See Ya L8R Alli-G8R

I tried three designs today that all failed. Miserably. I then sat down and figured out what could bring me out of my rut- holographica. That’s supposed to be a joke. Holographic with the “a” to make it sound risque. :) My original nail art inspiration for this design shall remain a secret since I totally did a spin off and it looks nothing like what I was originally going to do. I’d reveal it, BUT I still want to use it in the near future! So you’ll just have to watch for it.

For this design I used a coat of OPI Natural Nail Base Coat, a coat of Wet N Wild Black Creme, and China Glaze L8R G8R for the design. I like it because its more dynamic than my other “I’m uninspired line-and-dot” designs. Topped with Seche- this is a POW design in the sun. :)

 

BY THE WAY- I don’t know if you noticed, but…. we hit 1000 followers today, you and me! I’m not giving out hints or anything, but some great things are in store to show my appreciation ;) ;) nudge nudge. Stay tuned!

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

Some of the polishes in this post were sent to me by the manufacturer. For further information, please see my disclosure statement.

A BIG Thank You!!

I was lucky enough to recently win not one, but two!! giveaways and so I just wanted to do a dedicated post to those ladies out there that hooked me up with some seriously loved goodies and to send a BIG thank you along to the kind ladies who gave away such great gifts. PS, don’t mess- I know I used a roll of paper towels in the background- I figured you’d rather see them than Rafik’s feet :-)

I won Kristina’s Green Giveaway over at My Lucid Bubble

This giveaway included some really hard to find green polishes. Included in the giveaway were Essie’s Mint Chintz, Misa’s Embroidered Emerald, Milani Hi- Tech, Orly’s Opal Hope, Brucci’s Black Emerald, Orly’s Walk Down The Aisle, Sally Hansen’s Spring Green, and Wet ‘N’ Wild Fusion. I spent the afternoon playing this a lot of these (hence no nail design or swatches, I was playing- not doing serious business!)

I also won Megan’s Sula Giveaway at Dainty Darling Digits
This giveaway was another wonderful one! It included three of Sula’s Paint and Peel polishes, a Sula Paint in Peel polish/topcoat duo, Sula’s Vanilla Perfume Oil, and (an added surprise!) Sally Hansen’s Perfect Proposal. I didn’t play with these yet (though I’m wearing the perfume!) because I wanted to do special swatches of each color for ya’ll and I didn’t want to waste their peely goodness on a less than perfect mani.
Both Megan and Kristina are wonderful ladies and I’m so lucky not only to have won their giveaways, but more so to have had the opportunity to chat with them and get to know them a teeny bit more than I did before. I already frequent their blogs and you should too! Thanks ladies!
I’ll be doing a neat-o design in the following days- my apologizes for the lack of schnazzy nail art lately- due to the less than perfect health I had recently, I got a bit behind in school and home life (work, cleaning, errands, etc) and so I haven’t had the time to sit down and really focus on a sexy design. I will though, don’t ya’ll worry.
