100th Post ; Watermarbling & Homecoming ( Picture Heavy )

Hey everyone ! I hope you are all doing well. I'm doing pretty fine on this rainy rainy day. Today was my first day being able to work on clients in school today . It was very nerve-wrecking but everything went well. As usual I'm exhausted but what else is new. Anyway I'm here today with a simple little watermarbling manicure. I watermarbled my nails for my Homecoming dance last Friday and it came out nice ! I used OPI Black Onyx as my base used OPI DS Limited and OPI San Tan-Tonio. After that I added some rhinestones and a flower with black and white acrylic paint . This is a very pic heavy post so let's get right into it. There will also be a picture of my homecoming dress at the end. Enjoy !

End Of The Month Haul ; September

Hey everyone ! I hope you are all doing well. I took a little break from my homework to tend to my blog. Anyway I've decided on something a little new. I've decided that I'm just going to post hauls at the end of each month since I accumulate an average of about 8 polishes a month. So today is the first end of the month haul. I'm sure that I won't buy anymore polish so this is why it's so early. These colors will also be apart of my Swatch Series also. Anyways let's get right into the pictures. Enjoy !

My Birthday Mani !

Hey everyone ! I feel like it's been so long since I've spoken to you all. How are you all? Me ? I just got over being sick and I've just been swamped with school . 11th grade already sucks let me tell you . Well anyway I haven't really gotten the chance to paint my nails but there is a mani I did on my birthday. By the way is was on September 17th if you can't tell by the nails. I'm now 17 ! I used CG Flip Fantasy, CG Secret Periwinkle, and CG Spontaneous. I also used black, white, pink, blue, and purple acrylic paints.  All these colors contributed to my beautiful birthday mani. Well I hope you all enjoy this mani.

The Birds & The Palm Trees

Hey everyone ! How are you guys ? I'm doing okay just got done with a massive amount of homework. Well anyway I'm going to get right into the mani because I'm dying of exhaustion. I decided to go with something tropical and this is what happened. I think that maybe I could use a thinner brush but otherwise I like it. If you have any questions of the colors please just ask because I'm terribly lazy. Enjoy !

Swatch Series # 2 ; OPI DS Limited

Hey everyone ! I hope you are all doing fantastic. Me ? I'm okay just a little high school drama you know. Well anyway I'm here with another swatch. This time it's going to be OPI DS Limited. This color is so so so gorgeous. I can't even begin to describe how much I love this color. It's a nice corally pinkish brownish. I don't what it is but something about it is so appealing. The formula was great and applied smoothly. You just have to watch out to apply it even because of the bald spots. Other than that this color is absolutely amazing. I'm sorry that I couldn't get any pictures of in the natural sunlight but the sun started setting just as I was finishing up. Enjoy !

Swatch Series #1 ; OPI DS Mystery

Hey everyone ! (: I hope you are all doing well. I'm doing great. I've finally gotten a break from homework and I'm just so excited to be able to relax. Well anyway today I'm just here with a simple swatch. I have about 5 or 6 untried polishes and I want to swatch them before I start doing things with them so this color was swatch number one. The color is from OPI and it's called DS Mystery. It's a beautiful, deep, dark, rich plum color with gold tones in it. I think that this color is absolutely amazing ! I couldn't really capture the holo in my pictures but it's soo nice. The application was beautiful and went over without a hitch. Either way let's get right into the pictures. Enjoy !

Purple Flower Mani

Hola everyone how are you ? I'm pretty good myself. I feel like I keep being late on posts but I really have been so swamped in homework plus I babysat on Friday so it becomes sort of hard to get to my computer. I am here now though. I'm here with just a purple version of my last mani. I used OPI Planks A Lot and pastel purple acrylic paint. Then I used a black rhinestone. I think I like this one better than the orange. It looks a lot better to me. What do you think ? Either way enjoy !

Orange Flower Mani

Hey everyone. How are you all doing? I'm doing just fine on this crappy rainy day. Anyway I'm here with another simple mani. It's a simple orange flower mani. I painted my nails in two Color Koo Koo Cachoo and then did flower petals in white acrylic paint. Then for the center I used a yellow rhinestone. I liked that this was very simple but yet so cute. I even did this mani in purple so look out for that. Well I know this is short but there isn't much to say about this mani. I hope you enjoy !

OPI Silver Shatter

Hey ladies. How are you all ? I know this is a long awaited post but I've finally gotten a reason to use the silver shatter. My mom wanted silver on her nails so I decided this would be the perfect time to get a swatch. She used China Glaze Blue Paradise with OPI Silver Shatter of course. Afterwards we just added some dots with a silver dot in the white dot. This was actually a very simple manicure and my mom loved it ! She still has it on in fact . Well this was a short post but enjoy !

A Robin Moses Inspired Mani

Hey ladies . I'm sorry for the day late post but I knew that I didn't have school today so last night I decided to get majority of my homework done so I could just hang out for my 4 day weekend . By the time I was done I was just ready to go to bed. Well anyway I'm here today ! So I have a Robin Moses inspired mani . When I was watching her video I really really liked this design so I had to do it . I didn't get pictures of everything because this was kind of a last minute thing before I went to my friend's birthday party so I apologize for that . I feel like I'm full of apologies but anyway the only colors I used were China Glaze Ruby Pumps and black acrylic paint . I used some silver rhinestones and then I was done ! Here's the video btw if you want to see it ; http://www.youtube.com/user/robinmosesnailart?blend=3&ob=5#p/u/6/R9ImL_1YuC8 . Enjoy !
