Baby steps!

🙂

1

This mani here is not much but baby steps will do for now. I really don’t remember much. There is a white, a black. That grey is from OPI. I have love-hate relationship with it. It goes from smooth and perfect one time to streaky and impossible next time. If I didnt know better I’d say I have two bottles of the same polish. Weird, huh!? Any thoughts? That glitter topper China Glaze Boo-gie Down. Love it!

Now I really really want to do a nice valentine mani. Dear God of time! please relent, give me an extra hour today! 🙂

Hidden behind glitter

Natural Light

I like glitter over gradient combinations. They look beautiful. Also the glitter beutifully hides any sloppily done gradient. Like here. 🙂

Meh !

1

I sat down to do some good ole polka dots and I ended up with this mess! How?! For last month or so every time I sit to paint I am unhappy with the result. I have also fallen off of blog routine. You know the paint, art, pictures, edit, upload. The couple of time that I was happy I didnt feel like taking pictures. So I thought I’d post whatever. Maybe I will find my rhythm again.

And one more from the meh folder.

The fat drips apart, I have no idea what is going on with that ring finger. 😛

This is a gorgeous polish from Maybelline Coloshow range. Wined and Dined. Two coats (I think).

The Quick-fix

1

I am so happy to be posting again. This here is a funny quick fix. I had to go somewhere and had significant tip wear on OPI Lucertainely Marvelous. So picked up two colors and a dotting tool and this is what I ended up with. It doesnt look that bad in these pictures. Or does it?!

Pink

I really wanted to do some pink Friday manis this month. It was a crazy month so I am happy I did at least one. I really like this one. As usual the pictures dont do justice.

I have had one of those crazy busy weeks. All I want to do this weekend is put my feet up, order food in and finish reading my book. But not happening. Sigh!

2

So for now I will go paint my nails a happy orange and eat some cake.

Practicing the lines

1
Dutch ’Ya Just Love OPI?
I have had this polish for so long and this is the first time I put it on (as far as I remember 😛 ). I was pretty sure it wasnt as beautiful as all the swatches made it look. But it is! It is!

2
This is me practicing the lines. I really want to be able to move the brush on my nail and be able to breath, both at the same time. Haha!

Ah well!! All in good time! 🙂

Inked

1
OPI Ink & Its all Greek to me, Revlon Flakies

Opi Ink is so much more beautiful than what these pictures show. These pictures miss the gorgeous blue and pink shimmer that makes Ink the beauty it is. And it loses none of its charm when mattified. I loved the mani more than I thought I would.

I have been busy and sick and lazy. Its a miracle this post is even being written. 😀

Beige Germanicure

1
Bourjois Beige & OPI German-icure

These two polishes look beautiful together. I wish I had been more meticulous while placing the tape. The whole point of taping to get the perfect sharp lines. Since I didn’t, I had to remove it almost immediately.The obsessive compulsiveness wins, almost every time! 😛
