new/updated (.vix) nails!

howdy! it’s been a while, huh? in fact, it’s been since valentine’s day since i made some new stuff if you can believe it. but i’ve got a *ton* of new things to share, so let’s just jump right in!

eight new nail packs are available — six are updated older releases && two are brand spankin’ new! and all of them can be found on my marketplace store!

the two newest sets…

french glitter is a set that matches the previous (and newly updated!) french mani/pedi set.. except this time, there’s glittery tips, oooh~!

and the fruit basket set is something i’ve wanted to do for ages now! something fun ‘n’ summery, with lots of color and glitter too! apples, oranges, watermelon, strawberries.. all the fresh, delicious fruits you can handle~

as for these older sets, all of them have been updated with maitreya && omega compatibility, as well as still having slink appliers as well, with *new* textures!

a staple nail style is up next.. lovely, simple french manicures and pedicures.. which, as i said above, match the new french glitter set!

one of my most popular sets (that is a collab between me and my good girlfriend vivienne who is featured in the ad!) is mr. panda. cute pastel tips with adorable hand drawn panda face nail art!

to go along with mr. panda, is a set called spring pastels! these are the same color palette as mr. panda, just without the panda face. awesome for slink hand users to create accent nails with!

next up.. the nails i definitely wear the most, personally, are the updated blackened tips set. i always grab for these, they are by far my number one when it comes to something easy && something cute on my fingers ‘n’ toes (and, it features my girl pumms gorgeous face in the ad!).

and lastly, two sets that go hand in hand (har har). both the pastel creams && the pastel tips sets are in the same color palettes, and are great for mixin’ and matchin’. one is a solid nail color (pastel creams) and the other is tipped with a complimentary cream color (pastel tips)~

if you’re curious, come check ’em out! ♥♥

new vix nails!

/me dusts off the cobwebs

hellooooooooo everybody!

since my new blog with my girls, current outfit, has taken over most of my bloggin’ time instead of here.. i’ve decided to convert *this* li’l slice of the interwebs into an update blog for my store, .vix!

and since you’re seein’ this, that means there’s new stuff to be had!

new (.vix) nails!

there’s *three* NEW nail sets out, as well as an updated older set — and all four include slink, maitreya & omega appliers! the older set, bright solids has been updated with new textures as well, which is awesomely exciting (to me at least, shh).

if you’d like to check ’em out, then you can find them on my marketplace store.

new couple/friend poses @ (.vix)!

hellooooooo everybody!

two posts in two days, i must be on a roll. ;p

however, i’ve got some shameless self promotion to take care of. ’cause ya see, i’ve made some *new* couples && friends poses that i’m just itchin’ to show off~

new releases @ (.vix)

the first pose, called please? (on the left!), is a.. slightly racy 😉 couples pose. well, i suppose it could be racy.. it depends on what you’re asking please for!

the second pose, called stay with me (on the right bottom), is a sweeter, intimate couple pose. park yourself right on your partner’s lap so they *have* to stay put with you, bwahah!

and lastly, the *big* group pose, called got my sisters with me (on the right top) is a reeeeeally fun one. i know from personal experience that finding larger group poses can be difficult, so i included five poseballs with this set! however, i made the poses in such a way that allows you to drop one or two or even three off the set for smaller group pics, if needed! very handy~

as always, all three poses are located on my marketplace store, just sort Age: Newest First to see them easily!

or you can hitch a ride here, to the (.vix) inworld location to test all the poses for yourself! ♥

all about family

the longer i’m in second life, the more open minded i become to other ways to experience our virtual world. there’s more to it than just shopping and posing (though you’d be hard-pressed to realize that if you read *my* blog!), and the longer i’m around other avatars… the more i realize this.

the family communnity in sl is something i’ve shied away from in the past, but that was simply because i didn’t understand it. i am still learning, but i have a better understanding now of the what and the why.. and it’s all thanks to making poses, believe it or not.

the last time i made family poses was my first *real* exposure to that side of sl.. and since then, i’ve made more friends in that community. and i cannot deny how absolutely adorable kidatars can be.. especially when they act just like you think they will && make standing on a static pose for a while to take a vendor snapshot incredibly difficult.

but! if you can wrangle them long enough, the results are pretty darned cute..

so yes, indeed, i’ve made some more family-oriented poses… this time, a round of four. one for just the kidlets, two for an adult + two kids, and one for two adults + one kid. cute, silly, cuddly, and all around sweet. i had a lot of fun making these!

all four pose sets are currently listed on my marketplace store (sort Age: Newest First to see them easily!) and of course, they’re available at the (.vix) inworld mainstore, where you can test out the poses for yourself!

holiday stuffs

poses & nails

i always get super excited to show off the things i’ve made here on my blog. i may not be the most talented content creator on the grid, but i’m proud of the little things i make. and it’s even better when i can rope my friends into helping me with the ad photos, because then i’m even more proud to show it all off. :’)

so! new stuff!

back to work

of course, after i made my *oh so triumphant* return to sl last week.. i spent the majority of my time messing with my inventory, shopping, and trying to catch up. not gonna lie, i’m still trying to catch up fully, but that’s not the point!

the point is: once i felt mostly comfortable in world again, i almost immediately got right back into makin’ nail appliers. what can i say… they are *so* fun to experiment with! because that’s what i’m doing as a newbie “content creator”.. experimenting. so far, though, i am liking the results!

old blogging habits die really hard, so i still struggle with making ads that show the nails off nicely while also attempting to offer some sort of appropriate “styling” for them. i think ads like mine indulge me in the i miss fashion blogging sometimes sort of way, which is why all my marketplace listings also show all the nails, in all possible colors, close up in a separate set of pictures.. that way i can still take pics like these && not shoot myself in the foot in terms of marketing!

that’s how you’re supposed to do it, right?

day 14: freebie

everybody loves freebies, right? i know i sure do… so i have a new one to share, but it’s one that *i* made this time! \o/

freebie

this back to back friends pose is up for freeeeee in my marketplace store, just because i felt like making a new freebie~ ❤ there’s also the first freebie pose set i made still up, too, if you’re needing some single poses as well.

aren’t i generous? ;p

…the answer is “yes!”, btw.

day 9: zebra stripes

just a quickie post today! i sort of ran out of time to do anything blog-worthy, so instead.. i’ll simply show off something i’ve been working on!

zebra stripes

if you haven’t seen the new round of collabor88 stuffs…. what are you waiting for?! seriously! if you lived through the 90’s, then a lot of the things at c88 that will be a total blast from the past. you can see a round-up of goodies here on seraphim, in case you’re curious && haven’t been yet.

but with all the childhood memories flooding in from things like furbies, tamagotchis, pogs and floppy disks… i was reminded of something else i loved as a kid: lisa frank. and the biggest thing with lisa frank was neon-colored animals. kittens, unicorns, puppies, bears, tigers, penguins.. none of them were safe from lisa frank’s neon rainbow paintbrush. i had stickers and notebooks and trapper keepers(!) that were all plastered with lisa frank’s art… so i thought i might pay a li’l homage of my own to my childhood with some neon zebra print manis ‘n’ pedis!

my bestie actually helped me by drawing the zebra stripes out, the same as she did for my mr. panda nail sets, which is really exciting for me because i *love* doing collab things with her.. she’s always full of awesome ideas! like, for instance, i’ve made two different sets of colors — one with dark gray tips that i’m showin’ off here and another with white tips instead, both of which were my bff’s ideas. i knew there was a reason i kept her around. ;p

anyway! i still need to do ads and finish the HUDs and all that fun junk, but they should be out soon! maaybe with some new poses too, we’ll see!
