Sephora by OPI

I haven't posted in awhile cause my camera memory was full and I keep forgetting to clear out the pics so I've been using my phone...

I wanted some funky colors for this manicure, so I chose this super dark grey, green tinted greyed teal, and orange...the teal is Sephora by OPI - Ocean Love Potion...I've been wanting Rescue Beauty Lounge's Surf Collection and ordered it awhile back, but since it hasn't been shipped out yet, I figured this color would have to do for now...I havent seen the RBL colors in person, but from swatches online, Ocean Love Potion seems to be similar to RBL 360...anyway, all three colors are amazing i love them =)

Purple Marble Manicure

I decided I wanted to do a marbling effect to make it look like marble stone (not water marbling) so I dotted white and the Sally Hansen purple over the Essie Purple...the first hand I tried it on was my left, didn't turn out like how i wanted, second hand was when i started doing it at a angle and acheived that marble look...unfortunately i'm outside right now so i don't know the names of the colors off the top of my head...i also added a thin border of the glittery Lippmann polish, altho i did a whole border on my left and only my tips on my right...which looks better guys? all around or just the tips?

Urban Outfitters Sponge Manicure

For this manicure, I used Urban Outfitter's Blue4 and Pink 2. These two colors were both jellys and I used 2 coats for both. I then sponged on black with a eyeshadow brush. I put on square rhinestones, and being the idiot that I am, decided to go play basketball + football without putting on a topcoat on the rhinestones...I came home and both my middle fingers and pinkys were missing rhinestones haha...I'm actually a lil suprised all 10 didn't fall off...anyway this was just a fun/easy manicure

Deborah Lippmann I'm Not Innocent + Wake up in Vegas Manicure

I was so excited to find Deborah Lippman's new colors at Nordstroms the other day, so I picked up I'm Not Innocent (Peachy Nude) , Wake up in Vegas (Beigy Grey) , and My Old Flame (Siren Red)

I love love love LOVE these colors they are all so gorgeous...I usually have a hard time with reds and nudes because I hate how these colors make my hands look red...but I'm Not Innocent and My Old Flame made my hands look so pretty and delicate...the one word that kept popping up in my head when I saw these two colors was "elegant"
