I was really excited about the Estée Lauder polish that I got on sale. Like, really really excited. It's a super gorgeous shade of purple in the bottle, with flecks of rainbow and glitter and tons of depth. And then I put it on my nail, only to find that all that depth and those tons of colors in the glitter vanished into a flat silvery kind of color. Still not terrible looking, but definitely not what I was going for. So, I decided that it'd make a really nice base for my clear starry polish that I have.
And I love how it turned out!! These polishes are perfect together. Enough said.

Hello lovelies!! Ok so I'm particularly proud of this design, because my goal was to test my skills. (What skills, you may ask? I weep a little.) I wanted to make this mani LOOK like a taped mani. BUT!! The catch was that I wasn't going to use tape!! I wanted to see how clean and neat I could make my lines just freehanding them. And dang I think I did a pretty rockin job. :3
Colors used were: China Glaze Refresh Mint, China Glaze Always A Lady, China Glaze White On White, and OPI Oy-Another Polish Joke.
Hello lovelies!! Wow I've been gone for a while, sorry about that! I haven't given up on nail blogging of course, I just graduated college and so I've been dealing with the craziness of moving back home for the summer. Also I got a dog, so he's been taking up most of my attention. Seriously, how can you not love this face??????!?!?
Ahem. So anyways I've been training him and neglecting my nails a bit. But! That doesn't mean I haven't been doing them at all!! Last week I did these lovely wave-style nails, and they were super fun and easy!! I'd suggest them to anyone who doesn't really have time to do something fancy but still wants some ass-kickin nails.
Colors used were OPI Yoga-ta Get This Blue, OPI Can't Find My Czech-book, and OPI Fly.
