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!

Orly Instant Artist: Platinum Silver and Grape
Sally Hansen: Silver Sweep

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!

Good Morning! Hope you all had a great weekend, mine was semi busy with family Christmas parties.

Rainbow Herringbone

Wahoo its Friday! Did everyone else work week go as slow as mine? As usual I am ready for two days off and the weather even looks to be pretty nice, but living in Michigan who knows! Yesterday I changed my nail shape into more oval and I am actually enjoying this shape, I find that it may be easier to manage as well :D For my mani I wanted to do another Herringbone but with rainbow colors and I love how it turned out!


butter LONDON: Pillar Box Red
NYC: Orange Traffic Jam
Color Club: Almost Famous
Zoya: Shawn and Mira
Loreal: Jet Set to Paris
Sinful Colors: White on White


I did a saran mani underneath the herringbone and was tempted to leave it just like that. Do you like my oval nail shape? What nail shape do you prefer? Have a great weekend!

Freehand Herringbone Nails, Quick Post

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Hello my lovelies! I have been gone way to long :( As I have been updating on Facebook I am still not happy with my nail length after it broke on the 4th of July weekend.  This past weekend I went camping with my family and we had some cold weather so I gave in and painted my nails. I wanted to quickly share my design and you can also see how short my nail still is... I also took this picture with my phone so the quality is not the best. 



I didn't write down the colors, so sorry about that. This design was inspired by this mani done by Lucy Stash. Isn't sad how short my ring nail is! I have been trying everything and it's been almost three weeks now! Below I have a bonus pic of the mani I did for my brothers fiance.


I did this mani to match her swimsuit, which is shown. I really loved the combination of neon green with white and black. Also check out her gorgeous engagement ring! :D 

I plan on doing the Herringbone pattern again when my nails are all the same length and I can also get a better picture. I have missed painting my nails so much I have decided to get back into blogging even tho they aren't the best nails. I have a lot of polish to be swatched for you also, that I am waiting for my nail to grow back for. Till than I may have a couple posts a week!

Neon Freehand Chevron

 photo me_zps76cb00ed.png

Today I am breaking back into neons, in fact tomorrow I'll have another neon mani! My design today was inspired by this mani. I really loved the edgyness of the freehand chevron and it looked simple to do so I just had to try it.


piCture pOlish: Violet Femme
Studio M: Neon Green
Sinful Colors: White on White


My chevron isn't the best, I really need to find a better detailing brush. I absolutely love the color combination of neon green and purple, I know I will be using these colors a lot this summer. This design was super simple to achieve and just imagine all the color combination possibilities!

Freehand Purple Cheetah


 I am totally in love with this mani, I found a new blog last night that I have been going thru all her post. She is amazing check out Rebecca at Rebeccalikesnails. I love how she free hands cheetah so that you can use different colors without having to have them be stamp able colors. I did mine with dotting tools, I need to get a brush set soon so I can master this look.
To start my base color is Sally Hansen: Lacey Lilac, the inside of the cheetah is China Glaze: Harmony, while I used China Glaze: VIII for the lines. Its a dark purple little hard to tell. My studs came for the Dollar Nail Art Store. This was a great way to incorporate them.
I hope you all love this mani as much as me. I am really getting the hang of nail art. Let me know if you have any suggestions for me.
