Gold Stripe Nails

Hiii!! I have a simple fall mani for you! Even though I used a summer collection color…

For some reason lately, "Just Lanai-ing Around" from OPI's Hawaii collection has been calling my name. I was tempted to just wear it plain, but I just can't do that. I added a simple gold stripe down the middle of each nail. Easy, and perfect for fall!

  • Essie: Good As Gold
  • Seche Vite: Dry Fast Top Coat

Born Pretty Store Round Sequins

Holy polka dots guys. These are kind of silly nails. I got these fun multi colored round sequin dots from Born Pretty Store and I kind of just went to town with the dots theme. Too many dots? Nah.

I did a white background for the sequin nails and put all different colored dots on it. Then added white dots on top of four polishes I had that were close to the sequin colors.

Blue Marble Chevron Nails

I have a Born Pretty Store review for you today! I got some "Tip Guides" from them, which are stickers basically to help you do french tips for example. I got a whole bunch of them for traditional french tips, chevron nails, half moons and some other crazy shapes!

For my nails today I wanted to use one of the big chevron stickers to do a negative space accent nail. I used the sticker in the middle, and used glitter on one side, then a few colors marbled together on the other side. Peeled it off while the nail was still wet and success! Then I went back in to outline the shape with some gold.

Bright Striped Nails For My 3rd Blogiversary!

HEY GUYS! IT'S MY BLOGIVERSARY TODAY!!

I cannot believe I've had this blog for three years now! I don't know if you noticed, but I've changed up the look a bit. I was getting sick of the polka dots. What do you think? New and fresh for a new year of blogging? I think so. I still need to fix my Tumblr a bit but, it's getting there.

So I bought a few new polishes the other day and they were all sitting around in a group on my table (gossiping or something) and I loved the way they looked together. So I decided to do a simple striped mani with them all, and added in some purple and gold. I really should have done a mani to match my new blog design but oh welll. Maybe next time?
