Nicole by OPI, One Less Lonely Glitter

So I’ve been on the hunt for this purple glitter for a while now. YES, it IS a Justin Bieber polish from the One Less Lonely Girl Collection- in his fave color. Luckily T.J. Maxx had it in a combo pack. So they ended up being…$3 a piece? Pretty good considering they’re more then double that at Target and Walmart. Can’t beat a good deal…and pretty glitter. O.O

Nicole by OPI. One Less Lonely Glitter

One Less Lonely Glitter is one full coat on the ring finer and dabbed on the tips of the rest. I can see me using this glitter on LOTS of other colors. Very pretty, very easy to work with, subtle but pretty. Lavender glitter in a clear base could be opaque in 3-4 coats I bet. A right hand photo did you notice that? Haha, kind hard to do but its done lol.

Here’s a quick look at Sinful Colors Slate that I use underneath. 3 easy coats super nice and smooth. Subtle silver shimmer though it.

Sinful Colors, Slate

Sooooo pretty!

P.S. Sorry I didn’t clean up for some strange reason, I must have been to excited to photograph it. 😛

Batik Inspired

For those who like to quilt or sew or may recognize the term batik. For those who don’t- it’s a type of dyed fabric. To be more accurate, its a type of dying technique. Not that it’s important to the tutorial you can learn more here.  Anyways, getting back on track now. I was admiring a scrap piece of batik fabric laying around my children’s great grandma’s sewing room and thought it would make a fun nail art design.  The awesome thing I think about batiks is that not one single square inch is exactly the same as any other.  Some places may be shaded a like but not as if it was patterned. (BEHIND the pattern! You know what I mean :P) I had a lot of fun making this video! I hope you enjoy!

What I Used:

  • “Medium” Puple: Sinful Colors “Verbena”
  • Magenta: Essie “Big Spender”
  • Dark Purple: Pure Ice “No Means No”
  • Shimmery Purple: Sally Hansen X-treme Wear “Virtual Violet”
  • Pinky Purple: Sinful Colors “Let Me Go”
  • Light Pink for DOTS:  Nicole by OPI “Kim-pletely In Love”

Tools:

  • A porous sponge ( You can use a regular cosmetic sponge but I like the other better)
  • Tweezers, for the sponge.
  • Dotting tools ( Or hair pins, sewng pins, toothpicks…you get the idea)

So for those of you paying attention- look up EpicMealTime on youtube!  Take a wild guess at what the next design I’m working on next. 😀
