Lights on

Lights

I used a base of MASH – White, then I used the Barry M – Black Nail Art Pen for the wire, then I used Barry M – Bright Red, OPI – The It Colour, and OPI – Green-wich Village for the lights, and white acrylic paint for the reflections. All topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

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.

Daisies

For these I started off with a base of MASH – Black, then I used acrylic paint for the white flowers and dots, and then I used Butter LONDON – Jasper for the yellow centres of the flowers, all topped off with a coat of Seche Vite.

Femme Fatale Keeper of the Grove 3

Femme Fatale Keeper Of The Grove is a glitter bomb with green, red, gold and blue glitter in various sizes and shapes in a lime green jelly base. This is all kinds of crazy, and I love it haha! The formula on mine was a bit on the thick side but I had no application issues and the opacity was good. I used 2 coats for the photos below.

Surprise dance party!

Hey guys! Today I have a some polishes to show you from Wing Dust Collections, a Canadian indie brand with beautiful unique polishes that will make your jaw drop! They are packed with glitter and amazing color combinations, and I love them. These polishes are from the Fall 2013 collection, which will be available on November 18th.

Did I not warn you about how beautiful these polishes are?! Muskoka Sunset is a bright purple crelly filled with bright pink, orange, periwinkle and lavender glitters that suspend perfectly in their base. This polish truly looks like a beautiful sunset, and it is so unique. Shown above is three coats, no fishing or dabbing required.

Fireworks nail art 2

I started with a base of w7 Black, which is my favourite black creme, and added a glitter gradient to make it look like fireworks in the night sky. From thumb to pinkie the colours are Sparkler, Catherine Wheel, Rocket, Roman Candle and Banger

NO SPOILERS!

I haven’t finished the series yet – I’m so behind! – but this amazing nail art gives nothing away…

Breaking bad nail art

I’ve chosen to do a recreation of a Heisenberg sketch done supposedly by the Mexican cartel but in a Warhol style. I’ve actually tried to find out who has done the sketch but no one knows.

Spring Heart Nail Art

Spring Challenge Love and Life 3

For the first theme I admit I was a bit uncreative, and went with a heart pattern. I wanted to make it a bit 60s, and chose the Orange and Pink combination.  I’ll be the first to admit that this is not my finest work, but the overall effect is actually really quite cute – it just doesn’t stand up to close (macro) inspection! The base is Barry M Pink Flamingo and the hearts and dots are painted with acrylic paints.

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.
