31DC2015 Day 9 Rainbow: Classic Petal Water Marble

Darn my darndid iMovie slowing down my whole computer! Okay granted I have been on it for quite awhile and its getting a little hot hmm maybe I should give it a break? Nah! I need to get this manicure out to you guys I’m sure my computer will understand! I’ll have the video tutorial for this up when my iMovie wants to cooperate with me.

Are there really any words that I need to say to explain how much awesome sauce this manicure posses?! When Pipe Dream Polishes hit the market last year they floored everyone with their fantastical neon hues and impeccable water marbling formulas. Their neon colors have gained so much hype that they’ve become so hard to get! The demand exceed the restocks and it is just insane in the membrane! On a nicer note once you have these in your hands you have a feeling of not only excitement but pure joy. Neons that water marble are like liquid gold in my book.

It was inevitable that I do a rainbow water marble using the Street Carnival collection from Pipe Dream Polish for todays 31 day challenge prompt. Rainbow is after all my favorite color. I could stare at my nails until I went blind I love these so much! The saddest part about this manicure is that I need to take it off to do the next prompt. Wahh I don’t wanna go to school mom! I mean I don’t wanna take these nails off! Wahhh!

Alright enough crying you crazy rainbow lady. Around this time lat year I posted my first YouTube tutorial using Pipe Dream Polishes Night In Vegas collection which has since then skyrocketed in views! So that was another reason I had to use these polishes!

31DC2015 Day 8 Metallic: Nail Foil Fun

Mmmk it’s official folks! I’m mucking in love with nail foil! I’ve used it once before but using it for todays Metallic prompt of the 31 day challenge is a whole different story. First off I only have one roll of foils but thankfully its five different colors, if only it had blue then this would be a true foiled rainbow, but hey I think it looks great anyway!

I used a base of Aengland ‘Camelot to help the foil really stand out and I had some foil glue which helped with application SOOOO MUCH! No wonder they call it foil glue. HA! Both the glue and this roll of foil was give to me a long time ago by one of my very favorite people, Jo of Lacquer Lust. Thanks to her for me being able to create this manicure! I was thinking about stamping overtop of it but I didn’t even attempt that I’m too much in love with the outcome on its own. For reals people I need all the foils out there, like gimme em all!

31DC2015 Day 5 Blue: Cirque Colors Water Marble

So I may be cheating a little bit today with the 31 day challenge. You see I did this manicure some time ago and never got around to posting anything. It’s not like it was a fail or anything I super duper lurve this manicure. I do feel very embarrassed though when I write to you that I’ve had these polishes to review since March… *slaps self on wrist* yea I deserve that and more. But we just gotta look on the positive side of things, I’m sharing them with you now and they are still in stock, woohoo!

What are these polishes you say? Well they are from none other then Annie of Cirque Colors a NYC based indie brand that constantly creates beautiful lacquers. I was so surprised to see ‘Hudson‘ and ‘Lady Liberty‘, part of the monthly Metropolis collection, water marble because I’ve tried with some of their other creams and didn’t have success. But I’ve recently been seeing more and more marbles using them so thats a plus in my book. Gotta get me more Cirque Colors like sooooon! You can to yourself as they are currently having a giveaway for the whole Metropolis collection, which is 16 polishes! All you have to do is subscribe to Cirque Colors newsletter on their site HERE. Two winners will be chosen so you have a good chance!

You may have noticed my temp tats that I added to go along with this manicure. At first I was trying to figure out the best placement and what I wanted to use from the samples Hot Jewels sent me. Its awesome how these are just like the temp tats I used when I was a younging. I forgot exactly which set of them I used but I remember having the Peace/love collection. I have a bunch more to use and also have a few to giveaway so be on the lookout for that if you wanna win yourself some temp tats! They sell these in many stores such as Wal-mart and target so don’t worry if you miss the giveaway I’m sure you can find em for yourself!

One more thing I got for review many moons ago and haven’t gotten to till now is this monthly perfume subscription from Scentbird. They offer over 350 different perfumes to chosse from, I went with Burberry Summer and absolutely loved it. Not only did I love the smell but I loved the way they sent it. This little perfume bottle twists to reveal the spray nozzle and twists back to hide it. How cute?! Or is it just me? I really like this service because it can sometimes be so overwhelming choosing a perfume. Plus this lasted me a good month or so! I’d say it’s a great deal for $14.95 a month.

