Good afternoon (?) lovelies! That sounds a little weird, but we’re going to run with it haha. I’m back with my final look for last month’s The Digit-al Dozen color contrast theme! I know I keep rambling on about catching up with challenges and you guys probably don’t care. But, it’s something that bothers me. I feel like I can’t get excited about painting and sharing new looks until the old ones are out of the vault. My goal is to get caught up on everything by the end of the week, and it looks like I’m on track to do it! Anyways, let’s get onto the polish!

Here is what I used:

This time around I wanted to showcase the contrast between the colors coral and blue! It’s not a “true” contrast, but Tulip was calling my name and was demanding to be used immediately. And now I’m totally imagining what would happen if nail polish could talk. Like think what would happen if all of your untrieds could just cry for you to use them? Or your favorite polish yelling at you that it’s tired? Also, this post keeps getting really weird so we’re going to move on…

nails, nail art, nail polish, contrast, abstract, polish those nails

  1. Start by applying three coats of Tulip.
  2. Sponge on a layer of Twilight Twinkles over top.
  3. Once that has dried down a bit, dip a fan brush into some dark blue acrylic paint and randomly dab it on your nails.
  4. Repeat with the lighter blue.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with a layer of Glossy Glam.

And there we have it. This is the simplest look that I did for this theme, but it’s by far my favorite! I love how the abstract, blue splotches look against the gold flakies from Twilight Twinkles. Tulip is a gorgeous polish as well, so this look is full of wins. But, I want to know what you think! Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts.

Good evening lovelies! It is super late, whoops! But anyone remember those swatches of Parallax Polish’s Stat-ick-tics Set that I posted almost a month ago? Yeah, it’s been a month. I totally promised you guys nail art, and then never got the post up (sorry Erin!) But guess what I have for you guys now! Parallax Polish nail art! I’m going to keep this post on the shorter side since it’s late and I know you guys are here mainly just to look at the pictures. So, let’s get to it!

pattern, alpha, red, nails, nail polish, nail art, indie polish, parallax polish, polish those nails, stat-ick-tics set

First up in this nail art spam is the look featuring Alpha! I don’t remember having much of a game plan when doing the nail art for this polish, but the inspiration came from one of the patterns from this set by PixelBuddha. I’m loving the pops of blue against the black and white art!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Alpha.
  2. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.
  3. Then using a detail brush and acrylic paint add on the pattern.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.

Next up is Beta! I guess I was in the mood for black and white nail art when I painted all of these? The glowy-ness of this polish really shines against the black stripes.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Beta.
  2. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.
  3. Then using a striping brush and black acrylic paint add on the stripes.
  4. Go back in with a dotting tool and white paint for the polka dots.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.

Now, onto Error In Your R! Usually when I see green and gold together, I immediately think of Christmas but I am loving this design. The way that the polka dots melt into the distressed border turned out so cool to me. I can’t wait to recreate this design with other colors.

  1. Start by applying two coats of Error In Your R.
  2. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.
  3. Then using the dry brush technique and OPI’s Love.Angel.Music.Baby., add on the gold border.
  4. Once that’s dry, go back in with a dotting tool to add the polka dots.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.

Next is Power! You guys knew that I wouldn’t make it through this post without a floral look. I loved the contrast between the flowers and the dark base in this print by Bouffants & Broken Hearts. So, it made sense to try it over Power. Plus, I can totally call this look Flower Power now!

  2. Apply a layer of Glossy Glam.

  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with another layer of Glossy Glam.

Last up is the polish, Do I Have To? This was my favorite from the set, so I just couldn’t bear covering up too much of that glitter. These patterns from Catherine Wilson were the perfect inspiration!

Oh hi…again…for the third time tonight. I promise you guys that this is the last post for the night. I’m just so close to being on my normal blogging schedule again, and only have a few more back posts to share. Hopefully after this week, I’ll be back on track with all of my challenges. In the meantime though, thanks for sticking around through all of these posts! Three different nail art looks a day can’t possibly be the worst thing to ever happen, right? Anyways, nails. Two weeks ago, everyone participating in the Nail Polish Society‘s ABC Challenge tackled the letter “X” inspired nails. So, let me share my x-ray inspired nail art with you all!

