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 took my last manicure and added a fun fall stamp using bundle monster plate BM-S206.  I actually layered a couple images using Bundle Monster Straight Up Black stamping polish and Square Hue red Campo San Moise.  Every nail is different, love these fall story nails.  AWE NUTS Mr Squirrel is my favorite!  I did add a matte top coat to finish.

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!

Happy Halloween!  WOW!  This month has flown by…I haven’t even had time to share all my ghoul Halloween nails.  Unfortunately, I have a sick kiddo home from school today so I have a moment to summarize what I have failed to share with you all this month.  I had some pretty fun manis this month;  I love Halloween nail art.  Wish I had more time to share with you all.  If you follow my insta you would have seen them all in real time.  So this time rather than going into detail I will just share the photo and if you want to know specific colors and stamping plates just ask in the comments and I will share.  I feel like this makes more sense rather than sharing them all in a separate blog posts – blowing up your inbox.

Last but not least here are my kitty claws nails–which went perfect with my simple kitty costume.  I love this matte cat claw look.

 

MEOW!!

 

Which look is your favorite?

Hope you have a great holiday—sadly I’ll miss October as it is my favorite month but bring on November!!

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!

YAY had some free time to blog today!

Here is a 3:2 mani with two of my favorite brands of nail polish.

For my 3 I used Square Hue Akamai, a metallic TO DIE FOR teal.  For my top coat I used my Zoya matte; I love metallic colors matted.   For my 2 Zoya Pixie Dust Vega; love this chunky holo pixie dust.  I did use my Seche Vite clear top coat to make this PD shine and sparkle big time.  I love this combo of matte and holo sparkle.

Oh my goodness it is mid August already, I can’t believe it…where has this summer gone?Well I have been so busy enjoying the end of the summer that I haven’t had a chance to share my manicures in a while…15 days exactly.  So I suppose I better get busy; I have quite the overflow on my table.  Somedays I don’t know why I still feel compelled to blog my nails every time but for some reason I keep doing it ❤

This summer I have picked up a ton of Sinful Colors.  Love the Kylie line and absolutely love the price!  This look is Sinful Colors Holly-Wood (Trend Matters satin).  Love this red; it is amazing on every skin tone, a must have for sure.  In this picture I did add a matte top coat on the thumb and index.  On my middle and ring finger I added a Sinful Colors polish called Devil’s Stare.  It is like it was made to go over Holly-Wood.  This jelly glitter is too die for perfection.  And just for fun on my pinky I did a Zoya Pixie Dust called Levi.  If you haven’t noticed I have been all about mixing finishes and colors.  I love the variety on my nails; mostly because I have so many colors I cannot just pick one, lol.

What do you think of this combo…hot hot hot right.  Perfect for a summer time mani.  Again that glitter jelly is perfection!!
