Skin Food Queen’s Baking – Yule Log

It’s been a while since I’ve posted some Skin Food colours so here’s a simple yule log for the Christmas season.  I used the lighter brown as a base, then stamped the woodgrain pattern over it using the darker brown.  :D  Came out quite nicely I’d say.

Galaxy

Happy Hump Day everyone.  I’d like to apologise for the lack of postings – I sprained my ankle a week ago and haven’t really been in the mood (or able to climb up the shelves to get my nail polishes down) but I’m making an effort today with a little sparkle.  This was achieved by sponging on colours randomly, then adding the holo shimmer for that multitude of stars & finally, dotting on the big white stars.

Slash

TGIF people!  Today’s nail art offering is a very simple matte pink & gray gradient with a stamped slash pattern over.  I apologise for the smudging, I couldn’t be bothered to wait for the paint to dry completely before adding the matte topcoat over haha.  C’mon, everyone know my biggest pet peeve is waiting for polish to dry.  ;)

Christmas Came Early!

Happy Hump Day everyone!  Today, I have for you folks a lovely berry coloured polish from Seche that was gifted to me by a dear friend (early Christmas pressie she said <3 <3 <3 thanks so much, Yin) so of course I had to swatch it & nail art it up!  Gosh just look at the luscious colour!  This is 2 coats, no topcoat.

I started by stamping on a chevron pattern in black on the thumb & ring finger (also known in the nail art circles as accents) & adding on a matte topcoat, then adding some holographic & black glitter on the rest.
