A few months back I was scrolling through my Instagram and I just fell in love with this mani from @susieq1980 ! It looked stunning on her and I wanted to give it a shot myself! I am really proud of the way it came out!

I used a bunch of different colors so here we go!

Thumb and Middle- 1 coat of Color Club Hydrangea Kiss topped with 2 coats of Revlon Girly
Index- 2 coats of Color Club Hydrangea Kiss. Spots with Color Club Blue-Ming and Laven-Darling
           Outlines with black acrylic paint
Ring- base of OPI Alpine Snow. Color Club Hydrangea Kiss, Laven-Darling, Blue-ming, and                                
          Blushing Rose sponged on top. Then to top it off, 1 coat of China Glaze Fairy Dust.

TIOT- Kleancolor Sangria Burst

Hey everyone!

For today's Try it on Tuesday I have a polish from Kleancolor! I am fairly new to this brand and I only own a couple. From the ones that I have tried, I do like them so far! I chose Sangria Burst to try on today!

It is so bright! I absolutely love this color!! Shown is two coats. It dries to a matte finish, but I wasn't to big on that so I added a topcoat.

What do you think of this color? would you wear it? Thanks for stopping by!!

Julie G Frosted Gumdrops- Hot Cinnamon & Tangerine Dream

Hey everyone!

I saw a post from Cristina (@L_T_H_P) on Instagram recently, and I really wanted to recreate the look! She paired two polishes together from the Julie G Frosted Gumdrops collection and they looked gorgeous!

I stared off with 1 coat of Julie G Hot Cinnamon and then added 1 coat of Tangerine Dream on top! I think it looks absolutely gorgeous! The pair reminds me of OPI Liquid Sand in Jinx, although I don't have that color to compare swatches. This is without topcoat, because the polishes are made to be texture polishes.

And here it is with topcoat! So shiny! The colors are just absolutely beautiful!

Would you wear these two together? Thanks for stopping by!

Try It On Tuesday! Zoya Wednesday and Zuza

Hey everybody!

Today I have something new that I am going to start doing on the blog! Gini from Sassy Paints came up with something genius called Try It On Tuesday, which I will be participating in! TIOT is where every tuesday, you can post a polish (or two) that you haven't used yet! Then you can email her and she will post your manicure, along with everyone else who participated, on her Facebook as a collective album! I really love this idea because I have a lot of polishes that I would love to try out, but never end up reaching for!

For today's TIOT, I have two polishes from Zoya!! First up we have Wednesday, which is just an absolutely gorgeous color!! This polish went on flawlessly in 2 coats! Shown is without top coat, and it is still sooo shiny!

Next up I have Zoya Zuza! This is also another perfect and gorgeous color! I just layered one coat over Wednesday and it looks awesome! I can't stop starring! It reminds me of a mermaid!

I absolutely love both of these Zoya polishes! What do you think of these two?

Thanks for stopping by!

Wet n' Wild- Break the Ice & China Glaze- White Cap

Hey everyone!

Today I have two polishes to show you! If you haven't noticed, I'm kinda in love with Wet n' Wild Break the Ice. I was looking at my polishes and picked up China Glaze White Cap. I thought they would go well together, and boy was I right!

I started with 2 coats of Break the Ice and then added 1 coat of White Cap on top. I absolutely love this combo, plus it looks stunning in person!! You can't really tell what the two look like, so here is a blurry picture.

You can see a little more of the color shift, especially in the bottle!

What do you think of this subtle combination? Thanks for stopping by, and I'll have a little something new and different up tomorrow!

Geometric Skittlette

Hey everyone!

I really have been wanting to expand on the amount of nail art that I do! Right now I'm sticking to simple things, but at least I'm trying something! Today I have a really awesome mani for you all! I decided to try a skittlette, of which Marta from Chit Chat Nails created and is known for!

I love the way the geometric nails came out! They could use some work, but it looks pretty good for a first try! On my thumb and pointer I have 3 coats of Essie Where's My Chauffeur? On my middle and ring fingers I started with a base of OPI Alpine Snow and then using a small striping brush to make the triangles, I used Essie Where's My Chauffeur?, Sinful Colors Sugar n' Spice, and Wet n' Wild Black Creme. Then for my pinkie I started with a base of Pure Ice Beware and topped it with OPI Which is Witch? 

What do you think of this mani? Would you wear it? Thanks for reading!!

Funky French!

Hey everyone!

Today I have a fun french manicure for you all! French tips aren't really my thing, but I thought I would give it a shot! I decided to do a striped french!

I decided to use some beachy props! I thought they were theme fitting!

For this look I used the colors:
Revlon Dreamy
OPI I Saw... U Saw... We Saw... Warsaw
China Glaze Aquadelic
China Glaze Hanging in the Balance
Sally Hansen Breezy Blue

I taped off the tip of my nail and used a small detail brush to make the stripes.

I'm extremely happy with the way these came out! I might have to try something similar with a different color scheme!
Here is an artsy pic for ya! I really like this!

Thanks for reading!

Happy 4th! Sugar Spun nails!

Hey everyone! Happy 4th of July!

Today I have a patriotic mani, DUH!! I decided on trying some sugar spun nails! I really like the way they came out, especially for a first try! Of course there is room for improvement, but this is what the final product looks like! Oh and excuse the boo-boo on my pinkie :P

For a base I used two coats of OPI Alpine Snow. Then I created the "sugar" with Sinful Colors Endless Blue and Revlon Revlon Red. I didn't add a top coat because of the 3D effect that the polish made. Go check out Sammy from The Nailasaurus' tutorial for this look on her blog!

I'm in love!! What do you think about this look? Would you try sporting this look?
