4th of July Skittlette

 Here are my nails this year for the 4th of July! I really tried to avoid doing yet another skittlette, but I just couldn't help it! The blue is China Glaze One Track Mind, and the red is Nicole by OPI Challenge Red-y. Stars are really not my strong suit, so they are a bit wonky, but I like how the overall look turned out.

Lace Half Moon Design

This is my first attempt at doing a lace pattern. I didn't base it directly off of anything, so I'm not sure if I really captured the look of lace. I hope you're able to see the details of the design, as the camera kind of washed out the colors and made them blend together more. The pink base is Color Club Kiss My French.

Purple Blue and Green Matte Skittle

Today's manicure features pretty much everything that I'm loving right now, chevrons, gradients, studs, and a matte finish! The purple is Xtreme Wear Wing it, the green is Zoya Tiana, and I honestly can not remember what the blue is, but I think it's probably China Glaze Boho Blues. For the matte finish I used OPI Matte Topcoat.

Pink and Black Floral

Hello! With this manicure I just really wanted to use pink and black, so I just came up with this on the fly. I'm not super in love with it, but it does looks kind of neat from a distance. The base is China Glaze Dune Our Thing, and the black is Zoya Anais. These were pretty difficult to photograph.

Shades of Purple Skittlette

Hello! Here's yet another skittlette manicure that I did, this time matte! I'm not sure what that white line on my middle finger is, but I'm pretty sure it came from the matte topcoat that I used. Other than that line, I love this! I think that gradients look especially good when matte. The polishes that I used are OPI Vant To Bite My Neck?, Xtreme Wear Wing It, and Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac.

Swirls and Random Dotting

Today's manicure is a pretty plain and simple one, I think. I really just wanted to do something using both of these colors, so I threw this together real quick. The pink is China Glaze Glow With The Flow and the green is China Glaze Treble Maker.

Quatrefoil And Polka Dot

Hello! Here's a design that I did the other day. I think it would have worked better if I hadn't used such a sparkly gold because the quatrefoil is kind of hard to see. I like the design, but I think the colors ended up being a bit too much. I used Xtreme Wear Babe Blue, Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, Xtreme Wear Golden-I, and the glitter is Nails In Westbourne Gardens.
