Hello lovelies!
It’s Monday, boo! This post is coming a little earlier than I normally post but today marks the beginning of The Crumpet’s 33 Day Challenge, and I wanted to be around a computer when this was supposed to go up. Everybody will be posting their manicures Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays for the next 11 weeks! I know a lot of talented people are participating in this and honestly, it makes me nervous haha. 
But anyways, on the to nails!

Nails, Nail Art, Dotticure, Dots, Polka Dots, ELF Metal Madness, Hey Darling Polish
The first prompt for today is dots! It’s a nice simple opening theme for the challenge, I think.

Here’s what I used:

I kind of took this challenge also as an excuse to use some of my untried nail polishes and to use ones that I normally pass over. So, this was my first time using ELF’s Metal Madness, which I got in a set of 3 polishes for $3, score! It’s a really pretty color and surprisingly I like the metallically(?) look to it even though I prefer cremes. My only issue is that it can be a little “brushstrokey” if you aren’t careful!

I wish I could have picked up the sparkle from Sally Hansen’s Disco Ball with my camera a little better, but when I did these nails, I was still having issues with my light box and the color balancing. These nails remind me of Halloween for some reason haha. I’m only a little over a month early, hehe (:

I did enjoy wearing these nails and I think it was a nice, easy start to a long challenge! Can’t wait to see what everyone else did (:
What do you think of these nails? Do you like “dotticures”? Let me know!

Hello lovelies!
Here’s this week’s recap!
I posted 5 nail posts this week, wow. Haha. 
I’ve decided that I’m definitely going to try and stick to 5 nail posts a week! Yay, more nails for you guys! (: It’s been pushing me to try new nail techniques and improving with nail art. Also, it’s definitely helping me with my time management which is something that I really need to work on. I’m the person who waits till the last minute for almost everything, so yeah, not good haha. Take this weekend for example, I have tons of homework but decided not to do any work and relax the whole time. I watched a lot of Paranormal State and colored my hair purple (; (I’ll probably end up pulling an all nighted tonight or tomorrow D: )
Anyways, this is a nail blog….whoops. 3 out of 5 posts had pink in them and I don’t even like the color pink, weird. This week I posted my first 2 manicures of the Tri-Polish Challenge, my first nail art challenge! This upcoming is actually going to be all challenge posts, weird. But the 33 Day Challenge starts tomorrow! Woo!
There’s still time to join! Here are the prompts! I’m excited!
I wrote a lot again….sorry.

Check back tomorrow for my first post of the 33 Day Challenge! Have a great day!

Hello lovelies!
And I’m back, again. Do we like this idea of nail posts Monday-Friday? Or is it overkill? Thoughts? Both of my roommates are going home this weekend, so I’ve decided to dedicate my Saturday to a Paranormal State marathon and a nail art day! I’m so excited (: Anyways, I’m back again with another indie nail post!
Here’s the nails!

Ugh, so great! I don’t even care that it’s pink glitter, I’ve fallen in love with this polish too!

More after the jump:

This polish is Love Angeline’s Wham! And man, does it pack a punch! This is once again 1 coat over a purple gradient. I think the gradient actually works in this manicure because it doesn’t hide the glitters and lets them shine!
Here’s what I used:
Wham! was another polish that was being retired and that I picked up for $5, unfortunately I don’t see this one up on the site anymore. Sorry! But it’s filled with medium, matte, hot pink hex glitters, green squares, and small black hexes! My only gripe with this polish is that I wish they were less pink glitters and more black ones. But we all know I don’t like pink but I will totally make an exception for this polish!

I have really liked these past two indie polishes that I’ve posted this week. And I’m definitely a fan of Love, Angeline‘s polishes. She is definitely someone that I would check out!
What do you think about this polish? Do you like matte glitters? Thoughts on square glitters?

Hello!
Have you guys gotten sick of me yet? Haha! I’m back today with my 2nd manicure for this month’s Tri-Polish Challenge! This month’s colors are lilac, pink, and blue! Here’s a link to The Crumpet’s original post that explains the rules: here.
On to the nails!

Slime drips or ice cream drips or whatever kind of drips you want them to be! (:

More after the jump:

I’m kind of iffy about these nails. I love the look of drip nails but I still need to work on my execution of them. I was a little sloppy here but I actually really love the way the pink polish looks. Is that considered a jelly? I think it took 2 thicker coats to be opaque but it looks squishy! And I like “squishies”! (I want to watch Finding Nemo now!)
Here’s my 3 polishes:
The directions for these are pretty easy, even though mine turned out wonky. I just painted my base coat, then used a dotting tool to make dots, and then painted like a french tip and connected the dots to it. You kind of have to “stylize” the connection to make it look drippy, but these are WAY better than my first attempt (we won’t relive those days). 
Yay, half way through my first challenge. Small victory! (:
What do you think of these nails? Do you like drip manicures? Ice cream or slime?

Hello lovelies!
I’m back again! This whole blogging Sunday-Friday thing for challenges is going to take a little getting used to. But I hope you all enjoy it! Hopefully I can keep up with this because I’ve been thinking of upping my blogging to Sunday-Friday. But it seems intimidating haha! We’ll see! I actually had the time last night to sit down and paint a few different manicures (it was a much needed break from schoolwork!) (:
Anyways, on to the nails!!

This is the first indie ever featured on the blog! Love, Angeline’s She Loves Me! And it’s a beauty isn’t it?!

More after the jump:

This isn’t my first indie that I’ve ever bought, just the first one I’ve put on the blog. This polish is filled with medium sized, gold hex glitters and tiny light blue, hex glitters! I love it so much!
Here’s what I used for this manicure:
I wanted to do some sort of nail art like manicure with it instead of just a normal swatch for the first time I wore it, I will have normal swatches up on the blog eventually. I have big plans for the blog once the 33 Day Challenge is over! (I think way too far ahead haha). And one of them is a proper daylight light bulb….meh.
I just feel like the gradient doesn’t let the polish shine to its true potential, because it truly is beautiful. But secret time, this is only 1 coat of  She Loves Me. ONE COAT! Ugh, I love this polish. I feel like I’m pulling a Mishka (Accio Lacquer) and I’m fangirling, but she’s way better at it than me! Haha
Now, can you believe that this polish is actually being retired?! WHAT! I went ahead and decided to try Love, Angeline‘s polishes because she retired some polishes and I picked this up for $5! Can you believe it?! This is probably one of my favorite indies that I own, for 5 dollars! And I checked, there are still some for sale!! (I’ll link at the bottom). 
So, what do you think of this polish? Would you like to see more indies on the blog?

Until next time!
