Hello everyone! It’s been forever, I know, but I’ve been busy! Among several other things, I’ve since acquired a home shellac set. I got a few colors along with it, and tried to start out with a simple French! It’s a little messy, and definitely a work in progress, but I’ll get better over time.
And as evident in the pictures, my poor pinky nail is finally growing back!
I tried to do some small decorations with a pale pink that I have (the only color so far!) but it didn’t have nearly enough contrast to actually look good. Oh well- excuse enough to go out and buy some more!
Holidays are practically here! I’m getting festive with some of the nail appliqué designs from Sephora!
My pinky nail is the saddest thing ever!! I thought I could mimic the silver base of the stick on design by putting my only silver (Smolder by Revlon) over white, but it mostly turned out a patchy mess. Oh well, you get what you pay for sometimes! Anyway- keep your fingers festive and bright! Even if they are hiding in gloves most of the time.
Halloween is over so that means the holidays are coming! I did a test run of some festive designs.
The gold color is the new Marc Jacobs lacquer that I got along with the lip gloss – it’s absolutely gorgeous!
At Sally I found little nail stickers with a winter theme! GIfts and snowmen and so much more!
The glitter over the red is absolutely stunning – it’s from the new Sephora X line, this color is Voltage
While I really don’t like how short my nails are now (having to start over after acrylics!) hopefully they’ll grow out before too long! What nails do you prefer for the holiday – simple sparkle, or festive designs?
Painted my nails out of schedule so this is something of a bonus post, also to make up for the week where I didn’t post much of anything! Didn’t take many pictures of this since I only had it on for a few days, but I like it alright! The darker brown is one of the Revlon Mooncandy colors and the bronze is Sprung by OPI.
Picture taken on my walk into work! Glad I managed to get at least one good photo
I really enjoy how lighter colors at the base of the nail elongate the fingers- the vertically placed rhinestones really helped the effect as well. Perhaps I’ll use this color duo more when Autumn comes!
