Hi! So I have not been posting lately, I am really sorry about that, my school work is too much and it is taking a lot of my time. For today’s manicure I was inspired by a tutorial I saw on youtube. It was by cutenails.  The design is a gradient manicure with roses. I just used two colors for this manicure, a regular black polish and a vibrant purple polish by Fingr’s.

Hi! It has been such a long time since I last posted. I am very sorry about it. The past week was really busy. I will try to get back to posting at least once or twice a week. I know that I also owe a post on different lip products for fall. That will be coming, I cannot say exactly when but it will be before October ends. So today’s post will be about a manicure. This manicure was inspired by @sveta_sanders on instagram. The manicure is a dry water marble. The tutorial can be found on her instagram page. I actually managed to paint my nails on both hands really decently, so today you will see both my right and left hand. Usually I only take pictures of my left hand. I used three colors for this tutorial. My regular white polish from Sally Hansen, a purple polish that I got from a Fing’rs nail art kit, (and that is how they spell it) and a light pink polish from O.P.I called Naturally. I think that the pink polish is part of the Nicole by O.P.I. Selena Gomez Collection.

Hi there! I am sorry again for not posting, I will not finish the 31 day challenge. There are so many things that are going on, but I will still post. One of the new things that I am working on is my photography skills; I am working with a new camera, so I am experimenting with it. It has also come to my attention that I have been collecting nail polish and I have not used them. So for some of the posts they might be polishes that I have not swatched for you. The first manicure I will show you for this month is a swatch of a new polish I had but never used. It is by Rimmel and it is called Rags to Riches. It is a really pretty metallic green, it sort of reminds me of money (hence the name of the polish.)

Thank you for your patience and time!

Hello! This post is for day 22. The manicure for this day has to be inspired by a song. The song I was inspired by was It’s Still the Cross. I really like this song and it has such a powerful meaning.  So for this manicure I went for another simple theme and just used some gold circle studs and white polish. I formed a cross with the gold circle studs on my fourth finger and placed one stud at the base of the nail for my other fingers.

Hello! For day 21 the manicure is supposed to be inspired by a color. I chose purple. I really like this color, I use it on my nails a lot. To display this color, I used it for my french manicure. I have not done one in a while. I also just put some random beads on the side. The polish I used was Sinful Colors- Let’s talk.

Hello! This is the manicure for Day 20. The theme is water marble. I have to admit that my water marble manicures are not very good. It is a nail design I would like to improve on. I really do like how water marble manicures turn out, but it is such a mess for me. Maybe in the future I can do more water marble manicures. I used my regular black and white polishes and a L'Oreal polish in Violet Vixen.

Hello! It is 10:35  in the evening here in New York City; therefore good evening. It is day 19 and the theme is galaxy nails. I am not a big fan of galaxy nails, because it does take awhile to do them, but it is really fun. I do not have much to say today about my nails. I will list the polishes I used below; but first I did want to inform you that the lip posts will be coming back soon, I do want to finish this challenge first then talk about different lipsticks. I will show you different lipsticks for fall, since today is the first day of fall. Please look forward for more lip posts!
This is the list of nail polishes I used:
Sally Hansen-White On
Sally Hansen- Black Out
Sinful Color- Let’s Talk
Revlon- Celestial FX
Sally Hansen- Hi-Def

Hello, Sorry I have been away. I really needed some rest, but I will catch up on this challenge. This post will be for day 18. The theme for day 18 is half moons. I really wanted to do something simple yet appropriate for fall. So, for this manicure I only used one color and it is Essie- Wicked. This color is so pretty for fall; it is a deep cranberry color. I used this color only and a base and top coat, to do the half moon design.

Thank you for stopping by!

Hello! There was a bit of a mix up, yesterday’s post was actually day 17, which was glitter. Day 16 the theme was geometric. So today’s manicure will be for day 16, and the next post that will go up after this will go straight to day 18. Sorry about that mix up. It should be corrected on the post. Today I will show two manicures. The first one is the one I am wearing right now. It is just a simple triangle design just on my ring finger. The second design is a throwback manicure, because it is throwback Thursday. It is a block manicure, I think I might have forgotten to show this manicure. I will list the polishes below.

For the current manicure I used:
Revlon- Minted
Pure Ice- Silver Mercedes
Sally Hansen- Black Out
Sally Hansen- White On
(Quick note, The two Sally Hansen polishes I mentioned are the regular black and white polishes I use for different manicures.)


For the old manicure or the block manicure I used:
Wet n’ Wild- Here Comes Trouble
Sally Hansen-Black Out
Sally Hansen-White On

Hi! It is 11:16 in the evening here in New York! So Good Evening! It is day 17, I am bit behind but I will catch up. For day 17 the theme is glitter. I tried to do a glitter gradient, but it sort of turned out to be a glitter fail. As you will see in the pictures a lot of the glitter was still stuck around the cuticle because I could not get it off. I will look for easier ways to get glitter off and I will try to come back to you about it. I used two Sally Hansen polishes. The first one is Wavy Blue and the second one is Fanta-Sea. Fanta-Sea is the light blue-green polish. Wavy Blue is the very pretty dark blue polish.

If you would like to see a design or maybe even tutorial, after this challenge please leave a comment below. Thank you for stopping by!

Hi! I realize that I do not really write as much as I should and I apologize. I will try my best to write more. So Day 15 is Delicate Print. I really did not know what to do for delicate print. So I went through my nail collection, and I found some nail stickers that I never had the chance to try. For today’s nails I only used one polish and it is Pure Ice- Skinny Dip. It is a really pretty light pink polish. Sorry I do not remember where I got the stickers.

Thank you for reading and stopping by!

Hello, I forgot to greet you yesterday. For day 14- Flowers. September is a busy month for me that is why some of my nail designs are a little simple. I did not have a lot of ideas for flowers; but I do hope you like this one design. I used Sally Hansen- Black Out and Hard Candy- Frenzy. I also did use some rhinestones, from a Sally Hansen nail art kit.

Thank you for stopping by!

I am behind, but I will catch up. Day 12 was stripes and Day 13 was animal print. For day 12 I just used two colors; O.P.I.- Carrie’d Away and Revlon Fashionista. Day 13 I used a regular black and white polish and Revlon-Jelly. I do not know why but my animal print reminds me of a cow, so sorry about that.

This is day 12.

This is day 13.

Hi! It is almost eleven in the evening here, so Good Evening. It is day 11 and the theme is polka dot nails. I really like polka dots as a design for nails, but I do need some practice. The two polishes I used are polishes that I have mentioned in previous post and they are
Revlon- Urban and O.P.I- Carrie’d away. I also placed some random gold studs on top of some of the polka dots.

Hi! I am back on time again! For day 10 the theme is gradient nails. To actually make the gradient, instead of using nail polish and a makeup sponge, I decided to use acrylic paint in two different colors and a fan brush. It is a bit different, but I really like it. If you wish to try it, I suggest applying white polish before you start the gradient to enhance the color.

Thank you very much for stopping by!
