Stila Countless Colour Pigments Swatches and Review

Stila Countless Colour Pigments

Stila Countless Colour Pigments are brand new and come in ten tantalizing color combinations.

They are hand made using a proprietary baking and pressing process. Each one features three shades which can be used individually or they can all be swirled together to make one shade. It’s not recommended to use them wet however. They suggest using fingers or a foam-tipped applicator to apply.

They are really pretty to just look at, like little works of art! I like how each one comes in its own colored compact.

Neon 80′s Paint Splatter Manicure Tutorial

Neon 80's Paint Splatter Manicure Collage

Happy Tuesday!

Today I’ve got a fun nail art tutorial for ya which I call a Neon 80′s Paint Splatter Manicure.

I had been wanting to get out of my comfort zone of dot manicures and thought the next easiest nail art challenge might be a paint splatter one. Seemed easy enough!

I got the idea for the colors of this one from The Carrie Diaries on the CW (this is a show about Carrie Bradshaw from Sex and The City when she was a teen in the 80′s). On one of the first episodes she has this black purse and she accidentally spilled nail polish on it. Instead of trying to fix it, she decided to splatter different nail polish shades all over it and it became this super fashionable bag. It’s like too bitchin!

In the spirit of the 80′s I went with a black base (Wet n Wild Ink Well) then three bright nail shades (Illamasqua Noble, OCC Wasabi and Orly Fancy Fuchsia).
