Swatch Series #6; Color Club No Name & Snake Print

Hey everyone. I hope you are all doing well . I just finished a mani to match my Halloween costume. But today I wanna show you a quick pink mani with a nice snake skin accent finger. I used a Color Club pink on all the nails but the ring fingers. On the ring finger I used Essie Ballet Slippers. On top of the Essie shade I blended a pink and a purple from color club. These also had no names. This was actually a pretty simple mani so I hope you enjoyed !

Swatch Series #5; China Glaze Solar Power

Hey ladies ! How are you all ? I hope you are doing well. Today is just a nice day for me . Just hanging out. I feel like I haven't posted in so long. But I'm back again with another swatch post. While I was at Sally's I picked up China Glaze Solar Power because it was on sale. Turns out it was an absolutely gorgeous color. The color application was smooth and it was opaque in 2 coats. The color payoff was absolutely amazing. After swatching it I decided that I should do a little nail art. I decided on something a little abstract. I ended up doing a saranilssooon's inspired manicure. I used white acrylic paint and a silver striper. Then Voila ! I was done. Enjoy !

Swatch Series #4; Street Chic and a Rose Mani

Hello everyone. I hope you all are having a beautiful Sunday. It's nice out here and it's just the perfect day to just hang out. Again I've been gone for a while and I apologize. Either way I have a mani today that I really like. It's inspired by one of Emerald Sparkled's manis. So I started off with swatching China Glaze Street Chic. This polish went on well and was opaque in exactly one coat but of course I did too. Then I used OPI San-Tan Tonio. After doing so I used black acrylic paints to draw some roses on every other nail. The nails that were bare I just put two rhinestones on them. Then I top coated and Voila ! Done. Enjoy !

Swatch Series #3; Lady Like & A Mani

Hey everyone ! How are you guys doing ? I hope you are well. I'm pretty good myself. I think I'm finally back on my post schedule. I missed reading all of your posts and your comments. Well today I have a swatch post and a cute little mani. I used Essie's Lady Like and OPI Alpine Snow as a base. Since it was my first time using Essie's Lady Like I thought I'd at least swatch it for you guys. It went on nice and smooth in 2 coats. It's a beautiful  taupe color and great for fall. After swatching the color I decided on revisiting a rose mani that I had done a while ago. I think these roses turned out much better because I took more time and paid attention to detail. As the rose bases I used OPI Black Onyx and China Glaze Spontaneous. Then I just used a white and purple acrylic paint to form the roses. Then I later remembered that I forgot to add the petals so then I added them later. Enjoy !

OPI Red Shatter

Hey everyone ! It's been a couple of days since I last spoke with you all. I hope you guys are doing well. I'm extremely exhausted and in need of a break. Sorry that I'm slacking off you guys. I'm trying hard to post, I promise. While I've been gone I've almost reached 100 followers. This meas that I will be hosting my very first giveaway soon so stay tuned for that ! I really appreciate everyone who sticks with me even though I haven't been posting much. Well anyways lets get on with the mani. I received a bottle of Red Shatter for my birthday from someone very special to me so I decided to use it as soon as possible. I decided on white french tips with the OPI Red Shatter on top and a simple red line. Afterward I painted my ring finger white and drew cherries. They aren't the best but now that I know how to draw them they will be much better. Well I hope you enjoy !
