Hot Apple with gold crackle

Hey Guys!

With the weather getting nicer and nicer I was dying to find the most perfect red/hot pink mix and so I went searching through my stash and I found it with Hot Apple from China Glaze. It was so bright and so perfect for my mood. It was so good, I even put it on my toe nails as well! I also did an accent nail of gold crackle, Antiqued Gold from Sally Hansen.

I'm just getting more and more excited for the warm weather and summer! I hope you guys are too and thanks for taking a look :)

Mac Ruffian Inspired

Hey guys!

I was flipping through my May edition of InStyle and came across pictures of the Mac Ruffian Press-On nails and fell in love! The nails are going to be released in June. They are two or three toned nails that have a half moon and a french tip. I'm sure it's been done before but this is the first time I've seen it so I decided to give it a shot. I'm not a huge fan of french tips personally because my natural nail shape doesn't really work well with the typical french tip shape but I figured with a half moon at the bottom, it might work a little better.

The colors I used from left to right: Nice is Nice from Essie, Dove from Zoya, and Anja from Zoya.

As you can tell, I wasn't patient enough to wait for my nails to be totally dried so Anja, the dark purple, streaked when I put my top coat on. If this ever happens to you, you could always add a layer of glitter to help hide the streaks if you don't try to clean the streaks up. I just left these because I didn't feel like doing either when I originally did them, it was late and I was tired and just decided to let it go. No one even noticed until I would point it out. 

I hope you guys like it and give it a shot! I'm sure the Mac ones are going to be a little pricey so why not do them yourself!

Neon Water Marble

Hey guys!

I've been seeing a lot of nude colors mixed with some neon colors all over from fashion to home decor and everything in between so I figured I would give it a shot on my nails! It didn't quite turn out how I hoped but I still liked the end result.

The base color I used was Blank Canvas Cream from Finger Paints. This is one of my favorite nudes. It goes really well with my skin tone and just a nice nude for me!

The colors I used in the marbling were all from China Glaze, from left to right: Fuchsia, Coral Star, and White Cap. 

The main problem I had with this water marble is that I used a bowl instead of a cup like I usually do. The polish didn't want to spread out to the edges of the bowl and if it did spread out, it would dry quickly. I just kept going and hoped for the best. It didn't turn out awfully but I was hoping for better. Hope you liked it!
