Glam Polish Coven & Hex Nail Jewelry Charms for Nail Crazy in March!

 Hey everyone! Today I have some good luck charm nails for the last week of Nail Crazy In March to share!

I am currently in my last week of school until September, and I am very excited to be done for a while! Soon I'll have tons of time to blog and paint my nails, so expect more posts in the next little while!

Anyways, onto the nails!

Glam Polish Coven & Hex Nail Jewelry Charms

Firstly, I should explain my thought process behind these nails. As a student, when I think of good luck I think of exams. So I decided to put together a super quick but fancy look that I would wear to an exam for good luck!

Glam Polish Coven & Hex Nail Jewelry Charms

For any simple look, I love to throw in some Hex Nail Jewelry for extra interest and glamour! And being charms, I feel like they fit the prompt quite well!

For the red nails I applied just one coat Glam Polish Coven and a coat of top coat (Sally Hansen Insta-Dri this time). This polish dried quite textured so it would have needed another coat of top coat to be close to smooth. I had a huge bubble problem with Insta-Dri top coat once again, as you can very clearly see on my charmed nails.

Coven was so lovely to work with! It is stuffed full of holographic pigment and glitter, check out my Instagram if you'd like to see a video of it in the Sun! I'd like to wear it with two coats next time to see if the colour gets more deep or rich, because I suspect it might! I hardly had to cleanup these nails because the formula and brush were so lovely!

Cat Emoji Nails Featuring piCture pOlish Forget Me Not!

Hey everyone! Today I have a quick post on some fun cat emoji nails to share!

My computer has completely died and been sent in for repairs since I last posted on here :P. In good news, the warranty would have expired today but it died yesterday so we sent it in just in time! I'm now commandeering one of my boyfriend's three laptops (he's into computers) and I managed to get these pictures from a backup on my external hard drive! So all in all, it's basically all good news as my computer was laggy and quite hot most of the time leading up to it completely dying.

Anyways, onto the nails!

piCture pOlish Forget Me Not

I started off with two coats of the gorgeous piCture pOlish Forget Me Not and a coat of top coat.

The formula, the brush, the dry time... everything about this polish is perfection. And oh my goodness, it's absolutely drop dead gorgeous. Also, you could probably get away with one coat with this baby.

This is the second polish I've tried from this brand and I'm already head over heels in love!

See those flakies? Well guess what, they're holographic flakies!!

And here are the kitties! I'll embed my Instagram tutorial for this look down below in case you guys are interested!

As for the polishes, I used American Apparel T-shirt (white), Revlon Timeless (light grey), American Apparel 7th and Alameda (medium/dark grey), American Apparel Hassid (black), American Apparel Rose Bowl (pink), OPI Red Hot Rio (red) and Julep Claire (blue).

Here is the little guy I did with my non-dominant (left) hand. I feel like he came out kind of funny but also quite good considering it was with my bad hand!

Rainbow Half Moon Hearts for Nail Crazy In March!

Hello everyone! Today I have yet another half moon heart look to share, but this time they're rainbow-coloured!

I only have two more weeks of school (followed by three weeks of finals) and I'm so freaking excited!! It means my four month holiday from school will be here soon as well as my Swiss sister Anna! She'll be staying with us for three of those four months and it's going to be so amazing!

But enough about me, onto the nails!

Rainbow Half Moon Hearts for Nail Crazy In March

For this look I just used the brushes from the bottle! I really love this technique because it's so quick, cute and easy!

Colour-wise I used OPI Red Hot Rio, Toucan Do It If You Try and Need Sunglasses? for the red, orange and yellow, respectively. Next, I went in with American Apparel Neon Green and Essie Strut Your Stuff and DJ Play That Song for the green, blue and purple!

I didn't end up putting the red on this hand but I did on my other one! I would have included a picture but there was a huge cat hair on my nail that I didn't notice until after taking the pictures :P.

These feel so springy/summery and happy to me! They're my way of welcoming spring this year.

Saint Patrick Nails for Nail Crazy in March!

Yo yo yo my lovely people! Today I have some Saint Patrick nail art to share for Nail Crazy in March!

I'm getting this post up a couple days late because of family stuffs. Enough about that though, let's talk about nails! My lovely boyfriend bought me eight polishes from Harlow & Co last night and I can't freaking wait to get them! Rest assured you'll see some gorgeous KBShimmer, Glam Polish, Polished by KPT and Crows Toes polishes in the near future!

Anyways, onto the nails!

Saint Patrick Nails for Nail Crazy in March

So these nails are based on the myth that Saint Patrick banished all of snakes from Ireland by chasing them into the ocean with his staff. Really though, snakes have never lived in Ireland :P.

Saint Patrick Nails for Nail Crazy in March

Rather than explain how I did these, I'll just embed my Instagram video tutorial down below! As for the polishes, I used American Apparel Mount Royal topped with KBShimmer Will Yule Marry Me? for the ocean, KBShimmer In Bare Form for the sand, Deborah Lippmann Hannah (green) and Jessa (red) for the snakes and Milani 3D Holographic Nail Lacquer 3D for the staff.

Saint Patrick Nails for Nail Crazy in March

I'm officially madly in love with KBShimmer polishes! Both of the ones I used here were so easy to work with and In Bare Form is so holographic and basically my perfect nude!

