Twinsie Tuesday: Interlocking Design

As you know, yesterday my husband had his birthday and we went to the amusement park; it was high 60's low 70's for the temp and cloudy; the park wasn't too crowded and hardly had to wait in any lines, with the exception of one 10 minute shower, it was great!

So onto the look; this week's theme is Interlocking Design. I took a little creative freedom with this one, I'm sure if it's technically "interlocking" but it's close enough! It was inspired by @lilmissnails_ on Instagram, who was inspired by @nailedthepolish.





Polished Used:
-Seche - Keep It You
-Seche - Conquer The World
-Hard Candy - Matte-ly In Love

I love how simple this look was to create, and the colors sort of remind of watermelons or something. I think it may sort of qualify for interlocking right? The only thing that I didn't like was that I ended up putting a matte topcoat on it; also I waited what felt like 20 minutes and it still smudged up when I applied it.

I can't wait to see what the other ladies have come up with!

Salon Perfect: Neon Pop Collection Swatches & Revew - Part 3

Happy Monday! Before we get into the look, today is my husbands birthday (HBD Rob!), we are taking the day off of work to go to the local amusement park - so hopefully the weather holds out!

With this look I am wrapping up the review of the Salon Perfect Neon Pop Collection polishes that I received.

Left to Right: Plum Sorbet, Bermuda Baby, Flamingo Flair

Instead of some straight up swatches I decided to do a splatter mani to show them off!

I'm loving this look! The white is Salon Perfect Sugar Cube and once I "splattered" on the neons I topped off this look with Salon Perfect Crystal Clear. I didn't want to take this off when I did but I had other looks to do, so I only kept it on for a couple of hours. I will probably re-do it at sometime. Also, I love the purplish shade that the blue over the pink creates!

These polishes are currently available at Wal-Mart, retailing for $3.98/each.

What do you think? Are you loving this look as much as I am?

Incoco Real Nail Polish Appliques - Bonfire Nights

Last week I showed you one of the appliques from the Incoco Tribal Beats Collection, and today I'm sharing with you another awesome pattern, Bonfire Nights.

Bonfire Nights: The rich colors in this tribal design create a welcoming, but confident look.




This look is the same color palette as the Desert Sunset pattern but the design almost has a "sweater/tribal" feel; is that a thing? It is now! I love how detailed  these strips are; it makes me look like a nail art pro!

Salon Perfect: Neon Pop Collection Swatches & Revew - Part 2

Today I am back with 3 more Neon Pop Collection polishes from Salon Perfect:


L to R: Haute Pink, Loopy Lime, Tickled Pink
For today's look, I put all three colors together into one bright mani:


Lightbox with Nikon Camera; with Flash


Lightbox with iphone Camera; no flash

Outdoors with iphone Camera; no flash
I am wearing two coats of the Sugar Cube white polish base, two coats of the neons and a final "Crystal Clear" topcoat. I tried to capture the "neon-ness" of the colors but taking pictures in a couple different lights. It is so crazy how some of the color (I'm looking at you Haute Pink) with different lights - it always seems to be the brightest neons that are the hardest to capture.

Which of these shades is your favorite?
