In honor of the Olympic Games I did a GO FOR THE MEDAL manicure.  This started off a simple look but I added a glitter twist.

For the gold medals (thumbs and index fingers) I used Zoya Ziv

For the silver (middle and ring fingers) I used Zoya Trixie

Last but not least for the bronze (little finger) I used Julep Rashida

Having plain metallic medal nails was great but I needed to add some glam.  So on the tips I sponged on some glam glitter; Zoya Levi was perfect on the gold, Zoya Tilly really pops over the silver and Julep Diamond Theory looks great over the bronze polish.  I was only sad I did not get a great picture of this GLAM medal manicure in the sun.

I liked my last manicure so much that I did it again the exact same way but in different colors!  This time I used Sinful Colors KOSMOS (Trend Matters Satin) on my thumb and index finger and added matte top coat.  On my middle and ringer fingers I added Kloud 9 over KOSMOS and on my pinky I used Zoya Pixie Dust Tilly.  Love the colbalt blue and silver in this combination.  KOSMOS is another must have, love it.

What do you think of having a few colors and finishes in your mani?  I def think it adds a lil something to a look❤

Oh my goodness it is mid August already, I can’t believe it…where has this summer gone?Well I have been so busy enjoying the end of the summer that I haven’t had a chance to share my manicures in a while…15 days exactly.  So I suppose I better get busy; I have quite the overflow on my table.  Somedays I don’t know why I still feel compelled to blog my nails every time but for some reason I keep doing it❤

This summer I have picked up a ton of Sinful Colors.  Love the Kylie line and absolutely love the price!  This look is Sinful Colors Holly-Wood (Trend Matters satin).  Love this red; it is amazing on every skin tone, a must have for sure.  In this picture I did add a matte top coat on the thumb and index.  On my middle and ring finger I added a Sinful Colors polish called Devil’s Stare.  It is like it was made to go over Holly-Wood.  This jelly glitter is too die for perfection.  And just for fun on my pinky I did a Zoya Pixie Dust called Levi.  If you haven’t noticed I have been all about mixing finishes and colors.  I love the variety on my nails; mostly because I have so many colors I cannot just pick one, lol.

What do you think of this combo…hot hot hot right.  Perfect for a summer time mani.  Again that glitter jelly is perfection!!

Nail Diary #395

This manicure started as a nude/neon gradient.  Using Zoya Cala and China Glaze Celtic Sun(neon) I did some sponge nail art, I thought it turned out super cute.  A nude nail with a pop of color on the tip is always fun.  And neon is a perfect summer hue.

Nude with a pop of neon

After one day of my nude/neon I just had to add a stamp.  Using Bundle Monster plate S110 and Zoya Liv an orchid purple polish I stamped on random images over my nude/neon.  This really turned out cute.  I felt like “OM” yoga nails; this look is very zen.   Honestly I really had a hard time taking it off because it was cute.

Hey all!  I have a fun neon look to share this time.  All the neons I used this time are China Glaze polishes.  Quick neon tip: first I started with white undies so my neons would have that neon POP.

To get this look I did a Tri-sponge technique alternating three neons on every other nail.  Color combos are as such:

Pinks/orange/yellow called Love’s a Beach/Japanese Koi/Celtic Sun                                                                 Greens/Blues/Purples called In the Lime Light/Turned up Turquoise/Dune Our Thing

Basically I sponged on the tri-color combos and alternated nails; just that easy.  I am really happy with how the neons blended together on each nail.  Then I added a funky stamp from Bundle Monster + Sloteazzy BM XL210 blogger designed images.  I love how the swirl looks on the neons; super fun for summer.  I also used a matte top coat to finish.

Hope all your neons are popping!!!  <3

This nail of the day is a dark romantic look.  I used three colors to get this look along with some stamp layering.  On my thumb, index and little finger I used Square Hue Sierra Sunset.  Sierra Sunset is a dusty frosty dark rose red, so so beautiful.  On my middle and ring fingers I used a Square Hue dark grey called Y2K.  Playing with Pueen buffet plate 80 I added rose images in the opposite color to start with and then to add another layer I added another rose image using Konad black stamping polish.  I really love these black rose nails, my only wish is that my camera would pick up the complexity of this manicure.  But you get the idea…enjoy!

The nail of the day “hues” are absolutely gorgeous.

To get this look I used a sponge to apply and blend two colors.  The color closest to the cuticle is Square Hue Drop Out and the tip color is Watergate.  These are both duo chrome colors so I thought they would look really great as a sponge gradient.  Watergate is purple with blue flash and Drop out is blue with purple flash.  They almost match too much, in some light you almost could not tell that I had two colors on.  But regardless both of these colors are gorgeous, showstoppers.

Oh well my one complaint is the SHRINK **gasp** ugh nothing worse than spending all that time and your tips shrink, super annoying. For that very reason I didn’t get to wear this fab combo too long, my nail OCD just wouldn’t allow it.  But if you look beyond the dreaded SHRINK on the tips this combo is pretty rad.
