Claire's Mystical

Sorry I'm a day late on this post but I was busy yesterday . I went to my friend's nephew's birthday party and I came home too late to even think about posting a blog . Anyway I hope your Sunday is going well . Today is just a simple mani I decided to do after swatching Claire's Mystical . The formula of this glitter polish is thick but still easy to apply . I had to apply 3 coats for it to be opaque. It's a beautiful mix of blue and purple glitters ! After I was done swatching it though I knew it needed something else . So I grabbed my black acrylic paint and my largest dotting tool and added some dots . Voila ! All done . Enjoy !

Quick Swatch Post

Hey guys , I've been doing so much today and I'm so tired . I haven't gotten the proper amount of sleep in about 3 days so today's post will be a quick swatch . Sorry for the laziness but I've been so busy . I was at my friend's house yesterday and we all did our nails . I decided on OPI Swimsuit.. You Nailed It with a layer of OPI Simmer and Shimmer . This is a beautiful combination although neither of my friends like it. I hope you do . Enjoy ! (:

Catrice In The Bronx

Hope everyone is having a beautiful day today .  I guess we're on a tornado watch but either way that's okay with me because that means it's getting cooler out . Anyway I won a Catrice polish over at Witoxicity a couple weeks ago and I just recently received it . The polish is Catrice In The Bronx . When I saw swatches of this polish I knew that I was going to love this on my skin tone. So a couple of days ago I decided to use it . This polish is flawless . It's a beautiful golden brown color that's opaque in two coats . The application was perfect and left no streaks . Just be careful how you apply it because you could end up with some bald spots . This polish is just perfect for me and I'll be wearing it so much more often . Although this color is gorgeous on it's own I knew it needed something so I added some freehanded some Cheetah print just using some black acrylic paint . Well without further ado here it is ! Enjoy !

OPI Color So Hot It Berns & Zebra Stripes

Hope you all are having a wonderful Friday . Again today it is so freaking hot. I really am going to die in this weather . It's supposed 104 degrees today ...... come on now /:  It was even hotter when I did this particular mani. So I thought to myself what can I do for a good summer mani . Then it came to me when I was looking at my untrieds. There it was OPI Color So It Berns . It was perfect for the weather that we are currently experiencing. So since it's my first time using this color , I'll tell you a little bit about it . It's a fire engine red polish that glides on so smoothly . It's opaque in one coat but of course I opted for two coats . I just love this color and it just screams SUMMER! Well since I don't like having just plain nails I had to do something to it . I was afraid of ruining the color so I just made my middle fingers the accent nails. Since I've been feeling zebra stripes lately you know that's what I ran to. I used China Glaze White on White to make a strip in the middle of the nail, grabbed a red striper from Artclub and made some zebra stripes, grabbed a silver striper from Artclub and highlighted some of the stripes , and then lined off either side with black acrylic paint. Finito ! Enjoy !

PS  ; I'm making the snakeskin tutorial today , so be looking for that soon :D
