Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art Challenge – Day 3

Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art Challenge

Inspired by a movie

Hey, everybody, guess what I have for you today?  Book review!  No.  Nail art!  The movie I chose to represent my Day 3 entry in the Comic-Con Geek Week Nail Art challenge is Star Trek (2009).

Since I am a horrible artist, I chose to use my nail art to represent the uniforms of the crew of the Starship Enterprise.  I even used my brushes again to paint the little symbols on the breast of the uniform!  I tried doing them on a plastic bag like I did for my Day 1 submission HERE, but that did not work and I ended up painting them directly on the nail  by hand.  Oddly enough, they came off the bag overnight and now I have random gold Star Trek emblems on my workspace.  Ahhh, memories.

Happy (almost) hump day everybody!  Disco Lane is the last color I am showing you from the Nails Inc. The After Party set.  It’s is a black creme with a scattered holographic finish.  The formula is a little on the thick side, but wasn’t difficult to apply and came out nice and smooth with two layers of topcoat.

This one is a scattered holo, not a linear holo like Layla’s or Jade Holographics, so if that’s the style you’re going for this is not your polish.  I’ve seen negative reviews of this color, as it doesn’t give you the same look as a linear holo, but I like it.  I love the way it catches the light randomly and gives you a beautiful flash of color from within it’s murky depths.  Yeah, yeah, I know, but it’s pretty cool.  🙂

Soho Street is another part of The After Party collection from Nails Inc It’s a bit more of my Christmas nail polish haul that I couldn’t be happier about!

Just like the bottle says, it looks like a glitter party in a bottle!  It’s a clear base with rainbow colored hex glitter in various sizes.  I was a bit sloppier than I’d like with it, unfortunately, but you can see that the two coats I used gives a ton of both color and sparkle.  This one will be great over other colors, also, can’t wait to mix it up!

Everybody out there, can you seriously send me some good nail juju??  Look at my nubs!  I can’t seem to stop breaking them and it makes me very sad.  I will be researching vitamins in the near future.  Does anyone out there use a vitamin for their nails and/or hair that they swear by?  If so, who makes it?  *sweet smile*

Let me know, seriously.  Thanks for reading!!  🙂

Nails Inc. Covent Garden Market from The After Party Set

Hey, everybody!!  Happy new year!!  Here are swatches from the Nails Inc. The After Party set.  These are my first polishes from Nails Inc., and I think I like them!  Being a full coverage glitter, it is a bit thick, but it was not too difficult to apply.

Covent Garden Market is the first swatch I have to share from this set.  As the bottle says, it is a full cover glitter, they definitely don’t advertise falsely with that statement.  It’s a bright, candy apple red that is fully opaque in two coats.  Being a glitter, it drinks top coat like a newborn drinks formula, but the results are worth it, in my opinion!

My nails are incredibly short at the moment, so my work came out a bit sloppy, but I am sure you can appreciate the sparkle and beautiful color of this polish.  I can’t wait to try this again when my nails get a little longer, I will definitely use at least one more layer of top coat next time. 

Thanks for stopping by, hope you all have a wonderful day!!
