Blue Skies

Happy New Year Everyone!

I hope everyone had a great new years! To start off this month I’m going to do the @californails #NailArtJan a challenge they are hosting on Instagram. Below is the challenge.

NailArtJan Yesterdays theme was fresh which I posted on Instagram. (Blog post is only a day late). When I saw fresh I thought of the open sky. So here is what I came up with.

Fresh(28)

I used a Color Club blue polish (don’t know the name unfortunately), then I sponged on Sinful Colors Snow me White to resemble clouds. I used MoYou London Mother Nature plate 1 and Hipster 3 for the bird images and I stamped them using Sinful Colors Black on Black.

I absolutely LOVE how this turned out! I’m glad what I envisioned in my head turned out exactly how I wanted it to! I am in love with my nails and for the first time in a while I don’t want to take my polish off!

I will not be posting all of the challenge on my blog, I will try to do most but if you’d like to see it all please don’t hesitate to follow me on Instagram! You can find me here @simplystylishnails

Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend.

New Years Eve

Good Evening Everyone!

This is my last blog post of 2014! I just wanted to take a second to say Thank You. Thank you for your support and love, it means a lot to me that people take interest in what I am interested in. Painting my nails and this blog have done a lot for me. It has let me express myself in a way that makes me feel good and proud. So thank you to everyone for being here with me on this journey and I hope the best for everyone in the new year!

Alright let’s get to some nails! Theses are my New Years Eve nails. I was stuck on this theme for days. All the ideas I had turned to crap so this is what I came up with.

NewYears(1)

I was feeling like a neon pink kind of day so BAM! Hot pink! It is China Glaze ‘Thistle do Nicely’. I used elmers glue and loose glitter (blue, silver and gold) and a tooth pick to create the fireworks, dots and 2015.

Minty Chevrons

Good Evening Everyone!

I hope everyone is having a good Monday! My Monday has been pretty productive. I’ve cleaned the whole house and started putting some Christmas decorations away. Today I have a polish from my Christmas haul. My Boyfriend bought me 2 packs of Color Club polish. (That’s 14 polishes!! :D). Today I used Color Club ‘Bundle of Joy’ as the base and Sinful Colors ‘Black on Black’.

MintyChevrons (17)I used Nail Vinyls – you can find them here – for the chevrons. I used 2 different sizes to create this look.

MintyChevrons (19)I LOVE this close up! I wish I took a picture of the base color before I put the black on. It was a minty green with flecks of white and black. So very pretty.

MintyChevrons (27)I hope everyone enjoyed my nails today! Thank you everyone for stopping by! Enjoy the next few days!
