Hey babes!

I'm not really one for traditional Valentine's Day colours or symbolism, so I thought I'd create a mani more true to my style using greige and pink! It was also a good opportunity to try my new Cosette Nail Shop stamper.

Nail Art Fail: Broken Glass Nails

Leave a Comment
Press Sample
Hey babes!

By now, most of you are probably aware of the 'broken glass' nail trend, popularised by Korean nail artist Eun Kyung Park (see her work on Instagram here). I recently received some pre-cut, cellophane shards from Lady Queen Beauty to review, and I thought I would try my hand using them to create a broken glass mani of my own. I used the color #60 over OPI Mod About You. However, I found this technique really difficult to master, and I am fairly sure it has to do with the quality of the cellophane and the fact that I am not using gel polish. The cellophane was roughly chopped and there were pieces of straight up regular plastic inside the small jar.

You can tell by the length of my nails that I actually did these some time ago, and was hesitant to upload them because they were such a disappointment. However, it's really important to me as a blogger that good and bad reviews appear on my blog - if everything is amazing, what's the point in reviewing?

I attempted to do this in two ways - the first, I would apply the cellophane to nail polish that was still slightly wet and sticky on my nail. This didn't work for multiple reasons; firstly, the polish was too wet for me to press down firmly enough for the cellophane to stick. Due to being chopped and crammed into a small container, the pieces often were bent and stuck out at odd angles. This made it quite difficult to stick down to a flat surface. Secondly, the pieces of cellophane tended to lift up the wet polish and leave bare patches of nail. So I attempted my next technique - applying the cellophane to fully dry nails, using topcoat as 'glue' to hold it down. This worked quite well until it came time to top coat. I always top coat nail art to achieve a smooth, glassy finish but for some reason, the more I topcoated, the more the cellophane lifted and curled.

Swatch & Review: Sinful Colors Nirvana

Leave a Comment
Hey babes,

I've been in love with any lipstick/nail polish in taupe/brown lately, so naturally this little beauty caught my attention at Kmart the other day. Nirvana is described as a "smooth milk chocolate". I did find it looked more dusty & taupey in some lights, but that doesn't make it any less gorgeous.
