Patriotic Nails

I know, I know, I'm a day late!  I was on Pinterest last week looking for some inspiration for my toes and found this pin which I had seen before but somehow hadn't pinned.  At any rate, I used the inspiration for my toes.  I did some much simpler designs for my nails through the week and decided to match the toes for the weekend.  I really wanted to find the source of the image and give proper credit but even an image search was not helpful.  So just know these are not my original design and if you know who I should give credit to, let me know in the comments!


For these I used Sally Hansen Pacific Blue (original), OPI Over and Over A-Gwen, and Zoya Snow White.  The anchor is one of my own vinyl decals made smaller to fit the design and all topped with 
Glisten & Glow HK Girl topcoat.  These were really quite easy to do, so much so that I may use the design and use other colors...I'm thinking mint and navy with pale gray....

I am feeling rather generous this weekend (three day weekend, how could I not?!) so I decided to choose three winners rather than just one!  They have been contacted via email, I will give each a couple of days to respond, if I don't hear from someone, I will choose another winner in their place.  Thank you all for your entries and support and congrats to the winners!

Custom Monogram Nails - with GIVEAWAY!!

If you follow me on Facebook you know I have had a new project in the works for a while. It has taken me a bit longer to get up and running than I initially planned but I am pleased to let you all know I have opened my own Etsy shop selling custom nail vinyls!  I am starting out with a few listings and will be adding more as time goes on so be sure to check in regularly and see what I have to offer!
I wanted to start with my favorites, the custom monograms.  For these, I started out using some of my single skinny chevrons

Then went back and added the monograms.  These are available in a variety of colors, shown here in mint.

To celebrate the grand opening of my store, I will be hosting a giveaway here on my blog as well as on some others down the line.  Check out the details below for how to enter, good luck!

Looking Brighter

Sorry I've been gone for a while guys, just sort of lost my way for a while.  Life was getting complicated and some adjustments had to be made but it seems to be looking brighter now.  I've been able to get back into the swing of things and hopefully will be able to post regularly again which I am excited about!  For today I have a bright look featuring China Glaze Flying Dragon and Aqua Baby. I love the way these two look together!

Added blue tips and matte topcoat.  Which look is your favorite?

Zoya Tiana Swatch and Review

Tiana is from the new Spring collection by Zoya, Delight.  I restrained myself this time and didn't order the entire collection, though I may end up with the remaining 3 when all is said and done. Tiana is a gorgeous minty green cream shade perfect for a subtle nod to St. Patrick's Day without going all out or adding any art.  Simple, crisp and screams of spring!  Two simple coats, topped with HK Girl as usual.

St. Paddy's Day Dotticure

Kind of in love with how this one turned out.  This wasn't exactly what I had in my head when jotting down ideas but once I started this is what happened and I am pleased with the result. Base is Zoya Snow White with dots in Starbord from China Glaze and Zoya Jancyn.

St. Patrick's Day French Manicure

Keeping with the St. Patrick's Day theme I wanted to do something quick and simple that anyone could do.  First up is a simple swatch of Zoya Shawn, a gorgeous olive green cream shade. This color does have a bit of a yellow undertone and was really hard to get the color right, second is more color accurate.


Next I used some tape to make a straight line across the top of each nail and painted the tips gold using Ziv also by Zoya, followed by Glisten and Glow H K Girl topcoat (seriously the BEST).
