Celebrating the Year of the Blogger!
"This year it's all about you and celebrating what you do!" - piCture pOlish

Greetings, lovelies!

I'm back and with a very exciting post.

Slightly over a month ago, I heeded piCture pOlish's call for bloggers to participate in this year's piCture pOlish Blog Fest. piCture pOlish is a Australian nail polish company founded and helmed by 2 Australian girls that produces fast forward colours and unique finishes. The challenge is to create our "most amazing nail art ever" and include a tutorial, using the 3 piCture pOlish shades we were provided. And here's what's at stake:

1) All nail art creations go into the running to be chosen to create a collaboration shade with piCture pOlish launching in 2014.
2) There are (only) 3 awards that will be voted and chosen as follows via piCture pOlish:
    ♥ 1 x award - as voted by PP friends and fans
    ♥ 1 x award - as voted by all participants of Blog Fest 2013
    ♥ 1 x award - as voted by Jules & Meg of piCture pOlish

So, please head on to the Pinterest link view all the creations and to VOTE after reading this (or any other participant's post). It'll mean a lot to us

The Shades
The  shades I received are:
♥ Atomic (a collaboration shade with blogger Sarah of Samarium's Swatches), "a silver/ white metallic holo (scattered) that has NO glitter. Atomic contains a holographic shimmer to create a magical shade, complex with a lot going on."
Watermelon, a bright juicy pink with subtle shimmer.
Tiffany, a blue mint creme.
piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Shades

The Inspiration
When I looked at the shades, especially Watermelon and Tiffany, candy pops to mind! And I was taken back to the time I was WOWed by the décor by a candy retailer, Candylicious at Resort World Sentosa here in Singapore.
The cheerful candy shades bring instantly brings smiles.
The Inspiration: Candylicious

The Manicure
Here's what I came up with:
piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The ManicureWhile the dotted candies are a direct intepretation of Candylicious' décor, the tree and backdrop were more Asian-inspired, leaning towards a wintry Japanese Sakura (cherry blossom) tree. I was trying to achieve a fusion feel.

The Tools
In addition to the polishes provided, we were allowed to use certain tools to create our designs. *heaved sigh of relief*
My 'weapons' of choice:
piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tools
The dotting tools are essential for creating circles of various sizes to depict the candies. Overall, 4 sizes are needed for this design.
The orange woodstick (this one's a mini-sized) serves a few purposes - the angled tip for dab on the tree trunk, and the sharp end for very fine dotting and sugar-spinning. You could paint the trunk with a paint or nail art brush too. They're just not too friendly with (for) me yet.

The Tutorial
A step-by-step guide on how I created the look. It's my first time creating a tutorial, so please go easy. *wide grin* (Grab a beverage and snack, this could be a while):
piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_11) The Base
Prep the nails. Apply basecoat, then 2 coats of Atomic, and apply topcoat. We will not be finishing the completed manicure with topcoat to retain the textured 3D effect.
On my index finger, I use a black creme polish on 1/3 of the nail in a gradient effect, but stopped at that as I felt it was too dark.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_22) The Trunk
Coat the flat angular side of the orange woodstick with Watermelon and dab gently from top to bottom in 2 - 3 motions. It doesn't have to be straight. Irregularity is more desirable to look like a tree trunk.
You could also use a paintbrush or nail art brush if it works better for you.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_33) The Branches
Grab a non-porous surface material to act as a palette for the polishes (or an actual palette would be ideal). Here, I'm using an old ziplock plastic bag.
Drop a blob of the polish onto the surface and wait about 3 - 5 minutes, or until the polish is semi-dry.
Try to pick the polish up with the woodstick (or toothpick will work too). If it forms a stringy texture as shown above, you're ready for the next step.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_44) Sugar-spinning the Branches
This WILL get messy, so shield the skin surrounding the nails with sticky tape or apply vaseline for easier clean-up afterwards.
Lift the tacky polish and drag it over the nail. I dragged it horizontally across, let it settle halfway across the nail, then continue in another direction in a shorter 'stroke'. Continue a with a few more 'branches' at random to get the effect of tree branches.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013: The Tutorial_5
5) Dotting the Candies
Using the largest dotting tool, dot each colour at random placements. Smaller ones can be added for variety. Wait for them to at least be semi-dry before adding the next layer.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_66) Dots - the 2nd Layer
Dot on the second layer in a slightly smaller size over the first, trying to set them as center as possible.
Set to dry then repeat until the last layer you can manage to dot is with using the sharp end of the woodstick.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_77) Dots - the 3rd Layer
Repeat as in step 6.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_88) Dots - the 4th Layer
Repeat as in step 6. This might be the last layer one can manage to include.

