Week 16: Geometric – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! We are on week 16 of the #31DCWeekly manicure challenge..halfway through and I have to say I’m glad I choose to do it. I have been having so much fun coming up with ideas and trying things I wouldn’t normally do! It’s opened my eyes a little more. Anyway, this week’s prompt was geometric nails. Since I already did the chevron stamping I choose a little cooler of a pattern. Let’s go.

I started off by using ‘Kommotion’ by Sinful Colors..it was part of the KJC collection a while back. I like this color because it’s a purple with blueish tints. It also a gold shimmer in it which I tried to capture in a photo below.

Next, I pulled out my Pueen Party Lover stamping plate, and choose a pattern that looked geometric to me. It’s got lines & small circles. After a few days of wearing it, I finally discovered what it is of in my opinion, I think it’s palm tree leaves? Possibly. I used the white stamping polish that came with the kit.

 

I really liked how this manicure looks. The color & stamping work great together! Thoughts?

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?

Nails #52 – Pinterest Inspired

I know today I would normally post a book review but I’ve been slacking on my reading lately..bummer but I hope to get back at it soon. 

Hey guys! Today’s nail post is inspired by a mani I saw on Pinterest. I normally browse through pinterest when I need a boost..and this time it worked. Here’s the link for it and they even give you a rundown of each step..but I will tell you what I did also.

I decided not to do the designs on all my nails just my middle & ring nails. SO, to start I painted my thumb, index, and pinky nails with Sinful Colors Kurtain Kall (part of the Kylie Jenner Collection). This is a pretty blue with gold shimmer..and semi-matte.

Next, I painted my middle & ring nails with Wet n Wild’s French White Creme..this is my go-to white. I took Kurtain Kall and made half a triangle across the top and right side of my middle nail..left side for my ring nail (hope that explains it). Lastly, I took Sinful Colors Gold Medal and made a half triangle on the lower portion each nail..you want the white part that’s showing to look like a whole triangle, make sense? I hope!

I topped my nails with my Revlon Matte Top Coat. This mani was pretty easy and simple to do. What’s your thought?

Nails #37 using Silhouette, Gold Medal, & Fuchsia U!

Hey guys! Today is Monday and time for another nail post.

I’ve been experimenting with my thin nail tape, trying to see what different shapes and figures I can make.

Thumb, Index, and Pinky Fingers – Sinful Colors (KJC) ‘Silhouette’. This has to be one of my favorite purples. It’s a darker lilac with gold shimmer. img_0415

Middle & Ring Fingers – Sinful Colors ‘Gold Medal’. This is one of my go-to accent nail polishes..just a simple gold.

I’m going to try and explain how I made the shapes using nail tape. For my middle finger, I took 2 pieces and formed a triangle. Then laid 2 pieces horizontal. I used Sinful Colors (KJC) ‘Fuchsia U!’. Then peeled the tape away.

For my index finger, I took 1 piece of nail tape and placed it diagonally across my nail. Then made placed a piece vertically and horizontally. Used the same color and peeled away.

I like the end result. It was a little challenging but always up for one.
