Snowflake Stamps

Winter Nail Art

While some of the country is buried in snow, the rest of us have barely seen an inch.  We finally got a few flakes here, and I was ready to do a snowy look.

Color Club Holographic Polish

For this look, I used Color Club Blue Heaven, OPI Sheer Tints I Can Teal You Like Me, and Wet ‘n’ Wild Hallucinate.  There wasn’t enough sunshine to be able to tell, but the Color Club is a holo, and the Wet ‘n’ Wild is an iridescent glitter.  (I also used a white stamping polish that doesn’t have any brand.)

I began by painting all of my nails with one coat of Blue Heaven.  Then, I stamped my first layer of snowflakes.  Next, was a layer of the Sheer Tints, followed by more snowflakes, followed by Sheer Tints, then a final layer of snowflakes that were topped off by the glitter polish.

Bundle Monster Stamping Plates

I took turns experimenting with these plates and different stampers, so there are different snowflakes for every layer.  These plates are from Born Pretty, Bundle Monster, and Pueen.

The finished product was a frosty look that perfectly matched the frosty weather.  I hope you like!

Glam Glitter

OPI Nicole Luke of the Draw

Nicole by OPI Luke of the Draw is one of those polishes that I forget about.  It is gorgeous and goes on so easily!  I have pictures both indoors and outdoors, and honestly, I love the indoors.  It is the kind of polish that catches that evening light and looks so glam!  Check out my IG @dontjudgemeokaynails for a video of the shining glory of it all!

I don’t feel like I have a whole lot to say about this polish, except that I really love the sparkle and shine.  I also like when I rediscover a color that I haven’t worn in a while.  🙂

FAIL = First Attempt In Learning

Sparitual Oasis

I see people do beautiful dry marble designs all the time, and they make it look like a piece of cake.  Either they are really just that good, or this is something that takes a little more practice.

I used Wet’n’Wild Whipped Topping as a base for all of my nails.  Next, I put on a blob of Sparitual Oasis, and I used a pointed dotting tool to swirl the polish.  This is where I was experimenting with amounts of blue and white, and how hard to push, where to swirl, how to swirl, I mean really…the combinations of ways to do it are endless and overwhelming!  And then, if the polish begins to stiffen up at all, forget it!  You will just leave bald spots.  And oh the bald spots!  Some people make those look so easy to cover up.  When I tried to, it truly looked like a blob of paint tossed on to a weird looking nail.  😛  Anyway, when that was all done, I topped it off with a coat of Wet’n’Wild Up in the Air, because sometimes glitter makes designs better.  Yeah, not today.  lol

There are chips and dents and bald spots.  Whatevs.

It’s a Trap-eze!

China Glaze It's a Trap-eze!

I fell in love with this polish when it came out, so when I finally scored it on the clearance rack I was stoked!  I have pics from in the sun and in the shade in an effort to show off the glory of it all.

China Glaze It’s a Trap-eze! is a white polish with metallic glitters mixed into it.  It does remind of me Jawbreaker by Funky Fingers, but I feel like the formula is better.

Metallic Glitter

Check out the shine from the glitters on my hand!  When this polish catches the light, the metallic pieces really do shine.

Textured Nail Polish

Because of the glitter pieces, this polish does have a bit of a texture to it.  Also, in spite of the glitter, it goes on pretty easily.  I think this is such a fun, versatile polish.  I am super excited to have it in my collection!

Zoya Pixie Dust

Zoya Pixie Dust

I wanted a quick look for a couple of family get togethers, and this polish came through!  One, it is sparkly, yet subtle.  Two, any nicks from preparing food and washing dishes were easily remedied because this polish is so textured.

Sally Hansen Golden-I

I began with one coat of Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Golden-I, because the Zoya is so sheer.  After that, I topped it off with a coat of Zoya Pixie Dust Bar.  It is a neutral, golden, holographic polish that dries sort of matte and textured.  The outdoor pics don’t show much of the shine because it has been cloudy here.

Sheer Tint Toes

OPI Sheer Tints Nail Art

I wanted to do something colorful as the days get cooler and the opportunities to show off any polish on your toes are becoming fewer and fewer.

Funky Fingers Mean Girls

For the base of all of the nails I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep.  I really like this silver because it goes on smoothly and is opaque in one coat.  After that, I topped off each nail with one of the OPI Sheer Tints.  Starting with the pink they are, Be Magentale With MeI Can Teal You Like MeDon’t Violet Me Down, and I’m Never Amberrassed.  And in case that wasn’t enough, I topped every toe off with Funky Fingers So Fetch!.  The Funky Fingers has pink, yellow, green, white, and black hex glitters, along with blue stars.  When I found this polish, it was hard not to grab the others because I really do like the movie Mean Girls.

Sally Hansen Insta Dri Silver Sweep

The finished product was colorful, but nothing over the top.  I actually thought it was a nice way to get color for the fall without being full on neon.

Do you like the sheer tints?  Or have the color paints taken over?

Pink Ribbons

Breast Cancer Awareness Nail Art

October is Breast Cancer Awareness Month, and I know more people than I would like to admit that have been touched by this disease.  While I know that pink ribbons on my nails will not bring a cure, awareness brings money, money brings research, and research should bring a cure.

OPI Pink of Hearts 2014

For this mani, I used OPI Mod About You, which is from the 2014 Pink of Hearts set.  (Side note: Has anyone found these for 2015?  I can’t, even online.  Is OPI not doing this anymore?)  After painting on the OPI, which dried in a flash, I placed the water slide ribbons on my ring fingers.  I topped all of that off with two coats of Funky Fingers Ghouls Night Out, which darkened the OPI to a nice shade of Pepto Pink.  It also added the glittery shine.

BUT WAIT!  That’s not all!  This mani is not only fabulous for the day, but rocks at night because it is…

Glow in the Dark Nail Polish

That’s right!  This sparkly pink is also a glow polish.  I am going to put a few pics below, which don’t really capture the brightness, but trust me when I say it shines brightly!

Waterslide Decals

I absolutely love glow polish, and the way this look worked both day and night made it a lot of fun.  Then, to top it off, it got people’s attention for a cause.  I call that a win, win, win!

Thanks for reading!  And let me know if you find Pink of Hearts for 2015!
