Double V's and Pinks to Please!

Hii!! I'm back again and this time with a girly manicure.

On a normal day I hate pink but for some reason I was feeling it today. So I pulled out my pinks and got to work. 

Products Used:
ORLY Bonder
OPI DS Extravagance
HK Girl Top Coat
Striping Tape

I started with two coats of Pink-A-Boo on all my nails and then went over with a coat of top coat to dry everything quickly.

Once that was dry I taped off two Vs using the striping tape. I filled in the larger V using Dazzling Pink and the smaller V with Exrtavagance. I pulled off the striping tape as I was done filling in each nail and then went over with a final coat of HK Girl.

Sorry the second V isn't that clear. It's only looking blurry now I've uploaded them but hopefully you can still make it out. Anyway I hope you like.

Until next time...

Mosaic Tiles

Hiii! Hope everyone is having a good Sunday!

I was in the mood for a fancy-ish design recently unlike the simple stuff I was feeling the past few weeks so I pulled out some stuff and got to work. I've seen this design on several Instagram pages in past months and figure I'd give it a try.

Products Used:
ORLY Bonder Basecoat
Wet N Wild French White Cream
OPI I Just Can't Cope-acabana
OPI DS Reflection
OPI DS Extravagance
Glisten & Glow HK Girl
Striping Tape
#00 Nail Art Brush
Clean-up Brush

Here's how it went down.

I did one kinda thick coat of French White Cream on my middle and ring fingers and went over with a thin coat of HK Girl. I wanted it to dry quickly so I could apply the striping tape.. Be sure to wait until the base is completely dry before applying the tape. Once that was dry I applied striping tape horizontally and then diagonally in a criss-cross style to create little triangles on the nail. I then filled in each little triangle with DS Reflection, DS Extravagance and Luxe in as random a design as possible. Once all the triangles were done I pulled off the striping tape and went over with a final coat of HK Girl.. 

My other naked nails got two coats of I Just Can't Cope-acabana and everything was then sealed with HK Girl.

Here's the finished product. It reminded me of mosaic tiles hence the name of the post.

Hope you like it. Until next time...

Sweet Getaway

Happy Easter guys!!!

Today's post is just a simple mani to show off a new baby I bought so I'm just going to hop right into it.

Products Used:
Orly Bonder 
HK Girl Top Coat

All I did was two coats of Sweet Getaway on every finger but my ring fingers and two coats of Jiggle Hi Jiggle Lo on my ring fingers. I went over everything with my HK Girl as usual.

Sweet Getaway is a bright neon pink - perfect summer colour.  It's also pink rose scented but smells like granny perfume to me. If you can't handle strong scents I would suggest passing on this one. Scents don't usually bother me but this made me really nauseous, however, it wears off after a day or so.

Hope you like it! Until next time...
