FALL 2014 SUPER BLACK LACQUER COLLECTION

The new Fall 2014 Super Black Lacquer is out!


I'm OBSESSED with these colors! The navy blue and gold are perfect for the Holidays.


Look #1 features "BOSS LADY" and "Fall Back", french manicure was done with no nail vinyls, just lots and lots of patience! 

Look #2 is a chevron design using "BOSS LADY" and "Fall Back" again. Can you tell these two were my favorite in the collection? Chevron was done using nail vinyls from Hex Nail Jewelry

 This is a gorgeous shimmering purple! "Bruiser" is a gorgeous metallic purple with tints of blue in it. 

"The Perfectionist" is a gorgeous taupe iridescent pearl, so elegant!

I had a swatch of "Semi Automatic" and I accidentally deleted it :( But here is a swatch of all five polishes from the collection!

These Super Black Lacquer beauties can be purchased at www.SuperBlackLacquers.com

GOLD MIRROR NAILS

I had searched far and wide on the internet for mirrored false nails and couldn't find a reliable source so I had given up. Last week I go to my local Dollar Tree to get fake flowers and LO AND BEHOLD I FOUND THESE BEAUTIES: Metallic gold false tips so shiny you can use them as a mirror (seriously though you can see my phone case in every single picture). 


They were sold out in silver but I got one in gold and pink. I went back yesterday to buy more but they were sold out :( Once I find them again I'll be doing a flash giveaway!

This is what they looked like when I bought them. They were really long so once I applied them to my nail I filed them down to the same size as my natural nails.


Steps to apply false tips:
And you're finished!

LATE POST - HALLOWEEN NAILS AND COSTUMES

I know Halloween was almost two weeks ago but I have to post my last Halloween nail looks! I promise I'll get back to the swing of things. Life has been so crazy busy lately.

Since my favorite Holiday is over (but it's okay, because Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years, and my Birthday is next!), I won't go into too much details. If you have any questions feel free to ask in the comments!

Skeleton Nails 

Products Used:
Spiderweb and bloody gold and black nails

SPOOKY GRAVEYARD NAILS

Products Used:

  • Purple is Salon Perfect "A Royal Affair" available at Walmart
  • Gray is OPI's "Nein! Nein! Nein! Ok Fine!"
  • Silver tree, grave, skeleton, and house were done using Bundle Monster stamps
  • Bat charm is from Daily Charme
  • Black is OPI's "Black Onyx"

I always do my gradients over white unless I'm using two light colors. I find the colors come out more vibrant.

Make sure to check out Daily Charme for super cute charms! Their Halloween charms are so amazing and unique.

How to place the nail charms:
I put a dot where I'm going to place a charm then once the glue has dried a few seconds to where it's tacky I place the charm and add glue around it and once the glue dries I put top coat around it. That almost always makes the charm stay in place to the point where I pretty much have to pry it off my nail (It doesn't damage your nail as long as you have polish as a layer between the glue and your nail).

Here are just a few of their new Halloween nail charms!

BLOOD DRIP GLOW IN THE DARK HALLOWEEN NAILS!


Products Used:
China Glaze's "Ghoulish Glow"  from HB Beauty Bar REALLY glows. The picture above doesn't do the glow justice. And that isn't using a black light, I just put it up against my desk lamp and turned off the lights and that's how bright it was. 

Use my code "MODNAILS" at checkout when you're shopping on HB Beauty Bar for 15% off! 

The blood drip vinyls from Hex Nail Jewelry are so easy to use! You can either just stick them on your nails or use them as a guide and paint over them. 

Here's a quick 15-second tutorial from my Instagram:
