It's Aquadelic baby!

Hola amores!

I hope every had a great weekend. This weekend was crazy. The people who live above my boyfriend, well, their pipe burst and it started raining in my boyfriend's apartment. We had to go about with an umbrella and rain boots until the property manager came.. It was 4 in the morning!
 I can't believe it's Tuesday already!
Today I have for you a nail swatch. No nail art. I haven't had time.

China Glaze Aquadelic is from the Electro Pop collection. It's a gorgeous aqua creme color. 
I had a bit of a problem applying this but with the second coat it was fine.
It was a bit on the thick side.
I used this as the base for the Adventure Time BMO post.

I don't have much of the Electro Pop collection but I fell in love with them.
I will be getting more.

What colors do you like from the Electro Pop collection?

Until tomorrow!

Battery low, shutdown

Hola Amores!

This week has been tiresome. I had an endoscopy on Wednesday and I had an MRI today. I've been throwing up because of the stuff they have pumped into me. I am just happy that we are one step closer to find out why I have been so sick.

I am continuing with my Adventure Time nail art. There is so much to do I am unsure of when I will be done!

Name: Beemo
Gender: None
Species: Robot
Occupation: Video Game System

Yes, Finn, it goes in my butt.
Base Color: China Glaze Aquadelic

The MRI technician fell in love with my nails. 
She squealed when she saw them.

I hope you enjoyed this manicure!
I love it!
I think my next one will be Lumpy Space Princess and Lumpy Space People.
I am open to suggestions!

Until tomorrow my loves.

What the lump?

Hola amores!

How is everyone doing? I hope everyone is doing well!

Today I have for you an Adventure Time manicure. Just Finn and Jake. I've been completely obsessed with Adventure Time and it really just reminds me of my boyfriend and I. We make adventures out of everything.
I was on pain killers when I did this so it's not the best that I could have done. But I hold it dearly to my heart!
Onwards!!!

Rescue Beauty Lounge: Locavore
Sally Hansen: Brisk Blue
Acrylic Paint
I'm going to be doing an Adventure Time series.. Perhaps the Ice King or Marceline next?
or my favorite??
LUMPY SPACE PRINCESS.
Looove.

I need a better light source. Which lamps are great to use?
I also think I am going to try the light box with a black background. I feel the color will be better.
We shall see.

Until tomorrow amores.

Propane and Propane Accessories!

Hola amores!

I hope everyone is doing well! I have decided that I am going to be doing swatches a lot more now as well as stamping. I love doing freehand nail art but I don't always have time for it. I've been busy recently which is why I have sadly neglected my blog. I am going to try to update it as much as I can.
I love that blogger now has the option to reply to comments left on blogs. It makes it so much easier to respond to you all so make sure to check that out.

Onward to my manicures!!!
Luanne Platter and the Manger Babies.
I only did 2 of the 4 Manger Babies because I was quite exhausted.
The men of Rainy Street.
(left to right)
Boomhauer (who ended up looking like a muppet)
Hank Hill
Dale Gribble
Dale

This was a fun series to do. I could have gone on and on but I wanted to move on to another series.
I have so many ideas but I think for the next few days, I will be posting swatches!!

Until tomorrow amores.

Peggy Hill es bueno

Hola chicas!!!

I hope everyone is doing well. Today I have two manicures for you! Neither of them are winners but I would like to share them anyways.

First up is a manicure using feathers from Michaels. It took me an hour and a half to do one hand. It is so far from perfect.
Base coat: OPI Nail Envy
Base Color: L'Oreal Club Prive
Nails inc top coat.
Feather
2 more top coats.
It was super hard to get them to stick!!!
I love them but this came out horrible.
My cuticles are not dry, that was the topcoat that got everywhere!
I think I will use glue next time.
I am definitely going to try this again.
Any tips on the feather mani?

Manicure numero dos!

We're All Just Disco Hippies

Hola chicas!!
Today I have Bettina in Disco Hippie, a Puerto Rican brand of polish, that Nory sent me in our recent swap.
I broke my ring finger nail bowling over the weekend. It was a lot of shorter than now so I wanted to wait a bit before I made another blog post.
Disco hippie is an orange shimmer that has a flash of gold shimmer.
I got this mani idea from Let Them Have Polish.
She layered each Disco polish over black!
I fell in love with the polishes and the different colors they have hidden in them.
Look at the green flash that came out of nowhere!!
I layered one coat of Disco Hippoe over one coat of Wet N Wild Black Creme.
It's absolutely gorgeous and does not look like the color in the bottle.
This is such a gorgeous polish and the formula is heavenly. 
I want more of their polishes.
I cannot get enough of them.
The quality is great! 

What do you ladies think??

Hola chicas!

Sadly, I have yet to find my nail art brushes. So this manicure is brought to you buy a push pin. First up is American Apparel polish in MacArthur Park.
MacArthur Park is a murky moss green with yellow tones and a cr√®me finish.
In other words, it's baby poop green haha
I looove it. It's so ugly it's gorgeous!
American Apparel polish goes on super smooth and is completely opaque in two coats.


On to my nail art..
I'm probably the only person that will ever appreciate this.
But !!!!!!
Propane and propane accessories! 
It's Hank Hill form King of the Hill.
KotH is hands down my favorite show.
I am watching it and thus it inspired me to do it.
I didn't add any others because frankly, I am exhausted!!!

Oh and head over to Fierce Makeup and Nails!!!

Magnetic Attraction

Hola amores!


Happy New Year to all! I hope everyone had a safe and Happy New Year.
I somehow misplaced my nail art brushes so I haven't been able to do any.
I need to check all of my bags and check my boyfriend's apartment.
I hope I find them because I seriously cannot remember what brushes I have.


Today I present to thee my first magnetic nail polish.
nails inc Houses of Parliament.

Houses of Parliament magnetic nail polish is a metallic purple shade.

HOW DOES MAGNETIC POLISH WORK?
This unique formula has been specially developed with metallic particles to create a pattern on the nail using magnetic forces. As the magnet is held over the nail, the iron powder in the formulation gravitates toward the magnet forming the pattern/design secretly hidden in the magnet for an astonishing finish!
 (description taken from nails inc website)
nails inc can currently be found at www.sephora.com
As well as www.nailsinc.com
Though they do not ship the US.

What do you think about magnetic nail polish?
