Aztec inspired chevron moons. 

I’ve been trying to wear older polishes in my stash a little more lately. Sometimes I forget I own certain polishes I’ve had for a while (like 4+ years Haha.) I guess that’s what happens when your polish is quickly approaching the 1000s. 

When I first started growing my stash, Essence was my go to. Their Color & Go line was one of my favourites, and I still adore (almost) all of their polishes with all of my heart. My base is Essence Color and Go Luxury Secret, a dark metallic grey which I picked up when Essence first showed up at Shoppers Drug Mart with their cute little mini round bottles. 

  
The polishes I used for this manicure were:

  • Essence Color & Go Luxury Secret
  • China Glaze Dune Our Thing 
  • Milani Nail Art with precision brush (in black) 
  • Essie Good to Go
  • Kiss Perfect Design tip Guides (chevrons) 
  • Small sized dotting toll

 
  

This design turned out very tribal/Aztec and I dig it. I also adore how well China Glazs Dune Our Thing really pops against Luxury Secret. Pink and dark grey are just such a fantastic combo together. 

What do you think of this Color combo and design? What are some of your favourite forgotten polish favourites? 

Let me know in the comments below!

And just for fun, here’s my OOTD and NOTD. Cosy blush sweater is from Ardene, black Jeggings are Garage and black combat boots are also Ardene. I love when my nails and my outfit compliment each other so well by accident!) 

 
Have a lovely Tuesday! 💗

Another go at Saran Wrap nail art 

Happy Saturday lovelies! Hope you’re having a fantastic start to your weekend. And if you’re  one of those unlucky souls currently in the path of that awful Blizzard, I hope you’re staying warm and safe all tucked in with plenty of Storm Chips!

 

Today I’ve got some Spring-y Saran wrap nails to share with you, which I haven’t posted in quite a while. I love how quick and easy they look. For version of the Saran Wrap nails, I like to paint my polish directly on my crinkled up plastic wrap then dab it on my base colour. It creates a much different look! If you ever want me to create a pictorial tutorial for the technique, let me know and I definitely will (videos still escape me!).

So what do you think of this manicure? I’m feeling the January Nail Art blues hard. I don’t find there anything inspiring about these cold awful days. =(

Bring on February and all the Valentines Days manicures a girl can handle! ❤
