Good morning lovelies & happy Thursday! I hope everyone’s week has been going well!
Today I’ve got a super pretty manicure to share with you, & one of my absolute favourite nail art designs — FLORAL! I was feeling inspired by the beautiful Good Kind Pure polishes I shared in my Swatch Sunday post, & naturally they were calling for me create a pretty floral look with them! & oh how I adore the outcome; it looks like vintage wallapper, in the best possible way.
For this look, the polishes I used were:
- Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Hardener
- Top Coat: Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Top Coat
- Sally Hansen GKP Almond Tan
- Sally Hansen GKP Pink Cardamom
- Sally Hansen GPK Eco-Rose
- Sally Hansen GKP Peony Origins
- Sally Hansen GKP Beet It
- Sally Hansen GKP Golden Quartz
- NailStuff.ca Mermaid Tail Brush Trio (I used the 7mm liner brush)
- NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio

Usually I try to paint pretty realistic designs when it comes to floral (green for leaves for example) but I really wanted to use all the Good Kind Pure shades for this design. & I actually really love how these turned out! The dusty colour scheme definitely reminds me of vintage wallpaper, or that couch that everyone’s grandmother had (you know the one). But I really, really, really love it. Plus I never get tired of painting roses on my nails.
Ahhh, I just love these so much! The pink roses, the burgundy leaves. Gives me those Spring vibes I desperately need as we slide full force into Winter now. We have like 3 winter storms headed out way in the coming week or so, so I’m probably going to pull all the floral in my closet I own so I can just live in denial about the fact Spring is not-so-close.
What do you think about this floral look using these new shades from Sally Hansen? I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with them, & still have a few more looks to share, including the perfect dotticure for Valentine’s Day!
Also let me know any tips you have for escaping the Winter Blahs!
Good morning lovelies & happy Sunday! Today I’m really really excited because I have some brand new nail polishes to share with you from our favourites over at Sally Hansen — 6 shades from their brand new Good Kind Pure line, as well as the hardner base coat & corresponding top coat!
This 100% vegan nail polish line boasts itself as being “nothing but colour” — it is 15 free which means it does not contain any of the icky things nail polishes sometimes contain like sulfates, parabens, toluene, etc. It also states that it is plant based. Honestly, this is definitely the kind of polish that I look for when buying polish to put on my kiddos, as I definitely prefer to use something on them that is more natural than what I might use on myself.
First impressions — the polishes themselves don’t appear to be as stinky as regular nail polish, which I love. The brushes are nice & wide which I always appreciate as it require less strokes. For all my swatches, I did one coat of the Good Kind Pure hardner, polish, & finished it off with the top coat.
