Some Randoms..

Here are a bunch of randoms from over the past couple of weeks!! :)

I'm really in love with this look! I started with Orly Nite Owl, sponged on some Sinful Snow Me White, then used Revlon Colorstay French Roast to stamp on the animal print. Topped it all off with a coat of Out the Door Northern Lights!

This one is a bit of a dud.  I used Zoya Evvie, then using a dotting tool, dotted on Sinful Snow Me White, and a dark pink Wet N Wild mini (not sure of the name).  I used NYC Matte Me Crazy to mattify everything. Just an eh ok kind of mani. I think different colors would look great, and maybe this is just a more fall/winter look.

Love love love this! I used Orly Lollipop on thumb, index, and pinky fingers, and Orly Velvet Rope on my middle and ring fingers.  I used the flower stickers from my May Nail Art Society kit (see pic below).
This would be a good Easter mani I think, but these colors, to me, are just classic. 
Topped off with Out the Door Northern Lights natch!

A Pretty Epic Nail Fail - Outlining

I've admired this outlined or framed manicure by Kayla Shevonne.  I think it is so classy looking (especially the black and white) and I wanted to give it a try.  I had started with a coat of white, and then 2 coats of Orly - Elation Generation.  I really really wanted to like this polish, it is so stinking pretty in the bottle!   And maybe if i wore it on its own, or maybe over a dark pink, I will like it.  But with wearing it over white, it just looked thick.  I used a black striper, which I have used previously and haven't had any issues; maybe using such a long, thin brush was NOT the way to go! I will have to try again using a nail art brush, one that is a little shorter, and easier (for me) to control.
I do like the idea of this combo of colors, but wow does this look BAD!  :)
My husband even asked me if I thought it was Halloween!
