Halloween nails

Standard

Hi everyone! I have a special Halloween nail art inspired by The Daily Nail. I absolutely adore her blog and her wonderful designs. Anyway, she did a spate of Halloween inspired nail art and this interesting one caught my eye. Check mine out!

The above pix was taken without flash. Anyway I painted a neutral colour as a base and before it dried, topped it with a thick coat of SV and sort of pushed it to smudge it for that ‘melting flesh’ effect. I then dotted it with a red for blood and mixed it up with a bit of yellow for pus.

I wanted to create a pus filled bleeding nail bed with melting flesh. Hope it totally grossed you out :p
Happy Halloween everyone! Trick or treat! ๐Ÿ™‚

Candy candy candy

Standard

Hi lovelies!! It’s a long weekend over here and I am determined to enjoy and max out the r and r.
Check this out! Candy Wrapper from Nail’d it unique(love the name). It’s a riot of colours suspended in a white jelly base. It’s two coats here over a white base.

I love the jelly white base. No issues with the flakies at all. Didnt even need to use the dabbing method. Doesn’t it remind you of fruity nougat?
I got this polish from the ever wonderfulmei mei. She ships worldwide except for Italy.
Thanks for reading and hope you like this polish! ๐Ÿ™‚

Happy Sunday all! Hope you all are enjoying your weekend. Sorry about the absence for Holothon but I am backkkk!

Check out the amazing linear holo of this baby! Confess it’s my fave holo of the month. Even with the blah weather today I can still see the linear holo indoors! The brush works great and no brush strokes or issues with application. The only problem is the polish does not seem to last, I had minor chipping after cleaning out my shoe cabinet.
Of course I cannot leave it along and sponged on a combination of glitter gal’s blue suede shoes and hits dark blue holo.

80s groove

Standard

Hi lovelies! Today I have a really interesting polish to show you. I used China Glaze’s Light As Air as a based and topped it with Candeo’s Zef.
Zef has matt chunky neon pink, cobalt blue squares and tiny flakes made out of black, pink and cobalt blue suspended in a clear base.

On with the nails!

Surprisingly, the effect of this looks like splatters of paint, very 21 jump street graffiti style of the 80s. Application of this was pretty easy but need to work fast as it dries really fast.
What do you think of this? Groovy? ๐Ÿ™‚
Candeo is available from Llarowe.

Teal Tuesday – shapes

Hi lovelies! I am super late for a quiet TT this week.
I used Barielle’s Island Breeze and sponged Sky’s The Limit over it. I love love love both of these Teals. Barielle’s has been really good to me. I love EVERYTHING about it! From the spread like butter formula, coverage to the brush! Love love love!

20121017-230503.jpg
I stamped a graphic pattern of squares and rectangulars since the theme of this week’s TT is – shapes.
Check it out!

Holothon – Marble

Standard

20121014-210814.jpg
Hello lovelies! Hope you all have or are having a great weekend.
Today I have for you something that I have been wanting to try for ages. A holo marble. I tested on a few of my holos and the conclusion is, use scattered holos as they are very thin and spreads easily. Holos like NuFu’s, make up store, Fnug have a pretty thick consistency and so cannot spread very well.
First up, check out the holo goodness of the Hits holo on its own.

I then used a combination of Milani scattered holo and a Korean branded black scattered holo for the marbling. My pics again cannot capture the duo chrome holo goodness of a blue holo based with a gold scattered holo flashing green bling of this marble.
Check it out!!

Teal Tuesday – black and white combo

It’s TT black and white today!! Ok I had to be the odd one out and added a spot of red…on top of the black and white. Hehee

I used Barielle’s End of the rainbow as a base. This is really sheer so this is four coats. I then topped it with All That Glitter’s Hole Hearted and Spottie Dottie Rosie. Hole Hearted is not the easiest to handle so I used the dabbing method to ensure I get a heart on each nail.
What do you think?
