Tissue Men

Hello! Today I have a bit of a silly manicure. I saw these adorable guys on a tissue box and they were so cute that I just had to paint them! The blues are China Glaze Wait 'N Sea and China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond. The greens are Xtreme Wear Green With Envy and Revlon Posh.

Pinks And Blues Water Marble

Hello! Today I have another water marble! I was so happy with my last one, so I really wanted to do another. While I think I'm getting better at making them neat, I'm still trying to work out how to get actual designs onto the nail. For this mani I used China Glaze Givers Theme, Capacity To See Beyond, New Birth, and Color Club Kiss My French.

Blue And Purple Water Marble

Hello! It's been a while since I did a water marble. Not too long ago I picked up China Glaze One Track Mind, All Aboard, and New Birth at Sally's. When I got home it hit me that they might work well marbled together. For being way out of practice, I'm really happy with out it turned out! I feel like the pictures don't really show off how pretty and how nicely these polishes meshed together.

Vertical Dotticure

Hello! Here's a manicure I did recently which consists of many dots. I'm not very good with dotting tools, so I thought this would make for some good practice. The base is China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint. For the design I used China Glaze All Aboard, China Glaze Secret Peri-wink-le, Essie Turquoise And Caicos, and Extreme Wear Pinch Of Punch.

Glitter Week: Maybelline Precious Pearl

Hello! It's the last day of my glitter week. Actually, yesterday was supposed to be the finale day, but I was busy, so I wasn't able to paint my nails until late at night. The glitter that I used for this mani is Maybelline Precious Pearl, which is a bunch of different sized white glitters in a clear base. I sponged a line of this down the center of my nail. My lines aren't all that centered or straight, but I still think it's pretty. The base is a two color gradient using Essie Turquoise And Caicos and China Glaze Sweet Hook.

Glitter Week: China Glaze Create A Spark

For today's manicure the glitter that I'm sporting is China Glaze Create A Spark! It has pink, black, and purple hex glitter, and it's really pretty. This time I did a glitter placement using the polish. I'm so happy with how this turned out; I love doing glitter placement! The base is China Glaze New Birth and for the stripes I used Zoya Megan. Something's a bit weird with these pictures, the nails look much cleaner in person.

Glitter Week: OPI When Monkeys Fly!

 Today the glitter that I'm wearing is OPI When Monkeys Fly! When Monkeys Fly! has holo glitter in two sizes and also large gold hexagons. This nail polish has a pretty bad reputation, but I love it! The most common complaint about this polish is that the gold glitter tends to "taco," but I've never had an issue with it doing that. The holo glitters are really amazing too, I can't help but stare at them! For this manicure I put the glitter polish on to a sponge first so that I could really pack it on the nails without making them super thick. The pink is Color Club Kiss My French and the silver is Xtreme Wear Celeb City.
