31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 12-Stripes

9 Dec

My stripes didn’t come out as I had planned, to say the least.  By now, most of you have learned that I am horrible at nail art, and today is no exception.  I used love & beauty’s (or Forever 21) mauve and light grey ($2.80) each.  These polishes were over very nice, and only needed one coat!  A little bit of leftover purple got on my nail art brush, so the stripes on my left thumb have a little extra “pizzazz” .

Any tips on how I can improve my nail art skills?

31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 11-Polka Dots

24 Nov

Today I did my Polka Dot nails, with Essie’s Ballet slippers and a random Sally’s beauty mini polish.  The dots turned out okay, considering it was only my second time doing this pattern.

31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 10-Gradient Nails

17 Nov

Today I finally  did my gradient nails!  I used Zoya in Megan, China Glaze in Spontaneous, and Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear in Gray Area.  I will put the link to the tutorial I used at the bottom of the post.  Obviously, my version didn’t come out as well.  I guess it is an okay first try, but it is a bit too stripy.  I also got the colors mixed up on my right hand.  The sponge I used was pretty big so I got a lot of polish around my cuticles, and I just did this mani so it hasn’t pealed off yet.

31 Day Nail Challenge-Day 8-Metallic

7 Oct

For today’s mani I used Sally Hansen’s Hard as Nails Xtreme wear in Pink Satin.  I am in love with this color, and it was only $3.29 at CVS!  This is a really pretty pinky-purpley super shiny polish.  I really only needed one coat with this polish.  The only problem with this was the little bubbles that showed up when the polish was drying.

31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 7 – Black and White Nails

29 Sep

I am SOOOOOO excited to show you all my nails for today!  This is pretty much the first real nail art I have done (and this isn’t really real nail art, lol).   The polishes I used were both from dELiA’s.  Sorry my nails are super short!  I put the tutorial I used to get this look down below the pic.

 

The tutorial I got this idea from:  (andreaschoice, another awesome YouTube channel)

The only thing I did differently was paint the tips less, and use black crackle polish.

BLOG NEGLECT!!! + 31 Day Nail Challenge – Day 6 Violet x2

23 Aug

I don’t even want to know when the last time I posted was.  It has been far too long:-(  I promise to get on a more regular blogging schedule as I go back to school.  To make it up to you all, I have a double swatch today!  I also promise to have some non polish related posts… lol

My first purple (or violet) swatch is China Glaze Spontaneous.  This is a really pretty plain purple without any shimmer or glitter.  I first used this polish a couple of weeks back, and it stayed on for about a week with some minor chips.  I really like this polish’s formula, it only took two coats to get a great color.  I get China Glazes at 2 for $10 (I think) at my local Sally’s beauty.

(Sorry for the pic quality, this is the most accurate colorwise)

My second Swatch for you is Sally Hansen Xtreme wear in Deep Purple.  The color is actually a lot more purple in person, and not as blue as in this picture.  This color is very shimmery, and if you look very closley you can see red and blue shimmer specks.  This a beautiful color I would recomend to everyone.  I will keep you all updated on how long this lasts!

I also wanted to share a cool new kind of remover bottle that I found at CVS.  Most of you have probably already seen this, but this bottle despenses the polish when you push a cotton swab on the top of it.  This is very handy, and helps you get just the right amount of polish.

31 Day Nail Challenge- Day 5 Blue Nails

3 Aug

For my blue nails I used L.A. COLORS color craze polish, which didn’t have a name.  This is a really pretty metallic blue which looks teal in different lights.  I am now officially in love with this color:-)
