Watercolour and Roses

I really wanted a floral, specifically cute little roses this week.

June/16/2013 to June/22/2013
The watercolour nails look like my bedspread hahah. I did those by using acetone to water down the polishes and that's how they made that blended look. I did roses on my thumb and ring finger, although it would've looked nicer if I went blue and purple flowers as opposed to pink and yellow.

On a side note, I cut into my middle finger with a butcher's knife last week while trying to chop up some stuff, so you won't be seeing that finger in my posts for a while until it has healed up.

Colours used:

"Don't Touch My Tutu" O.P.I
"Posh Plum" Sally Hansen
"Va Va Voom" Orly
"Blue Sparrow(Neon)" China Glaze
"Turned up Turquoise (Neon)" China Glaze

And some silver holo glitter bought at a local craft store.

Rose Among Thorns

Really simple for this week.

June/09/2013 to June/15/2013
The colours used were "Rose Among Thorns (Neon)" and "Tempt Carnation" by China Glaze. The stripes were done using striping tape and I then added some gold studs I got from the BornPrettyStore

Water Decals

I think it was last year, but I bought a set of 20 different water decal full nail strips, and here's one of them:

This weekend was really busy so I needed to do something really fast, and these water decals are good for those days. It took me about 20 minutes to get these all done, they are a little tricky to work with though.

Have a good week!

Butterflies and Rosebuds: Swatch

Here's another Julie G. by Jesse's Girl polish swatch:

"Butterflies and Rosebuds"

 This is a beautiful metallic magenta. It's a great combination of pink and purple, and metallic shimmer.

Direct Sunlight.
This is with 2 coats, it went on nice and smooth with no streaking. It dried nice and quick too. This colour also maintains a nice gloss to it once dried.

I'll update on the wear once I've worn it longer.

Cotton Candy

This manicure reminds me a lot of the cotton candy clouds you get at fairs and such.

May/26/2013 to May/31/2013
 So a did a simple ombre using "Tickled Pink" by Wet n' Wild and "Pastel Blue" from Kleancolor. I topped it off with Kleancolor's Aurora because it's just too pretty not to use on these pastel manicures.
