Blood Chocolate Champagne Celebration with a bonus Bawdy Manicure

I truly adore this look, its one of my most simple looks as of late but I seem to be working on appreciating the simple things in life. I started out with a few coats of this little vixen Sexy Plum by NYX which in regular light looks like a black polish with a shimmer but you really catch the beauty in the sun when hints of burgundy and whine and chocolate peep through. I then sponged a blended bit of Shine by ORLY at the tips to get this beautiful look. 

I couldn't believe the deal that I got with these NYX polishes; I bought Sexy Plum, Fire Amber and Ice Glitter each for $.99 and I got my 1rst fake bottle of ORLY! Its a very pretty semi opaque cream with a purple shimmer polish, but you can smell the doomed 3 chemicals when you open it! 

Also as you will see below not only am I sporting a lovely Thor's hammer keychain ;) and if you look further you will see my current look. A color that I couldn't spoil with anything I fell in love with Want My Bawdy by China Glaze.. the color doesn't show itself well enough in most lights but I adore it and can't stop staring at my nails. It shows the shape and growth improvements of my nails and I just can't stop staring!!

Frostbitten Aurora Borealis

I really love how this look turned out and it came out wonderfully I have to thank the great haul that I got at Sally's last night. 

 I started it out with 2 coats of Want My Bawdy by China Glaze and then sponged on some Blue Bells Ring around the base of the nail; then I used Shine by ORLY in the middle area and finished off with sponging Platinum by ORLY at the tips. Now to enhance the purplish hue of Want My Bawdy I used Love Each Other by ORLY over top all of the nails which brings in a vibrant hint of purple shimmer that is even difficult to capture with a camera.

  • Now a quick question for all of you lovelies; what motivates YOU to buy new polish? What inspires a new look for you?

Starlit Amber manicure

Well, this is one of my more lazy manicures that I've done but I am really proud of it. I finally got the opportunity to use this little beauty by Illamasqua called Creator and finished off the little beauty with Snowflakes by Color Club on the tips. The only downside of this beautiful look is that it is nearly impossible to photograph the beauty of the polish. I really am sorry for the laziness of my polish lately I've been growing through some tough depression lately and its effecting my creativity and I suffered some unfortunate nail breaks as you can see from the lack of length :( .  Here's a question for all of you lovely lacquerista's out there; what do you do when you get depressed when it comes to your nails/your creative outlet?
