Nail Art: Old Navy dress WITH POCKETS

Oh gosh, this was supposed to be posted last month. I've been really stressed out lately and haven't had time to sit and write blog posts. Thank you all so much for bearing with me! I'll end off this month with some nail art, and then I'm sitting on some nice swatches and a couple more nail art ideas to round out the summer. I hope you guys are having lots of beach time!


I'm coming to realize I make it sound like I impulse buy a lot. I want to assure everybody that I plan out my impulse purchases so they are spread out and manageable. I am a responsible adult.

I ordered ILNP Mega (S) and needed some nail art over it to match this really comfortable new dress I got from Old Navy. Also I wanted to torture myself with striping tape.

Three coats Mega, then design using Cult Nails Time Traveler.

It matched the dress pretty well.

And it came with POCKETS.

The holo on Mega is lovely!

And sunshine!

I love holos!

Swatch: Cult Nails Time Traveler

One of our last purchases together before this blog became a single authorship endeavor was the Cult Nails Clearance and I am really happy I got this beauty. I have one dark blue in Julep Marisa and the tiny bottle is actually running low and I wanted a nice replacement.


It's a beautiful rich blue! If you're a Dr. Who fan you get the reference. I am not a Doctor Who fan so just enjoy the Tardis Blue and I hope you have yourself a good one ;D

Did anybody get some goodies from Cult Nails before they shut down?

Swatch: ILNP Cutie Pop

PINK. Believe it or not, pink is actually a big hole in my nail polish collection. I don't really like it usually. Despite this, ILNP Cutie Pop is SPECIAL and I wanted it as soon as I saw it. Unfortunately my camera and lighting didn't really like it. In person it is much closer to the website's photos of it.

Anyway, this is three coats.

It looked great in all lights, and in the sunshine the holo really exploded <3

Swatch: ILNP Princeton

Finally getting some posts together! This summer is kicking my ass so far and my birthday is coming up but so is a big presentation that I have to write a paper for (TODAY- let's hope I get it done?)

This swatch is from a couple weeks ago and it is from that nice big ILNP order I made (recently, I'm trying to convince myself because I want another one now... SIGH.).

This is ILNP Princeton, three coats.

The formula was really nice. The holo isn't that strong but it's not subtle either. This is a nice gentle green that will make you feel cool, which you might really need given this terrible heat wave bent on cooking us all.

ILNP just released a new collection on their website, and there are swatches on their facebook an bottle-porn on their instagram. Tell Barb I sent you!
