NOTD: Venique "Hot Date" with glitter tips

Monday, July 2, 2012

I wanted something bright and pink to match an outfit. I immediately grabbed Venique Hot Date. I love my Venique polishes. I haven't had problems with chipping or the formula. It applies even and smooth. I do think it has a longer drying time than some brands. 

I used Wet n Wild Coloricon "The Crown is Mine" on the tips. I like those little Coloricon polishes. Lots of glitz and glitter for an affordable price.

Venique is available exclusively at Cosmoprof although it can be found on eBay.

Narrow stripes with tape

Monday, June 25, 2012

I love doing Scotch tape manicures. Every once in a while I have to use the narrow striping tape too. I love the look of it. Especially with bright, bold colors. For this one I used Milani Fast Fuchsia and Yellow Whiz. 

I love these colors together.

Milani Fast Fuchsia and Yellow Whiz

I started off with a base color of Milani Yellow Whiz. Such a perfect, pure yellow.


Then I used the striping tape for the stripes. I will show exactly how I did that in the next few photos. This is the kind of tape I used. I got several rolls from eBay for just a few dollars. The hardest part of using it finding the loose end.


I tried it again with Wet 'n Wild Chrome colors on the base and Zoya Breezi as the top color. I don't like these colors together as I do the pink and yellow. But Zoya Breezi is one of my all time favorite blues though.


This is how I used the tape. You don't have to be exact. Then paint your top color and remove the tape quickly. It makes perfect stripes! Apply a top coat to protect and smooth and you are done.


I always use Seche Vite Fast Dry top coat. I started with a different top coat by Jessica this time and it smeared. You can see it on my pointer finger here. I love the Jessica top coat for its high gloss. But I think I will stick with Seche Vite - especially for nail art.




NOTD: Random Flowers

Sunday, June 17, 2012

I wanted to do something a little different that stripes or dots. I came up with tons of creative ideas only to realize that while I could do it on my left hand - my right hand would be a challenge.

So I decided to do random flowers. I started with a base color of Milani A Rose My Lady. Then using Wet n Wild Chrome polishes and a small paint brush I set off to paint those random flowers. Simple strokes with the brush made the flower petal. No need to be perfect. Then I put a daub of golden yellow in the center of each flower. I added one stem with a black striper and a couple of green leaves with the brush.

While I am not an artist - it didn't come out too bad. I do like the way the Chrome adds a multidimensional level to the look.


Ad"mint"edly close

Friday, May 4, 2012

I was looking through my polishes and realized I have four really similar "minty" polishes. Okay, Okay, I have a lot of similar polishes... Just don't tell my husband. I think he just sees blues, reds, and pinks...

So I decided to do a comparison of the polishes.

The four polishes are:

Nicole OPI My Lifesaver
China Glaze Aquadelic
Wet n Wild I Need a RefreshMint
FingerPaints ChocoMint

This is three coats on all fingers. I could have perhaps gotten away with 2 if I had applied a base coat. 

They are all really similar. The NOPI and the Fingerpaints are slightly more green.

They all applied very well. Although I think the Wet n Wild is a little thinner than the others. 

How close do you think they are?
