Last night was an “Austin Powers Movie-a-thon” night which inspired me to do some neat-o 60’s – 70’s nail art. The only problem is that once I got into it, I ended up with a design that wasn’t so much groovy but was a bit more psychedelic… or ionic since it looks like some abstract sort of molecular model of bonding… haha. Also, when I did the Asili review, I wanted to put up some more pictures, but I’ve been having some serious technical difficulties this week so I finally was able to get some good shots to put up.
Hello ladies and germs- today’s nail art is inspired by Pamela at Asili. She was kind enough to send along some great products for me to share with you and since her business card was so beautiful, I decided to do the design on it for my nail design today. BUT her business card is in tan and brown, and since I already did my Henna designin those colors, I decided to play with them a bit here :-)
For this manicure, I started off with one coat of Color Club’s Smooth Operator and two coats of China Glaze For Audrey. I then used OPI’s Ski Teal We Drop for the details and topped off with one coat of Color Club’s Speedy Top Coat. After I took the picture, I used Asili Lemon and Rose Cuticle Oil.
Before I get to the actual review for the cuticle oil, I just need to tell you how beautiful it is. What? Beautiful cuticle oil? Yes. It’s lemon and rose cuticle oil and it comes in a clear bottle with a dropper, but the pretty part is that in the oil, Pam has delicately suspended bright fuchsia rose petals. The design alone would make me buy this bottle of oil if I were in a store. It smells wonderfully and did I mention that it works really well to hydrate your cuticles? This is one of those products that I’m going to be desperate for when I run out.
She was also kind enough to send along samples of her Almond Body Butter and Ocean Rain Butter. When I use them, I will definitely let you know but I don’t want to waste them!
Thanks for all of your great entries into the nail art contest!!! What I’ve seen is so great and I hope you keep them comin’!!
