Twinsie Tuesday: Inspired by Nature

This week's Twinsie Tuesday theme is Inspired by Nature. I wasn't 100% sure what to do for this theme, I had a couple ideas but nothing I was in love with, so I turned to the internet, and found this picture:

I liked how misty this nature scene was and the pink was definitely calling my name, so here is my look!




Polishes Used:
-OPI - My Boyfriend Scales Walls
-OPI - Don't Pretzel My Buttons
-OPI - Alpine Snow
-Acrylic Paints

My nails are for sure not an exact re-creation of the photo, but more of an "inspired by". For the most part I like how these turned out but there are some things I would change if I ever re-created them. I think for the most part that I need a thinner brush. The brush that I used for this look is the thinnest that I have and sometimes it still seems too thick.

Overally, I'm happy with this look and I hope you can all see my inspiration; make sure to see the other ladies "Inspired by Nature" looks:

Incoco Real Nail Polish Appliques - Desert Sunset

Incoco recently launched their Tribal Beats Collection for summer, and today I will be sharing with you the Desert Sunset pattern.

Desert Sunset: Drive into the sunset with this mix and match tribal nail design with a crème finish.




This was my first time using the appliques since I rounded off my nails; I know it sounds silly but I was worried that for some reason I wouldn't be able to apply the appliques as well, but I don't know what I was thinking, these were just as easy to apply as always. You know I love the Incoco appliques because they are made out of real nail polish.

I thought that this pattern was very on trend since Tribal prints are still really popular, my husband said it sort of reminded him of Easter egg patterns. LOL. Anyway, I really liked these and can't wait to share with you some of the other patterned appliques from the Tribal Beats Collection.

Salon Perfect: Neon Pop Collection Swatches & Revew - Part 1

Happy Sunday lovelies! I was recently sent 9 of the new 12 Neon Pop Collection shades and today I will be sharing with you 3 of those colors.

L to R: Yowza Yellow, Traffic Cone and Fired Up Fuchsia

This collection also comes with a white "base" coat to make the neons pop called "Sugar Cube" and a clear top coat to give them a shiny look to give you options (as they dry to natural matte finish), called "Crystal Clear".

For this post I have a couple different camera / lighting set-ups to try to capture all the neon goodness of these shades.


Yowza Yellow: A Highlighter Yellow

Traditional Lighting Set Up (Nikon Camera & Lightbox)
This is definitely a "highlighter yellow" as described, and I love that they named it YOWZA yellow, lol. It really matches perfectly with how crazy and bright this color is. I am wearing one coat of color, over two coats of the base with topcoat.

Traffic Cone: A Neon Orange

Traditional Lighting Set Up (Nikon Camera & Lightbox)
This shade was the hardest of the shades that I am sharing today to capture on camera. It really is just a super bright neon orange. I am wearing one coat of color, over two coats of the base topped with topcoat.

Fired Up Fuchsia: A Flashy Fuchsia Shimmer

Traditional Lighting Set Up (Nikon Camera & Lightbox)
In these first two pictures, the shimmer is really prominent, I would say it's silvery blue shimmer, which always looks awesome with these bright Fuchsia colors. I am wearing two coats of base, one coat of color and topcoat.

So there you have it, the first 3 shades of the collection. I will be sharing with you the other 6 that I was sent in the next couple of days so keep an eye out.

Out of these three, which was your favorite?




These shades launched in July as part of a limited edition promotion between Salon Perfect and Walmart. Individual shades retail for $3.98.
