Hello, again! I went through some of my manis from 2012 and I thought I'd share some of them with you now.
Ready for lots of pictures? I'm splitting this up in to two parts because there were quite a few pictures and I didn't want to overload you all in one sitting.
Orly Snowcone with KleanColor Blue Holo as an accent. I waited a long time to get Snowcone and I have no idea why. It's super pigmented and *bonus*, it doesn't stain! A big thank you to Nailstah for the KleanColor way back in 2011.
Zoya Evvy (dark green-grey creme) and Zoya Quinn (deep berry). The contrast of these colors was really great IRL...couldn't exactly capture it in pictures.
Zoya Bevin (mint) and Zoya Kristen (blue-based grey) with a little NYC Love Letters for some sparkle.
Color Club Revvvolution (black holo), Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Orange Crush, black striping polish and a bit of silver holo glitter to give it some pow. Obviously, this was a Halloween mani. I was feeling kind of uninspired for Halloween this year.
Milani Violet Dash (purple creme) and Milani Jewel FX Lavender as a glitter gradient. I wore this for the first annual Southwest SparkleCon 2012 as organized by Makeup Zombie. SO much fun meeting some new sparkle friends!!
A plastic wrap mani using a pale pink (I haven't a clue what it was) and China Glaze Designer Satin. Super easy mani with maximum bang for your buck. I loved this one!
And last, but definitely not least, a really pretty water marble using Zoya Anja (purple) and Zoya Midori (green). This is the first marble I'd done in a while and I was happy how it turned out. I really like how some of the green faded in to the purple.
I don't usually post makeup pictures but I wanted to share this one. I did this as my look for a derby bout in October. This is Fyrinnae Velvet Vampire (red) and Raven's Prophecy (black). This look took me FOREVER but it turned out just like I wanted it and it was so pretty with gorgeous sparkle (that I couldn't capture).
