Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! The weekend is almost here — who else is excited? Today I’m also excited because I have some fun & funky chevron accent nails to show off! It feels like ages upon ages since I pulled out my nail vinyls, but after a coworker gifted me a few beautiful polishes — including this lovely shimmery blue, Sally Hansen InstaDri Cosmic Blu — I knew I needed to pull out some vinyls for some fun!
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine
Top Coat: Essence Colour Shine Top Coat
Sally Hansen InstaDri Cosmic Blu
Essie Suite Retreat
The Base Coat Vinyls Chevron/Zig Zag (Wide)
How pretty is Cosmic Blu paired with Suite Retreat? I feel like my nails have been so boring lately — still painting frequently, but at least 60% of the time, I’m just sticking with single colours/no nail art. It’s partially a time thing, but also I think life has just sucked lately, so my inspiration is lacking. I need to find my inspiration again, & that’s been the hard part.
& I won’t even get into how disappointed the Instagram algorithm leaves me. Ugh.
Never the less, I am still painting my nails, & this nail art brings me back a few years, to when I was nail art obsessed. That’s the nail art obsession I need to find again. Also, maybe a super fast drying top coat will help too.
What do you think of these blue shimmery chevron accent nails? Do you love how well these two colours paired together? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & if you’d like to see me creating more fun nail vinyls look again!
A chilly March Monday at that, which is why some Spring colours are definitely needed right now. Today, I have the next prompt for Glam Nails Challenge March which is chevrons. & we all know, I love me some chevrons. I decided to take inspiration from a design I did a few years ago, but with a more pastel/Spring colour scheme.
I love the messy feel of these chevrons. It kind of reminds me a bit of tie dye as well, which I really like. Is tie dye still cool?
The girls at work said they reminded them a bit of Easter eggs, which wasn’t quite the look I was going for, but that’s okay. I guess you can put these on the list of manicures perfect for Easter as well. Truthfully, I’m just loving these pastel shades right now, which means I’m very ready for Spring to be here.
What do you think of these chevron nails? Do you like the messy tie dye feel of them? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below, & if you would wear these nails too!
I hope everyone had a lovely start to their week! I worked a crazy day at work yesterday, thanks to the holiday, so I legit feel hungover even though I didn’t have anything but coffee to drink! It’s going to be a 3 or 4 coffee kind of day.
But in the meantime, how about some fun nails? I actually did these nails back in… October, November (I think?) but for some reason didn’t get around to posting them. Which is actually a shame because look how beautiful they are! You know how much I love chevron moons, & I adore all the details on these ones.
How pretty are these with the addition of the gold lines? I remember thinking these were so, so beautiful when I wore them, which is why I still can’t understand why I never got a chance to post them. Sometimes that happens, or — even worse — I’ll do a manicure I adore, but then wreck it before I have a chance to get pictures of it! That one always breaks my heart the most.
I feel like I haven’t done my chevron moons in a while, so I think I’ve been inspired to do another one very, very soon. Maybe one featuring some very beautiful Spring shades? Feeling inspired!
What do you think of this chevron moon design? Would you wear a look like this? Do you like the combination of colours with the maroon, navy blue & gold?
Leave me a comment down below, & let me know what you think of this look!
Can you believe that it’s the last day of 2021? I’m actually shocked at how quickly this year has gone by. Obviously I couldn’t let this year end without one more nail art look to share — & what’s more fun than some gold holo chevron claws for the end of the year?
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie First Base
Top Coat: Seche Vive
Deborah Lippmann Good Girl Gone Bad
Color Club Ain’t it Grand
SnailNails Deep Chevron Vinyls
How classy do these nails look? I love this holo gold over this deep wine base? These are so shimmery & glittery & sparkly. I may only be spending New Years Eve hanging out with a big bottle on kombucha on my couch, but I’ll have the sparkliest nails ever.
What do you think about these New Year’s Eve claws? What nail are trends are you excited about in 2022? Let me know down in the comments below!
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!