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The Tutorial_99) Topcoat Dotting
I dotted on a generous blob of topcoat over each candy circle. The topcoat should be set down for some time to reduce any bubbles that may have formed. Try not to use a fast drying topcoat, or the blog may warp during drying. This step may be skipped if you prefer a flatter look for the circles.

And we're done!

piCture pOlish Blog Fest 2013 - The ManicureIt actually feels pretty good that I managed a nail art without glitter!

I've noted that OnSugar's Comment feature has caused a few readers frustration by not accepting their input. While OnSugar works on rectifying it, I did a trial and error and found that comments don't get red-taped if you enter your information in the "Name" field without any space, ie. "ALacqueredAffair" instead of "A Lacquered Affair". I hope this works. As much as I want to, OnSugar doesn't allow the disabling of Captcha.

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder \ Fatty's Got More Blood + Nail Design Contest!

|
By A Lacquered Affair · June 24, 2012 · 0 Comments ·

"Since its 2007 debut in Japan, ManGlaze Matte Nail Polish has guys turning heads and nail fanatics abuzz with excitement. Finally, a nail polish designed with men in mind! This stuff is as tough as it looks. It covers easily (one or two coats) and dries super fast!" - ManGlaze


Images: Property of ManGlaze® 

Hi lovelies!

A show of hands (or clicks/comments) - have you tried matte nail polish? Well, this right here is the real deal; ManGlaze, the 'mack daddy' of matte polishes.

Brief Intro:
• ManGlaze hails from Chicago (USA).
• Dubbed the "Original Matte Nail Polish" or "The Manliest Nail Polish Known to Man", the concept was designed with men in mind, by men (but it's gotten women hooked too!).
• It oozes rocker attitude, with bottle labels designed by wickedly talented artists from around the world.
• No one simply buys ManGlaze off the shelves from mainstream stores. Your best bet is online.
• They are 3-free and cruelty-free!

Honestly, I wasn't particularly drawn to matte polishes. I've used matte top coats to achieve certain nail designs. That's it. I've seen "ManGlaze" being mentioned here and there, but seeing that they don't ship internationally, it didn't pique my interest.

Then came a surprise announcement by Annette that Shoppe EClecticCo is appointed the exclusive reseller of ManGlaze for Singapore, Asia and Australia. Shoppe EClecticCo has a knack for sourcing in-demand, quality products and making them accessible to us here in Singapore and the region.

So, my initial thought: "I could use a couple of them for nail art and stuff."

While seeing swatches online: "That's cool."

After trying them on: "These are brilliantly created!"

First Impressions
This was what I received with my order of three ManGlaze polishes from Shoppe EClecticCo:

ManGlaze packageClockwise from top left: Info card, Matte Is Murder, Fatty's Got More Blood, Cabron, guitar pick and sticker

Everything about it screams hardcore rock!

ManGlaze premiumsUpclose look at the premiums: Sticker, info card (back) and guitar pick

My favourite premium's the guitar pick. It's different for a nail polish freebie, but cleverly resonates the essence of the brand. Since I don't play the guitar, I'm going to try to hook it up to a necklace/ chain to show some ManGlaze pride.

ManGlaze boxManGlaze, all boxed up

A close-up shot of the boxes the polishes come in. Pretty sturdy and well-labelled.

ManGlaze un-boxingUn-boxing ManGlaze polishes

Two packing peanuts are packed on opposite sides of the bottle neck, and the bottle comes in a sealed plastic wrap. I truly appreciate the thought and effort put into the packaging to ensure breakages and spills are prevented/ minimised.

ManGlaze Fatty's Got More Blood, Matte Is Murder, Cabron

The Bottle
The form and size of a Manglaze bottle bears a strong resemblence to a-england's. The sticker label wraps all four sizes of the bottle so one cannot get a view of the polish through the glass, except from bottom and at the base of the neck. These are the ManGlazes involved in this post's mani:

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder          ManGlaze Fatty's Got More Blood
Click to see a different view of the bottles

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder in the bottleMatte Is Murder, through the bottle

There are fine shimmers trying to peek through the polish and bottle, in deep blue and the slightest hint of purple. Matte Is Murder is not your ordinary matte black polish.

On The Nails
How Matte Is Murder fairs on the the nails:

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder1 coat Nail Tek Foundation III ridge-filling base coat, 2 coats Matte Is Murder. Indoor, daylight

As a first-time matte polish user, the initial application was tricky. I didn't know what to expect. You better believe that the formula is fast-drying! It started to get a little vinyl-ish after applying on the second nail. I sealed the bottle and rolled (or shake, if you like) and it's ready to go on the next nail.

