I have a fall inspired mani to share with you this time.

Polishes used Square Hue Slot Canyon and a Julep glitter called Jane.  I have had Jane for a long time and she was just sitting on my nail shelf in the plastic wrapper waiting to be opened; still wondering why I waited so long to try this glitter on.  Slot Canyon is a caramel brown a perfect fall hue and formula was on point perfect.  Jane the glitter on my ringer finger and pinky is a copper to die 4 glitter, full coverage in two coats.

I absolutely love how this combo looks; these polishes look like they were made to be worn together.  And that glitter tip on the pinky came out PERFECT!!  It is so pretty in the sunlight ❤  I love when a look comes together.  Happy autumn, cheers to warm colors!

This is what happens when you can not decide on a single color or finish ❤ I love having multi colors and textures/finishes on my nails.

For this look I used Zoya Storm on my thumb and index fingers.  Storm is a black holo polish; GORG!!

OM pinky I used Zoya Imogen as stated on the Zoya.com website “Imogen by Zoya can be best described as a black crystal Magical PixieDust with holographic hex glitter, the perfect complement to a brighter shade or an accent for nail art”  YES!!

OM Middle and Ring fingers I used another holo color, this one is a Julep–it is called Stephanie.  Stephanie is a cherry red holo polish; trust me this is a must have she is soooooooo beautiful.

I just love this combo, hope you like it also 🙂

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.

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!

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!

Hello polish lovers!  Happy hump day; YAY half way to the weekend!

Tonight I have some fun girlie nails to share with you.  They involve some stamping, stardust polish and a lil bling.

My base color is a Julep Mara.  Mara is a textured orchid pink/purple polish with an ultra subtle glitter shimmer which Julep calls a stardust finish.  Mara is very pretty all on its own but I just had to add a little something to her.

Playing with my newest Pueen plate no 110 I added a couple different images.  This plate is what you might call a buffet plate.  It has multiple flowers and butterflies in all shapes and sizes.  A perfect way to add some “summer” to your favorite base color.

I did a 3:2 look:  On my thumb, index and pinky I added some cute butterflies with Konad black stamping polish.  Then for something different on my middle and ring fingers I added some cute flowers.  I actually layered stamps on these fingers, first using a purple Bundle Monster stamping polish called Optical Illusion and then applying the same image using black Konad again in a slightly different position.  For a lil bling I added a couple rhinestones that I got in a Julep box a few months ago.

I think these turned out pretty cute.  I especially love the butterflies!!  I do wish the rhinestone was a little more blingy and was kind of hoping the stardust finish would sparkle more like pixie dust but that’s ok it is still cute.

Happy polishing!
