The negative space nail art is definitely my favourite at the moment. If only I had little more time , I’d be playing with tape and polish all day. Its so much fun!!
The blue polish in this mani is Bourjois 1seconde Bleu moonlight. Its a gem. A true one coater. I have just one coat here. It dries fast and glossy too. The other is Corail magique. Another favourite of mine.
The dots are messy but the colors are pretty. I saw a beautiful dot gradient on Instagram and mine looks downright ugly next to it. But eh…. 😀
I really like these two colors together. I think I had a dress in that combination long long long ago. 😛
Rimmel Lively Lilcac, Barry M Vivid Purple
Vivid Purple is a beautiful beautiful polish. And like all polishes it should not be applied under a fan. Because that turns a perfectly good polish into a goopy mess. Sigh! It was still pretty.
Lotus Deep Sea, Orly Lemonade, Lotus Pink Doll, Orly Gumdrop, Rimmel Lively Lilac
This is another one that has been sitting in the drafts folder forever. As soon as I was done dotting I knew something was off. When I uploaded the pics I realised the dots were little too big. Smaller dots would have looked more balanced/appropriate with my nubs.
So today I made a redo folder, where I put pictures of the mani I want to do again. I am afraid that includes almost all the ones I have done. 😛
There is a common theme in all these manis. None of them wanted to be here. But there are only so many pictures you can keep between the keep’em-chuck’em folders. 😛
This one comes from Lucy’s Stash. I memorized the dot placement as well. LOL. Did this well past midnight in low light, had no idea where the polish was going! I woke up to see what a mess it was. 😀 I really want to do this again in pink, white and purple.
Unimaginative and blah! But but but….I saw a post on One Nail to Rule Them All (Cool Blog Name!) where she used gel pen. Gel Pen!!!I had to try it pronto. I hunted all the gel pens I had lying around and went around testing. Brilliant idea this one!!
I wanted to get a hang of this gel pen, but the base was not completely dry. Hence I had to keep my hand light. Well light and steady isnt happening here anytime soon. SO next time I will work on my patience. Tough one that too!! The pointer and pinky again a tutorial from Lucy’s Stash. 🙂
I fell in love with this mani by Chalkboard Nails.So this is my sad little version, which I happen to love. I am a big fan of geometric prints.So this is right up my alley. I will re do this again.
The polishes I used were Orly Lemonade, Lotus Pink Doll & Deep Sea
Let’s not call this spring-y. 😀
Two coats of Barry M Mint Green. No topcoat.
Barry M Mint Green and Revlon Electric
I think I am mildly addicted to Electric. 😛
The only reason I did not buy this polish earlier is because I don’t like mini bottles. I love this colour but it is pain to apply. The thin tiny brush doesn’t help. I think a bigger brush would have meant less strokes thus less streaky-ness.
I’d still say Gumdrop is worth the trouble. Stylecraze Please! the full size bottles!
Simply means the polishes I loved painting my tips & toes with and the polishes I reached for again and agian and the polishes I was sad to remove when they needed to be removed. 🙂
Lakme Fast & Fabulous Purple Plunge is my absolute favourite from this range . And I just cant seem to get enough of it these days. It is my current pedi and looks beautiful.
OPI My Private Jet. I cant believe I did not even try this polish for so long. I am in love with it.
Zoya Avril. My search for pinky brown pastel nude is over…for now 🙂 It covers perfectly in two coats. SO easy so lovely.
Lakme Absolute Fast & Fabulous Aqua Express . Its nothing special actually. But I was in mood for a bright glittery blue on my toes and I remembered I had this. Another one I haven’t yet tried on my hands.
Orly Lemonade is a beautiful yellow pastel. It is so stark against my skin that my hands look dark but never dull. I love this polish. I wish it had better formula but I was prepared, being yellow and pastel I did not have high hope any way. The colour is so much fun and it makes me crave for holidays. *Sigh!* I am definitely taking this along on the next one! 🙂
PS: I am sick and I hope I have written coherent sentences above.
