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.

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!

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?

This manicure started as a nude/neon gradient.  Using Zoya Cala and China Glaze Celtic Sun(neon) I did some sponge nail art, I thought it turned out super cute.  A nude nail with a pop of color on the tip is always fun.  And neon is a perfect summer hue.

After one day of my nude/neon I just had to add a stamp.  Using Bundle Monster plate S110 and Zoya Liv an orchid purple polish I stamped on random images over my nude/neon.  This really turned out cute.  I felt like “OM” yoga nails; this look is very zen.   Honestly I really had a hard time taking it off because it was cute.

Hey all!  I have a fun neon look to share this time.  All the neons I used this time are China Glaze polishes.  Quick neon tip: first I started with white undies so my neons would have that neon POP.

To get this look I did a Tri-sponge technique alternating three neons on every other nail.  Color combos are as such:

Pinks/orange/yellow called Love’s a Beach/Japanese Koi/Celtic Sun                                                                 Greens/Blues/Purples called In the Lime Light/Turned up Turquoise/Dune Our Thing

Basically I sponged on the tri-color combos and alternated nails; just that easy.  I am really happy with how the neons blended together on each nail.  Then I added a funky stamp from Bundle Monster + Sloteazzy BM XL210 blogger designed images.  I love how the swirl looks on the neons; super fun for summer.  I also used a matte top coat to finish.

Hope all your neons are popping!!!  ❤

Hello polish lovers!  I am excited to share some super fun summer nails with you this time.

Since I found the latex barrier I have been obsessed with sponging on my polish, it makes clean up a snap.  Plus I can pick three colors if I can’t choose just one.  This is a really cool neon combo with a happy flower stamp.

Colors used I used:

Closest to the cuticle China Glaze neon green Shore Enuff, the middle white is Pure Ice Super Star!, and the neon pink on the tip is China Glaze Shocking Pink.   I did not use a white undie this time.  I just sponged this trio right on to my naked nail.

Of course I had to add a stamp.  I have so many plates now it gets harder and harder to choose an image but I decided to go with one of my newest Pueen plate 112 using Konad black stamping polish.

I love how this turned out so bright and summery absolutely perfect for a summertime manicure.

Happy polishing!
