Sinful Colors Cinderella

Sorry I forgot to post on Tuesday… My bad guys…

So today I have a swatch of Sinful Colors Cinderella, a delicate, light, sheer blue with a subtle pink sparkle. It tends to be quite sheer, I ended up using four thin coats of polish until there was no VNL (visible nail line). Anyway I really like this color aside from its sheer quality. I think the baby blue color and pink sparkle is quite unique.

I don’t think this is a great base polish for nail art due to the layers needed to create an opaque base. It might work as a topper over another nail polish, though. I’ll have to experiment later 🙂

Anyway, have a good weekend everyone! I can’t believe it’s summer already, the year has been flying by!

Bubble Illusions

I found my pictures of the nail art I did using Zoya Payton and Blu from last post! Once I found them, I distinctly remember doing this and being really pleased at the end.

I’ve seen this style nail art before, and wanted to try it out, it seemed pretty easy, and I think I succeeded!

This was pretty easy to do. I painted a base coat, and stroked on a different polish along a diagonal. Once that was dry, I spaced out dots of each color, making sure they each overlapped. Zoya Payton was fairly opaque, it tends to be a bit sheer but I was able to build it up easily.

I hope you enjoyed this nail art, and see you Tuesday!

Sephora Formula X High Frequency

Please excuse my cuticles. :/ This is one glorious coat of High Frequency by Sephora Formula X. The color is slightly off, my camera wouldn’t capture it fully – it’s actually a slightly deeper teal. But this polish is very opaque and vivid and a little hard to control. The brush is fairly wide, which I like, but the polish threatened to fill my cuticles. I had to be careful about the application, but the payoff is amazing! The color is really pretty and bright.

Butterflies

These are some butterfly nails I did a while ago. Instead of the usual monarch colors, I used a more blue/purple gradient underneath the black outlines. Using Sally Hansen Lacey Lilac and Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, I created a gradient, added a topcoat, then used black and white acrylic paint to create the wings.

I’ve seen countless nails using this design, so I’m not sure where it originated, but credit to whoever did – It’s a really cute design!

Day 26: Inspired by a Pattern

For this prompt, I decided to copy this arrow pattern I found online. Using a multitude of colors, this took a while, but I was pretty satisfied with the results.

I applied one coat of Zoya Purity, then I made a gradient using Zoya Purity and Zoya Charlotte, with Purity near the base of my nail and Charlotte at the tip. After adding a topcoat, I used striping tape to create the arrow shapes. I added yet another gradient, this time using, from the base of the nail to the tip, Zoya Sia, Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, Revlon Eclectic, and Sinful Colors Let’s Meet. I put on one last topcoat and that’s it! This took a longer time than usual, as I had to (impatiently ) wait for it to dry before adding the tape.

Anyway, that’s it for this post! See you soon!
