Hope everyone is having a lovely week so far. Today I’m pumped to share with you another design for Glam Nails Challenge September: Night Sky. I can’t even remember the last time I did night sky/galaxy nails, so I was really excited for this prompt. It’s been too, too long. Plus my nails are feeling super long right now, & I always think galaxy designs look amazing on long nails.
How cute did these turn out?! Plus I got to try out a bunch of my new shades that I’ve purchased recently — I’ve been on a bit of nail polish buying spree — so I combined they into this look. I love the different levels on blue, & that the blues are most complimentary. It gives it more of the appearance of an actual sky you could be looking at from your backyard, rather than being in space. Also how adorable is this little crescent moon that I hand painted? It definitely took me a second to get it perfect-ish, but I love how it turned out.
I just love them!
How are we feeling about this manicure? Do you like how they turned out? Are you excited about the prompts to come? Don’t forget to check out #glamnailschallengeSeptembe on Instagram to see everyone else’s awesome nail art looks for this prompt as well!
Can you believe it? we’re midway through June! Which means I’m in full all-floral-all-the-time mode. I’m sure you’re not surprised. Today’s nail art look was actually a quick nail art design. I had painted my nails, & wanted to add a little something using my nail art pens, which turned into a full floral mani. Sometimes, I just can’t be stopped haha. But I actually really like how these turned out; usually I go for a more rose centric floral design, but I wanted to create these almost daisies, & I think they turned out really beautiful. & I did them completely without any true nail art brushes.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nailgrowth Miracle
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Fuchsia
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Purple
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen Green
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pen White
Art Club Nail Art Duo Neon Green
OPI Where Did Suzi’s Man-go
First off, I know these are not my most perfect floral, but I’m really kind of digging them. My little daisies turned out so colourful & cute. I would totally wear this pattern as a full sundress too. It’s all floral, all the time over here. Also, I feel like these nail art pens are so underrated & deserve a comeback. While my nail art brushes will always be the best for nail art, using these pens can still create an awesome pattern! Also they are still number one for dotticures.
What do you think about this cute little floral design? Is there anyone else who loves these nail art pens like I do? The Sally Hansen ones were always my go-to (I have so many), but I haven’t found them for sale in a very long time. Does anyone know of any else nail art pens you can buy? I’d totally be down for adding more to my collection for quick designs like this! Let me know down in the comments below.
Hello lovelies & happy Thursday. I’m another day late on posting this prompt for #GlamNailsChallengeFeb, so I apologize. It’s been one of those busy kind of weeks!
The latest prompt for #GlamNailsChallenge is Bears. I don’t think I’ve ever done a “bear” design before, but I had this cute panda image on a stamping plate I bought from Essence a few years ago, so I decided it would be perfect for this design!
Essence Stamp It Stampy Design Plate (no longer available)
I started off with my tie dye base & then decided to stamp the panda over top. I figured pastel was more fun than simple black & white! I thought it was a fun look. The image was so teeny it was a bit difficult picking up completely, but it turned out cute over all!

Hello lovelies & Merry Christmas Eve! Hope everyone is having a not too stressful start to their Christmas (or December 24th, for those who don’t celebrate.)
Today I have one final pre Christmas look to share with you — some Christmas ornament nails. This is actually a recreation/new take on a design I did five years ago. I thought a new version would be a fun design!
I’m actually obsessed with these. They turned out so perfect—-better than I had even imagined! I really wanted to do some kind of ornament design, & these just turned out so cute. I also didn’t have a ton of time to do my nails, & all the painting was (relatively) quick! Also I’m super proud of my teeny tiny little designs on the ornaments themselves, mostly because I was stumped on what designs to even put!
It’s the perfect Christmas Eve design, especially for the hours of wrapping I have to do tonight after the kids go to bed! Haha.
I hope everyone has the most lovely next couple days filled. I know this year is so much different than Christmas past, & so many people are away from the people they love most, but I’m sending love to all, & wishing no matter your situation, your days are filled with peace.
Hello lovelies & happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely & not too stressful weekend. We went out on a family (car) adventure to look at Christmas lights, which was lovely, & one of my favourite Christmas activities!
Today I’m sharing another beautiful Christmas-y look for #GlamNailsChallengeDec: Wrapping Paper.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
Top Coat: Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Glossy Top Coat
I loved how open this prompt was, because there were so many options! I decided I wanted to go with a nude-ish base, a little sparkle, & some Christmas-y stripes. It’s the kind of wrapping paper I would love to see my gifts wrapped under the tree. I loved the shimmer from the glitter (Essie Sparkle On Top) & the bit of shimmer in the nail polish.
There is just something about the subtle ness of the nude base, the bit of sparkle & the stripes that I just love.
What do you think about my wrapping paper inspired nails? Would you rock this design? Have you figured out your Christmas nail look? Let me know in the comments below!
