Muffin Monday!! Sation Tardy Tart

Good evening!! 

  I'm late but I'm back baby!! The husband and I had a great and very chill vacation. We went to the beach and got our tan on, hung out with friends and totally re-did the polish room!! I'll have some pictures of what I did over vacation and a  little video tour of the new, and much improved, polish room soon.  I have a huge new desk now and room to make tutorials!! SO!!! That might actually be happening now :D!
 Onto why you're probably here... Muffin is back!!! It has been a WHILE since I've done one of these. I feel kinda bad about that.... But she picked me an awesome color and powered by Bing Energy Drink, some shaky hands and some tunes by Sleigh Bells I managed to bust out a cute mani and try something totally new!
 To see Muffin's pick in action just keep on reading!


  This manicure came out of no where. Muffin picked for me Sation's Tardy Tart which is the awesome Lavender base color on my Index, Ring and Pinkie nails. On my middle nail the base is Sations's Jock Juggler.  All of the colors used in this manicure are by Sation and they come from their Class of Sation collection. I will have some swatches of other colors from this collection soon. They are so bright and FUN and the glitters are to die for. Also, the people at Sation are SO good with their naming.
 So as I said above the base colors are Tardy Tart and Jock Juggler. For the leopard dots I used the same colors and for the outlining I used Sation Miss Emo Shun All (Oh lol... ). MESA will be a b*tch to photograph but if you can take my word for it.. Just buy it. It's amazing. It's an uber deep Indigo/ Violet.. It's radioactive and deep, moody.. Just amazing. You need it! As for the other colors used in this mani.. The same applies.  For this freehand leopard mani I used Sarah's Tutorial. I'm surprised at how well these turned out for how shaky my hands were... I think the shaky hands helped the effect haha. Topped off with Seche Vite..

Muffin!!!! <3!

Here are my base colors before nail art.
 These two colors have AMAZING Two coat formulas. I always expect colors in this family to have a thick and/or goopy formula but these were just perfect! They were buttery smooth, perfectly pigmented and more vibrant in person than in my photos. They are not pastel, maybe "neon pastels" if there was such a thing. I really wanted Sunlight pics of these but it is not so nice out today. I also relocated my light tent set-up so I have to adjust the lighting once again. These are not too far off from real life though.
 I'm happy to be back and that vacation is just what I needed. I hope I can keep up with this awesome tan I have going on... I hope you guys like this mani. It was a lot of fun to work on and surprisingly easy to do! Muffin is glad to be back!! 

Thanks for stopping by!
