Nail Diary #284

July 14th, 2014

Hey guys.  I have to quick type this up so we can have a fun family bike ride.  It is just gorgeous here in Iowa today.  I even have the air off and windows open.  Yay for non humid fresh air, sometimes it is just the little things 🙂

I can’t wait, I have some fun nails to share with you guys.

First I started with a white base.  To save time yesterday I used my Revlon top speed white Spirit.  Once Spirit dried I got out my good o’ triangle makeup sponge to help me achieve a gradient look using white polish with neon tips.  The white I used on my sponge is Orly Dayglow.  Dayglow is a white creme polish with a hint of a blue shimmer finish.  It was a perfect polish for the sponge, as the formula is a bit thick.  My neon ‘in yo face’ pink is Nina Ultra Pro Punki Pink.  Nina is not a typical brand I buy but Sally’s had this particular brand of neons on sale on Friday, so I just had to grab a few.  I mean one can never have too much neon polish, right?!?!

Once my gradient dried I knew I just had to add a stamp.  Even Mr Amie agreed it needed a stamp.  He helped me pick out Pueen buffet plate 51.  I am so addicted to these Pueen buffet plates, you can use them over and over and get a slightly different look each time.  Please make more Pueen 🙂  So using my Konad black polish I stamped on some semi lotus flower looking designs.  I couldn’t be happier with the finish result.  Just perfect for a mid summer mani.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤

Stay tuned for the next installment of the diary of a nail polish addict.

Happy middle of the week, we are over halfway to the weekend. Hooray!
Tonight’s nails are dark, matte and dangerous 😉
Played with three different polishes and a matte top coat.
I used my Wet n Wild fast dry black Ebony Hates Chris on my pinky, middle and index fingers. On my ring and thumb I used Zoya’s gold polish Brooklyn from the spring 2014 collection. I need to take moment to gush about Brooklyn. Typically I don’t love gold polish, especially frosty gold polish. But Brooklyn is beautiful. I can’t wait to play with this pretty another time.
I found a fun Orly glitter at a red tag Sally Beauty Supply sale called Star Trooper. Star Trooper is a multi size/color glitter; it is part of the 2014 Orly Galaxy FX collection. It’s a black jelly polish packed full of silver, gold and white multi size glitters. I put Star Trooper over my black middle finger and my gold ring finger and thumb. Then I added it to the cuticle side of my black pinky and index fingers.
Slapped on some Wet n Wild matte top coat and called it golden.
The contrast of the black and gold undies is fun, plus I absolutely love the matte top coat.
This Wet n Wild matte top coat is even better because it is cheap and I’m all about cheap.

What do you think of my dark understated glitter manicure, I kind of love it.

Thanks for stopping by!! ❤❤
