Essence Floral and Stripes

~Press Sample~

Hello my long last nail polish lovers. I guess I have been gone for awhile now... and should give an explanation. I had a nail break (pointer finger) and also just lost inspiration for doing my nails. Life events happen which left me in a slump. I am hoping to get back into nails full force soon, till then I will have a few posts thru out the weeks. Today I have some nail art done with Essence polishes that I received for review. I really was inspired by the colors to do this floral stripe design.

Nail Painting Weekend with the Boyfriend

Hello lovelies! Since I didn't get a post edited for today (crazy morning) I thought I would post about my recently uploaded Youtube Video. Wait, did you know that I have a youtube channel now?!?! If not, check it out here.

To explain the video lets start from the top! My boyfriend has a youtube channel, where he does vlogs and skits. He is going to school for broadcasting and video production which is why he enjoys youtube. I thought about doing this collaboration when him and his sister were joking about him doing his nails, since she recently joined in on the fun of nail art.

Last weekend we made a two part video for both of our channels. His channel shows me teaching him each nail art style on HIS nails and mine shows HIM painting the same mani on my nails!! I can't even tell you how much fun it was to do this, you will have many laughs at his attempt and maybe learn some simple nail art styles from me teaching him :D

First watch his video learning how to do the nail art.

Now watch his attempt!

I had so much fun doing this, it still makes me laugh when I re watch them. I was proud of my boyfriend and I think he has lots of potential ;) Although these nails didn't last more than 10min on each of us it was totally worth it. 
Have you ever had a guy try to paint your nails?

Random Stripper Brush Nail Art

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Well blogger finally worked, it only took me 30min to download two pictures!! Anyways, I have a random nail art post. I recently got a set of three kiss stripper polishes and wanted to think of a design to use them both, I come up with some random line design.

Lime Crime: Milky Way
Kiss Nail Artist: Dali Kit

Besides my pinky nail with the chunky lines these stripers were pretty easy to use. I really am not one for the tribal nails and this reminds me of them. It was a fun and easy design for sure but they didn't last long on me.

Purple Stripes

So I added some design to my butter LONDON nails from yesterday. The hard part was finding colors that went well with the Knackered since it is chrome. The funny thing is that the Zoya I bought on my shopping trip to Ulta ended up matching great with it, even though at the time I wasn't even trying to match them, funny how things work out :D
I hand drew the stripes with the Zoya: Kendal and used my Art Club Nail Art Duo Stripper for the White.
Simple Design just something to add to my butter LONDON from yesterday since I wanted to wear it more than one day having to have applied the 5 coats. It also makes the purple chrome show more than just silver, even though my picture doesn't show it.
You can always spruce up an old mani by throwing on some stripes!
