FAIL = First Attempt In Learning

Sparitual Oasis

I see people do beautiful dry marble designs all the time, and they make it look like a piece of cake.  Either they are really just that good, or this is something that takes a little more practice.

I used Wet’n’Wild Whipped Topping as a base for all of my nails.  Next, I put on a blob of Sparitual Oasis, and I used a pointed dotting tool to swirl the polish.  This is where I was experimenting with amounts of blue and white, and how hard to push, where to swirl, how to swirl, I mean really…the combinations of ways to do it are endless and overwhelming!  And then, if the polish begins to stiffen up at all, forget it!  You will just leave bald spots.  And oh the bald spots!  Some people make those look so easy to cover up.  When I tried to, it truly looked like a blob of paint tossed on to a weird looking nail.  😛  Anyway, when that was all done, I topped it off with a coat of Wet’n’Wild Up in the Air, because sometimes glitter makes designs better.  Yeah, not today.  lol

There are chips and dents and bald spots.  Whatevs.

Thanks for reading about my fail.  If you have any suggestions, please pass them on!

Maleficent or Magnificent?

Orly Mistress of All Evil

For this look I was WAY excited to try out my new Orly Color Blast Mistress of All Evil, which is part of the Disney Villains Collection you can get right now.  This polish is for Maleficent, and if there was a way to capture her colors, they got it spot on! I think of her with her purple and green, and this is perfect!  I have tried to upload two videos to show you their glory, but I can’t!  Meanwhile, they are on my Instagram, so check them out there!  https://instagram.com/dontjudgemeokaynails/

Disney Villain Nail Art

For an accent nail, I used one of these adorable Maleficent water slides, and topped it off with the SpaRitual polish you saw above in Invention.  Both the Orly and the SpaRitual went on very smoothly and had an excellent shine, all while color changing!

Disney Nail Polish

Maleficent Nail Art

The end result was a mani that I couldn’t stop admiring.  I have been into the Disney looks lately.  I like Disney, but I’m not sure what brought on this recent craze.  Anyway…there was one other polish in this collection I was eyeballing (for Ursula), but I am really trying to show restraint.  🙂

Thanks for reading!

My Collection – The Pinks

Nail Polish Swatches

My Collection

Pink Nail Polish

The Pinks

Pink Nail Polish

The Pinks

Here are my pink polishes.  To be honest, I am a little surprised at how much I have that falls in the pink category, because I don’t think of myself as a pink person.  But, a lot of them are on the coral side, and I do like that shade, especially in the summer.  🙂  Here we go!

Color Club Halo-Graphic

First is Color Club Halo-Graphic, which is a holo polish that I love.  It isn’t exactly opaque in one coat, but the shine makes it seem like it is plenty if you are in a hurry.  Other wise, two coats is perfect!

Mary Kay Lava

Next up is Mary Kay Lava.  This polish can look pink, orange, yellow, and a little red, depending on the lighting.  It falls in the pink category though because for the most part, that is what you’ll see.  It goes on easily in two coats and is such a fun color!

Xtreme Wear Strobe Light

Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Strobe Light is one of my all time favorites!  It can be used on its own as a glittery wonder, or as a topper.  It is pink and holographic glitter, and the way it shines would stop traffic.  I highly recommend it!

Satin Glam Chic Pink

This next pink polish is Sally Hansen Satin Glam Chic Pink.  It needs about three coats to be all the way opaque.  On its own, it does dry to a beautiful satin finish.  If sealed with a top coat, it looks glittery.  I have not tried a matte top coat with it though to see if that keeps the satin look or not.

Diamond Strength Pulled Sugar

Sally Hansen Diamond Strength Pulled Sugar is an extremely delicate looking polish.  I typically use it as a topper, but can be sheer and beautiful on its own.  It is a very baby pink with sparkles in it, and makes it match any look all year round.

