Pretty & Polished Dusty Cremes Water Marble

pretty-polished-dusty-cremes-water-marble

A couple of months ago, when Pretty & Polished released the Dsuty Cremes for fall, someone asked in the fan group if they watermarbled. So I tested them out and yes, they do indeed. Since that was a while ago, I recreated it in one finger and a tiny container to show you guys how they spread. Enjoy!

Video Tutorial

For the original water marble I let it dry and then applied as decals. In the tutorial, the colors didn't come out as crisp, mostly due to the small container and how quickly I was trying to get it done, less drops of color means I have to work faster. The used an empty cuticle balm container to water marble in.

Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker

Pretty-and-Polished-Jawbreaker-Swatch

This isn't technically untried so I didn't title it as such, but think of it as the next one in that series. Jawbreaker from Pretty & Polished was one of my 1st indie purchases. I did wear it at the beginning of the year and attempted to stamp over it. It was not good, mainly because I barely knew how to stamp then. Anyway, check below for a review.

Neon Holo Roses Nail Art Tutorial

Neon-Holo-Roses-M-Polish-UberChic-Shinespark

I belong to an amazing group of women that come together to talk about their love of nail polish and nail art. Our founding member recently and unexpectedly passed so we got together to do nails in her honor. The themes where Floral or Pigs since those are things she loved. For my manicure, I decided to use some products that were made by two ladies in the group, Shinespark Polish and M Polish, stamped with roses from UberChic 1-02. There's a video tutorial and macro shot below.

Orange and Black Stamping Tutorial


I have what I consider a nail fail for you guys today. I wanted to create a orange and black damask look but I didn't have any damask stamping plates so this is as close as it got. I've since remedied the situation and got some plates. I did these about a month ago but like usual, I'm posting it now. Because I must be some sort of masochist I actually went and recreated these on one nail last weekend so I could bring you a tutorial. Enjoy!
