*I did touch up these photos around my middle finger’s cuticle. I had a slightly red and swollen part because of a hangnail.*
This is kind of reminiscent of summer, I miss it already!!!!! So I have some basic palm tree nail art. I used Wet n Wild Putting on Airs, Zoya Mosheen on my thumb, pointer and pinkie fingers, and some white acrylic paint. It took a couple of tries for my palm tree on my ring finger; I kept wiping off the paint with a damp paper towel- why I love acrylic paint.
Here is more freehand nail art! So I have some random triangles on my pointer finger, a stair design on my middle finger, a v French on my ring, and a v pattern on my pinkie. Pretty simple. Sadly, my topcoat smeared my middle and ring nails. I used Orly sec n dry which does dry amazingly fast but has a tendency to smear unless you use a nice thick coat.
So for day two, I went with a baseball theme- I know a few hardcore Oriole fans. I used Revlon Siren and Sinful Colors Black on Black for the color blocked nails and Sinful Colors Snow Me White and Zoya Livingston for the baseballs.
For this nail art, I started with a base of Zoya Livingston. Then I laid down my tape and made a gradient using Singul Colors Snow Me White. For some reason I ended up with a ton of bubbles on my middle and ring fingers, I’m not sure why. Anyway, this mani didn’t even last 24 hours because of the bubbles.
Hey everyone, just a quick post for today. These were some super quick nails I did. I started with three thin coats of Zoya Lillian and added a coat of Stars at Night by NOPI. I added a matte topcoat from Forever 21(more on that). I later decided I wanted to do some nail art. So using white acrylic paint I made these “stairs” if you will. Finally I added another layer of matte topcoat.
So I picked up this matte topcoat for a little more than two dollars for .5 ounces. I was skeptical about the product until I tried it. It works pretty well. It is definitely matte, as you can see. It is streaky unless you load the brush with the polish. Despite using a thick coat, it dried in around two minutes. My nails were set in about 30-45 minutes. I went to bed after doing my nails about a half hour later and I had NO sheet marks. I’m pretty impressed with this, it’s not great, but it does work well for a cheap price.
