Stripy Water Marble feat. OPI Live Love Carnavale


Hello all!  I wanted to try a water marble that was really stripy with thinner stripes than I usually do, so I grabbed a few random colours and got started.



I began with two coats of Sation Strumming My Nails for a white base, then water marbled with OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls, OPI Do You Lilac It?, China Glaze For Audrey and OPI Live Love Carnavale.



I really like how this turned out, I'll definitely be trying the design again with some different colours!

Crowstoes Vanaheim


Hi all!  Here's a swatch of Crowstoes Vanaheim, a lovely multichrome polish with colour-shifting microglitter.



I'm wearing one coat of Vanaheim over A England Camelot (black creme).  This does dry quite gritty so use a thick top coat or a glitter tamer for a smooth finish.

Blue Brush Stroke Gradient


Hello all!  I I wore this manicure ages ago for a trip and it lasted me about a week.


I started with two coats of Picture Polish Swagger, a pretty light blue creme, then used brush strokes with Sinful Colors Endless Blue and OPI Eurso Euro to achieve a messy gradient.  I really like how it turned out - the top coat smoothed if out a lot and brought it all together.

Purple-Blue Dotticure


Hi all!  I wore this sweet dotticure a while ago - I made the dots quite small so it took a while, but it was definitely worth it.



I started with two coats of Sation Lollipop Goes The Princess, then dotted using Glam Polish Dancing In The Moonlight, Picture Polish Wisteria and Sinful Colors Why Not.

Color Club Harp On It


Hi all, long time no see!  For various reasons I'm going to have to take the blog on hiatus for an indefinite amount of time, unfortunately.  I'll definitely miss being part of the nail polish community in this way.  Before I go I have a backlog of posts and photos so I'll steadily be clearing them, but after that posting will be sporadic at best.



So away we go - here's a swatch of Color Club Harp On It, a glorious silver holographic.  Two perfect coats!
