Pink Hourglass

The pink is Color Club Ulterior Motive,  the purple is Xtreme Wear Painted Lady with a coat of Xtreme Wear Pink Grapefruit on top, and the silver is OPI Your Royal Shine-ness. I think the shimmer in these polishes is cool, so here are a bunch of unnecessary photos.

Roses on White

Here's a pretty standard floral manicure. I originally painted this intending to matte it, but the glossy just looked so much better, so I stuck with that. The base is China Glaze Frosty and the roses are mostly China Glaze Nice Caboose, and the leaves are Zoya Shawn.

Muted Spring Flowers

Here's a floral design I did a few weeks ago. It didn't all turn out quite as I wanted, but I do think some of the flowers look nice. The base colors are Color Club Kiss My French and Zoya Megan. The flowers are primarily Color Club Macaroon Swoon and Xteme Wear Tickled Pink.

Headphones Inspired

I recently got a new pair of headphones and the ear buds had this cute design on it that I thought would make a good nail look. For the gradients I used China Glaze Glow With The Flow, China Glaze Feel The Breeze, China Glaze Metro-Pollen Tin, and Zoya Darcy. The blues are China Glaze One Track Mind and China Glaze Capacity To See Beyond.

Half Quatrefoil Half Floral

I only did these nails a few weeks ago, and yet I can hardly remember anything about them. I like the contrast between the styles and colors a lot. I do wish I was a little more careful with the quatrefoil though.

Full Rose Nail

This is another manicure that I did while experimenting with jelly polishes.The roses are China Glaze Giver's Theme, and the base is Zoya Paloma. Unfortunately, the roses ended up blending in more than I expected, but because the base is jelly the nails look kinda cool when lit from behind.

I'm not a big fan of wearing a lot of yellow on my nails, so to make the base a little more interesting I added some subtle splatter using  Orly Lemonade, Zoya Jacqueline, Zoya Cole, Zoya Darcy, and Color Club Hot Hot Hot Pant. I started on my ring finger, initially painting the design in a different direction, but I thought it looked more like fishnet than honeycomb, so I switched it for the rest of the nails. The color choice was definitely out of my comfort zone, but I ended up loving these.
