JDM and Fixies : Part DOS

So, I split this in two. 
It seemed like a lot of pictures for one post. I don't like that.
SO Here's part two, the Fixies:

This post is MUCH shorter.
A pink and yellow fixie!
Because his fixie just happens to be pink/yellow.

Like pink lemonade! Mmm yummy...

My pinky has a cog on it.
Which is basically a gear. Well, it looks like one.

Yaaay, sunny picture! (:

That's all for now<3

JDM and Fixies: Part UNO

Painting nails. A girl's hobby. Generally.
But what about guys? They like cars and stuff, right?
Well, I had a special request to do my nails on JDM and fixies. Actually, there was a mention of skating and mustaches too, but I decided against those.  In case you didn't knooooow, JDM is basically car stuff. Stands for Japanese Domestic Market. I think.  And fixies are just fixed-gear bikes. Google this stuff!
So, here's my JDM and fixie mani.

First off, the JDM hand.

"JDM baby <3"

 This is the JDM badge.

Yes, that is a Honda sign thing. 'Twas requested!

Sunny pictures always make me happy!

Part 2 up next! <3

A date and a HAUL!

Hey guys! Yesterday, I had such a fun day!
I hung out at the malls near me, and wasn't really planning on buying nail polish, but it just ended up happening. It was inevitable. I did limit myself though, cos I wasn't paying for any of it with my own money. Shhh!
So I spent 5 hours, and ended up with ONLY 17 nail polishes.

First off, my BUTTER londons: The Black Knight, Trout Pout, and No More Waity, Katie
The red was free when I bought two! It doesn't seem to have a name.

 Two Claire's magnetic polishes, which the bf picked out for me!

 Next, two Icing polishes: Blue Ice and After Party

From Sephora, my $OPIs: Read My Palm, Stop Stocking Me!, and a matte top coat.

 From Ulta, Layla holo polish! I only picked one, because they were almost $16 a bottle. ):

 Orly Space Cadet!
You do not know how excited I was when I found this beauty!

 Nyx girls Moonwalk and Under the Moon

 Zoya Opal!
I was looking for Maisie and Chloe too, but they were gone! ):


 A bottle of Seche, finally!

And this is what my collection looks like now:

154-ish usable polishes!

I didn't pay for ANY of those 17 polishes I got. They were all paid for by the boyfriend!

That's all for now<3

Under the Sea!

Do you remember that children's book about the rainbow fish?
I think it was called Rainbow Fish, quite literally..

ANYWAYS, there have been a lot of mermaid/fishy manis coming around, and I like the way they look.  So I decided I would do one too!  Let me tell you something, they can be time consuming. But the results look charming!~

My cuticles were horrid... But anyways, this design was on my right hand. And I'm right-handed. I have no idea why I decided to do a design of this difficulty with my non-dominant hand.  Betcha couldn't tell!

Indoors, no flash, indirect sunlight.

Indoors, flash

Blurry! Look at the sparkle though(:

All of these were painted with 2 coats of an aqua colour that I frankened myself.

For my thumb, I sponged on a gold. Like how the water shimmers!

 For my pointer and ring fingers, I did "mermaid slippers," which is basically a gold glitter gradient, starting at the base and fading towards the tips. The gold Color Club's Gingerbread Man.

 For my middle finger, I took a medium-sized dotting tool and dotted on blues, purple, and silver in a scaly pattern. Then the tip was a light coat of  Color Club's Gingerbread Man.  And again with the torn up cuticles.  (I know, I know, I have to take better care of them!)

For my pinky, I carefully and very painstakingly used a blue glitter striper by LA Colors Art Deco to freehand more scales.  I then used a small dotting tool to dot each scale with a drop of China Glaze's Snow Cap to add that little touch of mermaid magic in each scale. 

No lie, I think I stopped every other row. It took a lot of work.

But the results were worth it!

And finally, one last sunlight pic to 'wave' goodbye to! 
You get it? No? Okay.

That's all for now<3

Arizona Tea!

Ever had an Arizona? The tea. It's so good. And they're only a dollar! 

The Green tea with ginseng and honey is my favourite..
Soooo of course they require a mani!

First off, sorry for the blurry pictures.  I used my sucky camera. But bear with me!

 My inspiration:

 And the corresponding mani:

But for my pinky, I did the symbol for "tea"

The bottom one!

And for the second set's inspiration:

From google images, I don't own it.

Arizona Lemon Iced Tea~! Which is my brother's favourite.


That's all for now<3
