Hello fellow polish lovers!!

As mentioned in my last diary post this time I am sharing another Pixie Dust jelly manicure only this time it’s magical.

For this Pixie dust jelly mani I used a Zoya MAGICAL Pixie Dust called Bar.  As stated on the Zoya website Bar by Zoya can be best described as a glittery nude topaz in the best-selling ultra textured, matte, holographic Magical Pixie formula.  OMG like the ultra Pixe Dust Arianna I used in my last post Bar is absolutely gorgeous on its own but again I thought…what if I added a top coat; wait no scratch that what if I added a jelly polish as a top coat?  So I added Zoya Katherine…and um yep I totally still love this look.  Katherine is described by Zoya as a sheer, dark, red-toned aubergine, oxblood jelly polish which looks amazing over Bar.  I could not be happier with how this pixie dust jelly mani turned out.  I love the way the pixie dust glitters under the jelly polish on top, it is super MAGICAL.  I love this technique a lot.

Next time I will be trying another jelly polish over a super glitter polish hope you stop by again to check it out.

Happy polishing!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hello fellow polish lovers!!

I am on a Pixie Dust jelly manicure kick.  I already knew how much I loved Pixie Dust glitter polish.  But in all this time I never thought of putting jelly polish over it.  The Pixie jelly mani is so cool and unique.  I love this technique a lot.

So for this jelly mani I used a Zoya ULTRA Pixie Dust Arianna.  As stated on the Zoya website Arianna by Zoya can be best described as a blue-toned red wine textured PixieDust with Mega Hex particles which dries matte.  OMG Arianna is absolutely gorgeous on its own but I thought…what if I added a top coat; wait no scratch that what if I added a jelly glitter polish as a top coat?  So I added Julep Kyla…and um yeah WOW.  Kyla is a coral orange holo glitter jelly polish which looks amazing over Arianna.  I could not be happier with how the pixie dust jelly mani turned out.  Trust me the pics do not do this duo justice.

Have you ever tried putting a jelly polish over Pixie Dust?  I can say I liked it so much that you will be seeing it a few more times.

Have a great start to a new week tomorrow.

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers!  I hope you are all having a fabulous pre fall weekend.  It is absolutely beautiful in Iowa this weekend.  Yesterday we got out to ride the four wheeler all day; so much fun.

Between parenting, working, exercise, and atv riding I am so behind on blogging my nails.  Oh my I think I am like five to six manicures behind.  I am lucky to get my nails painted let alone sharing them with you guys.  A few Sundays ago I had some time on my hands so I decided to try my hand at water marbling.  I must say water Marbling is 100% easier with the amazing latex barrier; it really makes clean up time a lot shorter.  With that being said water marbling is still by far the most challenging polish technique for me.  This time it wasn’t perfect but then again it wasn’t horrible either.  Once the weather stays cooler I will try practicing this technique a little more.

How I got this look:

Base color on all nails Maybelline Color Show Lavender Lustre.  This is a holo purple silver polish.

I used cheap polishes polish this time for my marble; Wet n Wild Toxic Apple a dark metallic blur-purple and Pure Ice sheer shimmer finishes Bedtime(magenta) and Busted(lilac/pink).  I just alternated the colors in my room temp cup of water swirl and dip.

I can’t wait to have the time to try more water marbles.  I think it will be fun to do some Halloween or fall color combos.

Have a great week!!

Well hello Labor Day and September.  This weekend always seems like the ‘UN’official end of summer to me.  However I am looking forward to crisp cool days and leaves turning.  But most of all Halloween, I have already started my scary movie-thon.  I officially updated my Netflix movie que no more feel good movies until after Halloween.  In fact I started early this year; I am sure by the time Halloween comes I won’t be able to sleep with the lights off, lol.  I haven’t started fall manis just yet, the look I have to share today is still semi summery.

I started with Finger Paints Magenta Mural.  This is a purple polish with a magenta shimmery finish.  Very pretty all on its own but I had to put a stamp on it using Julep Maria.  Maria is described by Julep as a shimmering platinum rose color.  It stamped on quite nicely using Pueen plate 114.  I love the platinum rose over the magenta purple; it really pops.

I hope you all have a nice relaxing Labor Day.  I plan to watch a horror movie and paint my toes and nails.  Still not sure what colors to use yet; but I did just get the whole Zoya Focus & Flair fall line in the mail thanks to the 1/2 off sale they had last week; yay!!

Happy polishing!
