The other day I saw some lady wearing a similar combo and it inspired me to try to recreate a similar look. I used one coat of Revlon Hot For Chocolate for the base with one coat of Sinful All About you on top. I really like the dark base with the gold and copper-orange glitter on top… it reminds me of fall. And since I will most likely be wearing all holiday colors once December rolls around I figured I might as well get in a few last autumn-esque manis while I still can.
Revlon Talk Dirty. What a name winner. I’ve really been in the mood for wearing black nail polish lately and despite the fact that black is my favorite color of nail polish, my collection of black polishes is fairly small. Back in the day when all I wore was black polish, I basically stuck to wearing Wet N Wild Black Creme only. Since I’ve worn that like, five times lately I decided I would wear a black with a little more oomph that I haven’t yet shared with you guys. Talk Dirty is a black creme with slightly noticeable antique gold shimmer that slightly glitters red and green when the sunlight hits it. It’s been dark and grey here in So Cal for the last few days and the sun literally came out for about two seconds while I was taking the first picture, where if you view it full size, you can see the pretty shimmer.
And while we’re on the topic of black polish, what are some of your favorite black polishes or some of your favorite sheer polishes to later over black?
so that I could recreate the look. Since I never actually figured out what she is wearing, I decided to create my own similar look as best I could. I used Revlon Hot For Chocolate, a dark chocolate brown creme that’s opaque in one coat with Sally Hansen Set The Stage, a clear base with light gold small square and large hex glitter. In the picture, Freida’s gold glitter appears to me more of a true gold but I think I did a pretty good job. It fulfilled the lemming and that’s what matters.
Morning! Today I’m sharing with you one of my favorite Island Girl polishes. This is Island Girl Hula Girl. It’s a bright tropical blue with light blue-turquoise shimmer. The only downer about this polish is that it’s very sheer. I think this was five or six coats… I can’t remember exactly cause after four I usually stop counting. On the up side, Island Girl polishes dry fairly fast so even with five (possibly plus) coats, it still had pretty good dry time.
I decided since I have done Konad nail art in quite a long time I would spruce up this Hula Girl mani just a bit…
On top of Hula Girl I added one coat of Sinful Hottie. Then I stamped on an image from Bundle Monster plate BM-225 using Sinful What’s Your Name?, and then topped it all off with one coat of Revlon Glimmer Gloss in Blueberry Burst. I quite like the end result. I chose this image cause the swirls remind me of crashing waves and I was going for something summery.
Are you still wearing summer polish this last month of summer of have you moved on to fall colors already?
Okay, so they’re not exactly fireworks… but I tried. This is Revlon Frankly Scarlet topped with Color Club Art Of Seduction. I then added nail art with L.A. Girls Nail Art in White and Blue and topped it off with KleanColor Silver Star. This is my first 4th of July mani and I plan to do a few more before the big day arrive. I’m so excited… I love 4th of July!!!
Are you planning on doing a 4th of July themed manicure or pedicure?
Revlon Tropical Temptation… the name says it all. It’s a squishy, juicy pink-coral-salmon creme that reminds me of the color of grapefruit and makes me wish I were on an island soaking up some rays. Seriously, I got so many compliments on this color, it’s not even funny. Even from two men. Men!! Tropical Temptation would be the prefect summer pedi color if you’re looking for something bright and summery but not too flashy. I can just see this color on my toes as I squish them through the sand on the beach. Oooooh… how I looooove Summer!!
It’s Friday! Smile
I decided to play around with blending myself since I liked the blended look that my friend Amanda did on me a few days ago. I like to wear extreme, bright, vibrant eye shadow sometimes for fun but I usually just wear it wet as an under eye eyeliner because I’m not very good at blending stark colors as a whole eyelid look to make them look good. Good thing Amanda made me realize that I already own a good blending brush (the one she used on my previous eye of the day look) and that I just need to use it for it’s purpose… for eye lid color blending, not as a under eye highlighter *face palm*. Anyways, this is my first own blending attempt since learning how to do it properly. I used Urban Decay Asphyxia on the inner eye, Bare Escentuals Beach Goddess on the outer eye, Jesse’s Girl Earthtone in the crease, and Bare Escentuals Vanilla Sugar under the brows as a highlighter. Also used was Bare Escentuals Brow Colo in Dark Blonde/Medium Brown, Revlon ColorStay eyeliner in Back, and Bare Escentuals Flawless Definition Volumizing Mascara in Black.
