Ocean Nails

Sunday, April 8th, 2012 01:08 am

So this is the second polish attempt out of four this past week.  I deemed them ocean nails due to the color--my favorite from Sephora by OPI.
 

Colors Used:
  • Sephora by OPI - Mermaid to Order
  • China Glaze - Atlantis

Sadly, these were gone in a day.  Apparently my nails, like me, were unhappy this week. *sighs*  Well, the nails I have on now--ones that I did specially for my sister's Bridal Shower--are cooperating so far. =_=;  Post to follow shortly!

Glitter bomb

Saturday, January 28th, 2012 09:02 am
aikolynn: (Jihyo - Reading Minds)
 This isn't anything fancy and it was completely unplanned.  It started when I was typing out my polish list when I had the urge to test out my Absolutely Alice polish.  I had planned to leave my nails bare until tomorrow and do color blocked nails...but it somehow turned into this.

Yes, that is a different glitter polish on each finger.  I have to admit...Absolutely Alice is probably my all-time favorite glitter polish.  I hardly wear it due to the fact that it's discontinued and really difficult to find at a reasonable price...I really wish I had bought a backup or two of this!  The glitter is so packed into the polish that this is two coats...all the other nails, except Midnight Mambo which is in a blue base, are three.

Please excuse my terrible cuticles on my right hand...I haven't been using my hand cream like I should... especially since I handle a lot of paper at work. 

Colors Used
  • Left Hand
    • OPI - Teenage Dream
    • China Glaze - Skyscraper
    • China Glaze - Atlantis
    • OPI - Absolutely Alice
    • OPI - Rainbow Connection
  • Right Hand
    • Sephora by OPI - Midnight Mambo
    • OPI - Mad As A Hatter
    • China Glaze - Nova
    • China Glaze - Lorelei's Tiara
    • OPI - Fresh Frog of Bel Air
I was thinking of throwing a coat of black shatter over it to tone it down...what do you think?

[edit: 6:38am, 01-29-12]
The glitter bomb that was this manicure has peeled off.  It only lasted through one day of me doing really basic things--eating, showering, sleeping, reading, typing.  Maybe I will be doing color block nails after all. =_=;;;

--Cheryl
aikolynn: (Sulli - Snow White)
 Yes, another nail post.  Those blasted splatter nails peeled off and I've been wanting to try this idea I've had floating around in my head.  I gathered a bunch of polish (which made me realize I own mostly glitters and shimmers) and painted random streaks of color over my silver holo base.  I topped it off with black crackle which reveals the different colors yet unifies the whole look.  Amazing.  This would look amazing with neon colors!
I love this look!  What's great is that the colors don't have to be neat--just go with it.  The only thing, and I keep saying this, is the pulling from the Seche Vite top coat.  It's irritating, but this is one of the nicest, glossy fast drying top coats I've seen.  *sighs*  Sometimes I just think about buying a damn UV dryer and some UV top coat.

Colors Used
  • OPI - DS Coronation (base)
  • OPI - DS Magic
  • OPI - The One That Got Away
  • OPI - Teenage Dream
  • OPI - Black Shatter
  • OPI by Sephora - High Maintenance
  • Sephora - Curacoa
  • China Glaze - Coconut Kiss
  • China Glaze - Emerald Sparkle
I love this, but would you try it?

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.
