Russian Opulence (Jewel E...

These nails kind of came together without any plan.. I just kept adding elements until they looked finished to me. When all was said and done, they had kind of a Russian opulence feel to them, all sparkly and covered in rhinestones.

Ponies!

The Hungry Asian Pony is inspired by my sister-in-law, Olivia. She loves purple, so Pony is packed with royal purple, lilac and a hint of black and magenta medium hex glitter in a subtle shimmering base.

Overall Jitterbug is a really awesome colour. It’s sort of a neutral and a crazy colour hybrid due to the grey shade but the crazy glitter! It’s also a good polish to wear when you can’t be bothered redoing your nails a lot because you can’t really tell if it’s got scuff marks and small chips. I’ll definitely be painting my nails this colour a lot!

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’.

Peacock-Inspired Marble

Peacockmarble1wm

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.

Color on Black

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.

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!

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.

I love Zoya.  And I love when they have sales with free shipping, haha!  I picked up Zoya LC when they had their Valentine’s Day Sale along with Ivanka and Charla!  I’m waiting to see if they have another Earth Day Promotion, it was awesome last year!

Bubble Yummy is a strikingly beautiful semi-sheer purple base with a mixture of glitter… silver and purple fine glitter and bright blue hologram medium hex glitter. This polish combination is absolutely stunning on. It’s bright and very fun…it definitely attracts attention! It looks great over other colors (see the swatches up above) or alone with 2 to 3 coats of polish. This polish has a smooth finish after applying a top coat. Please apply a thick top coat to seal in the glitter and allow for a smooth finish! Happy Polishing!!! :0)
