Dior St. Tropez is a light greenish, aqua blue creme and was opaque in two easy, creamy coats. Typical Dior formula perfection.

I was disappointed. The shimmer doesn’t show up at all to the naked eye once on the nail. And let’s face it. It’s pretty much an exact dupe of China Glaze For Audrey…. :( This is 2 coats

Peacock-Inspired Marble

For this marble, I used my new blog design as inspiration. First, I picked out three colours that match the peacock feathers (China Glaze Grape Pop, Zoya Robyn and China Glaze Custom Kicks) and then I did my marble. But when I was done, I thought it was missing something. So, I added some white dots to tie in the white from my blog as well, and I think that really completed the look.

For this epic look I started with Two easy coats of Bettina Onyx. Then…. Then I went to town splattering in Bettina colors. I used some of their amazing Disco Collection glassflecks and ended up with amazing results. For the splatter I used Boogie, Peace and Hot Pants. I cannot get this look out of my head because I had never seen a splatter create an effect such as this before. This was NOT fun to clean up because the super fine shimmer from the Disco Colors wanted to get everywhere. I don’t even care though.. The clean-up was so worth it in the end!

Sneeze Breeze Sponged tip...

For this mani, I painted my nails with Deborah Milano 837 which I got in a swap from my lovely friend Maki from Candy Glaze.  I then sponged Sneeze Breeze onto the tips and most of the way down the nails.

Striped Caviar Manicure

I started out with my base coat (Cult Nails Get It On) then used 1 coat of OPI’s Thanks A Windmillion, which I then dry completely. Next, one nail at a time, I did a diagonal stripe with a 2nd coat of my polish and immediately dipped that nail into my desired micro-bead color. I repositioned any stray beads with a rubber cuticle pusher and then gently pressed the beads down into the still semi-wet polish to secure them. I repeated this step for each nail.

Nail-Venturous Floam is an amazing polish! It’s made up of a super dense concentration of green and blue glitter, with a clear suspension base. It was actually a bit too thick on my first coat so I added a few drops of thinner and the application was a breeze after that. I used 3 coats for full coverage, although most people would be fine with 2 coats. As will all glitters, removal is a pain in the ass. And expect to find stray blue and green glitter EVERYWHERE for the next few days.

Today I have two amazing polishes from Dandy Nails on Etsy! This is two coats of Dandy Nails Parallel Universe with one coat of top coat. My photo doesn’t show the duo color as much as I would like, but this is a pretty aqua/lavender duo chrome polish! You can see the hint of lavender on the outer edges of my nails! It went on flawlessly.

Rainbow In The Air

I’m SO excited about today’s nails. I wanted to do some kind of rainbow nail art for ages and now I finally did it, yay! My first attempt was a mess, so I took it off and started again. Believe me if I say that this requires patience and a super steady hand. Oh, and it’s FUN to do!

Blue Skies Smiling At Me

I used a silver LA Colors polish and the Blue Years Eve to make double dots.    This pics don’t show it very well but the LA Colors and Blue Years Eve are both really glittery and gorgeous.  They go really well together.  What do you think?

Electric Cinder

This color is so amazing and so is the photograph!

I choose Orly Rock Candy to pair with OM’s “Cinder” pigment. Cinder is a dark smoky black with teeny tiny purple glitter flecks. This was actually the second franken I made with Cinder…the first being a FAIL. Not a huge fail, but still not what I wanted, and these pigments are so darn pretty they deserve nothing less than a 100% effort on my part! Rock Candy was a wise choice, and I only needed about a teaspoon of Cinder pigment.
