Nail Foils – My video of trying it for the first time!

It was so much easier than I thought, I love this stuff so much!

Again, this was the swatch for this:

My Valentine's Nails! Cherry O's nail foils!

Okay this was my first time using nail foils so I made a video! I didn’t get to edit/upload yet but I wanted to at least show the swatches for now.

Aren’t they neato? I think I love nail foils!

I started with China Glaze – Long Kiss, because it was a similar red to put underneath. (I hear you do that in case there are “bald spots”.)

It looked so similar to Heart of Africa to me, but when I looked really super closely, Long Kiss was more of a warm-toned shade and Heart of Africa was more of a wine-toned shade. Very similar though, see?

I even love the adhesive that comes with nail foils! When you layer it on, it looks so UV, like purple and blue and oil-slick-ish.

I got the foil and adhesive from dollarnailart.com. (Careful, its addicting!)

Have a Happy Valentine’s Day! I can’t wait to eat some chocolate cake. 🙂

Happy Valentine's Day! (And Elle's Spell over Black)

I am actually wearing China Glaze – Long Kiss right now because after my shower I want to do a nail foil! I got the red one with the O’s, and its my first time trying foils. All of the tutorials said that it doesn’t last long so I will have to do it on my lunch break or after work.

For now, here’s a swatch I took a week or so ago of Elle’s Spell over black. My regular well-lit swatch didn’t really show how pretty the red firey flakies are, so I had to go with a shadier swatch.

I never did get the Nfu Oh version of this, I had the blacker based one and didn’t like it as much, this redder-based mix is so awesome!

I also got Max Factor – Fantasy Fire! The Unicorn Pee dupe! My amazingly fun, generous, and awesome friend Jill in Europe just grabbed one for me while she was getting me a few of the essence Vampire Love polishes and surprised me with it! I can NOT wait to swatch that one. I might have to make a video like I’ve been wanting to do lately…

Oh, I said I’d post the new OPI and Zoya purples comparison though, didn’t I? Okay, that will come next. Unless I post my V Day foils first, then it’ll be right after that. 😉

My happiest Valentine's Day!

I gave myself this ridiculously bright pink V Day konad and took this picture:

I used China Glaze Sneakerhead, added white konad hearts, and then covered it with this stuff, which is pretty clear with bright pink sparkly shimmer…

Then last night after dinner, my boyfriend and I went to walk at the beach and now I’m engaged!!!

I have to take pictures with my actual engagement ring soon, but right now we are having issues and it is at the jeweler’s so I only have a picture with my wedding band now! Its floral and has like 3 leaves, each with a little diamond, and then a dot repeated, I love it so much.

I know I’m not supposed to wear the wedding band until the wedding, but I’m so excited that I have to wear something on that finger until I get my engagement one back! haha!
