Tami Nail Polish: Lady of Lomond - Swatches and Review

Hello! Today I have another polish from Tami to show you. I showed you the gorgeous Skibo Sunset a few weeks ago and today I have Lady of Lomond. I meant to show you this one sooner but I had to re-swatch a couple of times because I wasn't happy with my photos. So, here it is to brighten up your Tuesday!

Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns - Day 4: Friday the 13th!

Hello again! We finally made it to the weekend! I have (obviously) fallen behind in Digit-al Dozen Week but I am going to play catch up! Since today is Friday the 13th I thought it would be fun to do some spooky-themed nail art. Don't worry, it's not too scary! ;)

Darling Diva Polish: St. Patrick's Day Collection - Swatches and Review

Happy Friday the 13th! I have a brand new collection from Darling Diva Polish to share with you tonight! This launches tonight at 7 PM CST! I have to apologize because, while I swatched the complete collection, apparently my SD card ate about 50 of my photos so I am missing photos of two of the polishes (except for one that was left of one of them matte). More about that in the post!

Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns - Day 3: Valentine's Pond with a Twist

We made it through the halfway point in the work week! We are getting close to another weekend! If you've been following me awhile you know I'm not a fan of Valentine's Day. But I thought I'd go ahead and do one look for Valentine's Day this week. I've been wanting to do this mani for awhile and this was the perfect opportunity!

Digit-al Dozen Does Patterns on Patterns - Day 2: Floral Garden

Hello! I'm back for Day 2 of Digit-al Dozen Patterns on Patterns Week! I went pretty far out of my comfort zone on this one and I'm still not quite sure how I feel about the finished look.

Digit-al Dozen Does Pattern on Pattern - Day 1: Sketchy Gradient

Hello! Digit-al Dozen Week is back! And, of course, I'm off to a late start! This week's theme is "pattern on pattern," which is proving quite challenging. But it's also producing some gorgeous manis from my fellow Digit-al Dozen-ers. This is the second mani I did for today. I hated the way the first one turned out so I went in a completely different direction and I really love the end result!

13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge: Something You've Never Done Before (A Few Days Late!)

Good evening! Who else is thrilled that another Monday is over with? I know I'm not the only one! (I would really hate to be Monday though. How sad must Monday be? No wonder it hates us back!) Anyway, I have a post for you today that I should have posted Friday, but the last few days have been crazy so here it is.

The final prompt in the 13 Days of January Nail Art Challenge is "something you've never done before." Well, I had never done a negative space mani before because I'm not a huge fan of them. I like a few that I have seen but mostly they aren't my thing. Plus my nails are pretty stained so the only space I felt comfortable "exposing" my nails was at the base. I'm also not typically a fan of half moon manis on myself (though I do love them on other people), but I figured I'd give them another shot.

I apologize for the quality of the photo (phone pic). I didn't intend on leaving them like this and just snapped this pic quickly to show a friend. I freehanded the half moons and I am pretty proud of how those turned out! I did attempt to add some art on top but it just didn't turn out well so I decided to stick with these instead. Sometimes clean and simple is the best! And I actually enjoyed wearing these. Half moons and negative space - I sure didn't expect to like it but I ended up wearing them all weekend. The red I used is SinfulSHINE Devious. 

I hope you enjoyed this nail art challenge, even if I did post late for most of it! LOL

Thanks for reading and happy polishing!
