Creamsicle Water Marble

Ready for another water marble?! I've been obsessed with water marbling for the last few months! I've been practicing and gotten so much better, so all I want to do is marble ALL THE NAILS. Today I used polish by ellagee for an awesome, orange creamsicle-ish mani!

I began with two coats of Wrapped in Ribbon, a shimmery white cream polish. I then marbled Delilah, a peach cream, and Wrapped in Ribbon for the look you see below. What are your favorite polishes to marble with? I'm always looking for new ones to try! Enjoy! :)

Slytherin Nails

{Nothing to Disclose}

March is Reading Month was Superhero themed at my school, and one of the days was Villain Day. I chose to dress up as Draco Malfoy, so I wanted some Slytherin inspired nails to go along with my costume. I didn't want to be OVERLY Slytherin because, let's face it, it's Slytherin and I am obviously a Gryffindor. ;P Hahaha! I began with a base of two coats of Zoya Ivanka. Ivanka is one of the first Zoya's I ever purchased, and I still adore her! I then used Zoya Tilda, Purity, and Willa to dot on a snake skin-esque design on my ring and pinkie nails. Enjoy! :)

Jelly Sandwiched Stickers

{Press Sample Stickers}

I have some more stickers from Born Pretty Store to show you today! This set of stickers is white, and they come on a huge sheet with a ton of designs just like the silver ones I showed you the other day! This set is $6.20 and definitely worth the cost. 

I began with two coats of Zoya Paloma, a gorgeous raspberry jelly polish. I then added some swirl stickers to the tips of all of my nails except for my accent nail. One that nail, I added a smile sticker. These stickers easily pull off the sheet and stick to your nail. Once I had all of the stickers on, I did one coat of ellagee's Rainbow Syrup to add some holo awesomeness. Next, I sandwiched it all in with another coat of Paloma, which is why the white decals are tinted pink. Finally, I completed the look with one coat of top coat! Enjoy! :)

ATC and Silver 3D Stickers

{Press Sample Decals}

I recently purchased ellagee's Bunny Box, and even though it was a fast sellout, I was lucky enough to snag one with my speedy digits! :) I'll be showcasing some goodies from the box over the next few weeks! Today my nail art features Above the Curve's Rockin Robin. Holy moly, I am in LOVE with this polish! It's my first ATC polish, and I am really impressed with it. It's a robin's egg blue with holo shimmer and dark blue flecks. So, so pretty! 

After applying two coats of Rockin Robin, I used some silver stickers from the Born Pretty Store to add a little flair! :) These stickers are $4.96 and the sheet of them you get is HUGE! There are some many designs on it, I had a hard time choosing which ones to use. I settled on the dots, but I already have a ton of plans for the other ones. These are definitely more than worth the price, and I would readily purchase them. They peel easily from the sheet. I used tweezers and transferred them right to my nail. One coat of top coat completed the entire look! Remember, if you use the code HTCG10 at Born Pretty Store, you get 10% off of your order! Also, shipping is always free no matter where you live. Enjoy! :)

Indie Spotlight: Starrily Gumballs

{Personal Purchase}

I recently saw some pictures on Instagram of Starrily's Gumballs polish, and I immediately knew I had to add her to my collection! Circle glitter in a variety of neon shades?! YES, PLEASE! A polish like this practically screams my name!

I struggled with what to use as a base for these. I didn't want plain white or black, and most of the neon colors I considered using would've washed out one or more of the glitters. SO, I settled on a distressed black and white base. I used I See London by Digital Nails on all of my nails for the base, except for my accent nail, which began with two coats of I See France. When all was said and done, you can't really tell that my accent nail began as a black base while the rest were a white base, but oh well! :) 

Once those base colors were dry, I distressed them with the opposite color. Remember, this is done by wiping the brush off of the neck of the bottle until you feel like it's mostly dry. Then, you drag it over your nail until you're satisfied with the look. When the distressing was done, I added one coat of Gumballs, one coat of top coat, and I was ready to go! Enjoy! :)

Spring French Tips

{Press Sample}

I have another look for you today using SinfulColors' new Spring 2015 collection, Spring Fever! I really like how bright and bold this collection it! The cost is helpful too, with each polish costing $1.99 at Walgreens, CVS, Meijer, etc. For these colorful nails, I began with two coats of base color. My pinkie is Energetic Red, my ring nail is Innocent (remember, this one will stain your nail a yellowish color), my middle nail is Feel the Vibe, and my index nail is Thimbleberry. Once each base color was dry, I used some french tip nail vinyls and Why Not to create the funky french you see below! These were so fun, and I received a lot of compliments on them! Hopefully they'll help usher spring in to the frigid Midwest! :) We're still freezing here! Hahahaha! Enjoy! :)
