My daughter picked these polishes for me. Actually I shut the box after the first three polishes she picked, I dont think she would have stopped at three or four or five. The more the merrier 🙂 But it was so much fun.
What I had in mind was a neutral beige base with the slightest hint of neon here and there. This is lot more than slight, but its okay.
The thumb,I didn’t know what to do with it. It looks funny, I think. 😀
This is Faces sand coat Oatmeal Raisin. I do not like the name. I love the rest of it. It’s breathtakingly beautiful and unlike any polish I own. I did three coats here. Now, going by Faces Cosmetics history I’d say its their take on OPI’s very famous Alcatraz Rocks. Not that I am complaining. 😉
I am mostly pretty meh about polish fads/trends. Like I dont own any shatter or magnetic polishes. But the textured polish trend has all my attention.
This is the first mani I have ever done with striping tape. All courtesy the lovely Kejal. She sent me the tape and my first set of nail art brushes! ! Thank you Kejal! I need to break open the brushes now. 🙂
Its here! My valentines mani! 😀 Little things-great joy! I did this in a rush (as usual) and it shows. But I still like it. Also it looks atleast ten times better in person than here. I hope I will remember to re-do this mani . I really like the negative space nails, and for the first time in years (seriously!) my nails are not stained, so I dont feel bad showing them. Hurray to that!

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! 🙂
So, It took me more than a month, but I am back. Needless to say my nails and polish application both are rusty. But it is extremely gratifying to see polished nails after all this time.
I like glitter over gradient combinations. They look beautiful. Also the glitter beutifully hides any sloppily done gradient. Like here. 🙂
