Centered Triangle Gems

Hello! Today I have another manicure utilizing gems! This time I did a row of triangle gems going down the center of my nails. I definitely had some difficulty lining them up straight. The polish I used is Zoya Rory. I wasn't huge on this mani at first, but just when it was finally starting to grow on me all the gems began to pop off! After one day at least half the gems had come off. What a pain.

Star Gems On Fan Brushed Stripes

Hello! Today I have some nail art that I did a few weeks ago, but am still in love with. For my nails I did the fan brush technique using Essie Hide And Go Chic, Go Overboard, and Xtreme Wear Wet Cement. I applied the stars using topcoat as my adhesive. I was originally going to do some splatter nails with these polishes, but I'm so happy I went with the fan brush technique instead.

Fourth of July Flag Nails

 Happy 4th of July, I hope everyone is having a great day! For my nails this year I ended up going pretty plain and simple, just a flag across my nails. It took a lot more work than I was expecting because I freehand painted everything and I had some trouble trying to make things as neat as I could.

Dots On Stripes

Hello! I feel like I haven't posted anything in a while, so here's a manicure I wore a few weeks ago. I used striping tape to mark off the stripes. I then added dots using the smallest dotting tool that I have. This wasn't exactly my original plan for this look, but I guess it still worked out. I used Orly Lemonade and Essie Hide And Go Chic.

Wavy Lines

Hi! Here's a manicure that I threw together not too long ago. I originally intended on adding a bit more to the design, but I liked how the nails looked just like this. I used China Glaze What A Pansy and Grass Lime Greener. I think the colors look a bit witchy... they're pretty bright and fun though!

Matte Tribal Design

Hello! Here is a matte tribal print that I painted using acrylic paint! I originally had this glossy, but it just didn't look at nice as it does matte. The polish that I used for the base is Xtreme Wear Peach Beach. The matte topcoat is Essie Matte About You.

Gem Bordered Nails

I've been becoming more and more obsessed with gems lately, and I really wanted to play around with some of the more colorful ones that I own. I was so in love with my last gem bordered manicure that I wanted to do it once more. For the base I used China Glaze Haunted. I wasn't crazy about this alternative color scheme, but it has grown on me a bit.
