Pusheen Eating Pie Nail Art Tutorial

Hello Lovelies! I have a tutorial for you guys today! I found this gif of Pusheen a while back and thought it was just too cute, and I had to make some nail art for it! And guess what? I even made a video tutorial […]

No use crying over spilt milk

Hello Lovelies! It’s been almost two weeks since I did some serious nail art, and that’s just disgraceful! I’ve been in a cutesy pastel mood, and these cute erasers fit that theme perfectly! I started with three coats of Essie Ballet Slippers and then let […]

New Alphabet Nail Art Challenge & Polish Stash List

Hello Lovelies!

I have two exciting things to tell ya about today! First off, I’ve been wanting to do a nail art challenge for a while now, and I think I’ve finally landed on a theme that I love!
I’m doing a nail art challenge going down the alphabet! So I’ll start with a polish that starts with a, then the next day b, (so first use Pure Ice A-list then Wet n Wild Bubblegum etc). And since normal people don’t have a polish for every letter of the alphabet, if you’re missing letters you can do some nail art for the letter instead, (apple, bat, cat, you get it right?). I want to avoid doing a mani everyday since that can get exhausting, but if I stretch it out too long it’ll take ages, since we have 26 letters to get through! So I’m thinking posting a mani every other day and starting this near the beginning of October, if you’d be interested in joining me in this nail challenge leave me a comment!

Secondly, I’m going to be creating a page on the blog of my polish stash! I’m going to be sorting it by brand, and if I have swatches of a polish, I’ll add links to the post next to each polish. It’ll take a while to put together since I have quite a few polishes, but once I get it up and running, if you see a polish on the list you’d like to see swatched or want to know anything about it, tell me and I’ll swatch it up! I’ll also add in which are good for stamping, if they’re one or two coaters, if they’re dupes, etc.

Thanks for reading my rambly post, and tell me what you think of these two new ideas of mine!

Nails that look like fish bait?

Hello Lovelies!

Even more glitter today! I’m swatching rue beaute! Candy Confetti 070 today.

I’ve been very surprised by the quality of Rue 21’s polishes, usually store brand polishes are horrible, but I love these to pieces! I have a couple of their layered polishes, and I just got this one. This is three coats, and it’s a fluorescent neon yellow with bright blue hex glitters. It dries matte, but I used a shiny topcoat.

My mother kept insisting that this polish looks exactly like Power-bait, and since we were going to the store, I sneakily snapped this picture in the fishing department, I guess it does look like fish bait, haha.

Thanks for reading!

Color Club Cosmic Fate swatches

Hello Lovelies!

I finally got my hands on a holographic polish, and I now get the hype about them!

This is Color Club cosmic fate, and just wow…., the difference between in the sun and in the shade is ginormous! In the shade Cosmic Fate is a pale copper, but in the sun it’s just dazzling!
This is two coats, and I didn’t use any topcoat because I’ve heard that it can dull the holo effect. Now that I’ve been enlightened to how wonderful holos are, I’m certainly going to be on the lookout for more!

Thanks for reading!
