Bright Triangle Nails!

Wooop! Posting within a week! Go meeee!
(Whatever, I'm proud of myself)

So it's Monday! Which is lame, but maybe these nails will make it better! I was so happy with the way these came out. I had it in my head but was afraid it was going to go badly. Instead, I loved them!

I started by thinning out some white polish and making a light outline of the stripes. Then I filled in all the tiny triangles, and went over the lines with white polish and a striping brush.

Blue/Gray Striped Nails!

Hey everyone!

It's been too long. I know I have the same amount of hours in a day as Beyonce, but it just doesn't feel like it. How do you do it Bey?

Anyways, today I have some easy stripes. I had something else in mind for this, but when I tried it out on my pinkie I decided I didn't like it. So I just striped it. I like how simple and modern this turned out.

Matte Ombre Nails!

Hey! Just a quick post tonight.

I wasn't sure if I should post these but I do like them. This thingy got stuck in my nail and I didn't notice until later and I bumped my middle finger multiple times. It's just a simple gradient into a pale nude with some matte top coat.

Fall Stripe Nails

Heyyyy!

I have some simple fall-ish nails for you tonight. I used some OPI Brazil colors I hadn't used yet and did a simple stripe mani with a gold glitter accent nail. Reminded of back to school. Probably because maroon & gray were my high school colors, buuutttt that was an accident.

Matte Tribal Nails!

Hey! I'm so behind on my blogging lately! I'm so sorry!! My routine has been all out of wack, and the Lung Cancer 5K Free To Breathe my amazing Best Friend organizes was this past weekend so I've been super busy and my nails were naked for far too long! I even missed my second Blogiversary! Oh wellll.

So with that, here is an end of summer bright tribal mani! So I called this "Matte Tribal Nails" but I have the shiny version to show you too. In the shiny ones my cuticles aren't looking too hot, but then when I did the matte top coat a little flakie white piece of polish decided to hang out on the tip of my ring finger and I didn't notice till it was too late. Wah.
