Nude gradient nails!

Today's look was inspired by @mrswhite8907 and features a nude to white gradient and some simple stamping on the accent nail. Colors used to achieve this look were FingerPaints Whatta Dish, Sinful Colors Snow Me White, and the gradient nails are topped with China Glaze Fairy Dust. I love how elegant this turned out.

Drag Art!

Yesterday's mani was inspired by ohmygoshpolish. The technique used was dragging with a toothpick or simply, drag art. Colors used to achieve this look were Ciatè London Candy Floss, Zoya Lux, Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear White On, and Sallh Hansen Complete Manicure Coat Of Arms. This look wasn't as easy as I thought it was going to be. There's a real learning curve for this particular nail art.

Ninjas in love!

Today's look features two very lovey dovey ninjas. My husband always asks me to do a ninja mani and I've just never gotten around to it. Today is the day! 

To achieve this look I used Pop Beauty Radiant Ruby, Zoya Cosmo, and Sinful Colors Black On Black. I topped with Out the Door by INM Nails. The ninjas are from Cici&Sisi plate #4. 

If you're looking to try a new polish brand or you want a rich ruby color like this, Pop Beauty Radiant Ruby definitely delivers. I am excited to try more from them!

Navy matte dotticure - first blog post!

My first blog post features this matted navy dotticure. I am recently obsessed with mattifying all the nails! The colors I used to achieve this look are Zoya Sailor (index and middle and as the dots on the accent nail), OPI Moon Over Mumbai (ring), and OPI Liquid Sand Solitaire (pinkie). I topped with NYC Matte Me Crazy. 

With fall fast approaching, I plan to use a matte top coat a lot! What do you think of this look?
