t’s another quiet year, obviously, but I had to do something fun on my nails. I had this image in my head of a rainbow over a pretty green, & I think that the end result turned out exactly how I had pictured. I even managed to sneak in a little holo too.
I love how these turned out, even though they were super time consuming haha. Who know 7 stripes of colour could be so much work. I also totally did my colours backwards, but you know what… I still think they’re awesome, & I hope you do too! & of course, I had to add a little holo to really bring my rainbow to life!
What do you think of my St Patrick’s Day rainbow nails? Are you wearing a special green design today? Let me know in the comments below! 🌈🍀💗
I’ve been slacking a bit on my posting this week, haha. Sometimes real life just gets in the way of blog life. But I’ve got a big, big coffee to start my day, & I’m finally sharing this floral I teased on my Instagram stories last week. 💗🌸
Whew, this was a lot of polishes to bring it alive, but the end result…. well I think it speaks for itself! Also check out that peak-a-boo holo! I’m kind of a obsessed with dainty holographic looks over a nude-ish base. It’s a nice introduction to Spring, & since here on the East Coast it’s apparently going to be above average temperatures for the next 3 months, I think we’re going to have an early Spring! Which, you know… I’m okay with. Give me Spring dresses, no snow, & pastels, & I’ll be happy. It’s the least 2021 can do for us after the dumpster fire that was last year.
What do you think about this Spring floral, & it’s sneaky holo base? Are you, too, ready for more Spring? Let me know what you are looking forward to the most about Spring down in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! I hope everyone’s day is off to a lovely start. It’s super freezing here in Halifax today (-8 degrees BEFORE wind chill), & I am not a fan of the cold at all. But at least I got to start my day off with a sugar free caramel hazelnut soy latte.
Today’s nail art look was a random decision. I actually had originally planned on doing some floral nails, but it was late, I was tired, & I needed something faster. I haven’t done any marble nails in a while, especially a drab marble, so it felt like a good time to do them.
Please excuse my dry cuticles. No matter how much hand cream or cuticle oil I apply, I just can’t seem to keep up with this horrendously cold weather/hand sanitizer combo. Ugh. But, at least my nails look pretty!
& that’s what is most important, right?
Really loving the end result of this marbling. I always have a bit of trouble with the first few nails, but we always get it figured it. Also I love the purple & gold colour combination forever. I don’t think I could ever get tired of purple nail polish! Plus I don’t think I’ve ever worn this pretty purple I won from Beyond the Nail a few years ago (via Instagram). They actually moved bases to my city, so I’m excited to start purchasing more shades from them in the future because they make gorgeous polishes!
What do you think about this purple marble? What nail art are you planning for this month. We’ve got St Patrick’s Day & Easter at the beginning of next month, so lots of fun nail art to come!
I really, really adore how this manicure turned out. I haven’t tried to use this stamping plate since I reviewed it, but I decided to try it out with a matte shade from China Glaze, as I find they sometimes work quite well for stamping. & I think my stars turned out really, really well! & I think the bright purple really pops against my pale minty pastel base. It’s giving me Spring/Summer vibes, which is perfect because I’m officially over winter. I just hope that this March doesn’t last as long as last year.
What do you think about this star design? Which design from February has been your favourite? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s week is off to a good start. We had another stormy day here in Halifax yesterday—lots of freezing rain. Seriously ready for it to be Spring already!
Today I have another new design for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb! Today’s prompt is Mandala. & I’ll be honest—this was not an easy prompt for me. Originally I tried stamping because I have a plate that has a few mandala patterns, but that did not work out, so then I tried free handing a pattern, which was also a fail. But when I typed “mandala nails” into Pinterest, I saw a few beautiful looks using dots, so I decided that would probably be my easiest (& least frustrating) option!
As you can see from my close up, this isn’t the most perfect mandala pattern, but I’m still happy with how it turned out. I was originally inspired by this Pinterest post, but obviously I need more practice (& maybe not to start at 11pm) to get mine to look as beautiful as that! But you know, doing this challenge is all about testing myself, & that means even those manicures I’m not 100% comfortable with!
What do you think about this “Mandala” look? Is this dotticure version something that you would try yourself? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!
