Black And Teal Swirl Nail Stamping



Hello readers,
Today I have some nail are to show you that I wore to not one, but two weddings this past weekend! (It was slightly exhausting :P ).  I started out with a base of Girly Bits Mint-al Precesion topped with one coat of Pahlish The Wayfarer.  Then I used China Glaze Liquid Leather and Pueen Plate SE03B to stamp on the black swirl design.  Finally I sealed everything up with a coat of Seche Vite.  Photos show the above mani in daylight spectrum lighting.

Bio Seaweed Gel Whitehorse Swatches, Review & Discount Code



Hello readers,
Today I'm trying out my first ever gel polish.  Bio Seaweed Gel sent me a couple polishes from their Unity All-In-One line to test out.  The nice thing about these gels is that they cure in bright direct sunlight, so you don't need a UV lamp to use them.  Also, you don't need to roughen up your natural nails before hand, just prep with rubbing alcohol.  Bonus: They are 5-free!

ILNP Paper Route & Lucky 13 Lacquer Song Of Storms Glitter Gradient



Hello readers,
Today I have a simple glitter gradient to show you.  I used ILNP Paper Route as my base colour and then dabbed on Lucky 13 Lacquer Song Of Storms to do the gradient.  Finally, I used two coats of Essence Gel-Look top coat to smooth everything out to a glassy finish.  This is a super easy look but I think the results look really pretty.  Photos were taken in daylight spectrum lighting.

Purple Kaleidoscope Nail Stamping



Hello readers,
Today I have nail stamping to show you. This was my first attempt at using my new Moyou London XL Marshmellow stamper and I'm starting to get the hang of it (after a few warped stamps). I started with The Polish Bar White Lilac as my base colour. Then I stamped on the kaleidoscope pattern using China Glaze Liquid Leather and Kaleidoscope plate 03. Finally, I used OPI Purple Perspective from the Color Paints collections to colour in part of the stamped design. One coat of Essecne Gel-Look top coat was used to seal everything up. Photos show the above mani in daylight spectrum lighting.

ILNP Paper Route Swatches & Review



Hello readers,
I try to resist buying holo's these days since I tend to buy the same family of colours over and over again. However, when the ILNP Summer 2015 collection came out, I couldn't resist the lure of the flecked holos.  The flecked finish made them just different enough that I could justify picking up a few for myself. Paper Route is the first one I've had a chance to wear.
