Tiny Sparkles #1: Caviar

Today (& tomorrow) I’ll be doing something that I don’t usually do – crystal adornments. But time was of the essence lately (work & new sewing hobby taking up a lot of my time) & it was the simplest thing I could put on my sponge gradient. Today’s tiny sparkle is a caviar bead. 😀 I’ll have a different one for tomorrow so don’t forget to come back for it!

Feature: Nubar’s Silver Sword

Hey all, I’m back! I’ve been chasing a new hobby (sewing – it’s sew awesome, lol) & I actually forgot to update this blog last week. :p Anyway, I’m not apologsing anymore, so I’ll get straight to it.
Today’s Feature is from Nubar called Silver Sword from their Fortress collection. It’s a frosty charcoal-silver colour, a smidge difficult on the application since it literally shows every single brushstroke if you don’t have a steady hand but overall a very lovely colour. This was 3 coats (strangely ‘airy’ formula), no topcoat (you can see how glossy it is) & all 3 coats dried in 5 minutes. Yep. SUPER FAST.

As for the nail art, I didn’t want to take away too much from Silver Sword, so I just added some gold & silver glitter to make starbursts. 😀
Lacquers used:
OPI Goldeneye​ (gold glitter)
​China Glaze Nova (silver holo glitter)

That’s all for today folks, I’ll be back again tomorrow with some brand new stuff!

Easter – Which Came First?

BLESSED EASTER EVERYONE! Whether you worship the risen God or the abundance of chocolate, I hope you have a good one. I made some very traditional nail art in the form of spotty coloured eggs & newly hatched chicks (complete with a feather cowlick) to ask the age old question – which came first? :p
