Hole Hearted over Orly!

Hey lovelies!
Today I'm going to show you All That Glitters - Hole Hearted over 2 new Orly polishes I just bought. I never really bought Orly polishes, the only one I owned was Fowl Play (and the 2 I got in my swap yesterday!), but I was at Sally's and saw these 2 on sale for $3 and I had to buy them!
For this I used Orly - Butterflies (pink), Spark (yellow), All That Glitters - Hole Hearted, and 2 coats of SV.




I love Hole Hearted over both of these colors, I think it looks really fun and cute. Hole Hearted was a pain to work with, it was so hard to get the hearts from the bottle, I kept having to let the bottle sit upside down so they would come to the top and I could grab them. Both of the Orly polishes have 3 coats, Butterflies was very sheer and jelly like.

I hope you're all having a lovely day, thanks for reading!

Color Blocking with Warhol!

Hey lovelies!
The other day I used Color Club Warhol for a gradient, and my fiance made a comment about me using pink since I never do, so I decided to use it again!
I wanted to freehand some designs, I keep saying I will then fail and give you guys more swatches lol, so I came up with this from my nail wheel post a few days ago.


Sadly I only ended up with one usable picture because I couldn't stop coughing and my pictures came out blurry, and then I got distracted by my epic nail mail (which I will show you tomorrow).

Thanks for reading everyone, and being patient with my lack of posting because of this sickness.
I hope you're all having a great day!

Neon Gradient!

Hey lovelies!
I'm surprised I have another post for you today, can you tell I'm feeling better?
I was looking through my polish and decided to do something I haven't done in awhile, a gradient! Obviously I had to go with neon colors!
For this I used - Color Club - Warhol, China Glaze - Beach Cruise-R, and Nubar - Black Polka Dot.




I really like the way it turned out, I want to try this again with a yellow and neon green.
Can you tell I love neons? lol.

I hope you're all having an amazing day, enjoy this beautiful weather!

UPDATE!

Hey everyone!
Thank you for being patient with me, I'm still very sick, so I apologize for not blogging. I can't seem to shake this cold, and I keep meaning to post but I haven't been painting my nails because of this so I've had nothing to post.
I will be showing you the China Glaze Summer Neons collection soon, I promise!
I just need to work on getting better right now, and then I will be back.. which will be soon I hope.  I've been taking cough medicine, and having lots of soup and tea.. but if it doesn't get better I will be going to do the doctors soon because this cold is killing me.

Thank you for all your kind words, and all the emails I've been getting, I really appreciate all the love and the get well wishes.

Have a great day everyone!

1 YEAR BLOGIVERSARY!

Hey lovelies!
Today is my 1 year blogiversary! I can't believe it's already been a year, time really flies!
I actually started posting about nails over a year ago, first I posted pictures of my nails on my tumblr, then created a nail tumblr account, I reached a few thousand followers, but decided to delete it so I could start a real blog. And here I am today!
I decided to do some nail art to celebrate this occasion, I couldn't think of anything on my own so I started looking on youtube. I found a tutorial of some cute balloon nails and decided to try it out!


I think this look is so fun, and perfect for this occasion, or a birthday!

Here's a link to the tutorial by cutepolish!
I hope you guys have enjoyed my posts from the past year, I know I've had so much fun posting.. I can't believe how far I've come in a year! My pictures have improved a lot, so have my nail art skills. I can't believe this post was from a year ago.. haha.

Thanks for reading everyone, and for all the love and support!

Sorry I have been MIA the past few days..

Hey everyone.
Just a quick post today, I wanted to apologize for not having any new posts for you since Saturday. I'm so sick, I'm all stuffed up and my throat is killing me. I haven't even painted my nails because I've barely moved.
I am working hard to feel better and have more posts for you soon.
Thanks for being patient!

Polka dots all over the place!

Hey everyone!
Today I decided to get out my dotting tool, and have a little fun! Trying to do nail art everyday is becoming a challenge, because I'm still not feeling very inspired. I went with something very simple today!
For this I used: China Glaze - Stone Cold, China Glaze - Electric Beat, China Glaze - Spontaneous, and China Glaze - Wicked Style.




Very simple, like I said.. but I still think it looks cute!
If anyone has any nail art ideas for me, I would appreciate it! I'm failing at thinking of new things lol.

I hope you all have an amazing day, thanks for reading!

Summer Color Block mani!

Hey lovelies!
I've really been trying to improve on my freehand work lately, so I'm not just posting swatches for you all, and I've had a hard time finding inspiration. I was looking through all my polishes and just grabbed 3 bright fun colors, and decided to try something again that I've never done before.
For this I used Color Club - Wham! Pow!, Color Club - Warhol, Color Club - Almost Famous, China Glaze - Liquid Leather, and a black striping brush.




I love the colors together, I think they look wonderful. I just wish my lines were a little better, but I'm probably just being over critical lol. I can't wait to try this using different colors!

I hope you all enjoyed this, and thank you for reading!

Funky triangle tips mani!

Hey everyone!
I recently picked up 2 colors from the Color Club Take Wing Collection, and I decided to use them together to create something fun! This isn't something I've tried before, and it was entirely freehanded.. no tape!


I took so many pictures of these, but most of them came out blurry.. and by the time I realized I had already taken the polish off. :( I loved this design though, it was so simple and fun.. and something I've never tried before!

I also took a few pictures of the polish before I added the design, so you can see how lovely both colors are.


The pink is Wing Fling, and the blue is Sky High. I love both of these polishes, so gorgeous and the blue has a nice duochrome. Sadly, the blue stained.. but that happens with a lot of blue polishes I find. Just use a nice base coat before hand.

Also, I've decided to do a small giveaway when I reach 400 followers.. which I'm so close to (right now I'm only 4 followers away)! So look out for that, and help me reach this so I can give you all a little something!

Thank you for reading everyone, enjoy your day!

Stripes, Polka Dots, and Magic?

Hey lovelies!
Yesterday I received some nail mail, I finally got my bottle of Color Club - Magic Attraction (courtesy of my lovely fiance!).
Obviously I had to use it right away, I decided to add some freehand stripes and polka dots for fun.



I love how simple the design is, and the contrast between the beautiful holo in Magic Attraction and the black.
Here is a swatch of Magic Attraction, so you can see it in all its glory!

I hope you all have a great day, and enjoy this beautiful weather (if your having nice weather like I am).
Thanks for reading!
