Hello beauties & happy Tuesday! I hope everyone’s weekend was lovely, & for those still in the grips of Winter like myself, not too snowy. Today I have another Spring inspired manicure to distract myself from the snow.
For a while, I wasn’t really in a floral kind of mood. You might have noticed, though, things have changed because I’m feeling floral inspired again & loving it. Today is another floral accent nail look, this time featuring one of my all time favourite things to freehand: roses. Seriously, these feel so romantic & lovely, I just can’t get over how pretty they turned out. Like my last floral look, all the shades I used for this design are from my Essie collection.
Come on… I mean, how pretty did those roses turn out? I seriously could have worn these nails for forever. Or, at least, a week. Which is basically like forever when it comes to me & nail art. I’m just so proud of how they turned out, & I’m already planning on more floral nails in the very near future. I mean, Winter doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere, so I guess I’ll just have to pretend on my nails.
What do you think of these romantic floral accent nails? Do you love them as much as I love them? Let me know all your thoughts in the comments below!
Hello loves & happy Thursday! & happy March 2nd. February is now behind us, & this year is already speeding by. How is it possible we’re 3 months into 2023 already?
But you know what it does mean? That we’re only 18 days away from Spring! I’ll enjoy that fact while I munch on my storm chips & prepare for another 20-25cm of snow to fall here in Halifax. I’ve also decided to distract myself from the impending snowstorm with some floral on my nails. If there is one thing that can distract me from the fact that Winter has really just started here, it’s a cute simple floral nail art design.
I’m a little rusty on my flower painting, as you can see, but I still think these turned out cute. I went much more simple for this look, aiming — kind of — for like a 70s wallpaper design. Not my most favourite floral ever, but still a fun look to wear. I have no doubt there is going to be a lot of floral on my nails in the near future, so I hope you’re ready.
All floral, all the time.
Well maybe not all the time.
What do you think about this simple easy groovy floral look? Is this a good nail art design to usher in the new month, & hopefully Spring? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & let me know what Spring nail art trends you’re loving right now.
Hello beauties & happy Thursday! I hope everyone is having a lovely week so far. Mine has been busy, & we’re anxiously awaiting another snowstorm. But at least I have some cute nails to show off!
Today’s look was kind of an experiment, I guess. I was just playing around on my nails, but I liked them so much I decided to wear them as a full manicure. I love when that happens! Especially because I am in a nail art rut right now, & struggling with ideas.
This feels very regal, like something you would see on the dress of Victorian royalty. The colours, & the gold accents — it all feels very royal. It’s a fun look, & relatively quick to do. I also haven’t really dug into my old Quo by ORLY polishes in a while, so I was happy to pull out a few I haven’t worn in a while.
Purple & gold is always a solid colour combination.
What do you think about this colour combination & nail art look? Are you a fan of this purple & gold combination? Let me know all your thoughts down below, & let me know what you’re wearing on your nails lately.
I’ve been starting to feel myself drawn to neon lately, so I would be prepared for some fun neon looks in the future!
Anyone else feeling the full on February blahs? I feel like it’s translating to my nails, because post-Valentine’s Day, I’m struggling to think of what to wear on my nails! Too early to go too hard on the Spring looks, but I don’t really want to do Winter designs either.
I am feeling stumped.
But you know what never fairs me? My striper brush. I had painted my nails & thought about doing a single gold line — like this — but decided I was feeling something a bit more abstract so that’s what we went with! & I love how they turned out, especially with the addition of the matte top coat.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
Top Coat: Seche Vite Fast Dry Top Coat
Matte Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Matte Top Coat
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Trouble Maker
How beautiful is this dark purple & gold together? I’m kind of sad that Trouble Maker was discontinued from the Sally Hansen CSM line, because it’s such a beautiful perfect purple. & my bottle is starting to sadly get low. That’s the hardest part of being a nail polish addict… you find those polishes that you love to wear so much, & they never stick around forever. Although Essie Kimono Over is a close second in my heart, so at least I still have her for my dark purple craving days!
What do you think about this purple & gold geometric look? Are you a fan of these kinds of designs, or do you prefer a bit more complicated nail art? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & what nail art you think that February calls for!
Hello beauties & happy Thursday! I’ve been struck down by a cold from Hell, but that doesn’t mean I can’t show off some pretty (early) Spring nails — right? Especially since it’s supposed to be relatively warm today.
It feels like ions since I last did any floral. Floral has always been one of my favourite go to nail art looks, but I think I went through a floral rut for a while, because I was not inspired to do any on my nails. But I’m back, & I’m showing off the prettiest floral in hopes that Mother Nature gets the message.
Okay, first off I apologize for my shitty pictures because I’ve been having photo troubles lately. My photo quality has been dipping dramatically, so I might switch back to just using my photo box & daytime lamp for a while to see if it makes a difference. Second — I’m so happy with how this look turned out! It definitely took some time to get the colouring right on the flower. But I decided not to go super complicated in the background. & I’m so happy with how cute they look!
What do you think of this floral look? Have you missed the floral as much as I did? Let me know down in the comments below!
