True blue with a twist 💙
First I had my blue polish matte; you may have seen it on my first ever Instagram LIVE session–wow that LIVE stuff is a trip.

This is Square Hue Odhani with a matte TC.
It was cute for about half a day but I had to add another TC — looking at my massive collection, Julep metamorphic top coat TYRA intrigued me so I slapped it on and L👀K

Woa Tyra made this blue truly ahhhhhhhmaZING; more amazing.
I love adding simple layers to jazz up a mani; especially if you tire of the look right away. I got 3 more days out of this manicure 💙

Happy polishing!

Naked nails alert. Just kidding 😂. Did ya know Zoya has a naked manicure set that gives the illusion of fabulous naked nails, oh my goodness!!!
First I started with the NM lavender perfector to even out color. The second set to my naked manicure is the pink perfector with NM white tip perfector. I absolutely love this Zoya Naked mani set; you really can't go wrong with it.
To add some spice to my naked nails I stamped on a couple rose images from Pueen nature lover 01 stamping plate. For a splash of color I used Wet n Wild Floral support red candy gloss nail tint.
Pretty happy with how these turned out; got me feeling all rosey🌹.

Happy polishing!

It’s the 4th of July, I love this holiday.  It also happens to be my wedding anniversary; 14 years.  WOW!    Here is my RWB manicure.  Super festive and fun.

Colors used:  Blue~ Zoya Mirajane — Red~ Square Hue fifth ave — White~ bundle monster creative nail art white — Holo glitter~ Square Hue Night Fever — Stars Bundle Monster nail stamping plate BM-021.  And some nail vinyls I got from KB Shimmer about 6 months ago–gah those were a pain to work with because my nails are small and curved.  

You may or may not have noticed I haven’t blogged for over 6 months.  Like I said it is my wedding anniversary and my amazing (😍😍thanks hunny) husband surprised me with an iPad Pro, which has me feeling like I might start blogging again.  I mean like why not, I am still doing my nails why not take a few minutes to share them with the wordpress universe 🙂 

Here is a picture I took with iPad Pro, wow impressive.

Happy Halloween!  WOW!  This month has flown by…I haven’t even had time to share all my ghoul Halloween nails.  Unfortunately, I have a sick kiddo home from school today so I have a moment to summarize what I have failed to share with you all this month.  I had some pretty fun manis this month;  I love Halloween nail art.  Wish I had more time to share with you all.  If you follow my insta you would have seen them all in real time.  So this time rather than going into detail I will just share the photo and if you want to know specific colors and stamping plates just ask in the comments and I will share.  I feel like this makes more sense rather than sharing them all in a separate blog posts – blowing up your inbox.

MEOW!!

 

Which look is your favorite?

Hope you have a great holiday—sadly I’ll miss October as it is my favorite month but bring on November!!

Happy polishing!

Eck spiders!!!!  I am super scared of spiders, so this is a perfect Halloween mani for me.

My two identical nails are my index and middle.  For these I used glitter base Square Hue Night Fever.  In black I stamped on spiders from MM11 Messy Mansion plate.  Then I used Wet n Wild Floral Support a jelly red over the top of the stamp.  These are the same polishes I used on my thumb but I used a Bundle Monster black widow stamp instead from bundle Monster BM-XL208.

My ring and pinky fingers have a Square hue black base called Iron Horse.  On my ring I added Night Fever glitter and stamped on a white spider web from Pueen Halloween Party 01 plate and a black spider from bundle monster plate BM-013.

On my pinky I added another spider web and spider from BM-H07.

The glitter glitz with the spiders is a fun twist on a scary Halloween mani.

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?

I had a lot of fun creating this look.  This is another 3:2 mani.  For my 3 I used Sinful Colors Demin n Bling KARGO.  This is a textured blue denim polish which dries matte ❤ I did use a clear top coat on my pinky for some shine.

For my 2 I created some dry marble decals on my bundle monster mat.  Used SC Kargo and SC Trend Matters Angel Buttercup.

BTS, pre cleanup

Once my decals dried using a clear top coat I applied the decals to my nails, trimmed access and cleaned up with a small paint brush and acetone.  Love this technique; I have not mastered the water marble so this is an easy way to get that look without all the hassle and headache.

I really love the final result ❤  Still drool over matte textured polishes 🙂
