NCLA awesome wrap nails. I’ve avoided wrap nails for a long time because reviews were terrible and I hate files, but the reviews on these were solid and I LOVE these patterns. Definitely on my want list.
Havent been on tumblr since the last time I posted (probably weeks now). Probably wont be on it/checking at all for another several week. But yay holiday nails! My mom bought me some fun gift sets, so I tried em all out basically lol.
Thumb: Butter London Scuppered
Pointer: Deborah Lippmann Run, Run, Rudolph (I like this one A LOT. It has cool flakes in it that you can’t really see in this picture.. goes on really nice, only need one coat!)
Middle: Base was a matte green called Veruschka, top coat was Butter London Jack the Lad (I really like this BL a lot as well)
Ring: Deborah Lippmann Rockin’ Around the Christmas Tree (its a semi sheer black with green and red glitter)
Pinky: Deborah Lippmann Let It Snow!
basecoat, 1 coat sally hansen instadry whirlwind white, 1 coat deborah lippmann lara’s theme. Candy corn also sally hansen instrdry lightening. Spider web also 1 coat sally hansen xtreme wear black out, 1 coat butter london the black knight.
Tried a pink to red ombre type thing today. Problem is I own almost no pinks, so not as nice of a gradient as I would’ve liked, but still looks decent. Inspiration: snow white and USC.
Did my nails green and gold! Tried to do various gradient/ombre type things with the green… naht bad. I especially like my ring finger. LET’S GO OAKLAND clap clap clapclapclap
STYLISH! San Francisco Giants pitcher Brian Wilson watches batting practice prior to Game 3 of the National League division baseball series between the Giants and the Reds in Cincinnati. Not that it’s our business, but… did Wilson do his nails himself? Did he get a manicure? Did he lose a bet? So many questions. (Photo: David Kohl/AP)
Bethany got me ‘The Black Knight’ Butter London for my birthday. Two coats and it looks great! On my left ring finger I did stripes, my right ring finger is dots. Made those with one coat of Sally Hansen Insta Dry ‘Teal-y Fast’, then one coat of Butter London ‘Henley Regatta’.
Before Bethany I only had the one teal glitter Butter London. Now my Butter London isn’t lonely anymore =]
You know the drill, go read more about this mani on my blog! I list all the info and colors and crap over there, so read it if you’re curious about anything. Also read it if you love me. : )
