31DC2015 Day 10: Sunset Gradient w/ Uberchic Stamping

Yes yes I know, I’m technically behind on the 31 day challenge as today is supposed to be stripes! But hey that means I only have this and two more designs to get all caught up with! I am determined to stay on track. I gotta say I wasn’t looking forward to the gradient prompt as its a technique that I’ve only tried a few times, but they turned out better then I thought they would be. Wasn’t sure what color combo I wanted to do until I was came upon a design done by Sarah of Chalkboard Nails. Everything she does is pure perfection.

I used my new Uberchic Beauty mat, which I’m slowly falling inlove with, to combine the colors and then picked them up with a latex-free makeup sponge which I think helps prevent them from soaking into it. Also I feel like having the darker color on the tips gives it a nicer effect. I used OPI’s ‘A Oui Bit of Red’ for the middle color but it came out a little pink but I likes it. Stamping and top coating a gradient changes the whole game, it looks 10x better!

31 Day Challenge: Red Love Themed Nails

Alright folks, things are about to get super serious up in this piece. The 31 Day Challenge for nail art is upon us and I’ve decided to take a swing at it. If you have no clue what I’m referring to check out Chalkboard Nails post HERE. She has taken on the challenge for the past five, thats right five years, and seeing how far she has come is so inspiring. Now believe it or not I personally am not very artsy or good with a paint brush so I hopefully I’ll be able to overcome this.

For the first few days the challenge runs they the rainbow starting with red of course. I tried my luck at some sort of marble design but my bolts were too rusty so I ended up with this love themed design. Sometimes after I finish my nails when I had a hard time figuring out what to do, I get this feeling of, “oh man these aren’t good”, and of course thats not a good feeling. Then after I edit the pictures and start writing I realize that my art and what I’ve done is better then I think. I just need to start giving myself more credit and I know with these next few weeks I will be able to!

Join in on the fun even if you just do a few prompts its great fun to do the same themed nails as many other artist’s in the community! I’m excited to get motivated and see everyones art! WOOTOTHEFREAKINGHOO!

LVX Spring 2015 Camo w/ Moyou Stamping

Yesterday I had a bit of a episode and got super depressed for a few hours. I call it my young-life crisis moments. Being 23 and not knowing exactly where you heading in life, well being any age and not knowing can bring about some real serious stress. So of course I had to have a nice long convo with my mama and all was well after that. Sometimes venting is the best cure for stress. This past weekend I found out that my foot wasn’t broken, got my hair recolored and was featured in Nail It! Magazine twice! I kinda feel like Norma from OITNB blessed me with her healing powers (sorry for all those that don’t watch this show) and now things are falling into place. I have to keep telling myself all is as it should be, all is as it should be.

Well enough personal stuff lets get into something that has also been way overdue and that is LVX’s Spring 2015 collection. You may have seen me post about them before as they are one of my favorite brands from the vast array of beautiful colors to the constantly impressive formulas, they never cease to amaze me, and they are 5-free! Thats why ‘Camo’ swatched below gets it very own post, it’s that extraordinary. The blueish green shimmer in this beauty really makes it a unique shade. The brushes LVX has result in some of the fullest coverage I’ve experienced, Camo took two easy coats for full opacity.

I could have done much more with this shade but I decided to keep it simple with this MoYou London stamping design from Fashionista Plate (04) using Cult Nails ‘Time Traveler’. Lets all just have a moment of silence for the retirement of Cult Nails. Anywho I’m seeing some advanced stamping with this plate in my near future for sure I love the dimensions it holds.

I liked this picture too much not to share it with you all. Ring is from So Nailicious Boutique and its pretty much badass with this pose. Enjoy!

I have three more colors from LVX’s Spring 2015 collection to share with you all as well as their Summer 2015 collection which all work great for water marbling as you will soon see!

I’m working on an update post about what’s been going on with me but I wanted to go ahead and start sharing the art I’ve been working on. I have a plethora of polishes and products to be reviewed that I’ve been holding back on for quite some time, so get ready for lots of mucking awesome reviews and art in the coming weeks!

Hmmm yeaaaaa mermaid holo spectacularness up in this piece! A long time ago the wonderful Annie of Cirque Colors got in contact with me about reviewing some products of hers. I of course was super super excited and mentioned to her that I had been wanting to grab her Heritage collection for some time as they were such perfect holographic shades. When I received my first package I was surprised with these two beauties which I have been urning to use ever since!

Cirque Colors Holo Mermaid

I had tons of fun with this manicure using Xochitl (Orchid holo) and Cerrillos (turquoise holo) both of which have amazing formulas and colors to them. I did a little stamping and a little stenciling with a little bit of treasure at the bottom of the sea cuz every mermaid needs some gold goodies in their life’s.

