Violet Beauregarde

Guerlain riviera006

Guerlain Riviera Terracotta Vernis ($22.00 for 0.38 fl. oz.) is described as a “powerful electric indigo blue with subtly metallic finish.” It’s a rich, blue-based purple with threads of lighter violet metallic shimmer. SpaRitual Blue Moon is deeper, bluer, and not metallic. Essie Smooth Sailing is lighter, more periwinkle. SpaRitual Illume has a jelly-like finish, no shimmer.

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.

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.

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.

Summer fun

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)

Space is Dark

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.

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.

Bar, hex and square glitters in lots of fun colors including turquoise, lavender, chartreuse and purple in a clear base.

Under the sea

Sea Creature is a mix of dark emerald micro glitter and medium blue holo hex glitters with a sprinkling of small violet glitter. I’ve seen a few random pieces of medium silver holo hexes as well in there, but they’re kinda rare. This is all in a clear base, but it covers almost completely in two coats on its own, or in one coat over a base color (shown here over Rescue Beauty Lounge Teal).

This is I Love Nail Polish Sirène. This teal-y chrome shifts to blue, violet and red. It’s even more amazing in person! My swatch is three coats.
