So much makeup. Such little student finance. A fight against the draconian makeup policies of a Catholic school. (2013)

This is my second franken. I should have written down a recipe but I literally took an old, empty w7 nail polish bottle (base coat with ginseng) and added some blue nail art glitter, some green nail art glitter (from the nail art pens from Hong Kong, I never use the glitters) a relatively sheer Sally Hansen Diamond Hard (some of it, not a lot) and some Barry M in Raspberry and a whole lot more. The result was meh. I really wanted a duochrome but I don't/didn't really know how to go about making one of those and the Internet, for once, was no help. If anyone has any tips, please share! :) This is what it looks like though:
Like I said, if anyone could give me pointers as so making a duochrome - much appreciated. Thanks!
My school's production of Les Mis ended a week ago and since I was involved (playing the violin in the orchestra, it was great fun!) I went to the afterparty at the boy who plays Marius's house yesterday :P Was great fun, but this is how my nails looked like:
Little late, I know, but here's my offering:
Managed to obtain another Nails Inc polish today! It's named Sloane Mews and looks very white in the bottle but once on the nail it was very sheer. Like, really sheer. It took another coat for a passer by to notice, though it was very school appropriate - noticeable, but not. Perfect for Mondays.
The nail polish blogging community have definately been busy! There are lots more giveaways, which means way more prizes up for grabs!
The lovely Lyra from the Nail Junkie, who is hosting her first giveaway. Boy, is she generous! There is a TONNE (not kidding) of nail polish, lip glosses, stickers and creams...you name it, she's got it!
It all looks so impressive :)
Also, there is painted Lady fingers, who is giving away a nice set of Konad plates (eight, to be exact).
We have Inside of My purse, who has very kindly opened up her giveaway to international followers! She's celebrating 250 followers and has been hella generous - take a look at this booty.
Body and Soul are literally always doing giveways (generous people....) and I've just discovered this mahooosive HAUL of green nail polish to celebrate St Patrick's Day...I think I just drooled all over my monitor...:P
Chromatic Misadventures is giving away TEN nail polishes. Yeah man. Ten. She's celebrating her 100 follower giveaway (it's her first as well!) She's got loads to choose from so give it a look - but it's ending tomorrow (the 15th of March, Monday) so get a wriggle on :)
I have such a backlog of nails that I've done! I haven't managed to upload them this week because of the school play (I'm playing in the orchestra). We're doing Les Mis, it's great fun :)
I did a sheer glitter nail polish by Rimmel, then drew a cherry on all the fingers. Pictures!
