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.
212b
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. :D

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

Don’t Bee Negative

Happy Fri-yay all! Today is a Good day (geddit?) & since it’s Easter this weekend, I’ve done some Easter-ish/spring season-ish nail art to celebrate! Although these are negative space nail art (acheived with the use of striping tape), take a lesson from the happy bee (hapbee?) & smile!

Feature: Seche Perfectly Poised (with Tea Leaves)

I promised I’d come back with Part 2 so here it is along with a new Feature polish!
211b
Today I’m showcasing Seche’s Perfectly Poised which is a creamy pastel yellow creme. If you are a user of Seche Vite Fast Dry Topcoat, you’d know the formula would be jsut as awesome. Thick but not gloopy, it gave opaque coverage in 2 buttery smooth coats. Dry time was fast (under 2 minutes) & it dries glossy.

As for the nail art, yesterday it was Coffee Beans, today it’s Tea Leaves!

Coffee Beans

Happy Monday all. If you’re anything like a lot of caffeine addicted people I know, then these little beans are life giving for you… This is a 2 part series, so tomorrow I will be showcasing another life giving plant (in a Feature too, whee!) but in the meantime, have some coffee.

Feature: China Glaze’s Coconut Kiss

Hey everyone, sorry about the week long silence again (I seem to be doing this apologising things a lot this year) but I got coerced into making a costume for a comic con & that took up an entire week (I didn’t even have time to do my nails, THE HORRORS!) but it was done & over with FINALLY.
205a
So without further ado, I duly present this week’s Feature! It’s a lovely rich purple from China Glaze called Coconut Kiss, slightly shimmery but not metallic, more like a micro glass fleck sort of shimmer. Formula was amazing – totally opaque in 2 coats, smooth flowing & buttery & dry time was fast. It dried to a glossy finish, no topcoat required. :D

Finally, I added a random orchid floral pattern with falling petals.
