Hey fellow polish lovers!  Today I have Zoya Laurel on my tips.  Laurel is a pretty soft pink from the 2016 spring Petal collection.  It does have a very soft shimmer finish.  Must confess I love this pink.

Zoya Laurel

Decided to add some stamping; using special Konad black stamping polish and Bundle Monster plate BM-S161 I added some cute Kitty Cat images.  SO cute, right?  Reminds me of Hello Kitty nails.❤ MEOW❤

Have you seen the new SCKJsatin trendmatters polish, more specifically Sinful Colors Konstellation?  This is my new favorite color.  It’s a color shifter and it dries streak free.  The SC website describes it as a mysterious pink and green duo-chrome shadeTo me the green is more of a teal.  This color is memorizing and it dries as a satin matte.  I really did not have high hopes for King Kylie’s Sinful line but this color really makes me want to head to Target and seek the other colors.  Sinful Colors Konstellation is a must have!!!

Often my manicures reflect the seasons or holidays.  This mani reflects April showers bringing May flowers.  And wow I can’t wait for the May flowers.  Bring on warm weather.

This is a 3:2 look.  The 3 nails are my April showers.  The showers are two colors sponged on the nail using SquareHue mint green Duval Street on the bottom part of the nail closest to the tip and sky blue St John on the cuticle side.  I was thinking rain and grass.  Then using Konad white and Bundle Monster plate BM-S229 I stamped on a stormy/windy cloud image.

The 2 nails are my flowers.  For this look I sponged on two pinks and a sherbet orange.  The pinks are SquareHue Eiger and Mallory Street and the orange is also SquareHue Temple Bar.  I was thinking this is a perfect combo to stamp flowers over.  Using the same Bundle Monster plate I stamped on a flower image using Konad black.  Then I added a Northern Lights holo top coat over the 2 flower nails.

This is cute… although it looked better in my mind.

Hope you get to enjoy some May flowers soon!!

For this look I started with Sinful Colors Porcelain matte teal She’s gone matte.  Which was really pretty on its own but I could not sit still long enough last night for them to dry and I dinged a few nails (well more like 5 nails yikes!).  And rather than doing my nails over I added a coat of Sinful Colors Bling it On Snow and Teal-which is a holo glitter frosty teal.  That totally took care of the nails that where messed up, SCORE time saver.  One day I will learn to not push my dry time, especially when I don’t add a top coat.

Then I added a fun stamp from Bundle Monster plate BM-XL210 using a hot pink stamping polish.  My intention was to try my new glass stamper from bundle monster but for some reason I can’t get it to pick up full image so I used my old stand by stamper; so you will see my image is not completely centered on every nail.  Oh wells it still looks pretty.  Love that stamping image a lot❤.

Oh Zoya❤  PSA:  Be sure to check out Zoya Earth day special at zoya.com; hurry special ends at end of the month.  And no they don’t pay me to share; I just love Zoya polish that much.

Today on my tips is Zoya Amy.  Amy is a red/orange foil metallic.  This color is amazing, absolutely love it.  However for fun I did add a matte topcoat; I feel like it adds a special something to Amy.  Amy is a must have, ha!  Maybe someday Zoya will make a polish called Amie, lol.

Last week we all got the shocking news that Prince had passed.  I just happened to be wearing purple polish.

This is a 3:2 manicure with Zoya matte purple Savita on my thumb, index and middle finger.  On my ring and pinky fingers I have a gorgeous  milky lavender purple glitter polish from SquareHue called Jungfrau, make more glitters like these SquareHue!!!

I seriously love this combo; both of these polishes are to DIE❤  I love purple.

I have another SquareHue creation to share with you.  For this manicure I used a makeup sponge and sponged on two colors.  The color used closest to the cuticle is called Monch, which is a sunflower yellow from the April 2016 Square Hue Adventure Collection.  The other color I used is called Day Glow I got this one back in May 2013 (still as good as new).  I did use liquid latex around my cuticles to help with cleanup, what a life saver!

This manicure was super easy and I could not be happier with this color combination.  My nails look like a beautiful sunset.
