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!

Had to try out another one of my new KB Shimmer polishes (I got 9 in my last haul shhh don't tell Mr Am1e). I wanted to go a little girly with a dark accent. KB Shimmer Turning Pointe is a girly pink HOLO glitter AHHHHHHmazing. I out Zoya Storm which is black with a tiny bit of holo finish on my index finger. I have to say I kinda like the index accent nail. Just adds a lil something ya know 🙂

I absolutely love how this mani turned out. Look at that HOLO glitter…I DIE!!

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.

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.

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 ❤

Excited to share this fiery 3:2 fall manicure!

On my thumb, index and pinky I used Zoya Ember, Ember is a beautiful liquid metal red.  I absolutely love metallic polishes with a matte top coat.

On my middle and ring fingers I made DIY nail decals using Ember and Mirajane.  Mirajane is an ultra neon new from Zoya this summer.  To make my decals I applied Ember to my Bundle Monster Lotus mat and then took both colors and swirled; like a water marble but without water.  I let those dry and then applied to my nail wet with clear top coat and did some clean up.

This is the end result.  In my head I envisioned FIRE and ICE.

DIY nail decals; matte

Here it is comparing matte and shine top coat ❤

I personally like the matte better.

This is a perfect fall manicure.  I love this fiery RED!
