Kitteh!! That is incredible! Best galaxy mani I've seen (and I'm a big fan of the galaxy mani!)

geh! I think we wont get them till Sept either. ::Cry::

Nice Kitteh! Mine are neon Skittles with wavy neon Chevrons for accent nail right now.
I havent tried a Galaxy nail set yet. But I want to lol. That may be next mani this weekend :D

As far as plates... I have found an AWESOME set of plates with some super Super intriguing images, but have no idea of the "brand". I have found them on the AliExpress site and can get them for less than a buck a plate... but am really wanting to make sure I get the whole set. Has anyone thought about getting together a Group Buy on any of the wholesale sites for plates??

Thanks x 100000, you're all so nice :) I plan on adding top coat every day to make it last as long as possible.

I found a great tute yesterday and couldn't get the idea out of my head and I knew I wanted it to look like the cover of that book so that gave me the inspiration for the colours. I thought it was going to turn out crapola but I'm really pleased with it, especially as it really did take a while but in the end it was worth it. I want to try it with other colours now. If you're keen to try it, check out the tute, there are heaps of photos and it was a lot simpler than I thought it would be.

Also, I've mentioned vegan/cruelty free polish in a couple of vlogs I've done and I've gotten some great responses from people who didn't even consider that their polish might have been tested on animals, so hopefully I've made a few people stop and think about the brands they buy - yay vegan nail polish!

I have been talking about Cruelty free stuff for a while and a lot of my extended family members are starting to really pay attention, and with always ensuring I check darn near everything I buy at the store, my son and daughter are VERY aware, and are getting their friends aware as well. My son's best friend's mom is changing to CF polishes. I am so happy people are asking questions...

OK my fingers are a bit crepe, I need to practice my french like mad so I had a go on myself. My right hand is not as bad as I thought it would be and I think I did ok, but I didn't clean up any of the smile lines which I would normally so my pinky is a bit wonky. I left my bling finger on as it hasn't chipped or anything but it looks a bit funny! hahah.

Baps, both your mani and pedi look great!

I'm switching my polish over to our other bathroom so I bought new containers and spent the arvo swatching and reorganising

Nice! I need to organise my stash badly. The second drawer of my bedside table is full and it's a nightmare trying to find anything in it. I've organised my make up stash, nail polish is next I guess!

The first wave of ORLY glam FX polishes have hit the clearance bins at Sally's! They're still $6, but they already didn't have a lot so I didn't want to wait.

Also they still cannot give away the Dark Shadows polishes.

Here's something I'll be emailing about once it hits: http://mamasarollingstone.com/jin-soon-choi-nail-polish/

Although, I'm getting into the CND shellac and layering. I'm going to try one coat of romantique over gotcha over cocoa. If it turns out, I'll try to take a picture. I'm still trying to get that perfect light pink that has become my white whale (vegan?).

(Pictures in bright sunlight; color is just a pinch dustier.) Pretty darn close to what I want! I hope this lasts better than the last one. The place that used Gelish base and top coat lasted two weeks, but this place started to lift around the cuticles after a week. I did some intense house work though, and I did put a hole in one of my rubber gloves, so water leaked in a bit. I'm going to double bag it this week!

First attempt at Galaxy nails.

Googled tons of Nebula images before I did it to get an idea of the colors and shapes. Didnt want to use a flat out tutorial, because I wanted something totally my own lol... but I got the ideas from that tute you posted, Kitteh!

my son walked by the table while I was doing them and just stopped, staring because I actually had about 40 bottles of polish sitting on the table with a little piece of sponge next to each one. He asked, "is it really necessary to have THAT Many bottles out?" I cracked up and replied of course! lol

Using mostly WnW, China Glaze, Orly ... no idea how many actually went into it but here they are!

so pretty! i love all of these ambitious projects!

i STILL don't have my zoya remove (plus all the new colors that i'm actually excited about/waiting for), so i emailed them to ask... apparently it's on backorder (sigh), so it won't be shipped until probably the end of the month.

Thanks, kitteh! I know it's just pink, but I have a weird obsession with getting just the right shade. Then in fall I'll switch to a burgundies, purples, reds and be obsessed with getting the right shade.

My toes are naked, and I feel weird! I'm going to the beach on Friday and Saturday though, so I can't be bothered.

Gaia: that is a super fun green! I think if I did a pedi in that, I'd just sit and stare at my toes.

Raila: that is seriously amazing. So incredibly beautiful.

I need to redo my mani and I can't decide what to wear! Last 3 were purple (BL Brummie), neon green (BL Squatter) and currently neon pink (BL Cake Hole). Tell me what to do, o lacquer lovers!

Zoya Jem with a layer of China Glaze gold fleck (from the Hunger Games series) over it for my pedi. Then I was bored and just did a quick coat of the gold glitter on my nails...
