Day 8 – Polka Dot Nails

I thought I would jazz up the previous mani just a little and since it’s Polka Dots day why not!

I initially wanted to do dots on the whole nail but a failed attempt on my thumb led me to do otherwise. I finally settles with just a strip of dots running down the middle. I think it turned out rather OK.

For the dots I used Lucky Lucky Lavender on Lilac, Steady As She Rose on Lucky Lucky Lavender and Lilac on Steady As She Rose.

I still need lots of practice for my dots :S

Purple Skittles!

More untried polishes in this post! Actually, out of the 4 polishes I have on my fingers in this post, 2 are untrieds and the other two haven’t been used in quite some time!
I was thinking of a way to use all 4 polishes.I finally settled on a skittelette manicure to tackle this task. In shades of purple again! I think purple may just be my new favorite color.

The idea was to do a ombre manicure at the same time actually, one of the many nail art techniques that I have yet to pull off successfully!

What do you think? Does it count as an ombre manicure?

I used these colors Color by T.B.N Lilac (thumb), OPI Lucky Lucky Lavender (index finger), OPI Steady As She Rose (middle finger) and on The Hungry Asian Vote for Purple (ring finger and pinky).

Cookies and Cream Take Two!

Hello!! Welcome back!
LOL!
I’m a little cuckoo recently from work and holidays and falling sick. 😦
Anyways, as I promised yesterday, here is my jazzed up Cookies and Cream! I decided to bring out the black glitters in the polish wish a quick tape mani with OPIs Black Onyx.

I thought this added an edge to the innocence of just Cookies and Cream alone.

On my right hand I decided to add the black to the tips instead of the other way around! Yea, I did not use Cookies and CreamΒ on this hand because when I showed my mom yesterdays mani, she did not even notice that there was any black glitters. I also love mismatched nails every now and then. πŸ˜›

I love how these two manicures, though the difference is so slight has such different looks to it! What do you think? Would you walk around with mis-matched manicures on your hands?

The Hungry Asian – Cookies and Cream

I have a really quick post for you lovely ladies today!
I have Cookies and Cream from the Hungry Asian today! Cookies and Cream is a white milky base with a dash of fine black glitter in it.
I have always loved Kae’s (the lovely lady behind The Hungry Asian) creations and have been eyeing this polish as well as Strawberry since I first found out about her. Both these colors were out of stock for quite some time before I grabbed them and I do not regret it at all!
Don’t judge, but to be honest, I also made sure I grabbed this polish, even though all I could get that time was a mini, because it really does remind me of Cookies and Cream ice cream – one of my all time favorite ice creams! πŸ˜›

I have some nail art in my mind to spice up this manicure. Come on by tomorrow to see what I have up my sleeves πŸ™‚

P/s: I wore 2 coats of Cookies and CreamΒ over 2 coats of OPI Don’t Touch My Tutu

Who says black is boring??

The weekend is here!! What better way to bring in the weekend than to wear some dark, glittery polish??
This is 4 days after my last mani and my fingernails have grown quite a bit really! I didn’t expect them to be so long so quick. It must be because of all that nail juice (balms, oils and lotions) that I’ve been applying!
Today I have two awesome glitter polishes to show you. Can you spot the difference??
I am wearing I Got Distracted by Cult Nails on my middle, ring and little fingers and Sea Creature by The Hungry Asian on my thumb and pointer. I wore both of this polishes over 2 coats of OPI Black Onyx.

Both these polishes actually looked very similar, which is the reason why I paired them together. Sea Creature is a black jelly polish filled with blue/teal hex glitters, small black glitter with a dash of fuchsia and green superfine glitters. I Got Distracted on the other hand is also a black jelly base packe with holographic micro glitter and larger green glitter.
I did wear underwear for both this polishes because I did not want to use up too much of these precious polishes. And also I realised that the black base keeps this polish much smoother than if you would do 3 coats of just the polish. It also helps the longetivity of this polish (not that I keep them on for long!)

The blue/teal glitters in Sea Creature shows up way better in this photo above. And the photo below was intentionally blurred to bring out the awesomeness of the glitters!!
Are you distracted yet?
