Inspired by my Swim Suit

I was slightly inspired by the Olympian swimmers on this design. I seen photos of how some have patriotic nails which matches their swimsuits so I wanted to create the same effect :)
My base color on the accent nails is Sinful Colors: Black on Black, and the silver that I used to stamp with as well as my other base color is Sally Hansen Insta Dri: Silver Sweep. To create the gradient effect with stars I used plate BM-14, top coat of Out the Door.

I am totally obsessed with how well this mani turned out! The colors I used where a dream to work with, and the turn out couldn't be more exact! I defiantly think ever girl should have a mani to match her swimsuit when it comes to summer time and being at the beach or pool as much as possible!

Neon Stars!

 I am really excited about this post, I ordered some items from Born Pretty Store and they have arrived! Pictured below is the black stripping tape, dotting tools, and stamping plate CK- 04
The colors I used are as followed: Pink nail is China Glaze: Pool Party with Color Club: Wing Fling. Orange nail is China Glaze: Orange Knockout with Color Club: Sparkle and Soar. Yellow nail is Nina Ultra Pro: Solar Flare with Color Club: Daisy Does It. Green nail is China Glaze: I'm With the Life Guard and Color Club: Fly With Me. Blue nail is Studio M: Total Wow and Color Club: Sky High. To add more sparkle I top coated with Northern Lights.
Now for the design aspect I used the black stripping tape I bought from bornprettystore. I have used taped before with my past designs so when I tried this kind out it wasn't to difficult to use. It stuck to my nails very well so the polish didn't seep under, the only thing I wish this tape came with was a dispenser of some sort to make it easier to cut the pieces.
I taped off the star than using Sinful Colors: Black on Black I went over the entire nail. To remove the tape I found it helpful to use tweezers. Top coat of Out the Door to finish my mani off :) I can't wait to come up with more designs using this stripping tape, I have a feeling I will go thru it in no time!!
Hope you love this one as much as me!

Haleys Comet

Here is another nail polish that I found on my Ulta trip, I saw this one on a blog and was so excited to find it for myself! This is part of Orly's Cosmic Collection. It is so worth paying $10 for, so glittery. In the bottle it looks really blue, and also in my picture but in real life on my nails it turned out more green.
I started with Rue 21: Cotton Candy scented polish, one coat of Orly: Haleys Comet. I decided my star stamp is suitable for this color, so I taped off an angle and stamped with Konad white.
Very simple mani but the color out does it for this one. Could see myself wearing just Haleys Comet on its own in the near future. Do you own one of Orly's Cosmic Collection?
