Week 9: Rainbow Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back for this weeks #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge..this week the theme is Rainbow nails. I normally don’t do rainbows..I tend to use a lot of colors but never rainbow themed. I was inspired this week by a manicure I did years ago when I was first adventuring into nail art. It turned out a really well for not having a lot of experience with dotting tools or nail stripers. I did a cupcake manicure..here’s the picture.

So for this weeks manicure I decided to do pink nails with colorful polka-dots. I used Pink Velvet by Sinful Colors for my base color..it’s just a pretty medium pink with texture. The downsize for this polish was it chipped easily. For the polka dots, I used Purple POP! by Salon Perfect, YOLO Yellow, Mint Chip, and Candy Heart all by Sinful Colors.

Week 8: Metallic Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! This weeks manicure theme for the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenger is metallic nails! I’m still out of my groove a little and couldn’t think of anything to do..so I went simple & easy..just like last week.

I recently bought the color Taupe is Dope by Sinful Colors and I’ve been dying to use it..it’s a brown, plumy, gray color..very fall like. I thought it would go great with bronze for the metallic portion of the manicure. I used Nicole by OPI’s It Starts With Me. It’s a very shimmer shiny bronze.

I just applied taupe is dope to my thumb, index, and pinky nails..and then applied it starts with me to my middle & ring nails..then I used my dotting tools to do dots down the middle of a few nails.

It was that simple..hopefully next week’s will be more fun.

Week 7: Black & White Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hi guys! I’m back with another weekly manicure for the #31DC2017Weekly, manicure challenge. This weeks theme was black and white nails. I had to bounce around for ideas..I’m not one that likes to wear just black and white. I wasn’t in the creative mood either, so I went simple.

I decided to use yellow as a base color..yes I said yellow! I’m slowly trying to warm up to the color. I recently found this color called YOLO Yellow by Sinful Colors and I actually like it. It’s not too golden and not too pale for me.

For the black & white, I just took a black and a white nail striper and made vertical lines on my middle nails & chevron lines on my ring nails.

I just wasn’t together for this weeks manicure..gotta get back into my groove.

Tulips & Daffodils

Hey guys! It’s been almost a week since I’ve posted, I’ve been meaning to but I have been a little busy. Me & my mom opened an Etsy shop together, I have been focusing on getting that setup and everything. We’ve also been having some great weather so I got out and enjoyed it..did some yard work, planted flowers and just hung around with family. But since yesterday, the weather has been hot, at least to me as I don’t like or do good in hot weather..we reached 87 degrees yesterday and 84 degrees today! Ugh, I’m over Summer already. Yesterday was also a terrible day for me, besides the heat..I just recently got a new phone and the screen shattered..I accidentally drop it, even with a case..I suspect the heart may have had a little affect on it being it was so warm. So, bear with me on my photos until I receive a new phone thank goodness for protection plans!

Anyhow, I thought I would share some pictures of my Spring flowers that bloomed over the past few weeks/months. They were very pretty but didn’t last too long because the weather was acting crazy..and it frosted. They came up in March when normally they don’t until May..ugh Mother Nature, get your head together!

Lots of photos. I love taking pictures of them though and using them as wallpapers for my computer & phone.

I hope you all enjoyed this post & I brought some happiness to your day. Chat later!

Week 6 – Violet Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hi guys! I’m on week 6 of the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge, this week’s prompt was Violet nails. I went crazy with the purples..let me just say that.

I started off by painting my nails with Silhouette by Sinful Colors..it’s a light purple. Next I took Purple Diamond which a glitter overcoat with a slight purple tint..I mean slight tint. I just applied that to my thumb, index, and pinky nails.

This is where I decided to two different designs on both hands. On my left hand, I laid several pieces of tape in ‘x’ shapes I believe…then I filled the openings in. I used several polishes, Gold Medal by SC, Purple Pop! by Salon Perfect, Who is Ultra Violet by Wet n Wild, Purple Craze by Sally Hansen, and It’s All a Bluer by Pure Ice.

The only difference on my right hand is, I just made one ‘x’ with the striping tape..and used a few less polishes. Also, I rarely ever take photos of my right hand so that’s why fingers are weird, haha.

What’s your thoughts on this weeks manicure?

Mini Nail Polish Haul…

Hi guys! I picked up a couple new polishes I saw and something I’ve been searching for, forever and I thought I’d share them with you.

The item I’m really happy I finally found is a latex tape that you can apply around your cuticles when your doing water-marbling or stamping which is something I hope to try soon. The one I found is by Pueen..it claims that it’s mess free latex tape. You can brush it on, apply your polish, and peel it away! I’m so happy to have finally found it..I purchased my at Walmart for around $5 I believe.

I grabbed 2 Sinful Colors polishes…first is YOLO Yellow. I’ve never really worn yellow nails..it just that color that doesn’t speak to me or look great in my opinion. For some reason this color stuck out to me. It’s not too bright or too pale, I think it will work for me and my skin-tone. The other color I grabbed was Taupe is Dope! The color is interesting, it’s a light brown but has sorta a gray plum tone. It called to me. I think it will be a great fall color but I’m definitely going to try it sooner than that.

Week 5 – Blue Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back with another #31DC2017Weekly manicure, this week’s prompt was Blue Nails. Yes, I am still a few weeks behind but I’m still having fun coming up with ideas.

This time I decided to try my take on galaxy nails..I didn’t have a cosmetic wedge on hand to sponge it so I did my best with just the brush. I used a ton of polishes so hopefully you don’t get confused.

I started off with using Sinful Colors Deep End as a base color for all my nails but middle & ring nails. For those I used Wet n Wild French White Creme.

Next I used Blueberry Hot Rod by SC, to give a glitter effect on all nails but middle & ring nails. That’s all I did for those nails.

I used Cold Leather, Ice Blue, Blueberry Hot Rod, Deep End (by Sinful Colors), all to make the galaxy look. I just filled in over the white..didn’t really a have pattern really. Lastly, I took Hottie which is a glitter coat with a blue tint and went over both nails.

I think my attempt went really well! Sorry for the picture quality on the first photo.

I loved how it turned out. What’s your thoughts?
