Disney Nails: 2015 Edition!

Hello everyone!

I apologize for not having new nails up in about a week, but I have had a few fun things happening for the past week and I didn't have enough spare time to get a post or a video up for you all!

This past Memorial Day weekend, I traveled with my high school music department to Florida and we performed in Disney World! It was so much fun and I absolutely loved going back to Disney. You might remember that last year I did some Minnie Mouse nails when I went to Disney, so I wanted to do something similar but slightly different for this Disney trip!

Thermal Butterfly Decal Nails | Born Pretty Store Review

Hello everyone!

Since I really have been loving the #104 thermal nail polish from Born Pretty Store, I decided to do a nail design with it!

I'm also using silver metallic butterfly water decals from Born Pretty Store in this mani.

Here is the nail polish transitioning (my pinky and the bottom half of most of my nails are cold):

Born Pretty Store Thermal Polish Swatch & Review

Hello everyone!

Today I have a really fun swatch and review for you all, with two thermal polishes from Born Pretty Store!

These polishes don't have names, so the only way to identify them is by their assigned numbers. I received #104 and #301.

First up is #301. This one changes from a sky blue (warm) to a periwinkle-purple (cold). The change is very subtle, but the color is so pretty!

(By the way, I have water on my hands and around my cuticles because I ran my nails underwater before these photos)

Here it is in its warm state:

And cold:

And starting to transition. Again, the change is very subtle:

Formula was tricky on this one. It was kind of patchy. With two coats, it was good enough from far away, but the camera would still pick up the bald spots, so here I am wearing three coats. The polish was a little thick, as well, and it took some time to dry. Nothing too bad, but I can't say that the formula was amazing.

Next up is #104. This one shifts from a dark purple (cold) to a deep magenta (warm). 

Here it is in the warm state:

And when it is cold:

And here it is transitioning:

The formula was much better on this one! It was two coats and the formula was less thick than the first. It went on pretty smoothly, as well. I actually LOVE both of the colors that this changes to! I was impressed much more with how the polish transition and 

You definitely need a top coat when using these two polishes. They dry to a slightly waxy, non-shiny finish. I used the Glisten and Glow HK Girl Top Coat for these pictures.

Royal Princess Nails

Hello everyone!

In case you haven't heard, there is a new royal baby: Charlotte Elizabeth Diana! I thought it might be fun to do some girly princess nails in honor of her :)

A while back I received this crown nail charm from Simply Spoiled Beauty and I thought it would be perfect for this design! (I don't currently see this exact charm listed on their site, but they have a ton of other nail bows and nail art tools that I'm sure you all will love.
