Purple Bridesmaid

Bridal Party Nail Art

I recently was in a wedding that was using purple as the color, and did I match that ish or what?  LOL

OPI Color Paints Purple Perspective

I began by painting all of my nails with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Celeb City.  This is hands down, my favorite silver polish.  I actually like it underneath the Color Paints much better than the polish that OPI released with them.  After the silver base dried, I painted all of my nails with one coat of OPI Color Paints Purple Perspective.

Bundle Monster Plate H16

After that dried, I used a Bundle Monster plate, Konad stamper and scraper, and white stamping polish from the Born Pretty Store.  I chose the rose type of image and stamped all of the nails with white.

Originally, I was going to leave my nails purple and white to match the bouquet, but I thought it was too much, and that’s where the OPI Sheer Tints Don’t Violet Me Down (pictured above) came into play.  One coat of that over all of the nails toned down the white perfectly.  And, as a subtle accent, I used a heart rhinestone on each of my ring fingers.

Rhinestone Nail Accent

I was honestly very happy with how these turned out.  They matched, and were actually pretty easy to do.  It makes me want to match other Color Paints with Sheer Tints.  🙂

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.

Favorite Nails of the Season!

Autumn Nail Stamping

These fall nails may be my favorite fall nails I have ever done.  They aren’t super flashy or complicated, but I really enjoyed wearing them!  Be ready for lots of pics.  (Also, I am trying to get used to the new WordPress layout, so there’s that.)

Bundle Monster

I used a Bundle Monster plate with a Konad stamper and scraper.

Cancer Moon

But, before we get into all of that, let me tell you that I painted all of my nails with Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Cancer Moon as a base.  This is a neutral with a golden shine that seemed perfect for this look!

Nail Polish for Stamping

For the stamping, I used these polishes.  From left to right they are: OPI I Sing in Color, Sally Hansen Lustre Shine, Zoya Channing, Julep Valerie, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Jungle Gem, Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure Branch Out, Sally Hansen Patent Gloss Moto, Sally Hansen Insta Dri Vanished, and China Glaze Don’t Make Me Wine.  All of these worked together beautifully to make the multicolored leaved.  I am posting a few extra pics so you can try to get a fee for the polishes.  A lot of them are duo/multichromes, have shines, etc.

Okay, for the stamping.  In the following pics, I was experimenting with a yellow that didn’t make the cut, but you can ignore that.  🙂

Multicolored Nail Stamping

First, I blob a bit of each color on the plate.

Konad Stamping

Then, I scrape.  The colors do not blur together the way you would think they would.

Here is a stamp on paper to preview the colors.

After I stamped all of my nails I put on a quick topcoat.  (You can see a few smudges from where I should have waited a moment longer.)

Now for the tons of pics!

Subtle Stamps

Nail Stamping

I wanted a nice, deep color for autumn, and then thought that some designs stamped on top would make it perfect.  It was a very subtle look, and hard to get pics of, but I really enjoyed wearing it.

Konad Stamping

I used Sally Hansen Insta Dri Vanished as the base for all of my nails.  I used a black stamping polish from Born Pretty Store, a Konad stamper and scraper, and a plate that I purchased as a random single, so I am not sure of the brand.

I really couldn’t capture the perfection for fall in this color in these photos.  It has a slight golden shimmer along with the deep red.  It is gorgeous!

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?

Cinderella

Cinderella Nail Art

I am a sucker for Disney, and after my eBay five buck splurge a while back, I have been dying to use some of my princess water decals.  I got the chance this weeks with some Cinderella nails.

Sally Hansen Miracle Gel

For my blue nails, I used Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Blue Hue, which I feel looks very Cinderella.  I really like the Miracle Gel polishes, but I will say this blue was thicker than any others I have used.  It ended up looking okay, I just felt like it was gooey.  (Can you use nail polish thinner on these types of polishes?)  Then, for the nails with Cinderella water slide decals, I used Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Birthday Suit.  It really is a very nice, neutral color.  While we are talking polish, I will tell you that the thing that made me secretly happy the entire time I have been wearing this look is the Sally Hansen Diamond Strength glitter I used to top them off.  Why?  Because it is called Glass Slipper.  Could that be more perfect?  Aside from the name, it really does add a nice, delicate hint of shine.

Disney Nail Art

I used a water slide of a Cinderella headshot for my ring fingers and one of her in her ball gown for my thumb,

Sally Hansen Glass Slipper

I really think this look successfully captures Cinderella, it is delicate, pretty, and the gel made it stay on through all of my chores.    🙂

Black and White and Matte All Over

Black and White Nail Art

After multiple nail fails, I wanted something that I felt was pretty safe.  Black and white makes up half of my work wardrobe, crackle covers a multitude of mistakes, and no extra embellishments seemed to pave the way to the right idea.

Crackle and Matte Polish

I used five polishes total.  A black, a white, and then a black and white crackle, and the matte top coat.

Sally Hansen Black Crackle Polish

I painted all of my nails, except for my ring finger, with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Black Out.  Two coats did it.  If you are looking for a nice black polish, I have never had any trouble out of this one.  I used the Sally Hansen Big Crackle Top Coat Black On for the ring finger as a subtle accent.

Sally Hansen White Crackle

The Sally Hansen Crackle Overcoat Snow Blast was the topper for all of the fingers that I had painted black.  The Wet n Wild Megalast Whipped Topping was the base polish on my ring fingers.  This is my new favorite white polish.  Two coats to be opaque, not streaky…just right.

Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat

Once all of that was dry I topped it with Sally Hansen Big Matte Top Coat, which I think is a lovely matte topper.  I wore this for days without any chips, and I am not easy on my nails.

Shatter Nail Polish

The accent nail is admittedly subtle to say the least, but I was just happy to not have another set of nails to file away in the fail folder.  Maybe the bad streak is over!

I hope everyone had a great weekend.  Thanks for reading!
