Layered Roses over Nude

So after the success of yesterday's snakeskin stamping mani I had to try something else.  A long time ago I had fun layering the same stamp in different colours and I wanted to try that again.  I wanted something a little subtle, a little girly so roses it is!

Starting off I added two coats of my new favourite neutral Orly Pure Porcelain.  Using plate BM14 from Bundle Monster, I rolled on the roses.  I found that after my thumb it was best to start with the light colours first.  Using Joe Fresh White, I added two roses to each nail.  Next, the same with Sally Hansen Insta-Dry Silver Sweep.  Finally, Wet 'n' Wild Black Creme.  







The Verdict: I love how this came out, despite most of these being overexposed cos my camera hates neutrals almost as much as it hate reds and neons.  Super girly, it makes a nice change from my usual mega glitter :)

  2. I have Orly Pure Porcelain, it's one of my absolute favorite polishes to use as base for stamping on top. I am definetly going to have to try this out since I have that nail plate too. I love how you have layered the roses with different tones.

NEON FLOWER EYE MELTY GOODNESS

Alrighty!  So I recently got a hold of some very interesting flower glitter as a sample for the shop .  In the past I've stayed away because I've found it really hard to work with because it either won't lay flat or it's too thick or it sticks up or something, and generally just hasn't really been worth it.  UNTIL NOW.  Now, not only is this glitter thin enough to behave it also literally explodes under blacklight.  LOOK AT IT.  Makes me want to carry around my blacklight bulb all the time...more....

An Abstract Field of Tulips

I tell you, it's getting harder and harder to come up with different nails to do.  I have a pile of polish to swatch but I get bored just doing a colour and talking about it.  Pondering what to do last night, my eyes alighted on acrylic paints...yessss.  As I'm not especially good painting but do have a large amount of patience for repetitive tasks like dots, dots it is! Inspired by a mental image something like this , I thought, why not rainbows?  I like starting with a black base so I first applied two coats of my favourite shiny black, Rimmel Black Satin.  Taking my tiniest dotting tool, I initially started with a red polish.  Red doesn't show up on black too well so I switched to acrylic paints.  I did a block of dots at a time in each of the rainbow colours.  The result, a colourful abstract field of tulips!

3D Glitter Cubes Over Orly Smoked Out

Ok!  So.  Stuff.  I've had an interesting few weeks lately.  My mum came to visit and we got to surprise her with a trip to Curacao and it was so awesome.  I saw soo many fish, seriously, if you like diving or snorkeling even a little it's like paradise.  All this plus work means blogging is hard so here's something I did a little while ago.  It's glitter, but it doesn't take a million years to do.  Hooray! Sparklies, stuff, blah let's go.
