New Year’s Eve Chevron Claws 🥂🍾

Hello lovelies & Happy New Year’s Eve!

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
  • Orly Bling
  • 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!

Glam Nails Challenge December— Christmas Tree

Hello lovelies & happy Monday. I hope everyone had a lovely weekend — a safe Christmas for those who celebrate, & a quiet (or not so quiet) weekend for those who don’t.

We definitely had a very busy Christmas that’s for sure! & Santa definitely spoiled all of us, including some new nail polishes. Once of those newbie—which was so kindly gifted by my friend Victoria (@nailstuffca), along with a bunch others, is the base for today’s Glam Nails Challenge December look for Christmas Tree.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

I’ll have actual swatches of these shades coming over the next little while, along with lots of nail art looks, but how pretty do these Mis-matched gold Christmas trees look over this dark jewel like base of Frozen Twilight.

A little bit if Christmas spilling over.

Can you believe that this month & year is almost over?! We only a few more manicures left to share for this year! That’s kind of crazy. Another awesome year in the books!

I look forward to what 2022 has in store!

Have a lovely Monday. ✨🎄

Purple & Blue Holo Snowflakes ❄️

It’s finally here! Merry Christmas Eve! I hope everyone is all ready for Santa to come… & if you’re not ready, we’ll, I’m right there beside you! The amount of wrapping I have left to do… it’s going to be a long night!

You know Santa has an espresso machine right in his sleigh.

My final Christmas/holiday look is this pretty holographic snowflake design! Usually I wear a few snowflake designs before Christmas comes, but I’ve been slacking — maybe because we’re going to have a very green Christmas here.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • OPI DS Extravagance
  • Superchic Lacquer Throwing Shade
  • Nailstuff.ca clear stamper & scraper set
  • Assortment of BornPretty stamping plates (no longer available)

I really, really love the untraditional colour scheme of this look! It’s not what you would usually expect for Christmas & that’s why I love it. Plus you can never go wrong with holo! & I love Superchic Throwing Shade because it stamps so very well!

It all kind of reminds me a beautiful wrapping paper or gift bag. Who wouldn’t love to find a gift under their tree with this pretty wrapping paper.

Abstract Candy Cane Accent Nails

Hello lovelies & happy Tuesday!

I’m seriously dedicated to sharing a Christmas design everyday until Saturday. Today’s look is funky abstract candy cane accent nails.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • China Glaze Emerald Fitzgerald
  • China Glaze Friends Forever Right
  • China Glaze Ruby Slippers
  • China Glaze Polarized
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush

These were super easy to do! I used my long striper brush from NailStuff which made painting my lines so much easier. Originally I was going to do something with these colours & nail vinyls, but I was too lazy to wait for my nails to dry, so I decided to abstract stripes was the

Glam Nails Challenge December— Ornaments

Contains PR sample/Gifted product

Hello lovelies & happy Friday!

I swear I’ve been meaning to post this design for 2 days, but with Christmas right around the corner (& 12 hour work days) I’ve been struggling to find a good nail blogger balance with real life.

But! Today I have my next prompt for GlamNailsChallengeDecember: ornaments. & I decided to go with a simply bauble look for this design — something festive, but not too over the top. & naturally I had to pose in front of my own Christmas tree for the photographs.

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie First Base
  • Top Coat: Seche Vive
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Tutu the Ballet
  • Sally Hansen MG Snow What You Want
  • Sally Hansen MG Under the Tree
  • Sally Hansen MG Wrapped in Love
  • Sally Hansen MG Five Golden Blings
  • Sally Hansen MG Get Mod
  • Sally Hansen MG Buffalo Nickel
  • Sally Hansen MG Blacky-O
  • NailStuff.ca 7mm detail brush
  • NailStuff.ca Dotting Tool Trio

How cute did these turn out?! I tried to give these baubles a fun vintage look. Also it gave me a chance to use a few more of the beautiful shades of the Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Joy of Colour collection for this holiday (plus a few older Sally Hansen shades). & I’m really really happy with how they look.

Plus I’m absolutely in love with this glitter sandwich I did using Snow What You What & Tutu the Ballet which I’ve been itching to do since I got it.

What do you think about this ornament look? Do they scream Christmas to you? Are you almost ready for the holidays?
