China Glaze Swanky Silk

Hi Everyone!

Today I have a nail art look using China Glaze Swanky Silk which is a beautiful rose gold.

This mani was fairly simple; I used China Glaze Swanky Silk on each finger and China Glaze Razzle Me, Dazzle Me on my middle finger. I absolutely love this glitter! It's so unique and creates a cool look on the nail. For my black polish I used Sally Hansen Midnight in NY and striping tape to create the striped looks.

On my pinkie I have the 2mm gold square studs from the Born Pretty Store. I absolutely love these little studs and they are perfect for all kinds of nail art. If you haven't shopped here yet, I highly recommend it. They have tons of nail items at a great price. They were also generous enough to give my readers a 10% off coupon code.

Blue Nail Art

Hi Lovelies!
I was inspired to do a blue mani due to all the recent Spring rain we've been having here in Texas! Also, it happens to be Autism awareness month, so I've been seeing a lot of blue nails for Autism out there and thought I'd do one too!

Colors used were: Zoya Jo (medium blue), China Glaze Midnight Mission (dark blue), Essie Borrowed and Blue (light blue), and OPI Last Friday Night (glitter).
I really wanted to do a mix of designs here, so I thought ombre, striping, fishtail, and a glitter gradient would be fun! I have to say this is one of my favorite manis to date.

Let me know if anyone is interested in a post on a tutorial for any of the above techniques. I know there are probably a million out there already, but I'd be happy to post how I do it.

Easter Nails

Hi Everyone!
I know this is a day late, but I just had to share. Below are my nails I did for Easter.
I just loved how these turned out!

Colors used were Essie Neo Whimsical, Zoya Blu with Deborah Lippmann's Glitter in the Air on top, China Glaze Lemon Fizz, and Zoya Neely. I used a doting tool for the flowers, dots, and part of the chick.
