Galaxy Nails!

Hello, my lovelies!
It’s rainy day today in DC, and I can’t do any yard work, so I’m doing nails? Yep. 

I’ve been meaning to do galaxy nails for a couple of weeks so I decided today’s the day! This is definitely a mani that requires time, as it involves layering polish. 

So, onward we go! First, we start off with a black base. I recently got Nevermore by Cult nails, hailed as a one coat black polish. No joke, it really is! I did two coats anyway. It also dries pretty quick, and applied super smoothly.

Glitterland Glitter!

Hello, my lovelies!

Today I have something a little different. I was chosen as one of 13 winners to try out some nail art glitter by Glitterland! Glitterland is a new nail art glitter store run by Datyorkloves

I received a packet of the purple star glitter, which is a beautiful purple that shifts to green. So I decided to put it over a light green, using Toad-ally Awesome by Spoiled. They complement nicely, and the glitter is super reflective and shiny! If the stars look green in the pics, it's the light reflecting. So pretty!

Hello, my lovelies!

It’s Try It On Tuesday again! Be sure to stop by the wonderful Jilltastic Nail Design to see what all the bloggers are trying today! She always lists the participating bloggers of the week and is the coordinator of the project!

I’ve never thought Floam was an especially pretty polish, but it falls under the “interesting” category. Of course, it’s reminiscent of the old Floam we played with as kidsthe freakishly cool weird substance you could mold!

Julep Mischa!

Hello, my lovelies! 

How are you on this fabulous Friday? It’s mid-August and we’ve got heavy storms on the forecast. Which makes today’s color even more perfect! 

Today, I am sporting Julep Mischa, a “Cherry scarlet micro-shimmer”, according to Julep themselves. This color is slightly schizophrenic, it seems. In my natural light lit office, it almost looks pink-y. under the fluorescent lights of the hallway, they are fire-y red. And under  the yellow lights of the elevator, the look orange-y. I LOVE it!

Water Marble Mayhem!

Hello, my lovelies! 

I’m calling today Water Marble Mayhem! Why? Because it is just not in the cards today for me to have a water marble. I had planned to submit this to Shelly’s Sassy Nails for the Sassy Saturday of this month, but…no. These just did NOT come out well.

I don’t know if I had the water temp wrong or what, but the skins kept forming super quickly, the polish wouldn’t spread, etc. I tried a few times before giving up, but here’s how it went. I didn’t even bother with clean up, I was so annoyed, lol! Waring, pic heavy!
