My co-worker at the time had these nails. I do nail art on my natural nails, but that doesn’t mean I can’t appreciate a quality nail job when I see one. Peep those inlaid crushed shells though!

Saturday Swatch: Revlon Facets of Fuchsia

HNG. That’s pretty much all I have to say about this color. I love it, I’m in love, I have eyes for no other (lol, okay maybe not that far, but I really do love it). I mean LOOK at it. The depth, the pop of purple, it’s just too good. This color was totally worth the full price I paid for. Oh yeah, did I mention it’s a Deborah Lippmann Bad Romance dupe? Cause it is.

These pictures are pretty old, but from what I remember it is a sheer black/grey jelly, so you’ll definitely want to layer it over a black creme or more opaque black jelly (here I have 2 coats layered over O.P.I Onix). If you don’t mind that, the application is just great. Make sure to topcoat it as well, to get the most glossiest smooth finish, I recommend two coats, or something thick like Gelous or Seche Vite.

With the right color combos, shatter can still be hot. ;)

Nants ingonyama bagithi Baba!

The Lion King is my absolute favorite movie of all time. I painted these in December for the re-release of The Lion King in theaters. The scenes I chose to do were Simba’s presentation, the opening sunrise, and passing of the log and time by Pumba, Timon, and Simba. Although these nails were challenging, they were really fun to do because I have so much love for this amazing movie. <3

FREE ZOYA WITH $10 DOLLAR PURCHASE

Happy 4th to all my lovely followers! :D

Let me ask you, what is more happy than a bright red bottle of nail polish???
Oh yeah, a FREE bright red bottle of nail polish! And all y’all can get thanks to Zoya and thanks to ‘MURICA.

The only catch is you have to spend 10 bucks, but you get free shipping AND a free nail polish. So, there’s the silver lining.

(I heard a lot of talk that you can just place the order on the nail polish Liberty, and then use the code, and it will be free, but that is NOT true. I have tried it myself. And Zoya confirmed on their facebook page “We cancelled all orders that were placed that did not comply with the terms of the promotion (Orders that just had a free america and nothing else). You can reuse the code to place a new order.” Just a heads up not to waste your time! Happy shopping!)

Anyway, have a happy 4th you beautiful people!
