Nail Adventures: Nails of New York Comic Con

Hey folks!

So, I needed some time to recover from NYCC. I had SO much fun! There are like, a million pics I’m gonna share with y’all this week, but the organizer in me says I have to make it make some sense. So, since I normally do nail posts on Tuesdays, here’s a round up of all three looks I did.

Let’s get started!

Days One and Two: Gilded Fishnet

Thursday I did a Catwoman themed outfit (tee, cat ears, leather skirt, leggings, and boots.) Friday it was Green Lantern (tee, leggings, denim shorts, sneakers). I thought the gold and black would be perfect to compliment those two themes. Random aside: if you have a good dollar store by you (Jack’s is the best here in NYC), you can find some good stuff. Those nail decals above? Sally Hansen, and I paid $1.99 instead of $11.99. Winning!

Day Three: Riddle Me This

So, my showpiece costume on Saturday was the Riddler, and I thought it would be fun to play with texture. These nail stickers are from L’Oreal and they…were not the best. 😦 By the end of the day I was picking them off of my nails. But they looked great for a couple of hours. You’ll get shots of the costume later this week. Considering how close to the wire I cut it, it turned out pretty good!

Day Four: A Little Captain In Me

The name to this manicure comes from my friend C, who asked that when she saw my fingers Sunday morning. 😀 Now, of course this is my favorite because blue, but it turned out better than I thought. The blue is Revlon’s Wild Card. After a day of work, I’ve knocked half of the rhinestones off. It was fabulous while it lasted!

Now, I’m off to edit some pics. Tomorrow’s post will be all about the makeup I sported. See you then!

New York Comic Con Quick Hit

Hi Lovelies! I live!

Whatever ick that took hold of me last week has been defeated, and now I can put the finishing touches on my wardrobe for the day.

I’m not cosplaying this year. Too broke. But! I did my nails:

And I picked out today’s shirt:

And now I’m having some tea and digging through my massive pile of makeup trying to decide how I want my face to look. I’ll be putting a post up later about all of the wonderful cosplayers I see and panels I attend, but if you want to get a look faster, follow me on Instagram (or look at the widget there on the right toolbar.) Until then, stay beautiful!

Ugh. Sick.

Hi lovelies.

So I’m typing this from a sofa that is littered with tissues and discarded medicine packs.

I do hate being sick, particularly when I have a million things to do, and this was my only day off to get them all done.

And on a completely superficial note, I wanted to do my nails today and just don’t have the energy to put any heart into them. The nail polish posts will be postponed to next week for Comic Con. And I am going to Comic Con, come hell or high water. I’ll be doing X-Men themed nails and makeup next week, so if you aren’t following me on Instagram, do it! They’ll get a sneak peek of the looks before I post them here.

Ok, I’m off to get some soup, more medicine, and sleep. Until next week, stay healthy and beautiful!
