Hot Pink Triangle Nails

I have some fun nail art for you guys today! I started out trying to do nails with four triangles, but decided to go for three at the last minute...and I love how they turned out!

I began with two coats of a hot pink Color Club polish I have. I was gifted this polish, and it came nameless, though I do believe it's part of the Poptastic Collection. Anyways...I LOVE THIS POLISH. It's such a neon pink, with no white polish undies required! Amazing. Once it was dry, I added striping tape in an X shape across my nails. Then I polished China Glaze Recycle in the top triangle created by the tape, and Zoya Willa in the two right triangles. For my accent nail, I polished ellagee's BOOM! in the top triangle, and an unreleased darker grey glitter bomb by ellagee in the side triangles. Once the tape was off, I used top coat and that was it! Enjoy! :)

Night Gradient with Fairy Dust

I've been craving a gradient covered with China Glaze's Fairy Dust lately, so here are the nails that satiated that craving! I wanted my nails to look like the night sky, but I worried that a gradient with dark blue and black wouldn't show up well. Therefore, I decided upon a dark blue and grey gradient!

I began with two coats of KBShimmer's My Life's Porpoise. I then ripped a little piece off of a makeup sponge and used it to dab on KBShimmer's Stonewashed. Once I was satisfied with the gradient, I added one coat of Fairy Dust before top coating the whole look. Enjoy! :)

Indian Ocean Chevrons

I was going through my Helmer and Models Own Indian Ocean caught my eye. This polish HAS to be one of my all-time favorites! It's so stunning. It's a color-shifting bottle of awesome! I chose Zoya Ryan to go with it, though Essie Bikini So Teeny is my usual go-to undies for Indian Ocean. Ryan is a really gorgeous deep blue cream that I fell in love with. I've been obsessed with using blue polish for nail art lately! 

I began with two coats of Ryan. When she was dry, I polished Indian Ocean on my pinkie nail. Then, I stuck mini chevron decals by Nail Vinyls on my ring nail. I polished Indian Ocean over them, pulled them off, top coated all of my nails, and that's that! Enjoy! :)

Zoya Naturel Deux Part 2

{Press Sample}

Ready for the second half of the Naturel Deux Collection by Zoya? Just as I said with the first part of the collection, these creams were flawless and full coverage in two coats. I just love creamy, perfect polishes! These polishes are neutral and totally work appropriate, but would also make an awesome addition to some nail art. I think they'd also be fabulous with some glitter over the top! The possibilities are endless! 

Zoya can be purchased at salons, online at, and Ulta! Enjoy! :)

Snowflake Nails

{Polishes and Vinyls Used Provided for Review}

Ready for some snowy, wintery nails?? KBShimmer sent me some nail vinyls with her winter collection, and I've been dying to use the snowflake ones! I began with two coats of KBShimmer's Eclipse, a simple black cream that applies like a dream! 

When Eclipse was dry, I added the line of snowflakes decal to my ring nail, and two larger snowflakes to my middle nail. I polished ellagee's group exclusive Ell-sa over the decals. Ell-sa is an icy blue holo polish. As soon as Ell-sa was polished over the decals, I pulled them off and was left with some easy to do, snowy nails! Since these decals are so detailed, they are a little trickier to pull off. If you pull them carefully, they won't give you any issues at all!

Christmas Light Nails

{Polishes and Vinyls Used Provided for Review}

I'm really enjoying working on Christmas nail art this year! Christy from KBShimmer was kind enough to send some of her Winter Holiday nail vinyls along for me to try when she sent her winter polishes. The best part about these vinyls is that you get a variety of decals on each sheet, so you aren't limited to just one design. I immediately fell in love with the string of lights vinyls. Those are the ones I will be showing you today! At $5 per sheet, they're totally affordable!

I began with a base of an exclusive silver by ellagee. When that was dry, I stuck the vinyls on and polished KBShimmer's Eclipse, a black cream, over them. I pulled the vinyls off immediately after, leaving me with a silver trail of lights. I then used ellagee's Glass jelly polishes and a dotting tool to dab color onto the bulbs. Top coat sealed in this festive look! Enjoy! :)

Festive Fortification

{Polishes Used Provided for Review}


I have another set of discontinued polishes today! However, these polishes are a lot newer than Cult Nails Seduction (Monday's post), so they should be a lot easier to find for sale in Facebook groups. Laura of ellagee and Raph of Digital Nails got together to create a duo of bright colors to help give the wearer a mental boost to fight off the stress of the holiday season! 

Bastion of Bling and Garrison of Glitz are two to three coat jelly bases packed with color complimentary glitter. I did a teal base and a burgundy base for some simple nail art. Once those were dry, I used some single chevron Nail Vinyls to create upper and lower triangles. I polished Garrison of Glitz on the teal nails, and Bastion of Bling on the burgundy nails. One coat of top coat and I was all set! Enjoy! :)
