So, if anyone wants to give Sara crap for not doing this for a week or two….come after me. It’s all my fault. This is actually 3 posts in one, but I was working on getting my book formatted and yada yada, excuse, excuse. So, please don’t judge her for my slacker ways. Oh, and if you like the way the bracelets look, you’re more than welcome to contact us about custom made ones.
Last week’s game against the rams I wore this design, so nice, did it twice.
Applied two coats of L.A. Girl Magnetic nail polish in a dark stormy blue. Layered over it a highly saturated fine glittery cobalt blue polish that shifts to deep purples(L.A.Girl Rock Star nail lacquer).Used three coats to get that sparkle. Selecting Pure Ice’s Lucky Charming, I drew a thin line horizontally along each nail flattening the brush first before using it. Finished with a silver accent using L.A. Colors color craze’s Live .
New Year’s nail art. I liked the seahawks vs rams design so much I amped it up for the holiday.
The white is the product of careful layering. I painted what I wanted white with silver first, layering Pure Ice’s Glow in the dark over it. Effectively transforming L.A. Colors’ Live into a shimmery winter white. Did this for the base, stripes and accent dots. As an added bonus, my work paid off and I was rewarded with glowing nails in a fun distinctive pattern. Mostly came up with this winter shimmer white because I don’t like plain white, it’s boring and reminds me of White Out correction fluid. I’ve yet to find a shimmery white with a high fine glitter content that is in my budget.
On thumbs and pinkies : base is three coats of Sinful Colors Professional in Starry Night. I picked out the big pieces of glitter for a polished look. Drew a thin line horizontally across nail with L.A. Colors color craze’s Live, carefully layered Pure Ice’s Glow in the dark over it, finished with a red accent dot in Sinful Colors Professional’s Sugar sugar.
For ring and index fingers: Base is two coats of Sinful Colors Professional’s Sugar sugar. A thin stripe of Starry Night, accented with a dot of winter white.
Middle fingers: Two coats of L.A. Colors color craze’s Live. Three coats of Pure Ice’s Glow in the dark, being careful to wait til dry between coats of glow. Horizontal red stripe in Sinful Colors Professional’s Sugar sugar. Topped with a black accent dot using Sinful Colors Professional’s Starry Night.
Bracelets worn with New Year’s nails.
Black, some rainbow patina, and stone. Red segments, accents and leaves. Frosted bands and leaves too
New Year’s makeup. Eyes: High Intensity Pigments metallic shadow duo in Platinum. This pair is a very metallic silver paired with a dark inky black that has shimmery flecks. Used the silver, making and filling the shape shown, also applied it under bottom eyelashes. Lined top and bottom eyelashes with Jordana Glitter Rocks retractable eye liner pencil in Glam Rock Green. Used generous swipes of Hard Candy 1,000 Lashes fiberized lash weave mascara in Green on upper and lower eyelashes, also used it to subtly color my eyebrows. Lips : Revlon Just Bitten Lipstain in Gothic.
For these game day nails (Seahawks Vs. Cardinals) I started with two layers of L. A. Colors color craze’s Wired. I then used Live (silver) being careful to leave a blue border. Keeping a silver border, I applied another layer of Wired inside the silver, making certain to stay in the middle. Finished it off by adding Pure Ice’s Lucky Charming (sparkly green) at cuticles.
These are the bracelets I paired with it.
