OPI Infinite Shine Review & Leopard Print Nails

Hello everyone!

The other day I got some super exciting nail mail: The new OPI Infinite Shine system, which I received from Preen.Me as a part of their #PreenMeVIP program!

I actually snapped these two pictures when I first opened this, because I was so excited and the packaging was so cute!!!

I received 10 polishes as well as the special base coat (primer) and top coat (gloss), and they came in this little box!

Pink and White Lace Nails | Born Pretty Store Nail Wrap Review

Hello everyone!

As many of you probably know by now, I absolutely love girly, pink designs, and I love the look of lace nails. However, I don't have the patience or fine enough brushes to paint them by hand, and I have never tried stamping before so I haven't attempted doing lace nails that way.

Luckily, Born Pretty Store was kind enough to send me these gorgeous white lace nail wraps to try out! They have a clear backing and have little silver rhinestones as a little accent.

St. Patrick's Day Glitter Gradient with Salon Perfect "Luck of the Irish"

Hello everyone!

I've had a total nail blogger fail, not to mention a total Irish-girl fail... I had absolutely no nail art for St. Patrick's Day! My nails weren't even painted green yesterday!

Luckily, I came home from school yesterday afternoon to some St. Patrick's nail mail from Salon Perfect. I wish I could have gotten it sooner, so I could have had time to swatch them all and write a full blog post for you, but I just couldn't get a whole collection review up in a few hours!

I think I will still be reviewing the collection, but it will be up later. Sorry again for not having these polishes for a St. Patrick's Day swatch spam!

This is a glitter topper from the collection, appropriately named "Luck of the Irish"! It's a fun, glittery polish (gold hex glitter with gold but mostly green micro-glitter) in a clear base.

Textured Mermaid Scale Nails | Snail Vinyls Review

Hello everyone!

Today I have a very fun (and summery!) design using scale nail art vinyls from Snail Vinyls! Yup, I am sooo done with winter and I can't wait for the warmer weather.

When I first saw these scale vinyls, I knew that I wanted to do a mermaid scale nail design. I picked up OPI "Honey Ryder' and Nicole by OPI "That's What I Mint" because they are two gorgeous textured polishes that not only compliment each other but they make perfect mermaid colors!

Born Pretty Store Black & White Lace Nail Wrap Review

Hello everyone!

Today I have a review of these black and white Born Pretty Store nail wraps!

For those of you who aren't very good with freehand designs or just aren't very good at nail art, you will be excited to hear about these! The nail wraps are easy to apply and don't require any drying time or extra tools.

 I did add a bit of my own flair to this mani rather than using the wraps on all of my nails, because I really wanted to include these rhinestones from Born Pretty Store that I have been loving lately! I know I kind of went crazy with the bling, but I had to add a bit of sparkle with the black nails :)

Soft Purple Gradient Nails with Born Pretty Store Bow

Hello everyone!

Today I have a nice "refresher" mani to share with you all. I wanted to do something simple and pretty that would compliment this cute little silver nail bow from Born Pretty Store (these come in a bunch of different, silver and pearl designs, but the one I'm using here is #727).

After a serious amount of resisting from reaching for a light pink, I picked up Color Club "Holy Chic" for the gradient in this mani. Not only do I love the name, but the color is stunning and creates such a lovely gradient when paired with white. I've really been loving purples and blues lately, and while this is definitely a light purple it does lean towards that sort of cool purple/periwinkle color. It is gorgeous!

Aqua Floral Phone Case Inspired Nails

Hello everyone!

I didn't have a lot of time for nails this week, but I really wanted to try out a freehand floral pattern. I really miss doing freehand designs! I used to only do designs like this but I guess my style has changed since then.

Anyway, I got the inspiration for this floral pattern from my sister's phone case. It has such a pretty floral pattern and I really wanted to recreate it on my nails! The design didn't turn out quite how I wanted it to, but I decided to post this anyway.