I really don't think the gold jives well with the rest of these colours and in general these didn't turn out as cool as I thought they would. They're almost a nail fail in my mind, but I'm still happy that I came up with a unique idea for this challenge. What do you guys think of these nails or these KBShimmers? I'd love to know!

Here's the super quick tutorial!

Thanks so much for taking a look guys!! I'm thinking of posting more often on here (like three days a week) since I only have one more midterm (my eighth of the semester :P) to write so I might have some more free time. We'll see! I'm not sure what I'll be back with but it'll be soon! Happy Saturday guys! =)

Five Manis I've Done on my Grandma!

Hey everyone! Today I have some manis I've done on my grandma to share!

I am in the middle of a few big midterms and lab write-ups so I thought I'd get up a quick post on some nail looks I've done on my grandma for you guys! I love all things nails (obviously) so I really love doing my family or friends' nails while we're having a visit!

Anyways, onto the nails!


In this first look she's wearing two coats of Emily de Molly Turbulence and a coat of top coat (link to the post on my plaid nails shown here).


Here I believe she's wearing two NYX Girls polishes in Pimp My Ride (lime green) and True Navy (navy)!


Here she's wearing a MrCandiipants floral design with Essie Play Date as the base, and Quo by Orly Lilac Lust, Zoya Kristen, Orly Mind's Eye and OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls for the details.


For these nails, I think I used NYX Girls Mermaid Green for the base and I definitely used OPI Solitaire for the zig zags (also inspired by MrCandiipants)!


Lastly, we have some American Apparel Coney Island with Black Sheep Lacquer Forbidden Fruit on top!

What do you guys think of round up posts like these? I'm sure I could put some together with my mom and sister's nails as well! Happy Monday lovelies! :)

Gold Ore Nail Art for Week One of Nail Crazy in March!

Hey everyone! Today I have some gold ore nail art to share for this week's prompt of the Nail Crazies Unite challenge; gold!

I kind of think that I've finally figured out my lighting and white balance!! My skin looks the right colour to me for basically the first time ever and I could almost cry about it! I got some new 5000K lightbulbs and I think my camera can custom white balance with them a lot better because it hardly has to change anything.

Anyways, onto the nails!

Gold Ore Nail Art for Week One of Nail Crazy in March!

I started off with two coats of OPI You Don't Know Jacques over a coat of Orly Bonder. After that had dried, I went in with a ball of saran wrap and American Apparel T-shirt, OPI I Sing in Color, OPI Chocolate Moose and then YDKJ in that order.

Gold Ore Nail Art for Week One of Nail Crazy in March!

I decided to add a coat of a sheer white polish (Essie Waltz) to calm down/blend the colours and design a bit. After that, I painted on some gold veins with Milani 3D Holographic Nail Lacquer in 3D and my Winstonia Kolinsky Sable Brush in #0000.

Gold Ore Nail Art for Week One of Nail Crazy in March!

Because I don't have a lot of golds, the only warm one I had was holographic. So I decided to dull that effect (because real gold is not holographic) with a coat of NYC Matte Me Crazy Mattifying Top Coat. After a lot of clean up, I was done!

Gold Ore Nail Art for Week One of Nail Crazy in March!

You can see that whole process very sped up below in my Instagram video tutorial!

Thanks so much for having a look everyone! I hope you guys are having a good week so far! I have a bunch of midterms and stuff coming up but I'll still probably be posting on schedule! Happy Thursday! :)

Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

Hey everybody! Today I have some floral nail art topped with a wax effect top coat to share!

I'm realizing that I have a bunch of midterms and lab write-ups to do in the next little while and it's stressing me out! I love those weeks of just lectures and labs; they actually feel manageable haha. The only thing that will make me feel better is studying and working on my labs so I'll try to do that at a time that isn't last minute for once :P.

Anyways! Onto the nails!

Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

For this look I started off with two coats of OPI Do You Have This Colour In Stock-holm? over a coat of Orly Bonder. After that had dried, I went in with my Winstonia Kolinsky Sable Brush in #0000 and Essie Truth or Flare for the flower petals. Next, I went in with the same brush and OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana for the flower centres.

Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

After a few minutes I sprayed my nails with a coat of hairspray and allowed it to dry. I do this because it's a way to put a layer of clear material over your nail design without the use of a brush (ie. without the potential to smudge your design). I then applied one coat of my regular top coat (Essie Good to Go) followed by a coat of Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

I have been wanting a wax-effect top coat for a long time so I'm so happy to finally have one! I can't wait to try it over a watercolour design because I think that would look awesome!

Purple Floral Nail Art Featuring Pretty & Polished Wax On Top Coat!

What do you guys think of this design, base colour or wax-effect top coats? I'd love to know!

I actually ended up filming myself while doing these nails so I have a little tutorial to share from my Instagram! Would you guys like to see more short video tutorials embedded in my posts like this? I think I'll start filming tutorials every time I paint my nails so I could easily do so!

Thanks so much for reading guys! I'll be back with some gold nails since I'll be participating in the Nail Crazies Unite weekly challenges this month, and that's the theme for this week! I hope you're all having a good start to your week! Happy Monday! =)
