Hello lovelies & happy Friday. Today I’m sharing a fun, easy accent nail look.
This look was actually inspired an old design I did in the early days of this blog. I loved the fun polka dots with the bright nail polish, & I decided to do an updated version. Obvious I switched up some polishes so these colour scheme turned out a bit different, but I think over all this was a really fun (almost Summer-y) look to wear.
At first I wasn’t sure what I thought of this nail art look because the colour scheme is not my usual. But the look definitely grew on me — even if the colours are giving me slight Wonder Bread vibes. I do love a good polka dot accent nail — for a while that was one of the only nail art techniques I could do, so I wore it a lot.
What do you think of these funky polka dots accent nails? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below.
Sorry for being MIA this week, so far. It’s been rough — the kids have been & fighting some viruses which has led to a couple hospital trips. I actually originally had planned on posting this look yesterday, but spent the previous evening in the ER with my daughter (she’s fine!), & didn’t get home until 7am.
So not a lot of nail posting was happening yesterday. Just napping. & a very sleepy day at work.
But I did do these fun pastel sponging nails with the intention of sharing for my 8th Blog-iversary yesterday, so I really wanted to share these with you! Especially because they’re pretty, & springy, with just a sprinkling of holo glitter.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure Hardener
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Sun-showers
Sally Hansen MG She’ll-ebration
Londontown Lakur Mint No Chip
OPI Gelato on my Mind
China Glaze Fairy Dust
Latex Free Make Up Sponge
Such an easy look to do, & I always love these spongy designs for Spring. They make a great base for other nail art designs, or they’re just pretty on their own! & a layer of China Glaze Fairy Dust is pretty much mandatory, especially when sunny days are expected.
I’ve been doing these sponge nails a long, long time. When I was looking for a nail design to celebrate my blog-iversary, I wanted a look I’ve been doing a while, & this one just felt right!
Can you believe this blog has been around for 8 years now? While I’ve been blogging since it became a thing, 2003 or so, I don’t think I’ve had a continuous blog for this long. So it’s so exciting! & here is to many more years—as many years to come as the internet will have me.
It’s rainy, and yucky here, but it could be worse — it could be snow. So I will take the rain. Today I have a pretty floral look to share with you to brighten up your day. They’re a bit Sunflower-esque. This nail design was actually prompted by a co-worker of mine who told me I should do yellow nails with yellow flowers. & so this design was spawned.
Now that Spring is coming, I hope, I just want to wear all my florals. I’ve been breaking out my floral shirts, & even a few dresses on those warmer days. &, obviously, on my nails because floral nails always fit — even on snowy, or rainy, days.
What do you think about this yellow on yellow floral? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments, & let me know what floral you would like to see me do next!
Today I have a fun early Valentine’s Day look to share with you I did before my tragic nail break last week. I was feeling something Valentines-y, but not pink, so I decided to recreate a look similar to one I did last year.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Millionails
Top Coat: Seche Vive
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Blitz
Essie All the Wave
Dimension Nails Great Blue Heron (gifted c/o: NailStuff.ca)
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a lovely start to their week so far. It continues to be Winter here, & now that Christmas is over — I am definitely over it! Bring on Spring, please!
Today’s look is one I haven’t done in a while: roses. You know my love affair with anything floral, so I can’t believe it took me so long to paint another floral. Also does this count for as some Valentine’s Day inspiration?
How pretty did these turn out? I used Dimension Nails Hooded Seal for my base, which is from her brand new Winter collection. I love the holo shimmer, & the icy blue colour! It’s very, very pretty. I just wish it had been a sunnier day, so you could really see how beautiful the holo is!
I don’t know why, but I just love love love my roses with a blue background. Something just makes the roses always pop so beautifully. I decided to go with a deeper, darker rose because they just felt more Winter-y to me. & I love how they turned out. My middle finger turned out my favourite.
What do you think about this vintage rose design? Would you wear this look? Let me know down in the comments below!
