Guest post from Marisa a.k.a Hey, Darling Polish!

Guest post from Dani a.k.a Dani’s Manis

Hi everyone! Dani here! I am super excited to be guest blogging today, I think this is the first guest post I’ve ever done! At first I was worried I wouldn’t be able to come up with anything good nail art wise as my muse has been on vacation lately, but then I remembered that Doctor Who is back. Problem solved! All I did for this one was let my inner whovian loose on my nails. After three or four failed attempts at other Doctor Who things, I had success with this TARDIS in the clouds!

I ended up using Pahlish – Over the Rhone(Bespoke Batch) as a base, it seemed like the perfect choice for a night sky look. The flakies in it do a great job resembling stars if you ask me, hahaha. The rest of the nail art stuff was done with 4 colors of acrylic paint(white, black, royal blue, and periwinkle).

I won’t say too much about Doctor Who because I’d like to keep it spoiler free for y’all in case you haven’t had a chance to watch yet, but I will say that I think Peter Capaldi is going to be a fantastic Doctor, and I can’t wait to see what this season has in store for him!

I still haven’t been able to watch the new episode, somehow I forgot to record it! But these nails make me feel better, haha. Thanks so much for guesting Dani!

Guest post from Debbie a.k.a WonderfulWolf

Hello Lovelies!

I have a super crazy week ahead of me and won’t be able to blog much, so I decided to interrupt your usual blog experience with some guest posts written by some of my favorite nail art ladies!

So hello! I’m Debbie, aka WonderfulWolf, and I like to paint my nails. I found Alexandria’s blog through the OMD2 challenge and when I saw her nails I knew I had to follow her.

I’ve never written a guest post before, so I couldn’t believe it when she contacted me to write one for her! Alexandria gave me free reign on what I could do nail art wise so I took inspiration from the nail art she paints – I think she paints bright, bold, and also pretty. So I tried to incorporate these factors in what I created.

I used three pastel colours to keep it simple and fresh. I used my hole-punch re-enforcers to get those nice clean curves and then I used a matte top coat because I thought it looked funkier!

 It’s been super guest posting – I hope you liked it, and thanks again to Alexandria!

These are so pretty Debbie! Thanks so much for guesting 🙂 You should all check out Debbie’s blog WonderfulWolf, she posts just amazing nail art, you can also check out her facebook page here.

Finger Paints Tails of Love swatches and review

Hello Lovelies!

I went into Sally’s a couple days ago because I heard they were having an awesome clearance sale, sadly it was only on the weekend, but I did pick up this pretty polish! This is Finger Paints Tails of Love, I actually didn’t know it was a texture polish when I first got it, I just saw the color and went “I need that”!

This is two coats of Tails of Love, it’s from the 2014 Enchanted Mermaid collection. The color really reminds me of Wet n Wild’s bijou blue, I used it as a base in this mani. I really like the fish scale feel to these, with full blown texture polish I always feel like they’re going to catch on things, but since these are only a little bit rough I can deal with it.
I’ve read a ton of bad reviews of these polishes, and how their application was terrible, but I had no problems whatsoever. It took a while to dry all the way, but was dry enough to touch after five minutes.
I probably won’t get any of the other polishes in the Enchanted Mermaid collection, I mostly got this because I thought the blue was really pretty and didn’t look similar to any other polishes I’d seen before.

Thanks for reading!
