Butter London

I bought these last Tuesday when Ulta was selling Butter Londons for buy one, get one free. I used my $3.50 off $10 purchase and so these totaled $10.50, or $5.25 a piece. For polishes that retail for $14, that's a steal! Love 'em both, too. Victoriana is the perfect moody teal and No More Waity, Katie is STUNNING. Elegant and modern and so darn pretty.

Crazy nails

Wore this to school today. Got my index finger's nail stuck in a door (don't ask) right before heading out, so it has a quick polish repairing job, with a short nail. Since this photo, I've filed down all my nails to match.

A funky french manicure with freehanded leopard print. Crazy? Yes. But I liked it. Inspired by

Yeah, I don't like that calendar thing... On another note- FRANKEN!

Yesterday, I was in a craft store. I recently decided that I'd like to franken more, and so I went on a mission to find glitter. I did, indeed, find glitter, but more on that later. What is more important, is that I found this. Gold leaf. And I put it in a clear base and now I'd like to have it on my nails forever. It's stunning.

So stunning, that I'd like to share. I was thinking about starting to mix my own frankens and sell them. This one would be included, of course, as I can't imagine not sharing it. There are some kinks to be worked out, like deciding whether the gold leaf needs to be cut finer. I like it blingy-er, like this, but maybe the pieces should be just a bit smaller. I also need to make an order for empty bottles. I don't want to spend that money if there'd be no buyers so, here's my question for y'all, would you buy this franken? I'm thinking about pricing them all at $7, except ones with gold leaf, which would be $10. Is that a good price?

Polish days 1-4

Here's my red, orange, yellow, and green for that polish calender thing. More to come, I promise!

The red is an OPI I bought at a nail salon, Edin-Burgundy. It's darker than the picture, a shade lighter and less purple than wine.

The orange is Color Club You Got Soul-ar. I hate the name. Hate it. It's more pink than the photo, but no where near coral. Cool glitter.

Essence's Sundancer is my yellow. I assure you, it's more orange. Not quite egg yolk, but more sunshine.

For green, I have Revlon Emerald. Formula was a bit runny, which tripped me up. I bought this at Target for $.25, so I can't complain.

Garden nails

You know that calendar I posted for the nail looks I was going to do? You know, my last post? Well... Uh..... I can't post any more during the week as I have school and studying and I like going for BIG, high impact nail-arty looks now. So. Uh. I'll try and swatch and catch up to that this weekend, okay?

I was going to replicate my gnome nails from ages ago, but after drawing the grass I felt rather lazy and just did flowers. These got SO much attention, it was insane. Everyone had to take a look.

If y'all want, I'll do a tutorial.

Trying something new

Hey all! I've decided that I'm going to try this for the month of September. I'm obviously a tad late, so I'll do a quick catch up post (right after I get my lazy butt off my chair and go find some polish)

Cheap Thrills

They rock! Forever 21 has nail polish (old news) that's scented (recent-ish news) and neon (new news!). Smelled like melon (its name, go figure) when it dried. So pretty. Sorry for the extended absence. I've been camping.
