Bestie Twin Nails with The Little Canvas!

Hey guys!

Last week, Alaina from The Little Canvas sent out a call for someone to do a manicure swap or bestie twin nails and I thought this would be a great opportunity for me to post more than once a month! Haha!  So here we are!

We drew inspiration from this picture from Pinterest. I think the flowers are perfect colors for spring/summer!

I used OPI's My Vampire Is Buff (3 coats) and then dotted Essie's Butler Please, Bettina's Resort Starfish, and Sation Abbacadazzle. I finished with a coat of my trusty China Glaze Fairy Dust and topped it with Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat.

I didn't love the colors together once I had them on the nails but I stuck with them :-)

Go check out Alaina's post, I'm sure it's fantastic!

Talk to you soon!

Operation Helmer: May Results!

Hey guys!

How are you? I felt like I was going to be failing miserably at this month's challenge again but something kicked me in the buns towards the end of the month and I manager 8 manicures. Which doesn't sound like a lot but it's better than I've done in the past! LOL

The first manicure I did was using Nails Inc Kensington High Street with Nails Inc Baker Street and Deborah Lippman Va Va Voom on the middle two fingers.

Next was OPI's La Paz-itively Hot. I forget about this color and it's so pretty!

Cupcake Polish Life's A Beach. Guys. NEON BLUE HOLO! /dead.

Next, a teal skittle mani using:
ILNP Sniffany on the index and pinky and OPI Love. Angel. Music. Baby for the dots
Pipe Dream Polish Hello, Earthling on the thumb and middle
Essie Naughty Nautical on the ring finger with Lac Attack Imagine. Circle Glitters!

Next, I was feeling gradienty, so I busted out this bad boy with my Maybelline Bleached Neons (Bleached in Peach and Day Glow Teal), and a glitter from Northern Star Polish called Neon Chic. You guys on instagram loved this one :-)

I was still feeling the gradient vibe so I used ILNP Charmingly Purple and AC Slater for this purple to black smoky gradient.

And more ILNP for my first saran wrap mani! Under the Bleachers and Cupcake Polish She Wears Short Shorts. So fun! Reminiscent of crackle, but not as obnoxious.

And finally, some nail art! I used my buddy Alaina's tutorial for these super cute pansies!
Revlon Spanish Moss
LynBDesigns The Credible Hulk
OPI Can't Let Go
CarpeNoctem Pimp My Purple
Love Angeline Operation Sun

So I didn't really stick to the drawer (OPI) that I was supposed to this month but my untrieds bin has turned into a bin, a box, and a basket so I need to use those guys! I am purging as I go, don't worry :-)

What did you think of May's manicures??
