{PR SAMPLE/GIFTED}

Good morning lovelies & happy Thursday! I hope everyone’s week has been going well!

Today I’ve got a super pretty manicure to share with you, & one of my absolute favourite nail art designs — FLORAL! I was feeling inspired by the beautiful Good Kind Pure polishes I shared in my Swatch Sunday post, & naturally they were calling for me create a pretty floral look with them! & oh how I adore the outcome; it looks like vintage wallapper, in the best possible way.

For this look, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Hardener
  • Top Coat: Sally Hansen Good Kind Pure Top Coat
  • Sally Hansen GKP Almond Tan
  • Sally Hansen GKP Pink Cardamom
  • Sally Hansen GPK Eco-Rose
  • Sally Hansen GKP Peony Origins
  • Sally Hansen GKP Beet It
  • Sally Hansen GKP Golden Quartz
  • NailStuff.ca Mermaid Tail Brush Trio (I used the 7mm liner brush)
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio

Usually I try to paint pretty realistic designs when it comes to floral (green for leaves for example) but I really wanted to use all the Good Kind Pure shades for this design. & I actually really love how these turned out! The dusty colour scheme definitely reminds me of vintage wallpaper, or that couch that everyone’s grandmother had (you know the one). But I really, really, really love it. Plus I never get tired of painting roses on my nails.

Ahhh, I just love these so much! The pink roses, the burgundy leaves. Gives me those Spring vibes I desperately need as we slide full force into Winter now. We have like 3 winter storms headed out way in the coming week or so, so I’m probably going to pull all the floral in my closet I own so I can just live in denial about the fact Spring is not-so-close.

What do you think about this floral look using these new shades from Sally Hansen? I’ve been having a lot of fun playing around with them, & still have a few more looks to share, including the perfect dotticure for Valentine’s Day!

Also let me know any tips you have for escaping the Winter Blahs!

Oh my gosh, we did it you guys! It’s the last day of GlamnailschallengeOct! Another month of fun designs that I might not have done otherwise! & I’ve had a blast celebrating my favourite holiday with this challenge… now it’s time for one more design!

The last prompt is Jack o Lanterns. Now there are a lot of different ways you can do Jack O Lanterns on your nails, & I searched through many minutes of Pinterest for inspiration, but in the end I decided to just start painting & see what I got.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Sally Hansen Green Tea Bamboo Strengthener
  • Base Coat: Duri Rejuvocate
  • Top coat: YSL Beauty Quick Dry Top Coat

For this look, I took my base colour which I was already wearing (LA Girl Groupie) & used a few orange acrylic paints to create my pumpkins. I went with acrylic paint (again) because it’s easier to erase if you’re unhappy with how it turns out & I find can’t paint on a bit easier than nail polish — & I was working against the clock.

I liked the idea of doing a couple smaller pumpkins on each finger with a larger “accent pumpkin” on my ring finger. I thought it turned out kind of cute! I’ll be honest, I’m not a huge fan of actually carving pumpkins–& truthfully I haven’t done it in like 10 years–but I’ll paint cute Jack o lanterns on my nails any time!
