Today I have a fun early Valentine’s Day look to share with you I did before my tragic nail break last week. I was feeling something Valentines-y, but not pink, so I decided to recreate a look similar to one I did last year.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Essie Millionails
Top Coat: Seche Vive
Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Blitz
Essie All the Wave
Dimension Nails Great Blue Heron (gifted c/o: NailStuff.ca)
Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a lovely start to their week so far. It continues to be Winter here, & now that Christmas is over — I am definitely over it! Bring on Spring, please!
Today’s look is one I haven’t done in a while: roses. You know my love affair with anything floral, so I can’t believe it took me so long to paint another floral. Also does this count for as some Valentine’s Day inspiration?
How pretty did these turn out? I used Dimension Nails Hooded Seal for my base, which is from her brand new Winter collection. I love the holo shimmer, & the icy blue colour! It’s very, very pretty. I just wish it had been a sunnier day, so you could really see how beautiful the holo is!
I don’t know why, but I just love love love my roses with a blue background. Something just makes the roses always pop so beautifully. I decided to go with a deeper, darker rose because they just felt more Winter-y to me. & I love how they turned out. My middle finger turned out my favourite.
What do you think about this vintage rose design? Would you wear this look? Let me know down in the comments below!
It’s the first Swatch Sunday of 2022, in fact, & I’m excited because I have a beautiful polish to share with you that was gifted to me c/o: the oh so sweet @NailStuff.ca: Dimension Nails Kronosaurus. This shade was released as part of the Prehistoric Collection — a whole collection of polishes named after Dinosaurs!
Two coats, no top coat.
How freaking stunning is the beautiful blackened blue? It’s absolutely perfect for this time of year!
The formula is smooth & easy to apply. I applied 2 coats for full coverage, but you may be able to get away with one thick coat if you have shorter nails. The brush on the Dimension Nails bottle is also great because it’s wider, meaning you need less swipes for full coverage.
The shimmer is so beautiful, & I love how you don’t have to fret about too many brush strokes because the wider brush. You might remember I used this shade for one of my New Years Eve looks, & I feel like it has a lot of nail art possibilities! I also really want to see how it looks with matte top coat over top — I bet it is stunning!

Good morning lovelies! I hope everyone had the most amazing Christmas & Boxing Day. Our whole family was very spoiled, & I’ve very much enjoyed celebrating in the place I spent many a Christmas as a kid. ♥️🎄 it also means I’m super late on sharing the next prompt for #GlamNailsChallengeDec: Presents!
For this manicure, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat:Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Strengthening Base Coat
Is there anything more beautiful than red & gold. I love how the gold presents pop over this beautiful vibrant red holo polish! Feels very Christmas-y! Also any excuse to wear this amazing shade from Dimension Nails is a good excuse… it’s such a perfect glitter shade for this time of year I knew I had to incorporate it a Christmas design for this year.
Was Santa good to you? Hopefully you were spoiled not just with presents under the tree, but lots of lovely family time & memories. Those are my favourite Christmas presents.
Don’t forget to hop on over to Instagram to see the other looks for #glamnailschallengeDec. I love going through & seeing everyone’s interpretations of the same prompt! So many cute versions of the same idea.
Hello lovelies & happy Sunday! How crazy is it we only have 2 Sundays left until Christmas? I’m still attempted to get my Christmas presents together… the stress level is real!
But, I was lucky enough to receive an awesome gifted package from my girl Victoria at NailStuff.ca featuring some fun new goodies. If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook you would have gotten a sneak peak already, but Victoria sent me 3 brand new polishes from 2 new-to-me brands. & first up we’re taking about Dimension Nails!
Dimension Nails is a vegan, cruelty free Indie brand that is 10 free. That means it’s free of 10 not good for you ingredients including formaldehyde, toluene, & other really bad for you ingredients. Love that! Nailstuff.ca is a seller for the brand here in Canada, but you can also purchase directly from the Dimension Nails website as well. Also interesting is the fact that some of her shades–including the two I received–are collab shades with others which is so cool!
