I started with a base of Two effortless coats of Sation’s Bump in Beige, which is my perfect mannequin hands “crelly”(jelly-creme). Then I applied Two easy coats of One and only Orange by Sation. This is a NEON Tangerine Orange. I’ve been craving neons lately so this color could not have come in at a better time. My camera was all “DO NOT WANT!” lool I’m sure you guys get the picture. This is BRIGHT! On my ring finger nail I did a gradient using Sammy’s tutorial using OAOO and Sation’s Fan the Flames Fuchsia. Don’t worry, I will have swatches of all these Sation colors soon. I topped my ring fingers off with a coat of INM Northern Lights. On the rest of my nails I did a topper of Windestine’s Asbestos which is a White micro glitter in a clear base.

The season

20141026 lacquer legion halloween 33

My base polishes are the two shades in the Morgan Taylor Halloween Collection. The set includes Little Black Dress (a great black!) and a crazy bright orange called Orange Crush. I used a fine art brush to create the jack-o-lanterns, skulls, spiders and bats and teeny dotting tools to make the dots.

I also introduced a new light source and used a different lens for these pics. Why? Because I’m never satisfied and always tinkering with my setup. I’m not sure if I like it. We’ll see!

Anyway, the polishes I used in this look are:

 Super Black 3rd Degree 1

Hello polished friends and happy Saturday!  I have four polishes from a new-to-me indie brand to share today: Super Black Handmade Lacquers.  First off, I was super impressed by the packaging and presentation…such a great look!  Plus, the polishes are great!

First up is Super Black 3rd Degree, a shimmering golden orange-red.  This is two easy coats.  I’m seeing lots of orange-reds like this for the holidays and winter, and I’m loving it.  I think this will work on more skin tones than a traditional red-red!

Now onto today’s post… I finally filmed a nail art tutorial!! O: I know, it’s been way too long! I’ve really been into yin-yang nail art lately and it’s such an easy design I figured I’d put my little twist on it and share with you all how I did it, I hope you like it!

To get this look: I used OPI My Vampire is Buff, OPI My Paprika is Hotter than Yours!, and China Glaze Sea Spray. I also used Cult Nails Tempest and Fetish. Everything was done freehand, and for the blocks of colour, I painted them with Tempest to begin with, then went over them with the colour.

Overall: I really love how spunky and fun this is! It’s not too often I use orange, but I love the colour combination with the blue-orange complements, and the nice buff nude to balance. I’m also really happy with my line work on this one.

Super Black Lacquers 3rd Degree is a rich, blood-orange with a golden shimmer and an almost metallic finish. Application was amazing with this polish. Does that ever happen to you? Where you use a polish and you think “Wow. This is dreamy.” LOL. Well that happened with this one.

I decided to go big or go home, so I combined all eight shades into this mani. I did a similar look here, but used striping tape. This time I got brave and freehanded the stripes with a striping brush. I started with a base of Spirit Walker, a pinkish off-white with a touch of shimmer. Then I randomly added funky stripes to create this Wild West themed mani. The colors in the collection are (L to R in the pic above): Take off the Mask, Hi-Ho Silver, Paint Pony, Spirit Walker, Brothel, Texas Sky, Cactus, and Go Native.  I finished with two coats of Nubar Diamond Seal & Shine topcoat to make it smooth and shiny.

Fendi-inspired

Fendi 4

Ombré hair just recently had it’s moment (I just can’t seem to part with my ombréd dark blue locks), but has ombréd nails? I think not. This Fendi-inspired Ladyfinger is definitely a challenge, but the end result is totally worth it.
