Hello lovelies!
So, today is the last day of my Tri Polish Challenge spin off week (and it’s Friday :D!) 2nd week of college, equals done! I’m feeling a little better but I’m still sick and probably won’t do anything except sleep and watch movies all weekend (Hello Jurassic Park marathon) (; I’m totally okay with this! 
On to the nails!

This week was also a lot of experimenting with glequins. I think they’re fun and easy to use but can easily get time consuming and messy. The results are always pretty though!

More after the jump:

Now, I’m really happy with how these nails turned out but I think I would have liked them better if I wore them around Christmas….I don’t know something just says Christmas to me, the accent nails remind of a Christmas tree topper. Who knows? Clearly, not me…haha
Here’s what I used:
Again, glequins can be bought from BornPrettyStore: here! Rhinestones can be found: here. And I suggest everyone go pick up a bottle of New York Color’s Spring Street because it’s absolutely gorgeous and my photos do not do it justice!
I was kind of iffy about the colors of this manicure while wearing it only because the bright, red orange polish made my hands look really tan (which let me tell you, they are not! haha) but the brown was more mellow and kind of washed out my skin tone. Looking back at the photos, it looks okay now though. Maybe I’m just weird about my colors haha, meh.
What do you think of these nails? Would you try them?

I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!

Hello lovelies!
This is my second post of my Tri Polish Challenge-esqe week! Remember, I packed away all my nail polish except for 3 colors and some supplies. 
Now, I almost didn’t post these only because of the picture quality. These were the nails that I wore on the day I moved in and I photographed them before we left. It was like 8am, gross (I’m SO not a morning person D: ) and the lighting was super weird. Please excuse any odd coloring of my fingers.
I’m ranting, ugh. ON TO THE NAILS!
Simple but cute, right? I knew they were going to chip so I didn’t want to bother with anything elaborate. 
More after the jump:

I enjoyed the contrast of the 2 polishes. They’re both pretty bright but this manicure wasn’t clashy. 
Here’s what I used:
Holy cow, color balance! Meh, oh well. The rhinestones were the same ones I bought in a wheel off of eBay for cheap, like these.

 Aside from my “back from the dead” skin tone, what do you think of these nails? Do you like contrasting color manicures? Or is this too clashy for you?

Today’s song:
Man Overboard – White Lies
I hope everyone has a wonderful day! I just want to apologize ahead of time,  if I seem kinda distant or slow replying to comments or on social networks. I woke up really sick yesterday and have hardly been able to muster up the energy to get out of bed for class /: I’ll still be posting though, so stay tuned!

Hello lovelies!
I hope everyone had a great weekend! Mine was super fun but busy, I haven’t done any of homework but thankfully I have classes off this Monday. Score. (:
So, this week is going to be a little different. All my posts this week are from the week leading up to me moving back to college. I had to pack away all my nail polish (I almost cried!) but I left myself out 3 colors and nail art supplies so I could continue to paint my nails. It’s like the Tri Polish Challenge, which I will be starting later this month!
BUT, on to the nails!
Nails, Nail Art, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, Sinful Colors Nirvana, Glequins
Aren’t they pretty? I really enjoyed wearing these nails! The balance of the neutral brown against the bright blue made them really fun and they looked really classy.
More after the jump:

Now, if you’re wondering what those silver hexes are, let me explain! These are commonly known throughout the nail art community as Glequins (dubbed by The Nailasaurus, she’s also done nails like these!). They are just loose glitters that you can place on your nail. I bought a bunch of them from the BornPrettyStore: here. You get a ton in each container. They have a ton of nail art stuff, it’s cheap, and they have worldwide free shipping! I just recently placed an order, can’t wait till it comes!

Here’s what polishes I used for this:

I told you, Endless Blue was like my favorite blue polish ever! Haha. 
I’ve also come to realize that I just simply talk way too much in all my posts, so I’m going to try and cut down on my babble and just show more nails. Sometimes less is more but YEAH! MORE NAILS!
Glequins, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, Sinful Colors Nirvana, Nail Art, Nail Polish
Glequins, Sinful Colors Endless Blue, Sinful Colors Nirvana, Nail Art, Nail Polish, Glitter
So, what do you think? Would you attempt to use glequins? How about the framed nail look?

P.S- Have I ever mentioned that I really like puns? I just really suck at making them hehehe

Hello lovelies!

I’m back again with a 2nd post for today! I should probably stop doing this or else some people might start thinking that I’m actually really doing 2 posts on Sundays haha.

But I was nominated for another award, this time by The Nail Snail!! Wow, I’m in shock!

This time is was the Liebster award!

