Christmas Puke Nails

Hey!! I finally have some festive holiday nails! This time, with a tutorial, but it's over at The Wonder Forest! Go check it out.

It's my take on my marble nails, but I did it with Christmas colors, you can of course use whatever colors you want. I think they look like someone threw up Christmas all over these nails, but in a totally good way! Hahaha. The photos at the end have them with some glitter on top, for even more festiveness.

GalaxSEA Nails!

A while ago, a friend of mine, asequinedlife, entered a contest. I posted the link on my Facebook page to help her get some votes. She had to make a vision board and the winners got to make their own nail polish color. My friend was one of the winners, so of course I had to get her color! It's a gorgeous purple with small blue flecks in certain lighting, so she named it GalaxSea.

I'm not usually one to swatch, so I added a simple gold stripe down the center of each nail.

I used:
  • Rescue Beauty Lounge: Galaxsea
  • Lacquistry: Amazeballz
  • The New Black: Gold Glitter
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Marble Nails!

Heyy! Have you been seeing the marble nail trend lately? I absolutely love it, so I wanted to take a stab at it. Not sure what other people's methods are, but mine involved marbling polish together on some paper first and painting it on with a striping brush. I may put a tutorial together, so stay tuned! This was also a bit hard to photograph because it's so subtle. Brighter colors next time!

I used:
  • OPI: My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • OPI: Funny Bunny
  • OPI: Alpine Snow
  • OPI: Don't Bossa Nova Me Around
  • OPI: French Quarter For Your Thoughts
  • OPI: Moonraker
  • OPI: Cement The Deal
  • OPI: Embrace The Gray
  • OPI: My Silk Tie
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Abstract Sponged Nails!

OMG! Guys, I woke up this morning to a notification saying Grace Potter herself retweeted my nails! She wrote "Grooooovy." Hahaha, fan-girling so hard. I'll put the screenshot at the bottom of this post. Bahhhh!!

Ok on to new nails! I wasn't sure what to call these, but I love them. I used a sheer nude base color and then sponged a few colors on different spots on each nail, making sure to overlap and fade some of them. I really liked them to start but once I added the gold I fell in love.

I used:
  • Essie: Sugar Daddy
  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • OPI: Life Gave Me Lemons
  • OPI: My Dogsled Is A Hybrid
  • OPI: Pamplona Purple
  • China Glaze: Sun Worshiper
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat
Grace Potter retweeted my nails from last week!
