A week of simple nails

Ah, the joys of being sick and moving. No time and no interest in doing proper nail art! Luckily I’ve more than enough polishes that are screaming to be tried, so this week’s all about random colours I love on their own.

Left is Nicole by OPI ‘Luke of the Draw’ from the Modern Family series. I used 3 coats of it, and I just loved the final look and how it lasted over 5 days! Awesomesauce.

To the right, what I’m wearing today is Sinful Colors ‘Dancing Nails’. I haven’t been using SC for long, but so far I’ve been quite satisfied with their colours and how good it goes on. This metallic rose is no exception, it looks great and is definitely good enough to wear on its own. So if you got 2 dollars to spare, then you’ve no excuse for not making your nails pretty!

I’ll be busy for at least another week, so my next posts will feature more of my fave single colours!

Today’s nails: if there’s no rainbow in the sky, paint them on instead!

So I was behind a bit on nail designs lately…what’s better to catch up than just using 5 different colours?

This design is so Nail Dummy proof, all you need is enough bold shades of polish and, if you’d follow exactly what I did, a couple of cute starry studs.

I chose mostly cheaper colours – all together this costs less than one bottle of fancy polish, which means you have no excuse for not buying them!

The blue is a favourite of mine, Sinful Colors’ Sinful Shine ‘Endless Blue’. Next up, the yellow by Essence, ‘Little Miss Sunshine’. My middle fingers are painted with Catrice ‘I’m not a greenager’. Followed by the cheapest but arguably the best colour red, Wet ‘n’ Wild ‘I red a good book’. Last but certainly not least, the orange. It’s by an awesome natural polish brand called Piggy Paint. Not only non-toxic and kid friendly, it’s also just great stuff to paint on! It’s targeted towards mothers to get for their young girls, which is great but I’m still 12 inside so I can use it as well 😉 The orange I used here’s called ‘Mac-n-cheese please’.

To finish it off, I stuck on the starry studs completely random while the polish was still wet, to make it ultra playful. Some top coat over it, and done are these happy hands! 🙂

Today’s nails: kobalt blue and stars

(photo note: my cuticles were kind of ruined last week at a nail salon…) Today, before I read the comments of my previous entry, I decided to try 2 of my new polishes from the USA: Sinful Colors’ SinfulShine ‘Endless Blue’ and Fergie by Wet n Wild ‘Hollywood Walk of Fame’.

The (very pretty) kobalt blue is so pigmented that I only needed 1 coat. Love it!

The glitters were slightly harder: this is one of those glitters you expect to pop, but in actual fact you need to be lucky to find 2 stars on your brush, rest being regular top coat. The stars and glitter are really pretty though, so I took an orange/cuticle stick, dipped the brush in the bottle a few times, removed any stars with the stick and set them aside. After putting 1 coat of the glitter on each nail, I simply added the kept away stars to any nail that had too little.

There you go! Next up, trying out the fuzzy polish..
