Metallic Saran Wrap Mani

The prompt for today’s mani is metallic so I pulled out some polishes that had a truly metallic feel (I don’t have many). I came up with this. It doesn’t photograph well but it is really pretty. I used 2 coats of Jocarste #26 Silver and layered one thick coat of Wet N Wild Caribbean Frost over that and used wadded up Saran Wrap for dabbing some off. The accent nails were done with a dotting tool. I was thinking of using black or purple over the silver for a more contrasted look but I’ve used a lot of black and purple lately so I went with this.

Elegant Rays of Holo Goodness

Hello new followers!

Today’s challenge prompt is a tape manicures. I haven’t had much experience with tape manicures in the past but despite difficulties I persevered and came up with this look that I love, love, love!
I started off with two coats of BK Holo #1 and then added some Wet N Wild Kaleidoscope glitter. I went ahead and let that dry overnight and today I cut up some scotch tape and used my Chic Black Velvet to add the black. I think they turned out awesome! I have several pictures for you today including a fuzzy one to let you see the holo glittery goodness! My sweet hubby, who I enlisted to help take pictures this evening, keeps commenting on how great they look.

Let me know what you think in the comments. I know you are jealous! 🙂

Antique roses

I thought I would share with you all the very first real nail art I did several months ago which really started me on my new hobby. 🙂

Isn’t it pretty? I was in love and decided I really wanted to use my nails as my creative outlet. I’ve had so much fun since then!

I probably followed a tutorial but I honestly don’t remember. I know, I know… Not cool.

To do this I used:
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear – Mint Sorbet
Wet n Wild – 436 (Pink pearl is the name I believe. It’s really old)
Chic – silky white
Dotting tool

Glitter tips

This is a mani I have done a couple of different times with the same colors because I loved it so much! The base color is 2 coats of “Amethyst” from the Chic “Grainy” line. It is a gorgeous glittery purple and is easy to apply (and remove for that matter) Then I grabbed my Wet N Wild kaleidoscope glitter which is a great holographic glitter which can be purchased at SM Cebu. I sponged the glitter on the top half of the nail then on one quarter of the nail then just the very tips. Then finish with a top coat.

Kapow! Look at those beauties! This is such a simple nail art look but it is just gorgeous! I hope you like them! Have a great day!
