This is a perfect mani if you are having a hard time saying goodbye to summer.

I finally ordered Zoya summer 2016 NEON collection.  YAY!  Took my long enough but I got them on a BOGO sale, SCORE!

ZOYA BOGO haul

This mani started with white undies of course as recommended for all neon polish to make them really POP.  Then using my makeup sponge I applied a Zoya neon and nude polish to get this look.  My neon is called Bisca and my nude is Cala.  

I really love a nude nail with a pop of color on the tips.  It’s like a french with a TWIST or as I say “Funky French”.

What do you think would you do this combo?
Happy polishing!

Getting crisp fall like weather here in Iowa…bring on Fall inspired manis.

For this look I used Square Hue Nani (08*16 box) and Sandstone (09*16 box).  Dani is a coral/orange hue, I sponged this on the top part of the nail closest to the cuticle.  Sandstone is a redish/orange DUO microglitter, I sponged this on the tips.

I love using the sponge to do my gradient looks, so easy to blend and apply.

This look reminds me of late summer sunsets and fall bonfires.

Thank you Square Hue for the lovely HUES yet again.

Hello guys!  Finally getting to share with you my wedding shower mani.  My lil sister is getting married next month, SO exciting.  A few weeks ago she had a lovely wedding shower.  Of course my nails had to match my ensemble.

I basically kept it simple with a pretty blingy accent finger.

On all my nails but my ring finger I used Sinful Colors Eva so Bright.  Eva so Bright is a bright coral creme.  I love this tone against my skin color.  Super happy with this color choice and  you can see below that it matched my dress perfectly.  On my ring finger I did a white base using Square Hue iPolish from the August15 70’s decades collection.  Love the name of this polish (i have iFever) and who doesn’t love a perfect hue of white.  Over iPolish I added my bling using another color from that same 70s box called Night Fever.  Night Fever is amazing it is a holo multi size glitter bomb or should I say disco ball glitter.  I did a few coats to get very dense coverage.  Love this combo.  It was a perfect finish for my look of the day.  And when I showed up my sister and I actually where wearing very similar colors, great minds.  ❤  I need to start shopping for a dress to wear to her wedding so I can plan that mani!!

Happy hump day everyone.  ps I am still working out, at least 5-6 times a week.  It has been almost a month, woo hoo!!

Happy polishing!

Hope u all had a great weekend.  Mine was filled with lots of puppy time ❤

I have a Monday quickie for you tonight, this post is going to be super short and sweet.

I love the simplicity of this manicure.  First I painted all my nails with Zoya Anthea.  Anthea is a gorgeous coral pink with a gold micro shimmer finish.  I wore Anthea for one day all on its own then I put a stamp on it.

Using Pueen plate 77 and Konad black stamping polish I added a fun random swirl design.  I love the coral and black combo, so divine.

Hope you guys have a great start to the week.  Stay warm.

Happy polishing!

Oh hello Monday, you came back so soon.  I have a happy flowery skittle mani to share with you today.  But first, I have a confession.  Took my daughter school shopping Friday but we just had to stop at two Sally Beauty Supply stores to check out their half off red tag sale.  I got 13 new hues.  Mostly China Glaze; 11 out of the 13 were half off red tag, so under $2.00 a bottle.  How could I pass up that deal??  A lot of these are from the China Glaze Summer 2014 Off Shore Collection, so dreamy!!

So the colors used for my flowery skittle creation are mostly from that last Sally haul:

Pepto Pink is Feel the Breeze

Peachy Orange is If in doubt, Surf it out

Lemon yellow is Sun upon my Skin

Pistachio green is Be more Pacific

Tiffany blue is one I already had in my collection For Audrey

Once I got each color on my digits like skittles (I did three coats of each color) and they were completely dry I added some fun bundle monster stamping images with my Konad black stamping polish.

The bundle monster plates I used are as follows:

The two daisy like flowers on thumb,middle and ring finger are from BM-016

Hibiscus type flower on my pinky is from BM-225

Butterflies on index finger are from BM-205

I think these turned out pretty darn cute.  I did add a matte top coat over my stamping.  I thought it made the colors pop more.

I just love how the pastel colors are semi neon.

I am pretty happy with my recent binge polish buy you just gotta love that kind of a deal 🙂

The other night I was gazing in my Great Wall o Polish looking for some inspiration.  My polishes are all organized by brand and then by color kind of like a rainbow.   I know it’s a bit OCD but it keeps me organized.  Well, I had this row of lovely shades of coral that just called OMBRE to me.

Sinful Corals

Mani  Coral Inspiration

This is my Sinful Ombre with a touch of Julep:

Lightest shade on my thumbs:  Orange Cream

Index:  Island Coral

Middle:  Eva So Bright

Ring:  Timbleberry

Darkest shade on my pinky: Julep Sarah a coral glitter jelly over Timbleberry

I must say I love these coral hues.  They look so pretty against my pale tanless skin.

I was a bit disappointed that  Eva So Bright and Timbleberry are so similar.  But oh well I still love this look.

What your favorite coral polish color?
