Today I’m going to introduce you to some pretty microbeads that I found on the Born Pretty website. They are super pretty because of their pearlescent rainbow AB finish and look like tiny bubbles!
Today I have a very interesting and useful tool to show you all. It is a dual ended rhinestone picker and brush pen to help with your nail art designs.
This tool is similar in size to an actual pen and combines two functions: the ability to pick up stones and glitters on one end and a brush on the other to either dust away excess powders or glitters from your nails or help push excess charms back into their container. The shape is easy to hold, and the white and clear hot pink plastic of the handle makes for an attractive addition to your nail art area.
It’s hard to believe that we’re halfway through August already! I have no idea how time has been flying by. To be honest, I did these nails 2 weeks ago but am only just now starting to catch up with my blog.
In any case, I still haven’t been to the beach this summer because I’ve been so busy. The closest I can get to one is through some nail art.
I started by painting my nails with Born Pretty Thermal Gel in color BP-5730. I love thermal polishes for their natural gradient effect and also for their ability to entertain me in different temperature settings! This one looks like a pale periwinkle blue in warm temperatures and a deep royal blue in cold temperatures. It also has the perfect sprinkling of two different sized glitters in the formula which truly makes it look more special.
I applied and cured this polish for about 1 minute and repeated the process for a second coat.
My next step was to create a sandy beach line along the half moon area of my nails. Continue reading
I’ve still been pretty busy these days, but I needed a change from my last manicure, so I went for something that would be quick and easy to put together for this week.
My polish of choice was something that looks stunning on its own: a multichrome polish from Beauty Big Bang. They call this Chameleon Polish 001, and the color is amazingly shifty in a good way! It has forest green tones that border on teal blue and has a dark purple undertone in indirect light.
This polish alone would have been enough for me, but I added some multi-toned rhinestones purchased from AliExpress to make it look even more fetching.
Happy March, everyone! I’ve been meaning to do some unicorn nail art for awhile just for fun, so let’s get on with this magical manicure!
My base color was an indigo wonder from Beauty Bigbang, 009 in their Holo Polish series.
I’ve been feeling lazy about doing freehand stuff lately, so I opted to use plate L045 from Harunouta to assist me with this manicure.
Welcome to the hot days of summer! One of my favorite warm weather color combos is coral and white, so I wanted to do a fun little manicure with that palette.
It’s a very simple manicure, but it screams summertime! If you don’t have the plate, you can opt to handpaint the lines with a striping brush or use some striping tape. I’m sure the results will look just as fabulous.
After so many fun hand painted manicures, I felt like stamping something elegant. I was still pretty strapped for time, so after my last manicure peeled off unexpectedly, I needed to whip something together in a hurry.
The ironic thing is that this Ators polish is water based and a peel off polish, so this design also started falling off in under 2 days!
I should have just used a regular purple polish, but it’s onto the next mani for me!
