Day 27

What a day! I’ve finally figured out how to organize SOME of my nail polish. After much debate and hours walking around IKEA I found some metal rods in the kitchen section. The were offset enough to place a bottle of nail polish and lean it against the wall (yes, I walked around with 4 different nail polish bottles in my purse).

wallI got the grundtal racks. I got 10 of the 31 1/2 inch ones. Each one holds about 22 polishes. They come with a connector so you can connect two of the rods together. Installation was pretty easy, especially if you have a nice fiancé to screw the screws in for you. Unfortunately I underestimated the size of the bottles so I don’t have enough racks for the amount of nail polish I have, but it works!

On to the nail of the day.

Day 27 OPI The Impossible Mariah Carey Liquid Sand

Paint drip mani tutorial.

First you start with your drop of polish and your dotting tool. With the dotting tool, dip it into the polish and draw a line from the middle of your nail toward the edge of your nail. These will form the drip patterns on the nail, so feel free to draw them randomly wherever and however you like. After you are done drawing your drip pattern, dip your tool in the polish again to make the starting point of your line bigger–forming your paint droplet.

It’s better to be a little wavy to give it that natural paint dripping look. paint drip manicureThat’s it, and the best thing about liquid sand is that you don’t use a top coat. Makes this manicure faster than ever.

Day 5!!!

I’m almost to one whole week. I’m still here, I didn’t forget. I just came back from a late movie. So what was the color of choice for this fine friday?

OPI A Butterfly Moment and OPI Pink Yet Lavender.

At first glance of A Butterfly Moment, this polish looks like a blush nude. And it is, but it the coloring in this polish has different hues in different lighting. In this indoor lighting the polish looks quite nude with no pink accents. In daylight, this polish has a cute girly tone to it. It is quite opaque with a nice subtle shimmer. Definitely a good neutral color to add to my growing collection.

What can I say about Pink Yet Lavender. I love this glitter because of the holo glitters which makes it shine in the light–big points from me. What I don’t like is the name. hahah The large glitters are such a faint pink it almost makes you think it’s lavender–yet pink…I think it’s mostly due to the holographic glitters shining either green or purple. The reflection on the glitters definitely plays up to it’s name which gives this glitter that little perk. Other than the name itself– the glitters are suspended in a nice clear polish. One swipe actually gives you a good amount of glitter to top of any color polish you wish. It hardly takes any effort to get the big pink glitters out of the bottle, so applying this glitter is quick and easy.

Happy polishing!!
