Pink Wednesday: China Glaze Electra Magenta konad

I’m still without power at home, but at least the weather is great, very nice and sunny, and I can do my nails by the window with the sunlight. So, I have my Pink Wednesday ready for today! 😀

Haven’t done any stamping in a while, so I gave it try for this mani. I started with two coats of OPI Steady As She Rose and stamped a design from a Konad plate (I don’t have it with me to see the number), with China Glaze Electra Magenta.

I really like how this turned out, even though I missed a spot on my pinky, it’s a cute stamp! Happy Wednesday! 😀

Pink Wednesday: Pink Sponging

Today I just have a quick iPhone pic (also I’m posting this from my phone so I hope it works), because I’m not feeling too good and I’m exhausted, I didn’t sleep until 4:30am and woke at 6:30, I just got back from work so all I want to do is go to bed.

I wanted to try sponging with three different pinks in a gradient and this is how it came out:

I used Orly Lollipop for the base, then I sponged OPI Sparrow Me the Drama on top and sponged the tips with Essie Big Spender. It was fun but I need more practice!
Also, what is that black string on my ring finger? I didn’t see it until after I applied top coat so I’m sure it came from my SV brush! It really bothers me but it was too late to redo that nail. Silly SV!

My Harry Potter nails!

So I’m a huge HP obsessed person, and I think anyone who know me knows this too by now. I went to see Deathly Hallows at midnight, and since it’s the last time I did a HP themed mani:

I did the house colors in each nail. I used tape but was too impatient and I didn’t wait until the base color was completely dry so it’s a little messy. For Gryffindor I used Essie Limited Addiction and China Glaze 2030, Slytherin was OPI Jade is the New Black and China Glaze Millennium, Ravenclaw was China Glaze First Mate and I didn’t have any bronze colors so I used 2030 again, and for Hufflepuff I realized I don’t have any yellow cremes so I used China Glaze Lighthouse and Sinful Colors Black on Black.

And this is my thumb:

Lighting bolt using the Gryffindor colors.

Overall, I was happy with how it turned out even though I did this in a rush and it’s not perfect.

The movie was awesome! I’m always bothered with the changes they make in the movies but I know by now that it has to be expected and I don’t take it too seriously anymore. This way I was able to really enjoy the movie! I will probably go see it again while it’s still out in theaters but it’s a little sad that there won’t be another midnight Harry Potter opening 😦

OPI Planks a Lot with Milani Purple Gleam

Hello! I’m back from my wedding/honeymoon/house-buying and everything else! 😀

This is OPI Planks a Lot from their new POTC collection:

Pretty dusty purple!

And I added some lines using tape and Milani Purple Gleam:

First time I tried something like this, it’s not perfect but I’m ok with it, my SV started bubbling though, not sure why.

Color Club NOTD

I wanted a purple mani and to do some stamping, so I came up with this:

I used CC Pucci-licious and a BM design with CC Fashion Addict. The holo in the stamp looked very pretty in the sunlight and I like this star design, but I had such a hard time applying Pucci-licious that I’m not too pleased with how this turned out. I just couldn’t get it work, it was all streaky and smudgey, so it looks awful, I think CC and I don’t get along 😦
But anyway, I still enjoyed looking at the holo stars in the sun!

Two more pictures:

Essie Playa del Platinum

This is Essie Playa del Platinum from their Resort collection.

Love this color! I almost didn’t get it but decided to get the four colors in the collection anyway, and I’m glad I did because I’ve tried all four now and they are all lovely! 😀

And after a couple of days I added some nail decals on top:

Here is a closer look at the decals:

I liked how this turned out, and it lasted for days! I finally changed it because I wanted to try a new color and the decals were starting to fall out, but the polish stayed perfect! 😀
