Hi all!!! *Waves* Ugh, it feels like forever since I’ve posted! I have a few posts to share with you in the next few days. Lately I’ve been craving vampy deep colors because you know… Fall is here. I sifted through my bin of 100’s of polishes and pulled out Teach Me Tonight by Il Etait Un Vernis. I bought this polish about 6 or 7 months ago, but am just now getting around to wearing it. I think I tried it on when I first got it, but my camera wouldn’t cooperate for photos so I took it off. Now that I have a really good lighting set up, I figured I’d give it another go and see what happened with the pictures. All I have to say is wow!!! I can’t believe how well my camera picked up the red shimmers in the deep blackened purple base along with the scattered holo. This morning I decided to try and make my mani a little bit more fancy by making some half moons and adding glitter along the line. I really love how this turned out! First let’s look at the polish itself.
Isn’t this color stunning?! Of course… Knowing me, I can’t just leave it there. I have to change it somehow or do nail-art with it lol.
What do you think of the nailart? I know my hand pose is weird there.. But I was too lazy to set up my tripod and everything. Would you try this look? Stay tuned for some gorgeous shades that Pahlish is releasing this Sunday coming up. Talk to you all soon!
Hi all! Picture Polish is holding a contest on their Instagram and I decided to participate. The theme was lace. There are already so many beautiful designs showing up and I have no idea how Jules and her team are going to pick winners! Everyone done such an amazing job 🙂 The rules stated that you have to use 2-5 Picture Polish shades. One of the photos had to show the nail-art with the bottles and the other photo a stand-out of the nail art itself. I thought about using my lace panties as a prop(not on me!), but decided not to because that would be too risky lol. Anywho… Pictures down below!
What do you think of this look? For the stamping I used hehe Fairytale 02 stamping plate. I really love how this turned out 🙂 Thanks so much for reading! If you want to see my post on IG here’s the link! Talk to you all soon!
Hi everyone! I saw some cute nail-art that nailthatdesign on IG did and I decided to recreate it. My Moyra stamping plates (I only own 2) have been collecting dust so I decided to pull out my Lace one from them and give it a whirl. This look is sooo fun! I filed the tops of my nails to get rid of staining I had (I know, I know it’s really bad for you to do that) so I could do a negative space look with the lace. I put down a coat of my Nailtiques Formula 2 base coat (it has proteins in it that strengthens your nails), and then a coat of top coat, and then I stamped on top. To get the crisp lines I used What’s Up Nails Wide Straight Tape. Gala is so opaque that it covered the lace in nearly one coat!
What do you think of this look? Is this something you would wear? Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!!!
Hi all! I decided to add some stamping to ILNP Close-Knit! I wanted to do a stamping look that wouldn’t cover up the gorgeous holo shine of this look so I decided to do a black negative space design from Uber Chic Beauty’s 7-03 stamping plate. I haven’t pulled out my Uber Chic stamping plates in forever, so it was nice to sift through them and pick something out to use. I really really love how this turned out, and I hope you do too!
This polish has quickly went up my list in my top 10 fall polishes for this year so far. I am SO in love with it! Look at the gold shimmers in there! Well, it’s time for bed… I’ve been taking yucky antibiotics to get well again, and they have some nasty side-effects. Hopefully I feel 100% once I’m done with them though. Talk to you all soon!
Hi everyone! How are you all? I’ve been better personally… The past couple of days have been bad to say the least. Two days ago I had to go to the ER for severe Endometriosis pain and fainting/vomiting from it (and on top of that they said I had a UTI)… And then yesterday I had a pounding migraine. Today my body just feels drained. I finally felt well enough to change out my manicure and try out one of my new ILNP Polishes from their fall collection.
ILNP’s website says that Close Knit is “Packed with an array of over-sized ultra-holographic micro-flakes for an incredible sparkle and carefully accented with a striking gold shimmer, Close Knit is a perfectly warm and refined pink beauty that packs a serious punch!” I agree with everything that description says! It was opaque in 2 coats and dried in decent time. Check out my pictures below!
What do you think of this color? I’m very tempted to place another order on their website… There were a couple more from the fall collection that was on my wishlist. Thanks so much for reading today and I’ll talk to you soon!
Hi all! I’m still sifting through my untried polishes and this shade was one of them. I think I might’ve used this shade in a reverse stamping manicure, but I can’t remember for sure lol. Superior is a beautiful dusty blue and unfortunately I can’t find it in stock anywhere!!! I’ve looked on Color4nails, (where I usually buy my Picture Polishes from) Picture Polish’s Website, and Live Love Polish. I hope they haven’t discontinued it. I put this manicure on a day ago and I already have a chip on my pointer finger on my left hand. I’m so disappointed 😦 It probably happened because I’ve been doing dishes without my gloves.
Such a beautiful blue! A little update on what’s been going on in my life….
I’ve been having visual hallucinations at night… One night I thought our cat was hanging from our chandelier. Once I came around (I was waking from dozing off) I realized that nothing was hanging on the chandelier. Am I going crazy? LOL! I don’t know if insomnia can cause hallucinations or not… or if it’s the polish fumes. I have got to cut back on polishing my nails. I keep telling myself that I’ll wear a manicure for a week, but I end up switching it out the next day. I find comfort and relaxation by painting my nails and it helps to relieve anxiety, but the fumes cannot be good at all to inhale… Especially when I swatch a bunch of polishes all together in one sitting. Hubby bought me a mask (it’s like a painters mask) and a fan to keep air circulating but I keep forgetting to use them. I’m not sure if the painters mask even keeps out the fumes very well… I need to find a better one. Any suggestions?
Thanks for reading today and I’ll talk to you all soon!
