Assassin's Creed: Black Flag

Hi pretties! Time for another easy mani.

This wasn't supposed to be an easy mani. As I mentioned in this post, we went to a gaming exhibition last weekend so I really wanted to do an Assassin's Creed: Black Flag mani for the occassion. Because I had next to no time at all, I decided to just paint the logo on my thumb and add some Kiss studs since I hadn't done any mani's with studs recently.
This logo:

Pretty cool, huh? But, there came a moment when the studs were sticking, polish was drying and I realised I was running out of time for the thumbs. Luckily, I remembered this post by Varnished Valkyrie and realised I hadn't used my Nails Inc skulls yet!


So it turned into a bit of a bad ass rock mani rather than a Assassin's Creed-specific mani.
But I tell you, these skulls are great. You can't really tell from the pictures but there are nine Swarovski crystals in the 'forehead' part of the skull. So glam!



I used: nailgirls white #1, Essie Licorice, Nails Inc skull, Kiss studs

Urban Decay Woodstock

Ladies and gentlemen; meet Urban Decay Woodstock.

Woodstock, you hurt my eyes with your prettiness <3

I can not believe I have had this polish for just under three years and never, ever worn it before. I was shocked at how neon it was! I just had to show it to you.

You may or may not remember me using the OPI neon mini's for my neon water marble and the cracked neon skittle. If you're not familiar with those, you apply a white base, then two coats of the neon polish and then a top coat.

I was going to do a pink water marble for the first prompt of the new Valentine Nail Art Challenge hosted by datyorkLOVES (more about that later today =D) and decided to use this as a base. I was just blown away by it! You guys, this is one coat. One coat. No white base, no top coat.

Woodstock was part of Urban Decay Summer of Love mini kit which was released in Spring 2010. I'm real bummed now that it's a mini as I can see myself wearing this all the time come summer =D

Have you ever been real surprised by an untried? Have you ever had an untried this long?

Be sure to check back later for the Valentine Challenge =)