More shots:

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder close-upUpclose, indoor, daylight

The minute shimmers can only be captured upclose and in well-lit areas. Heck, this is suede! LOVE! (still a newbie with various polish finishes)

I applied a-england's The Shield top coat on alternate nails as part of the mani's look...

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder with top coatIndoor, daylight

...and MAGIC! Shimmers amplified! And one poor pinky nail nicked.

ManGlaze Matte Is Murder with topcoat close-upClose-up: Top coat bringing out the shimmer. Indoor, daylight

Stamping Experiment
I had planned to trying stamping with ManGlaze over the glossy finished nails and they worked pretty good on the first attempt. Again, hands needed to move fast. Subsequently, the stamping didn't work out on four of five nails (could you tell it's a feather motif on the pinky?). The middle and pinky fingernails were stamped using the one-coater Ulta3 Black Satin (compliments of the lovely Kate from LacquerCareFactor), a creme finish over Matte Is Murder without a top coat. It was not as glossy as anticipated, so the resulting finish was dull.

ManGlaze Nail ArtOutdoor, daylight

Inspired by the graphic on the label of Fatty's Got More Blood (and the HBO series True Blood), I used dried blood red of Fatty's Got More Blood and haphazardly dabbed it around the tips to conceal and distract from the irregularity of the stamping images. It's way too early for Halloween...

Fatty's Got More Blood has the same subtle shimmer (seems as though I'm name-dropping Susan, who also happens to be a stockist for ManGlaze) as Matte Is Murder, in the bottle and on the nail.

A layer of top coat (a-england The Shield) was partially applied over Fatty's Got More Blood as a contrast and to intensify the shimmers. Close-up shots of each nail:

NOTD: Happy Easter! (+Egg Hunt Giveaway)

| ˈēstər |
The most important and oldest festival of the Christian Church, celebrating the resurrection of Jesus Christ and held (in the Western Church) between March 21 and April 25, on the first Sunday after the first full moon following the northern spring equinox. - Google Dictionary

Happy Easter lovelies!

I was really excited to do an Easter-inspired mani and it's a first for me (I didn't get into the nail polish obsession until mid 2011). I love pastels as much as darks (no neons, please). So I gathered the pastel polishes I think are apt for the Easter theme, and some tools, then went with the flow.


I ended up using these:

China Glaze Lemon Fizz, Kinetic Candy, Re-Fresh Mint, Revlon Gumdrop, Essie A Crewed Interest, Pretty & Polished JawbreakerClock from top right: Essie A Crewed Interest, Revlon Gumdrop, China Glaze Kinetic Candy, Re-Fresh Mint, Lemon Fizz, Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker

It's funny how the names of some of the polishes used refer to candies. It just ties in with the whole Easter theme :)

Here they are:

Easter-inspired maniUnder indoor light, at night.

Pretty & Polished JawbreakerPretty & Polished Jawbreaker on the thumb

Nothing too elaborate.
Thumb: Full polish of Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker
Index: China Glaze Lemon Fizz dotted over Re-fresh Mint
Middle: Ruffian manicure with Pretty & Polished Jawbreaker over Revlon Gumdrop
Ring: Striped French tip with China Glaze Kenetic Candy and Lemon Fizz, Essie A Crewed Interest for horizontal line, topped with a fimo slice
Pinky: Re-Fresh Mint dotted over A Crewed Interest

I had to slop on the top coat (Poshe) and couldn't clean up the cuticles properly as i had to rush out (at 12:20am) to the airport to receive a visiting relative. But on any other day, my application is still sloppy... haha!

It's the first time I've worn Jawbreaker from Pretty & Polished, an indie nail polish label handmade by Chelsea from USA, and I never expected the formula and application to be as good as it is! Opaque and smooth in 2 coats, despite being riddened with all types and sizes of glitter particles. And oh my, purple micro glitter, red, blue and yellow hex glitters, large blue hex glitter and green stringy (is that a correct term?) glitter, all afloat in the creamy white base.

Pretty & Polished JawbreakerPretty & Polished Jawbreaker, in the bottle

Polished & Pretty JawbreakerAnother close-up

The brush is not as wide as OPI's, but not as small as Essie's; very, very similar to China Glaze's, which is comfortable. A unique polish to welcome Spring (not that it really matters here in SIngapore). Pretty & Polished is available on Etsy, but it's only opened at scheduled timings, and has always sold out fast!

 

G I V E A W A Y !  *CLOSED*

If you've skipped all the polish/ mani jibber-jabber to get to the giveaway, you're finally here. It's open internationally, so read on.
