Good morning lovelies & happy Thursday! It’s almost the weekend — & the end of the month! I can’t believe how quickly April has sped by. It’s actually crazy.
Today I have some pretty pastel geometric tips to show off. I was feeling a bit of a colour block look, & we went from there & I love the final look. I’ve been looking at old negative space geometric looks (like this one circa 2016) & really have been missing them! So I thought a blast from the past was in order.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Revlon Ultra HD Snap Nail Enamel Making the Most
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Sweet Pea
Color Club Art Club Pink Pastel
How beautiful do these shades look paired together? I think they’re very Spring-y & fun. 🌸
This was done completely without nail art tools, brushes or vinyls — but if you didn’t feel like you could do a clean enough application, you could definitely use them. I just didn’t feel like waiting that long for my base coats to dry.
Plus I find by using the Art Club striper around the edges, it gives it a nice clean finish & hides any mistakes I might make.

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! & happy first day of Fall! It’s true — Summer is officially over. Which means we are just that much closer to Halloween.
Today I thought I would celebrate the occasion with some plaid nails. This has basically become a yearly tradition (in fact, I posted another plaid on this date last year), & this year I decided on some neutral toned plaid.
I decided to go with China Glaze The Snuggle Is Real for my base shade, because bit is such a lovely neutral, & then added the little bits of pink & maroon for accents. I think this colour scheme is a perfect every day plaid look, & I got so many compliments on it when I wore it to work! It was very exciting.
What do you think about this plaid look? Do you enjoy plaid nails for Fall? What plans do you have to celebrate Autumn? Let me know in the comments below!
Can you believe it? we’re midway through June! Which means I’m in full all-floral-all-the-time mode. I’m sure you’re not surprised. Today’s nail art look was actually a quick nail art design. I had painted my nails, & wanted to add a little something using my nail art pens, which turned into a full floral mani. Sometimes, I just can’t be stopped haha. But I actually really like how these turned out; usually I go for a more rose centric floral design, but I wanted to create these almost daisies, & I think they turned out really beautiful. & I did them completely without any true nail art brushes.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Fuchsia
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Purple
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Green
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen White
Art Club Nail Art Duo Neon Green
OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-go
First off, I know these are not my most perfect floral, but I’m really kind of digging them. My little daisies turned out so colourful & cute. I would totally wear this pattern as a full sundress too. It’s all floral, all the time over here. Also, I feel like these nail art pens are so underrated & deserve a comeback. While my nail art brushes will always be the best for nail art, using these pens can still create an awesome pattern! Also they are still number one for dotticures.
What do you think about this cute little floral design? Is there anyone else who loves these nail art pens like I do? The Sally Hansen ones were always my go-to (I have so many), but I haven’t found them for sale in a very long time. Does anyone know of any else nail art pens you can buy? I’d totally be down for adding more to my collection for quick designs like this! Let me know down in the comments below.
I don’t know where you are, but here it’s feeling so Spring-y. Yesterday I work flats & a jean jacket to work, & even enjoyed an iced coffee. It was so amazing — I have so missed the warmer weather. The next couple days are supposed to be lovely, & then it’s going to get colder & rainy, so I’m going to soak it all in as long as possible!
I’ve also been wearing a lot of Springy nail polishes, like this stripe-y design from last week.
Oh yes, these brighter colours just feel so good to wear again. & stripes are so easy to incorporate all sorts of colours at once.
Now… it’s time to pack away all the winter sweaters, & move all the Spring dresses to the front! Bring on sunshine, the beach days, all the sundresses — I just can’t wait! & of course, all the Summer nail polish collections which always make me so happy. Maybe I’ll even start sharing Fashion Friday outfits again, now that every outfit doesn’t consist & 15 layers & a scarf. Haha.
