Flakies are a dream. Cremes with shimmers make me swoon. Jellies are my loves. Metallics, are my mistresses. Together, they have taken over my heart. My name is Julia, and my obsession is nail polish.
Talk to me! :)

Medium square; Matte Funky swirl and cheetah design.
Materials: L.A. Colors - Tropical Storm, Hard Candy - Matte-ly In Love, white acrylic paint, and a small paint brush.
Both hands, the thumb design was the hardest to duplicate on the right hand. :P
Did this while waiting for my dentist appointment about 3 months ago (I really need to catch up on my posting lol). I was a bride’s maid for my Tía’s wedding, and our color scheme was blue. Naturally, my nails needed to go with the theme, so I was testing out a few variations of gradients/fadeouts. These are the first two try-outs, but for reason, it still didn’t feel right…
…so I texted a pic to my cousin, and she suggested not using clear as my last tone, but rather a lighter blue, and voila!
I liked it much better. :) Official pics of full mani coming soon.
Short/medium squoval; Dark green shimmer base, topped with silver shatter, and white skull and crossbones with jeweled eyes on ring finger.
Materials: Ulta Envy, White Craft Smart Acrylic Paint, O.P.I. Silver Shatter, stick on silver jewels, small paint brush, and O.P.I. top coat.
Did this design back when I was in school for an awesome teacher. She had the O.P.I. Silver Shatter from the Pirates of The Caribbean Collection and wanted a design which really brought out that theme. Success! :)
