Welcome to my journey of all things pens, paper, polish, and beauty. Most of my posts will be about nail polish, makeup, pen pals, and card making. I'll also throw in random posts from my every day life. Enjoy!
Day 13 for the #30daysofcolourchallenge is Glitter. I've been trying to use a bunch of untried polishes, and here is another one. This is Buddy Vampire by Superchic Lacquer. This polish is so gorgeous and has beautiful red and purple glitters throughout the deep purple base. I used three coats for opacity. They applied nicely and cleanup was not an issue.
Day 10 prompt for #30daysofcolourchallenge is White or Leadlighting. I've never done leadlighting, and quite frankly I don't know much about that technique. However, I did have a white polish I've been wanting to use for a while now, and I thought this was the perfect opportunity.
This is Darling Diva Polish Soap...Poisoning. It has a very sheer milky base with glitters that are meant to represent soap bubbles. I used three coats here and didn't like how it looked on my nails. However, I think this would be a beautiful polish layered on top of something more opaque.

I absolutely adore gradients. They are one of my favorite types of nail art, so I was excited to try out a few new polishes for this prompt. Well, the blue did not work out well for the gradient. I was a bit bummed with the blue not working well, however, they remind me a bit of tie die nails. I used two unnamed colors made by Mariposa (purchased in Canada last year).
After doing this gradient, I also decided I need to purchase some kind of barrier product to help with clean up. Do you have any recommendations?

I am new at doing the dry brush technique. The first time I ever tried it I hated the outcome, I tried it again and it grew on me. However, I haven't tried the technique again until this challenge. I'd like to practice some more!!
For this manicure I used Mentality Sunny, Icing Walk of Fame, Butter London Thames and Loaded Lacquer Fig.

Polish Sleuth introduced me to a fun challenge last month which is #30daysofcolourchallenge. The challenge had different colors and nail ideas for each of the days in April. This month I am doing the challenge again, and there are 11 manicures. The first one is gold/dotticure. I decided to do both and this is what I came up with
I used Kraftygurl DesignsThe Cat's Meow and Hotsy Totsy (gold) and topped it all off with KraftyGurl Designs Gloss It! topcoat (one of my two favorite top coats!!).
