My Nails for Thankgiving

So around 11pm last night i got the urge to do my nails and totally forgot about taking photos of all the steps i did to create what i did..so yeah no tutorial but i wanted to explain on my blog how i did it all.

not only did I use nail polish but also makeup pigments!

this is the design I did
























.......
What you will need is
..

emerald green and a rustic red polish - or in my case pigments
clear polish
A sponge
A stamping image of a leaf
A good white polish that you can stamp with- I used konads white
striping brush
gold polish and golden yellow striping polish
and a black polish pen

....

So I applied my base coat first..then on a paper plate i put some off me BFTE (beauty from the earth) mineral pigments in colors Emerald and Isis



































then on the paper plate pour a small amount of clear polish,then with your sponge dab it into the clear polish then dab it into the color of your choice ...then bring to your nail and in patting motions ..pat in the areas you want...What i did was half and half on each nail tip..and added just a little rustic red to the green and vise versa

so when that dries just apply a clear coat over entire nail to seal it all it.

Next I got my nail stamping stuff...with my white konad polish  i applied to the image plate,scraped and picked up with my stamper and applied to the nail ..keep it random for each nail

here is the image I used..this in not a konad image plate..i won this plate and have no idea who made it,sorry

























next I went and filled in the white of the leaf starting off with a yellow gold..and blended some darker gold into it...from there I got my striping brush















and with it a created a few wavy lines on each nail around the leafs.also added a few dots.

And lastly with a black pen polish i added a few drops of black on the gold spots i did...Apply top coat and your all done.

I hope i have explained how i did this clear...cos im hopeless when it comes to directions!...lol.

here is the finished design again
























thanks for stopping by and checking out my blog..means alot to me <3

Orly Cosmic Fx Collection

So today I got a package filled with goodies!!..awhile ago on twitter Orly was doing giveaways for their Cosmic FX  nail polish collection..and I was one of lucky people to win the entire collection.

So I just wanted to share with you some photos of what the 6 polishes look like.
You cant judge all them by the color you see in the bottle because I have found that 1 or 2 look one color in the bottle but when applied to a nails its completely different...example the polish Lunar Eclipse..looking at the bottle its purple in real life ,but in my photos and when applied to nails its blue with fine purple glitter flakes

but here are the photos I wanted to share...
