Spring Swirl Watermarble

Today I have another watermarble! I wanted to play with some new polishes I'd gotten and try some different designs in the water. I used Xtreme Wear Orchid Around, Xtreme Wear Royal Hue, and OPI You're Such A Budapest. These polishes worked so well in the water, probably the best combination I've ever had!

Holo Gradient and Zebra Print

Hello! I did a vertical gradient using some really pretty Milani holos that my friend recently passed down to me. I thought the gradient looked really nice, but it was a little bland for me, so I had to add some zebra print. I used Milani Cyberspace, Digital, HD, Hi-Res, Hi-Tech. The zebra print is with Color Club Revvvolution.

Lemonade Watermarble

I was a little short on time this week, so I decided to do a watermarble. I think that when you find a good combination of polishes that work well together watermarbling can actually be a really quick way to get a cool design. This was supposed to be 'lemonade' themed, but in the water the pinks merged with the yellows and became more of a coral color. I used Xtreme Wear All Bright, Xtreme Wear Tickled Pink, Orly Lemonade, and Zoya Darcy.

Orange and Blues Nautical

Here are some slightly nautical nails for today! I got the inspiration for this design from a set of stickers that were being sold on the Etsy shop Scribble Prints Co. a little while ago. I used Zoya Cole, OPI Can't Find My Czechbook, and China Glaze One Track Mind. I like this design, but it's not as neat as I would like because I was in a bit of a rush.

Burgundy Chevrons and Star Studs

Hello! I thought with this one I would try placing studs in a bit of a different place for once, so I came up with this. I used China Glaze Purrr-Fect, OPI DS Extravagance, and the gold is OPI Golden Rules!.

Matte Cheetah Print + Gradient

Hello! It's been a little while since I've really done any animal print. I was really in the mood for more neutral colors with this one, so I went for some taupes. The purple is Xtreme Wear Lacey Lilac and the taupe colors are Essie Miss Fancy Pants and China Glaze Foie Gras. I wore this glossy for about a day, but I just knew it would look much better matted.

Studs and X's

Here's a quick mani that I threw together because I was really in the mood for this color scheme. The grey is Xtreme Wear Midnight Sky, the silver is Xtreme Wear Celeb City, and the purple is China Glaze Plur-Ple.

Flakie Fingers

 Today I have two flakie manicures! I love flakie polishes, but I just don't find myself reaching for them all that often. This first design has Essie Shine Of The Times on top of China Glaze One Track Mind, with a little detailing using Color Club Cold Metal.

For this one I used Zoya Opal on top of Nails Inc Kensington.
