Sarah here! For today’s manicure monday post I wanted something soft and romantic. This color, Backstage, is from Victoria’s Secret. Unfortunately, they no longer carry their line of nail polish. It’s sad because they had some really great colors! I’m seriously loving this one right now!
Today Emily is bringing you some pretty pastels and polkadots for todays Mani-Monday!
I just got this pretty mint-blue from Essie called Blossom Dandy! I realized I don’t really have a lot of spring colors and this color is so bright and happy, I love it!. I wanted to add a little more to it so I used a Sally Hansen nail art pen in white to create the polka dots for some quick and cute nail art!
I just found this awesome holographic top coat from Revlon called holographic pearls and it is mesmerizing! It was really hard for me to capture the crazy sparkle that happens in the sunlight. I put two coats over a silver metallic polish from Sephora and it really makes the sparkle pop. I’m definitely going to be using this top coat all summer!
I decided to use 5 different shades of pastel blues/greens as my base. From left to right it is: Wet n’ Wild in Bird Bath, Covergirl in Skylight, Essense in You Belong to Me, American Apparel in Office, and Covergirl in Mint Mojito. Then, I used a white polish with a dotting tool to create little white dasies and used an orangey yellow in the centers!
Here is Emily’s Manicure Monday for this week!
I spent today and last night in Hocking Hills, Ohio and I loved the way the color of my nails looked in the beautiful view from out cabin’s deck. I am wearing Grandiose by Formula X for Sephora which is a super shimery color that reflects both a deep magenta, a copper color, and cold depending on the lighting.
I’m about to go on vacation so I wanted a fun, playful manicure this week! I decided to go for an all over glitter polish. This is one of my all time favorite glitter polishes: Scorcher from Urban Outfitters. It covers very well and the larger flecks of glitter are such fun colors! I absolutely love it and it’s perfect for this time of year! It’s just a little reminder that Spring is just around the corner 🙂
I recently saw Essie’s new collection Cashmere Matte at Target and I fell in love with the color in the bottle. I wasn’t sure what exactly the finish “cashmere matte” would be but I decided to give it a try. The color once it dries becomes way less sparkly but I’m still satisfied with the end result. Coat Couture is a medium grayish-purple with undertones of teal glitter that you can see in the highlights. It’s so pretty!
