Diagonal Leopard Print II - Seaweed

Went to Rite Aid today and picked up Seaweed by Sinful Colors from their Adventure Island Collection which everyone has been saying is the Pirates of the Carribean Dupe Collection. But for 2 bucks? It's a win! :D

I was going to purchase the other colors from their collection but I have very similar colors close to theirs so I only picked up one.

At first, the polish was very very streaky. But since a lot of polishes do that, all you have to do it apply a 2nd or 3rd coat to achieve that color in the nail polish bottle. :)

Looks a bit like a light tan sandy color eh?
Better angle?
Added the leopard print!

Taken with my crackberry
Base Color - Seaweed by Sinful Colors
Pink Dots - Something Sweet by China Glaze
Black - Time Off by Sinful Colors

As you can tell by the pictures, my digital camera and blackberry camera shows a different color eh? I think my bb camera shows the true Seaweed color; whereas my digital camera takes it as a very light tan sandy color right? What do you think? :P

Oxidized Aqua

My little cousin wanted me to paint her nails so she chose the colors & here's what it looks like!

A closer view! Sorry it's a bit messy!

And that is pretty much it!
All pictures were taken with my crackberry since my camera doesn't cooperate with me sometimes. :P

Flip Flop Fantasy

Hey Everyone!

Sorry it's been a little while. I had to cut my nails shorter since one of my nails broke :( But here's a great color for the summer!

no flash

This color is very tricky to take a picture of. It looks hot pink but then it looks like a neon orange! Nonetheless, I love this color! :)

The ring finger was a free style design, so it's super super easy! Watch my tutorial do get this look! :) You can always improvise and use different colors!

Half Leopard Print

Saw a picture on tumblr and thought that I'd give this design a go!

What do you guys think of it? I've been running out of design to do! Sorta. Since I work full-time, I haven't been able to do my nails or make any tutorials. AHHH! What to do?!

Zoya Swatches!

So I finally got my package from Zoya! Took longer than I thought but everything was there :) This was a promo that Zoya was having where you buy one item on their website and you get Caitlin and Dove for free! How could I resist?!

From left to right:
Kotori, Caitlin, & Dove

I didn't know what to expect from this color when I first got it, but it's a beautiful fine shimmer glitter polish!
It's looks a bit darker on my nail eh?

Midnight in NY by Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure
Can you see the small shimmer fine rainbow glitters!? It's hard to see :(

A coat of Kotori on top of Midnight in NY
For the first polish, Kotori, I put on three coats! But if you use a black polish first & then Kotori on top, it'll give you the same effect as three coats!

That's all the Zoya swatches for now. Talk to you guys later! :)
