I can’t even believe I am typing right now! Oh goodness I am one tired lady. School is totally kicking in gear, first test are next week, my AMSA presidency is rolling on, its just craziness! I had to stop, think, and then tell myself, “Okay Corynn I think it’s just about time to do your mucking nails!” But enough jibber jabber, lets get into some really excting and cool I felt like this when I was done…
I am just so happy with the outcome of this manicure using some AMAZING polishes from Lacquer Lust new Birthstone collection If you haven’t checked out her it out you really must. There are so many beauties and they all have great formulas and application. I was fortunate enough to receive a whole set to share with you all. You may have seen a few swatches and one marble with these on my Instagram but this has got to be the top dog of what I have done with them so far. Funny thing is my first ever indies were from Lacquer Lust. Last December I came accross Jo’s brand and instantly fell inlove with her holograhpic hash tag collection which consisted of six bright and awesome holo shades. I was just all too excited when I heard about this new holo collection from her. Not only did I know that they would be filled with tons and tons of spectrafalir but that they would also be good for water marbling! Using a base of Cult Nails Tempest I then used Peridot, Pink Tourmaline, Topaz, Zircon and Tanzanite for the water marble which ended up coming out super random, but kinda of uniformed, something I love about marbling. I then topped it off with the topcoat I’ve been currently using, Glisten & Glow HKgirl. I’m totally and utterly inlove.
Wanted to show some macros of this manicure its just too banging. Indoor on the left in indirect light and then outside in the morning sun.
Tried out a new method since I haven’t been having too much luck with my lightbox. The below photo was taken in a plastic bag! I’ve seen some other girls do this such as Strawbrie and thepolishedokie. It helps diffuse the light really well and gives you an indirect lighting effect.
This photo was taken in direct light under the usual LED lamp that I use. Here you can start to see how holo this manicure really is, but of course no photo could really show you the true effect of these pretties, at least on the cameras I have.
And lastly here is a photo out in the morning sun. I took this on my way to class this morning which was like the only time that the sun was shining and I had time to take a picture. Haa oh good ole school dayzzz! But just look at all the holo! Its not as intense as it would be if the shades where on their own, since marbling creates a very thin line on the surface of the water, but dayummm.
Wait whats this?! Corynn has a right hand??? NO WAY! Finally my Cinderella lover can come out of hiding. Both my hands are pretty much at the same length now that I had my breakage, its kinda nice. I suppose this is the first manicure I will be posting on here with my new nubbins! Gotta love your nails no matter what size! Pictured from B-T: Topaz (3 coats), Peridot (2), Pink Tourmaline (1), Zircon (3) and Tanzanite (1). All had great application!
Lacquer Lust has decided to make these PERMANENT shades in her store, great idea if I may so. The official release is this Monday September the 17th. Make sure to check out Lacquer Lusts Instagram and Facebook pages for the time and other goodies!
Oh and just because I love you guys and you made it this far…
