Rainbow tech nail art


It takes sunshine and rain to make rainbows. And sometimes, a dash of nail polish too!

Oooh and it glows!!! I used Parrot Polish Dakotas for the base and painted the design with white acrylic paint first. Then all I had to do was retrace it with some Serum No. 5 Glo-balt Blue, Kiwi Glow Now, Solar Power, Orange You Sunny, Raspberry Delight and Wisteria-ously Bright!

Pink Gellac Starter Kit swatches & review


Happy random Thursday! I'm very happy to present to you today: a review of the Large Starter Kit from Pink Gellac! I've been playing around with actually wearing something on my nails for longer than a couple of hours (the life of a blogger, right) and contemplating wearing gel polish more often. So when I was approached by Pink Gellac, I was immediately enthusiastic and rearing to try out this new-to-me brand! Scroll down for info on the contents of the kit, my swatches, and my inner most thoughts about it all!

Dancing couple nail art


Dancing with the feet is one thing, dancing with the heart is another.


It's worth taking a look at the background too because that took me a while to paint... maybe even longer than the couple itself :-p 

I used SuperChic Lacquer Splice & Hot Finger for the gradient. They work together so well! The accent nail was completely painted with acrylic paint.

Chemistry nail art


You and me, baby, we've got chemistry! Dump the stuff from the test tube into the Erlenmeyer and watch the reaction change colors ;-)

The base is Picture Polish Tingle, which is this perfect happy teal color that I should really use more often.

The color change is the magic of Masura 294-244 and 294-247, both thermal gel polishes that you can see in their full glory in my Masura review from 2016. They change from yellow & green when warm to pink & purple when cold, making them perfect for some cool nerdy chemistry nail art!

Negative space chrome kisses nail art


Mwah! Whether you are single, going steady, engaged or married, come here and gimme a kissssss!!!

What you're seeing is the magic of Dragon Powder from What's Up Nails. I used it on the whole nail, then painted over it using black acrylic paint, negative-spacing the lips. I added a matte top coat in the end and voilá!

Key lime nail art


Here's a little slice of summer for ya, just hold on for a few more months and it will be back for real!



It's so juicy looking! I made a base gradient using Serum No. 5 Kiwi Glow Now? and Day Glow, and then just simply painted slices on top of it with white acrylic paint.

And well.... what would a Serum No. 5 mani be without a gorgeous glow?! I freaking LOVE this stuff!
