Sorry for the hiatus! Rathy and I had to put Petite on hold for a little bit to catch up in our personal lives. We’re hoping to start posting more regularly again. :-) Thank you for bearing with us!
Here is a simple nail art look inspired by the Scentbird product! :-)
Scentbird recently sent us a complimentary perfume from their perfume subscription service. For $14.95 a month, Scentbird sends a packaged sample of perfume of your choosing or one recommended by their system. The size is perfect travel size (though I’m not positive if it’s under 3 fl oz, the packaging seems about the same size as some of my travel-sized shampoo containers and those are under 3 fl oz.) It’s an interesting idea for those that want to try new scents without having to buy the whole bottle. Personally I really like the perfume bottle designs, sometimes that might be the only reason I get a bottle of perfume :x
This is the second look of our wedding nail art set for Julep!
When I think of something new, I think of something that is more bold and non-traditional for a wedding manicure. I came across a really classy modern wedding cake and it reminded me of just that. I decided to recreate design as a manicure.
I painted each layer of the cake design on a different nail using a black, white, and gold color scheme. On my thumb is a hand-painted gold rose/floral pattern on white, on my index and pinky fingers is a black lattice pattern accented by a gold dot, a simple gold dotticure on my middle finger, and a single gold rose over white on my ring finger. This a little louder than the delicate look Rathy created for Something Old, but if you’re feeling like trying something new, maybe this is the look for you. :-)
Today I will be showing you guys how to do a simple gold and black tape mani, playing with matte and shiny finishes.
All polishes used in this tutorial were provided by the wonderful Live Love Polish. They’re currently having a Black Friday sale from now until Monday Dec 1st. Don’t miss out! Today’s tutorial features LVX Alchemy. This is a gorgeous high-shine gold jam packed with shimmer.
The swatches below are taken under direct light so you can see it’s beauty. *_*. The formula is excellent, fully opaque after 2 coats with a top coat. (Top coat is really optional for this polish).
With Halloween just around the corner I decided to paint Jack Skellington from Tim Burton’s Nightmare Before Christmas last weekend. Finally had some time this weekend to pull the photos off my camera to post.
He glows in the dark using Julep Casper layered over a coat of white nail polish. The glow looks better the longer you let it charge under the light. It’s been kind of funny going to bed these last few nights and seeing the skeleton and the moon glow on my nails. Unfortunately I didn’t capture a really good photo of the glow before I chipped these. Maybe next time, I will have a black light ready! In the meantime, you’ll just have to imagine a yellow-y light green glow.
