It's so hot and sunny here lately (where I live it's summer) that I've been dreaming about the beach for the last few days, all the sand and the sun with an umbrella cocktail in one hand and a good book in another. Your toes and nails painted in some neon call everyone's attention color.... Enough daydreaming!
My nails are inspired by the sea, I used a few polishes for this so I'm gonna list them below:
Essie Turquoise and Caicos, 3 coats, base color
Essie Shine Of Times, 1 coat, flakies.
Zoya Breezi + CH4 for the waves
Sally Hansen Sonic Boom + Mash 35 (starfish) and SH19 (fish)
I love how this design turned out, I feel like the hidden flakies give it that sense of the sun hitting the water in a pool. What do you think?
Thanks for reading <3
I have my first fall/thanksgiving nail art today. I used Sally Hansen Lava as the base color and then stamped the leaves with China Glaze Passion. I absolutely love how it turned out, the colors all compliment each other really well and after I painted my nails I couldn't stop staring at my fingers.
I don't exactly remember the number of plate I used for the leaves but as soon as I do I'll update this post. Update: the plate I used is Konad M83.
Thanks for reading <3
I have a new nail polish to show you guys. I got this one last month while on vacation in Florida, this is one of those polishes that caught your eye and you don't even bother to look at the price. This will be a bit pic heavy.
This polish is a duo chrome that shifts between gold, copper and some pinkish fuchsia shade, I fell in love with it completely and it just reminded me of fall. For these swatches I used 3 coats and no top coat.
Do you have this color? Did you picked up any of the other shades in this collection? Post a link in the comments below if you did cause I wanna check them out.
Thanks for reading.
It's been sunny and warm here in Costa Rica since the beginning of the year so I felt like wearing something according to the weather. In this case I chose Sally Hansen Sun Kissed. I don't usually wear orange polish but I thought it would go perfect with some glitter on top.
First off the swatches without anything else. In these pics I have 2 coats and no top coat.
Don't you just wanna squeeze my nails : ). As for the glitter part I chose Kleancolor Shooting Star which is a mix of teal, gold, red hexagonal glitter and some small hexagonal silver glitter on an orangy base. This is just one coat of the glitter.
And of course the Macro Shot of this lovely glitter:
Do you like this combo? I think it would be perfect for the summer months.
Thank you for reading <3
Today is the happiest day of the year and I have the exact nails to match the day. They were inspired by my t-shirt for today. I used 2 coats of OPI Rainbow Connection and a coat of Sally Hansen Sheer Strawberry in between each coat. Take a look:
And finally a pic of the T-shirt that started it.
Have you tried Rainbow Connection yet? Does this combo makes you think Deborah Lippmann Candy Store?
For today I have my nail of the day and a few pics I've taken in the last couple of days from the China Glaze Let It Snow Collection.
For the NOTD I used Sally Hansen Lively Lilac+ China Glaze Afterglow + BM 208 . Take a Look:
And this is a pic of Lively Lilac before the nail art.
And now let's move on to this year's Let It Snow Collection from China Glaze, I still have to swatch 3 more polishes from this collection but I wanted to share what I have so far.
Ring in the Red
Blue Year's Eve
My favorites so far are Twinkle Lights, Tinsel Town and Glittering Garland. What do you think? Have you bought any of the polishes of this collection?
I hope everyone is enjoying their weekend, I personally have to work so I might not have as much fun.
Anyways, today when I woke up it was all sunny and bright outside which meant I needed a bright manicure in my fingers so I used Color Club Yum Gum with a top coat of Sally Hansen's crackle in Vintage Violet that my boyfriend got for me a couple of weeks ago in Florida.
I actually like this crackle better than China Glaze Fault Line. This one has a very pretty blue shimmer on it that makes it look way prettier. Here's a close up.
What do you think? Did you bought any of the Sally Hansen Crackles?
It's finally Saturday and I found some time to paint my nails.
I decided to try the Sally Hansen HD in Spectrum.
I really like this color, it's such a shimmery, glittery blue <3
I added a few stamps, just because I felt like something extra. I used Konad's M14 plate for the little gift on my ring finger and the stars on my other fingers.
I just wanted to add a picture of the bottle in daylight cause I think the color looks awesome and it has some purplish reflex to it that you can't really see in the other pics.
I hope everyone has a great weekend!! :-)
I hope you're all enjoying your Super Bowl Sunday.
I'm not a big fan of football so I probably won't be watching the game (at least not entirely) instead, I decided to try another Valentine's Day manicure.
This was something I thought yesterday at work, it is really simple to do.
First, I used white as base color to paint my nails and I added a silver glitter on top of it to make it more fun.
Second, I added the little heart with a shimmery dark red color and the little hearts from my Bundle Monster plate BM03.
I applied a clear top coat to that and waited for it to be completely dry.
Now, for the cheetah part I used masking tape to cover the little heart in the design and sponged the rest of my nail with China Glaze Good Witch.
Finally, just stamp the cheetah design from the Konad plate M57 with a hot pink color and you're done!
Hope you like it,
