Dr.’s Remedy Summer 2011

I’m not the best with swatching since I usually get impatient and want to do a design, so of course I did a skittle version for you of the new Dr.’s Remedy Summer Collection! The colors were WOW and I can’t wait to do a design with them- really!!!

Thumb: NURTURE Nude Pink, Index Finger: LOVELY Lavender, Middle: GLEE Gold, Ring: BOLD Baby Blue, Pinkie: TRANQUIL Tangerine

I loved all of these shades but they surprised me. In the bottle I thought I’d like Tranquil Tangerine the most and while I do love it, I loved LOVELY Lavender on the nail the best. And I’m not big on purple so that’s saying something! All of these were two coats. The formula was very smooth and application went well. The only downside is that they take a bit to dry without a fast dry topcoat- but we all use one of those, don’t we!

The blue, gold and tangerine were metallics, the lavender is a creme, and the nude is a creme with a light pink shimmer, which is truly lovely. They’ll be great for my nail art and for you to wear on their own!!! Dr.’s Remedy is known for being b3f and for being vitamin and protein enriched!

 

 

Summer In The City

I’m loving Atlanta. I’m also loving that the temperature is 92 everyday and we have at LEAST 7 pools in our complex. You already saw pictures of my favorite one a few posts back. Life has been really busy but today, I deserve it, I’m visiting the pool. Today’s design is inspired by a beach towel that I came across by accident online….

For this design I started with OPI Natural Nail Base coat and used (all OPI) That’s Hot! Pink, Greenwich Village, Quarter of A Cent-ury, The IT Color, Dating A Royal, Suzi Says Feng Shui, Sparrow Me The Drama, Planks A Lot, Chop-Sticking To My Story, and Gargantuan Green Grape all on a base of Alpine Snow. Topped with Seche Vite and I’m ready to hit the rays. :)

 

Happy Summer :) I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am!!!

Jelly Fish Jam

I am going to fess up to something. I love spongebob. I know, I know- I’m a grown adult, but still, Spongebob is awesome and the jokes go right over some kids’ heads! My baby sister loves Spongebob too- especially the Jelly Fish Jam (have to say it’s my favorite, myself). So, when Rafik and I went on an adventure to the Georgia Aquarium this weekend, I was beside myself to see the gorgeous jellyfish on an amazingly stunning cobalt blue background. Needless to say, Rafik took a million pictures and now you have a jellyfish design to look at! By the way, congratulations on getting to my new website domain!

 

And here’s the inspiration image- a GORGEOUS shot that Rafik captured on his phone:

For this design I started with OPI Nail Envy, then two coats of Revlon Fast Dry in Royal (its my favorite blue- and it DOES NOT STAIN!!!!) and a mix of Wet N Wild Sunny Side Up, Milani Neon Awesome Orange, and OPI Big Hair… Big Nails for the oranges. I also layered some OPI Cabana Banana underneath the body for some pow. Some OPI Alpine Snow to outline and finally I topped off with a coat of Seche Vite and voila! Jellyfish!!!

I’m still working on the design of my new website so please bear with me but it’ll be done soon! <3 Tara The Terror
