Sssssexy Half Moons

     Hey ladies! Sorry for the lack of blog posts, I started my semester this week so it's all been pretty hectic. Here's a catch up post on a mani I did earlier in the week.
     I recently saw a pin of a deep red mani with negative space half moons. I thought it was so cute and I totally wanted to try it.

Boyfriend Did My Nails!

     Today I have a post to share my number one supporter for my nail aspirations: my boyfriend. Every day he'll grab my hand and look at what I've done with my nails and tell me how cool they are (like he really cares) and he'll sit there as I show him polishes I want (like he really cares) and he listens to me ramble about different polishes and their formulas, textures, pigmentation, you name it (like he really cares). When I told him about the tag on Instagram #boyfrienddidmynails, I was ecstatic that he was more than happy to participate.
     Here's a little picture of him actually doing the nails

     How precious :)

Nude Nails with Rose Accents

     Hey ladies! I've been getting ready for my next semester of college so I've been falling a little behind on posts, sorry about that. And I probably won't get into the swing of things for a few weeks once the semester starts, so try to bear with me. 
     Due to the great response I got to my rainbow gradient nail art I decided to do some more nail art. Granted, it is not nearly as intricate, but it's a little something different than my regular swatches. 

     The colors I used (from left to right) were OPI Sandy Hook Green, Covergirl Forever Fawn, Ruby Wing Groupie, and Ruby Wing Sweet Rose. Ruby Wing polishes change color in the sun, but of course I had this mani on a rainy day so I sadly was unable to photograph it.

Gradient Rainbow Nail Art

     Hey there ladies! Today I have for you a little something different. I decided to sit down and take some time to do some nail art. I was looking through my Instagram pictures and through my blog and realized I rarely do nail art anymore. I looked through Pinterest and through some of my liked photos on IG and found some inspiration.

    It all started with a simple rainbow gradient. For the gradient I used (from left to right) China Glaze Shocking Pink, Orange Knockout, and Celtic Sun, Funky Fingers Lime Light, 220 Volts, and Urban Outfitters Bandeau. I topped it off with a light holo glitter from NOPI called Love Your Life.

Essie Shine of the Times

     One of the first polishes I ever had the I-need-to-have-it-or-I'll-die urges with was Essie Shine of the Times. It was so difficult to find that bottle without ordering it online, but I managed it! I snatched the last one off the shelves of a local Walmart back in April. A few days ago I realized I had only used it once and I never did a proper swatch of it. So I decided to do just that.

B Squared Lacquer - Iceberg

     Good evening ladies! How are you all in the North Eastern US enjoying the snow? I haven't left all day and I'm so happy about it. I hate when it's under 70 degrees, I have no idea why I'm still in Connecticut...
     Anyways, tonight I have for you a few swatches of a B Squared Lacquer polish. This one is called Iceberg and it's from the Christmas & New Years collection. I won this in a little giveaway on Instagram from Indie500nails right before Christmas.
