Starry, Starry Nails

Hello there!
I have a new mani on this lovely Sunday evening! I was able to make a trip to my local Sephora this weekend to check out their new nail bar! (Super exciting! :P)  Along with their own Sephora by OPI line, they are now selling Julep, Nails Inc. London, Dior, NARS, Perfect Formula and Illamasqua. I've also heard that they will be carrying Ciate (the brand that Adele was wearing at the Grammy Awards) but my Sephora didn't have it yet.

I decided to pick up two Nails Inc. colors and I am wearing one in this manicure that I have for you today.  It is a beautiful cobalt blue called "Baker Street". I also added two accent nails using Icing "Written In The Stars". I am quite pleased with the end result. :) Just look...
 So pretty! See the little stars in Written In The Stars? So cute!

 Pretty bottle in the sun.
It just glows! :D

 I used one coat of Seche Clear for my base, Two coats of Baker Street and one coat of Seche Vite. 

Indoors, shade. Lovely. ;)

Hope you enjoyed my new mani! I definitely recommend Nails Inc as a brand. This was my first time trying it out and I loved the formula. Baker Street was opaque in two coats and pretty glossy before I even added Seche Vite.

Neons and Neutrals

Neons and neutrals are currently my favorite color combination. It looks so fresh and it doesn't come off as obnoxious as neons sometimes can. This past weekend I did my sister's and my nails in two different neon and neutral color combos.

On my nails I have: OPI My Pointe Exactly (a BEAUTIFUL grey jelly from the NYC Ballet collection) and Julep Hayden (a neon peach)

 Two toned french manis are 10x better than regular a regular french...Just my opinion!

On my sisters nails (the bottom hand): Essie Jazz and China Glaze Flip Flop Fantasy (the perfect neon pink!)

Hope you enjoy our neon and neutrals! I would love to see what you come up with! :D

I'm back with an abstract "Cloud" mani!

I bet you thought I died, didn't you?! Nope. Alive and well....just a busy girl! :)
I hope you all are doing well and enjoying Spring so far! :D
Today I have a mani that I did last week. It's sort of and abstract "cloud" mani. I used Orly "Wild Wisteria", "Essie Braziliant" (which is also on my toes right now! I love it!) and Sinful Colors "Snow Me White". This was my first attempt at the "cloud" and I like it! It actually wasn't that hard...even though it was freehand. No tape involved here! I hope you like it and I will be better about updating on here more often. :)

Hope you all have a very Happy Easter!
