Swirl Nail Art With OPI Nordic Collection!

Press Sample

Good morning, readers! I have another nail art look using the new OPI Nordic Collection polishes to show you today! It's actually the mani I'm currently wearing and I love it so much! There are 12 polishes in the new OPI Nordic Collection, so the nail art possibilities are endless! I've used three shades for today's nail art: How Great Is Your Dane?, Suzi Has A Swede Tooth, and My Dogsled Is A Hybrid.

Dot Nail Art with Zoya Naturel Deux!

Press Sample

Are you ready to see some fall colors yet? I received the new Zoya Naturel Deux (2) Collection last weekend and will have the swatches posted at the end of the week. In the meantime, here is a fun dotticure I did using all 6 shades! I really liked how the whole collection fit together and these random overlapping dots showcase them as a whole.

The Lacquer Legion, Fandom: The Pandorica Opens

Good morning!! I am so excited to be participating in this month's Lacquer Legion nail art prompt! #LLFandom is right up my nail art alley, and of course I had to go with another Doctor Who themed mani! This time, I extended my "exploding TARDIS" design a bit more: I've included part of The Pandorica Opens (exploding TARDIS) painting, The Pandorica, and the crack. They all are connected in the part 2 finale of Doctor Who, Season 5 so why not put them all together?

Barielle Hand/Nail Care Product Review!

Press Sample

Let's talk hand and nail care for a minute! We all love having pretty polished nails, but we can't forget to take care of those hands and nails to keep them healthy. Moisturizing is my biggest tip as a fellow nail polish lover! When I was accepted to the blogger program with Barielle, I asked if I could review some hand care items and not just nail polish. For me, it's so important to take care of your nails and hands and not just cover them up. So here is a review of the three nail/hand care products I wanted to try out for you: 60 Second Mani-Pedi, Nail Strengthener Cream, and Intensive Hand Treatment Cream.

Pahlish Sarey's Berry + Butterfly Wing Nail Art!

Good morning! If you are a new-comer to the Pahlish buying life, as I am, you may not have heard of Bespoke Batches. Basically, they are limited edition and one-time-sale polishes. This is due to ingredients not being available anymore, or the cost being too high to produce as core colors. So today, I show you my very first Bespoke Batch polish: Pahlish Sarey's Berry.  It is a gorgeous bright purple/fuchsia jelly with a mix of soft white, violet, and blue flakes. AKA: AMAZING! This just made it's way into my top polishes for sure. I can't tell you enough good things about this polish, aside from the fact that I'm sad you can't all get it anymore. It is one that I think every polish lover needs in their collection.

Of course I wanted to do some nail art with Sarey's Berry, but didn't want to cover up too much of the beauty of it. So, I used my own Butterfly Wing Nail Art Tutorial and added the wing designs to accentuate the base color.