Xtreme Wear Fruit Ta Ta

This next polish is a jelly with white, black, pink, and red hex glitters in it.  It is a little tricky to get the pieces spread evenly, but it a cute topper for lots of looks.  (Especially at Valentine’s Day.)

Xtreme Wear Coral Reef

This one looks a little orangey in the picture, but it is more of a coral color.  It is Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Coral Reef.  While this is beautiful to paint your nails with, I really like to use it for water marbeling.  When used to paint, it is actually good to go in one coat.

Triple Shine Water Melon

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Water Melon is a jelly polish that is very sheer on its own.  I like to use it for watercolor looks the most.  There is another one of these coming up.  Of the two, this is more pink.

Megalast Tropicalia

Tropicalia is the perfect name for this Wet n Wild Megalast polish.  It is a tropical, summery color.  It has a really wide brush that I am not such a fan of, but other than that, it is easy to work with.

Megalast Sophisticated Lady

This next polish is also a Wet n Wild Megalast, and is called Sophisticated Lady.  It is a metallic pastel.  It can be very pretty, but it is hard to get it applied without lots of streaking.  In addition, it has that wide brush that isn’t my favorite.

Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Piggy is your basic pink.  These miracle gel polishes really do have that glossy gel finish and are very easy to apply.  Two coats of the color and one of the special top coat and you are good to go for at least a week.

Triple Shine Jell-ous?

Sally Hansen Triple Shine Jell-ous? is a sheer jelly polish that is pinkish-purple.  Again, these are great for watercolor nails, but can be pretty on their own or topping off other colors.

Fresh Paint Guava

This polish is borderline neon, but is absolutely gorgeous!  I love, love, love it!  It is Fresh Paint Guava.  It can look bright or calm, and is wonderful to bring a bright spot to any mani.  (It also looks great on toes.)  Two coats and you’ll look great!

Sparitual Improvisation

Sparitual Improvisation is a sheer polish that either needs to be worn that way or use many coats to get opaque.  It is interesting when it catches the light because of the way that sparkles.  There are pink and blue glitters in it that make it ver unique and a fun addition to any look.

Color Club Cloud Nine

This is the second of three holographic polishes that fall in the pink pile.  This one has a nice pink hue to it when the light isn’t on it.  But, like the other Color Club beauties, once it catches the light, look out!

Color Club Cherubic

Color Club Cherubic has a more neutral tone to it when the holo isn’t shining like mad.  This one works really well for stamping and adds a lot of spice to stamped looks.

Glosstini Bahama Mama

Covergirl Outlast Glosstini Bahama Mama is that perfect beachy color.  It is a summery coral color with silver sparkles.  You do need two-three coats for it to be solid.  I wish that I had this color in a larger bottle, since painting with the teeny square top is a little awkward.

Sally Girl Cool

Sally Girl Cool is a perfect neon pink.  You need about three coats on its own, or you can paint it over white and it pops a lot quicker.  If you are experimenting with neons, these Sally Girl polishes are great.

Funky Fingers Riptide

Funky Fingers Riptide is a sheer, barely pink, glitter polish.  It is a little thick, but isn’t a problem to work with.  In addition, this is a color changing polish!  (And it really does work!)  Indoors, it is the sheer, barely there mani, but outdoors it turns sort of brown.  It is fun to wear anytime you will be able to admire it in the sun.

Ulta Diva

Ulta Diva is just barely tinted pink.  It is a glitter polish that works better as a topper than anything else.  Since it is so sheer, you can pair it with anything.  The glitters are tiny and iridescent, and make for a nice eye catcher.

Sinful Colors TimbleberryAnd finally, Sinful Colors Timbleberry.  I haven’t had the best of luck with this polish.  It is very runny and makes it easy to fudge.  Other than that, the color is lovely, so I think that is why I don’t pitch it.  I keep thinking I can make it happen.  🙂

WHOA!  That was a lot.  Thanks for reading!  Do you have any faves?
