Bling-tastic Tuesday…or Wednesday Vol. 6

Right…so it’s now officially been well over a year since I’ve written, and I won’t bore you with the details of the calamity of my professional situation (I’ve implemented some coping mechanisms), but I figured the best way to return was to do what all normal, dysfunctional families do: carry on and pretend like nothing ever happened! 🙂

In celebration of that delusional grasp at normalcy, I give you my most recent manicure (don’t think it’s the first one I’ve done since spring 2011 despite that several month long stretch where I ignored my cuticles and I chewed my nails instead of filing them…but that’s perhaps a post for another day).

Below you will find a combination I thought would be relatively pretty in my usual Sunday evening drunken haze (oh, right so by coping mechanism, I really meant I’ve increased my alcohol consumption). For your viewing enjoyment, I did a mani of Nfu Oh 40 over 3 coats of Rescue Beauty Lounge Bikini Bottom.

Pretty, no?

Bling-tastic Tuesday…or Wednesday Vol. 3

Let’s get reeeaaddyyy for the Tuesday (or Wednesday) spectacular bling-tacular!!!!!

Riiiighhhhttt, so, I got home from work late last nite (if left to my own devices, I become a work-ahloic, so this really isn’t much of a surprise on a daily basis), so instead of the nail polish application tutorial I had originally planned for today, you guys can get blingy with it. 😉

Again, b/c I feel guilty for not delivering as promised, I’m posting photos for two different manicures.

First up I have a nice metallic foil (I’ll admit it, I really like foils!) from Orly called Luxe. This was part of their Foil FX collection that came out earlier this year. It’s still available along w/ a rose colored foil called Rage and a silver foil called Shine from Head2Toe Beauty for $3.75/bottle. I picked this up at Ulta earlier this summer on a whim b/c I thought to myself I didn’t have anything like a gold foil and this fit the bill perfectly!

This applied nicely and I didn’t have too much trouble w/ visible brush strokes. This actually made me think of Minx Nails and made me think I could probably do a neat manicure using my Konad stamping tools. Yet another idea for a post. 🙂

The next shiny I have for you should be pretty familiar. This was Nfu Oh #45 from yesterday over Zoya America. I thought the red flakies might pop more over a colored base, but I dunno…I kinda like it applied without a colored base.
