Twinsie Tuesday: Sideways French

This Tuesday's theme is Sideways French. I wasn't 100% sure what that was, but I think it got it right :-P

Polishes Used:
-KB Shimmer - Eclipse
-Kiss - Silver Glitter

For this look I simply started with my black base and freehanded on some sideways French with my Kiss Nail Art striper. The look is simple but sort of edgy because of the colors I used; I liked it for something different.

The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents - Tea Party - Look 4

I'm back today with my 4th and final August Tea Party look for the Nail Challenge Collaborative, and I am totally in love with this look!

Polishes Used:
-Morgan Taylor - Ahead of the Game
-Morgan Taylor - New Kicks on the Block
-Morgan Taylor - Funny Business
-Morgan Taylor - Mint Chocolate Chip
-Precision Nail Lacquer - Grape Devine
-Seche - Versatile
-Rica - Whiteout
-Hard Candy - Matte-ly in Love

I love this look! I feel like I finished strong this month. The color seem is cheery and the white dots on the yellow feels very country chic for a tea party. The purple flowers sort of remind me of lilac flowers that may be out at a tea party.

Check out how the other ladies are wrapping up their Tea Parties below!


Subtle French Gradient

Happy Saturday! Early this week the Twinsie Tuesday ladies did a "Classic" themed look; I picked red, but my second choice was French. So today I'm showing you my second Classic look :-P

Polishes Used:
-OPI - My Vampire Is Buff
-OPI - Alpine Snow

I like this look a lot actually! Although it super subtle I think that's part of the fun of it. I have tried a look like this before in pink and white (which you can see here) and I think I like this one just as much as that one. And going through some of my older pictures, I really like my new nail shape a lot better too!


The Nail Challenge Collaborative Presents - Tea Party - Look 3

I'm finally back with my 3rd look for the August Nail Challenge Collaborate Tea Party! For whatever reason I've been feeling overwhelmed this month, with work, weekend trips, etc. and my nails have taken a back seat.

Polish Used:
-OPI - I Think In Pink

Hmmm. To be honest, I'm not in love with this look, however, it's not that bad either. I felt the pink was a really great tea party pink and the bow decals seem very shabby chic, but overall the look is pretty simple and understated.

Let's see how the other girls are ready for the tea party below :)
