OPI Spiderman Collection

Okay, most of you know how I feel about press releases...I don't really care for them, hah!  I figure that every other blog will have upcoming collections for you to read about and whatnot...

And I guess this isn't an official press release, BUT the nerd in me wants to show you guys the upcoming SPIDERMAN collection from OPI!  It's due out sometime in May:

I'm most excited for Just Spotted the Lizard 'cause it looks like a sweet duochrome!  Number One Nemesis may also be cool, but I'd have to see some swatches first!  The collection is also coming with a dark green shatter!!

Do you think someone would let me have this display? Hahaha

Apparently this news is a few weeks old, but this is the first I've heard of it!  A friend of mine posted another pic on Facebook that she found on Tumblr, but I'm not sure where it came from so I'm going to link it instead of posting it here, but it shows the colors swatched on a nail wheel.  Check it out here.  I like the texture of the crackle!  I know some people are tired of it, but I still like them.

Are you guys going to get any of these polishes?  Or see the new movie coming out in July??!

Nail Art Contest Entry!

Hello pretties! 

Today I have some nail art to show you for a contest I'm entering on Chalkboard Nails!

I told my boyfriend there was a contest online where you had to make nail art using only a dotting tool (then I had to tell him what a dotting tool was...), and he designed it for me!

He said that when I hold my hands for pictures it reminds him of an alien or some sort of creature (sweet, isn't he? lol), and that I should do an alien!

So here it is, designed by my boyfriend and painted by me:

For this art I used Funky Fingers Ectoplasmic for the green background and hands, China Glaze Flying Dragon for the purple spots, Funky Finger Tribal for accents on the fingers, and just a white and black cream for the eye.  I used a couple different sized dotting tools for the details.

Overall, it looks pretty much exactly like the picture my boyfriend drew for me, so he was quite happy about it :)

Hope you all are having a great weekend!  The doc gave me permission to go back to work on Monday, so that's good!  Don't forget to check out my Etsy shop where I'm selling my frankens!

Nail-Venturous VooDoo Doll!

I've got a pretty one to show you guys today made by my friend Amy at I'm Feeling Nail-Venturous!

It's called VooDoo Doll!

Ahhh I love it!  There is something about black and white together that I just love.  This polish has a black base with large and medium white hex glitter and small silver glitter.  I can't get enough of it!  This is shown with 3 coats. 

Amy is currently not selling her frankens right now, but may open an Etsy shop in the future.  Regardless you should check out her blog, she's really great!

Have you guys made any frankens lately?
