PNMC: Ikat

The prompt this week is ikat. I'm not really a fan of the ikat manicure, but I found some interesting ikat designs online and used that for inspiration. The base is Zoya Jacqueline and the blues are Xtreme Wear Babe Blue and Essie Hide And Go Chic.

Zoya Metallics

Hello! I recently got some new Zoya polishes and I wanted to try them out, so I kind of just threw this manicure together. I used Zoya Dillon, Hudson, and Rory. These polishes are so reflective that it was really difficult to really get any pictures of this design.

Taped Waves

 Hello! For this manicure I used some crafting scissors to cut tape into wavy shapes. Using this tape helped me to get really nice clean lines for my waves. The base is China Glaze All Aboard and History of the World, although it's are to tell because they are kind of blending together a lot, and the gold is Zoya Severine.

Squares Everywhere

 The manicure that I have today is inspired by this tutorial. The base is China Glaze Dashboard Dreamer and the squares are Xtreme Wear Big Teal. I think it turned out a lot better than I was expecting!

PNMC: Houndstooth

 Hello! The theme this week is houndstooth. To make my houndstooth I used striping tape to make a bunch of evenly sized squares, then I freehanded the rest of the details. I was going to paint it on every nail, but I didn't really have the time, so I put a glitter, Maybelline Precious Pearls, on the rest of the nails. The base is Xtreme Wear All Bright, and the green is Xtreme Wear Kiwi Bikini.

Glitter on the Side

 Here's a simple manicure that I put together using Zoya Cole, China Glaze Grass Is Lime Greener, and Nails Inc Portobello Gardens. The Nails Inc glitter is amazing! Plus, it was originally $11, but I found it in the clearance section for only $2.77, what a steal!

 The prompt this week is geometric! I made a bunch of triangles with the help of striping tape. The base is Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, and the triangles are Xtreme Wear Big Teal and Xtreme Wear Babe Blue.
