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.

Valentine's Day Nails

Happy Valentine's Day! Here is what I wore on my nails today. The pinks are China Glaze Feel The Breeze and Dune Our Thing. The only thing that's really bugging me about these nails is that stupid fiber on my ring finger!

PNMC: Hearts

Hello! I had to take a break from the 52 Week PNMC, but now I'm trying to get back into it. The prompt for this week is hearts. I decided to freehand some open hearts because it's something that I've never done before. The base is a gradient using China Glaze Wanderlust and Dashboard Dreamer.

Glitter Placement

Hello! Today's manicure is a glitter placement, which I love to do, despite how much work they can be. The base is China Glaze One Track Mind and the glitters are from Spoiled Pet My Peacock. This manicure looks pretty cool, but I think the photos don't really do it justice.

Color Club Do The Twist + Chevrons

 Hello! I'm back, mostly. I'm still not at 100%, but I was able to put together this mani. Unfortunately, the striping tape left some black residue on my nails and my hand isn't steady enough yet to fix it. The light pink is Xtreme Wear Berry Juicy, the hot pink is China Glaze Hang Ten-Toes, the yellow is Zoya Darcy, and the awesome glitter is Color Club Do the Twist.
