Hello lovelies! I’m back again with some more nail art. This post has been sitting in my drafts for a couple of days already, but between having a migraine and just being down right lazy this past weekend it’s just going up now! I mean catching up on sleep is always a good thing, but I hate feeling like I wasted the entire weekend doing nothing. There will be some neat nail art up on the blog this week though, so I’m not bumming too hard about it. But, back to this look! There’s two more days of January which gives me enough time for two more Nail Challenge Collaborative manicures. This one is inspired by a scarf, so let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

We’re still putting together winter themed manicures this month, so it only made sense to use a scarf as inspiration. This design was loosely based off of this one from Jessakae. I’m so tempted to buy it because it looks so comfy haha.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Time And Relative Dimension In Space.
  2. Once the base is dry, use a stripping brush and acrylic paint to add on the plaid pattern.
  3. Then using a dotting tool and Gulf Stream (press sample,) add on the polka dots.
  4. Allow that to set before dry brushing Over Sized Sweater on the tips.
  5. Clean up.
  6. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

And that’s a wrap! I mentioned in a post yesterday, that I’m over painting winter themed nail art but these were still really lovely to wear. Time And Relative Dimension In Space is one of my favorite LynBDesign polishes, so I love when I get to wear it! But, I’m curious to know what you guys think! Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts.

Ello lovelies! It’s Monday. Yay? Maybe. Is anyone ever happy on a Monday? Anyways, I’m here today to share some more Love, Angeline swatches with you guys! This will actually be the second to last post for this brand, which means that I need to get around to picking out the next one. I’ll probably end up posting a poll on my Instagram (@polishthosenail,) so make sure you’re following me there if you want a say in what brand you see next. Anyways, let’s get to today’s nails!

 love angeline, nails, nail polish, indie polish, polish those nails, swatch, love abides, purple, glitter

Name: Love Abides

Description: Bright purple (that can lean blue in some lights) with flakies and small glitters.

Release Information: Unsure

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: One coat of Rica’s Glossy Glam.

Formula: Applies more like a jelly, so sheer on the first coat but it builds up nicely. Careful with the flakies though, because these are the kind that will stick up weird on your nail.

Dry Time: About ten minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: My camera seriously hates these kinds of colors. Jerk. This polish isn’t as blue as it’s pulling in these photos, but I still like it! The only thing that I’m not totally sold on is the flakies. They look really neat, but I think they’re the mylar ones so they have a tendency to stick up off your nail. It’s nothing a little manipulating can’t fix though.

Name: Calm Waters

Description: Periwinkle blue matte with pink shimmer.

Release Information: Spring 2016 Sea Escape Collection

Number of Coats: Three coats.

Topcoat: None.

Formula: Very sheer, but applies smoothly.

Dry Time: About ten minutes for each layer.

Staining: None.

Wear Time: N/A (only worn long enough to swatch.)

My thoughts: I wish this polish wasn’t so sheer, because this could have been my favorite matte polish ever! Like seriously ever. Each coat applied so easily and the finish is so incredibly smooth, but I can’t get pass seeing my nail line (the bald spot on my ring finger was from user error.) I’ll have to try layering this over some different bases, because I love the color of this.

Can you guys guess what inspired this nail art? Probably not, because I literally used a photo of cabbage (by Phil Gates) as inspiration. Yes. You read that. Cabbage inspired nail art that doesn’t even look like cabbage. This week is starting off weird already haha.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Love Abides.
  2. Add a layer of Rica’s Glossy Glam.
  3. Once that’s dry, add the pattern on using acrylic paint and a detail brush.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Adesse’s Ultra Suede Matte Top Coat.

Now, for some nail art that makes more sense haha. The polish is named after water, so that’s what I painted! This abstract design was inspired by this print created by Hello Nobo.

Sadly, Love, Angeline has recently closed down her shop so neither of these are available for purchase. But, you never know what you’ll come across in a blog sale or destash. So, keep your eyes open if one of these caught your eye! I just noticed that she’s still selling grab bags, so make sure to check out the following links if you’re interested in one of those:

Oh hello again! There is going to be a little bit of double posting happening this week, since I kind of slacked off at the end of last week for whatever reason. I’ve been doing so well at keeping up with my blogging until like Thursday rolls around, but no more! Boom! I’m determined to kick blogging and the gym’s butts this week! And, this is getting a little violent/out of hand (hehe pun,) so we’re going to reign this in and get to the nails. It’s been so long since there’s been galaxy nails on the blog, so let’s get to it!

