#52weeknailchallenge: yellow and green

Another late post... Hopefully I'll catch up soon.

Let me show what I did for this prompt. I started with three coats of Morgan Taylor go for the glow on my thumb and index. On my middle and index I have a coat of China Glaze daisy know my name. On my pinky I have three.
I then did a gradient with go for the glow and daisy know my name on my middle and ring finger.
Once it was dry I added a coat of Sinful Colors holo back over the gradient. Then I added some decals.
What do you think? I love how this turned out! Especially the neon.

Thanks for stopping by.

#52weeknailchallenge: half moon

I'm so behind with posting these blog posts, it's not even funny. And I don't want to update Instagram, because my blog posts are behind... Anyway, I took this prompt literally and had half moons on my nails. Let me show you what I did...

I started with two coats of Morgan Taylor under the stars on my thumb, index and pinky. On my middle and ring finger I have two coats of Morgan Taylor go for the glow.
I had such doubt about go for the glow, but it's sooo pretty!! It's definitely one I will be wearing again. The half moons are decals I got from Aliexpress. If you don't have any I can really recommend getting a pack from Aliexpress, as long as you don't mind the wait. I have so many! I have even given some away.
I added a matte topcoat to the nails with under the stars and I loved it even more.
What do you think? And which version do you prefer?

Thanks for reading!

Friday Triad: Inspired by @thenailartbabe

It's that time of the month again... Each month one of us chooses a mani as inspiration and we go to town with it. This month it was my turn to choose the inspo. So I chose this mani by @thenailartbabe, I originally had something else in mind, but it was similar to another design we did recently.

Let me show you what I did. I started with a coat of Hean City Fashion white, not bothering about opacity. I then did a gradient with China Glaze for Audrey at my cuticle, Hean I love Hean 401 and China Glaze emerald bae.
I then top coated as I was going to use vinyls.
I then placed the vinyls on my nails and painted a coat of Pahlish Salazar on my tips, removing the vinyls immediately. Sadly the store I got these vinyls from is no longer available. So I'm using them rather sparingly.
I am super happy with how this turned out. I got a butt load of compliments and that's always fun. What do you think? Don't forget to check out what Joyce and Michelle did... I'm suspecting someone used pink or purple.

Thanks for reading!!

Halloween 2019

I almost dated this post 2020, I've been making enquiries into service providers for the wedding and all of them wanted the date, so typing 2020 is so natural right now.

I wanted to do another Halloween mani for this year, since another image on Lina MYM 8 caught my eye while doing the previous one. I started with two coats of China Glaze plur-ple on my thumb, one coat of China Glaze treble maker on my index, middle and ring finger and two coats on my pinky.
I then did a smoosh on my index, middle and ring finger with the two polishes.
Once it was dry I stamped both images from Lina MYM8 with Nicole Diary black. For once the pictures are way brighter than it is in real life. I loved how this turned out. And I'm especially happy with how neon the pictures turned out.
What do you think? Maybe next year I'll actually use the Halloween stamping plate I have!
