Roses On The Right

Here's a fun floral manicure that I threw together this weekend. I used Color Club Bell Bottom Babe, China Glaze Dune Our Thing, Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, and China Glaze Sweet Hook. This ended up looking much nicer than I expected, I'm really happy with it!

Distressed Nails + Studs

Here are some distressed nails that I did using the dry brush technique. The polishes that I used are Zoya Tove, Essie Power Clutch, Revlon Iconic, and a black. I feel like these nails aren't exactly my typical style, but I ended up liking them a lot more than I expected; unfortunately the studs ended popping off rather quickly.

PNMC: Mermaid

Hello! I'm a little bit late with this one, but last weeks 52 Week Challenge prompt was mermaid. For my mermaid nails I did a gradient using Zoya Mimi, Zoya Remy, and Zoya Charla. These polishes blended together so well! I used foils for the scale nail by painting the design with the foil adhesive and then laying a silver foil on top when it was dry. I really love this gradient, but unfortunately the only way I could get the color to show up on camera was to use this horrible lighting! It looked much better in person, I swear.

Zoya Tove

This is Zoya Tove from the recent Naturel Satins collection! I love the color and satin finish of this polish, however I did find that it was a little difficult to get a really nice smooth finish. To give the nails a little bit of something, I added some black studs. I really like these studs, and I was super impressed at how well they stayed on.

Greens and Purples Water Marble

 Today I have another water marble manicure. For this design I used China Glaze Re-Fresh Mint, Xtreme Wear Cuteapillar, China Glaze Exotic Encounters, China Glaze Sweet Hook, Xtreme Wear Wing It, and China Glaze All Aboard. I absolutely love how this one turned out! I think it's my favorite water marble of all the ones that I've ever done!

Water Marble

Hello! Here's a water marble design that I did recently. I used Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, Xtreme Wear Blue Babe, and China Glaze Fancy Pants. The polish spread out really thin, so the colors aren't as strong as I would have liked, but I think it still looks pretty neat.

PNMC: Ikat

The prompt this week is ikat. I'm not really a fan of the ikat manicure, but I found some interesting ikat designs online and used that for inspiration. The base is Zoya Jacqueline and the blues are Xtreme Wear Babe Blue and Essie Hide And Go Chic.

Zoya Metallics

Hello! I recently got some new Zoya polishes and I wanted to try them out, so I kind of just threw this manicure together. I used Zoya Dillon, Hudson, and Rory. These polishes are so reflective that it was really difficult to really get any pictures of this design.

Taped Waves

 Hello! For this manicure I used some crafting scissors to cut tape into wavy shapes. Using this tape helped me to get really nice clean lines for my waves. The base is China Glaze All Aboard and History of the World, although it's are to tell because they are kind of blending together a lot, and the gold is Zoya Severine.
