Speckled Neon Butterfly Wings

Hi Lovelies!

Okay, so I had a tougher time than expected parting ways with my Speckled Neon gradient from yesterday and I decided to play with it some more before moving on. I have often admired some of the lovely butterfly wing manicures out there, but never tried my hand at creating one until now...

Speckled Neon Gradient

I couldn't get enough of the adorable Specked Neon shades from InDecisive Lacquer that I showed you yesterday, so after swatching them, I decided to play around and create some nail art. Although these don't come in all the colors of a rainbow, I thought it might still be fun to put them in rainbow-y order and of course that meant some sort of gradient was in order...

InDecisive Lacquer Speckled Neons

Hi Everyone! Today I would like to show you the very cute Speckled Neon toppers from InDecisive Lacquer. I'm a big fan of the black and white speckled shades so I was quite excited to try the new neon additions to the line. I tried them out over black and white and I am pleased to say that they most certainly did not disappoint...

Fashion Inspired: Smoky Star Pumps

If you follow me on Instagram, then you may have already seen this manicure. I created and wore it early this week after a fellow Instagram member suggested showing off our shoe inspired manicures. I have done quite a few such manicures in the past and seem to often be inspired by shoes. For that reason, I really couldn't pass up the golden opportunity to dig through my inspiration folder which is filled with photos of shoes that I hope to one day recreate in the form of a manicure. I chose these beautiful gray star pumps because they were the perfect match for the gray shade I had been wearing at the moment...

Select Shades of Dance Legend Smoky Collection

Happy Friday everyone! I was recently given a wonderful opportunity to review some Dance Legend shades and I will be showing you my selections from a few of their different collections over the coming weeks. One of the collections that I'm head over heels in love with is the Smoky collection. Despite the fact that I would categorize these as Fall colors, I have been sporting them all week and still can't get enough of them...

Ruby Wing Sweet Fantasy Collection Review

Hi Everyone! Well here we are half way through summer and I'm just now showing you a Spring collection that I've had my hands on since February. It is true, I might be the worst blogger ever, but let me plead my case before you make up your mind. You see, the collection is Sweet Fantasy by Ruby Wing which means all of these beauties are solar active and require sunshine to swatch. I happen to live in Seattle which sees sunshine in February somewhere between never and never ever (OK, maybe I exaggerate, but it is not a lot). I kept putting off the swatching for sunny days that never came and then there was my long vacation so here we are. In the middle of July, I'm finally getting to show these beauties off...

Pastel Jelly Sandwich...

There was a time not too long ago when I was obsessing over pretty pastel shades with tiny specks of black glitter. To be exact, I was drooling over the El Corazon Eggs of Wild Birds collection. After playing around with the OPI Sheer Tints skittle manicure from yesterday, I realized that with a little glitter jelly sandwich action, I could create just about any speckled shade that I wanted thanks to InDecisive Lacquer...

Midnight Owls...

This is one of the very rare occasions when I get the chance to post about what is currently on my nails. A group of girls on Instagram thought it would be fun to post their nighttime inspired manicures this weekend. I got caught up in the excitement and created one for myself filled with stars, moons and adorable sleeping owls...

Neon Parrot...

Feels like forever since I've actually done any sort of nail art so I'm rather excited to have something new to share with you. I have been seeing everyone showing off their dry brush manicures (which I believe all started with this gorgeous manicure by Chalkboard Nails). I thought I'd give this look a try as well. I kept it as random and messy as possible and totally love it. The bright neon colors that I used reminded me of parrots, so here we are with what might possibly be the brightest pirate themed manicure I've seen...

Press Release: Zoya Naturel Deux (2)

Inspired by the desire to expand the popular neutral palette of the Zoya NATUREL collection, six (6) NEW, full-coverage creams in deeper hues were born.

Neons by OPI!

Hi Everyone! Sorry for such sporadic posting recently. There is nothing worse than having lots of beautiful polish to show you and very little time to do. I hope to return to my regularly scheduled posting soon. ;)

Today I would like to show you Neons by OPI. I was so excited for these beauties because it is not often that OPI releases such bright shades. Actually, I believe these are their first ever full-sized neons and they are now part of the permanent line which is so awesome. These are just perfect for the sunshine and summertime...

Glowing Flag with Serum N°5 What a Blast!

Happy Independence Day to all my US readers!

I will be working this evening and once again missing the fireworks this year, so it was hard for me to think about manicure ideas for the holiday. Quite frankly, I thought I might skip it all together this year until I put on Serum N°5 What a Blast and got inspired. While most of my glow in the dark nail art in the past has been centered around Halloween, how awesome does a glow in the dark flag sound for the 4th? I can turn out the lights and wiggle my fingers and make my own light show...

Polished by KPT & Serum N°5 Summer Fling Collaboration Shades Review...

While I was out gallivanting around Japan and Taiwan, the ladies of Polished by KPT and Serum N°5 were hard at work collaborating on a fun summer duo. I was so excited to come home to these two beauties waiting for me that they became my first two manicures after a month of nakie nails. These lacquers are part of a Summer Fling collaboration box which also includes a cuticle oil and some nail art accessories.
