Red Cup inspired red nails. 

So here is what I topped Claire’s Red Carpet with from yesterday’s post! I’m sure you’ve come across one of the adorable cups from Starbucks red cup collection. As my husband and I are both avid Starbucks drinkers (incase you’ve never noticed before) I just had to recreate one of the designs on my nails. So I went with my favourite–the Christmas lights! 

The polishes used for this mani are:

  • Claire’s Red Carpet 
  • Sally Hansen I Love Nail Art pen in black. 
  • OPI I Cannoli Wear OPI
  • Essie Gel Setter. 
  • Small sized dotting tool. 


What do you think of this mani? My light bulbs turned out slightly wonky, but I feel like it channels the inspiration well enough! Plus there is nothing that says Christmas is coming (for the coffee addict at least) than when Starbucks brings out their red cups… and Gingerbread latte of course! 

Negative Space Chevron floral 

I always have a few favourite things I always lean towards when it comes to doing my nails. Right now its blue nail polish, nail vinyls, chevrons, negative space & floral. I’ve been reaching for all of those quite frequently, so why not incorporate all of those things into one manicure?!

For this manicure, I used:

  • China Glaze I Sea the Point
  • Essie Go Ginza
  • Essie Peach Daiquiri
  • China Glaze Hang Ten Toes
  • China Glaze Feel the Breeze
  • Chevron Nail vinyls from My Nails Did Vinyls
  • Small rhinestones from Icing
  • Essie Gel Setter
  • Small nail art brush, & large size dotting tool for floral details.

 

Words cannot begin to describe how much I love how this mani turned out! I love how the floral looks over my negative space chevrons & how all the colours compliment each other. I’ve been having so much fun playing with all of my nail vinyls, & I can’t wait to collect more designs so I can try out all sorts of different looks!

Cactus Pattern Nails

Hello Darlings & happy Saturday!

Today I have some cute cactus pattern nails to share with you! I’ve been seeing a lot of adorable cactus manicures popping up in my Instagram feed lately including adorable manicures by @ChelseaQueen, @NailAllie, & @theBaseCoat. So with so much amazing inspiration around me, I had to try and create my own cactus design! It took two tries (my first attempt was, ahem, not the prettiest) but I think that my final design turned out quite cute!

 

The polishes I used for this manicure were:

  • China Glaze I’ve Got A Blue Attitude
  • Sally Hansen I Love Nail Art pen in Green
  • Sally Hansen I Love Nail Art pen in Purple
  • Essence The Green and The Grunge
  • Quo by Orly Diva
  • ACO by Ardene Techno Green
  • Essie Gel Setter

 

First off, can I just comment on how perfect China Glaze I’ve Got A Blue Attitude is? I picked it & We’ve Got The Beet on payday & I LOVE it! Anytime a colour looks like it glows on my nails, I’m pretty much guarenteed to fall in love with it & I’ve Got A  Blue Attitude definitely glows on the nail. I think it’s the perfect colour to pair with my little cactus design.

Negative Space Colour Blocking. 

I’m in love with the Spring weather lately. And with all these warm days that means I need Bright colours on my nails. 

I’ve been killing Essie In The Cab-Ana a lot lately…. It’s just such a perfect blue. So I decided to grab it, and ORLY Scenic Route (from their Sprinng 2016 collection) to create a fun negative colour block! 

The polishes I used for this mani were:

  • OPI My Point Exactly
  • ORLY Scenic Route
  • Essie In the Cab-Ana 
  • Art Club Nail Art Duo in Paisley Blue
  • Essie Gel Setter 


This mani turned out even better than I had pictured in my head! I just love when that happens. I always forget how much can I love negative space nails until I wear them again! 

What’s your favourite polish/colour to wear this time of year?
