Droidddd

I seriously can’t remember where I saw this design from. But looking at it now, it looks awful! It was so hard to do the zigzags and paint the droid guy.  LOL oh well at least I tried!

My First Attempt at Water Marbling

My first was actually awesome! It was a lot of trial and error but fun. I would highly recommend using your cheaper polish for this experience since it does use quite a bit of polish for each nail.

The Most Expensive Bottle of Nail Polish I Own To Date

Over the past several months, I have read countless nail blogs. Tons of women out there upload pictures and talk about which polishes are better than others. I seriously saw this on a couple blogs and I had never heard of it. Magnetic Nail Polish. But I really did not research much about it at all. I had only read that most people got it at Sephora. Perfect! I was going to actually be at a mall that would have a Sephora. Man I was stoked…until I saw the price. $16.95 each!! I couldn’t believe it. I had never paid that much for nail polish and didn’t know if I should pay that. But for the love of nails, I had to.

 

So I bought the polish, in what i think is kinda a Tim Burtonish purple (Nightmare Before Christmas, maybe?) and I was happy in the end. As soon as I got home I put it on immediately. And. It. Was. Awesome. Even the color before you use the magnet is cooling looking. I think now that I’ve been looking around at all these different kinds of polishes, you can buy a magnetic polish in a cheaper brand.

But seriously, if you’re going to buy one, buy Nails Inc. It’s definitely worth the money!

Cherry Blossoms

My husband and I went to Washington DC for the weekend and I thought this would be appropriate. I used Bonita Aqua Marine for the background and various pinks for the blossoms.

Champagne kisses

This design also came from Nailed it Blog (can you tell I follow her pretty closely, eh?) She does some great stuff! Anyway this was done with Essie Black and Bonita Champagne Shimmer. I think this kinda looks cool especially since I tend to wear a lot of black to work. Next time I might try actually taping it off so the edge of the gold is a little cleaner.
