Pinky Stripes

Hello lovelies & happy, happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a lovely day.

This week is almost over — & so is this month! Hard to believe we’re already a month in 2021. But I’m very excited it’s almost February because that means all the Valentine’s Day looks! I’m also planning on participating in GlamNailsChallengeFebrury which has some pretty awesome prompts!

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shiny Top Coat
  • Londontown — Jane Austen
  • Londontown — Bell Flower
  • Londontown — Opal
  • Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Clean Slate
  • Sally Hansen CSM Ruby Doo
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush (COFFEE10 saves you 10% on your purchase!)

Vertical stripes are such an easy & cute nail art look — plus they have the added bonus of giving your nail the illusion of looking longer! Which I’m always here for, especially right now when the Winter cold is leaving my nails brittle & peel-y, so they’re not growing long like I would like. I also feel like this colour combination is a great one for Valentine’s Day, with the combinations of pinks & purples.

This time of year is the only time of year when I wear this much pink on my nails. But I’m definitely not complaining! Also currently planning another Valentine’s Day inspired Swatch Sunday post with some shades I’m loving for the big day!

Freehand Hearts 💗

Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone has had a lovely start to their week so far. I had yesterday off so I spent the day watching season 2 of Vanderpump Rules & dealing with organizing an excessive amount of clothing I’ve been neglecting for the last few weeks.

I also have been thinking & planning for some Valentine’s Day nail art looks! So I figured why not start now—after all, January doesn’t call for much nail art inspo.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
  • Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shiny Top Coat
  • Londontown USA Opal
  • L’Oréal Vintage Vinyl
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Get Mod
  • Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Peony Origins
  • Starrily Vantablack
  • NailStuff.ca 4mm Micro Detail Brush (COFFEE10 saves you 10%!)
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio

This is the first time I’ve attempted freehanded hearts in a long, long time & I’m so beyond happy with how they turned out! I used a base of Londontown Opal as it was such a beautiful shade, perfect for a romantic design like this. I had this idea in my head, & I am really really happy with how it turned out! This would totally be a cute Valentine’s Day look for anyone who doesn’t want to go over the top with pink! You get a little bit of pink, but the grey, & white & black really keeps it from being too over the top girlie (I think.) But you could definitely do a variety of colour combinations.

What do you think about this heart design? Have you already started to think about potential Valentine’s Day designs? Let me know what you think down in the comments, & what nail art looks your planning for February! 💗

SWATCH SUNDAY — Londontown USA Winners Finds

Hello lovelies & happy Sunday!

Today we’re in uncharted territory—I have 3 shades from a brand I’ve never tried before: Londontown USA. Last week, I visited my local Winners to see what beauties I could find in the clearance section, & found a ton of beauties I just have to bring home with me, including a three pack of these Londontown USA shades.

These three shades were packaged together in a set called “Lilac Mini Trio” but after looking it up online, it looks like they’re all from different collections.

So let’s check out the swatches!
