Guest Post #2: Missy from Gnarly Gnails!

Heyyoooooo! It's been a couple days again, time for another guest post! These are more fun to write on holiday, after a bottle of wine and a good meal, especially if you didn't have to do your nails yourself.  It's quite the problem when you have a nail polish blog with over 200 posts and your mother is doing her nails before you, albeit in a coral frost, much to my disgust.  Anyway, take it away Miss from Gnarly Gnails!

ey there all you friends of Laura and her great blog. My name is Missy and I do the blog 'Gnarly Gnails'. I like to predominantly do nail art and that is what I'll be showing you today as I hijack Laura's blog.

For this look I started out with a base of China Glaze Recycle.

Then I added J'Adore by Icing and did the Saran Wrap method where I pulled the polish off with a scrunched up plastic baggie to give it a "marble" look.

Coated that with a nice thick coat of Seche Vite and when it was dry I added some large dots with a dotting tool and China Glaze Aquadelic. 

A little green acrylic paint for the leaves and then my Sally Hansen nail art pen in black to draw in the rose designs and outlines.

I finished the look off with some sporadic polka dots using Milani Yellow Whiz and then a final coat of Seche Vite to smooth it all out.

This was actually my first time doing the marbling method described above, as well as drawing freehand roses - hope you enjoyed it!!






The Verdict:  Love it, thanks so much Missy!

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. 

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....

31DC2014 Day 17: Glitter! AKA OH GOD THE CRUSHING PRESSURE

The challenge isn't going super well for me.  I could do it, but it's bringing up this whole complex mess of procrastination, pressure and something undefinable that makes me just want to avoid doing it.  I feel like I'm rebelling when I don't do a day.  Screw you Past Laura, you can't tell me what to do!  Add the pressure of choosing something for "Glitter", well, that's clearly not going to be done on time.  It's late, but look, rainbows!
