Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! I hope it’s as sunny & beautiful where you are, as it is here in Halifax.
Today I have a fun stamped nail are look to share with you! I know… who is she? It’s been a bit since my last foray into stamping, & I was looking for a quick & easy nail art look, so I landed on this stamped pattern. & I have to say, I’m really happy with how the finished look turned out!
I was super pleased with how these turned out! I love, love, LOVED this stamping plate from BODICO, but if you remember from this (very old) review, I had a bit of trouble getting a clear pattern to show up. So I was super pleased that I got such a clear & crisp image for this design.
I absolutely adore the contrast of purple over the pale blue. It really pops! We all know blue & purple are probably two of my favourite nail polish shades, so pairing them together just makes for the perfect combination.
& this geometric pattern is just so much fun — I love that it almost looks like flowers.
What do you think about this geometric stamped design? Do you love the end result as much as I do? I always forget about my other nail art tools like my stamping plates, or even my nail vinyls, so I’m really trying to make a conscious effort to pull them out more. We will see how successful I am, haha.
Hello lovelies & happy Friday! I hope everyone is having a lovely week — & is very excited about the weekend to be! It’s been so beautiful around here this week, I’ve been able to break out my favourite Summer dresses. It’s been awesome.
So obviously it’s been inspiring my nail polish choices. & thankfully I have those three beautiful OPI Nature Strong polishes from TradeSecrets.ca that are really perfect for Summer!
How fun is this colour combination? I really like how the pink & the yellow pop again this base. Also this aqua/turquoise is such a poppy colour — I love it as my base shade. It’s such a good colour. Also these geometric lines are giving me old school 90s solo cup vibes.
What do you think about this look? Are you, too, feeling the Summer vibes with these warmer temperatures?
Let me know what shades you’re wearing right now to embrace Sunny days?

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! It’s officially half way through the week, & honestly it feels like it’s speeding by. Maybe because this week has had hints of Spring, not just Winter storm after winter storm.
Today I have a fun & funky nail art look to share for Glam Nails Challenge March. Today’s prompt is Geometric, & it’s definitely been a while since my last geometric design, so I was definitely excited to get creative! I used to love coming up with designs like this, so it was fun to get a little old school with my nail art.
How much fun are these? I love them because the colours aren’t necessarily ones that I would normally pair together, but they’re so much fun! It’s definitely a more striking look than I’ve been wearing lately, & just felt so much fun on my nails. Plus the black looks really good as the outline.
Honestly, when I was doing these I really wasn’t sure if I was going to like them, which happens sometimes, but when they were all finished, they made me so happy. Does that ever happen to anyone else? You’re in the middle of your mani & you’re like “I’m not sure I’m going to like these…” but then when you’re finished, you’re just so in love. Maybe I’m the only one.
What do you think of this geometric look for Glam Nails Challenge March? Would you wear this design? Are you fan of bold nail art looks like this? Let me know down in the comments below!
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!
