The Lacquer Ring – (WD) Negative Space Mani

It’s that time again and as you know it was Nicole’s pick this month. For our TLR collab for nail art she chose negative space nails.

For my fellow Walking Dead-ers this week is the season finale so I really wanted to use Dollish Polish’s Walker bait polish. I paired it with Ulta’s Concrete Evidence and some blood using China Glaze’s Adventure Red-y. If you watch the Walking Dead you will notice the two W’s I have on my nails you all know what that’s for … well we don’t know yet, but it’s a part of the current story line. For those of you that don’t it could just be for Walking dead 😉 lol

IMG_7416I absolutely love Walker Bait and I am so mad it was part of my un-trieds. I picked up this beauty from Dollish herself last year when we did the NYC Blogger Meet up which was really fun 🙂

The Lacquer Ring – Splatter

I’m baaaack! Back with my prompt for The Lacquer Ring nail art for the month of January. I picked as you can tell from the title, Splatter. The girls were ready to curse me out, but I just had to! I love the way that splatter looks and versatility of the look. I decided to go a little differently this time, I wanted different textures or finishes, check out what I came up with, I love it!

For Christmas my husband kept saying he really wanted to get me a nail polish but with my stash how in the world could he possibly know what to get. I sent him my wishlist tab that I have on the blog LOL but he didn’t want to be bothered.. said it wasn’t special enough. I told him well most of what I have on my list that are ‘special’ it’s just because I cannot find them, and spouted out a few. Well Guess What he found me!!!!…. OPI’s Here Today Aragon Tomorrow SUEDE VERSION! I couldn’t believe it, super awesome, have not been able to find this in forever!!!

I did two coats of HTAT Suede and splattered Essie’s Penny talk for my different finish of metallic, and then chose a holo to splatter using Dollish Polish’s Walker Bait.IMG_7317The holo is sort of hard to see, I would have rathered a more vibrant holo but I’m in love with how it came out, what do you think??

Do you hate the work that goes in to splatters too? I’ll let you in on a little secret if you don’t already do this… I use OPI’s glitter off on my cuticles and the tips of my fingers where I know I am going to make a mess. You can use glue, or anything else that you would normally use say when you marble, makes clean up A LOT easier 😉

Spectral Zombie nubs

Happy_Halloween_by_Akebashi_chanHappy Halloween everyone!

I have two different Halloween manis for you today. One from last week and one that I am wearing with my currently nubly state. 😦  My ring finger nail broke I slammed it on the door and I absolutely hate such different lengths of nails. This happened at work and I was impatient and ripped my nails off rather than cutting, I know, I know SOO bad. so by the time I filed them so they weren’t all jagged they were like soo short 😦 I hate them right now.

First up is Spectral Pup by Dollish Polish. I have been wanting this polish for soooo long and I finally found it! I put it over two coats of Spa Ritual’s HiJinks.

Spectral Pup is an orange and white glitter in a shimmery base that glows in the dark! I totally freaked myself out with this.. I had forgotten about the glow in the dark and one night I was up on my way to the bathroom and my thumb was glowing scared the crap out of me.. SMH. Then I looked on table and saw whole bottle was glowing… oh yea! Duh.

IMG_7153IMG_7150I love how this looks so different overtop so many different polishes. Thats part of what I love so much about glitter toppers. 🙂

Next up is more Dollish Polish, this is Zombie Flesh and Walker Bait.

I don’t know much about it, but I am wondering if there are two different formulas since she brought Zombie Flesh back. From me looking at swatches most seem to be a more kahki army like olive green and mine is more of a brighter green. It’s a green jelly with black, gold, and green glitter flecks. Took 3 coats to be opaque.

Then Walker Bait is this gorgeous deep rich olive green holo. What more can I say about that, I mean it’s stunning.

I just wish that my nails were not nubs and were longer. I feel that it shows gorgeous polishes so much better that way when they aren’t nubs. Sorry guys They are already getting longer again.

Well there you have it. Here are my Halloween Manis.

What is everyone being for Halloween?
