Sunday stamping: I am a nerd and proud to be one vs. LoL Syndra

I am doing this a bit earlier, but I am leaving soon and I still wanted to make this post because the theme is close to my heart.
I am a big nerd/g33k/dork whatever you call it. And damn proud of it. Most of my nerdiness comes from love of video games. I am not very good at them but still they bring me a lot of joy. FFS I started this blog so I could share my nail art that is inspired by the awesome LoL Champions. Currently I am wrapped in so many nail challenges that my LoL work is a bit in the background. But now it's back!

I love Syndra the Dark Sovereign for so many reasons. I love her by proxy because I believe she is Varuses GF, because her voice is simply melodic and angry just the right amount to make her a joy to play. And she is hard to play and I just love to play hard champions and make my life difficult. I love the entire design so get ready for some none - polish related pixxs :)

This post will be quite picture heavy because I love the crazy doll so much :)

I was inspired by her outfit from the Justicar skin. The gold base is Essence LE A piece of forever. To stamp I used BM12 and Catrice Copper cabana. The others have Catrice LE Soulful as base, then I made some stripes with S-he no.215 and added some Catrice LE Gold leaf top coat on the tips.

Hope you like it! I sure did and this was in my vault some time - it's my 1st stamping job :)

The design ideas for Syndra I would be happy with all of them :) All look awesome

LISC: Winter ombre

I am a bit early on this post because I am leaving for a week but I wanted to make something simple but still over the top. The nail polishes follow from pinkie to index finger: Essence I'm the boss! (2 coats), Catrice ASHley (2 coats), Essence Grey-t to be here (3 coats), Essence Sparkling water Lilly (3 coats). Then I added 3 sizes of peal like rhinestones. I simply love the look - thou it's a bit unpractical and the thingies sometimes fall off.

OUAT Challenge: Inspired by your favorite episode

My favorite episode is the Hat trick because I love the Alice in Wonderland story - particularly the Mad hatter. And in this show he is not only gorgeous but also brings an interesting twist to the show. But the best part of the episode was the Queen of Hearts and her court. I relay love the entire design of her and everything/everyone around her. I love the mystery they created around her so it could be later uncovered who she relay is.

I used Essence LE The dawn is broken for the base and made a striped look with Vollare city no.01. Only the index finger has white as base. Then I made the black furry stripes and added some glitter from Smart girls no. 119 to make it seem like the outfit from Knave of hearts.
On the others I added some black details with Essence mysterious black. The I fished out some silver hearts from my no name Bichun and some red hearts from Essence LE Sunshine and roses.
The look was inspired by the outfit from the Knave of hearts and the sleeve from the Queen.

I kindoff like the look and I think it would look even better if I had longer nails - grow dammit :)

Hope you like it :)

OUAT Challenge: The princess

I am leaving on a trip for the week so today I am posting all my posts that should have been posted during the next week.

1st part of that is completing the OUAT challenge. The princess I choose is Belle. Thou currently she is driving me crazy due to memory loss I relay like her. I am very much like her - love books and stupidly believe that there is always good in people :)

I used Catrice Shanghai as the gold base to represent her princess dress. On the pinkie the base is Catrice Copper cabana with China glaze Tarnished gold and over it all LA Girl Synergy. To make the rose stamps I used BM1 and BeautyUK Burgundy and added some green gems for the leafs. I just had to make a rose reference is not of anything else in memory of poor Gaston. I always cringe when Belle recives the rose and cuts off the stem - seem like cutting off his legs :)  Couz of that idea I added some red glitter from Smart girls no. 119 to make it seem like pretty blood.
The I made the chipped cup that is the symbol of love for Rumple. The fact that it broke in the show makes me think they wont get back together :( I used Vollare city no.01 as base and used Ruby kisses Regaled out blue for the details. I used some Essence Silver twister to make the steam coming out of the cup.

Hope you like it :)

OUAT Challenge: Mirror mirror on the wall

I love the idea in the show that the Genie is the voice of the mirror. Not only that, the Genie is a awesome character with a GLORIOUS mustache. What is there not to love here? So I decided to make this look metallic for the mirror and added some mustaches to honor the majestic fellow :) BTW do you know where he went? I read on the online blogs that Regina locked him up in the asylum, because you can read his name on the doors inside. I must say I miss him.

On my pinkie I have Catrice Back to black as base and over it Color club Diamond drops. I love how it looks like falling shards of broken glass. On the ring finger the base is China glaze Fast track and I free handed the mustache and beard with Essence Mysterious black. On the middle finger I used Catrice back to black as base then with some striping tape and Essence Silver twister I did this mirror effect. On my index finger I used Essence silver twister as base then with a make up sponge I added some Catrice Back to black for another mirror effect look.

Hope you like it I sure do :)

LISC: Winter wonderland

My nails currently are way to tiny to be a canvas for a pretty winter wonderland scene. So I made this abstract thing. Hope it still counts :)

I used Constance Carroll Ebony as the black base. Then I used Catrice LE Sky and snow to give it the purple and blue shimmer. Over it I put Essence Cool breeze. And over all that Depend no.335 for some small sliver glitter. Yeah a big pile of polish over here :) And then I added a few teardrop rhinestones. I like it even thou I currently hate my shorty nails *grow you short bastards damn you* :)

Just realised how fitting this Catrice bottle is for the challenge :)

OUAT: Magic comes with a price

I wanted to make a mani that looks like the purple smoke that is the most common form of magic in the show.
I used Catrice Dance in Gion as base, then I was adding all the other purples just like as if I was making a galaxy mani. So I added Catrice Forget-me-not, no name Bicun, Barry M Multi glitter and Indigo, Essence Elves like lilac. The top coat is Depend no.280 that has dark purple and silver glitters.

Hope you like it I sure did so this post will be a bit picture heavy :)
