Good evening lovelies! It is quite late right now, and I am just getting the chance to sit down to write this blog post. Dang. I might be ready for bed, but that’s not going to stop me from sharing some nail art with you all! So, nail polish. A few weeks back, the Nail Crazies Unite posted some manicures using red and black polish and I finally am getting around to posting my flapper-inspired look (almost two weeks later…but it’s cool.) So, onto the nails!

Here is what I used:

Red nail polish is seriously so bizarre to me. I always convince myself that I like it, and I buy enough of it to justify them having their own drawer in my Helmer. But, the color weirds me out once I get it on my nails, especially when they have some length to them. That probably makes absolutely no sense, but I don’t know how to explain it haha. Anyone else get weirded out by certain colors? Or not? You can tell me I’m weird, it’s fine. Anyways, this design was inspired by this flapper dress from the 1920s!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Amal.
  2. Then add a layer of Red Light on top.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the design. I found it easiest to paint the frame first and then fill in the other details.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, what do you guys think? This is definitely a look where I prefer the photos over actually wearing it. Don’t get me wrong, the polishes are gorgeous and I’m glad that I can show them off here on the blog. But, I don’t see myself wearing a ton of red nail polish anytime soon haha. But, leave me a comment down below with your thoughts! Are you a red polish lover?

Oh hello again! It’s super late and yet here I am, still writing blog posts. Spending most of the day in bed is a lovely concept until it gets to be 1 am and you’re wide awake even though all you want to do is sleep…meh. But, I figured why not take advantage of this situation and share more nail art with you guys. This time around it’s all about galaxy nails, so let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

So, I totally walked away from my computer in the middle of writing this and completely lost my whole train of thought for this post. Welp. Well. It’s now 3:30 in the morning, and I’m still wide awake so why not do some more blogging? One of the themes that the Challenge Your Nail Art group tackled last month was galaxy nails, so here’s my take on it!

  1. Start by applying two coats of Blanche.
  2. Then using some ripped up pieces of makeup sponge, sponge on the other polishes (Olaf’s Snowflowers was previously reviewed here.)
  3. Then using a dotting tool and acrylic paint (not pictured,) add on some small dots for stars.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

Welp, these were an attempt at galaxy nails haha. It looks more like a punch of glitter just kind of puked all over my nails, but honestly I’m digging it! Anything that sparkles is sure to catch my eye, so I can’t even be mad at these being a fail haha. But, let me know what you guys think? Do these remind you of a galaxy or Kesha’s TiK ToK days? Make sure to leave me a comment down below.

Hello lovelies! How has everyone’s weekend been so far? I had so many plans to get things done around my apartment and for the blog, but I think I’m getting sick…so yeah. My bed and I have been best friends today haha. I can write blog posts in bed though, so I do have some things to share with you guys. Like this all blue nail art! Onto the polish!

Here’s what I used:

The theme for this past week of 30 Days Of Colour Challenge called for some blue nails. Which I was totally game for, because blue nail polish is my favorite! Also, on top of that, I had some untried Tonic Polishes that fit the prompt perfectly! And you guys know that I had to add a pattern. This manicure already had two of my favorite things going for it, so it made sense to add another of my favorite things on top. This particular one was inspired by this print by Ashley Goldberg (who I just realized has an Instagram and I’m stoked about it!)

  1. Start by applying two coats of Dragons At Dusk.
  2. Then using saran wrap dab on a little bit of Luminescent.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the circles.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

So, what do you guys think? I absolutely adore this look! I mean it has my favorite color, my (current) favorite indie brand and my favorite type of nail art. How could I not love it?! The best part of this look has to be the way that Luminescent looks sponged over the base. Tonic released a few other light mulitchromes in different colors, and I am so excited to experiment with them. But, until then. Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts!

Good evening lovelies! I hope you all are having a lovely week so far. Can you believe that we are only one day away from the weekend? This week has felt like it’s been dragging and I’m looking forward to some down time. Anyways, nail polish. Yesterday, we focused on sparkly nails to get us through the middle of the week. Now, it’s time for some bright nails to finish the work week out!

Here’s what I used:

Dang, it’s been almost three months since I last wore neons. I’m usually not a firm believer in sticking to seasonally appropriate nail art, but it’s still been a while since I’ve rocked some bright nails. Anyways! These distressed nails were inspired by this print by Marcello Velho! The original print is beautiful with the blue and white together, but I’m loving how it looks done with bright polish!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Sun Worshiper.
  2. Then add a layer of 221B on top.
  3. Once the base is dry, use the distressed technique to add on Purple Panic.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Shine Xcel.

nails, nail art, nail polish, bright, neon, orange, pink, glitter, polish those nailsI used to wear bright, bold polish all the time when I first started the blog. But, my tastes have changed and now I gravitate either towards dark colors or neutrals depending on my mood. So, these nails were a super fun change of pace! A bunch of people complimented my nails when I wore these, and it was probably because they could seen from a mile away haha. The mix of the darker, more subdue glitter against the neon was my favorite part. But, as always, I want to know what you guys think! Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts.

Ello lovelies! I have another late night coming at you guys, but hopefully you guys don’t mind. This look is full of sparkle and to me that’s the perfect way to wrap up a Wednesday! Think of this post as a little bling to help get you through the rest of the work week. I love having something shiny on my nails to distract myself from staring at the clock while waiting for the weekend. So, let’s get to it!

Here’s what I used:

That first picture is so out of focus…whoops haha. The sparkle and my camera did not want to get along for these photos, but luckily the rest turned out well. Which can we take a minute to talk about this polish? KathleenLights was the first beauty YouTuber that I started watching when I was first getting into makeup. So, I was really excited when she announced that she was launching her own polish company! I own all of her polishes, but this is actually my first time wearing one of the them. This glitter was a great introduction to the brand, and I can’t wait to try out the other polishes!

  1. Start by applying three coats of Das Esspensive.
  2. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern.
  3. Clean up.
  4. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

Now, about the nail art! These business cards, that I believe were created by Ana Maria Munoz, were the inspiration for this look. It’s a simple design, but I love how it popped against the glittery base. This is my only champagne toned micro glitter, so I’m looking forward to utilizing this polish more in the future. Until then, make sure to leave me a comment down below with your thoughts. I love to read what you guys think!
