Black and Blue Butterfly Nail Art/ Deborah Lippmann Superstar

Hey hey!

Today I have two manicures, since I didn't have time earlier this week to upload what I had on my nails :) So it's kind of a dump post haha.

Earlier this week I wore two coats of Deborah Lippmann's Superstar, a perfect glitter for fall. Fall I usually don't associate with glitter polishes, but this one is subdued enough to work with a fall outfit, in my opinion :D

And if you follow me on twitter, earlier this week I said that I was planning to do my nails based of my mom's shirts haha. So here's the shirt:

And here's how I did my nails using A Sally Hansen black creme polish (can't find it to give you the name, darn it), acrylic paints, and Confetti Polish's Ice Ice Baby as a glitter topcoat.

I was gonna have pink butterflies just like on the shirt, but I wanted to keep the manicure dark :P

Sooo how do you like it? It looked a bit bare, so I added the glitter (which I like :) My posting is so irregular, sorry (gotta love school)! But I'm on twitter pretty consistently, so you can always find me there @BookwormNails

Essie Power Clutch/ Princess Tiara Nail Art


I know it's been a bit, sorry! Buuut I do have some pics for you today :D Today is Essie's Power Clutch from their Fall 2011 Brand New Bag collection, and a little bit of nail art I did. I like doing nail art on the ring finger haha, as you might've seen...

Power Clutch is a slate grey, like a chalkboard! No blue tinge to it though, it's a true grey.

And then I spruced it up with a little white princess tiara with a pink pearl jewel. 

Like it? I don't really know why I wanted to do a princess tiara haha, just seemed cute. My nails are so short now! Like I said on twitter, I kept scratching myself so I had to file them down.
