Blue Textured Patchwork Nails

There comes a point where stamping is too hard and the prospect of doing another striped, dotted or average taped mani just isn't interesting.  I literally (literally!) have an entire reusable shopping full of polish and yet deciding what to do can be extremely tough.  The solution? Browse all the blogs! I really should use that more, it is the meme after which my blog is named.... Anyway, I found myself on Chloe's Nails and just had to try one of her "Patchwork" manis.  I wanted a twist though: have each be a different texture, rather than colour!

To start off, I added two coats of Rimmel Black Satin - my go-to black - and added a thin coat of Seche Vite on the top to help it dry.  Once it looked dry, I WAITED FIVE MORE MINUTES.  I have ruined way too many manis not waiting an extra five minutes.  Then, I cut two squares of tape to create my first two squares.  I added the polish, added Seche Vite and WAITED FIVE MORE MINUTES.  Repeat for the second two squares, this time making sure to cover the previous two exactly for a neat finish.  

My polishes, clockwise, from top left: Lacquistry Winter No. 1, LA Colours Unique, Orly Sweet Peacock and Maybelline Demin Dash.  







The Verdict: OMG I love how this turned out.  I'm very proud of myself for adding the texture in there, I'm totes awesome! :D:D:D

  1. Glitterazzi's Glitter tattoos are water resistant and 100% safe for the skin and toxic free.
    We use only cosmetic grade glitter and FDA approved body glue to paint on dazzling images.
    Remember the glue softens when wet so pat dry gently after a shower or the pool.
    Avoid putting oil or lotion on the area of your tattoo and do not scrub soap,
    lotion or oil on it as that will remove it.Relevant Backlink
    Temporary Glitter Tattoos that are not on your hand may last a little longer.

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!
