Happy St. Patrick's Day Nails!!

Happy (early) St. Patrick's Day!! So I love this date for many, many reasons, but mostly, I just love green and I love anything related to shamrocks/four-leaf clovers. Put them all together and you get my favourite day, so of course I had to do some really special nail art to celebrate!!

Swatching Sticks: Can You Paint With all the Colours of Nail Polish??

Remember how I had mentioned that I got some swatching sticks online and finally got around to going through my whole polish collection?? Well, behold all the colours of the polish!! This is my entire nail polish collection through colours. There's 125 of them. And boy was that 100 more than I even thought I would have, haha. But they're all so pretty!!

For those who don't already have this, I REALLY recommend buying swatching sticks (I got mine from E-bay, 50 for $2.50, I had to buy 3) or even making your own like Very Emily did. I tried this first but I like the little metal rod you can keep them in.

They're great to see how the polish looks like on the nail, to compare dupes, not to mention, if really helps when you're trying to decide which colours work together. Plus it's a nice and nifty way to keep track of all your polishes. Yes, it does take a while to swatch all of them. I went through a few Community Seasons while I was doing mine, waiting for them to dry and then writing the brand and name with a projector pen. So worth it in the end though!!

The camera didn't manage to capture the colours 100% correct, but you can get a glimpse of the range between them, so I figured it worked pretty well this way too. Alright, let's take a look, shall we??

Whites: Clearly not my strongest colour base, but then again, how many whites does one need?

Simple Floral Stamp and Glitter

Hey look, an actual post!! I promised they were slowing going to start coming and here they are. I think I mentioned in my previous post how I got some nail mail recently and among them was my new SUPER SQUISHY stamper! I've dubbed it the SS stamper because that's what it is and it works wonderfully!!
