May TPC: Day 4

Welcome to the final day of the Tri-Polish Challenge for the month of May! This is the only manicure I've come up with this month that incorporates all three colors. I used Essie Mint Candy Apple, Revlon Iconic, and China Glaze Seduce Me. I got a surprising amount of compliments on this manicure! A lot of people asked me if I had actually painted it, which, to me, is the best compliment of all! It kind of looks like freaky eyeballs to me.

May TPC: Day 3

Hello! Today is the third day of the May Tri-Polish Challenge. I wasn't able to participate in the second day because my prom was actually that same Thursday. Since none of this months colors were in my dress I just had to skip it. This is the manicure that I wore for prom. I used OPI Here Today... Aragon Tommorow, and China Glaze Starboard. The glitters are from Color Club Orna-Minted.
Anyway, this is what I came up with for today's challenge. All day I've been thinking it was Monday and then I remembered at last minute that it indeed was not. I was planning on using tape to do this, but I really didn't have time, so I quickly free-handed the design. I'm not thrilled with it at all. I used China Glaze Seduce Me and Revlon Iconic.

Minty Stripes

It's Sunday! For some reason every Sunday I just get the urge to use striping tape! I recently got a few new nail polishes, and among them were China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, and Revlon Iconic. I thought the two colors would look nice together, so I started throwing together a manicure. I'm very happy with how this turned out! I think it looks neat and I really like how the colors look together.

Polka Dots and Color Block

Hi! Recently I was just playing around with some nail designs and this came about, somehow. I originally was just doing to have the stripes at the tips of my nails, but I thought that the design needed something more, thus this manicure was created. I used Zoya Shelby, China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, and Xtreme Wear White On.

Pink Galaxy

Hello, today I have some galaxy nails. I really love galaxy nails, but for some reason I never really paint them. Recently there was an event at my school, and the theme was space. I decided I would paint celestial nails for  the event, but I wanted to mix it up a little, so I did a pink and purple galaxy! I used Xtreme Wear Pretty In Hot Pink, Color Club Pucci-Licious, and Disco Dress. I also sponged on a little bit of Nicole By OPI Let's Make A Comet-Ment.

A Classy Design

Hi! Today's manicure is very simple, but I got a lot of compliments on it. I call this my classy design because I don't normally wear manicures this tame. I wasn't sure if I wanted to fill in the sort of half moon part, so I tried it out on my ring finger. I figured if I didn't like it then it could just be an accent nail. Honestly, I still don't know which I like more! Plain black is extremely reflective so this was very difficult to photograph. I used Xtreme Wear Black Out and Celeb City.

May TPC: Day 1

Today is the first day of the Tri-Polish Challenge for the month of May. the colors for may are red, grey, and blue, which, to me, are pretty tricky, but I guess that's why it's a challenge! For the first day I just used two of the colors, blue and grey, and did a cheetah print! I used Essie Mint Candy Apple, and Revlon Iconic.

Paisley Bandana

Hello! Today's nails are inspired by bandana's! When I was younger I used to wear bandana's all the time. I particularly remember wearing a dark blue one with white paisley designs on it. The base of this manicure is China Glaze Man Hunt. I think if I had made the print a little larger it would have ended up looking cleaner, but that's alright!

Prismatic Glitter Gradient

Hi! Today I have a simple glitter gradient. I was digging through my stash recently and I came upon my China Glaze Prismatic nail polishes. I've never tried them on top of another color so I grabbed China Glaze Liquid Crystal and layered it over OPI Vant To Bite My Neck? It's not a terribly impressive manicure but I think it's really pretty, and I love the duochrome of the glitter!

Once Upon A Time

 Hello! Today my nails are inspired by the tv show Once Upon A Time. It's my favorite show and the season finale was on today, so, why not do some nail art for it? For the manicure I painted the Once logo that appears on the title card before every episode. The base is Xtreme Wear Blue It, and the writing is Essie No Place Like Chrome.

Dotted Swirls

Hello! I'm not sure how I feel about today's design.. I first saw this awesome dotty swirl design from Nuthin' But A Nail Thing, and I absolutely loved it! In my rendition, I think that the swirl isn't quite noticeable enough, however, I do love these colors together! My major mistake was not leaving enough room for the second color of dots, so I had to sloppily squish them in. I'll just have to give this another go sometime in the future!
The polishes I used are Color Club Vintage Couture, Pucci-Licious, and Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac.

Iron Man 3

Hello! I am about to go see Iron Man 3! Obviously I did my nails for the occasion. From what I can gather from previews for the film, Tony Stark basically builds an army of suits, each with different abilities. For my nails I decided to showcase the masks of some of the suits making an appearance in the film. On my pointer is Rhodey's new Iron Patriot Suit, on the middle finger is  "HeartBreaker" The ring finger has Tony's primary suit in this film. On my pinky is "shotgun," and on my thumb is "Igor."
Pointer: Essie No Place Like Chrome, China Glaze Cranberry Splash.
Middle: China Glaze Champagne Bubbles, Mommy Kissing Santa
Ring: Essie Good As Gold, China Glaze Mommy Kissing Santa
Pinky: Essie No Place Like Chrome, Xtreme Wear Gunmetal
Thumb: Color Club Cold Metal, Essie No Pace Like Chrome
  *All of the eyes are China Glaze Sea Spray.
