Owls Galore with Nail Hoot

I was asked a couple of weeks ago to create a mani for a collage for Leila of @gryeyegoddess for her birthday. I was thrilled & jumped right in creating my mani. 

The color I'm using today is Owlette Le by Nail Hoot, a red shimmer polish.
I started off using 2 coats of Owlette Le followed by 1 coat topcoat. Once dry I applied owl water decals onto each nail & followed up with 1 more coat of topcoat. 
Outside lighting 
Inside lighting 
I picked this color & the decals because I was told Leila loves red & owls so I thought this was perfect. 
Also seriously love using water decals! Super easy & super cute!

Meet The Blogger: Meet Krystal Of Queen Of Nails 83

I'm back! I took a mini blogging break & now I'm ready to junk right back in!



For today's Meet The Blogger it's Krystal of Queen Of Nails 83. She a new blogger that I've gotten to know over the last couple of months, seriously her swatches are amazing!

I am so sorry that I didn't get this back to you sooner. I don't know what happened...I totally spaced out!

What make you start a blog? My husband got tired of hearing my talk his ear off about polish and I had other swatchers/bloggers and family members telling me I should start one.

How long have you been blogging? Almost 5 months

What would you say makes your blog unique? I try give more than just swatches and a review. I try to make everyone feel welcomed from the newbie just starting in the indie world to the veteran who has been around since the first indie brand.

What's your favorite part of having a blog? I get to express myself, totally and freely. I blog as if I were talking to friends. Meeting new people and being able to develop relationships with other nail addicts...lol

Have you ever reviewed a product that has become something you use all the time? Yes, Vapid! The Digit Dust is amazing. 

What would you say is the downside of blogging? The time it takes to write photos and the review.

Do you have a least favorite post that you've written? Not as of yet.

What is something you have to have while writing a blog post? Examples music, watching netflicks, drinking tea ect. I write sporadically. As soon as I get my swatch packet I start taking notes on my phone and then I blog all at once. Once I am ready to pust all my notes together, I always have a hot cup of tea ☕️.

Do you think your blog has changed of the years? Still too new to have many changes but I have added nail art and different finishes to my swatches to show customers options

Are you married? Yes, happily for almost 3 years.

Do you have any kids and/or pets? 3 kids, Xavier 13, Xylana 9 and Xadrian 5. We also just added Dallas our beagle, hound mix

Any advice for new bloggers? Be your authentic self. Do not change or compromise for anyone! Don't compare yourself to others, be the best you! Lastly, be honest in your review. 


Thanks so much for being a part of Meet The Blogger Krystal! You can find her at her blog & the following social media pages.

The colors I'm using today are:
Huckleberry Hooch by Top Shelf Lacquer, 
Bright purple holo polish.

A pink scattered holo polish.
I started off using 2 coats of Huckleberry Hooch followed by 1 coat of topcoat. Once dry I applied a butterfly stencil from Toadarrific Vinyls onto 2 nails & applied 2 coats of 4 Years & Counting. I waited a few minutes then removed the stencils & applied 1 more coat of topcoat.

Sharpie Dots with Anchor & Heart Lacquer & Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer

I recently read a blog post where someone used a sharpie to create nail art. This is such a cool consept! So of course I had to try it. I mean what kind of a blogger am I if I don't right? 

The colors I'm using today are: 
Snowflake Kisses by Seventy Seven Nail Lacquer, a silvery white base filled with silver holo glitters.
Mermaid Kisses by Anchor & Heart Lacquer,a bubblegum pink with violet shifting glass flecks & shimmer.

I started off using 2 coats of Snowflaw Kisses on my ring & pointer fingers & 2 coats of Mermaid Kisses on the rest of my nails followed by 1 coat of topcoat. Once dry, using a gold sharpie I drew dots on all my nails followed by 1 more coat of topcoat. 
Outside lighting

No inside lighting pictures today, I took these then went back to bed to sleep off this cold. 

Overall I like using a sharpie for nail art. Only 1 thing though, I should have waited longer before applying topcoat because it did smear the sharpie in some spots.
