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?

Week 4 – Green Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’m back with another manicure for the #31DC2017Weekly challenge. This week the prompt was green nails..yes I’m posting twice for the challenge this week because I am behind. IMG_0381

I didn’t want to go crazy this week just wanted something easy. I started off by painting my nails using Sinful Colors Mint Chip..I adore this polish! It is matte but I applied a shine top coat.

For the nail art, I used Sinful Colors Silhouette and swiped it once down my middle & rings nails. It’s a pretty light lavender with shimmer. Last but not least, I took a white nail striper, outlined the purple and then made a zig-zag!

I think this looks cute! Not too much and not too less.

Week 3: Yellow Nails – #31DC2017Weekly

Hey guys! I’ve been busy lately so I haven’t been keeping up on my posts..but I’m back for Week 3’s manicure. I am still a few weeks behind but I getting there. Yellow nails was the prompt..I am also not a huge yellow fan but I was willing to work with it. What turned out great was, I recently discovered a new Sinful Colors collection that had a neon yellow…perfect for this week!

I choose to use Sinful Colors Out In Space..it’s a bright neon yellow BUT make sure you buy the white base that goes with this line or it won’t be neon. I plan to make another post about this collection, stay tuned. Anyhow, I applied it to all my nails.

Coming up with a design/nail art for this week was tricky..I had way too many ideas but then I thought I’m going to give watermarbling a shot. I’ve never had real good luck with watermarbing, so any tips would be great! I used Wet n Wild’s French White Creme & Black Creme. It didn’t turn out as bad as it could have but they weren’t what I wanted. Good enough though! I will get better over time and more practice. I did place striping tape in random order over my nail before watermarbling.

I really liked the manicure though besides the watermarbling, the yellow is so bright!

Week 2 – Orange Nails – #31DCWeekly2017

Hey guys! I’m back for another week of the #31DCWeekly2017 manicure challenge. This week the prompt is orange nails. I don’t typically wear orange too often but I don’t mind it when I do. Let’s go.

Coming up with an idea/theme was a little tricky but I decided to go for leopard print. I started off with Peach Side Babe by Essie, this is such a pretty peachy, orange, coral color.  Essie polishes are not my favorite but I do use them once and a while. I believe I had to do 3 coats to get to my liking.

Next, I used French White Creme by Wet n Wild, I took a dotting tool and made blobs all over. I wanted to add a pop of color and make it unique, so I used Sail La Vie by Sinful Colors…took another dotting and outlined the blobs a little bit to make it leopard print. I love Sail La Vie..I’m going to have to purchase a new bottle soon. It’s a pretty in-between blue..it went perfect with the orange!

What’s your opinion on this manicure? Next is yellow nails..this is going to be harder so stay tuned!

Nails #56 – Sinful Colors Flip Tease

Hey guys! I believe I’m finally caught up with my nail looks as soon as I finish this post. If you noticed my posting schedule was off a bit that it is why. I will probably have already posted this once but I will say it again, I plan on giving the #31DCWeekly manicure challenge a shot. I am a few weeks behind but I will catch up quick. Anyhow, let’s get on with this post.

This mani is complete solid color, no nail art or anything special..so I guess we could consider it a swatch? Sure.

I used the color Flip Tease by Sinful Colors..this is the Kandee Johnson collection. It’s a very pretty mint green! It does have some pink & gold shimmer when you look at it from an angle. It applied great within 2 coats.

The one flaw I find with it..and this has only happened with this color out of all that I have, it a little bit of a green stain on all my nails..not much but just enough to notice. Hopefully it will go away soon!

That’s all for this post.