31DC2015 Day 4 Green: Water Marbled Leaves!

Umm people, is this really my blog? Are those really my fingers? I’m not sure if its mucking humanly possible to have posted on my blog for four days in a row and made two tutorials along with those posts?! I simply can’t believe my eyes. On top of all that I’ve gone and the unthinkable and did some water marbling and advanced stamping TOGETHER! Tedious work at times yes but I like the outcome.

Okay so bear with me folks this is the first time I’ve done a full on advanced stamping manicure and only my second time trying the technique. The tips got a little rusty and I fudged up the pinky but by the middle finger I got the hang of things and figured out my process. At first I was like hmm maybe I’ll do some like marbleized grass but then I was thinking hmm how can I make it even better…… STAMPING! I think the next time I do this the outcome will be much neater. But I have left perfection behind and am having fun with it all!

Tutorial: LVX Spring 15′ Classy Retro Water Marble

Im not sure what it is about getting back into the groove of things but for some reason I’m having a real hard time with getting motivated to do pretty much anything. Dam this horrible depression and rut that I am experiencing! It’s my own darn fault and I just need to put my big girl panties on and deal with it!

I still have a bunch of designs that I did over two months ago that I still need to share with you all and its not like they are bad or anything I’ve just kept brushing it off, always getting defeated. But not today, NO! Today I will be sharing this loverly manicure using, as you may know, one of my favorite brands, LVX. Not only are their lacquers vegan and cruelty free they are inspired by fashion and always have perfect formulas, not to mention they marble wonderfully.

IMG_0690

The colors I used for this design are from LVX’s Spring 2015 collection (I know I’m far behind) and like always are beautifully crafted together. Each one of these colors has a similar shimmery finish to them. Noir is a blackish grey shimmer to it while Haze is a lovely lilac hue. But both of these colors have a tinge of grey to them. I used Fuchsia along with these two other muted colors to help it really pop. I’m loving this unconventional color combo.  IMG_0691

And with all the kittens in my life right meow I tend to take photos with them and my nails, so yeaaaaaaa. HA! This little guy was from the last litter, he was the sweetest deaf kitty, always curling up next to me. His bright white color was a nice background for this design.

See the tutorial for this design below!

You can find Noir, Haze and Fushcia on LVX’s Shop along with the rest of the Spring 2015 collection and many other amazing colors.

4th of July Water Marble Nail Art TUTORIAL

I’m back from my family trip to Costa Rica and I couldn’t feel better! What a beautiful country and place to spend two wholes weeks in! It was a great bonding and learning experience for me! I have soooo many great photos of wildlife and I’ve been thinking hmm maybe I’ll do some nail art to match. Yea, how about a string of Costa Rican wildlife themed nail art woohoo for good ideas!

Speaking of good ideas here’s one I had before I even left for my trip. It’s funny because I did this design in the beginning of June but I somehow didn’t get it edited and out until nowwww, the first week of July so yea ya know I hope it still helps some people and you enjoy it! Using a wonderful semi-new product from April of Pipe Dream Polish I was able to achieve these crisp clean lines of red, white and blue. Clearwater is a clear coat of polish, not a base or a topcoat, just a clear polish with the intention of water marbling with. Hence the middle finger with the sparkliness which is Pipe Dream Polishes ‘Cha-Ching’ overtop of Aenglands ‘Excalibur Renaissance’ as this thick glitter was easier to apply and take off with this silver base.

Photo Jul 09-2

I of course tested out which colors to use before putting them on my nail and OPI’s ‘Eurso… Euro’ and ‘Red Hot Rio’ took the cake. My white base is the ever faithful ‘Carpe Diem’  from Cirque colors, I’m already on my second bottle.

And yay for nice clean photos (although this photo is blurry but hey its artistic) as I’ve been using my moms really nice camera which is super fancy canon DSLR . Sadly I know how to use it better then her and now all she wants is a simple point and shoot haaaa oh mom. Well thats good for me I have a new camera!!! Muahahah!Photo Jul 09-3
