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.

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.

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?

Getting crisp fall like weather here in Iowa…bring on Fall inspired manis.

For this look I used Square Hue Nani (08*16 box) and Sandstone (09*16 box).  Dani is a coral/orange hue, I sponged this on the top part of the nail closest to the cuticle.  Sandstone is a redish/orange DUO microglitter, I sponged this on the tips.

I love using the sponge to do my gradient looks, so easy to blend and apply.

This look reminds me of late summer sunsets and fall bonfires.

Thank you Square Hue for the lovely HUES yet again.

Nail Diary #398

August 18, 2016

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.

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.

Nude with a pop of neon

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.
