BPS: Plaid Water Decal, French Mani

~Press Sample~

Its a beautiful sunny morning here in Michigan, we are getting closer to summer weather :D I have some plaid water decals from The Born Pretty Store to review for you today. 

 

I choose these decals since I loved how they are glittery and knew they would make a great fancy french mani.

I love how easy water decals are to apply and they give you such gorgeous nail art. My nails are now at the length where french manicures look perfect, and I am sort of obsessing over it ;)

These decals are perfect for a easy fancy french manicure, you can find them here. The Born Pretty Store really has so much to offer in nail art items, they also offer free International shipping. Make sure to use my coupon code below for 10% off!!

Three Neon Stained Glass

~nothing to disclose~

It's almost the weekend!! Even tho our sunny warm days were sparse this week I wanted to wear some neon :D I did this free handed stained glass neon mani to brighten up my week.

As always neons don't show up the best in photos, this are much more bright in person. I also loved this look and already can think of another mani to incorporate this stained glass appearance.

Freehand Herringbone

~nothing to disclose~

It's finally Friday! Have you ever noticed how bad I always want the weekend? lol It's only going to  get worse when it's summer time too. Now for my mani today, I attempted free handing herringbone pattern. I had help doing this from two pins, you can view here and here. I had to use both together since I felt like one missed a step and the other was more clear. Nonetheless it turned out, check it out below!

After getting the hang of free handing the herringbone it actually is simple. I thought these two colors look so cool together, they are actually both striping polishes. 
Have a wonderful weekend!

Candy Shimmer

Hello Lovelies, my mani today is rather simple. I am still trying to use all my new Mundo stamping polishes and that calls for skittlettes. I choose a candy stamp for today since I LOVE candy :D


OPI: Ski Teal We Drop
Orly: Halley's Comet
Mundo 24
Cheeky Jumbo Plate 7



Once again no problems stamping with Mundo polish and check out all that pigment. I forgot how beautiful Haley's Comet is from Orly, one downfall from having so many polishes.

Striper Designs

Good Morning, my mani today is nothing great just a couple more stripier brush designs I randomly drew on my nails.


Orly: Crisp White
Color Club: Angel Kiss


I wouldn't say I love either of these design to much, but nonetheless thought I would share them with you. Sometimes it's hard to find inspiration and this is what I end up with on those days.

Plum Spakle Accents

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

 Despite freezing temps today I am back to work :( I guess I can't complain to much since I got a snow day yesterday. I felt uninspired for today's nails, all I knew is that I wanted to use was a nail foil, so I decided to do a quick stamp over it for a couple accent nails.


 Orly: Plum Noir
Nail Foil
Cheeky Plate 3



Easy sparkly design with my favorite dark plum. 
Hope everyone is staying warm!

Present Tips

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png
Good Morning! Sticking with the holiday themed nails from yesterday I have a present tip mani to show you today.

 
Zoya: Livingston and Hunter
Orly: Crisp White



I am indifferent with this mani, it didn't turn out exactly like I had in mind but it also isn't terrible. I think if I would of done a different color than white for the bows I would like it better.

Geometric Accent Nails

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png
Good morning and happy Monday readers. I had such a lovely weekend I really didn't want it to end this morning, then I remembered I only have a three day work week! Hopefully you all have some time off to celebrate thanksgiving with your loved ones this week. My nails today are sort of futuristic/geometric? You tell me lol.

 
Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep
China Glaze: Liquid Leather
Orly Instant Artist: Jet Black and True Blue



I really love these colors together and the fun accent pattern. This pattern randomly came to me when I was playing around with my stripping brush. Would you say it's futuristic?
