Rainbow Swirl Nails

Hello everyone! 

As you probably know, I received a bunch of awesome nail vinyls from Twinkled T a little while ago. One of the first set of vinyls that caught my eye was the cyclone vinyls! These look sooo awesome, and I decided to use them to do this rainbow swirl design.

#SwatchSunday: China Glaze Swatches and Review

Hello everyone!

Today I'm sharing with you these beautiful China Glaze polishes that I received from Live Love Polish. I am in love with these colors! Wearing such vibrant polishes really brightens up a gray winter day.

I hope you're ready for some swatch spam! This is a photo-heavy post!

Pink and Gold Nails | Mani Swap with Julie @wannaknowasecret!

Hello everyone!

Today I have this fun pink and gold mani that I did in a mani swap with Julie (@wannaknowasecret)!

Julie reached out to me last week asking if we wanted to do some nail art together again. It has been so long since we last collaborated! Of course I said yes, and we decided to do a mani swap! I chose this beautiful design of hers, inspired by Ashley Tisdale. I just love the combination of light pink and gold!  Click here to see her original version of this mani.

I'm pretty sure that Julie free-handed her accent nail in her mani since she is a nail wizard, but I used the skinny straight stripes nail vinyls from Twinkled T to be more precise since I just do not have that kind of free-hand skill! Haha :)

Holographic Houndstooth Nails

Hello everyone!

Today I have this holographic houndstooth design using the houndstooth stencils from Twinkled T!

Twinkled T was kind enough to send these to me, and I was especially excited about these houndstooth stencils! I have never done a houndstooth design before, because it seems a little ambitious for my free-handing skills... But these vinyls make it so easy!

Mint Gradient Butterfly Water Decal Nails | Born Pretty Store Review

Hello everyone!

Today I have a part two for sharing these products from Born Pretty Store. I also received these beautiful butterfly water decals!

By the way, don't forget to use my code NSBW10 for 10% off your order on!

I didn't want to just layer these over white, or just have it as an accent on one finger, so I decided to create a white to mint gradient underneath! I used Salon Perfect "Sugar Cube" and LVX "Mynt". I am very happy with how it turned out!

Black and White Chevron Nails | Born Pretty Store Review

Hello everyone! :)

Today I have this monochrome design using this rose nail stud and nail art brushes from Born Pretty Store! 

When I received this stud, I knew that I wanted to do a black and white design! I tend to lean away from them, because I love color, but I thought that it would be a nice change of pace.
