this is just the greatest

I’d seen Cristina’s friggin amazing tutorial and I really wanted to try it. So I did. Although it took me way way longer than I had anticipated (the decals took forever to dry, should have prepped ahead…), but it was really easy, and it resulted in my favourite mani for a very, very long time.

crazy random hodgepodge

hodgepodge is a damn fine word! this is just loads of pastelly polishes dry-brushed onto Sinful Colors Be Happy, with one coat of 17 Tropical Punch on top.



pure excellence

Quickie but awesome

This is R&R Lacquers Radiant which is as awesome as always, over Barry M Elderberry which never ceases to be gorgeous. That’s it.

holy crap this looks the best on camera ever!

This is holy mixture of things. This is one layer of Gallery Colours Black Sparkle layered over a black for some quick opacity. Then I’ve layered one thick coat of Models Own Jack Frost, and the mixture of the subtle reds at the bottom, the blues and green/yellows on top is just insanely pretty. I’m having the same issues with this Models Own glitter as every other I’ve ever tried, however, and that is its horrible goopiness, regardless of how much you try to thin it, as well as the insane bubbling it does to every single top coat I’ve ever tried it with.. Ah well, can’t see the bubbles for the sparkles ;) Love this so so much!DSC_0276edit
