Hello polish lovers!  Spring is coming soon, yay!

Wanted to share this ultra subtle glam look:  China Glaze sand nude Sorry I’m Latte with Feel the Breeze light pink neon tips.  I did this using a sponge, this is my favorite polishing technique.  Love how these turned out.

Hey polish lovers!

I have another Vday mani to share with you this time.  When you see it you will say Ooh Lala 🙂

First I started with Zoya Brittany on all my nails.  Brittany is a rose mauve creame color which if you apply no top coat it dries in a Satin finish.  The satin finish is a semi matte look, which is very pretty but you won’t see that satin look in my final pics because I added a top coat after I did my stamping.  I picked Brittany because I wanted a softer pink nude base so my lip smacking stamping would really pop.

For my stamping I used Bundle Monster plate 303 and XL 153.  My stamping polish is China Glaze Dune Our Thing which is a bright berry pink.  It stamped really well.  Also used my go to Konad black.

On my littlest nail and ring finger I just did one lip smack.  On the other three nails I did the multi lip smack.  And for fun on the middle and thumbs I added Ooh Lala image in black.

I really ❤ love ❤ how this mani turned out.  Super cute for a Valentine themed look.

 

Happy polishing!  Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Hello November goodbye October.  I totally missed the end of October mani’s.  I missed about three Halloween festive nail looks.  I think in the next week or so I will do a throw back to October entry, lol.

Tonight I have a beautiful fall like water marble to share with you.  I really love this color combo.

My underwear color is China Glaze Innocence a pale nude pink perfect for a blank canvas.

Colors in my marble are:

OPI NYPD Beat a deep beat red and Burning Love a shimmering gold orange.

OPI Nicole colors Here we Kome A-Karoling a deep plum purple, Keeping up with Santa a foil like red and Deck the Dolls a metallic teal.

The effect is oh la la love this!!  My favorite colors are Burning Love and Deck the Dolls!!

Enjoy.  And if you haven’t tried water marbling I suggest you do try it, it is so fun to create new looks with different random colors.  It takes some practice and patience but once you master it you will be so happy!

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers!  I hope you are having a fun October.  My next mani should really get you in the spirit for some bloody horror.  These are my fear nails; I am scared of blood, ticks, spiders, and death oh my.

I started with Square Hue Desert Storm as my base color. Desert Storm is a high gloss beige nude cream color.  It goes on amazing.  It is perfect if you love beige nude nails.  I cannot wait to try this one again for a non horror look.

Then using an Orly blood red called Grave Mistake I stamped on blood splatters using bundle Monster plate BM 416.

Then using Konad special black stamping polish I stamped various fearful images onto each nail over the blood splatter using Bundle monster plate BM 421 and Messy Mansion plate MM11.

 

I have some creature words on my middle, ticks on my index, caution tape on thumb and coffins on my ring finger.  On my pinky I decided to add another blood splatter using a darker red called Naughty and Nice by China Glaze.  This gives it a crusty dried blood look. To finish this fearful bloody look I used a matte top coat.

   
 I think these look bloody perfect for October!  

Really gets me in the Halloween spirit.  
Happy polishing!

Hello fellow polish lovers!!

As mentioned in my last diary post this time I am sharing another Pixie Dust jelly manicure only this time it’s magical.

For this Pixie dust jelly mani I used a Zoya MAGICAL Pixie Dust called Bar.  As stated on the Zoya website Bar by Zoya can be best described as a glittery nude topaz in the best-selling ultra textured, matte, holographic Magical Pixie formula.  OMG like the ultra Pixe Dust Arianna I used in my last post Bar is absolutely gorgeous on its own but again I thought…what if I added a top coat; wait no scratch that what if I added a jelly polish as a top coat?  So I added Zoya Katherine…and um yep I totally still love this look.  Katherine is described by Zoya as a sheer, dark, red-toned aubergine, oxblood jelly polish which looks amazing over Bar.  I could not be happier with how this pixie dust jelly mani turned out.  I love the way the pixie dust glitters under the jelly polish on top, it is super MAGICAL.  I love this technique a lot.

Next time I will be trying another jelly polish over a super glitter polish hope you stop by again to check it out.

Happy polishing!

Hello polish lovers.  I hope you guys are having a great week.  I have been getting behind on sharing my manis with you guys.  Whew going to the gym consistently every night really takes up a lot of free time that I would have otherwise been blogging.  I am just glad to say that I am still working on my fitness.  I haven’t lost any pounds yet but I feel stronger every time.  Go me!!

Tonight I want to share with you a Zoya creation.  This one will be short and sweet but I really love this look.  I did a similar look a few weeks ago with a neon tip.  This time I did a creamy suede taupe nail with a true turquoise metallic tip.

To get this look I used my latex barrier to help with clean up and sponged on my two colors.

The main color I picked is Zoya Rowan and the teal tip using Zoya Oceane.  Oceane is a gorgeous true turquoise metallic blue, love love love this blue.  Rowan is a satin finish but I decide to top coat for a shiny finish.

What do you think of this funky french look?  I love it when I can’t decide on just one color; two is always better than one.

Happy polishing!

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

I have a really fun summer manicure to share with you guys tonight.  The other day I wanted to go nude with a pop of neon.

Colors used for my neon nude mani are Zoya Satin Ana.  Ana is a pretty nude for my skin tone.  Zoya describes it as a light toasted almond cream. My neon pop is China Glaze Japanese Koi.  Japanese Koi is a ring the alarm show stopping neon orange.  One of my all time favs; I believe it was just retired.

This look is super easy to achieve.  First I started with my clear base Nail Envy as always, I never go without my NE base coat.  Then using a make up sponge I dabbed on my colors to get a semi gradient look.  Really really easy.  I used my latex barrier around my cuticles to eliminate long clean up time.

I am super happy with how these turned out.  Love me some neon nude pop.

Hope you are having a great week, TGIAF!!!!

Happy polishing!
