Metallic Purple Galaxies 🌌

Hello loves — hope your week is off to a lovely start.

Today I’m sharing the look I did featuring my latest Swatch Sunday pick as the base of. I teased how excited I was to share this nail art, so I’m really excited for you to see! It’s been ages upon ages since the last time I featured a galaxy design on my nails — like 2019 or so — so this was long, long overdue.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine 
  • Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Top Coat
  • Rimmel London 660 Climax
  • Essence Galaxy Flakes Rock My World
  • OPI Miss Piggy’s Big Number
  • OPI Peace Love & OPI
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Buffalo Nickel
  • Starrily Space Debris
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio
  • NailStuff.ca 4mm Micro Detail Brush
  • Latex Free Make Up Sponge (mine are random Dollarama ones)

So, full disclosure: I did these nails at like 12:30 at night, half asleep, & with horrible lighting, so they’re not perfect. But I do think the combination of colours is awesome. I love the purple on purple. My stars are a little wonky, & I’m not sure silver was the right choice for them (I probably should have went with black instead) but I do think the whole look turned out very pretty. I really do always forget just how much I love galaxy nails until I wear them again.

Plus they’re a nail art look that works just as awesome on short nails as they do on long nails.

Funky Green Star Swirls

Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday!

Hope everyone’s week has been lovely so far. It’s feeling sunny & Summery lately, so I decided to step out of my nail polish safe zone with some green toned neon nails!

I think I’ve mentioned before, I don’t often wear green polish unless it’s Christmas or St. Patrick’s Day, but when I saw these two colours sitting in my stash, I thought it would be fun to pair them together.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine 
  • Top Coat: Essence Extreme GEL Top
  • OPI Gargantuan Green Grape
  • OPI Nature Strong Cactus What You Preach
  • UR Sugar Star Swirl Nail Vinyls

Lately I’ve been feeling a bit of a nail art rut, mostly because I’ve been lacking in time, & what time I do have I feel beyond exhausted. But, I’ve been missing using my nail vinyls a lot so I’ve been going through & trying to make an effort to use those things I haven’t in a long time — like these Star nail vinyls I received forever ago from URSugar. Originally I had thought about doing a half moon look with these colours, but the star swirls were just so much more fun!

I thought the lighters green under this pretty mint was such a pop of colour. I just really love how vibrant these are. They were really fun to wear.

What do you think of this funky green star design? Do you like this green on green colour combo? Are you feeling the neon vibes? Let me know down in the comments below!

Negative Space & Purple Abstract

Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Hope everyone’s week is lovely so far. It’s almost the weekend, which is always exciting.

Todays look is a random one I came up with while in the middle of painting my nails. I was feeling a little stuck on what to paint on my nails, but was feeling purple, & somehow ended up with this slightly abstract purple look.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
  • Top Coat: Essence Extreme GEL Top
  • OPI Infinite Shine Sound of Vibrance
  • OPI Infinite Shine Mariachi Makes My Day
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush

How fun is this look?! Negative space has recaptured my heart, & I love the purple on purple look of these two shades together. They’re close enough they match very well, but enough of a difference they create this colour block look. Plus I love the abstract waves.

& I got a ton of compliments when I wore this design to work, which always makes me know I have a successful design! If people notice when I’m serving them, I know my nails are perfect!

What do you think about this look? Would you wear them on your nails?

Summer Geometric Vibes

Features Gifted Product in Exchange for Content

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!

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: OPI Natural Nail Base Coat
  • Top Coat: OPI Nature Strong Top Coat
  • OPI Nature Strong Cactus What You Preach
  • OPI Nature Strong Make My Daisy
  • OPI Nature Strong Emflowered
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush

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?
