Love and Roses Manicure

As you might have guessed, I own quite an extensive collection of nail polish, and I’ve only actually used maybe half of the colors that I own! It may seem shocking, but I admit to splurging on way more polish that I could ever wear in a lifetime.

Today’s feature is the color grace from Picture Polish. This gorgeous light pink crelly with fine holographic glitter paints like a dream and makes me wish that I owned more polishes from this company! Two coats gave me a perfectly opaque finish despite the light color, and I still can’t get over the beautiful shimmery effect.

Spring Lily Nails

For this lily manicure, I started by painting my nails a lovely sky blue color using polish from Aimeili. This color is 113 Strongylodon Macrobotrys, and I used 3 coats cured at 60 seconds per coat to achieve the nice opaque creme color you see here.
