NOTD;; Neon Diamonds ♥♥

Hey everyone!

Today I'm coming at you with a nail look that I started off not really liking, but then after going just a little further with it, I ended up loving. Isn't it fun? I'm really loving yellow lately, it's just so intense and fun to look at on my nails. What's more, when combined with green and purple, you get a smorgasbord of amazing-ness that is just too much fun!

Fun With Acrylics;; Pointed Nails! ♥♥

Hey everyone!

Yesterday I did two sets of pointed acrylics on two of my friends, Jocelyn and Brian. It was so cool, because Jocelyn was inspired by Lana Del Ray, and Brian was more inspired by alternative culture, but they both came to me on the same day to get the same thing! 

Here are a couple shots from the day...

Jocelyn's Nails

Acrylics are admittedly not something I've had a ton of practice with, but yesterday definitely gave me some time to play and get better. Maybe I'll just start playing up the niche market of pointed nails, they're totally fun to do!

Thanks for tuning in, and until next time, stay polished!

Much love,
Dylan ♥♥

It's Swatchtastic;; China Glaze Tranzitions in Shape Shifter! ♥♥

We've heard of colour changing polishes and duochromes before, but China Glaze has put something on the market that has something a little different to offer!

China Glaze Tranzitions polishes apply as one colour, but when you put on topcoat, it changes to a different one! I had a lot of fun playing with the one I bought. Click on to see my little experiments!

NOTD;; Gagatonic! ♥♥

Hey everyone!

Yesterday I went to the Born This Way Ball in Toronto, and I had the time of my life! It was my second time seeing Lady Gaga, and both times it was SO. AMAZING. As a testament to Mother Monster, I did these show-stopping nails for the concert! Check em out...

It's not often I do yellow nails, since they stain like crazy, especially this one because of its ridiculous awesomeness, but it was worth it!

NOTD;; Silver Streak ♥♥

Hey all!

Today I'm bringing to you a play on texture. I wasn't so sure about this look to begin with, but the finishing touches really brought it all together. Check it out!

I almost didn't like this look, until I added the glitter on top. Everything's better with a dash of glitter!
