Renaissance Custom Lacquer Rosie Osie Swatch 5

Renaissance Cosmetics Rosie-Osie is a deep red jelly with intense red shimmer and tiny silver and gold glitter that looks incredible when suspended in the red base. It truly does have that lit-from-within look. Application was really smooth and even, and the consistency is just right – not too thin or thick. This was two coats. I did use a coat of Gelous followed by top coat, to give it more of a glassy look, but this is completely optional.

Ob d63f06 opi dotticure over wharf wharf wharf 2

I’ve applied two coats of OPI Wharf! Wharf! Wharf! from the San Francisco collection. Then I’ve used OPI Pussy Galore for the pink dots. It took a while to dry because I couldn’t use topcoat but then the manicure lasted for four days without chipping.

Alright, so my lines totally suck. I admit it! I have never really used a striper brush for nail art, and I had basically no control over it while I painted this manicure. But I think it’s a good first attempt, and now I can look back and laugh at this post once I finally master the waterfall nail art! I used a base of Essie Sand Tropez and striped with the following colors, from darkest to lightest: ORLY Bus Stop Crimson, China Glaze Long Kiss, OPI All I Want For Christmas Is OPI, OPI Schnapps Out Of It!, and Nubar Gold Frost nail art pen.

Drip ice cream sugar spun nails 1b

I wanted something cute today because it’s sort of grey here in Miami. And it’s also a little chilly – so what’s more fun than some cute ice cream nails?! I really like this melted ice cream tutorial because it’s super adorbs and because it taught me an interesting way to do drips – drawing them with a dotting tool from a different direction than I typically do it!

I used a base color of OPI Don’t Burst My Bubble, which is gorgeous for French manicures. Then, I taped off sections and painted I Love Nail Polish Raspberry Beret, a deep pink linear holographic polish. Once that was dry, I painted on OPI Haven’t the Foggiest – I didn’t use tape for this color, because I was struggling with the lines. That is probably why my lines aren’t even!

Abstract

Backstory: I live in an apartment which used to belong to my brother, and a lot of his stuff is still around. I found a little painting in his (now my) room last night and I was intrigued – I gave him a call to ask about it, and he told me it was painted by his beautiful fiancée! So I knew I just had to use it as my inspiration for this day of the challenge. Here was my version of this artwork:

I used a base of OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, and then took acrylic paints that matched the painting and dabbed them onto my nail with a small brush.

Nostalgia swatch for blog0

I Love Nail Polish Nostalgia, 2 coats  An incredibly unique Ultra Chrome effect that gives this polish a festive green, gold, and red color shift. My swatches really do not do this justice, in fact I’m not extremely excited about these swatches because the polish is really just so much more amazing in person.

Pretty & Polished Queen of Hearts is a medium red jelly loaded with red iridescent flecks and red and gold shimmering particles.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I love this one!  The red is such a great bold color, and the iridescent sparkles are amazing.
