A few weeks ago I had on rainbow nails in Zoya's polishes except my thumb in a polish I made. colors in this picture I have on my thumb my holographic top coat I made my self and calling Magical, pointer is Skylar, middle is Carly, ring is Meg and pinkie is Myrta.


I was showing my friend just what my top coat does so I put it on top of my Zoya nails for the second picture and in the sun they look like this

this is two of my polishes that I sold , Midnight Ocean is a blue polish with holographic glitters in it and Magical is the Holographic top coat that I make. My youngest son named Midnight Ocean, I made 7 of them and now have 2 left!!

Sunday I did my nails to sort of look like one of my troll beads I have or even an oil slick, I got the idea from an Inspired by Robin Moses blog/ face gook I follow. i used Orly Buried Alive for the base color and then used acrylic paints in Folk Art Metallic in Peridot, Blue Topaz, Periwinkle,and Aquamarine. I also used Perfect pearls pigments in Pewter< Blue Patina, and Heirloom Gold. I put my Magical holographic top coat on top of them to give them some sparkle in certain lighting because i was going out with friends

I am working on a few new polishes and also waiting on a few supplies to get to me, i hate waiting for things when I am inspired NOW to do things! I am also practicing a back to school nails for my niece so hopefully those turn out cute so I can post them!

I'm wearing Zoya Arizona on my fingers. It reminds me of a creamsicle. My toes are Zuza layered over Wednesday (sort of a dusty teal shimmer). Arizona is pretty but streaky. I had to do four coats but the color is bright and cheery.

Scrangie: Color Club Magnetic Force Magnetic Polish Collection Spring/Summer 2012 Swatches and Review

Obviously not my nails but I have on Color Club Magnetic Force polish in Sci-Fi. I cannot find my phone right now which is what I usually use to take pics. This is the only magnetic nail polish I could get my hands on. I just happened to find it one day in a basket of other nail polishes on an end cap so it was the only color option. I would have preferred a different color but after wearing it, it has grown on me. The only thing I don't like is it that the magnet is flat and most of my nails are fairly curved (more than the pic I posted) so the pattern doesn't really show up on the sides of most of my nails so it just looks okay. Interesting but nothing fabulous.

Just quoting to say I LOVE THIS POST AND THE COLLECTION!

I don't have Facebook and couldn't see the polishes, but this post is the WIN.

My sister saw David Cross two days ago in San Francisco. Ahhh... I wish I could write his title of being an analyst and a therapist....

^^ Nothing to do with nail polish, but RCC you just passed 16,000 posts! And the word 'butthurt' is really really funny.

Hey! I think that depends on the person, but mine are acrylics. The nail technician just used a nail clipper (like how they usually do to shorten the applied nails) and clipped them into a point. So he clipped both sides of my nails to make an angle. Then he filed them into a smooth point. The tips are not sharp BTW, they are slightly rounded so that I don't hurt myself.

Dagger nails aren't for everyone, but I'm in LOVE! Men and women have been complimenting me. Strangely enough, men have been using them as a conversation piece.

So, if you get these nails expect ppl to comment on them. Dudes think they're awesome. IDK, I LOVE them!

Can't post it, though. It may be up thread in the May or June timeframe.

It'd be fun to try when my nails grow long again. I just cut them down a few days ago as they got to that irritating (to me) length.

RCC, after I posted that I thought that *maybe* someone had done it already, but with my craptastic memory I also thought I could be inventing that thought. Thanks for bumping that so I could see again!

I thought it was neat because I was given the same link as inspiration. The pinking shears are a good idea for someone who doesn't want to do it freehand.
