"Hanalei Sunset" -  Indigo base with shimmering glass flecks, neon pink, holographic violet and bright pink holographic microglitter. I found the formula of this polish to be the most fiddly in this collection. I found that doing one thickish coat turned out better than doing two thinner coats as the second coat dragged a bit. For my swatch I did two coats on some nails and one coat on the other nails. The overall finished look is the same, it was just the application that made a difference. All nails were topped with a glossy top coat.

31DC2016weekly 6: Purple

As my last post explained I am very far behind in this challenge. So I have pretty much failed, but I am still going! For my purple mani I used "Vant To Bite My Neck?" "Funky Dunkey" and "You're Such A BudaPest" all by O.P.I. I did a dry drag marble using these shades with the help of my Uber mat by UberChic.

31DC2016weekly 5: Blue

It is embarrassing how far behind I am, especially considering this is a weekly challenge. To try and justify why I am so behind... April has been a very busy month for me. Firstly I work full time (so that takes up all my time on weekdays), then I also had my university graduation, grad party, birthday, and then a weekend a way to celebrate everything. So now time to catch up! For my blue mani I used "Summer Nights" by Glam Polish, and then stamped over the top using "Snow" by Celestial Cosmetics and Born Pretty stamping plate BP-41.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter everyone! For Easter I did a cute mani featuring decorated eggs and a little chick hatching out of one of them. All of the polishes used are by Picture Polish: "Fairy Floss" (pink), "Mellow Yellow" (yellow), "Wisteria" (purple), "Sky" (blue), & "Tango" Orange. I free handed the shape of the eggs and the chick, then used dotting tools and zig zag nail vinyls for the decorated eggs.