Here is what I used:

This month for The Digit-al Dozen, we’re celebrating Shelly’s (from Sassy Shellybirthday. She wanted us all to do galaxy manicures, so that’s what we did! This is the exact picture that she gave us for inspiration.

  1. Start by applying three coats of Magnetic Midnight.
  2. Then using a ripped piece of makeup sponge, add on the other polishes. I started by applying These I Like, then layering the other colors over that, and finishing with a little bit of Ghost Of Jupiter.
  3. Add some polka dots of These I Like with a dotting tool.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Glossy Glam.

Writing this post has been so hard, because I’m trying to control my ranting about Tonic Polish haha. But, come on man. My order for the entire Winter Collection and the Exclusive Color4Nails Duo came in the other day, and they’ve been sitting on my desk taunting me. I’m so happy that I finally got to try some of them out, and as usual, they are incredible<3 Anyways, let me know what you guys think of this look! Also, if you own the Tonic Winter Collection, which polish is your favorite?

Happy Sunday lovelies! Hopefully your weekend has been treating you well. I feel like they just keep getting shorter and shorter, and it’s such a bummer. Or maybe I’m just feeling that way since I spent all day yesterday in bed with a migraine, it was such a waste of a day. But moving on! I have a bunch of nail art to squeeze in before January is over in three days (how the heck are we already a month into 2017?!) Anyways, this post is all about flakies and a swirl. Let’s get to the nails!

Here is what I used:

This weekend for the Nail Crazies Unite challenge, we’re all posting our blue and white manicures. We don’t have much snow where I live, but it’s still super cold so the color combination is fitting for the weather haha. But, that still doesn’t change the fact that I’m over painting winter manicures. So, I decided to go for a more abstract pattern. These little tumblers, that were shown on the Edible Garden blog, are really pretty so I used them as my inspiration.

nails, nail art, nail polish, swirl, blue, white, polish those nails, indie polish, pattern

  1. Start by applying three coats of Bed Of Snow Flakies.
  2. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the pattern. I found it easiest to paint on the swirl parts first then go back in for the little added dashes.
  3. Clean up.
  4. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

So, what do you guys think? I’m absolutely in love with how these turned out, and I’m so happy that I was able to wear these for a few days. I’ve been loving every single Anchor & Heart Lacquer polish that I’ve tried so far, and Bed Of Snow Flakies is no exception. The silver flakie bits play so well in the white base and with the blue nail art over top.  But, enough of me rambling. Leave me a comment down below with your thoughts. I’d love to hear them!

Happy Wednesday lovelies! Today means that we are halfway through the week, woo! My goal is to get a ton of blogging stuff done this weekend, so I’m ready for it to get here already. We still have to make it through a few more days, so until then, let’s look at some nail art. Today’s nails are all about jewels, so onto the polish!

Here’s what I used:

Not only did I get to knock out two untried polishes with this look, but I also picked out two that haven’t been cabochoned yet! And yes, I totally just made up my own verb. Cabochoning 2017, it’s happening. Be on the look out. Can we all take a guess at who might be a little overtired? Anywho, this pattern is actually a recreation of this look that I did back in 2014 (the original print was designed by Andrea Lauren.)

nails, nail art, nail polish, indie polish, jewels, polish those nails, purple

  1. Start by applying two coats of Huckleberry Sparkle.
  2. Then using a ripped piece of makeup sponge, dab on Butterfly Nebula and Polish Con 2016.
  3. Once the base is dry, use acrylic paint and a detail brush to add on the jewels.
  4. Clean up.
  5. Finish with a coat of Tonic Topper.

I am absolutely in love with how these turned out, and there is a 99.9% chance that this is still on my nails right now haha. The base polishes mixed so well together, and all of the sparkle is seriously giving me life. Also, still don’t really know what that means, it’s fine. But, my favorite part of this design is seeing the improvement from the 2014 manicure to this version. The designs aren’t exactly the same, but the overall look here is so much more appealing than the older version. These lines look rougher, but I still like this updated manicure better. Make sure to let me know what you guys think down below! I’d love to hear which look you prefer better too? 2014 versus 2017! Let’s go!

Thank you guys so, so much for reading! Make sure to check back tomorrow for more nail art!
