Live Love Polish Calico

Hey everyone! Hope you had a great long weekend. It was nice having the extra day to hang out and I took some time to do something fun on my nails.

I remember trying magnetic polish last year and loving it so I pulled out Calico from Live Love Polish. Calico is a magnetic multichrome polish that shifts pink, orange, gold and green. Any of these magnetic polishes from Live Love Polish would be gorgeous, plus they come with the magnetic wand.

To start this look I applied one coat of a black creme polish. You can use any black you have, just know the magnetic effect of the polish works much better over dark colors. To add some sparkle, I then applied one coat of ILNP Party Bus. I thought this black holo would be perfect underneath to add some depth. The last step was one coat of Calico and immediately holding the magnet above the nail for about 20-30 seconds. I did this one nail at a time. I love how these look!

Have a great week!

ILNP Cityscape & Interstellar

Hey everyone! How was your weekend? If you watched the Super Bowl, were you tuning in for the game, the commercials, the half time show, are all of the above? I'm not really into football, so I like to watch the commercials and the half time show. I thought Shakira and J. Lo were amazing! We also made some yummy snacks, with the highlight being delicious skillet nachos. I'll have to start brainstorming some snack ideas for the Oscars next week.

I felt like wearing some holographic nail polish today, so of course I went for ILNP, which makes some of my favorite holos. I also wanted to use my constellation stamping plate, so I thought Cityscape and Interstellar would be two great colors to go with that design. Cityscape is a holographic black and Interstellar shifts from navy to teal to purple with gorgeous holographic shimmer. I used a stamping plate from Born Pretty Store (can't find the link for the exact one but I'm sure they have similar designs) and white polish to stamp constellations and stars over Interstellar.

Hope you have a great week!
