Attempted tape mani, without tape :/

So I was literally sitting in my car, bored, when I decided to attempt a tape mani.... But I had no tape. So unfortunately, this is the best that could come out of it. Somehow I still really like it. Probably because of the glitter. If there was a piece of poo covered in glitter I'd probably like it too. :)

Used: Sinful Colors "Mint Apple", China Glaze "Marry a Millionaire", Wet n Wild Complete Manicure in "tba" (lol I forgot)

Blue green gradient nails

These nails are one of my favorites. Why? They're easy, quick, and you can use any nail polish you have! I used a couple colors from the Sally Hansen Insta-Dri collection. They're -extremely- pigmented and dry super fast. The only drawback is that when doing gradients, you must work quickly or else if you overblot it, pieces from the makeup sponge will start sticking to the nail.

If you're interested in trying this out, has a great tutorial for it. You literally wet a makeup sponge, squeeze outthe excess, apply your two colors on it (I prefer the cornering the thinner end) and press lightly. Then repeat until you reach your desired effect (3-5 times for me depending on the polish). Ta da! Have fun!

Princess Nails

If you know me at all, you are then aware that I don't really care for the color pink or anything remotely girly. (Except for GLITTER!!!!!)
However, when I found this sheer OPI "Play the Peonies" treasure in the half off basket, I *knew* I had to own it because it would be complemented perfectly by Essie "Shine of the Times". And oh, it was. It reminded me almost of that really pretty Easter basket cellophane wrap.  :) oh... And the turquoise is an LA Color striper.

Seaman themed nails ;)

Hey guys!
I'd been wanting to try out the nautical nail look for a while... So I figured I might as well do it now before summer is over! Also, I've been wanting to try out using metal studs glued on my nails but haven't bought any as of yet. Not to worry, though, because dotting a metallic color worked just as well!

Colors Used:
OPI "Dating a Royal," OPI "Stranger Tides," and LA Colors "Gold Digger."
