I didn't have a lot of time to paint my nails last week so this was something that I just quickly threw together. The base is Zoya Finley and the details are Color Club Hot Like Lava.

I don't know what it is about these nails, but for some reason they feel pretty old school nail art to me; like a type of design that would have been popular 5 years ago. I do really like these though, but then again I always love how white and black look together. For the pinks, I primarily used China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes and Color Club Raspberry Rave.

This is my first time doing a mandala design, despite what a popular nail look they are. This is mostly because I don't have any stamping plates or vinyls with mandalas and I've only just gotten the courage to try freehand painting one. I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond, China Glaze Shower Together, Zoya Tru, and a little bit of China Glaze Tart-y For The Party.

I wanted to go a little bit out of my comfort zone with this watermarble; we have red, a color I hardly wear, shimmery polishes, which I also don't wear a lot and never marble with, and a design pattern that is completely new to me. Despite all of this, I ended up loving the outcome! I used Zoya Cyma, China Glaze Awaken, and a black polish.

It's actually pretty rare that I wear nails that are this bright, so this was definitely a fun one to wear, and stare at, for a few days. Every aspect of this manicure I came up with on the fly, so in hindsight, there are some parts of the design that I'm unhappy with. This is also entirely freehand, which makes it a "better from afar" look, but regardless, I am still fond of the overall effect. I used China Glaze Hang-Ten Toes, China Glaze Let's Jam, China Glaze Boho Blues, and Orly Lemonade. I seriously love these polishes, but I typically stay away from them because I find that they can be difficult to accurately capture on camera, however this one went pretty well!
