Smooshed Blossom!

  • Illamasqua – Prosperity
  • O.P.I – Purple Perspective

I really do love the Smoosh technique, it’s so easy to do (if a little messy) and it always works, unlike the cling film (saran wrap) technique, for some reason I seem to mess that up more often than I get it to work!

The stamping image is on plate 14 from Moyou’s Mother Nature collection!

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

Hey Everyone 🙂

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

My nails today where a bit of an experiment, I needed to something to take my mind off something rather upsetting that happened yesterday.

But nails first! I’ll say a little about what happened at the end of this post.

Dotty Watermarble Nail Art

I started off with a simple black and white french tip, I used A England Camelot and SinfulColors Snow Me White. Then using a large dotting tool I added the first layer of dots along the line of the french tip, then using a medium sized dotting tool I added the next lot of dots. After they had dried I applied a thick layer of Seche Vite.

For the watermarble I used OPI Color Paints. Magenta Muse, Purple Perspective and Turquoise Aesthetic. Then I finished it off with a coat of Illamasqua Matte Topcoat.

This mani ended up being way better than I was expecting! But you could get the same effect by stamping over a watermarble lol.

My unhappy news (I’m not going to be offended if you want to stop reading now).

I had to have one of my Ratties euthanized yesterday 😦 Wednesday night he lost the ability to stand and started having seizures.

It my vet said that it looked likely that he had a very aggressive brain tumor, and that his symptoms would only get worse.

I know having him pts was the kindest thing to do, but I’m still shocked at how quickly it happened. Up until Wednesday he was one of the biggest, strongest, healthiest, bouncy ratties that lived here with me.

It’s very sad but I know he’s not in pain, and that he’s had the best life that I could provide.

Sleep well Mr. Seth. I’m going to miss you little buddy.


Rainbow Rocket Ships!

Hello! 😀

Rainbow Rocket Watermarble Nail Art

Today I have these Rainbow Rocket Ship nails to show you 🙂

I stamped these over my rainbow watermarble, for that I used OPI Color Paints, ILNP My Private Rainbow.

I’m actually kind of sad that I had to take this off so soon. Polish only seems to stick to the patch on my middle finger for around half a day before lifting, to say it’s annoying is a quite an understatement!

I think it might be down to the glue I used this time, Sally’s where out of my favorite brush on glue 😦

but this is the only thing that’s annoying me about it, the split in my nail hasn’t gotten any worse, the little bit of bruising has gone, and it’s not hurting any more! Yay, all I have to do now is wait for it to grow out! 😀

I had an accident with one of my kitchen draws, which has left me with a nasty split half way down my nail bed on my middle finger, it really hurt and I swore a lot! 😦

The line of tiny bubbles on my middle finger must be from the edge of the glue the on my fiberglass patch repair.

Seeing as this is going to take months to grow out I better invest in a good ridge filling basecoat! So if you have any recommendations please let me know! 😀

I think my favorites from the color paints collection are Magenta Muse, Turquoise Aesthetic and Purple Perspective.

I’m going to have so much fun playing with these polishes! 😀
