piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2014 Featuring Nail Vinyls!

Hi Everyone! I am so excited today because once again I had the wonderful opportunity to participate in the annual piCture pOlish Blog Fest. For the first time this year the blog/insta fest features Nail Vinyls. piCture pOlish will be retailing a special exclusive 4 pack 'Nail Vinyls' containing Chevrons, Mini Chevrons, Straight & Right Angles.

My challenge for today was 2-fold, to swatch a gorgeous newly released lacquer named Eyre and to create nail art using Nail Vinyls and the creamy shades Marine and Mad Magenta. I had quite a bit of fun with this challenge so buckle up for a long post!

Jonesy Lou Lacquer Fleur

Hi Everyone! Today I would like to show you another Jonesy Lou Lacquer beauty and some nail art that I had fun creating to go along with it. I'm not quite sure what my inspiration was for this look other than I really wanted to try out New Beat that I showed you yesterday for the leadlight technique and this seemed to be the perfect opportunity...

Jonesy Lou Lacquer New Beat and Spittin Shade

Hi Lovelies! I had hoped to show these beauties to you Monday morning and here we are Friday afternoon by the time I finally got a chance to sort photos and show you two beauties by Jonesy Lou Lacquer. This is a new to me indie brand and I was excited to try a few shades from the lineup. The two lacquers I'm showing today were just released on Monday (hence why I wanted to time my post for that day, but life and work just got in the way). So without further delay, here are New Beat and Spittin Shade...

New Beat
A hot pink jelly with gold and orange microglitter that glows under black light! On it's own, it is rather sheer and for that reason I chose to layer it over a white base. I also figured the white base would make the neon pop. I think it can just as easily be layered over a similar pink cream. The formula was very nice, not too thick. I didn't have any issues with it dragging or balding. Very easy application. This is two coats of New Beat over one coat of white plus a top coat. Hot!...

Smoky Egyptian

Hi everyone! I wanted to show you a manicure that I created while playing around with the Dance Legend Smoky collection shades not too long ago. My first thought was to try and create a turquoise stone manicure using the water spotting technique, but since I still haven't mastered getting polish to behave as I would like, I ended up going in a slightly different direction...

Marbled Galaxy

I don't often get the urge to water marble, mostly because it is a rather frustrating endeavor for me, but the Dance Legend Galaxy multichromes made me think of an oil slick and I decided the marbled effect would play perfectly into that idea. I put my patience cap on, tried to think good thoughts and channel all the water marble gurus until finally ended up with this manicure...

Select Shades of Dance Legend Galaxy Collection...

Hi Lovelies! Today I'm excited to show you three gorgeous shades from the Dance Legend Galaxy collection. The collection consists of holo multichrome lacquers which to me is like saying, magic! How can you go wrong with holo and multichrome in one bottle? Indoors you see a speckled mutichrome and outdoors the holo bling makes it's presence know...

Genie, you're free!

Hi! Along with the rest of the world I'm in shock and saddened by the death of Robin Williams. I thought I would pay my tribute to this brilliant man and actor who was a part of so many of my favorite movies from Mrs. Doubtfire to Good Will Hunting and of course the voice of Genie in Aladdin. It is sad to learn that the man who sprinkled magic into our lives, put a smile on our faces and made us laugh suffered from severe depression that ended so tragically. Depression is often misunderstood by those who haven't experienced it. It can strike anyone regardless of their status in life, whether they have seemingly everything or nothing at all. Hopefully his death will raise awareness of depression and suicide prevention so that others don't have to suffer or feel they have nothing to live for and no one to turn to...
