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

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.
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.
To get a better look at the polish, head on over to my Instagram. There is a video posted. 🙂 @dontjudgemeokaynails

This was the last week of school and I wanted something bright, borderline tacky, and easy to apply.
Pink Lemonade, Blue Me Away, Lemonade, Techno
To make this look, I began with painting all of my nails with Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Blue Me Away. This is a bright, basically neon, blue. One coat would probably do it, but I did two since I knew I would be moving furniture and stuff during the week. Next, I painted my middle fingers with Funky Fingers Lemonade. This is a yellow matte glitter coat, and it is scented. It is supposed to smell like lemonade, but I honestly just thought it stunk. On my index finger and pinky I painted Funky Fingers Pink Lemonade, which is also a matter glitter coat and scented. While it is mildly better than the yellow, it isn’t something I would whiff on purpose. Finally, I used China Glaze Techno on my thumb and ring finger. This is a holographic silver hex glitter with small glitter mixed in. While the yellow, pink, and blue are all neon and play off of each other, the holo added a touch of shiny bling.
The end result was a mani that I was a little like WHOA toward, but actually got a lot of positive feedback from. It makes me want to experiment with other color combos for summer.

Tomorrow is Easter, so I did my nails in some fun spring colors. Please excuse and remaining sloppy edges, since I wanted to get some pics in the daylight. 🙂
I did each nail in a different spring shade. From left to right I used: Sally Girl Simple, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Mellow Yellow, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Breezy Blue, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, and Fresh Paint Honeydew. Since all of these are light colors, I needed about three coats of each to feel good about them.
I topped off all of the nails with a coat of Maybelline Color Show Polka Dots Clearly Spotted. This polish is made of of different sizes of black and white dots, and I wish I had another bottle, because I can’t find it anywhere now.
I thought these colors looked really fun together, and they will make a cute look for Easter. The remind of me the Robin Egg candies.
This was easy, quick, colorful, and perfect for a sunny day! And, it will match whatever I pull out of my closet. 🙂
Have a very blessed Easter! Thanks for reading!
