Decided to snap a pic of my natural nails, just plain… au naturale….. and before I re-polished them.
I think I like my nails. I’m giving them the chance to grow out a little bit. I did a gel polish manicure this time just so I would leave them alone for a few days (fingers crossed that I’ll make it through an entire week though. lol)
gelish – “Jet Set” w/black nail gems
What a predictable nail art day. Gotta get some creativity going.
Even still, I love these colors. A robust and orangey red and a golden-ish shimmery frost.
OPI – “Tasmanian Devil Made Me Do It” & “ Up Front & Personal”
I feel drawn to the most drab, split pea, baby poo green nail polish colors. LOL
Like I HAVE to use them because #1) No one else seems to want to use them and #2) I have to prove that the color is really not ugly!
I love this color! ha ha It’s like a murky chartreuse with a shimmer in the finish. I pretty much nullified the shimmer with my dots though. oh well .
OPI – “Don’t Talk Bach To Me” w/ acrylic paint dots
It actually feels like it’s the same time of year as Carnaval…. just in a different location. It feels like February in Chicago. You wouldn’t believe we are about 2 weeks from SUMMER! I need the temperature to rise.
This design just put me in the mind of some Brasilian festivities….
China Glaze – “Flip Flop Fantasy” & “Sun Worshipper”
It gradually gets louder. LOL
Gradient in “pinks” covered in cheetah print. I like…..very much.
OPI – “Pinking of You”, “Got A Date To-Knight” & “Don’t Know….Beets Me”
w/ handpainted cheetah print in black acrylic paint
Needed some glitter in my nail life. Some “glitzy-shiny”.
gelish – “Allure” with gold leaf flakes & loose gold glitter
…as coined by Angela. It is the perfect description of my manicure design!
Marbling just looks incredible. It’s artwork on my nails!
gelish - “Sweet Morning Dew” & “Sea Foam”
marbled on a base of “Sheek White”
I thought I was taking a break from no-chip …. but I guess I’m back to it. oh well!
And my hands need a spa manicure… they are looking worn. LOL. I must be working too hard.
