Here is another pretty fall inspired manicure.  Colors I blended together are OPI Burning Love and SquareHue Sandstone.  I know I know I just used these colors in a water marble.  But sometimes those creations inspire other manicures.  Using my makeup sponge I blended these colors together to make a gorg fall sunset/sunrise manicure.  Love this combo. ❤

Just in time for October here is some creepy tree nails.  This mani reminds me of my favorite Halloween movie, The Blair Witch.

Started with Square Hue Parizska as my base, this is a med grey polish with gold glitter bits ❤

Then I took Zoya Levi a gold Pixie Dust and sponged it on the tips.

My creepy tree is stamped on using Pueen Halloween Party 01 plate.

LOVE – LOVE – LOVE how these turned out.

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.

I liked my last manicure so much that I did it again the exact same way but in different colors!  This time I used Sinful Colors KOSMOS (Trend Matters Satin) on my thumb and index finger and added matte top coat.  On my middle and ringer fingers I added Kloud 9 over KOSMOS and on my pinky I used Zoya Pixie Dust Tilly.  Love the colbalt blue and silver in this combination.  KOSMOS is another must have, love it.

What do you think of having a few colors and finishes in your mani?  I def think it adds a lil something to a look ❤

Hello Happy Monday!  Hope your week is staring off right.  My nails are cute so all is good in my world.

This is an indecisive mani; for some reason the other night I could not pick between matte and shine so I did both.

I started with Zoya Iris which is from the Winter/Holiday Matte Velvet 2015 Collection (which btw I had to have the whole collection right when it came out).  I must say this matte purple amethyst is so pretty.  It kind of reminds me of a grapey wine color.  And because I can’t have just one color on my nails I added Zoya Thea on to my ring and little fingernails with a clear top coat for a gorge shine.  Thea is a deep amethyst Magical PixieDust packed full of holo hex glitter; who doesn’t love a holo glitter pixie dust. Thea complimented Iris so well that I decided to add some to all my tips and then seal with my Zoya matte top coat.

I am really pretty happy with how these turned out.  Plus I didn’t have to choose between matte and shine; which is good because sometimes I get tired of making decisions.

I hope you all have a great week full of super cute manicures!!

Test test testing….does this thing still work?  Man lets state the obvious I have MIA for a long time.  Good grief I was wondering if I would ever get back on here to share my nails again.  Long story short…I started a new job and it required a lot of my time at first.  Today I finally have the time and energy to blog.  Now don’t get it twisted I was not running around town with naked nails, gasp.  But I won’t lie they where very bland and lack-luster.  But now I am back on here at least for tonight; baby steps.

I have some very cute but random snow flakes on my nails.  My mani tonight reflects on the season, plus did you notice it is snowing on my blog page.

I started with Zoya Loredana a gun metal matte grey polish on all my nails.  I added some bling to my ring finger using Zoya Pixie Dust London a grey glitter sparkle. I also stamped on some random flakes using my NEW Bundle Monster nail stamping plates BM-S213 and BM-S216 (which I love btw) using Square Hue white iPolish and applied a matte top coat.  On my random sparkle nail I did some white and blue flakes to add interest and to frankly be different and I kept this nail shiny to pop out.  Sometimes it feels really good to be random.

Hope you like this look.  And thanks for stopping by after all this time.
