31DC - Galaxy!

I love a good galaxy mani, but I definitely do not do them enough! So I was excited to do one again today, and I only used a tiny 6 polishes!

My base is OPI Ink, and then, in order, I sponged on Dollish Polish Northern Lights, China Glaze OMG A UFO, Zoya Blu and then Gloss n Sparkle Spectrum for a multi coloured sparkle. My 'stars' are done with Sea Siren Tranquility. I was 10435574676858% unsure of how this combo of polishes worked out, but I LOVED it!

Tomorrow is watermarble day. Oh dear...

Until Next Time,

31DC - Half Moons!

I don't do a lot of half-moon manis. Mostly because I have to freehand them, and I am not good at that. I was searching for a good colour combo for this, and pulled out two Color Club polishes I haven't used in a long time - Revvvolution and Love Em Leave Em.

Neutral holo goodness! I ended up loving this one.

Until Next Time,

31DC - Glitter!

Glittaaaaaaaah! I love me some glitter, and Aussie Indies do it better than anyone else. This particular glitter is a special one, because it was a part of the What's In-die Box? a month or two ago. I didn't buy the box, but was gifted this stunner by a very lovely friend.

Gloss 'n Sparkle Beetlejuice. It has back, white, purple and holo glitter in a clear base. I used one coat over Ulta3 Tahiti, Sea Siren Mojito Madness and Illamasqua Stance, and on my ring finer, 2 coats alone. It's SUPER packed with glitter, crazy sparkly and soooo easy to apply. I am in LOVE. The reasoning for my undie colour combo is basically, I couldn't choose which of the 3 I wanted to use, so I used all of them!

Until Next  Time,

31DC - Geometric!

Geometric is a weird one. So I took it a bit weird. My mani today is an obscure one, but I love it! It's a Porygon mani!


For those unaware, Porygon is a Pokemon. Notably famous for having one episode about it, an then that episode NEVER being shown because it caused children to have seizures!

For my mani, I used different parts of Porygon for each finger, and used Sally Hansen I Pink I Can and a BYS Blue (called Blue, believe it or not). I loved this SO hard, until my top coat smudged it badly.

Until Next Time,

31DC - Delicate Print!

Delicate print. So not keen. Delicate and I have never got along, I'm more of a bull in a china shop. So, for this one, I cheated a little. I'll also be doing another Born Pretty Store review in this too.

When I think delicate, I think either nude or pastel colours. So Face of Australia Travilla is definitely perfect.

I used some water decals for 'delicacy' and then I piled on a bunch of rhinestones from this mixed stone wheel as an accent. The stones in this wheel are fantastic quality, and gorgeous, but HUGE. I didn't find them overbearing on the nail though.

31DC - Flowers!

Never really have I been a floral fan. This time of year, flowers are my enemy (hayfever sufferers feel me!), and I try to avoid them. For this prompt, I decided to try another new technique to me, one stroke painting.

 I used standard black and white, along with Sea Sirens Buccaneer, and ended up with some vampy flowers! The one stroke was surprisingly easy, especially because most people recommend using acrylic paints!

Until Next Time,

31DC - Animal Print!

Todays post is a mash up of two things - the 31DC, and a Born Pretty Store review.

The theme for today is animal print, and I went with leopard print, the easy route. But, I did it mainly so I could use these ADORABLE Water Decals from BPS.

HOW CUTE IS THAT CAT?! Argh it's so cute! I popped him over a base gradient of Sea Sirens Sea Mist and Tranquility. The spots are Revlon Royal and Illamasqua Stance. The water decals are super simple to use, just like a temporary tattoo. No smudging with topcoat, and no air bubbles. Very easy to use!
