I had never created a sugar skull mani, nor had I ever entered a design into a publication for a possible feature, so I was pretty stoked by this challenge. If y’all see my phalanges in Nail It! when autumn rolls around, hollatcha girl & lemme know.
YouTube video & mani pics after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.
After months of seein’ Cupcake Polish pics on the ol’ Instawebs, I finally decided to wipe the drool off’a my phone & place an order. The only thing I have to say is… what the hhhhhhhelllll took me so long to get on the damn bus?!
*glances over at her 27 Jolie Polish bottles*
Oh. Yeah. THAT’S where all of my monies have run off to lately.
Anyboobs…swatch pics, nail art & macros after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.
My three new babies are Berry Good Looking (BGL from here on out), Blood Hound (BH) & Bat-chelor Pad. BGL & BH were the two Cupcakes that literally made my eyeballs fly outta my head all cartoon-style every time I’d see em. So duh, I *had* to get those. And since I’m an absolute whore for blue & green polishes, Bat-chelor Pad was a no-brainer.
I dove right into BGL, as I typically swatch colors from lightest to darkest, but there’s really nothin’ “light” about BGL. ‘Cept for the light that coMES SHOOTIN’ OUTTA YER NAILS WHEN YER WEARIN’ IT CUZ HOLY SHIT LOOKIT THAT LIQUID HOLO SEX!

With V-Day upon us, I wanted to swatch this gorge Julep polish & use some cute stencils from whatsupnails to create my idea of a Valentine’s Day design. I’m not a pink-hearts-kisses-and-romance kinda chick, so I like the unconventional.
Full mani & YouTube tutorial after the jump. So let’s grab a beer & chat.
Julep’s watermelon red creme, Rose, is so juicy & delish. I could’ve almost gotten away with one coat, but because I care nothing for polish-starved children in China, I selfishly slathered on a second coat.
This isn’t a fire engine red. So if true reds aren’t your thing, or if you don’t feel like a rich red looks good with your skintone, this is perfect.
