Multicolor Herringbone Nails!

Hiii! How's your Friday going?? Good I hope, Fridays are pretty awesome.

Today I have a bright herringbone mani! I've never done this pattern on my nails before, but I like them! I did them with striping tape. Next time I might try making them a little more complicated. Or maybe even freehanded, oOooOooh! And maybe all my nails!

  • OPI: Where Did Suzi's Man-go?
  • OPI: I Just Can't Cope-acabana

Black, White & Mint Stripes!

Hey everyone! How was your first day of summer? Awesome I hope! We had a big graduation party for my brother, and a bunch of cousins and it was perfect.

My nails for today are actually what I wore at one of my cousin's graduations to match my dress. It was black and white striped and I had a mint colored belt on. I loved that combo so I tried it on my nails.

I used:
  • OPI: My Boyfriend Scales Walls
  • OPI: Black Onyx
  • China Glaze: Highlight Of My Summer
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Polka Dot Matte Nails!

Happy Father's Day! To probably the .01% of Father's that read my blog...

Today I have some really subtle nails, but I thought they were pretty. I actually was inspired by a shirt my grandmother was wearing, hahaha. It was a light tan color with shiny gold polka dots, I told her "I'm going to paint my nails like this shirt," so I did... I used a light gray though instead of tan, mostly because I still hadn't used my "Don't Bossa Nova Me Around" OPI polish.

I used:
  • OPI: Don't Bossa Nova Me Around
  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • OPI: Matte Top Coat

Neon Tips Re-Do & Prom Nails!

Hey everyone! I have A FEW manis for you today!

We'll start with my neon tip nails. I had done these a really long time ago, loved them, and have been wanting to do them again for a while. So I did, minus the nude polish. I needed something quick and fun, still loved them the second time around. I think I like them better without the nude polish.

I used:
  • Illamasqua: Rare
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

I also did two prom manicures last week. Two of my cousins went. Well three actually but one was a boy...not really into nails, lol.

My cousin Caroline's little nubbins!

My cousin Olivia wanted a purple version of my Valentine's Day Mani!
