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!

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?

Teal Tuesday – Braid

Standard

20120807-010156.jpg

Hi sweets! It’s Teal Tuesday! Ok I am really early this week 🙂
The theme for this week is braid nails. Not exactly my favorite type of nail art and this is my first attempt. Excuse the wonky lines.
I used a combination of A-England’s Avalon (a wonderful deep purple), Barielle’s Island Breeze and Sally Hansen’s Dazzling Diamond.20120807-011335.jpg20120807-011329.jpg20120807-011324.jpg20120807-011318.jpg20120807-011313.jpg20120807-011306.jpg
To me braid nails are really tough. You need to have a good one coater else it will become pretty thick and hard to control. To make things worse, I got mixed up with the order and messed up a couple of times :p
What do you all think? Love this teal from Barielle and A-england. Excellent formulas and application!

Summer’s In!

Hi lovelies!! The only thing to cheer me up on a Sunday night …. Bright mani mania!

I used Barielle’s Buddah-full as a base and used bright neon-ish summer colors for tips.
The colors I used for the tip starting from the thumbs are – ChinaGlaze’s Flip Flop Fantasy, CG’s Flying Dragon ( love this name!), Three Beauties Neon Orange, Neon Green and Neon yellow.

Barielle Island Breeze

Standard

Hi there, I realized I have tons of polish waiting for me to swatch!!! Arghhhh too many polishes and too little time. Ah well..
As mentioned in my earlier post, I used Island Breeze from Barielle as a base for my panda nails.
I like this polish a lot. For a host of reasons. It’s 3 free, it covers in two coats and the formula is great to work with. Not too runny or thick.

Check out the color in the bottle

There is a lovely lagoon shimmer to the color and shifts subtly from blue to turquoise shimmer. Love it!
For interest I topped this with two coats of Étude House large purple shimmer.

Panda nail

Standard

Friends who know me know that lately I have been really in to Chinese drama starring a particular Mr Nicky Wu droolahem respect. Anyhoo, the fanclub people call him the panda warrior and fan galspeople who respect his work pandas. Hence the inspiration for this particular nail art.

I did two versions for this design. One with Milani 3D holographic 509 and one with Barielle Island Breeze. Both look amazing. I love the formula for both as they cover well in just two coats and look at the colors!