Here is what I used:

silver-gold-glitter-black-xray-geometric-pattern-nail-art-bottle-shot

This may have been the toughest letter to come up with an idea for. So difficult that I actually almost skipped it, mainly because I forgot that the letter “X” even exists. Yes, I am an adult. Yes, I know my ABCs. But seriously, I completely blanked on this letter and almost missed it. Luckily, I caught it just in time and came up with these x-ray inspired nails! The geometric pattern was inspired by this fabric designed by Kelly Wearstler.

nails, nail art, nail polish, indie polish, glitter, polish those nails, x-ray

  1. Start by applying three (?) coats of Breath Of Zephyros.
  2. Once that’s dry, paint on some random dripping cloud shapes with black acrylic paint and a detail brush.
  3. Layer over that black paint with Queen Of The Night (previously reviewed here.)
  4. Then go back in with teal and white acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

This nail art definitely doesn’t look like a real x-ray, but I’m really happy with how these turned out. Again, Femme Fatale is killing me with the stunning polishes and I love how this one contrasts against Queen Of The Night. The teal design adds a nice pop of color as well. Make sure to let me know what you think down below in the comments!

Oh, hello, again! So, Digit-al Dozen week is coming up next week, but I still haven’t finished sharing my looks from November’s theme. It’s pretty pointless to post them now, but I had the looks all painted and thought that I should share them you guys anyways. But, moving on. Last’s month prompt was color contrast nails so here is my fourth look!

Here is what I used:

green-shimmer-neon-pink-squiggles-contrast-nail-art-bottle-shot

Ivanka is a polish that has been sitting in my helmer neglected for what feels like forever, but it’s so gorgeous! Layering Corpus Callosum over top of it made it look like it was really glowing too. Anyways, the inspiration for this design came from this sweater that is linking to TF Knitwear.

nails, nail art, nail polish, contrast, squiggles, polish those nails

  1. Start by applying two coats of Honor (which stains, so be careful!)
  2. Add a layer of Ivanka over that.
  3. Once that’s dry, mix a little bit Corpus Callosum (previously reviewed here) with some acetone and dab it on with a fluffy brush.
  4. Then using white acrylic paint a detail brush, add on the base of the squiggles.
  5. Go back over them using Poppy (previously reviewed here) and a detail brush.
  6. Clean up.
  7. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

This might actually be one of my favorite looks from the entire week. I wasn’t a fan of these nails when I painted them, because they reminded me too much of watermelon (weird, I know.) But looking at them now, I love these! The contrast between the neon pink and the dark, shimmery green is really speaking to me haha.

Hello lovelies! Today’s post (possibly posts) are going up so late. Ugh haha. Work has all of a sudden gotten kind of crazy again, and I’m exhausted. But, I wanted to pop on here quickly to share some nail art with you all! I’m still trying to get myself into the holiday nail art *mood* but I think I’m starting to get there with this look. Christmas lights have always been one of my favorite festive designs to paint and this year’s version might be the best yet! So, let’s get to the polish!

Here is what I used:
sparkly-shimmer-christmas-lights-pattern-nail-art-bottle-shot

Can we please take a minute to admire that Femme Fatale polish? And when I say a minute, I mean like an hour. This look is what I wore to work today, and I probably wasted a good hour staring at my nails. The shimmer is so intense that the color shifts with the slightest move of your finger. Polishes like this never used to catch my eye, but now I’m beating myself up over not buying every single one like this! Ugh.

nails, nail art, nail polish, christmas lights, indie polish, femme fatale, polish those nails

  1. Start by applying three coats of Mirror, Mirror, On The Wall.
  2. Then using acrylic paint and a detail brush, add on the black lines.
  3. After use various colored paints and a dotting tool for the lights.
  4. Go back in with the black paint and detail brush to attach the lights to the strings.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

I’m not even sure what else to write at this point. That Femme Fatale is just way too distracting and it doesn’t help that I lost my train of thought…whoops. I do know that I want to hear your opinions on this look! Also, if you own any polishes from Femme Fatale, what is your favorite?
