Zoya Heart Manicure & Pink Week

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

For Pink/Heart/Love Week today, I'm doing this manicure inspired by this Pinterest link.

I used Zoya Chyna, one of the original Pixie Dusts, on my index and pinky fingers. Then Zoya Purity on the middle and ring fingers. Pepper, Tart and DOve were used for the red and pink hearts and gray dots.


Talk to you soon!

Twinsie Tuesday: Romantic

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose


Today we are doing Romantic Manicures. I recently purchased one of the new Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel polishes in Stay Classy and thought that would be the perfect base for this prompt. This is a really pretty mauve color. I am consistently impressed with Wet n Wild polishes, they are opaque in 2 coats and have really great formula's. The 'gel' technology doesn't really matter to me so I didn't test this for wear time but I love the color!

Then I added a heart spiraly nail vinyl and another WnW Megalast in Haze of Love (which I didn't realize until typing this up, lol. How fitting!)

Whatchu think?

China Glaze & Pink Week!

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I've decided to do a whole weeks worth of heart themed nail art because I want to expand my nail art practices this year. So get ready for Pink Week or Love Week or Heart Week or whatever you want to call it, lol.

Let's start with this manicure from Pinterest. I used China Glaze Pinking Out the Window, Salon Perfect Sugar Cube, and China Glaze Dancing and Prancing.
The heart is not perfect but it's super cute, right? I love Pinking Out the Window, it's such a pretty coral pink!

Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel Cyantific Method

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

I recently purchased one of the new Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel polishes (you will see that next week) and liked it so much that I bought 2 more! One of the polishes I bought the second time around is this baby, Cyantific Method (haha that name cracks me up!) This was 2 coats, without topcoat. These polishes are super shiny and so far I am so impressed with the two colors that I've tried so far.


Have you tried the new Wet n Wild 1 Step Wonder Gel polishes?? If so, what colors have you tried??

Fair Maiden Neon Gradient

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose

So I know that it's only February but I'm basically over winter and am ready for brights! I busted out my Fair Maiden Polishes that have been sitting on my nail rack, staring at me for months and decided to put them to use with a vertical gradient.

I did use a white base, Sally Hansen OMGhost. Then I used a cosmetic wedge to sponge on the polishes:

Don't By Shy (pink)
Reach For The Sky (purple)
Let's Get Physical (blue)
Aim To Misbehave (Lime Green)
Daredevil (Orange)

Then I added Fairy Godmother over the top because duh... holo.

Unfortunately I had zero sun to showcase this beautiful manicure and the ott-lite is what we have to work with for now. But you know it's neon and you know it's fabulous so trust me :)

Are you ready for neons? OR do you think I'm crazy and too early for this color season? LOL

Zoya Kelly

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose


I have a quick post today to show off Zoya Kelly is a dark gray polish with blue and purple undertones. I was feeling like a simple gray color and Zoya Kelly was the answer. This had a great formula and was opaque in two coats. Shown with topcoat.

For as simple as this color is, I don't own a lot of gray polish and sometimes a plain gray polish is just what I need :)

Twinsie Tuesday: Mix & Match

Hey guys!

Nothing To Disclose



 Today is Mix and Match day for Twinsie Tuesday and I didn't really know what I wanted to accomplish with this manicure so I just sort of started playing and this is what happened, lol.

I started with one coat (ONE COAT) of OPI Push & Shove, which I had somehow never used until tonight. Crazy silver chrome polish but I should have used a ridge filling base coat. Oh well, that's where OPI's Black Cherry Chutney came in. I used some various nail vinyls on my index and ring fingers and did a random dotticure on my middle finger. Then I painted one coat of Black Cherry Chutney on my pinky and went in with Push & Shove for a dry brush nail, another technique that I have never done but is so easy and cool and why am I wasting my time NOT doing this technique?!
