Nicole by O.P.I- Carnival Cotton Candy & Goodbye Shoes Broken Lines Nail Art Tutorial

(**Press Sample**)
Happy humpday! 

  Today I have an odd color combination nail art look for you guys. These two Nicole by O.P.I shades come from the Carrie Underwood Collection. For some reason the odd mix of Cotton Candy Pink and muted smokey Green kept jumping out at me, so I decided to combine them into this quirky look.

 This look started with a base of Carnival Cotton Candy. This shade is a lovely soft Pink with slight Blue undertones. Once my base color was dry I added some "broken line" accents on my middle and ring nails using striping tape and Goodbye Shoes. Goodbye Shoes is a muted shade of smokey, mossy Green. On my pinkie and index nails I did the spun sugar technique. I top coated my striped nails but left the sugar nails as they were to avoid altering the effect. 

 Here is Carnival Cotton Candy before any nail art was added. I only needed Two easy coats of this color for my swatch. The formula on both of these shades is fantastic and easy to work with.

And just for shigs, I actually did a mini pictorial on how to achieve the broken lines look with scotch and stripe tape. It is a pretty straight forward process, but if you guys have any questions, feel free to ask in the comments ♥.

 I hope you guys enjoyed this look and tutorial. Even though it was a weird color combination, it really did something for me. They remind me of vintage decor for some reason. 

Thanks for stopping by today!

X-Mas Rush! Holiday Spun Sugar Nails with Sation

Good Morning and happy Saturday! 

  Today's Holiday nails are a textured "spun sugar" look that features the Four shades I received from Sation from their Holiday Golightly collection. A while ago I was asking for suggestions on Facebook of what to do for Holiday nails and a few of you came up with the Spun Sugar look. I just HAD to do it! 
 The base color is Sation Feliz Navi-Doll. The light Aqua strings were done in Sation Holiday Golightly, The dark Green is Under the Miss-tletoe and the Red strings were done with Sation I Love Yule. I did not top coat my strings because I always manage to ruin the effect when I try to to coat. I also like the texture on the strings.
  I honestly do not know how these would hold up, or how long the strings take to dry as I don't actually get to "wear" these spun sugar looks.

 This is my base shade Feliz Navi-doll. A beautiful Silvery-White packed with tons of snowy shimmer. This color has a sheer-ish formula but it becomes opaque in Three coats. This shade can also be layered.
 Thanks for stopping by loves!!!!

31 Day Challenge 2012! Day Six: Violet Nails

Happy caturday!! 

  Today Sam, Rie and myself will be taking on the Sixth prompt in the 31 Day Challenge. The task today is Violet nails. For this challenge day I actually knew exactly what I wanted to do and which colors I was to use. That has not been the trend so far throughout this challenge :D. I've been winging it for the most part. 
  This look features all Sation shades. Some of my favorite Purple cremes come from Sation. I knew I just HAD to use Miss Emo Shun All for this look. I've been pretty much obsessed with that polish since I tried it way back when. So I went through my Sation Purple stash to find complimenting shades of Purple and this is the end result... Have I told you guys how much I love the "spun sugar" mani look?
 This look started with a base of Two coats of Miss Emo Shun All. For the strings I used Sation's Love at First Lavender, Tardy Tart and Fan the Flames Fuchsia. I decided to leave it with out a top coat because I like the texture of the strings. I also didn't want to risk smudging my strings by trying to top coat them. 
  I've made some changes to my lighting yet again.... I'm always on the quest for better picture quality. There was just a bit too much glare for my liking, especially when I do nail art. So... I'm going to play around with this new set up and hopefully land on something I really like and is also appealing to you guys. As of right now, I'm pretty happy with how this looks. We'll see... 

  Now don't forget to stop by my challenge partners Rie and Sam's to see their Violet looks for day Six!

Pink [Enough] Wednesday!! Zoya Spun Sugar Mani

Good morning and happy humpday my darlings!!!

  Today I have a Pink Wednesday mani for you guys! It's been forever since I did one of those. This, however, is what I shall call a Pink "enough" Wednesday lol. This manicure was a last minute change. I had set out to try and do some freehand floral nail art and it just was not happening so I started playing with the Spun Sugar technique and went with that instead..... This looks pretty freaking cool!
 To see this look just continue reading <3!
