31 Day Challenge: Day 22 – Inspired By A Song (Gangnam Style Nails)!

21

Hey Everyone!

OOooooh man. This is hands down my favorite day of the 31 Day Challenge 2012 so far! Today’s theme for Day 22 is ‘Inspired By A Song’, and this was another day where I knew exactly what I wanted to do from the beginning of the challenge. There’s a million pictures so let’s just get straight to it! :-D

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 22 – Inspired By A Song (Gangnam Style Nails)!

Oppa Gangnam Nails!

Hahahaaa! I am so so SO happy with how these turned out! I was first introduced to this song by the K-Pop artist Psy by my boyfriend back in the beginning of August. I laughed so friggin hard that I was in tears. This song is infections, and the accompanying music video is absolutely hilarious! I joked around for a while about doing Gangnam nails, so once I decided to do this challenge with Sam and Cris my day 22 nails were a no brainer. :-D

If you somehow have been living under a rock and haven’t heard the song or seen the music video for Gangnam Style, I’ve included it at the bottom of this post. :P

The scene in the music video where Psy and the dancers are covered in white debris always cracks me up. So I’m happy that I was able to recreate that with mah nails. Excuse the awkward hang pose but it’s hard to get my thumb and pointer finger to cooperate. ;)

Takko Lacquer Winter Collection 2012 – With A Surprise!

5

Takko Lacquer Holiday_Winter 2012

Afternoon Ladies!

I have two blog posts for you today because I really wanted you all to have a chance to take a gander at these beauties before Sheryl re-opened her shop on Friday! I am pleased to introduce you to the Takko Lacquer Winter Collection! I’m on a glorious cocktail of cold meds so I’ll keep this intro short and sweet, so let’s get right into the swatches! :-P

 


We’re All Mad Here

Takko Lacquer - We're All Mad Here 5
Takko Lacquer - We're All Mad Here 2
Takko Lacquer - We're All Mad Here 3
OMG Y’all. We’re All Mad Here is flippin GORGEOUS!! Plus its name is a nod to Alice in Wonderland, what’s not to love here?! We’re All Mad Here is a stunning deep blue jelly with green flakies and orange shimmer. I mean… WOW. Pictures really don’t do this one justice, you NEED to see it in person. We’re All Mad Here is a slightly deeper blue than what my camera was able to pick up, and the shimmer is noticeable in even low light! Take the shimmer you see in my photos and intensify it (closer to what it looks like inside the bottle), and that’s what you get in person. :-D

This is 3 coats. You see a teeny bit of VNL in these shots but it’s not that noticeable in person. You could get away with 2 coats if you didn’t mind a little VNL. Application was a breeze, this polish spread like butter over my nails and built up nicely.

Va Va Voom

Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom 1
Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom 2
Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom 5
Va Va Voom is a metallic deep wine red with strong scattered/mild linear holo finish. I DIE! The color and holo effect deepen depending on your lighting but the holographic finish is visible in almost all lighting. Shown above is Va Va Voom in direct light from my light box. This is 2 thin coats! Va Va Voom had a perfect formula. Not too thin but not so thick that I had trouble applying it. The dry time was very quick!

Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom 4
And here it is with indirect lightbox er… lighting. :P
Takko Lacquer - Va Va Voom (Flash)
And this is Va Va Voom with camera flash. If any nail polish deserves its name, this is it! Look how intense the red is now! I cannot wait until I get a chance to see Va Va Voom in direct sunlight, I think I might never take it off. ;)

Introducing Takko Mani-Bombs!

Takko Lacquer Mani-Bombs
And here’s the surprise I mentioned in my post title, introducing Takko Lacquer Mini-Bombs! These little beauties were created by Sheryl as a thank you for all the love and support the nail polish world has shown her since she opened her Etsy shop doors earlier this year. If you’re familiar with bath fizzies/bath bombs, this is a similar idea. But these mani-bombs are all about caring for your beautiful hands. You drop it in a container filled with warm water large enough to fit your hands, and it fizzes up almost immediately. Then the magic begins. ;)

The mani-bombs release Vitamin E and Aloe Vera to nourish your skin, cuticles and nails. It then leaves behind a Shea Butter and sugar scrub combo that you use to scrub, exfoliate and moisturize your skin, help with peeling nails and dry cuticles. I used one of the mani-bombs before I swatched We’re All Mad Here and Va Va Voom. They have a very light powdery scent, it’s almost undetectable. I couldn’t smell it but I also have a cold. My boyfriend said it smelled nice though, so it shouldn’t overpower your lotions or perfumes. ^_^ My hands felt absolutely amaaazing afterward. The sugar scrub was very gentle, and once I rinsed off the leftover scrub the shea butter was easy to massage into the skin on my hands (and elbows, hah!) and my cuticles. It absorbed into my skin after a few minutes and didn’t leave any greasy residue. I’m sold!

