BUTTER: Slapper

Quick Post today. This is my first ever BUTTER London lacquer. I was excited to finally be able to get one! I got it for free with my Ulta points! Even better! This is a gorgeous teal and as teals go, it shows up blue in the pictures.

I yellowed this last one to show you a better representation of this color

Have a color-ific day!

Muddy Purple Ombre

I've been neglectful over the past week. Sitting around and being lazy and watching TV. We all need that from time to time. :) On to the mani...

For some reason I've wanted to build this ombre for a while. It dawned on me that I had it! I purchased 'I Brake for Manicures' thinking it was a purple and then discovered it's a brown. I put it in this mani and found out I'm not crazy because it really is a purple side of brown. This brought out the purple in it for me and when I put my thumb next to brown objects I saw the purple. In my pink/grey ombre mani I mentioned the 'Porchester Square' has a purple tint and finished off this ombre perfectly! Unfortunately the pics show more of the brown than the purple in these polishes, especially the sun photo.

For my bottle shot I have sun on top and shade on bottom.

Nail-Tear Update + Clouds

Last weekend I clipped off my nail as short as it could go because the fiberglass started to peel & break. Granted, it doesn't help that I keep picking at it because I REALLY want it off my nail!

So here is before I cut it

On to some nail art! I kept my middle finger out of the first one. Poor Finger :(
I used SOPI: Casanova (gift)
Finger Paints: Sketchy Character (Sally's 50% clearance!!)
Essence: Shifting Power

Casanova doesn't look like much in the bottle. It's dulled pink color. When I put it on I fell in love with it. It's a great pink for my skin tone and only needed one flawless coat. I may try stamping with it!! Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this pink/brown/gold combo! I may have to use it again!

Now for the pic with the sad finger. ;(

I really can't wait for the nail to grow out...

Pink/Grey Ombre

Good morning lovelies! Continuing on with my Neutral Theme as of late I started trying out my handful of neutral-ish polishes and found that Nails Inc. Porchester Square has a pink/purple tone to it. I therefore decided to do an ombre mani with it. :)

The Bottle Shot: which I sometimes do... :)

Porchester Square was purchased on Clearance at Sephora!

The 2 pinks are more different than the camera picked up but sometimes they look the same. 

You may notice the tip of my middle finger- the fiberglass started to ship with clipped my fingernail. :(

Hope you enjoyed my pink/grey ombre! These are fun to do.

Neon Neutrals

I seem to me on a 'Neutrals' kick right now. Not sure what happened! It might have something to do with me not being able to choose a color. I might need to do another challenge to get my creativity back in gear.

Today I have Zoya: Farah for you. This is a 'greige' color that changes depending on the lighting. You'll see below between sun and shade pics.

And then my color-addicted self comes back and I decided to use the neon pink Kiss Nail Art Paint that my boyfriend gave me for my birthday. He is so set on me using the stencils that came with it so I used the flower on my thumb. 

My favorite design is the swirl on the middle finger. Do you have a favorite design?
