China Glaze Foie Gras and Boundary of Memory

Hey everyone! I'm coming at you with a super short post! It has plenty of photos though! I put this polish combo on and absolutely loved it and wanted to share it with you! I haven't been sharing too many swatches lately, but I want to start getting into the habit of photographing everything that goes onto my nails. Even if it's not too exciting... or if I've worn it a million times before.

I decided to wear China Glaze Foie Gras and China Glaze Boundary Of Memory. I applied 2 coats of Foie Gras over all of my nails and then I put one coat of Boundary Of Memory on my ring finger nail. The glitter is so full coverage and thick (the good kind of thick) and I absolutely love it! I topped everything off with Zoya's Armor top coat which isn't my favorite... but I had it sitting right next to me and I figured I'd use it.

That's about it! Nothing too exciting, but I really liked the combo. :) I hope everyone is having a great evening! or day.. or... whenever you're reading this. Basically, have a great day!

Ombre Frosting Drip Nail Art + Tutorial

Hey everyone! I hope you're all having a great Monday! I have frosting drip nails to share with you today. I wore this design on my 22nd birthday in December, but I didn't take photos or record a tutorial. I could have kicked myself too. The best nail art always happens when I don't photograph or record it. Oh well! I decided to recreate it, and although it's not as good as the first time, it still looks cool. I know a lot of people have done nail art like this before, and it's nothing new, but I thought everyone would be interested in seeing it anyway.

I decided to use China Glaze It's a Trap-Eze for the frosting and it was a terrible idea. It was so difficult to work with because there's so much glitter in that polish that it gets super chunky as it dries. All of the colors I used in this design are in the photo above and they're all by China Glaze
From left to right:
  • Be More Pacific
  • Shore Enuff
  • Too Yacht To Handle
  • Wait N' Sea
  • I Sea The Point
  • It's a Trap-Eze!
I also used Butter London's Matte Finish top coat as well as Out The Door top coat. I applied the "frosting" with a dotting tool because it was the easiest way to apple it since it was chunky, and then I outlined it with black acrylic paint using a small nail art brush.

I that's all I have to say about this design. If you want to see exactly how I did this, feel free to watch the video tutorial below. :) Have a great week everyone!

Blue Water Marble and Half Gradient With Studs + Tutorial

Hello lovely blog readers! Today I have blue and white nails! Water marbles... Gradients... Studs... All the good stuff. I think these are pretty awesome, but I might be a little biased since I tend to like most of the things I post here. I don't have too much to say about this design other than to tell you what I used, so I'll jump right into it.

I started with Wedding Dress by Motives Cosmetics on all of my nails. It's a fantastic white polish! If you haven't had a chance to try Motives nail polish, then I definitely think you should! They're amazing!

On my index and middle fingers I did a water marble and it turned out SO well! I love the way the colors blended together. I used three different blue polishes by China Glaze. They were New Birth, Capacity To See Beyond, and Wait N Sea.

On all of my other nails I did a half nail gradient with silver studs down the center. For the gradient I used New Birth and Capacity To See Beyond. I did the sponge and foil method, which works really well for me. Some people hate it, but I think it blends the polishes together better than any other method I've tried. The studs are from Born Pretty StoreThe top coat that I used for all of my nails was Out The Door

That's all I have to say about this design. Go ahead and soak up the photos below with your eyeballs. I think they're kind of pretty. Let me know what you think of this design!

As usual, here is the video tutorial. You can see exactly how I did this design and you can even give it a try yourself.
