Before I head off to our Wine On The Lake event this evening, I thought I'd post a few more NOTDs for you to enjoy. Fun fact, I got good and sick during that week, and left my nails the same color for way way longer than I usually do. Which turned it into a bit of a challenge to see just how long I could leave them. So I am including pictures of that too. Let's get right to it.
To start, I did some more marbling.
It's just so much fun to practice, whether or not it turns out fabulously.
I like the way these two colors look together.
Not the best marbling job though.
But I do find it interesting because it has neat patterns anyway.
I might try this combo again sometime.
You can see where I marbled over again, which kinda makes it neater to me.
Of course, I had to keep going on the marble thing, because when I get obsessed, I get OBSESSED. Haha.
This one I did over a white base.
I think this marble turned out really nice.
And I really like the way the colors look.
I'm hoping I can get better at marbling, but I also want to break out the Konad again.
Oh, and I want to play with my dotting tools some more!
I bought some liquid latex, which is what I use to keep from getting polish all over my fingers now.
I also want to learn how to marble by dragging.
After those bright ones, I thought I'd go with something vampy.
I like the name more than I probably should. Hee.
This is three coats.
Please don't mind my funky nail shape, they just grow a bit odd.
This looks black in most lights.
It's still pretty.
Three days later, when I was able to get out of bed again, this is what it looked like.
I added the glitter accent, and you can see a bit of tip wear.
Still, it's in pretty good shape.
If I were the type to leave my polish on for longer periods all the time, I'd be happy with this.
I used Orly Bonder, and Seche Vite. Here it is after another few days.
A little more tip wear, but still looking pretty fair.
The last day, here it is.
Yep, it finally chipped.
After that I thought a nice bright red would look great.
This is Most Wanted Red.
It is a great red, and that's just two coats.
It's shiny all on it's own, but I still use top coat.
It cleans up nice too. I love that.
This didn't stain my nails.
I think this color would look good on most anybody.
So then, I added Sephora OPI Only Gold For Me.
I love the way this looks.
All the different sized glitters look pretty impressive to me.
I see getting some good use out of that one.
Don't forget to click and embiggen the pictures so you can see details even better.
I do love the bling.
After all those bright and dark colors, I thought I'd give a neutral color a shot.
So hey, OPI Cosmo-Not Tonight Honey!
'Neutrals' are totally NOT my style at all.
I will admit though, this one isn't bad.
The shimmer in it gives it a nice shine.
So I like it more than I thought I would.
It almost matches my skin. If my skin had shimmer.
Okay, I'm off to get ready for our wine tasting, and a relaxing night in a hotel. It's gonna be a blast!
