Morning lovelies & happy Tuesday! Time for some more nail art!
I was feeling a bit uninspired for a while, but I think I might be breaking out of my funky fully now! Today it’s all about these funky freehand colour block nails. I love these colour combo nails, mostly because the colour combinations are endless, & they can be worn in any season.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Sensationail Nailtural Cactus Me Outside
Sensationail Nailtural Born to Explore
Sinful Colors Hip To Be Square
This look is super simple — no tools needed. Just three fun nail polish shades & a steady hand. I had actually been wearing Sensationail Nailtural Cactus Me Outside (how fun is that name?) the previous day, with some chipping, so I decided to add some nail art on top to hide the chipping & it turned into such a cute look! Like I said, I love love love a good colour block!
What do you think of these nails? What three colours would you combine in a colour block design? Let me know in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! I hope the weather is more beautiful where you are — here in Halifax we have rain, & clouds & an overall dreary day. Well at least yesterday was beautiful!
How about I brighten things up a bit with some new nails? I actually did this look a few weeks ago, but (again) didn’t get around to posting it. I’m really feeling this coral/purple/turquoise colour scheme right now, & I have been putting out these shades a lot. This look was kind of me just playing around, but it turned out to pretty I decided to wear it!
I’ve been a little bit obsessed with dry brush designs lately, just because they make such a pretty back ground for nail art. I really like how the clean white lines stand out so much against the blurred pastel background. Originally I had thought about doing some more complicated tribal print, but I think the simplicity of a few geometric lines works way better. You see both the background & the graphic lines as well. I like it a lot. Plus it was a great excuse to work on free-handing straight lines, which is definitely something I find tricky.
Please excuse my horrendously dry hands. I’ve been struggling through finding the right hand creams to help under these extreme circumstances! I think I may have found my new favourite one, but I want to give it a couple weeks of real hands on testing before I make any posts about it. It’s actually one my Dad recommended to me. Got to love suggestions from Dad! Haha.
So what do you think about this design? Have you ever worn a dry brush design before? Do you like them on their own, or with nail art added on top. Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & for fun, share what hand cream is currently saving your dry hands right now!
Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Today I’ve got a beautiful colour block design to share with you, that I created using a few of the new Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure shades I received last month. I had this idea about using a few of the shades together to create a negative space geometric colour blocking look, & I’m quite excited because it turned out almost exactly like I had pictured it in my head (I love when that happens!)
I’m using feeling the delicate colour scheme of this manicure. I feel likes it subtle enough you could get away with it for any occasion — although I’ve never fretting too much about what I have on my nails in work situations, but I know for some people you can’t always go for crazy nail art. This look could definitely work in that kind of situation, or even if your not too keen on crazy nail art but want to give it a try.
& because I often get asked if I paint both hands, I though I’d include both hands. I almost always have both hands painted, but not always both hands with nail art. It honestly depends on how much time I think I’m going to have to do my nails & if I think I can get it done before either one of the kiddos wakes up. Because this design was pretty easy, I had no problem creating this look on both hands.

Good morning lovelies! Another day, another fun manicure created for Glam Nails Challenge August! I’ve really been having a lot of fun creating new designs for the challenge this month, getting out of my usual comfort zone.
Today’s manicure prompt is Stained Glass. I used to so shattered glass manicure a lot back in the day, but it’s been a while since I attempted one. Glitter placement can be a bit time consuming, so that’s probably why it’s been so long. So I was super excited to give it another try! & because the prompt is stained glass & not shattered glass, I decided to add some freehanded framing around my glitter to complete the look!
For this manicure, the polishes that I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Strengthening Base Coat
First time I’ve used acrylic paint for nail art in a while. I decided to use acrylic paint because I wasn’t sure if I was going to like the black framing & I wanted to be able to wash it off my base if I hated it, without destroying my base nail art. Thankfully I didn’t have to worry about hating it, because the black looked really good with the glitters!
This look just makes me so happy, & makes me realize I miss doing shattered glass manicures. Could you imagine this look with holo flakes/glitters? I’m getting Fall manicure inspiration with maybe like an emerald green & maybe some negative space with the glitters.
Ooooh I can see it now! I can’t wait!

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Today I’ve got a fun nail art look to share with you featuring the whole range of polishes from the brand new Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Neon collection for Summer 2019.
This collection was sent to me courtesy of Sally Hansen Canada. The PR package was just adorable & included a super cute neon yellow Aldo bag. I’ve been seriously craving neons since the weather started warming up, so receiving this collection was beyond exciting & I couldn’t wait to start playing around with these polishes!
It’s been a while since I did a complicated freehand look that wasn’t floral, so I was a bit nervous about my freehand lines. But I was so happy with how these turned out! These polishes are so bright & colourful, & just make me feel serious Summer vibes! 🕶☀️ Just makes me want to break out out my favourite bikini, throw on my sunbird, & take a trip to the beach.
I have actual swatches of these shades coming up, but I couldn’t wait to create some fun nail art. I’m looking forward to a whole bunch more of nail art looks to come!
If you’re looking for these vibrant Sally Hansen Canada Miracle Gel shades, you can find them in stores. Shoppers Drug Mart currently has them available in stores & on their website for $12.99. I’m not 100% sure if these are a Canadian exclusive, but I would definitely check out stores as these shades will be popping up in stores as the Summer continues!
