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.
I was feeling kinda low-key for my manicure.
This is perfect for those who work in extremely conservative environments or whose personality is just more classic and lower key. I’ve heard the term “grown-up nail art” thrown around a bit lately…. I think this design and color coordinate fits the bill.
gelish – “Medieval Madness” & “Sheek White”
I really like these…. so much so that I can’t bring myself to remove the polish on the one nail. I’ve changed the other polish 3 times…. and since the striped nail hasn’t chipped or anything…. I haven’t taken it off. I like stripes…. my dots are getting jealous. LOL
OPI – “Atomic Orange”
I was testing out thicker lines when I did my right hand accent nail…. not so great.
This polish is dreamy. Creamy consistency, wonderful opacity and color saturation AND 3-Free.
What a perfect color. I’m such a coral/melon/peach type of girl. So, this is already a favorite.
butter LONDON – “Trout Pout”
For some reason, I just felt this color would be great to try as a ruffian inspired manicure…. which, before, I wasn’t the biggest fan of….. now…. I am. I just love it.
China Glaze – “Sky High-Top”
Well, my “regular” polish phase ended abruptly when I purchased new gelish no-chip colors this week. It’s sad that I have polish ADD. I really don’t know how people WANT to keep the same polish for two whole weeks. LOL.
So I did my no-chip manicure… let’s see how long I can keep it. This will definitely be a challenge. I give myself until Sunday before I absolutely have to remove this and change the polish.
gelish – “You’re Such A Sweet-Tart” w/ “Twinkle” (on the nail tips)
