31 Day Challenge Stripes: Pastel Rainbow Awesomeness

Even though I feel behind on the 31 Day Challenge I’m still going to keep rocking it! Granted I was going to try and catch up and post a couple designs in one day but I wanna have fun with this and not just do a bunch of art real fast that I have to take off right away. My previous gradient I did really hit home on that fact as I took them off to do my polka dot nails when I finished taking photos. Yes yes the mario nails were awesome but I would have loved to rock the gradient I did just for at least a day. Also I like having a life now and then outside of nails and these design are taking a lot of creativity out of me!

With that said, stripes hmm stripes what shall I do for stripes? Well google stripes of course and get inspo from that and that is just what I did. There was this pastel rainbow image that just kept catching my eye so I figured why not take a shot at it. For some reason it took me like 30 minutes to figure out how to block it off on my nails HA! At least it came out super similar and pretty darn cute besides those bubbles in my topcoat, rawr. Those pops of black just totally make it.

The first step looked kinda cool with the negative space. Whew so much striping tape! I used 12 pieces for each nail! Yea, I’m not taking these off right away.

31DC2015 Day 11 Polka Dots: Mario Mushrooms

I’ve been hard at work getting caught up with this challenge so why not have two posts in one day?! I decided to take a little different approach for the polka dot prompt of the 31 day challenge and did a design that has been on my to-do list for some time! Mario mushrooms! I love Mario! I even named my dog Yoshi!

If you are a Mario freak like me then you know right away that these are the 1-Up and get bigger mushrooms in all of the Mario games, well they somewhat resemble them at least. Instead of using whiter I began with three coats of LVX ‘Rhone’ from the Fall 2015 collection which resemble the perfect skin tone color.

Illamasqua & Tillie Polish Chevrons

When in doubt chevron it out! That’s kinda what I told myself last night as I did this manicure. Wasn’t wanting to do a full on water marble but wanted to be kind of artsy still. Chevron’s are a great way to achieve want I wanted especially since I have these nice Nail Vinyl‘s to make it all super quick and easy. Who doesn’t love pink and gold, well really I like gold and any other color together its such a majestic shade and Tillie Polish’s ‘Golden Goddess‘ never disappoints.

I own three Illamasqua polishes and this is the first time I am using any of them. Now, I NEED THEM ALL! Amazing application, like amazing, and wonderful coverage in two thin coats. A while back I purchased a set of Throb & Spartan on eBay and the seller graciously surprised me with Obsess‘ since they knew these were my first Illamasqua’s to add to my collection. I was a pretty happy chica as this is one perfect hot pink creme and I had been waiting for valentines day to use because it’s so special.

This design isn’t too festive for the upcoming holiday but it works well for my sanity and like I said who doesn’t love pink and gold together?!

Thanks for reading!

Precision Nail Lacquer 60’s Retro Glam Nested Triangles

Provided For Review

My nail life has been so full of swatching lately, I feel my creative work has subsided in these past weeks. I was sitting there trying to think up of a way to use some Precision Nail Lacquers I got a few weeks back and I didn’t want to simply swatch these shades or even marble with them, I needed something new. Roaming around on Instagram and what do you know I see a lovely tutorial by Lacquertude for this nested triangle chevron look.  As I had just tried half this look with yesterdays post on Bsquared Lacquer’s Change the Game I felt confident enough to go the extra length with the added triangles. I used Precision Nail Lacquers Girls Just Wanna Have Fun (pink), Creme De La Creme (white), and Twist N’ Shout (orange). The black is of course Aenglands Camelot which was a great way to set off all the other colors. This took around 2 1/2 hours altogether with placing the tape and waiting as I didn’t want to risk it messing up. I used HKgirl topcoat in between each taping, it dried reasonably fast and only smeared one layer on one nail (accent white).

Here it is without the black as I liked both versions. This one isn’t as bold but these colors can’t not be bold as they are super neon. My camera just couldn’t handle all the brightness!

Bsquared Lacquer Change the Game

Saturdaaaaay and it feels so good! Been having a nice lazy saturday watching Doctor Who episodes leading up to the new one, oh how I love Netflix and Doctor Who.

As per my last post I had one last color to share with you from Bsquared Lacquer’s Instafamily Collection and it was definitely my favorite of the bunch. Change the Game is a scattered emerald holo which took two thin coats for opacity. Emerald is for sure my color for this years fall season and this one doesn’t disappoint. Took some inspiration from @cassondrafaye and @nailsofjessiek on instagram for this sleek chevron look using Tillie Polishes Golden Goddess. Gold and green, well really gold and any color is just banging together. Now for a little picture spam and a quick review on the Hkgirl topcoat I’ve been using lately.

Alright so I ended up wearing these nails for a whole TEN DAYS, yea I’ve been pretty busy, and as you can see below no chips at all occurred using Glisten & Glow’s Hkgirl topcoat. Of course there was a huge gap and that one chip near my cuticles on my ring finger was from me picking at my nails. After being in lab and taking multiple showers these nails still held up. Now yes my nails are nice and strong on this hand so the chipping already is lowered but seriously people. Hkgirl is really impressing me lately. Already went through a whole bottle and I’m on my second. I wouldn’t say this is the most throughout review of this product but I wanted to share my findings with you guys.

This color will be restocked on Nov. 30th at Bsquared Lacquer’s site HERE.
