Blue, Gray & White Crackle Randomness

When you can't decide which color you want your manicure to be, this happens!

I painted half the nail with CHI's "Ferry to Lady Liberty" and the other with Orly's "Calypso Breeze". After they dried I alternately added a coat of China Glaze's Crackle "Lightning Bolt" and "Cracked Concrete"

This is how the manicure ended up looking.
(Let's ignore my bruised cuticles. * embarrassed*)

I hope you liked it! What other creative things have you done with crackle polishes?

Milani Silver Dazzle

I've been wanting to try Milani's One Coat Glitters for a while and finally got around to it. It definitely is a whole lot of glitter for every day use for my taste but it does look gorgeous and would dress up any outfit! :D

Here is two coats of Milani "Silver Dazzle"

Revisiting Orly's "Meet Me Under The Mistletoe"

So my new toy is a Canon Rebel T3 and I'm still learning all it's tricks, the great part is that it takes gorgeous pictures of polishes like Orly's "Meet Me Under The Mistletoe" with it's flakie and sparkly beauty! (first swatch it)

Hopefully I will learn my way around it soon & take some more gorgeous manicure pictures to share with you!

Newspaper Manicure

Hello Readers!

It's been a while since I do any fun nail art, so I decided to finally give this newspaper manicure a try since it looked so easy on CutePolish's tutorial.

I painted my nails first with OPI's "Skull & Glossbones" from the Pirates of The Caribbean Collection, after they dried I dipped my nail in some rubbing alcohol for like 5 seconds and firmly pressed a piece of newspaper on my nail for a little while. After you take off the piece of newspaper the ink from the letters should have been transfered to your nail, now all you have to do is seal it in with some top coat and you are all done! 

It's a super easy manicure and it looks great!
Thanks for looking & Happy Lacquering!
