True blue with a twist 💙
First I had my blue polish matte; you may have seen it on my first ever Instagram LIVE session–wow that LIVE stuff is a trip.

This is Square Hue Odhani with a matte TC.
It was cute for about half a day but I had to add another TC — looking at my massive collection, Julep metamorphic top coat TYRA intrigued me so I slapped it on and L👀K

Woa Tyra made this blue truly ahhhhhhhmaZING; more amazing.
I love adding simple layers to jazz up a mani; especially if you tire of the look right away. I got 3 more days out of this manicure 💙

Happy polishing!

I have found magic in a bottle. This polish is amazing. She is a color shifter … from blue to purple to a lil bit in between but not only that KB SHIMMER's Rollin with the Chromies is also HOLO!! AHHHHH I DIE. This polish looks amazing in natural light shifting from one color to the next but in the SUNLIGHT she comes alive, get your sunnies out she is gonna blind you (in a good way).

Happy polishing!

KB Shimmer had a sale last week or so; I indulged.  My latest mani is a couple polishes I picked up from that sale.  This is a 3:2 mani which means I couldn’t decide on one color so I did 2 🙂

My three is a KB Shimmer neon Color me bad it is so bright even without white undies–totally on fleek.  My two is Salt Water Sassy, a teal cream full of multi colors and sizes of glitter–they call this a crelly glitter.  I love this combo; what a super fun summer look.


Happy polishing!

It’s the 4th of July, I love this holiday.  It also happens to be my wedding anniversary; 14 years.  WOW!    Here is my RWB manicure.  Super festive and fun.

Colors used:  Blue~ Zoya Mirajane — Red~ Square Hue fifth ave — White~ bundle monster creative nail art white — Holo glitter~ Square Hue Night Fever — Stars Bundle Monster nail stamping plate BM-021.  And some nail vinyls I got from KB Shimmer about 6 months ago–gah those were a pain to work with because my nails are small and curved.  

You may or may not have noticed I haven’t blogged for over 6 months.  Like I said it is my wedding anniversary and my amazing (😍😍thanks hunny) husband surprised me with an iPad Pro, which has me feeling like I might start blogging again.  I mean like why not, I am still doing my nails why not take a few minutes to share them with the wordpress universe 🙂 

Here is a picture I took with iPad Pro, wow impressive. 

  
Happy polishing!

A few weeks back I had some time to kill so I attempted to water marble.  Colors I marbled are for a fun fall look are:

  • VINTAGE OPI Burning Love; a metallic orange
  • Finger Paints Fall-ing for you; a metallic teal
  • Square Hue Baby,Baby,Baby; a metallic grape (which appears lighter in the marble)
  • Square Hue Sandstone; a shimmery duo pink/gold hue
  • My undies is Sally Hansen Petal Pusher; a nude pink

To simplify the marble process I used a Pueen Latex tape barrier…ahhhhhhMazing!  Total time saver.  I feel like my marble turned out ahhhhh so so.  I have done worse; I have also done better.  I guess I need to keep practicing; with the latex barrier I may be so inclined to do so.

Hi everyone!  Once again I find myself behind on sharing my mani creations.

A couple weeks ago we had tragedy strike in my home town in Iowa.  2 people officers were tragically gunned down in their patrol cars in the dead of the night.  The next day I felt compelled to back the blue on my nails.  Here is what I came up with:

Colors used are China Glaze Frostbite and Square Hue via montenapoleone (my all time fav black matte polish).   Love how this turned out; just sad what compelled me to create it.
Happy polishing!

Excited to share this fiery 3:2 fall manicure!

On my thumb, index and pinky I used Zoya Ember, Ember is a beautiful liquid metal red.  I absolutely love metallic polishes with a matte top coat.

On my middle and ring fingers I made DIY nail decals using Ember and Mirajane.  Mirajane is an ultra neon new from Zoya this summer.  To make my decals I applied Ember to my Bundle Monster Lotus mat and then took both colors and swirled; like a water marble but without water.  I let those dry and then applied to my nail wet with clear top coat and did some clean up.

This is the end result.  In my head I envisioned FIRE and ICE.

DIY nail decals; matte

Here it is comparing matte and shine top coat ❤

I personally like the matte better.

This is a perfect fall manicure.  I love this fiery RED!
