Hi guys! I’m back for my last week of catch up on the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge! After this post, I will be on the correct week as everyone else doing this challenge…this week was Polka-Dots.
I started off using Rise & Shine by Sinful Colors. I rarely use this color for some use but I think it’s very pretty and right up my alley. It does have some blue/green shimmer to it too.
For the polka-dots, I decided to go in a pattern instead of all over. I used to different sized dotting tools for the look. Colors I used were: French White Creme by Wet n Wild & Gold Medal by Sinful Colors.
This manicure looked great until I put a top coat on. I guess I didn’t give it long enough to dry and I got texture marks on them.
Overall, I looked the way it looked besides the texture marks and smudges which are a bummer. What’s your thoughts on this manicure?
Hey guys! It’s been almost a week since I have posted but I’m back for Week 10 of the #31DC2017Weekly manicure challenge..I will be caught up hopefully at the end of this week, finally!
I started off my painting all my nails using Petal Pushers by Essie. I typically don’t reach for my Essie polishes anymore but I’m trying to start again. I love this gray color because at times it has a purplish hue.
I’ve only done a gradient look a few times so this was a little tricky..even though it looks easy. I wanted to go for sunset colors so I used: YOLO Yellow by Sinful Colors, Lounge Lover by Essie, & Lavender Creme by Wet n Wild. I had to reapply several times..because I should have used white base! I wasn’t thinking very clear at all with this manicure.
I think it still looks great being that I’ve only done it a few times and could still use practice! What’s your thoughts?
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!
What’s your thoughts? Chat later!
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?
Hey guys! I’m back to share another nail look that I was rocking..this happens to be one of my favorites!
I started off by using Mint Chip by Sinful Colors (part of the Kandee Johnson collection) on all nails but my ring nails. This is just a pretty mint green..reminds me so much of mint chip ice cream, haha. It applies great and the opacity is fantastic. Also, it dries matte but I applied a shine top coat.
Next, I painted my ring nails using Wet n Wild’s French White Creme. This is just a simple white..you do have to apply 2 coats, maybe three if you use thin coats.
I pulled out my striping tape and applied 4 strips vertically on my middle nails and 4 strips horizontally on my ring nails. I wanted to go with a black and white theme sort of so I used Wet n Wild’s Black Creme on my ring nails and French White Creme on my middle nails. Then peeled the tape off and wa-la! I did have a little goof-up when removing the tape on my ring nail and it kinda sets my OCD off but I wasn’t about to redo it.
What are your thoughts on this look?
Hey guys! Wow, part 5 already. If you haven’t already noticed I’ve broken down the parts by brand/maker instead of color. This week I’m sharing my Wet n Wild collection. Let’s go!
Pinks & Orange
dreamy poppy – medium coral pink
lavender cream – medium/dark pink
blazed – peachy orange
who is ultra violet? – medium violet
Blue & Green
putting on airs – light baby blue
be more pacific – dark aqua
White & Black
french white creme – white
black creme – solid black
kaleidoscope – holographic glitter
As you can tell I don’t own that many from Wet n Wild..I think the polishes are great just I just don’t like the brush, it’s hard for me to handle being that the top is squarish.
Hey guys! I planned on getting this post the day before St Patricks day but it just didn’t happen..so here it is sooner than later.
I decided that I wanted most of my nails gold instead of green, so I grabbed Sinful Colors Gold Medal and applied it on my thumb, index, and pinkie nails.This happens to be my favorite and go-to gold polish. It’s not too shiny and not too dull. It always applies and holds well. When I thought I was finished..I wasn’t. I went on and applied Sinful Colors Feeling Lucky? glitter coat over the gold nails. This came out last year but I saw it also this year but I believe the green glitters where light green this year. It has shamrock glitters in it but I didn’t reach for any this time.
My middle nail didn’t turn out actually as pictured in my mind but close enough. For my base color I used Pure Ice’s Free Spirt..this is just a darker green, its applies well also. Next I took Wet n Wild’s Black Creme and swiped a line across my nail to make a belt. Then took Gold Medal brushed it off real good to make a belt buckle. This part was a little sloppy-er than I hoped but I wasn’t going to redo it.
I LOVE the way my ring nail came out..for once something turned out the way I hoped. I started with Wet n Wild’s French White Creme for a base. Next I took all the colors of a rainbow (I’ll list the ones I used below) and swiped a line or so of each until the nail was covered from bottom to top. It’s looks really pretty.
Red – Sinful Colors Folly, Orange – Revlon Sorbet, Yellow – Sinful Colors Pull Over, Green – Pure Ice Free Spirt, Blue – Sally Hansen Pacific Blue, Purple – Sally Hansen Purple Craze
I ended up where this mani a few day after St. Patricks day because I loved the rainbow nail so much. I’m definitely going to try it again in the future but with fewer colors!
