A few weeks back I had some time to kill so I attempted to water marble.  Colors I marbled are for a fun fall look are:

  • VINTAGE OPI Burning Love; a metallic orange
  • Finger Paints Fall-ing for you; a metallic teal
  • Square Hue Baby,Baby,Baby; a metallic grape (which appears lighter in the marble)
  • Square Hue Sandstone; a shimmery duo pink/gold hue
  • My undies is Sally Hansen Petal Pusher; a nude pink

To simplify the marble process I used a Pueen Latex tape barrier…ahhhhhhMazing!  Total time saver.  I feel like my marble turned out ahhhhh so so.  I have done worse; I have also done better.  I guess I need to keep practicing; with the latex barrier I may be so inclined to do so.

I don’t often get that excited about my nail art.  But this turned out so perfect; I am in love!  I bet you FALL in love also ❤

Started with a retro OPI polish called DS GLOW, Glow is a golden brown almost copper foil like polish.  It is a perfect back drop for some fall stamping.

Last week I splurged an ordered a couple Pueen stamping plates so I was super excited to try one out.  Using Pueen Nature Lover plate 01 I stamped on some autumn leaves using Konad black stamping polish.  This alone was really pretty but a while back I picked up some Wet n Wild jelly (Candy gloss nail tint) polish from Walgreens so I though why not give the lead light technique a try, jellies are perfect for this type of manicure.  Wet n Wild jellies are Floral Support the red and One Grape or Another is the purple.  I didn’t have a green Wet n Wild jelly so I used my Zoya Frida for a teal green leaf.  I just used my dotting tool and filled in the leaves with the jelly polish.  The jelly polish is a tint so it dries perfect within the lines of the stamp.

Ooooh em geeeeeee forgive me but I LOVE how these turned out.

I did not get a proper pic in the sun; but it is just absolutely gorge in the sunlight.  Glow shimmers under the jellies ❤

Nail Diary #395

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!!!  ❤

The nail of the day “hues” are absolutely gorgeous.

To get this look I used a sponge to apply and blend two colors.  The color closest to the cuticle is Square Hue Drop Out and the tip color is Watergate.  These are both duo chrome colors so I thought they would look really great as a sponge gradient.  Watergate is purple with blue flash and Drop out is blue with purple flash.  They almost match too much, in some light you almost could not tell that I had two colors on.  But regardless both of these colors are gorgeous, showstoppers.

Oh well my one complaint is the SHRINK **gasp** ugh nothing worse than spending all that time and your tips shrink, super annoying. For that very reason I didn’t get to wear this fab combo too long, my nail OCD just wouldn’t allow it.  But if you look beyond the dreaded SHRINK on the tips this combo is pretty rad.

I have a fun colorful skittle manicure to share with you all today.  This manicure is a perfect example of what happens when you get a new polish line and can’t decide on any one color.  The majority of these colors are from the 2016 Zoya Sunset collection.  This color combo makes me think of California sunsets and palm trees <3.

Here is a list of the colors I used to do this look:

From thumb to little finger I used these five colors Square hue St. Lucia, Zoya Cam, Zoya Dixie, Zoya Brynn and Zoya Liv.  Really love this summery sunset look.

Last week we all got the shocking news that Prince had passed.  I just happened to be wearing purple polish.

This is a 3:2 manicure with Zoya matte purple Savita on my thumb, index and middle finger.  On my ring and pinky fingers I have a gorgeous  milky lavender purple glitter polish from SquareHue called Jungfrau, make more glitters like these SquareHue!!!

I seriously love this combo; both of these polishes are to DIE ❤  I love purple.
