Royal Jelly

FBJ is a bright royal blue jelly base with large and medium white hex glitter, as well as what I think is white matte microglitter. I used two coats for my swatches. There was a LOT of the large hex glitter in this polish, so I didn’t have to do any fishing for the pieces. It applied nicely, and only required a little bit of fussing with the large glitter placement to be perfect.

Rorschach

 Rorschach 4

Hi everyone!  It has been forever since I did a water color mani – but I was curious to see if I could take it in the Rorschach Test direction.

I started off with two coats of Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, followed by one coat of SV.

Using the polish brush, I placed a few dots of Sugar Cube and Salon Perfect Oil Slick randomly on the nail.

Stars and Stripes

Usa hockey nails 1  watermark

When I first started kicking around the idea of doing some USA hockey nail art, I knew from the beginning that more than just doing a red, white, and blue design, I really wanted to capture the three main elements of the jerseys Team USA is wearing in Sochi this year: the crest on the front, the thick red and white armbands, and the shiny stars across the shoulders.

Dance Legend Zebrasoma is a cool blue jelly loaded with micro hexes and squares in black and white.  The formula was smooth and easy to apply.  I absolutely adore this one! Shown is two coats of Zebrasoma.

Nifty Fifties

 Nifty Fifties Pattern Nail Art 1

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.

Purple Pond

Floral purple pond manicure deborah lippmann call me irresponsible 2

A pond manicure is basically a jelly sandwich, but with nail art between the layers instead of a glitter polish. For mine I used Deborah Lippmann’s Call Me Irresponsible, a purple jelly polish, and I did little white flowers with a needle-point dotting tool. It was a little tricky for me to find jelly polishes in my stash that were sort of clear jellies; I feel like a lot of mine are sheer but sort of creamy/cloudy (not like in a gross way, in an intentional way). Of course once I was all done with this I remembered that ALL of the Milani Neon polishes are super clear jelly polishes! Derp!
