Things that make me laugh

Seven visitors to my blog have been led here by the search "that awkward moment when nobody cares". I'm so happy to have all this apathy?

Yeah, that made me giggle.

Anyway, here's a water-marble. It's not great looking, I rather unfortunately double marbled and smudged, when I should have a) left it alone and b) been patient, but it looked alright when not under a macro lens. 

Some people tell me they don't have nice nails because they can only buy cheap nail polish. Well, this look costs a total of $2 (if you want to get fancy and buy topcoat, that's available for an additional $1), and that's when it's not on sale. With our Rite Aid card and general sales I think this might've been $1.50 worth of products.  Wet n Wild French White Creme and whatever they call their black. And then a plastic cup, toothpick, bit of tape, and water from a tap.

So, yeah, you don't need to buy pricey indie polishes to have pretty nails (though it'd be lovely if you bought mine).

It's still sunny here

Errr, well, it was. And then it started raining so hard the roads flooded and we almost beat some records. Anyway, when it was sunny, I took these pictures. 

OPI Sanderella. A hard to find and super pretty purple holographic polish. I can post a comparison of my purple holos if you're interested, it'd just take awhile to edit and I don't want to do that if no one really cares.


Talk about late to the party. Wow. The OPI sorbets are so pretty, why didn't I get any when they first came out?! Guy Meets Gal-Vaston is a corally color that is pretty enough on but it's really Too Pink to Hold 'Em that's my favorite. It looks like raspberries.

A bit of Zoya to brighten up your day

I found these all in the clearance section of my Ulta. Good thing, too, as I was ready to shell out retail for Yara and Neeka! Avery is pretty and nude, though a bit too cool for me, I think. Yara photographs beautifully but I'm not as enamored in person. Still pretty, though. Neeka's going to be my pedicure for all of summer, I bet. So gorgeous.

Wowza

This is BRIGHT. I've professed my love for Color Club before and I'm not stopping anytime soon. The Lime Starts Here is a lime scented neon green polish. So pretty and bright and summery. 

I love Color Club. I love them so much.


Taking advantage of the sunlight

It was sunny so I wore China Glaze LOL. Gorgeous.

Okay, this is pretty cool...

I got these in the mail a few days ago and let me tell you, I was EXCITED. I had seen swatches on a blog or two and had no clue how on earth these new crackles worked. Well...

Firstly, they all come in two packs, one white base and one crackle. The crackle is where the magic happens (to prove it, I've swatched over silver in the second pic. That's Zoya Trixie, by the way). One crackle's purple (Remix), one's green (DJ Spinner), one's yellow (Emcee Me), and one's orange (Rave). They all appear as their respective colors but with black crack on top. It's hard to explain, so just look at the pictures!

The idea with these is to create art: rough, 80s street style art. You can apply them a whole bunch of ways and in any combination. 

My verdict? I kind of adore it. Yes, it's a bit gimmicky and yes, you've seen crackle polish 10000x before, but this seems new and different and the result is actually really cool. I've worn them out a bit and no complaints here!

Chugging Along

Hey, all! I haven't been posting very frequently as I've been SO busy with my polish brand (see it here). I've been working pretty hard to make some unique colors, to the mainstream as well as indie circuit. It's not easy but it's so much fun. The looks on people's faces when they put try one of my polishes for the first time ever is priceless :)

An Ode to Color Club

Oh Color Club, how I love thee. Simply the best glitters and neons ever. Whenever I do skittles, I always reach for my trusty Color Clubs because they all just go together. Except for the blue provided in this set, it sucks. So instead I used a Forever 21 brand blue glitter.

I don't remember any of the names off the top of my head, but I can look them up if anyone really cares.

That awkward moment when....


Your magnetic polish won't magnetize. Um. Nails Inc is VERY magnetic, as you can see by the silver stripes across the nail. The Layla... not so much. In fact, it hardly works at all! Of the two, you only need one as they're so similar, get Nails Inc Trafalgar Square. Black Metal just looks... black.
