Candy Canes

These candy cane nails are a simple but fun Christmas nail art manicure.  For this manicure I used two coats of Zoya Purity as my base, then stamped the candy cane image from MoYou London's Festive Collection plate 03 on top using Mundo de Unas 32 Reddish.

Pour Me Another Cup

If your Monday is anything like mine, it's starting with a very large cup of coffee.  Or if your weekend was anything like mine, it was spent getting caught up on the lives of the residents in Star's Hollow with the new Gilmore Girls.  In any event, coffee is life and should be celebrated with coffee themed nail art.

For this manicure I used Zoya Emilia and stamped coffee images from MoYou London's The Cookbook Collection plate 04 using Mundo de Unas 19 Bronze.

Holidays Lights

Happy flashback Friday!  This is a manicure from two years ago which I never shared here on the blog.  For this manicure I used OPI My Vampire is Buff as my base, stamped the light image from MoYou London plate Festive Collection - 03, then filled in the lights using Zoya Chita, Zoya Carter, and Zoya Sunshine.

Gobble Gobble!

Happy Thanksgiving!  This year the only turkey I made are the ones on my nails.  I followed a design from Painted Polish by Lexi and I'm pretty happy with how my turkeys turned out.  For this manicure I used the following colors: Zoya Emilia, Zoya Chanelle, Zoya Sookie, Zoya Purity, OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana, OPI Where Did Suzi's Man-Go?, SoFlaJo Freaky & Fabulous, and Sally Hansen Black Out.

Fall Matte Gradient

Gradients make for easy fall nail art.  For this manicure I used Zoya Savita, Zoya Harlow, and OPI Love.Angel.Music.Baby.  I didn't use a top coat, allowing all these colors to remain in their normal matte finish.

Classic Fall

I love how easy mixing two colors together in one manicure is for creating different looks, especially mixing different shades for fall.  This is OPI Stay off the Lawn!! and Zoya Tomoko.  I was really impressed by how beautiful the formula was on Stay off the Lawn!! - I didn't even have tip wear when I removed the polish after three days.

Jewel Tones

I love this manicure!  Nail vinyls make gorgeous manicures so easy and these quatrefoil vinyls from Vibrant Vinyls are my favorite.

For this manicure I used OPI Fly and KBShimmer Dressed to Gild.

OPI Alcatraz...Rocks (Again)

I've been shopping my collection for colors to wear instead of buying the latest collections and this means rediscovering fall colors I love but haven't worn in a while. This is OPI's Alcatraz...Rocks from their 2013 San Francisco collection.  I swatched this color when I first bought it but it's such a pretty color that it deserves another post.

OPI The "It" Color

I've been shopping my collection for colors to wear instead of buying the latest collections and this means rediscovering fall colors I love but haven't worn in a while.  This is three coats of OPI The "It" Color.  It was mostly opaque after one coat but I had some streaking on a nail and ended up using three.

Additionally, I wore this color while bouldering and it had amazing chip resistance.

Election Day, 2016

Freehand nail art is hard.  Deciding who to vote for in this election is decidedly less so.  

Colors used: Zoya America, Zoya Purity, Zoya Sia, and Zoya Robyn.

Parrot Polish Arauna

I bought my first thermal earlier this month and if you don't already own some you really need to get on that!  Thermal polishes are so much fun.

Walk into a meeting: "Is it cold in here?"  "Indeed, my polish has changed to the cold setting."

"Let me check the water temperature."  Puts hand in water. "Yup, water temperature is warm!"

Why are thermal polishes so much fun?  Let me show you with Parrot Polish Arauna:

Isn't that cool?!

Here are all the photos in order from warm to cold.
