Matte Sharp Chevrons

Today I broke out some Zoya matte nail polishes. I used Zoya Aspen, Yves, and Honor. It does look a little rough though, because I didn't use any type of topcoat; I wanted this manicure to have the matte polishes' true finish, and this wouldn't have been possible even with a matte topcoat.

Floral for Easter

This is the manicure that I wore today for Easter, although it really isn't very Easter themed. I love both of the designs, but unfortunately it didn't end up being as cohesive looking as I expected. I used Color Club Meet Me At The Rink, Diggin' The Dancing Queen, Hot Hot Hot Pants, Macaroon Swoon, Zoya Tiana. The details for the flowers are Xtreme Wear Caribbean Coral, Xtreme Wear Pinch Of Punch, and Revlon Posh.

Muted Easter Nails

I ended up posting this a lot later than anticipated, so there will technically be two different designs going up today on Easter. For this Easter design I decided to use more subtle and muted colors than I typically would for this time of year. I also did freehand chevrons for the first time in ages! As usual, they were a pain to get to look decent, but I still loved painting them. I used Zoya Caitlin, Megan, Kristen, and Xtreme Wear Orchid Around.

Arrows and Aztec

Boy, do I hate painting arrows! The first time I ever really painted an arrow design was for this past Valentine's day, and it wasn't too bad, so I thought I would try out something for everyday, but it did not go so well. I used China Glaze Giver's Theme, Revlon Iconic, and Essie Miss Fancy Pants.

Spring Geometric

Hello! Today's design is pretty straightforward. I wouldn't typically put these colors together, but I love the result. I used China Glaze New Birth, Xtreme Wear Dabbler, Xtreme Wear Babe Blue, Xtreme Wear Peach Beach, and Zoya Jacqueline.

Feathers and Filigree

It's a pretty simple design for today. I sort of just did some doodling. I don't hate this, but I'm not super impressed by it; I feel like the middle nails look a little bland, and could have used some more of something. I used Xtreme Wear Dabbler, and China Glaze One Track Mind.

Cool Spring Skittle

Here's another springy floral design. I used Xtreme Wear Royal Hue, OPI You're Such A Buda-Pest, Xtreme Wear Wing It, China Glaze Mix and Mingle, Essie Vibrant Vibe, Zoya Tiana, and Revlon Posh. My pinky nail doesn't really fit in at all; I think I should have added some white to it.
