MMC - Water Marble

Wednesday, yay! Only a few more days until the weekend! These last few weeks at work have been killing me but I am so grateful that I have a job, so no complaining right?

This weeks Mish Mash challenge was trying a technique that you've never tried before. Since I already had a base on from Essie For The Twill of It, I decided to try out the water marble technique. Holy Moses, this was a total pain! But I think it came out OK for my first shot.

I realized after I was done that this kind of nail art does not require perfection. Even though some bloggers are stellar at this kind of thing, I think its perfectly OK that each nail has its own thing going on. It was fun to wear but will for sure take some trial and error before I can be comfortable with this one. I ended up using Sinful Colors Black on Black, SH Xtremewear White On, Zoya Aurora and then topped it off with OTD Northern Lights top coat. Not too shabby right?

Before you leave dont forget to check out the other awesome ladies below and have a great week!

TIOT - Essie For TheTwill of It

Howdy howdy! I'm back for Try it On Tuesday with some awesomeness of a nail polish . I got a wonderful surprise gift from the lovely Natalie at Over The Top Coat (thank you :D) and was so excited that I tried it on the night it arrived in the mail.

Today I've got Essie For The Twill of It from the Fall 2013 Collection.

For The Twill of It is a stunning purpleish/grey duochrome with hints of green and blue. I fell in love when I saw the bottle and was hoping it would turn out just as beautiful on my nails and it did not disappoint! The color shift in the sunlight was so cool that I cant wait to get my hands on some more duochrome polish. This one lasted a few days too before it started to chip which is always a good thing. All around, I couldn't be happier with this pretty!

I shall be back tomorrow with MMC post featuring a nail art technique I've never tried before, so check back for that!

MMC - Metallic Diamond Geezer

Friday, I didn't think you'd ever get here! Happy weekend ladies! Ive been MIA for a little bit due to this little thing called my day job. Gotta make that paper to spend that paper on polish right?! :)

With my super busy schedule I had to go with something easy for this weeks Metallic theme for the Mish Mash challenge. I choose butter London Diamond Geezer, a stunning platinum silver metallic polish.

This is one I had yet to try and I'm glad I did! It was opaque in 2 coats and I think it would make a great base for some cool nail art.

Well, I am out for the evening, have yourself an awesome weekend and check out the other challengers below!

TIOT - Sally Hansen Sugar Coat

Hey ladies! For this weeks try it on Tuesday I decided to go with Sally Hansen Sugar Coat in Sour Apple.

This is my first time playing around with textured polish and I think its pretty cool. The textured feel is super weird, it reminded me the popcorn ceiling that some houses had when I was a kid. I love the color of this one though, you cant go wrong with mint green! I still need to try out some Zoya PixieDust and I'm way over due on a visit to Ulta so its bound to happen soon.

I'll be back tomorrow with this weeks Mish Mash challenge so keep an eye out for that post!
