Nothing really to say about this one... Just simple lines. Tape is useful for making nice crisp edges.

Lets Get Crackin!

I know I'm a little late on the crackle phase, but this was the first chance I got to experiment with it! All crackles used are from the new China Glaze Crackle Glaze collection. Since I only have five fingers obviously, I opted to wait another time to test out Fault Line, the purple crackle. I applied the polish in various manners so that patterns differed. At first it's a little hard to get the concept of thin, put opaque coats, but it's really simple to get the hang of. I noticed that when applied Cracked Concrete it kind of broke apart the base coat underneath so that my nail was slightly visible.

Oink Oink!

My birthday is tomorrow! And it seems a bit odd, but that's where my inspiration for this manicure came from.... When I was little my sister gave me the nickname "Piggy" so this is sort of an homage to childhood and growing up! The accent nail seems a little out of place, but I just did it because I'd never worn that color before and it has a party vibe to it!

The base of the pig is Xtreme Wear Fuchsia Power. The nose is Xtreme Wear Bubblegum Pink, the eyes are Xtreme Wear White On, and Xtreme Wear Black out ( also used on the nose). The accent nail is just Color Club Worth The Risque.

Strawberry Fields Forever

 These pictures are complete misrepresentation of Zoya Carrie Ann. To be honest I haven't really seen any accurate depictions of it on the internet either. The pictures make the color look almost like a cream red, but in reality its actually very shimmery with undertones of orange and an almost metallic finish.
Zoya Carrie Ann is the red of the strawberry. The leaves are Xtreme Wear Going Green, and the seeds are Xtreme Wear Black Out.
