black sheer jelly myself. I bought a wet n’ wild top coat but it dries slower than grass grows, so I decided to add a few drops of the wet n’ wild black creme to it and make a sheer jelly polish for lace and things like this! I like it much better this way, although it still takes forever to dry. At least I can safely add a real fast-drying top coat!

img_8781

That being said, the black sheer jelly I made took three coats to even be a little visible…and I didn’t wait quite long enough between layers! Thus I ended up trapping a bunch of air bubbles. When I matted the final product, they all jumped out! It took 24 hours for them to really appear…so my initial photos look great but my sunlight photos look odd. I decided to just show one below…lets pretend that the bubbles are stars in the sky? That works, right?

So, these aren’t quite Halloween-y, but I figured a cityscape by night was at least seasonal! Next week I should have some real Halloween manis (assuming I have time to edit them between wedding planning!). I was going to do a whole how-to-DIY post on making wedding centerpieces out of fancy fake flowers and putting together a chuppah but I ran out of time for that as well. :-/. Anyway, happy Friday!

Blooms and Bars

Thus begins my somewhat Halloween-themed mani time! This one was actually painted months ago, but I think the colors lend themselves well to this season 😀

img_8612

This is a skittlette! I don’t do them very often, but a mani by badgirlnails caught my eye, and I knew I needed to make my own version! Maybe I should do them more frequently…getting to do three color-coordinated designs was actually quite fun!

img_3437

I do wish I hadn’t put the smattering of gold glitter beneath the flower on my accent nails, but I didn’t know that ahead of time. I thought simply coloring in a bit of the flower wouldn’t be glittery enough! Silly me.

Paintbrushes

See, for the theme of Day 27, artwork, I decided to go with things that work to make art…in this case paintbrushes. I have no idea if anyone other than me would ever be able to identify what they are without me telling them! Oops.

img_1836

To create the bristles I painted my nails a medium brown, and added a bristle-like stamp with a nude tone. I then dry-brushed on a bit of each of my intended colors to create an effect as though the paintbrushes had been previously used for the specific color.

img_1853

Then I added the blobs of color and a little white crescent to indicate that they were shiny. I decided to matte the ‘brush’ part and make the paint part ‘glossy’ just for fun!

So, do they look like paintbrushes? Did I succeed? 🙂

Laced In

A corset is totally fashion! So this counts as the “fashion” day in the 31 Day Challenge. I am so glad we are almost done, painting this much has been difficult!

img_1603

These nails went great…until I put down the striping tape. Which left a reside which would not come off. So when I top-coated, the whole thing got super bubbly! 😦 Hopefully you can’t really see it (I tried to pick pictures that didn’t focus on the bubbles!).

Stitch!

Have some animated-film nail art! I don’t actually know why I thought I’d be able to do Stitch’s face well…I am really really bad at drawing faces even on PAPER much less on NAILS. Oh well! Even if he looks like a little monster, it is still cute.

img_8673

This was inspired by tinas_polish, and her Stitch is ADORABLE. Unlike my demon-spawn (which is technically l accurate, but I was trying to go for cute).

img_3460

I think I have 1-2 more animated film manis ready to post after this Challenge is over! Soooo cloooose…lets see if I can make it through!

Water Wood Grain

For water marble day, I decided to do something a bit different! I wanted to see if I could water marble wood grain. It somewhat worked?

img_4320

I started with a new polish that I picked up earlier this month from the clearance rack at ULTA. I’ve been on the hunt for a slightly nude off-white. This is more nude/peachy than I wanted it, but is not quite a light pink! I also think it is indeed a bit lighter than my lightest nude (Chantal by Zoya) but I’ll need to do a direct comparison since I am currently out of swatching sticks!

img_1178

This polish is called I Nude It by Essense. It is my second essence polish and I had forgotten how much I love them. I used three thin coats but I could have gotten away with two. The polish self-leveled nicely, and the color is a beautiful pale peachy-nude with barely-there golden shimmer (you can see it in the bottle but not really on the nail). I like it!

img_1297

I then went and marbled with three other shades of brown/nude and my clear water marbling polish…which totally overwhelmed the browns. Whoops! So I added a little bit of free-hand brown at the end. I don’t know that I would have said these looked like wood without knowing what I was aiming for, but the definitely count as water marble so it works for the Day 20 of the 31 Day Challenge prompt!

Hope you enjoyed! We are finally just about 2/3 of the way done with this challenge. Lets see if I can make it to the end!

Purple Diamondante

The design can be summarized as “Eva has fun with purples and striping tape”. It also totally works for the Day 12 – Stripes prompt! Win-win.

img_3502

This mani cane about because I found a purple L’oreal polish on sale at Rite Aid, and I spent fully 5 minutes trying to figure out from memory if it would be perfectly between the two purple I currently own. I ended up buying it, and I am really glad I did! That also meant that I needed to use it with a bunch of other purple polishes I own, just to make sure the color fits.

img_3504

This is Paparazzi Pleaser by L’oreal. The polish is much more jelly-like than creme-like. It took three thin coats, which was fine, but was incredibly sheer on the first coat. I am actually quite happy with that, as I’ve been looking for some jelly polishes to use for lead lighting and I think this one might work! Interestingly, this purple (its a blue-toned purple rather than a pink-toned one) dries a full shade darker than it looks in the bottle. Go figure!
