31 Day Challenge 2014: *29*

The flags just might've been spooked away (but probably not) thanks, in part, to these nails which just happen to be inspired by THE SUPERNATURAL...

Ghost Cybermen Manicure

Polishes Used:

1 Coat Beauty Secrets Ridge Filler
1 Coat Wet N Wild Echo Dark
3/4 Coat Bonita Dying To Party
3/4 Coat Pure Ice Kiss Me Here
Sinful Colors Black on Black (eyes)

Oddly enough, these nails look nothing like what inspired them. Hard to imagine with my stellar artistic talent, huh? My original vision was to create Ghost Cybermen on each of my nails. You know, the ones from Doctor Who Series 2, Episode 12, "Army of Ghosts?" You know, those harmless looking "ghosts..." brought to London by Torchwood?

Oh, I know what you're thinking, because I thought it too when I first saw them. They don't seem so scary, right? Well, no, not until they want to give you an upgrade! You can keep your brain, but that's literally it.

So yeah. I wanted to do some sort of Doctor Who inspired nail art during this challenge, given the fact that I started watching the series based on the musings of several fangirls who also blog about their nails. The polish blogging community really is a wondrous thing!

Day 30 is next, and the finish line is back on the horizon folks! Nails inspired by A TUTORIAL coming your way in 5... 4... 3...

Fishbowl Friday 073 // Recreation

Every now and then, I enjoy looking back over past manicures. Creatively, it's just neat to see how far I've come since the days I started. Oddly enough, when I chose this prompt, I knew exactly which manicure I wanted to recreate. Based loosely on Fishbowl Friday 027 , today's seriotype nails are a RECREATION ...  Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 3 Coats China Glaze Violet Vibes Essie Leggy Legend Pahlish Autumn People Pure Ice Get in Line SinfulShine Konstellation 2 Coats SinfulColors Clear Coat 1 Coat Seche Vite Looking back, I can honestly say that my seriotype game has come far since I first learned the method. One of the things that took me a while to master was the balance of nail polish finishes. While seriotypes made exclusively with creme polishes look cool, those made with a combination of different finishes really pop. There's more depth involved when you layer a metallic over a jelly neon and

Polishes Used: 1 Coat Fingerpaints Smooth Over Ridge Filler 5 Coats daniPro Forever Girl* 1 Coat daniPro Clear Top Cover* 1 Coat Seche Vite I'm never one to pass up a pink polish and if the name of this doesn't say it all, the color definitely does! This is quite possibly the most perfect shade of light pink I've come across. And you all know how I love the color pink! <3 In case you missed my review of First Kiss , daniPro polishes were created by Manhattan Podiatrist Dr. Gary Evans. The formula is 5-free and the polishes are recognized by the American Podiatric Medical Association to promote good foot health. Forever Pink is more of a crelly polish, so I had to use 5 coats to build up to the opacity you see in the pictures. Because of the sheer formula, it was a little patchy until about the 4th coat. But once this polish is opaque, it's a really gorgeous shade of pink and the crelly finish really made it shine. I've been into lighter sha

Fishbowl Friday 072 // Hard Candy

We're going to skip that whole part where we talk about how it's been a while, because well, it's been a really long while. I'm still trying to work out how to make room for blogging and juggle everything else, and it's definitely been a challenge. But know that I am working on it, and I do really, really miss it. This place has been my Quantum of Solace for a long time, and I'm not planning on letting it go anytime soon. That being said... for this week's prompt, I was happily surprised when I pulled HARD CANDY . This is probably one of the most iconic brands of nail polish, and it's certainly gone through it's own number of changes throughout the years. Who didn't want to own a bottle of Sky once they saw it on Alicia Silverstone's nails way back in the 90's? Last year, Hard Candy celebrated their 20th anniversary by bringing back some of their most iconic shades. The collection was a mix of five original shades and three new ones.
