Fishtail Braided nails!

Hello! Sorry that I have been MIA for the past few weeks I have had a lot going on! But I am here to make it up with a new braided nail trend!
This design I saw on Cutepolish's YouTube channel and it looked hard, but turned out to be an extremely simple design! You simply make overlapping alternating diagonal lines and you are left with a trendy very complicated looking design! This design looks best with a cream, shimmer and foil, that way there is more contrast. I used Rimmel Violet Metal, LA Colors foil no name and Wet n Wild I need a refresh-mint.

Finger Paints Magnetic Hipnotic

Hello all! Today is a polish I found on clearance at Sally's, it was $1.35(!) so I had to snatch it up! This is a fuschia/berry base with a glowing cool-toned pink as the design. I am a sucker for all colors like this, so this magnetic effect just adds onto the lem-all-berry-shades.
The magnet was easy to use, with a cuticle curve to rest on. I noticed that the magnet effect starts immediately, which is a plus. I had a few mishaps with the magnet touching my polish... the way I fix it (if it didn't completely butcher it) is finish the magnet, let it dry *completely* then touch up the spot and magnetize! Voila, perfect fix. I will be announcing the giveaway winner soon, and you may notice that I started watermarking and cropping my pictures, you guys deserved better!

Matching Mani and Pedi

Hello all!! Today I have a leopard print matching mani and pedi! This was done free hand because at the moment I didn't have the patience to do konad *iz lazy* so I used a dotting tool and toothpick!
For the manicure I used China Glaze It's My Turn from the kaleidoscope collection, a wonderful holographic tan. On the accent fingers, I used Wet n Wild Tropicalia from the new megalast line, an awesome line in my opinion, and the leopard spots were black and China Glaze, It's my Turn.
On my toes I used Revlon Tulip, and Zoya Mitzi, from the Mod Mattes Collection. Same method, paint base color, dot in contrasting color, surround partially with black, and voila, instant rawr. I love this combination, and can't wait to do it with other colors!! All photos are color accurate, except Tropicalia is a bit more orange in real life.
