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!

O’hara by piCture pOlish with Flag Accent

So glad I was able to do a couple water marbles and tutorials in time for the holiday. This month has been so full of swatches, not like that’s a bad thing! July should be the same way, half way through my piCture pOlish shades I have for you guys and lots of other goodies coming your way!

This time for my weekly piCture pOlish review I decided to go with O’hara! This beautiful bright red crelly filled with awesome holographic shimmeriness is my favorite I’ve tried yet! Hard to capture all the shimmer in a photo. I used two perfectly applied coats on its own and topped it with my seche vite top coat. LOVE!

Browsing on instagram last night as I started my manicure, I came upon a little video made by the ladies over at knailart for the design on my ring finger. A simple flag design using some nail tape!  I used piCture pOlish’s Bombshell for the blue sqaure and put some of Polishedbykpt’s Discoball on top to act as the stars. Using Aengland’s Excalibur overtop of my last striped water marble to create an abstract flag design. When I showed this to my man he was so impressed by the complexity of it! Sort of like a flag but it made him question. Check out knailart’s  instagram page HERE on how to do it for yourself!

Laquerlicious- 4th of July Collection Review

Sitting out on my mom’s porch listening to the hummingbirds buzz by as they fight for the feeders. This is the time of year when all the little babies are born and it is just so amazing to watch them up here in the mountains. What a perfect time to write up a post.

For those who celebrate, are you guys getting ready for 4th of July?! Well I’m feeling it over here with Laquerlicious’s beautiful 4th of July collection! Consisting of five perfect shades for the upcoming holiday. Two glitter toppers, two bases and one base/glitter topper all with perfect application.

Numero uno in this set is Fireworks & Freedom, a mix of blue and red sqaure, bar, big and small hex glitter as well as tiny little micro glitters all filled up in a faint red semi clear base.

I used one perfectly applicated layer of Fireworks & Freedom over top of Aengland’s Excalibur and Fnug’s Aviator on my accent nail. Here’s a closeup of this beauty, probably my 3rd favorite of them all.

Now we have Patriotic parade, which can be worn by itself or over top of another polish. I am sure this would look great over black! I decided to use Aengland’s Excalibur again since it almost matched the color of all the beautiful sliver holo glitters in this polish. One coat with Seche vite and I was good to go.

IMG_1638

In Patriotic Parade’s shimmery base you will find red, blue and silver medium hex glitters along with lots of mirco bar and hex holo glitters. See all the rainbowy holo in this Parade of a polish?! I saw someone else using this beauty and knew it needed to be in my collection. I’m really loving the shimmery base and the fact that it can be worn alone. This is my 2nd favorite because of this diversity.

Next I decided to use both of the base polishes of this set in one manicure. The 4th of July is always about those gorgeous blue and red shades out there. On my outter fingers I am wearing America’s Birthday and in the middle Rockets Red Glare. I used two coats of each along with one coat of Seche Vite topcoat for a perfect finish. These polishes are like the opposite of one another but very similar.

IMG_1637

America’s Birthday, sort of a denim like blue is filled with blue mirco glitters along with some red and sliver mirco glitters while Rocket’s Red Glare is filled with lots of red micro glitters and some blue and silver mirco glitters. I wanted to see what these pretties would look like in a matte finish so I used one coat of my Julep matte coat. With or without top coat I loved both of these polishes. Two coats is what I’m looking for in my full coverage base glitters.

IMG_1636

For the last of this awesome 4th of July collection my favorite, Celebrate Red, White & Blue. Not sure if this was my favorite because of what I did with it or because I am just a glitter whore. I used one coat over top of Zoya’s America, Aengland’s Excalibur and Zoya’s Robin. Using the Zoya colors for the water marble accent to help this whole manicure pop.

IMG_1640

Celebrate Red, White & Blue has red and blue, large/small sqaure, hex and bar glitters along with blue and red star and micro  glitters all in a clear base. Talk about a celebration! Since I just can’t get enough glitter these days here’s a close up over top of Excalibur.

All in all I am impressed with the diversity of this collection as well as the application. Laquerlicious was one of the first indie brands I purchased from when I started my collection and I am always floored by the combinations and colors of her creations, not to mention they are all 3-free as well! Another thing I like about this brand is that they are always readily available so you can enjoy your shopping and not have to refresh every second to make sure you get your colors!
