Hello lovelies! Switching things up a bit & posting on a Saturday because I’m starting to feel better from my head cold, & really wanted to show off the nails I wore for my birthday on Thursday!
I really wanted to do some chevron moons, because it’s been a while, & after a paired the shades together I realized the colour scheme reminds me a lot of the movie version Wonder Woman costume! & even though I didn’t set out to create Wonder Woman nails for my birthday, I thought it was very fitting for my birthday!
Oh man, I seriously always forget just how much I adore a good chevron until I haven’t worn one in a while & then I’m reminded why they are my favourite kind of design! & the colours are just so perfect for Autumn (& you know, meeting up with the Justice League to save the world.) It was the perfect choice for celebrating my 34th year.
What do you think about this look? Do you usually chose a special look for your birthday nails? Let me know down in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Hope everyone’s week is going okay so far. Here is Halifax the weather is very, very, VERY wet — it’s a very good day for a snuggly sweater & a lot of hot tea!
Today I’m sharing another look created for this month’s #GlamNailsChallenge. The next is prompt is Sugar Skull, which was one I was quite nervous about. I’ve seen lots of tutorials for how to create a sugar skull look, but they’re not as easy to do as they let on. Haha.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Hard As Nails
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
Sally Hansen CSM Belle Of The Ball
Essie White Page
Color Club Nail Art Club Duo pens in assorted colours (green, pink, blue)
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art pens in fuchsia & purple.
This was my second attempt at a sugar skull design, since my first one was a little wonky. It’s not perfect, but I do like how it turned out. I decided to go a more Jack Skellington direction for my initial face, then added the colourful details. I feel like it gets the Sugar Skull theme across nicely!
What do you think about this sugar skull look? Do you like accent nail designs like this, or full nail designs? Let me know in the comments below!
I can’t believe it’s Tuesday! I totally meant to post these nails yesterday, but between work & being totally run down from never ending allergies, I’ve been absolutely exhausted. Today I’m sharing another design for #GlamNailsChallengeOct: ghosts. 👻 My design was partially inspired by an old design by @betina_goldstein.
I was totally in love with the original design that inspired me, & I’m quite in love with how my turned out. Sometimes I love going spooky with nail art, & sometimes I’d rather keep things a little more simple & subdued. I just think these are the cutest little ghosts ever!
What do you think of this little ghost design? Have you started any Halloween nail art yet? Let me know in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Wednesday! Today I’m sharing another design for the GlamNailsChallenge for October which is Black Cats 🖤
If you don’t know, I absolutely adore black cats, & I’m lucky enough to have a beautiful black furry baby. So I was very excited to create some black cat inspired nails. I thought about going full spooky Halloween with this look, but I decided to go a little understated & more glam (but still channeling Autumn.)
Again, I know I say this all the time, but I’m totally obsessed with how these nails turned out! My little accent kitties just make me so happy, & I like the minimalistic look of the cats against my base of Essie Ballet Slippers. I have to say, I think I’m going to need it pick up a big bottle of it because it’s becoming one of my favourite bases for nail art. The pale base just makes my little kitties jump out!
Also loving the black & white against the shiftiness of ORLY Brilliant Boysenberry. I honestly own a few bottles from different brands that are all dupes of this shade, but it’s such a good reddish/burgundy duochrome that I can’t help but buy more!
What do you think about my black cat design? Would you rock this design on your nails? Let me know down in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & Happy Monday! Hope everyone had a lovely weekend. I had Saturday off work, so the whole Fam took a trip to visit the Zoo. It was an awesome little adventure & the kids loved seeing all the big animals including lions & tigers!
Today I’m joining in on the GlamNailsChallenge for October! You might remember last year I participated a few times, & I kind of missed the challenge, so I figured what would be better than jumping in on the October challenge — after all, I knew it would have lots of spooky & fun prompts.
Our first prompt? Pumpkins! 🎃 Very fitting for October.
Not going to lie, I’m seriously obsessed with these nails.
First I’m wearing Buffy The Violet Slayer which is fitting as I’ve been rewatching Buffy again. Second, how adorable did these pumpkins turn out? This is reminiscent of a design I did, like, 5 October’s ago, & I think they turned out too cute! You can never have too much pumpkin in your life… including on your nails! 🧡🎃 also I totally adore the combination of pumpkin & orange together. It just looks so good!
What do you think of my version of pumpkin nails? Are you excited that I am participating in GlamNailsChallengeOctober? Let me know which prompt you’re excited to see, & check out the other nails by clicking on the #glamnailschallengeoct hashtag on Instagram!
