Hello lovelies & happy Friday. It’s almost the weekend! & today I’m keeping the Summer time vibes up with a neon dry brush design featuring the new Sally Hansen neons I recently shared!
As much as I want Fall designs, it’s kind of hard to think of Fall of when it feels like 38 degree outside. So I guess I’ll keep the Summertime vibes going just a wee bit longer — at least until the cooler temperatures forecasted this weekend.
The Miracle Gel neons are perfect for this kind of design because of the thinner formulas—especially to get them to smudge when applying your top coat. You get that blended effect, which I adore. & obviously I had to add some graphic lines over my base to complete the whole look—it just adds something to the manicure overall; gives it a little extra POP!
What are we thinking about this neon look — yey or nay? Let me know down in the comments below.
& stay tuned because I have a ton of Fall/Autumn worthy shades (just ordered the China Glaze Autumn Spice collection yesterday!) coming soon.
I know I’ve been very quiet on the blog front this week as my Mum & Dad finally made it down to visit, after being away for the last 9 months. So between soaking in visiting time, & working a ton, posting has been slacking. I’ve got a few nail art looks to share, so I’m definitely going to sit down & concentrate on getting my posts written! First up, some fun neon & scattered holo abstract stripes.
I’m really loving how these turned out. I’ve been seeing so much neon, I needed to do another neon look (plus I just bought this “pastel neons” shade from Essence, so I needed to do a manicure with it!)
Originally I just had the abstract stripes, but it was such a sunny beautiful day, I needed to add some holo. I’ve been applying the Starrily holographic top coats I have (Space Debris & Eclipse) to basically every pedicure I’ve done in the last 3 weeks, so I figured I should try it over nail art.
What do you think about this neon & holo look? I feel like I often overthink applying holographic top coat over any neon shades, but I’m definitely going to make a more conscious effort to do it more often! Because I really, really love the end result.

Today I have done pretty rainbow nail art to share with you, inspired by the new Sally Hansen Rainbow Lights collection! I’m really, really loving this new collection, & the pastel shades, so I was inspired to create this swirly rainbow accent nail. This is also super easy nail art that I feel anyone with a mail art brush could create this look!
Look how cute that accent nail is? Like I said in my Swatch Sunday post, I really love the pastel rainbow shades. & I really love how all these shades compliment each other so well! I also wanted to add a few rhinestones to my nails, but since I was wearing this to work & didn’t want rhinestones popping off in people’s coffees, I decided to pull out my bottle of OPI I Snow You Love Me! This polish has always been a favourite because of the tiny round holographic glitters. A great rhinestone alternative.

It’s Thursday—almost the weekend. Unless of course your entire province is in lockdown & time no longer has any meaning. But that just means more time to paint my nails, right?
Today’s look is a throwback to one of my favourite styles — the Saran Wrap splatter. It’s no secret how much I LOVE this style, & since our days are feeling a bit more Spring-like, I needed some neon!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Pretty Peony
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Violet Voltage
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Miami Nice
Sally Hansen Miracle GelElectri-Lime
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Fuchsia Fever
Crinkled up plastic wrap
Oh man, I know this neon collection is 2 years old, but holy it is one of my all time favourite Sally Hansen collections. It’s just so bright & beautiful & I adore it. I never get tired of creating looks with it, & I’m actually shocked I hadn’t done a splatter look with it yet. Definitely an oversight. Also I like how this splatter reminds me of tie dye — I know the tie dye nail hype kind of died down a bit (no pun intended), but I still love all things tie dye. In fact, I’ve very recently found TWO tie dye shirts in the kids section at the thrift store that fit me, & I’ve been wearing them non-stop.
What do you think about this neon saran wrap splatter design? Are you feeling these neons? Do you own this neon collection from Sally Hansen, & if not, which neon nail polish collection is your favourite? Let me know in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! Today I’ve gone some fun nail art to share with you, inspired by some brand new polishes I found at my local Winners. My mum gave me a gift card for Christmas, so I decided to venture out to see if I could find any fun polish goodies.
& I did!
So naturally I needed to do some nail art. I decided to use a cute set from the brand Cherimoya called Hide & Go Chic. The internet has no picture of this set, or info, & the bottles are lacking names sadly. I ended up using 5 of the 6 shades that came in the collection.
I’ve been seeing a lot of these swirly stripes designs all over Instagram, so I thought I needed to do another version of this fun design. I really liked these dusty, muted shades in this collection, & thought they would be perfect for a 70s inspired sort of swirly pattern.
At first, I had these shimmery stripes with glossy top coat, but after I added the matte top coat I feel like it completed the look. & I totally wish I had a dress or peasant blouse in this pattern. How pretty would that be?
Also for a polish set that was only $5, I’m really in love with the shades. They’re probably more something I’ll use more for nail art versus wearing them on they’re own, but overall, all the shades are super cute. Especially the dusty blue & golden rod! Love those shades (especially for Spring… anyone else dreaming of Spring yet?)
What do you think about this design? Are you digging these shades as much as I am? Let me know what you think down in the comments below!
