Guest post for Carrie at Sassy Lacquer!

Hey y'all! I'm sorry for the radio silence for the last few days. I painted my nails on Thursday but they were for a guest post for Carrie over at Reflections, Sassy Nails, and Silly Diversions! so I couldn't show you guys until today haha. Then I got busy over the weekend by accident so I didn't have any time for nail painting. Anywayyyyy... here are the nails I did for Carrie!


I wasn't super pumped about these at first because as you guys know I'm soo into fall colors lately but I ended up really liking them. I especially love that ring fingah, I want to do a whole mani like that but my god it was time-consuming! Y'all should head on over to Carrie's blog to read more about these and the colors I used and stuff!

  2. This is absolutely stunning! I love each and every nail ;] I actually saw this on Reddit (I'm portionsforf0xes), I commented on your ring finger design - I am amazed you can do that by hand :]

  3. I am expressing my love for this here as well as on Reddit. super duper awesome.

    How can you not really be a pink person and still have enough different pinks to do that. I don't think I have the right pinks for an ombre-ish look. hmm. This is clearly a problem I must solve.

    1. thank you! haha well i wouldn't really say i'm not a pink person, just that i'm not a THIS MUCH PINK person. if you poke through my archives, especially on tumblr, i actually use a lot of pink... there's just always other colors involved (usually blue). this is like pink ridiculousness squared. and yes, you definitely do need enough for an ombre! the five i used here are china glaze something sweet, opi pink friday, zoya shelby, china glaze rich & famous, and zoya reagan :)

    2. I raided my stash (I always want to say 'stache. heh) and have comcluded that I infact do not have a pink ombre collection. I have a dark bright and a paler medium and a pastel that work. However my medium pink (Elephantastic Pink) is too warm toned to work with the others. So I need one for that slot. Then I need a very pale (paler than pastel) or a dark colour like Reagan.

      Hmmm decisions. (sorry for ramble).

      I have spent too much on nail polish lately. I just got a 5 polish haul from Ninja Polish (including Alexandrite! So happy I got in before they ran out since they can't get the pigment anymore!) and I have a few Skyfall on the way as well as the *cough*whole*cough* Zoya Ornate collection. I'm such a lost cause haha