And you want to hear the best news about the mani-bombs?

They’re FREE!

As a thank you for all of her customers, Sheryl will be including one mani-bomb as a free gift with each purchase for the rest of 2012! This will start on Friday, November 16th. :-D
Takko Lacquer New vs Old Label
And one last miscellaneous photo for you all. It looks like there was a slight label change! On the right (Kiss The Sky), you can see the old slightly rounded frosted label and on the left (We’re All Mad Here) you have the new clear rectangular labels. Nothing drastic, just something I noticed! ^_^


Final Thoughts:

Sheryl never ceases to amaze me with everything that she has to offer. She seriously produces some of the best indie nail polishes out there in my opinion, and she is such a sweetheart! So if you hadn’t guessed yet, I absolutely adore both of Sheryl’s new babies. We’re All Mad Here combines several of my nail polish loves: blue, green, orange, flakies, and jelly! The list of red polishes that I love is pretty small, but Va Va Voom has a place on that list now because it is EVERYTHING. Perfect formula, a gorgeous rust hue and holographic finish. Be still my heart. I really can’t pick a favorite so you basically need both of these suckers. ;)

And the mani-bombs are perfect and just in time for the winter months that always take a toll on my nails and skin. I hope you all enjoy them as much as I do! Sheryl will be including instructions on how to use them in each package since they’re a little different from a typical bath bomb.

Purchase Info:

Takko Lacquer nail polishes can be purchased at the Takko Lacquer Etsy Shop! They retail at $15.00 per .5 fl oz bottle of polish. She DOES offer international shipping! Check out her shop policy page for more details on that.

Another great thing is that she restocks often, usually about once a week. So if you missed one sale you have another chance to snag your favorites the following week! She’s opening up her shop again this weekend on Friday, November 16th at around 1pm so mark your calendars! :)

To keep up to date with restocking news and other updates you can follow the Takko Lacquer Blog, the Etsy Shop or her new Twitter account!

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 21 – Inspired By A Color

3

Hey Everyone!

Welcome to another day of the 31 Day Challenge 2012! Today’s theme for Day 21 is ‘Inspired By A Color’, which is such a vague theme. I mean… The entire first week of the challenge was inspired by color, don’t ya think? ;) I didn’t really know what direction I wanted to go in with this one so I just did a skittle mani. That’s inspired by several colors, right? :-D

I’ve been meaning to play with several of my new glitter polishes that I got last month, so here they are! Let’s see if I remember the names of everything because I’m awesome and didn’t write anything down when I wore this last week. :-D
31DC2012 Day 21 - Inspired by Color 4
Smitten Polish ERMAHGERD, CANDY CORMS. I really… REALLY hate the whole “Ermahgerd” meme so the name of this one drives me up the wall. It was funny at first but it’s seriously been beaten into the ground. -_- But the polish itself is pretty! It was a bit of a pain to work with, goopy/thick but worth the headache. I think if I add thinner it might help.
31DC2012 Day 21 - Inspired by Color 5
This is Accessorize Nail Speckle Bumble Bee. I layered it over OPI Hi, Pumpkin!. This one was a gift to me from my pal Esther in the UK. Thanks lady! :-D
31DC2012 Day 21 - Inspired by Color 6
This is Whimsical Ideas by Pam Wicked! I fell in love with this one after seeing Jen’s swatches. ^_^ I layered it over…. I think Essie Mojito Madness, but I honestly can’t remember anymore.
31DC2012 Day 21 - Inspired by Color 7
This is the other Accessorize Nail Speckle polish that Esther sent me for my birthday. It’s called Butterfly, I layered this one over a white creme. :)
31DC2012 Day 21 - Inspired by Color 8
I think this was my favorite combination! This is OPI Candlelight with 1 coat of Cagedbird Nail Lacquer Hallowishes layered over it. I loooove the combination of the orange, purple and star glitter. I didn’t even have to fish around for the stars, it had perfect application! ^_^

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 20 – Water Marble Nails!!

8

Hey Everyone!

