Black Tie

Happy Wednesday;

For this installation of #MonthlyMani I’m rocking my version of the theme “Black Tie”. I did what any girl with so little time yet so much need for a fun nail art does, I used polka dots. They are so easy to make (you can use a dot maker tool or the tip of a bobby pin) and look like you put in some effort. Instead of a base coat, I used a nail hardener so my nails can hold up better in the colder weather. I also used a glittery black nail polish for the polka dots.  I added a random red one on each nail because it is so unexpected but also because I was inspired by the dress Kerry Washington wore on Jimmy Fallon.

A Few Drops of Jupiter

Loves;

It’s Monday which rhymes with manicure so I’m starting the week of with a #manimonday post. I found this fab picture of a nail art idea while doing my daily readying of Refinery 29. It caught my eye because of how simple it is and still so edgy and of the moment so I copied it (what is it they say about imitation). It didn’t take that long to recreate and the overall feeling I get every time I look down at my fingers is happiness, so yay! Thoughts?!

Think Pink

This months #MonthlyMani is themed “think pink” in honor of breast cancer awareness month. I wanted to make sure that my pink polish was the main focus but didn’t want the manicure to be plain so I did some navy blue stripes to add some interesting contrast.

Lilac

Happy first day of October;

Sharing with you all a quick manicure I rocked this last week. I also painted my toes the shade of lilac and am absolutely obsessed with it, it is supper cute and reminiscent of summer while still being appropriate for fall.

#MonthlyMani | Autumnal Hues

The Autumn season is associated with burnt orange and other festive yellow shades mainly, I think, because of the leaves and overall crispness in the air. However, when I think of Autumnal hues I’m drawn to darker versions of my summer favorites like dark greens, navy and dark reds.

The color I chose for this months #MonthlyMani link up is a deep purple which I used to create a v shaped half-moon mani. I finished the look off by applying a matte top coat both to help the polish last longer and to create a fun, non-shiny texture. It’s a bit messy and uneven because I didn’t use tape to make the v but I really like that it looks diy.
