happy new year

so, yeah, I've been gone. Sorry. I still do my nails, and sometimes, I even take pictures. I've been playing a lot with ombre manicures.

First, I took two polishes, China Glaze Metallic Muse and Rescue Beauty Lounge Recycle, and mixed them.

Then, I took a bright color (Sephora by OPI's Blue Grotto - on sale for $5) and added white polish to it gradually. This one came out lovely.

I also find myself experimenting with textures. I played with OPI's suede finish Lincoln Park After Dark, with the regular lacquer on the tips. Eh.

And then, I used a glitter tip, with a lovely purple, which was a much more festive look. Rimmel's Purple Metal with OPI's Mad As A Hatter on the tip.

I snagged a bottle of Chanel's Particuliere on a recent trip to Nordstrom's, so I will post a swatch of that, with some of the other "greige" colors I have.

'Til then, my lovelies, thanks for dropping by.