I’m back with the most dreaded day of the 31 Day Challenge 2012, Water Marble Day!! Water Marbling is a world of fun and delight for some nail art enthusiasts, and the bane of human existence for others. I think I fall somewhere in between the two extremes haha! I for the life of me cannot consistently produce the same design for each nail so my water marbles always turn out a bit more abstract, and I’m totally fine with that! :)

I wanted to produce something fall themed since Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and I think I was successful. ^_^

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 20 – Water Marble Nails!

31DC2012 Day 20 Water Marble 631DC2012 Day 20 Water Marble 2
31DC2012 Day 20 Water Marble 1
This is the first time I used mostly dark colors for a water marble. I was worried that it would turn out muddy, but I actually like how dark and subtle some of the nails turned out! I’m still working on where exactly to place my damn fingers in the water to get the best pattern, but this is only my 3rd water marble ever and there’s certainly a learning curve to contend with here. :P

I started off with Takko Lacquer’s The Electric Apple: NYC as my base. Then I haphazardly used the following polishes in my marbling. ;)

Polished Used:
OPI Live And Let Die
OPI Casino Royale
Essie Miss Fancy Pants
Takko Lacquer Kiss The Sky
Color Club Insta-This

I love the subtle shimmer spread out in each nail from Kiss The Sky and Live And Let Die. I actually re-dipped my ring finger because I wasn’t happy with the original design. Can you tell? ^_^

31DC2012 Day 20 Water Marble 5
And of course out of ten fingers, my thumb (the one I did last) would come out with the best marble pattern. :-P But honestly I think my pinky finger is my favorite. The swirling reminds me of a purple, grey, and green version of the clouds from The Scream by Edvard Munch. :D

I’d also like to mention that of all the days for me to run out of scotch tape to protect my skin from nail polish armageddon, water marble day is probably the worst. I had enough tape left on my roll as I started this process to cover exactly two of my fingers! 8O I vaguely remembered reading somewhere on the internet that a person had used Aquaphor to serve as a barrier between their skin and the nail polish while doing a water marble. Since I had nothing to lose, I tried it out and it worked! I slathered the Aquaphor on my fingers up to my knuckles on each finger, making sure I carefully covered the skin around my cuticles without getting any on my nail beds. And then when it was time to clean the polish off, all I had to do was wipe it away with a Q-Tip! I didn’t even have issues with nail polish pooling in my cuticles like I usually do when I water marble. I’m never using tape for a water marble again! :-D


That’s it for today! What do you think about water marbling? Love it or hate it? Love seeing others do it but think it’s too hard to try for yourself? Which nail from my water marble is your favorite?

Don’t forget to check out Sam and Cris today for their water marble nail looks! :D

NOTD: Sephora by OPI It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat!

8

Morning Lovelies!

I’ve had this sitting on my flicker account for a while now so I figured I would post it before I completely forgot about it. So it may not be what’s actually on my nails right now, but it was a NOTD at one point last month. :-P

Now let me tell you a little story…

Once upon a time there was a girl named Rie who REALLY wanted one of those awesome gold top coat nail polishes that are all the rage right now. She’d been lusting after OPI’s The Man With The Golden Gun for a bit, and Sephora by OPI It’s Real for even longer. But the $30 price tag was holding her back. Then one day, a lovely person on Instagram posted about SOPI It’s Real being on sale for $8 at Sephora locations inside of JC Penny’s stores! What great news! Except for the fact that there was no such store in Rie’s neck of the woods (aka the middle of nowhere). Not being one to keep this news to herself, Rie passed on the good word to her Instagram and Twitter followers and friends. If she couldn’t have the SOPI, at least others would have a chance right? ^_^ But hark! An amazing and wonderful reader named Christina came to Rie’s rescue. As a thank you for spreading the word, this amazing gal offered to snag a bottle of It’s Real for Rie out of the kindness of her heart. And for that, she rocks. So thank you Christina!! :-D

 


Sephora by OPI It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat and Barry M Cobalt Blue

I knew right away that I wanted to pair this top coat with a blue. So I picked out my new favorite blue creme, Barry M Cobalt Blue (don’t I have a new favorite each month? :P) and used 2 coats as my base. A special thank you goes to Hannah of Polly Polish for sending this Barry M polish my way for my birthday. And Hannah, you’ll be happy to know that my Christmas presents remain unopened. ^_~ After that I put 2 coats of SOPI It’s Real on top. LOOOOOVVEEEEEEE!!! :-D

I absolutely love this combination, and I love the smaller gold particles in It’s Real since it looks like all the other gold top coats out there have large/irregular gold flakes. It’s Real was a breeze to work with and there was no grittiness even before I added my top coat.

