Gray

Sheer Plaid Nails

I saw a manicure on Pinterest the other day and wanted to try it out, but with different colors. The colors I picked were a bit sheer, and it ended up creating a sort of plaid look. Super cool!

Polishes Used:
Essie Chinchilly
Essie Watermelon
Essie Resort Fling
Seche Vite Top Coat

I created this manicure by first painting my nails with the gray color (Chinchilly), appying a top coat, and letting it dry completely. Then I used scotch tape and masked off a portion of the nail so that I could paint the lighter coral color (Resort Fling). I made sure to do one nail at a time and remove the tape immediately after painting the coral color. Then I applied a thin top coat and let it dry. Finally, I taped off the other side of the nail, painted the magenta color (Watermelon), and peeled off the tape immediately. Then I finished the nail art design with a clear top coat. :)

Three-Color Nail Stamping Manicure

Having fun with more nail stamping. :) This time I tried stamping with three colors all at once…

Stamping Colors: Konad Special Polish Yellow, Sally Hansen Insta-Dri Mint Sprint & Brisk Blue
Stamping Plate: Cheeky CH6
Top Coat: Seche Vite

Oops! You can see some stray Mannie fur in these photos. I suppose I should have waited until after taking pictures to scratch his ears. ;)

Nicole My Empire… My Rules

Another polish from the Kardashian Kolor collection by Nicole by OPI. I love this muddy wet-cement color. It’s neutral (sort of grayish-brown), but darker than the lighter grays I’ve worn. Application was a dream. I love the formula of the Nicole polishes. So smooth and creamy. :)

Nfu Oh 61 + Some Color Club Revvvolution Stamping

Started out with Nfu Oh 61 on bare nails. It seriously is the most amazing holo polish. Some say that the most current batches of 61 aren’t as holographic as the original, but since I don’t have the original, I wouldn’t know the difference. :)

Nfu Oh 61 photos taken without a topcoat. Then I added some stamping with Color Club Revvvolution, another amazing polish. It’s not nearly as holographic as Nfu Oh 61, but it’s pretty amazing in it’s own right. I finished it off with a topcoat (which did diminish the holographic effect on 61).

Base Color: Nfu Oh 61
Stamping Color: Color Club Revvvolution
Stamping Plate: Konad m57
