I set fire to the rain! And painted my nails with it.


So laqueristas.. I’ve been in a creative slump lately and this was kind of an emergency mani. I used Bluey by Butter London as the base which let me tell you was NO EASY JOB! It took 3 coats to get it completely covered and it refused to dry! After nearly 2 hours under my UV Lamp it still wasn’t even tacky! I don’t know what caused it.. it wasn’t even that hot out! Well after finally getting Bluey to dry I used Chunky Holo Poppy by Klean Color and my dotting tool to get little dots of my favorite to date holo jelly color, its beautiful little orange holographic bits of chunky glitter suspended in a orange transparent base, it shimmers like living flames. I tried to capture the color changing properties of the dots in my pics. Enjoy 🙂

So followers.. what do YOU do when you need an emergency mani (your current one flakes past repair) and inspiration is missing?


Blue Morpho butterfly wings mani

I had a lot of fun doing this look especially since it was my first time doing the butterfly wing design. I love the base color, it was my first time doing marbling with the polish already on my nails. I started out with one coat of China Glaze’s Deviantly Daring and adding a drop of Party In The Penthouse by Nicole and Bluey by Butter London and used my dotting tool to marble the colors. I then did the lines with Charcoal by Klean Color and instead of white dots I used Stroke of Brilliance by Essie. Now when I completed the lines and accents I found that the lines didn’t show so I used Chunky Holo Poppy to accent the lines and of course a generous helping of Seche Ultra V to finish off the rest!

Now confession time.. I wont say that this is my best look and it didn’t really feel like it came out the exact way I wanted it and plan to try the monarch wing design again at a later time with some tweaks.

Added tips to Starry Mosaic~

 So as you all know I just got 2 lovely colors by Butter London yesterday Bluey and Tart With A Heart and I have been just ITCHING to try them out, especially since they were 14$ a bottle! So after much tinkering around with my stamping plates and a piece of art paper to test out possibilities before actually applying them to my manicure, I decided to just do a thin french tip on each nail with Bluey by Butter London. I adore the look, it provides a nice contrast to the holographic topcoat shimmering over the rest of the nail while the color works perfectly with the blue and silver shimmering mosaic pattern. So with no further ado here are some pictures

Also just a reminder I am still running that contest to win 1 free bottle of nail polish  please don’t miss out!
