Good morning lovelies & happy Friday! & happy almost weekend. Today I’m sharing a manicure I did recently which was quick & easy, & got a lot of compliments!
Originally I was just planning on wearing the base, but decided I needed more than just simple red nails, so I added the stripe & gold. & I love it! Plus this whole look was completed in under 30 minutes from base coat to dry.
The polishes I used for this manicure are:
Base Coat: Sally Hansen Good. Kind. Pure Hardener
Top Coat: Seche Vive
Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Cherry Delightful
Again, these were so simple to do! The hardest part was trying to make sure that I had my lines in the middle of my nails & they were straight. I know I could have used nail vinyls, but lately I feel like I’m more inclined to hand paint my nails over vinyls (or even stamping) because there is less waiting around for my base to dry.
What do you think about this design? Do you like this not-so-simple red & gold look. I think this would look awesome in a variety of different colour schemes. I’m already picturing a pastel/spring coloured look in my head as I write this!

Good Morning Lovelies & happy Tuesday. I hope everyone had a good weekend & those who had yesterday off had a good extra long weekend! Today I’m starting off with a dotticure. It feels like absolute ages since I wore polka dots of my nails, so this manicure was long overdue. Plus I was in need of a quick look that I could do, looked snazzy & still meant I could get to bed at a reasonable time. Polka dots are always the right answer!
For this design, the polishes I used were:
Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
ORLY Decades is Dysfunction
Sally Hansen I ♥️ Nail Art Pen in Navy
Essie Jiggle Hi, Jiggle Low
Small dotting tool
Don’t get me wrong, I love big bold dotticure designs (& I’ve been dreaming of a few as we get closer to Fall & Fall Polish season) but there is something about a teeny tiny dotticure that is just so satisfying. It’s such a fresh clean look, & so much more forgiving if your polka dots aren’t completely perfect. Also I still love using my Sally Hansen nail art pens for this purpose! So much easier to control when creating dots. & let’s be honest—when it’s 11pm & I have to be up at 5:45am to get ready for work, I don’t need to be re-dotting my nails for hours trying to get them right!
What do you think of this dotticure look? Do you prefer petite or regular sized polka dot designs? Let me know your thoughts down in the comments below! & if there is any looks you’d love to see me do, share them too!
