The Moody Blue(brown)s


Hey all!! So I thought I'd try my hand at making a polish out of one of my MAC pigments that I particularly love, and thought would make a killer polish...BLUE BROWN! It's far more red brown with the polish added, but the bluey-green sheen comes through nicely in person... not so much on camera, but I tried.



I used the Blue Brown homemade polish as a base, with Claire's new Mood Polish in Peaceful/Confident for the Swirls. Topped it off with Seche Vite top coat, which for some reason made the blue brown polish pucker as soon as it hit it. Did the same thing on the swatch nail I made, not sure why, I've never had it happen before. I kept it, because I thought it made an interesting texture because the puckers reflected the light differently.

The swatch, though it doesn't show off how blue/green the reflect is:

  1. I love all the designs you do...especially the Alice in Wonderland one. I have to questions:
    1. How did you do the hearts for the Alice nails
    2. Are your nails fake or are they naturally that gorgeous?!

  3. I made a blue/brown franken and named it muddy waters! It was also hard to capture on camera. You can find it on my blog if you're interested.
