aikolynn: (Jessica - Flowers)
So I'm back to updating.  Sort of.  RL got in the way coupled with pure laziness which resulted in a time lapse between entries, pictures, andtumblr posts.  Our queue ran out of images...and because Janelle was in Hawaii with me we weren't taking pictures.  Heh.  Hopefully wecan build up the queue again since Julie may be sending in more images. *hint hint*

I wore this mani back in early July...right before my friend's wedding.  So...probably July 19th.

Colors Used:

  • Sinful Colors - Rise & Shine
  • Candeo Colors - Mallard

For Bethy's wedding I decided to try out 3D nail art.  It was terribly flashy and a hindrance, but really neat looking.  I hated the nail glue I used since it bled into my cuticles and crusted there.  Plus it was so difficult to get off!  However, I do love the way these look and they were such statement nails.  Terribly crazy.



Gosh, I don't even really remember what polish colors I used...I think it was all Sinful Colors though.

Custom Mixed Color

Here's a custom mixed color I created.  Originally it was supposed to be The Dark Arts, but I added too much holo bar glitter for my liking.  We'll see what this becomes...if I ever get around to changing it.  It may be hard to see, but the black base has a fine green shimmer glitter in it...

I dug up OPI's Absolutely Alice, one of my first and favorite OPI polishes.  I actually own three bottles of this since I love it so much (and it's discontinued).  Unfortunately my first bottle is pretty much unusable...so thick no matter how many times I thin it.  So I moved onto my second bottle.  It was terribly gorgeous, but it chips really fast.  Took a shower after wearing this for a night and a day and it was chipped.  Cleaned a fish tank that same night and it chipped further.  It's safe to say that I took it off completely and am now wearing something else.  However, it's still a favorite of mine.  ^^  ..and my poor pinky nail! D:

I'm in love with a England polishes.  They're highly pigmented, cover in 1.5 coats, and are just amazing.  I would love to own them all someday, but, for now, I only have six from both the Mythicals and Legends collections.


These are my two newest polishes from a England.  I purchased them when they had their promotion after achieving 5K facebook likes (polishes were  £ 5; normally they're  £ 9).  These two aren't listed on Llarowe so I decided to get them.  I would have gotten Holy Grail, but I was being cheap.


This is my collection. ^^
 
I'm actually currently wearing King Arthur.  The wear on it is incredible.  I had my hands wet practically the entire day and there isn't a chip in sight!

These are a few of the colors I mixed from suspension base, micas, and pigments.

This polish is one that I won from Llarowe when she was having a giveaway.  It's a gorgeous purple holographic polish (more of a red-based purple than a blue one).  Hey, just because I'm on a polish-buying ban doesn't mean I can't win it!  ...or get it as a gift.  Or buy it for someone else as a gift.  ;D

Rainbow Honey had a promotion for free shipping (they charge a flat rate of $5.95 for shipping) so I decided to pick up the entire Equestira Collection in the mini 7ml bottles.  Half of these are gifts (I won't say who is getting what) so don't judge me!  These were also bought way in advance of my polish buying ban so I'm safe.  I'm also absolutely in love with the packaging and detail paid to the RH polishes.  Aren't they cute?!  I already own The Worst Possible Thing in the full sized bottle so I'll also include those images here.

It isn't about "like," but about "love."

When I call you, drunk, and speak of my love for you, all you have to do is listen.