So basically we’re in love. I already have plans to introduce It’s Real to some nice seafoam green, red, and royal purple nail polishes in the near future. ;)


Don’t you all just love this? How many times can I say the word “love” in one post?! :-P

I’m not sure if SOPI It’s Real 18K Gold Top Coat is still on sale at the Sephora/JC Penny’s locations for $8, but it’s definitely on sale for $15 on Sephora.com right now! I did finally get my hands on the Zoya Gilty Pleasures 18K Gold Top Coat Trio so I definitely plan to show you that one soon with some comparison shots. ^_^

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 19 – Galaxy Drip Nails!

7

Hey Everyone!

I’m back again with Sam and Cris today for Day 19 of the 31 Day Challenge 2012! I’m back with another well-intentioned, but poorly executed, nail art day. I am really striking out this weekend, blargh. I’ve been wanting to try these Galaxy Drip Nails from Coewless for ages and I had them planned for Day 19 of the challenge from the start. And I’m sure these would have turned out much better if I didn’t have to try to rush to get them done before my midnight shift last night. I seriously almost cried when I was done with these because I absolutely hated them and didn’t have time to redo them. :?

I contemplated not posting at all today, or just redoing them after I got home from work in the morning and making this an afternoon post. But my stomach is seriously still in knots (I might have food poisoning?!?) and I just want to go to bed when I get home at 8am. :( But let me stop playing the world’s tiniest violin for myself and get on with the show here…

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 19 – (Sketchy) Galaxy Drip Nails!

31DC2012 Day 19 Galaxy 1
31DC2012 Day 19 Galaxy 2
See… My accent nail and my pinky came out exactly how I wanted them to. The other nails? Errr, not-so-much. :-P

Everything was going fine and well until I had to do cleanup around my drips. My white nail polish was just not opaque enough. And then I tried to use my white acrylic polish from Born Pretty that I got last year during my previous 31 Day Challenge and it was a gooey, tacky, stringy effing mess. My roomie saved the day by loaning me her white acrylic paint but at that point it was almost time for me to go to work and my hand got shaky on my last three nails. At that point I was just stressed, irritated with myself and just wanted to take the photos I needed and get it over with. Bah. Humbug. ;)
31DC2012 Day 19 Galaxy 3

Polishes I Used

A LOT.


That’s it for today! I’m trying to tell myself that this was just my first attempt, and that the next time I try this I know it will turn out better. I’m determined to master this technique because it just looks so damn awesome! ^_^

Don’t forget to check out Sam and Cris today for their galaxy nail looks, because I’m sure they did much better than me. :D

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 18 – Half Moon Nails!

3

Hey Everyone!

I’m back again with Sam and Cris today for Day 18 of the 31 Day Challenge 2012! I wanted to do something a little different from your typical Half Moon mani, so I attempted Peter Pan Collar nails for the first time. BIG FLOP. :(

I was a bit rushed on these (trying to get them done before work) so I’m not entirely happy with how they turned out. Ah well, I can’t hit every ball out of the park, eh? :-P

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 18 – Half Moon Nails

31DC2012 Day 18 - Half Moon 1
31DC2012 Day 18 - Half Moon 2
31DC2012 Day 18 - Half Moon 3
NAILED IT. I started with A England Camelot as my base polish. Then I used a white nail art polish for the shitty collars, and finished it off with the gold microbeads. I’d like to try this look again when I have more time to take my time and get it perfect. ^_^


That’s it for today! I know these could have turned out a lot worse, but I’m bummed that I didn’t have something to really wow you guys today. There’s always Sunday! :-D

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 17 – Glitter With Fanchromatic Nails!

8

Hey Everyone!

And guess who forgot to post on Thursday? This girl!!! :P Better late than never, here’s my Day 17 glitter nails for the 31 Day Challenge 2012 I’m doing with Sam and Cris.

I have been meaning to swatch and review my pretties from Fanchromatic Nails for way too long so let’s kill to birds with one stone. Day 18 will be at it’s regularly scheduled time at 6am EST. ;)

Lynae, the creator of Fanchromatic Nails, is woman after my own nerdy/geeky little heart and she bases her polishes off a wide variety of fandoms. And you know me, if it’s based off of a tv show, game, book/comic or movie I love then I’m all for it! Lynae was kind enough to provide me with some of her polishes to review so let’s get to it! :-D

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 17 – Glitter With Fanchromatic Nails

