Emerald Shimmer!

Hi!

Today I have a surprising combination for you - at least in my opinion, I didn't expect these two polishes to look so freaking gorgeous together.



And it was even prettier in person!!
I couldn't stop looking at my nails while I wore this. This is a greenish Pure Ice layering polish over a navy Color Club polish. Who thought greenish + navy = gorgeous emerald?

I want to wear this one again. The navy polish (in my opinion) is just way too dark on its own, too near to black. However, I just want to layer everything over it now!

Products Used:

Base Coat - Seche Vite Ridge Filling Base Coat
Color Club - Blue Topia
Pure Ice - Heartbreaker
Top Coat - NYC Grand Central Station

By the way.. I've swatched all the Color Clubs that I have (5 of them) so keep an eye open this week (probably next Sunday) for those.

Thanks for reading!

Easy Peasy Grey with Purple Glitter Manicure

Hi!

For my late night Sunday post this week, I have a pretty and simple manicure with a super colorful glittery polish!


I love grey, it looks good with so many colors and is a nice change from white and black! I could have done more coats of the glitter as well, but I liked the sparkle that just one coat leaves. As you can see, it is a mix of blue, red, purple, and silver sparkles! Super pretty.

Products used:

Base Coat - Sally Hansen Nail Protex Vitamin-Fortified Strengthener
NYC - Sidewalkers (Grey)
NYC - Big City Dazzle (Glitter)
Top Coat - NYC Grand Central Station

Thanks for reading!

Tiffany Blue Sparkle Gradient

Hi!

I was in a glittery mood, and then this happened..



I'm kinda obsessed with both of these polishes, and wanted to attempt a gradient glitter effect instead of just glitter everywhere. I did 3 layers of the glitter, and made it get denser and denser as it got closer to the cuticle. I love this so much! I want to do this sort of thing again but with a super tiny and opaque glitter instead of a chunkier one like this.

Products used:

Base Coat - Sally Hansen Nail Protex Vitamin-Fortified Strengthener
L'Oreal - Not A Cloud In Sight
Pure Ice - Over You
Top Coat - NYC Grand Central Station

Thanks for reading!

P.S. Have fun with iOS7 today, iPhone users! I'm super excited.

Simple Tape "French" Manicure and Planning Ahead

Hi!

I quickly wanted to mention that I want to start a "schedule" to my posts - this is barely a real schedule, but heres what I have in mind:

- I will post at the very minimum one post on Sunday. I have been busier due to my job and Sundays are a good day for me to post and do blog related things.. so this seems like a good fit! These posts will almost always be nail related.
- I will try to do an additional post at some point during the week. I have a sort of regular schedule but sometimes I will have Tuesday off, sometimes it will be Friday, etc. Depending on my life goings on, I will do my best to do an additional post then. Plenty of these will be nail related, but this is when I'm more likely to do a makeup/off topic sort of post.

Thats out the way, now for what you came here for!




This is a simple french manicure using scotch tape to get crisp, defined lines. I always jump at pinks and purples, so I wanted to throw some lesser used colors in! Really easy manicure to do, very cool effect! 

Products used:

Base Coat: Sally Hansen Nail Protex Vitamin-Fortified Strengthener
E.L.F. - Nude
NYC - High Line Green
China Glaze - Shower Together
Top Coat: NYC Grand Central Station

Thanks for reading!
