Chrome and Cobalt Toes :)
(Incidentally, this is the same cobalt I used on my finger nails only it’s over chrome polish instead of chrome mylar :)
I’m finally back! Having a broken computer & insubordinate cell phone makes Tumblr access difficult. This here is just a little something for game day & casual Friday.

My nail tips work as magnifying glass xD Totally accidental, but I think that’s so nifty! (don’t mind my camera casually typing a billion k’s in the next window >.>)
Sapphire Drip Nails for the nailpornography Sapphire Birthstone NOTW contest! I had way too much fun trying to get pictures looking through them at things all day xD
Mylar swoosh with a faceted pattern cut into it planted in base coat and topped with top coat before using my most sapphire blue (Nina Ultra Pro Cobalt, it’s baaaad assss) and more top coat. Then covered that in base/clear uv/gems/uv top coat with the UV lamp.
Oil Slick Nails!
These were achieved by putting a couple drips of 5 metallic colors on each nail (one at a time) and then gently swirling them with a small brush until they covered the whole nail — then several layers of topcoat. The colors are bulky and take a while to dry, but it’s soooo shiny and easy!
Today I tried out highlights for the first time, using Raw Color’s Twisted Teal as the highlights and Deep Purple as the base. Foiling is apparently an artform that looks waaaay easier than it actually is, and I gave up halfway through in favor of randomly picking sections of hair and tealing them up without worrying if I got it on the hair waiting to be purple-d. There are still some cool highlights :) It looks more deep blue and sky blue in the pictures, but it’s more violet with primary blue highlights IRL… which is nice I think :D I got sick of looking for green dye that wasn’t teal or aqua or super pale lime and just went ahead and used colors I already had on hand. (my roots were seriously 5-6” long…)
♥ Jelly French Tips with Dainty Flowers and Chrome Stripes ♥
I mixed the pink and white myself :) I used to have a nightgown this pattern (minus the stripes) that I got from my Great Grandma ^_^
Purple Metallic, Opal, Glitter, Foil & Matte Nails :D They make me think of unicorns.
Nopalito Nails :D
I’ve picked a whole mess of prickly pears the last few days and so I really wanted some on my nails ^_^ They look like a painting my little sister has…
