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.

My go-to base coat & top coat.

Hey guys! So as you can all tell by my blog..it’s mainly all about nails.I thought I shared with you my favorite go-to base and top coat. Over the past few months I’ve tried different ones and I found the one! 

These two came in a 3 pack with a cleanser polish..but that one ended up breaking.

Salon Perfect Bonding Base Coat – this your suppose to apply after you use the cleanser but it doesn’t matter either way to me it works the same. It applies well but it can apply too thick. I normally brush off the extra before applying to my nail. It dries fairly quickly, unless you apply it too thick. When I use this my nail polish holds on just like it should. You want to make sure it’s dry though or it will smear up when you apply color.

Salon Perfect High Shine Top Coat – this is an excellent top coat! It does exactly what it says. The shine is remarkable and it holds all the polishes in lock too. It doesn’t take long for it to dry either maybe 5 minutes max..or just a tad longer. Same with the base coat, you want to make sure you don’t apply it too thick because it’s a thick polish. I don’t really have anything bad to say about this either.

You can find the pack at Walmart for sure..I haven’t checked other places. I believe I paid around $5 for it but it’s totally worth it.

If you tried this I would love to hear you opinion..I’m also still looking for a good matte top coat.

Nails #5, #6, and#7

I decided this time to combine a few different manicures I’ve worn over the past few weeks  together.

Nail #5: In this manicure, I used Essie’s: Watermelon & No Place like Chrome along with Sinful Colors: Queen of Beauty. I just wanted something simple but with an accent nail. This is my favorite red polish that I own.

Nail #6: In this manicure, I used Sinful Colors: Wonder Mint along with 2 nail stripers. Salon Perfect: White Out and Kiss Nail Art Paint in Silver. All I did was make a line halfway down my nail to the middle of the top of my nail, and then with the silver I did the same but just under the white. Pretty simple as well.

Nail #7: In the last manicure I wore, I used Orly: Scenic Route (I believe that’s the name, it doesn’t have name listed) and Nicole by OPI: The Next CEO. I used a large dotting tool to make the poka-dots. I love how this one turned out and I make have to try it again soon!
