All the nails!

Heya-  thoughts I'd show a couple of my latest manis.  Hope you enjoy!  


This was my birthday mani!   Nars Zulu with FingerPaints Psychedelic Hue. 
The "bad" version of China Glaze Emerald Sparkle.   It's fucking gorgeous.  Love it!  
China Glaze Re-Freshmint and Exotic Encounters.   EE is in my top 3 colors of all time.  


Zoya love here:  did this early this week-  calling it my Granny Mani due to the colors.  Wanted something more neutral but not boring. Zoya Aubrey (3 fingers) and Brigitte (2).  
And the mysterious RIGHT HAND!   Clearly a bit messier, but this was due to using fast drops and sleeping on that side ;/.  Brigitte (2) and Megan (3).  
First off, I used the Zoya system and am surprised how nice they still looked- since I've had chips appear within 24 hours, 96 is pretty damn good!   Wanted to spice it up with a bunch of random neutral Zoyas to build some contrast.  
The right hand again!  And also have more issues taking pictures with my left hand.  

Well there you go!  My goal is to try to do a post once a month, just as a recap.  Or not!   Who knows where life will take me.  

Thank you kindly,

Still plugging away!

Hey there folks that are still checking in.  Thank you kindly!  For the moment, Instagram is the easiest way for me to post.  I'm hoping that one day I can commit to full posts, but today is not that day!  

Please check me out at @andziawolski 

Here's my latest post using Zoyas matte velvets. The base is Sue with distressed streaks of Honor, Yves, Savita and Verushhka.  It's my second attempt at the distressed look and I think they came or well!   

Hope you guys have a fabulous weekend!  

Thank you kindly!

Why water marbling will be the death of me...

A cheerful Sunday Morning to you all!

I had recently learned about two "not as messy" water marbling techniques.  Yup.  Super late to that party.  Since I can't even brush my teeth without looking like a rabid hyena, water marbling is an all out disaster for me.  And I can't get any designs to ever look as nice as the ones I see online.  So, I decided to try out a couple of other methods.

The first method I found here Water Marble Nail Art Applique/   This appealed to me for a couple of reasons, mostly because I would have more control of the design on my nails.  It....didn't quite work out how I planned.  I would also like to add that any errors in the disastrous results are mine and mine alone.  

Without much further are my results:

Sooo much pretty!

More glittery goodness!

Like hobgoblin blood in a cup...

I is so smrt...

Bottle shot..sounds like a war cry..

This was after they tried to run away...

And here are the actual nails...

Oh the humanity!

The beautiful slaughter of a manicure

I believe I was weeping tears of Nail Junkie at this point

Now, this was a first attempt, but after two fingers, any thought of a full mani went out the door.  I used Sinful Colors Al Fresco for the base, which is beautiful all on its own.  And here is where I made my fatal error: I didn't wait for my base to dry enough.  And it ended up being a disaster.  And I honestly have little to no patience for the amount of clean up necessary to make any water marble to work.  So I quickly scrubbed my nails clean and went to method two.  

Chaotic chaos...used the same colors because of reasons


Wow, that looks so much


So again, all the error is on my end.  I can't remember where I had seen this method, but I definitely found it online and I made the same mistake here: impatience.  The nail polish wasn't quite dry enough to pull from the bag without tearing and my base color was still too wet.  I ended up folding over several layers of the decal to get decent coverage and you can see the amazing results here.  I wore this for one day because I was not up to do anymore mani that day.  It peeled right off within 24 hours.  Which meant less to remove later that evening.

I will try this again, learning from my mistakes (I hope).  Colors used for both were: all Sinful Colors: Al Fresco; Be Happy; Nail Junkie; Savage; and Rise and Shine.

Here are the other manis I did this week which were posted on Instagram @AndziaWolski

Sally Hansen CSM Punch Drunk with Deborah Lippmann Sugar Rum Cherry and Some Enchanted Evening accents
About the Girliest I get 

 China Glaze Fancy Pants and Dashboard Dreamer
Cloudy stippling ombres of amazeballs!
A England Perceval and Glitter Gal Black 3D

Regimes tend to fall every day.  I tend not to weep over that...

Thank you kindly!
