Be an Artist

Quick Nail Look I had done for St. Patricks day

 The other week I came across a sale on the L.A. Colors Art Deco nail art lacquers, I already had a nice sunflower yellow color and a rich forest green so i grabbed what colors they had left.  The colors are so bad I just wish hey had a little more selection but hey it was a sale. The colors could be more opaque but they price norammly is not bad and wont kill you if your on a budget like me. The brushes are nice and long and good if your are you starting out and want to test out a few designs.

Sometimes i feel like thier a little too thick and hard to work with and the polish its self a little too thin for my liking but Im still happy when i use them. I do like them for when i make my nail tips a different color.

hard candy- Beetle

one coat

I found this color and had to have it! Its a nice gold, copper, shimmery glitter polish from hard candy. Its almost holographic. Its too bad you can only get hard candy polishes at walmart cause I dont go there too often and they had some other colors id love to try.

two coats

The color its self reminded me of space cadet by orly. But thats why I got it (and it came with a cute ring). Its just really pretty and has a nice application I find the polish a little thin but it still has nice coverage and it looked pretty with one coat. Although I opted for two to try to get the full effect. The shimmer is very fine and is mostly a copper with gold, but it does have some greenish and purple too it. The camera makes the color look more purple instead of copper. Over all Im very happy with this color.
