Hey guys! Today I have a very pretty combo for you all to see! The base color, a bright blue (hardly needed 2 coats!) called Cyclades Blue by Mavala, a Swiss brand of nail polish that I received from my birthday swap with my friend Elodie from Accropolish! I just love it, don’t you? It’s so vivid! Since I just got Revlon Blue Mosaic in my haul from Las Vegas, I decided to layer it. I think it looks so pretty! What do you think?
Halloween is closely approaching, so I thought it would be cool to make a tutorial that would go along with a Zombie themed costume (because can you really imagine a zombie with neon pink nails? hahaha!). I wanted these nails to look bruised, dulled, and bloody. To achieve that look, I used yellow, gray, purple, green, and red nail polishes. I definitely suggest you to use what you have! This is a very easy method and is completely unique! I left any sponged-on polish residue on my fingers, because it just enhances the dirtiness of a zombie who likely just crawled out of the grave on Halloween!
Enjoy the tutorial! And what are you all being for Halloween?
Since I was in New York this past weekend, I decided to post this swatch! I was in NYC for an event, and in a goody bag I got was this polish! How cute is that? OPI Big Apple Red is a perfect color for such an occasion 😉
I think it’d be nice to share a few photos from this trip, so here are a few shots!

I’ve always wanted to franken my own polishes, but just haven’t had proper materials. Luckily, I had an empty Zoya bottle and an idea. I just bought some bottles off Amazon as well, so post some franken ideas for me in the comments!
I don’t have a particular “recipe” for this polish- I basically started off by pouring in every glitter polish I own into the bottle and then topped it off with OPI Onyx for the black. I was inspired by Lacquered, Painted, Polished!
Some of the glitter used: Revlon Facets of Fuchsia, Revlon Blue Mosaic, Revlon Galaxy, OPI Sparklicious, China Glaze Glam, China Glaze It’s Alive, ULTA Pinata yada yada, Wet n Wild Party of 5 Glitters, etc. I just used every single one I could find.
Hope you like it!
