My natural nails with a strengthening coat.

Brewfest nails! Bubbly gold glitter with foamy white head spilling over the tips.

(Wet n Wild - The Gold and the Beautiful & OPI - Alpine Snow)

The aforementioned gradient to goth up DVD for me:

  • Sally Hansen HD - DVD
  • Wet n Wild - Saved by the Blue
  • Wet n Wild - Buffy the Violet Slayer
  • Wet n Wild - Black Creme

My first gradient attempt, outside of swatches! Realized halfway through that I was painting in much too little light and couldn’t completely see what I was doing, but I didn’t bother to relocate, so it got a bit thick near the end. I’m kind of digging it, though— the Black Creme reminds me of dripping hot tar. My thumb’s blending is what I’m shooting for on all of them next time. Cleanup was a beast

Sally Hansen HD - DVD

I’d opted for a light color deliberately to hide the chips I expected to get from cleaning out our old warehouse at work. I was immediately reminded that I really don’t like having light-colored nails, and I don’t think the cool periwinkle and lavender shades quite work with my skin tone, but the color was too pretty to take off! Once the major cleaning day was over, I gothed it up with a dark gradient, which will be in the next post.

That Seacret cuticle oil in #1? Aaamazing. It’s part of a full nail care set, a holiday gift from my future father-in-law a couple years back. If you tilt your head left (to match the angle of the original pic), you can see how much is left in the bottle, even after years of occasional (now much more frequent) use. I’ll definitely be picking up another bottle, if/when this one ever runs out. Their whole “minerals from the Dead Sea” angle is a little hokey, but the product is solid!

Sally Hansen Magnetic - Electric Emerald

So, so, SO in love with this! So much visual texture and golden shimmer, like a poisonous green tiger’s eye… It took a lot of willpower not to just repaint with the same polish at the end of the week. I meant to pick up the rest of the colors in the set (I already have Graphite Gravity), but then I spotted Wet n Wild’s new line of magnetics for half the price and with intriguing colors, so… Three WnW magnetic swatches coming soon!

  • Wet n Wild - Black Creme
  • Sally Hansen HD - Laser (camera couldn’t quite capture the purple duochrome action)

Fourth of July nails!

  • Wet n Wild - Saved By the Blue (Fast Dry)
  • Sally Hansen - Red Carpet (Xtreme Wear)
  • OPI - Alpine Snow
  • Wet n Wild - Explosions after Dark (Fast Dry; limited edition for Fourth of July, but same as their Spoiled line’s Shuffle the Deck)
Made me think of demons & lava all week. Maybe I’ve been playing too much Diablo III.
Bath & Body Works - Fire Dance (probably about 15 years old, but in perfect condition)
Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat - Ink Splatter
