Goodbye Breaking Bad

Breaking Bad is one of those shows that's inherently awesome. Great acting, great story line, great character development. Like all good things, it must come to an end. ::sad face:: Tonight is the series finale and I have no doubt that it will be epic.

Here's my manicure dedicated to one of the best works in television I've seen in a long time! 





How I did it? 

I started off with OPI's Don't Mess with OPI from the Texas collection which is the closest green that I had that matches the Breaking Bad logo. I then painted the "Br" and "Ba" with white acrylic paint which was rather difficult because the brand I have isn't really opaque. It took a few times to get the "Bs" just right.  Luckily, you can rub off acrylic paint with a bit of rubbing alcohol and it won't disturb your base coat.

The Heisenberg sketch is also painted with black acrylic paint. It took me three times to get it just right. The green swirls are done using the needle marbling technique. I used OPI's Did it on Them for the lime green.


If you haven't watched the show, seriously start watching!  Seasons 1 - 5 are available on Netflix streaming.  You won't be disappointed! 

If you've been watching, how do you think it's all going to end? 

Are you sad that it's over?

Born Pretty Store: Colorful Feather Nail Art Water Decals Stickers

My final review from Born Pretty Store are some lovely water decals the shape of feathers.  These water decals are beautifully detailed and come in a variety of colors to make a wide array of manicures.




Here's my sample manicure I did using the feather water decals:



Basic instructions on how to apply a water decal: 
  1. Paint your base color and let dry. 
  2. Trim out nail decal.
  3. Immerse in water until the backing is wet.
  4. Using wet fingers slide decal off backing and place onto your nail. 
  5. Let dry.
  6. Seal with top coat. 
Overall, water decals are very easy to work with. If you don't like the placement, you can move the decal around a little while it's still wet. With the feather stickers, you can paint any number of designs to create any sort of unique manicure. This pack comes with enough water decals to make several different manicures. Also, the water decals can be easily removed with nail polish remover.

Colorful Feather Nail Art Water Decals Stickers are available now and retail for $4.73 USD.

Born Pretty Store Holo: #7 Swatches and Review

I have for review today a holographic polish from Born Pretty Store.  Who doesn't love holographic polishes seriously?





Artificial Light


Indirect Sun


Direct Sun 

Born Pretty Holo #7 is a light seafoam linear holo.  This was 3-coats and the color was still not opaque with a visible nail line.  This color might have benefited from layering over a similar color.  I did not have any issues with application or dry time. 

Overall, if you are looking for some good linear holographic polishes definitely give these a try.  There are 12 colors all together in this collection with a wide-array of colors.  Born Pretty Store Holographic polishes retail for $5.59 (previously $12.88) for a mini sized bottle.
