Hello lovelies — happy June 1st! & happy National Nail Polish Day!
Here we are, almost at Summer! Can you believe it?
I feel like May has really, really sped by. Which is crazy, considering we spent it in lockdown here. But it’s officially June, things are finally starting to open up, & it’s also National Nail Polish Day. So far, everything about June is looking up!
In honour of my new favourite holiday, I decided I needed to do one of my favourite designs, in some bright crazy colours. It’s been ages since I wore any kind of chevron moon, so it was long overdue. & who doesn’t love some neon!
Hello brightness, my old friend. It’s been ages since I wore anything this neon, & it’s been way overdue. Also it gave me a reason to test out my new half chevron vinyls I picked up from Beyond the Nail a few weeks back. I’m actually really loving the shape of them, because I feel like they give me a really good chevron shape — sometimes I get frustrated with vinyls that are a bit more rounded, & you end up with more of a half moon than a chevron moon. These look great though, & we’re super easy to use!
What do you think of my mani pick for National Nail Polish Day? Do you have plans to celebrate today? I do—but they’re top secret! I promise I’ll be able to share soon though!
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 Tuesday. Another new week is here, & for the first time in months I feel like Spring might actually be really here. Our flowers are ever starting to bloom in our front gardens! So it’s inspiring me to pull out all the pastel, Spring-y shades I can find. 🌸
You know how much I love my chevron moons, so I decided it would be fun to pair a few shades I don’t wear to often. After my browse through my nail polish stash, I decided I should really make a better attempt at wearing more of my nail polishes.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat:Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Hardener
Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint
China Glaze Ever Glaze Don’t Grape About It
Kiss Products Nail Art Striper in White
It’s been a while since I attempted to freehand a chevron moon, but I think my hands are getting steadier because they turned out pretty good! I used to do them all the time, before I had nail vinyls in my life. & while I do love the precision that nail vinyls give, sometimes I’m too impatient to wait for my base colour to dry. This was one of the moments, & I’m so happy that I didn’t muck them up! Because I’m absolutely in love with the end result.
Who doesn’t love a good chevron moon? Just look at that combo. The purple & green, the clean lines. I’m just really digging this design.
What do you think about these chevron moons? What Spring polishes have you been wearing most often lately? Let me know down in the comments below!
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday. Hope everyone is doing well — don’t forget to wash your hands!
How is life where you are today? We got snow, so it feels like Winter is back again & I’m so unimpressed. But you know what does make me happy? Holo. I did these nails a few weeks back, before chaos really ensued because I was really craving some holo, & I’m glad I did because look how beautiful they turned out!
I love chevron moons. I love chevron moons. I love chevron moons! 🌙 Next up maybe some holo chevron claws. The possibilities are endless, & I definitely have lots of time to paint my nails right now (& it keeps my brain calm.)
Gah, I just love holo. Look at those rainbows! 🌈 Way better than drab & grey & yucky like today’s weather we’re currently experiencing. We’ve been trying to get as much sunshine & fresh air as we can, mostly in our own backyard. Tomorrow is supposed to be bright & sunny, & somewhat warm, so we should be able to hang out outside for a good portion of tomorrow. Maybe I’ll pull out some more holo for tomorrow!
What do you think about this mani? What are you wearing on your nails right now?
Hello lovelies & Happy Friday. I am currently on vacation with my kiddos for the next week & a half so my posts are (probably) not going to be as regular as they normally are, but I did bring my China Glaze Gone West polishes with me, so I’m hoping to have a few fun designs to share with you!
First up, a manicure I created prior to going away. I posted on Instagram what design I should do & the overwhelming vote was for some chevron moons! I will admit, it’s been a while since my last chevron moon design–in fact, it was in May–so a new version was way over due. & since I’m all about the Fall polish right now, I had to use some of these awesome China Glaze colours. Because, I’ll be honest… I’m kind of obsessed with this entire collection.
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: Franken Base Coat creation
Base Coat: Quo by ORLY Bonder
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
China Glaze Lawless & Flawless
China Glaze Take The High Rodeo
China Glaze Cowboy Bye
The Base Coat Stacked Chevron vinyls
I talked in my Swatch Sunday post about how good I thought that Lawless & Flawless would be for negative space designs, & I was right. It made such a good middle layer for this look, but the shimmer in the polish still comes through. Gorgeous. Also I debated on which shades to use for this look, & went back & forth between Cowboy Bye, Cattle Drive Me Crazy & Buffalo Bills Bills Bills, but in the end my favourite won out because I thought that the underlying shimmer of Cowboy Bye just seemed to compliment the pink in Take The High Rodeo.
& you know what? I was definitely right. Just look how well these three go together!
Okay guys, I know I’ve been saying I’ve been feeling the Fall vibes since, like, the middle of July but I’m serious now–I am so ready for it! My nails are channeling Autumn hard, & all this girl needs is a dairy free pumpkin spice latte, some knee high socks, my cosiest sweater & my biggest knit scarf. Hope you’re ready for the influx of Fall designs that will be coming your way, but I am definitely inspired. 🍁🍂
