I love owls.

Owls are one of my favorite animals. I have an owl tattoo on my arm. See?

So why not an owl tattoo on my nail? This is LA Colors Color Craze in Sea Siren (2 or 3 coats, can't remember) and the owl is from Big Ruby Nail Tattoos (the Tweet collection). I can't sing their praises enough. I LOVE these nail tattoos. So simple and so cute. I get LA Colors for $1.00 per bottle at Dollar Tree. Excellent deal.

Oh, and P.S. I cut my nails.

What's Crackalackin'?

This is Orly Passion Fruit topped with OPI Silver Shatter. I like this combination! I have been so lazy about blogging lately. Sorry about that. Still lazy though, so here's more pictures, including Passion Fruit by itself. It's a great color.

The Most Beautiful Fail

Holy crap, dude. Amazing, right?...Wrong. It looks so pretty in pictures, but let me take you through this journey in fail. Base: 2 coats of ManGlaze Fuggen Ugly. I then attempted to do my now-signature tiger stripes with a glittery striper (you might have seen some of the matte manicures with topcoat tips and whatnot). The striper is Nail Art by Diamond Cosmetics in Opal Glitter, by the way. Anyways, the striper polish is incredibly thick, so the stripes were just blobs. So, I decided to use the striper stuff all over my nail, since it was pretty. Fast forward to the thick and globby end result. I was unsettled. Nail polish has never before provoked from me that reaction. So I topped the mess with Seche Vite and slapped on some Avon Black As Night matte polish, took some photos and immediately removed the whole mess. 

Here are some more pictures of the pretty nightmare:

Blue and Silver

Sorry it's been a while! I've been lazy. :) This is from a week or so ago. The base is two coats of Zoya Breezi (which is awesome. Seriously.). I layered this with Zoya Charla, Zoya Crystal and Orly Shine. I like it, but I don't think I did the greatest job. So here are more pics:

Orange and Yellow Tiger Stripes

Here's my right hand with its broken nails. I just think these stripes looked better. This is two coats of OPI Atomic Orange (love!!!) and the stripes are Orly Instant Artist in Yellow Submarine. I did a horrible job with the striping polish on my left hand for some reason. You can see it anyway!

Pink Jelly, Sparkly Tips

This is 3 coats of OPI Too Hot Pink to Hold'Em with OPI I Lily Love You on the tips. Those names are a whole lot of awful, aren't they? I love both of these polishes. It is inspired by a look I did for a (super-awesome bestie) friend with a base of China Glaze Purple Panic, and then I Lily Love You, and topped with THPtH'E.

Here's some more pictures!

Yeah, I messed it up, so what?! :)

A non-nail post! My hair.

I told my friend that I wanted rainbow hair, and this is what she did! I love it! :)

Turquoise Tiger

My nails, they are very toite. Toite like a toiger. Haha. This is two coats of China Glaze Turned Up Turquoise (which is SO awesome, but it chips quickly), and the stripes are Nail Art by Diamond Cosmetics in Dark Blue. I love the subtle effect.

Fourth of July

I didn't love this manicure (maybe because I gouged my index nail on something), but I guess I don't hate it. The red is one coat of China Glaze Hey Sailor, the blue is one coat of China Glaze First Mate, the crackle is China Glaze Crackle Glaze in Lightning Bolt and the glitter is Kleancolor Silver Star. It was easy and quick. Maybe next 4th, I'll give myself enough time to do something spectacular!

Gold Digger

This is two coats of Milani 3D topped with one coat of Cover Girl FrostSlicks in Gold Front (a discontinued Dollar Tree find) and one coat of Sally Girl gold glitter (I didn't see a name on the bottle). I got more compliments on this manicure than any other one that I've done. It was very flashy.

Punisher Skulls

Hi everyone! This is kind of a tribute to my boyfriend, 'cause he's a Punisher fan. :) The white is Sally Hansen White On. The details were done with Sally Hansen Nail Art Pen in Black. The red is Zoya Tamsen. Yeah, there is no way I could draw skulls with my left hand, so I just made the nails on my right hand look bloody. The thumbs on both hands look the best, I think. This was a difficult manicure to do, but I really like it.
