Winter Floral Manicure

Welcome to March! I needed a little pick me up after having such a horrible February, so I came up with this glittery floral manicure. Hope you enjoy it!

I started by painting my nails with 2 coats of 127 Rosa Multiflora from Aimeili. This gel polish has a ton of pink foil flake glitter suspended in a pink jelly base. It’s super shiny and dazzling and would fit in perfectly at a disco.

2 coats of 127 Rosa Multiflora from Aimeili were applied with each coat cured for 60 seconds in a 36W UV/LED lamp.

Fall at Sunset in the Park Nail Art

Oh, fall. It’s the perfect time to bring out all those toasty, golden colors that match the leaves outside. While most of the leaves are still green in NYC, I decided to get a jump start on the season with my nails.

For my base, I used a shimmery lemon shade from Julep called Nadia.

2 coats of Nadia by Julep were applied for this swatch.

To create fall vibes, I used a fan brush to streak Pam from Julep (holographic orange) and Charge It! from Sephora by OPI (gold) across my nails. I used a slightly wavy motion to get a wind swept effect.

Frosted Leaves Winter/Spring Manicure

Hi, everyone! Who else is sick of the weird weather patterns lately? NYC just got dumped with a load of snow on the 2nd day of spring, so I came up with a little snow day manicure with my day off.

I picked a pretty pastel blue-gray color from Julep called Zoey. It’s great for spring, but it shares the cool tones of winter.

Spring usually conjures up images of flowers and buds so I chose a pretty leaf design from plate BM-702 from Bundle Monster for this manicure.

Holographic Snowflake Nails

We just had a crazy snowstorm in NYC thanks to a second Nor’easter that came through the area. While the snowfall in the city wasn’t too bad, the driving conditions were absolutely miserable! I got caught in the middle of it in Long Island at a time when the snowfall was at its heaviest, and I can honestly say that I’ve never been so scared to drive in my life. The heavy snowfall and unplowed roads caused my anxiety level to skyrocket, especially after seeing other drivers lose control of their cars.

In any case, you’re here to see nail art, and snow can be really pretty and inspiring in other situations, so here’s a classy look to reflect that.

I started by painting my nails black with Johnny from Julep.

2 coats of black polish serve as a base for this manicure.

The snowflakes are from a nail foil design from Born Pretty Store, item 22930 on their website. It’s so pretty that I would wallpaper my apartment with it if I could! Use code RSSPX31 to save 10% off the regular priced items in your order there, and get free shipping as well!

The snowflakes are holographic, and even the black background has a hint of sparkle to it.
