MAC Ming Blue + OPI Gold Digger

I layered Sephora OPI Gold Digger Topcoat over MAC's Ming Blue...I've noticed that the Gold Digger dries almost a bit matte, so it killed the sparkliness of Ming Blue...I had to add another layer of MAC's topcoat to make my manicure shiny again...but I really liked this manicure it reminded me of a sparkly night was subtle yet definitely stood out...just wish the OPI topcoat wasn't so mattifying...=(

Sprinkles and Sparkles on Unicorn Barf

I decided to add Sparkle Me Silver topcoat from Sephora OPI onto my unicorn barf manicure...i loved the way the long glitters added even more sparkley uberness onto my already super sparkly manicure...unfortunately the only pic i took was on my phone which doesnt at all show how extra sparkly it made it look...I loved this manicure and was quite sad when it started chipping haha

Unicorn Vomit Marble

I wanted princess-y rainbow happy unicorn rainbows so I painted my nails baby pink, baby blue, and neon pink for the base and marbled Sally Hansen HD collection over them...I decided to make the base diff colors so that my nails would look more rainbowey...since depending on the base color the marble comes out differently, I figured having different base colors would give my nails a wider variety of colors...

I used the exact same colors to marble with as my last marble manicure where I marbled them over Essie - Sew Pysched...what a huge diff the base color makes huh...this one is all rainbowy and colorey while the last manicure looked like oil spills...I loved this manicure it was so fun and summery =D

OPI DS Glamour - Blue Holo Gorgeousness

So I actually had this post written out last week and had the pics and everything...only I decided to upload an extra pic and while waiting for it to upload, let my friend use my laptop...he asked me if he could close all my windows and I told him no...through some type of miscommunication the jerk closed all my pages so I've been too lazy to retype up the post and upload the pics again haha...but anyway...this is OPI Glamour from their designer's the most gorgeous holographic blue...I couldn't stop staring at my nails when I had this on =D the holographicness is just so...mesmerizing and strong...I only took quick pics of it but these pics definitely don't do it justice...I think some of the other bloggers have better pics to show it's holographicness, but I think my pics do a good job showing what it looks like in lighting where you can't see the holo-ness as much...which I find mind boggling how pretty it is even when its not straight on holo-ing in your face =P

Sally Hansen HD water marble

I marbled all of Sally Hansen's HD Laser collection + OPI My Private Jet over my Essie Sew Psyched manicure and this is what came out...I love looks like a oil slick or like I have foils on my's a bit more subtle than normal water marbles and you can see how sheer the colors are in the flash pics, but in normal and outdoor lighting my nails just look like oil slicks...I'll definitely be re-creating this manicure often in the future =D I got laxy for a couple of my nails and just dunked two fingers into the water marble for some of them...hence the crappy unmarbly fingers...but I think it made it even more oil-slicky looking since none of them are perfect...I still havent managed to get down the water marbling technique =( but i'm liking my crappy ones anyway =D

Neon Paint Splattters

So I was looking at the Wah Nails website and got inspired to do these nails...I used the China Glaxe Poolside collection for the neon parts and dabbed some white to make it stand out more...I really loved these nails they turned out awesome....they remind me of a tye-dye tshirt all i did was smear different colored neons onto my nails while they were still wet and dab the white on top to break up all the intense neon colors...then I used the Sally Hansen art pen in black to draw in the paint splashes and peace signs

Inspiration from

Deborah Lippmann - Across The Universe

I'm sure ya'll already know what polish this is sooo beautiful I can't stop staring at my nails =D I love that the glitter makes your fingers sparkle green and blue flashes when you're moving around...application was awesome as usual...I used 3 thin coats here but 2 thick coats would've been fine I think
