Pure Ice Mismatch nails

I decided to do somethin I usually don't with these nails. I used Pure Ice Taxi and Temptress. Temptress is the darker one and Taxi is lighter. I liked both but didn't wear this mani for very long.

Do you do mismatch nails?

As always, thanks for stopping by :)

Spring has sprung!

Okay, it really hadn't when I did these nails but I was hopin! I was so sick of all the stupid snow and winter (that just seems to be over, like yesterday) that I wanted spring.

I used Zoya Robyn as the base (sorry no swatch pics!), it is a gorgeous spring blue and the art is acrylic paint as usual. 

Regular topcoat:

Matte Me Crazy:

I liked it a lot better matte. And despite trying, my camera just refused to do this justice. It looked so much cooler on! 

Are you happy it might finally be spring?

Zoya Swatches: Zuza and Skyler

Hi guys! 

I know it's been a long time (things have been super crazy) but I thought I'd try to catch up. 

I've been intrigued by the look of Zuza pretty much since it came out last summer. I wasn't sure if I would really like it though. Zoya had a deal a while back where you got 3 polishes for $10 so I decided to grab Zuza. Overall application is flawless just like every other Zoya I have tried. I like it but maybe more for my toes. 

Zoya Skylar looks different to me in person than it did on the site. It's kind of a gray blue. I like it but it really isn't my favorite color. I think you all know by now that I really prefer bright blues, pinks and purples. But it is still gorgeous! 

As always, thanks for stopping by :)

Ana over at Simple Nail Art Tips posed a challenge and had an awesome sale while she was at it: go naked for 3 days and follow the directions for happy, healthy nails. 

I decided to join. Why? Eh, my nails had already been naked and I know how good people say cuticle oil is lol. You should probably note that I absolutely abhor cuticle oil and I'm terrible at nail care and maintenance usually. 


Overall not terrible right? I mean honestly they could look a lot worse. Especially when you consider I don't do any kind of nail/cuticle care. 

The directions to follow are basically to apply Pure cuticle oil to the nails as often as they need for 3 days. At first they should soak it up really quick. In the starter pack you get 1 2ml nail oil pen and 1 15ml bottle of cuticle oil for $24 (US). Believe me when I say it is totally worth it! It smells great and feels great and doesn't stay all oily for super long. It works! Don't believe me? Proof:

Keep in mind that I am pretty much incapable of focusing on anything for days at a time lol. I probably followed the directions and applied the oil like I should for, um, maybe a day? A day and a half at the most. I tried though! The point is this would have worked even better if I had. I could feel a HUGE difference. And once the challenge days were over I was dying to wear polish again! And I needed to do some swatching. I could definitely tell how drying that process was. The only other nail anything I did during that time was file

Great things about Pure:
All natural
Great Smell
Nice texture, not super oily/greasy feeling
It works!

Cotton and Rock Candy Nails!

Oh look at me, back so soon! Haha, kidding! I never left ;) 

Ok, all joking aside lol...nails then talky talky.

For some reason the OPI Liquid Sand (Get Your Number) reminds me of rock candy. Anywho, I did this with flocking powder which I got at Micheal's of course. 2 coats of the polish. This was the first time I used flocking powder and I really like it! Not much else to say about it. Have you done fuzzy nails yet?

As always, thanks for stopping by :)
