Good Morning & Happy #ManiMonday
I hope everyone had a great weekend. I celebrated my BF’s grandfathers 91st birthday yesterday! It was a wonderful time, I made homemade apple pie and turned the crust into a big 91. We also did a lot of shopping for vacation. I can’t believe on Saturday I will be one a beach!
Today’s nails were inspired by some gold and black pineapples that were on some glasses we bought. I attempted to do the pineapples but couldn’t get them small enough so kept with the colors and did a dotticure.
What I Used:
Dots: Color Show Twilight Rays, Finger Paints Beverly’s Touch, Color Club Soft Chiffon and a glittery gold Cosmetics Arts polish.
For these dots I used a thin brush. I would normally use a dotting tool but I took my nail polish upstairs to paint my nails in front of the TV and was too lazy to go back downstairs for a doting tool. These turned out just a good!
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I’m planning on having 2 sets of fake nails to take on vacation. I find my real nails break super easy. I hope to share them with you on Thursday. Have a great week!
Last night my sister and I had most of our soccer team together for our second game. We won 4-0! I did a lot of work in net but it was nothing compared to how the ladies played on the field. They did an amazing job. We also won our baseball game on Tuesday. This week is a good week!
Today’s nails are bursting for joy with all our of wins this week! Just kidding, I used the burst nail vinyls.
What I Used:
Base: Essie I’m Addicted
Bursts: Burst nail vinyls from @Teismom. Finger Paints Beverly’s Touch and a super sparkly gold from Cosmetic Arts.
I did the base blue and once dry I used the nail vinyls to make the bursts. I put the Finger Paints polish on first then dabbed on the gold glitter polish.
Thank you everyone for stopping by! I hope everyone has a great weekend. We have my BFs grandpa coming down for the weekend so I’m planning on making a bunch of apple pies! It will be lots of fun. Thanks again.
Good Morning Nail World.
I hope everyone is having a great week so far! It felt like a Thursday all week so I’m finally glad it’s actually Thursday! I tried to a new technique on the blog today. I attempted marble veins.
What I Used:
Base: Zoya Aspen
Veins: Cosmetic Arts light Grey polish & Wet’N’Wild Black Creme
After my base dried I squiggled on the grey polish using the thinnest brush I have. I used a slightly larger brush to put acetone on the grey veins to dilute them. I did the same for the black lines but I didn’t dilute it quite as much.
My inspiration is the piece of marble we have in our shower. (We have a built-in recessed shelf in our shower for our shampoo bottles. The edges are all marble). My veins are quite strong compared to my inspiration, but I still love the outcome.
Thank you everyone for stopping by. I hope everyone has a great weekend.
