School project: Pop art nails

I have a wonderful teacher who always asks to see what I have on my nails, she is teaching modern art history, from 1900 to the present and last week we where learning about pop art and our assignment was to make a "pop art" art :p and I decided to do a Roy Lichtenstein inspired nail art.
I studied the patterns and color combinations he used in his art and incorporated them onto my nails.

Polishes used:
OPI - Alpine Snow
OPI - Cajun Shrimp
OPI - I Just Can't Cope-acabana
OPI - Need Sunglasses?
Opi - Taupe-less Beach
Nabi - Blue Away
Nameless black polish in a skull bottle

It's a little messy but I think I did pretty good.

Haul: Nail Mail

When Color4nails had discount on all A England polishes I decided I needed to try a couple and using the opportunity ordered few more, I'm loving their service, the delivery was quick and that's saying something because I live in Iceland. Everything was packaged in bubble wrap and padded envelope and the best part was that I got it straight to my door.

From left to right:
Jade - Holografico Mgia. Beautiful black holo (See picture below.)
A England - Order Of The Garter. Blue shimmer with purple flecks.
A England - Rose Bower. Red metallic holo.
Alanna Renee - Avada Kedavra. Lime green base with small and medium lime green glitter.
Glisten and Glow H K Girl - Fast drying and super shiny clear top coat. Can't wait to try it, heard so many great things about it.

And here is an extra picture of the holographic black, sooo sparkly!!!

In other news, I'm swamped in school right now, there might get a little while between posts, sometimes I just don't have the energy to do anything on my nails.

This is what happens when.....

....I don't try my design out first on a nail wheel.
This isn't a complete disaster but I had something completely different in mind, it was supposed to be much more delicate and not so chaotic.

Polishes used:
OPI - 4 In The Morning
OPI - Love.Angel.Music.Baby.
And I used topcoat to get it more sparkly.

I love gradients

Just so you know, my pinky is really swollen, I was trying to be faster than my cat to the door so I could close it before he got out so I was jumping at the door and somehow my hand collided all wrong on the door, so now I have a sprained pinky >.< 
I'm really sore, swollen and bruised but at least my finger is not broken. ;)

But on to the nail art!
I'm hooked on gradients at the moment.

Polishes used:
American Apparel - Crescent Heights
American Apparel - Peacock

Love both these polishes, they are really unique.

A Late Happy New Year And A Gradient

Happy new year people!! I'm back home and I don't like it, there was no snow in Sweden and not even that cold and I came home to wet snow and cold wind :( 
It's back to school now and I'm pretty exited over the courses I'll be taking this semester.

But here are my last two polishes I bought at the airport

Essie - Tart Deco
Essie - In Stitches

 And a gradient using them :)

 One glossy picture
