It is starting to get hot here, I thought I would paint my nails more Spring like. This color is on the side of a hot pink and a deep coral. It’s fun and girly and ready for the new season.
For all you instagramers,
When I reach 200 followers I will be having a nail art contest. As soon as I hit 200 followers I will release the details and show the prizes. If you are a fellow instagramer like myself, please follow @polished_me.
I have been dreaming of the beaches in Hawaii. I love Hawaii, it is one of my favorite places to vacation. A couple of years ago my family and I vacationed to Oahu and visited one of the top beaches in America, Lanikai. I miss this beach SO much, it inspired today’s manicure.
I used Zoya Godiva again to recreate the soft white sand of Lanikai. To recreate the ocean I used Orly Royal Navy and OPI He’s My Surfing Instructor using the makeup sponge gradient technique. Orly Royal Navy has more of a thin consistency which allows for a progressive darkness. This is nice to use because you can allow the gradient to start as dark or light as you want. OPI He’s My Surfing Instructor really added the sparkle while helping blend the gradient underneath.
Gosh I really would like to be on that beach right now.
I’ve officially been doing my personal nail challenge for a whole month! I can’t believe it! Now if only I can challenge myself with the gym!!
Day 30 Zoya Pixie Dust Chyna
Zoya pixie dust chyna
Sorry for the übuer blurry picture on the bottom. The whole purpose of the blurry picture was to show the glitter shimmer that you can’t see without the blur. This pixie dust was a little different from Godiva. The glitter in Godiva has small silver glitter, whereas Zoya Chyna has red glitters. The red shimmer is present, even though you can’t tell with this picture, but the sand texture is very obvious in this picture. I absolutely love the color and the shimmer in and of itself. I couldn’t resist a top coat to see what it would look like so I put some seche vite as an accent nail and now more of the shimmer comes out as opposed to the texture. I’m on the fence about this pixie dust. I really really loved the Godiva because of the contrast between the silver glitter and the nude polish, Chyna I think I would absolutely love this color for Christmas! Don’t get me wrong, anytime is a good time for a nice sexy red, but this color really reminds me of Christmas time.