Cirque Colors Holo Mermaid

I received a bunch I mean a bunch of stencils from What’s Up Nails to share with you all and this mermaid scale one was just calling my name. From first impression they seem to work great!

Various Nail Art using Tillie Polish Glamorous Collection

Provided For review

To continue on from yesterday’s post I have some various nail art to share with you using Tillie Polishes Glamorous collection!

A while back the ever so lovely Gaby of @Lacquerloon sent me a little package and included in it was this pack of Pueen nail stickers. At first glance these stickers looked kind of like a water marble. I figured applying them to the tip of the nail sort of like a french manicure would give the most unique effect. I wasn’t sure what to expect but they need up looking great over Tillie Polishes Royals It was a great base to compliment the colors in the stickers as they varied from gold to purple and purple to orange.

I created this bee themed skittle design using Tillie Polishes Posh as a base and some of Serum No. 5’s Queen Bee Nail Vinyls. This was quite the random manicure but it all goes together nicely with the accented water marble. I also used Tillie’s Glam Squad on my pinky

IMG_4592

Heres a super simple manicure I did using Ethereal as my base stamped with Cirque Colors Memento Mori and a design from MoYou London Suki Plate 05. I never really thought of black and nude together but I instantly fell in love when I did the first nail. This was a great manicure to wear out to dinner with my friends the other night. Chic yet still eye-catching due to the elaborate design.

IMG_4590

This half moon design, which happens to be my first of its kind, was my favorite manicure I did using this collection. I immediately envisioned this design when I saw these colors, possibly most likely to the fact that the half moon nail vinyls were sitting out on my desk but thats not the point. I started with a base of Royals and topped it off with Queen Bee and I’ve got to say these colors go quite well together.

IMG_4593

I was going to stop there but something else was sitting out on my nail desk, my little box of gems. These green triangle studs from She Sells Seashells had been screaming at me that they wanted to be used for quite some time now. Now the impressive thing about this manicure is not only that its incredibly awesome, ah why thank you, but the fact that I’ve been wearing it for 10 days now and the gems are all still on.

IMG_4594

Do you see this craziness?! I mean a whole 10 tens and no visible chips it practically looks fresh besides my extreme amount of growth. This is all thanks to Cirque Colors new Liquid Laminate Top Coat from their Back to Basics collection. After all the dishes I’ve done, all the showers I’ve taken and all the other crazy things my hands have been thru these gems have stayed intact and I am quite ecstatic. I didn’t use any glue to keep them in place only a drop of this top coat. I’l have a more thorough review of this in the coming weeks but as of now I say its a winner!

Serum No. 5 Neon GITD Review w/ Pueen Stamping

Provided For Review

Ah its feeling so great to have my mojo back! Today I have a bright and fun post to share with you consisting of three Serum No. 5 Glow in the dark Neons paired along with some fun Pueen Stamping using their new Encore plates which I love! With these neons I decided to use a white base to help them pop out a little more resulting in only needing one coat. They did also show full opacity in 2-3 coats.

I Gleam in Pink is an eye searing pink neon cream that glows and orangey-pink in the dark. This one had the least glow effect of the three I tried but under the black light it looked banging. This also had a textured finish due to the glow pigment but with topcoat it smoothed out nicely.

Serum No. 5 I Gleam In Pink GITD

Black and white were really the only colors that stood out nicely as a stamp on this bright color so I went with some black hearts using Cult Nails Nevermore and Pueen SE02A.

IMG_2812

Serum No. 5 I Gleam In Pink

Solar Power is a yellow neon cream that glows lime green in the dark. The glow effect was very bright and was probably my favorite for this reason. Using this color over white helped with the application as yellows can be streaky at times.

Serum No. 5 Solar Power GITD

I used Rescue Beautys ‘Become One’ and Pueen SE03B for a sort of lemon lime type of feel. This is the manicure I ended with and am still wearing right now!

IMG_2818

Serum No. 5 Solar Power

Orange You Sunny is another eye-searing color with a nice orangey glow to it in the dark. It glows a little brighter then what I was able to capture. Pair this with the other two colors and you’d have a perfect summer mani!

Serum No. 5 Orange you Sunny GITD

I wasn’t feeling most of the colors I tried to use over this shade so I settled with Cult Nails ‘Love at First Sight’ and some nice flowers from Pueen SE02A. I really loved the look of this under the black light!

IMG_2806

Serum No. 5 Orange you Sunny

All in all I was impressed with these colors and their glow effect. Serum No. 5 does it once again with their GITD polishes! I love my growing collection of creams from them!

Serum No. 5 Neon Stamping

You can find all these Serum No. 5 colors on their site HERE. Check them out on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for updates on new colors, sales and giveaways!

I’ll have more reviews including products from LVX, Go Starch It, Pipe Dream Polish and Cirque Colors so be on the lookout for those posts!
