Day 52: China glaze pink-e-promise & OPI My Vampire Bites

The Instagram theme for the the march nail art challenge was “vintage” so I opted to do a hand painted vintage lace. I don’t really know how to do it, so I improvised. For the stripes I used striping tape and for the lace I used a super thin striping brush and a small brush.

It was difficult to get the lace background perfect. I was so nervous my lines came out so shakey but it is ok because then I can cover up the worse parts with flowers and rhinestones. Which is what I did. =)

Happy polishing.

Day 47

Day 47: China Glaze Snap My Dragon and Color Club Kismet

I have a friend that is a true believer in “kismet”, fate or destiny, so I had to get this color from color club. I have had my on color club halo hues and last week I finally decided to just buy them. The consistency is a little thick, but it doesn’t really affect the application of this lacquer. The holo effect is AMAZING. The picture isn’t the best, I just wanted to show the holo hue.

China Glaze Snap My Dragon is pinkish red from the avant garden collection. The application is smooth but I think I jumped the gun on the second coat since I got a couple if bubbles after it dried.

Dots were created with OPI Black Onyx with a dotting tool again. It was just a simple design. I was planning on duplicating the nails from Oz the Great and Powerful that Rachel Weisz had, but my fiancé surprised me with dinner reservations tonight (which we are on the way too right now. <3)

Happy Polishing!

OPI Can’t Find My Czechbook

First I painted my nails with my base color, OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls.

After the base color completely dried I cut up some striping taped and applied it to my nails, each nail having a different layout.

With each color make sure you have a little bit of polish on the brush and paint the respective square. If you have too much lacquer on it can easily run into the other square.

As soon as you’re done painting all your other squares remove the striping tape. And voila!

Happy polishing!
