BACK! With Neon + Neutral Tape Mani

Hey everyone! So sorry for my absence...wedding planning, traveling for work and just being so busy has been keeping me away.

Today I have a really fun mani featuring two great polishes. I started with Maybelline Express Finish in Brassy, my classic neutral. Then using a tape mani technique painted over it with China Glaze Escaping Reality from their Cirque Du Soleil collection. I peeled the tape off, and voila! I love the neon and neutral trend and this is just one more fun way to spice it up.





Enjoy!

Watercolor Deep V Mani with China Glaze, Essie and Chanel Pastels

Hey everyone! So sorry for my absence. The good news: I have lots of fun swatches and nail art looks to share! Today's is a mix of two trends: One that I call 'Deep V' which exposes a small reverse triangle on your nail, and the 'watercolor' trend. To achieve the watercolor look, simply start with a base in a light, pastel shade, and using a sponge, makeup sponge, or even a nail art brush, just dab on a few other pastels. I used China Glaze Tart-y For the Party, Essie Pop Art Pink and Chanel Riva. For the Deep V, I used Maybeline Express Finish in Brassy. Hope you enjoy this look!





Enjoy and have a fun weekend!
