Flower Power!

Ahem... before we even begin... I HAVE HAD THESE NAILS ON FOR FIVE DAYS!!! Yeah, 5 whole days. I swear... this is a record for me. I haven't kept any nail polish or art on for more than 3 days generally. But anyho, I just got so busy this week that I couldn't take these nails off. Wait. You ask what do they look like? Bahahahaha. Look below. ;)
Dawwwwwww! Aren't these flower nails so pretty?!?! Okay. Maybe since I did them, that's the only reason why I think they are. :/ I don't know, I really, REALLY loved them though!
Keep on reading for just a couple more pictures. :)

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Did I really create a separate manicure and tutorial for today? Yes, yes I did because I love you guys. :) Hurray for St. Patty's Day and my manicure to celebrate! I tried my hand at making shamrock nail art but couldn't get it just right on all my nails... but I was able to capture the best shamrock in a tutorial! Haha, so please keep reading for a 4-Leaf Clover Nail Art Tutorial AND my attempt at making a cute mani. ;)
First let's do our 4-Leaf Clover Tutorial though! ;) <3 All you need are 2 different nail polish colors (one should be green though since it IS a shamrock! ;)) and a dotting tool of some sort. I just used a mechanical pencil (the lead) and dipped it into polish. So let's get started! :D
1. Start off with your base coat and let it dry. I used I'm With The Lifeguard by China Glaze. Now, to make this shamrock, we are just going to draw 4 hearts basically. :) But just in case you don't know the "easy" way how to make a heart, I'll show you how.
2. So let's start off with 2 dots. I used Gaga For Green by China Glaze.
3. Draw one line coming out of one of the dots.
4. Repeat step 3 but keep in mind that this time you have to make the 2 lines connect. Do you see the heart now?!! (Or well, they're not hearts. They're clover petals. ;))
5. Now repeat steps 2-4 three more times to make a 4-Leaf Clover but I'll show you one more time. So draw 2 green dots.
6. Connect those 2 dots to make a heart (clover petal).
7. Repeat steps 2-4 once more like so.
8. And finally once more!
Taaaa-daaaah! There is your adorable shamrock! :D You can add a dot in the center or even a little green stem coming out of it to finish off your shamrock but I just left mine like this. :) (Until I messed it up and took of the entire mani lol...) So this concludes my nail art tutorial for St. Patrick's Day but go ahead and read more if you want to see how my nails look now. ;)

Swatch Fest!

Woah... Hey guys! I'm still alive! :D I have been so busy the last month so I'm proud to say that my hardest finals are done and life has begun to settle down again. ;) So, let's have a awesome swatch fest to celebrate! I'd love to highlight 3 Sinful Color polishes today and this was my first time trying to be a "swatcher", so please bear with me. xD Thanks guys!
Quick story on how I obtained these 3 polishes first. ;) They originally were my sister's because she got them as birthday present from an aunt. Well, she isn't into nail polish as much as me... (I know.. it's shocking that we're even related. :O Just kiddin', I absolutely adore my sister!) Well, because I only had 2 Sinful Color polishes at the time and I REALLY wanted the ones she had because she wasn't going to use them anyway. ;) So? I bought them. For how much? A half used pack of tic-tacs. The tic-tacs were the orange flavored.. yum.. but nail polish just meant more to me. ;) Thank goodness she took the bait! Thanks Zoe! <3 Anyway! Let's continue on to the swatches! :D (I'm so proud of these poses hehehe. ;))
Here is Cream Pink by Sinful Colors. I adore this pink! I used 3 coats and topped it with my favorite clear coat, Seche Vite, because it dried matte. (Read more for more pictures of 3 other polishes!)
