I can’t get enough of this look…I felt there were flashing neon lights lining my nails!  I had just filed and shaped my nails, and the “frames” helped show off my new shorter square nails!

Purple Metallic Stamping

The Klean Colors Metallic polishes are really fantastic for stamping.  If you like to stamp then you NEED these polishes, just sayin’.

At the plate this evening, Layla Hologram Effect 08 Flash Black. I almost always layer my holos over a base color to save on polish, well to save on the holo polish that is. I layered this one over a plain creme black and WOW does it ever POP!

Glitter Sponging

Day08 01

I used A-England Bridal Veil – a black scattered holographic – as a base and sponged Girly Bits Into The Night – holographic glitter in a black jelly base – on to the tips!

Twenty Ten is small square red glitter, microfine and small blue hex glitter in a sheer black base. This color was one of my first ever made, it has had a few versions over the last couple of years and I am quite happy with this final one.

The base is a very sheer black so you will need 3 coats for a squishy look, or apply 1 coat over a black base color for a more solid dark black look.

Katniss, Girl on Fire

After re-reading the Hunger Games in the last couple of days, I was reminded that Katniss herself had her nails done for the interview directly preceding the beginning of the Games. In the book, Katniss says Cinna’s team decorates her by “painting flame designs on [her] twenty perfect nails.” So of course, I had to do a flame design.

Black and White with Glit...

Day07 02

I used W7 Cosmic Black – a black jelly packed with Silver glitter – as a base. Then I took a sponge and used it to apply W7 Cosmic Mauve from the tips. Then I added some Wet n Wild White to the mix but because it’s not very opaque, it gave it a milky look. Finally I used a little more Cosmic Mauve right on the tips and used about 3 coats of NYC Top Coat to smooth things over!

Wow. Just wow.

Next up is the first color from the Fall Chic collection and my favorite of the bunch, Midnight Rainbow. This black jelly is packed with holographic and metallic circle glitters of multiple sizes, and a whole rainbow of flecks and glitters. It’s gorgeous! Shown above is three coats, but you can layer one coat over black if you want a less intense effect. This polish, like the others, required topcoat to smooth it.

 

Floral Glitter

Hey everyone! It’s been a couple of weeks since the last tutorial tuesday, and you’ve been missing it a tonne, I’m sure. This week’s tutorial is another one where you’ll have to head over to Divine Caroline to see the steps for this glitter floral design. If you would prefer to stick to the original colours of the dress in the article then go ahead, you definitely dont have to follow the same colour scheme I did.

It doesn’t have the most imaginative name but it pretty much sums up the polish, a gorgeous black with fine holographic glitter. In the photos I applied two coats but because the formula is pretty thick and opaque you could get way with one coat.
