October Nights, Autumn 2014

Left hand (top), L—›R (from thumb):

  • Custom multichrome by PrettyJelly on Etsy; named Riften. Overlaid with Kleancolor Chunky Holo Black.
  • Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer on Etsy. Overlaid with Sinful Colors Cloud 9.
  • Essie Bouncer, It’s Me!, overlaid with Sinful Colors Hottie, a dab of Chunky Holo Black, and topped with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope for extra holo shine.
  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers to Cloud 9 gradient. Overlaid with a bit of Max Factor Fantasy Fire on the purple end.
  • Bouncer, It’s Me! overlaid with Chunky Holo Black and Fantasy Fire.

Right Hand, L—›R (from pinkie):

  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers, Zoya Miley, Sinful Colors Cloud 9.
  • Sinful Colors Hottie with a dab of Kleancolor Chunky Copper, overlaid with Wet n’ Wild Kaleidoscope.
  • Riften overlaid with Chunky Holo Black.
  • Lilac Coolers overlaid with Chunky Copper, Chunky Holo Black, and Fantasy Fire.
  • OPI Just Spotted the Lizard overlaid with Dragonspell and Chunky Copper; fades to Hottie.

I couldn’t decide what to do, so I DID IT ALL.

Favorites:

  • The real Chunky Holo Black is incredible, especially for a $3-$4 polish; it’s ridiculous.
  • I was worried about Riften upon seeing it flat on my palette, but it’s awesome on the nail. Berry-amber shift (like Sally Hansen Nail Prisms - Amber Ruby) with a subtle golden green on the edges. Makes me miss running around with my sword and spells in the Autumn Forest. Highly recommend PrettyJelly; she’s great.
  • L'Oreal Lilac Coolers is pretty and layers well.
  • Dragonspell by ALIQUIDLaquer. Beautiful & unique.

Most Disappointing:

  • Essie’s Bouncer, It’s Me!. I wanted an electric blue jelly and since Essie is so popular I expected good quality. But the application is streaky and uneven, and it dries to a finish that looks like cheap blue candle wax. Not one to wear without a topcoat, for sure.

Nothing too special this week; just a simple jelly sandwich with L'oReal Lilac Coolers, Max Factor Fantasy Fire, and Kleancolor Chunky Copper & Chunky Holo Black. The amber nails are Dragonspell by ALiquidLaquer.

I’ve been wanting to do some crazy Halloween nails, but may not have time due to my more “serious” pursuits.

Speaking of; I’ve seen other nail artists say that people give them a hard time by saying things like “you must have too much time on your hands”. How rude. And it’s not necessarily the case. At least for me, this is the one thing I can sit down to do that just doesn’t matter at all. And that’s why it’s relaxing: it’s totally frivolous, temporary, and in the end you have a cool/pretty design to cheer you up on stressful days. Just a thought.

KLEANCOLOR CHUNKY HOLO BLUEBELL - Day 5 Blue Nails (I know I’m cheating)

The first picture is the base that I used which is Yodel Me On My Cell by OPI.

I was so excited to hear the doorbell because I knew it meant my Kleancolor polishes have arrived.

The second picture is with 2 coats of the Chunky Holo Bluebell on.

Then the rest is just the polish in different lights. I’m obsessed. It’s amazing.
