"Far Side Of The Moon"

Hi Ladies! I know my postings have been a little sporadic lately but it's only because my first year of college is coming to an end which includes focusing on term papers and finals...Blah! so you guys know school has to be a priority. However as soon as I am done with school this blog will be constantly updated. I hope you ladies are looking forward to that as much as I am! :D...So on to my little nubbins..as you all know I love doing nail art,& that mainly comes from my enjoyment of looking at art either on the web or in museums, and at times my nail art is replication of actual paintings done by artist such as The" Birds of A Feather" piece I replicated not to long ago.Well today I have Another art work by her on my Nails (I hope she doesn't mind I am just loving her work!!!) :) This one is called "Far Side Of The Moon" I love love love this piece and here is how they came out on my nails.
What I Used
Sinful Colors-Snow Me White (2 coats)
Acrylic paints- Black,Red,White, Gray

Halloween Colors in Spring?

Hello, my wonderful readers!!! let me start this off by first telling you guys that Walgreens Is having a sale on All Sinful Colors nail polishes and they are just 99 cents!...so since I couldn't pass off on this offer I picked up a few bottles. One of them happened to be from their neon collection I have never tried neon colors but since it was on sale why the hell not. I ended up picking up A neon orange called Summer Peach And a few others So here is the manicure and ill speak about the polishes in a bit more detail after this picture :] now you will see why my choices in colors ended up looking halloweeny, yes?
See told you! lol
 but what do you guys think about the alternation of colors on each hand?
Sinful Colors-Summer Peach
   This Color is Sooooo much brighter in person something like a orange highlighter so this picture is not accurate at all! of course like all neon colors this one has matte finish in this swatch I used a white base and about two coats of Summer Peach.In my manicure I used white base as well and seriously about 4 coats...the formula was a nightmare to work with I kept having bald spots and streaks of all sorts but finally after the 4th coat It was opaque. But still application was a pain in the A$$ lol
Sinful Colors-Secret Admirer 
  Love Love This color as you can see it's a black/grey metallic color with micro silver shimmer. The formula was a bit runny so it flooded my cuticles a little bit. However this only needed 2 coats for complete coverage 
Nubar-Black Polka Dots
  Here we have black hex glitter with some black micro glitter in a clear base.Now let me tell you to get the big pieces of black glitter I had to fish for them! it was so annoying! but still black glitter is awesome so ill do the fishing for the big pieces lol
Sally Hansen-White Veil
    This Sally Hansen limited edition glitter is soooo pretty 
it contains micro round iridescent white glitter and gold hex glitter in a clear base...it applies so well so, plus there is no problem getting the big glitter out.

Well that's it for today ladies did you like any of these polishes?

Neptune, Love that Name!

   Hello there! :)....this gloomy weather in NYC has me feeling blue, so I figured I needed a shade to help match my mood...(what a weirdo I am) lol so anyways let me get to my point. What I am wearing on my nails today is Neptune By Sinful Colors Layered with Sinful Colors Smoking hot. Neptune is this super pretty royal blue jelly that reminds me of jeans,plus is has silver shimmer which just helps this color POP! the application was surprisingly awesome Sinful Colors formulas at times usually start out thin then get all tacky throughout the application process (well in my experience) but not this baby, it went on smooth and glided like butter, I barely needed clean up and it was opaque in 3 coats. It looked very pretty on its own but I then decided to add a coat of Smokin hot which is this micro-glittery top coat that almost gives a Holo effect ALMOST lol. ( well in the sunlight that is) but anyways Here is how this mani turned out.

P.s Please Excuse the shrinkage near my cuticles, Damn Seche Vite! lol

Close-up Of the color alone and layered.

Take Care Ladies ! :]

So on to the nails, today I have some nail art to show you, lately I have been searching the web for cute stuff for my room,apt etc...and I came across the cutest most artistic throw pillow I have ever seen. I was so obsessed with the print that I just had to replicate it....and here are the results.

What I Used:
3 coats of China Glaze-Sunshine Pop
the rest was all acrylic paints
the method I used for the gradient was Brush strokes and sponging

Pink Sunday

It's Sunday! I hate Sundays :-\,anyways I will keep this short :). This Weekend I filed my nails Round, I have NEVER EVER had round nails, i'm more of the square girl but I guess it was time for a little change lol. My nails are short so the roundness will be a little more obvious throughout the growing process. So yeah for today's manicure I did a pink gradient. I did start with the sponging technique but sometimes with sponging for some reason pieces of the sponge start to stick on my nails.So instead I used my fan brush and created the gradient effect.

What I Used
Sinful Colors-Snow me White
China Glaze-Dance Baby
China Glaze-Traffic Jam
China Glaze-Techno


Enjoy Your Day :D

Re-fresh mint & Glitter tips

Hi Lovely Ladies, so lately I have been buying so much nail polish that I feel the need to change the color of my nails Daily! that's insane because I usually last at least 4 days with the same polish lol! On that note, Remember how I mentioned last Friday That I bought a few China Glaze Collections? I finally received my order earlier this week! The first one I tried is Re-Fresh mint From the Up & Away Collection....Now Lets Talk Formula,It was a little thick (does anyone who owns this polish have that problem?) Anyways, besides that I loved the color which is a light mint blue/green creme. In the pictures below I only needed two coats for complete opacity. As for the glitter Tips I used a mix of Jordana silver glitter,Milani Jewels Fx-Gold & Spoiled-Jewelry Heist

Have A Great Day Ladies And Don't forget to enter my Giveaway :)

Trying Camouflage

Happy Easter To all who celebrate it! :)
  For today instead of a Easter, pastel Manicure I went with something a little different that I have been wanting to try for a while now and that is Camouflage print. While on the web I came Across a Brand Called Comme-des-garcon.Their Logo is this heart shape with eyes.There I came across one of their t-shirts and loved it..Ill post a picture of it at the end...So yeah on to the manicure as background color I used Diamond Cosmetics-Cafe Au Lait A beautiful beige shimmer color that reminds me of coffee with cream (lol) The application was perfect I only needed two coats for complete coverage.For the print and the hearts I hand painted it using acrylic paints then topped it off with some Seche Vite.. I really love the way these came out :D

P.s ( do you guys mind the retro look on my pictures?)

Flower's For my Mother.

I am Officially on Spring Break mode! YAY! Lol, It's not that I don't like school, But knowing I have a break feels good! plus I will have more free time to blog something that I really enjoy! so on to the nails today I decorated my mother's nails she's been bugging me to do them for a while now, so with some extra time on my hands this is what I came up with :) (btw: i love doing flower nail art in case you haven't noticed lol plus it's spring so it's a great excuse to do so) :D
As Background I Used
Milani-Hottest Pink
This hot pink has blue reflects It looks better in the bottle lol
and for the flowers- Acrylic Paint
It is a much Softer shade in the bottle.
Oh Yeah Plus I did her Toes, but since I refuse to ever show pics of Feet on my blog (makes face) ill show you a close up of the design. In all honesty I like the way the same design came out on her toesies. I dont know why, maybe it's Because of the background color, since i wasn't too crazy about that Milani Polish Above. So here it is In Blue :)

Goodnight Ladies!