Fanchromatic - Heart Of Gold 1
Fanchromatic - Heart Of Gold 2
Fanchromatic - Heart Of Gold 3
Lynae describes Heart Of Gold as “a very noble, exotic, yet dusty shade of purple, with a beautiful green sparkle. It includes different shades of green, grey, gold, purple, and copper glitter, many of them holographic.” This one was inspired by an episode of Firefly and a hooker with a ‘heart of gold’. I am a HUGE Firefly fan, and this particular episode was one of my favorites. “Say goodbye to your daddy, Jonah…” :-D

Heart Of Gold is fairly sheer, but built up nicely after 3 coats. I however didn’t wait long enough for it to dry before I added my Glitter Tamer and Seche Vite top coat and dragged the polish a little bit. You can see it especially badly on my ring finger, whoops. :?
Fanchromatic - She Is Confused 1
Fanchromatic - She Is Confused 2
Fanchromatic - She Is Confused 3
She Is Confused is a fun periwinkle blue glitter party with a jelly base, haha! It’s pretty sheer, I used 4 coats here and you can still see a bit of VNL. I’ll definitely be layering this one next time. Anyone know of a good periwinkle blue creme polish that they can recommend to me? :-D This one is inspired by Ezri Dax from Star Trek. I am a bad geek and I know absolutely nothing about Star Trek, but I like this polish because it reminds me of blue funfetti! I have a random little piece of bar glitter on my ring finger, I wish there was more!
Fanchromatic - The Man In The Moon 1
Fanchromatic - The Man In The Moon 2
Fanchromatic - The Man In The Moon 3
The Man in the Moon is “a white jelly polish with silver and pale blue glitter in different sizes, filled with a beautiful, soft golden-white flakie shimmer.” This was my absolute favorite of the three that I tried! This is 4 thin coats, but again I think this one is best suited for layering with an opaque (or jelly…) white polish. It’s like winter in a bottle! Lynae based this one off of the long canceled show Carnival, which I’ve heard was amazing and I have yet to watch it. C’mon Netflix, add it to streaming already! ;)


 

Final Thoughts:

Overall I enjoyed all three of these nail polishes! All three had great formulas that were easy to work with. I didn’t have to do any fishing to make the glitter evenly distribute on my nails, and all three are unique to my collection. And when you have over 1,000 polishes in your collection that’s quite a feat! ;)

The texture on all three was pretty smooth before I added top coat. I’m not sure if the Glitter Tamer was necessary but I usually add it to all my glitter polishes before top coat because I prefer a glass smooth finish. ^_^

Purchase Info:

You can purchase any of these polishes featured today and more at the Fanchromatic Nails Etsy Shop. Retail price ranges from $4.25-5.00 for 5mL mini bottles and $8.25-10.75 for 15mL full sized bottles. To stay updated on restocks and new additions, follow Fanchromatic Nails on Facebook. ^_^

Hey Everyone!

*Phew!*

I’m finally caught up with Sam and Cris for the 31 Day Challenge 2012! I’m really happy with how my tribal nails turned out so let’s get right to it! ^_^

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 16 – Tribal Nails

31DC2012 Day 16 Tribal Print 1
31DC2012 Day 16 Tribal Print 2
31DC2012 Day 16 Tribal Print 3
I first saw this look created by Supa Nails and I fell in love. I pinned her Zulu Pop nails to my Pinterest ‘nails to try’ board and then promptly forgot about it, haha. When I was trying to think about what to do for today these popped back into my brain and it was a wrap. :-D
31DC2012 Day 16 Tribal Print 4
31DC2012 Day 16 Tribal Print 5
I used China Glaze Orange Knockout (Neon) as my base, it’s one of my favorite oranges and it’s BRIGHT! I then free-handed the rest with black and white nail art pens, Milani White On The Spot, Sally Hansen Lightening and Essie Lapis Of Luxury.


What do you think of these bright tribal nails everyone? I really like ‘em. But you know how I love my brights. :-D

 

 

31 Day Challenge 2012: Day 15 – Delicate Print!

4

Hey Everyone!

I apologize for this post being WAY late, but this past weekend I got absolutely SWAMPED with work and I simply had no time to do my nails! I powered through Monday night to catch up to Sam and Cris and cranked out designs for Days 13-15 of the 31 Day Challenge 2012 that I’d missed last week. I’m posting them all for you today! ^_^

 


31 Day Challenge 2012 Day 15 – Delicate Print

31DC2012 Day 15 Delicate Print 2
31DC2012 Day 15 Delicate Print 3
I used my all time favorite red, A England Perceval and layered A England Camelot over it with my Bundle Monster stamp BM-201. My boyfriend really loved how this one looked. ^_^


That’s it for now! Next up is Day 16 later this morning! :-D