Here are the “rules”:
  1. You must link back to the blogger who nominated you. 
  2. Answer the 11 questions given to you by the blogger who nominated you. 
  3. Nominate 11 other bloggers with less than 200 followers.
  4. Go to the blogs you nominated and notify them of your nomination.
  5. Give your nominees 11 questions to answer

Here are my answers!
1. What is your favorite nail polish (sorry, I know it’s a super hard question)?
 Oh man, this is tough! Haha! Currently, I would have to say Endless Blue by Sinful Colors!
2. What other hobbies do you have, besides nail polish?
 Does Graphic Design count as a hobby? I designed most/all of the elements of my layout! I like art, listening to music, and tumblr. Sleeping too! (;
3. In your opinion, what is the best mani you’ve ever done?
 Man, this is hard too! Hmmm, I would probably have to go with my Roses & Rhinestones. The freehanded roses were a big step for me, my first time using a detail brush actually!
4. How did you come up with your blog name?
 Well, originally I wanted to be Hey, Polish! based off of the band Hey Monday but that blogspot was already taken. So I added the word darling because I just really like the word and that’s how Hey, Darling Polish! was created.
5. What is your favorite flower?
 Uhmm, carnations? I just really like any flower but those were my grandmother’s favorite so I’ll go with those!
6. What is the accomplishment you’re most proud of?
 Just being in college probably, I feel like I’ve really worked hard to get myself where I am today and it’s nice to know that I’m working towards something great. Neither of my parents finished college so it’s big for them that I’ve made it this far.
7. Who is your favorite composer?
 Uhmmm, John Williams! Only because he did the soundtrack for Jurassic Park! Hehehe
8. What’s your favorite board game?
 Othello!
9. What sports do you like to watch/what are your favorite teams?
 Haha uhmmm, I don’t watch sports….that whole going to art school thing? Yeah, we don’t do sports much. I did play golf for 4 years in high school though! 
10. What would be your idea of a dream vacation?
 Oh man! This is hard too! I would love to go to Australia, I’ve always been in love with Steve Irwin and I’ve been dreaming since I was a little kid of visiting his zoo! Or maybe to Alaska because I love cold weather! Ehhhhh! D: Can I do both in 1 trip? (:
11. Do you like country music? And if you do, do you agree that Blake Shelton has a bit of a monopoly over the country radio stations?

 Haha this is actually kind of funny. I respect peoples’ musics choices and all, you’re going to listen to what you want to listen to so it’s cool. But I actually hate country music, whoops. Please don’t be mad.(:

Phew, that was a lot!

Honestly, I don’t think I’m going to pick out 11 blogs for this only because I think a lot of people have already been nominated for this and I know repetition can get annoying after a while. A lot of the people that I would nominate have just recently been nominated by other people and done their posts, so they shouldn’t have to do another one. Also, truthfully and I’m not trying to sound pretentious or snobby, I don’t actually follow that many blogs so trying to find blogs with under a certain amount of followers is hard. I do check out all the blogs that I was nominated along with though! If this hurts someones’ feelings, I’m sorry. I love you all and you all deserve an award!

Okay, it’s 3am and I’m exhausted. Thank you for reading and thank you so much again to The Nail Snail! Check her blog out!!!

Hello everyone!

I’m back with this week’s “Weekly Recap!”

Links:

My 2nd week of blogging is complete! Woo!
This past week has been crazy with the start of school and trying to keep the blog up and going. To be completely honest, this semester isn’t looking too hopeful. I already have a ton of homework to do, plus work study work, and club stuff to worry about. BUT, I’m dedicated to this blog and will continue to try my hardest to keep it going! (I’m used to not sleeping, unfortunately. So, no big deal haha). 
I think this past week was kind of rough partly because my Monday and Friday posts weren’t written ahead of time. I wanted to wear those nails on those certain days so I painted them the night before, photographed, edited, and wrote the posts all at once. But I’m happy with everything that went up this week! I did a bunch of type inspired nails which I’m a total nerd for, so it’s cool. Also, THERE IS HOPE FOR MY FREE HAND SKILLS! A couple of months (maybe even weeks) ago, I would never would of dreamed of doing those ampersand nails! Haha! Yay for improvement!
Yay for ranting! But I have more news!!
This upcoming month, I have decided to start participating in the Tri Polish Challenge hosted by Crumpet’s Nail Tarts ! Yay! Fun things! Here’s the post that started this challenge along with the rules! 
Also, MORE NEWS! Woo!
I’ve also decided to participate in The Crumpet’s new 33 Day Challenge! This challenge will start on September 23rd, there will be posts up Monday, Wednesday, and Friday (my blogging schedule (; ), and will last for 11 weeks! Here’s the link to a post about it! 
Here’s the prompts for it!
I’m excited for this but also extremely nervous at the same time! I’m mostly just worried about time constraints, I know that I’ll be out of state for 2 of these days but I’m hoping to stay on top of it. 
Welp, that was a long post….SORRY! I hope you’ve enjoyed reading this and stay tuned for more nails this week! (:
And because I’m still on a Fall Out Boy kick:
Fall Out Boy – What A Catch, Donnie
Here’s some photos from the concert (click to make bigger). It ended up pouring during it but there’s something almost magical about screaming along to some of your favorite songs with hundreds of people in the rain. Or maybe I’m just weird haha






Fall Out Boy, Concert, FOBFall Out Boy, Concert, FOBFall Out Boy, Concert, FOB

The queen of ranting, yours truly
