My Little Pony Polishes!

Hi, everyone! It’s already the end of the week and this is only my second post. I got home from Virginia on Wednesday. My nugget and I had a great time! We went with my BFF and her family to Jamestown and the Outer Banks in North Carolina. My son had a good time actually socializing with other kids. He cried terribly as we were leaving home. A few days in VA and he was asking if we could stay longer! Today I’m goin to the beach in New Jersey, so next I’ll have some beach nails to show you!

So as you may remember in my last post, I did beachy nails for my trip, but they ended up popping off. So this is the mani I did for my trip at the last minute.

For this, I started with two coats of Sugar Cube by Salon Perfect. I then did 2 coats of Equestria Games, which is a lemon yellow, green-leaning crelly with pink shimmer. Over top of that, I did one coat of Crystal Empire which is a topper with pink shimmer and iridescent glitter. It was really hard to capture the overall effect of these. My son and I stopped in BK to grab something to eat and my nails were much admired there.

I was really satisfied with the look of this mani. It was really pretty and eye catching. I’m just bummed I couldn’t get a truly accurate photo of it.

Well, it’s good to be home and back at the grind here.

Thanks for visiting the blog today!

 

Pearl Jammin’ with Beach Nail Art!

Hello, everyone! It’s the start of a new week and I am still in Virginia visiting my BFF and her family, so I got this post ready to go ahead of time!

Today I have some beach nail art to show you. Beach theme is my favorite kind of nail art to do because there are so many options! Today’s art is shown over China Glaze’s Pearl Jammin’.

So for this I used 3 coats of Pearl Jammin’. Flooded my cuticles a bit, but it didn’t surprise me. I’ve been spoiled by the amazing formulae of indie polishes. The color is so beautiful, though, that it’s worth the hassle. Now, because I was about to go to Virginia, I wanted my nails to last the whole time- approximately 6 days. I decided to try doing a gel mani. I did a gel base coat, gel topcoat, added doodads, then did another top coat of gel. The next day, my entire left thumb had popped off the nail. I was so ticked.

I ended up peeling the whole thing off. What a major dud this turned out to be. womp womp. I should have just stuck to regular base and top coat! I ended up doing another mani the night this one went bust. I’ll be showing you all that later in the week.

Thanks for stopping by!
