Virtues Nails
This is what I hate about Sephora’s Formula X base coat. After three or four days, whole nails just peel up.

The essence of cosplay is detail, so I copied the angle from the official Hawkeye logo for these Kate Bishop nails for northerndownpour.

Mine did not come out as nice, but practice makes perfect. I used Nails Inc’s Black Taxi (with their Westminster Bridge matte on top) and the gold is Zelda by Julep (not pigmented enough for this use).

A roundup of polishes that entered my apartment in May

Oui by Marc Jacobs. This came in my Lacquerous box and there’s no way I’m not picking this up the next time I’m at Sephora. On track to be my favorite hot pink of the year (and you know that means a lot coming from me).

Jules by Julep. I am always on the lookout for a pale pink that actually covers properly and this is a pretty good bet. It’s pinker than it looks in the photo, and sort of subtly lovely.

Bitter Bitch by Tom Ford. Not a fan. I don’t usually pick out chocolatey shades, but I wanted to try out the brand and this was what Lacquerous had. The quality of the polish itself was really only okay. A little thick for my taste. 

But for real. I need that Marc Jacobs.

Working on a Lady Loki design, but maybe also figured out how to do the Star Trek insignia?

Lots of trial and error, but we finally hit upon a solution, thanks to striping tape and stars from Nail Vinyls.
