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!
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?

Hello beauties & happy Wednesday! Hopefully a beautiful sunny Wednesday, but either way I hope you’re having a lovely start to your day. I’m excited because I have a beautiful design to share with you for the next prompt of Glam Nails Challenge March: Abstract. & when I saw that prompt, I knew exactly whose nails I was going to use as the inspiration for my abstract nails.
Grape Fizz Nails always comes up with the most beautiful & unique abstract looks, so I took a bag from her book, & decided to go with a pastel inspired abstract design, with a little bit of gold for good measure!
How fun & pastel are these? The colours look so beautiful together, & the gold just adds that extra something special. They turned out just so beautiful — I can’t get over it! Plus paired with some sunshine yesterday, they were really giving full on Spring vibes.
Can you believe that we only have 2 more prompts for Glam Nails Challenge March? I can’t believe how quickly this month seems to be going, & how close we are to Spring dresses, Easter, & days upon days of beautiful Spring weather.
Hello lovelies & happy Thursday. It’s almost the weekend… who else is excited?! Of course, they’re calling for (another) big Winter storm Friday night into Saturday. So that’s… fun. I’m so over Winter & snow it’s not even funny! But you know what I’m not tired of–fun, bright nails!
This time, I was feeling some colours I haven’t worn in ages. Coral used to be a go-to nail polish shade for me, & I’m not sure when that changed. So when going through my stash, I was feeling some coral-y shades, & this is what I ended up with. Also, yes, more abstract stripes because they’re just so easy to do.
I actually ended up wearing these nails for 4 days, which is unheard of for me. Usually I’m changing my nails after day 2, maybe day 3. But I loved these so much I couldn’t actually bring myself to change them until they were really actually chipped.
These nails remind me of nails I did years ago, that I was equally in love with. Those were definitely the inspiration for this look. I know these kind of manis are super popular on Instagram right now, & some people might be slightly sick of them, but to me they will never get old. They’re just so easy, & funky. You have no idea how many compliments I got for this look! It definitely made my nail art loving heart happy.
What do you think about this design? Do you enjoy these abstract stripes?

Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! & happy February. One month of Winter down, only a few more to go. & we’re officially into another favourite month of mine for nail art — bring on ALL the Valentine’s Day nail art.
However, before I jump full tilt into all pink all the time, I thought I would share this fun blue swirly look I recently did on my nails. I’ve talked endlessly about my love for these swirly abstract stripes, so when I’m stuck on inspiration I always turn to this look. & yep — went with blue again! I was feeling some fun Essie blues, & I feel like they pulled everything together so well.
The best part of this style is how easy it is to muck it up. You just add more layers, & (usually) it’ll bring everything together. The sheer base of Essie Ballet Flats, which I haven’t worn in a really long time, just helps the colours pop out a bit. You see the lines a bit better, I find, with a more sheer, or naked base.
I also did a cute version on my daughter who loved mine so much she wanted to match.I shared a Reel on instagram of them, if you’re curious. Also, this is a surprisingly easy look to do on a two year old, if you can get them to sit still long enough haha.
What do you think about these blue swirly stripes? Are you still a fan of this style of nail art — I know they’ve been really, really popular on Instagram lately, but I don’t think I’ll ever be sick of them. They just are too easy, & too cute! They make me very happy.
