Vibrant Blue Geometric Pattern Nails (featuring the new formula Sally Hansen Pacific Blue)

Hello lovelies & happy Thursday! Can you believe how quickly this week is going by? It’s been kind of rainy & gross here the last few days, which kind of had me craving some brighter colours in my life! So hence today’s nail art look.

I won’t lie — I’m still craving a lot of Fall & Autumn things right now. But every so often I like to mix things up with some not-Fall colours. & I thought this polish combo was really a lot of fun ( & the right amount of sparkle!)

The polishes I used for this manicure are: 

  • Base Coat: Essie Hard To Resist Glow & Shine 
  • Top Coat: Essie Gel Setter
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Pacific Blue (the new formula)
  • Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Rock Star Pink
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Buffalo Nickel
  • NailStuff.ca 16mm Striper Brush

How gorgeous is the combination of Sally Hansen’s new formula Pacific Blue & Rock Star Pink? I’ve owned this bottle of the new Pacific Blue for a few years, but I’m fairly certain this time is the first time I’ve actually worn it. We all know much I adore the original Pacific Blue, so I think I was just being a snob about it haha. Of course, this new version is not as perfect as the original, but it’s still a pretty polish — especially with a cost of Rock Star Pink layered overtop.

Originally I had planned on just wearing my nails plain, but I got this idea about doing some geographic lines over top, & I feel like it completed the look. Something about the contrast of the silver over the blue is just perfect. It’s a very vibrant look, & I love that.

What do you think of this nail art look? Do you love the combo of the pink glitter over the blue as much as I do? Let me know all your thoughts down in the comments below! & have a lovely Thursday!

Black & White X-pattern Nails ✖️

Happy Tuesday lovelies! Anyone else currently attempting to survive the heat? Thank goodness for air conditioning because I haven’t really had to deal with the humidity much. Never thought I would be happy to spend 95% of my day at work, but if it keeps me from being sweaty I’m all for it!

Today I’ve got the day off though, & I’m showing off a fun design I wore for 3 days last week. You know I’m in love with a design when I wear it for more than a day, & I really loved this look! Seriously, I probably would have worn it longer, but my nails started chipping at work & I couldn’t deal.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • Sally Hansen CSM Let’s Snow
  • Essie Frock ‘N Roll
  • Xroma Polish & Vinyls X-Pattern Nail Stencils
  • Make Up Sponge

How cute is this look?! This was the last of my x-pattern vinyls, so I’m definitely going to need to pick up some more ASAP. I’ve tried to freehand this look before but it looks way better when it’s done with vinyls (oh, & takes WAY less time too!) Also even though Essie Frock ‘N Roll isn’t technically a black polish, it looks close enough & works so perfectly over my white base. I love wearing black & white nail designs & pairing them with a bright & colourful outfit.

So what do you think about this black & white design? What are you wearing on your nails this week? Share down below! ♥️
