Good morning lovelies & happy February! It’s officially the month of love. 💗 But before I jump headfirst into all pink, all the time, I thought I would share a look a I created a week or so ago, when I was feeling the grey January blahs.
Today’s look started out as just a grey smooshy design, which was lovely, but looked like the perfect base from some tile inspired nails! So I pulled out one of my many stamping plates I don’t use nearly enough, & switched things up!
Seriously, how pretty is this greyscale look? I love how the base isn’t super in your face, & then the black really pops against it. Completely achieves the look I was trying to accomplish, & who wouldn’t want tile like this in their house? I know I certainly would! Plus it looks gorgeous posed against the greenery in my background (a plant shelf at work, right beside the window — the perfect nail art background!)
What do you think about this greyscale quatrefoil design? Would you wear something like this?
It’s been absolute ages since I put up a Fashion Friday post, so I thought a quick OOTD post would be fun. I recently went through & organized my closet (again!), so it’s been making me want to wear all the clothes I haven’t grabbed in a while. Like this cute polka dot blouse! It’s super old — pretty sure I first bought it in 2012-ish — & I haven’t grabbed it to wear in longer than I can remember! I would have loved to wear this outfit as a dress instead of with jeans, but when it’s -13 degrees outside, you have to make some adjustments.
Mostly that entails 3 pairs of tights under my jeans, & a lot of layers. Have I mentioned I miss Summer?
Have do you show off your personal style during the Winter months? Do you have any tricks for feeling cute without freezing? Tell me all your secrecy’s, & let me know what you think of this OOTD.
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! We’ve officially made it — the last day of #GlamNailsChallengeDec! Can you believe it? That means we’re just a few days away from 2020 being the past, & hopefully 2021 will hold exciting things.
But first we need some New Years Eve nails! Today’s prompt is New Years Celebration, & I was inspired my fireworks! Who doesn’t love setting off fireworks on New Years Eve — my dad always used to set off a grand show during our yearly celebrations, & they make me so happy! I can’t wait until my kids are a bit older, & we can set a few fireworks off in our backyard at midnight. In the meantime, I’ll celebrate with my firework inspired waterfall look.
Does that not totally look like cascading fireworks?! I love the waterfall look, & I haven’t done one in a while. I thought the combination of gold & silver over the navy blue would be the perfect New Years combination. & I got a ton of compliments on this look when I wore it to work, so I feel like I was successful!
This is probably one of my favourite New Years Eve looks I’ve ever done.
& with that, we’re officially done with #GlamNailsChallengeDec — which prompt was your favourite? Do you enjoy these challenges? Let me know in the comments below!
I’m super late posting these Christmas Present nails for #GlamNailsChallengeDec! I’ll blame it on a post Christmas sugar hangover haha. I can’t believe we’re already post-Christmas — this year is almost over. & we just have a few prompts left to go before this month (& year) is over!
Today’s look is definitely a simple one (again, post Christmas sugar hangover/exhaustion) but I think the simple pink ribbon over the holographic base is exactly how I would love to find all my presents under my tree.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Shiny Top Coat
Color Club Art Club Pink Pastel
This is probably one of the easiest nail art designs I’ve done this whole prompt! All you need is a nail art striper, & a steady hand. They were super quick to do too! & the colour combinations are endless—works for Christmas, birthdays, anything holiday involving presents. & I just adore it!
What do you think about this quick & easy Christmas Present nails? Have you been keeping an eye on all the beautiful designs on Instagram for #glamnailschallengeDec? There is just one prompt left to go, so stay tuned!
Hello lovelies! I hope everyone had a lovely & safe Christmas. We enjoyed our much quieter Christmas—figuratively speaking, of course. You know what happens when you give an almost 4 year old chocolate at 7am? A very long, loud, day haha.
Today is our last Swatch Sunday post of 2020, can you believe it? This year is officially almost over. All I can hope for 2021 is health, happiness, & the world finds a way to be a little more peaceful. In the meantime, I thought it would be fun to end the year with a polish classic (& a perfect New Year’s Eve shade!): ORLY Mirrorball.
3 coats, no top coat.
According to my Google research, ORLY Mirrorball was originally released in 2014 as part of their holiday collection. I picked up my bottle on clearance at the end of that year, so it’s been around a long time! It’s also one of those shades I always come back to when I’m feeling the need for some bling, because if it’s one thing this polish has, is bling!
As you can see, Mirrorball is a silver liner holo polish with large hex holographic polishes. For my swatches, you’re seeing 3 coats of polish over my base coat. Usually, I tend to wear this shade over another silver base so I don’t have to use as many coats, but for my swatches, I wanted to capture how the shade looks like all on its own.
This shade is so sparkly, I just love it so much. I think it’s still available for purchase, with listings on Amazon & ORLY’s website as well, so if you don’t have this shade in your life already, I definitely recommend picking it up!
What do you think of ORLY Mirrorball? Would you wear this beautiful holographic shade? & Let me know what you’re planning on wearing for New Years Eve!
