What should probably be Easter nails

For some reason the gods keep casting sickness upon me *shakes fist* I wore this for a week or more, and it was all picked and nasty (and not that well applied to start with). Either way, it was pretty cool.

Essence Date in the Moonlight with Femme Fatale Hydraxia lazy dab gradient finished with Ozotic Elytra #528.  Please ignore the lack of cleanup, and/or messy cleanup and all other crappyness.

I started feeling much better yesterday, and I am almost back to baseline today! Also, the sun she is a blazing. Do you know what that calls for?

Jade Uau!

Now I have stuffed my sausage legs into some bright yellow skinny jeans and will be toddling off to the mall to see if anyone has Chanel Taboo yet *pines* Pin It

Femme Fatale - Shimmering Snowcap + OPI - Lights of the Emerald City

Sorry I suck at posting lately. My cuticles have been haggard, and I have been wearing a lot of glitter that I am too lazy to remove. Here is Femme Fatale Shimmering Snowcap and OPI Lights of the Emerald City layered together over black. LotES is sort of  a shitty glitter on it's own. It just looks weird. I mean, it is gorgeous, but ugly? There is something wrong about it. Anyway, it looks pretty spanky over Shimmering Snowcap.

One coat over 1 coat Wet & Wild Black Creme no top coat, indoor lighting.

+ 1 coat of LotEC no top coat

+ glitter food and SV outdoors.

I went a bit too gung ho on the pinky there. Pin It

Ninja Polish - The Enigma Collection - Ambrosia & Divinity

I love me some colour shifting. Don't we all? I ordered these as soon as they were available. I love Ninja Polish. They ship so fast.

Ambrosia was more subtle. There was a colour shift, but it wasn't balls to the wall. That being said, it is a really pretty polish regardless. I need to try layering it some time.

These polishes both dry sort of matte. I didn't capture it with Ambrosia, but I did get one semi decent pic of Divinity naked. They aso dry really fast. Like, while you are painting they are drying. It made it difficult for me to get a satisfactory polish job done. You need to work quick with these. Not like, superman quick, but get your ass in gear.

This is 2 coats of Ambrosia, and I should have done a third because you can still see a bit of what VNL I actually have since I nubbed to nubsville (you can see my meat! FRESH! *slap*) *cough*

Here is Divinity, also 2 coats. This one is more opaque.  First pic is with no top coat so you can sort of see the mattishness.

These are all with topcoat.

Sorry for the finger meat and blur etc. You can buy these both at Ninja Polish though I think Divinity is sold out atm.

P.S. go enter my giveaway. Pin It

300 Followers and Femme Fatale - Veil Of The Siren

Ooh 300 followers! People tend to do giveaways for this kind of shit right? Fabulous. Consider it done.

I am incredibly cheap, so there will not be any epic mega prize here. No one is giving me anything to give away. I actually PAID for this stuff. Then I will have to pay to ship it to YOU. Who are you? I do not know yet. Currently there is a collective you, but I digress.

All you need to do is follow me to enter. If you enter more than once, all of your entries are void.

What are you entering to win? These 2 polishes which I have done a very shameful mani with. I swear it is beautiful. I promise. I have a habit of sort of running my nails across a magazine cover when there is too much on the tip, like I use too many layers and it's starting to sort of dry, and then it pulls and there is like a hangy endy bit. Then I magazine swipe. The downfall is that something you just end up making the glitter look weird at the tip of your nail from some angles. See below for examples.

This is 2 coats of Femme Fatal Veil of the Siren over top of OPI Did you 'ear about Van Gogh. I tried layering this polish over lots of stuff, and this looked the best. I thinned the bojangles out of VotS. It was too opaque for me without thinning.

You can enter to win both of them for layering purposes at the end of this post.

These photos are not awesome as per usual. I should just have a permanent shitty paint job/photo job disclaimer somewhere.  It is all indoor lighting, bathroom vs. second bedroom. Some pictures are especially crappy, but I chose to post them because I think they show the actual polish looking cool, so never you mind my crappy painting and funky dry skin :D

I am posting 10 pictures of my hand in essentially the same position. To me these pictures all bring something different to the table. To many, I have posted too many fucking pictures. Enjoy.

I'm leaving this open for 30 days because my I have been on sick leave for a while, and by then I will have a real pay cheque frigging finally. Also 30.. 300? Whatever!

2 coats over 1 coat of OPI I saw... you saw... we saw... Warsaw. Suzi.. can we get a char limit plz?

ISYSWSW or Warsaw as it will likely be called on the boards, is a fabulous 1 coater. Love.

I also put 1 coat of aengland Order of the Garter over Warsaw which was sexy and shimmery, but I think I hid it all in glitter.

2nd bedroom lighting

Bathroom lighting, formerly fabulous stove light.. perfect for doing makeup if you want to look like you set the gun on whore when you get to work.

Back From the Brink of Death with a belated ValenCrows Collection

Folks. I was bitten by the plague. I was down for 2 weeks with the itis. I ended up giving it to my SO who said to me one night "Reece.. I can feel the cold, icy grip of death pulling me down." Melodramatic? Tres. We are both still coughing :S WHY WONT YOU DIE?

Anyhoo, here is the CrowsToes 2013 Valentines Day Collection. These are all awesome with great names. I love me some Lauri. She can make a gal laugh and swoon at the same time.

Here is 1 coat of Heartshaped box of Horse *!@#! over OPI Every Month is Octoberfest.

2 coats Heartless over OPI Casino Royale

2 coats (likely unnecessary) over Daisy Purple Magic

It has this wicked hot pink flash that was hard to photograph.

1 coat Um no... he Went to the Pawn Shop over Essie Turquoise & Caicos

I haven't polished my nails in some time. I'm still a little shaky on the draw. I almost sort of apologize for the crappy wonkiness and blur, but I have been told I say I am sorry too much for stupid shit which this is. I have always sucked at telling you every single colour and shape of glitter in a polish. I have the attention span of a gnat. If you have any questions just email me, and once I remember this blog has an email I will reply to you <3

CrowsToes can be purchased from Llarowe, Overallbeauty, Shop Eclecticco and probably others that I am not aware of or have forgotten due to brain rot. Pin It
