Nail Art | #lovewins


I have been waiting for this day for a long time. And I have been holding on to this nail art for a couple months.

Today the Supreme Court ruled in favor of legalizing gay marriage nationally in the US. While it has been legal here in Massachusetts for quite some time now, the emotional reaction I have had from this historic day has left me in tears on and off all day. The outpouring of kindness and love and hope from my social media feeds is amazing. 

I have been dating my beautiful girlfriend for almost 7 years now and to know that no matter where we live now, if we decide we want to choose marriage we can do that is a feeling like no other.

So I am sharing this rainbow manicure with you all today to commemorate this wonderful decision.


I started this nail art out with a couple coats of Digital Nails Supernova, an amazingly holo silver glitter bomb.


After the glitter was dry I used the four Polish Pusher Sheer Perfection lacquers to paint on a rainbow just using the polish brushes and overlapping the colors on my nails.

 I finished this super easy nail art off with a coat of super shiny topcoat to seal it all in and make it sparkle.

Nail Art | Betelgeuse Circuits



I'm back today with another nail art using the Doctor Lacquer Something Spacial: Stars collection. This is a simple stamping done over my favorite of the four colors, Betelgeuse.


Betelgeuse is a red based tri thermal and it separates so well! I started with a few coats of that and then added a quick layer or Seche Vite  and let it dry.

Nail Art | Summer Sunglasses


With the first official day of summer just around the corner, I thought I would share some super bright summer themed nails that were really easy to do!


I started out with a base of China Glaze Red-y To Rave on all but my ring finger, to which I applied OPI My Boyfriend Scales Walls. I added a quick coat of Seche Vite and let them dry mostly.

Nail Art | Fomalhaut Diamonds


I have some more nail art for you all today using the Something Spacial: Stars collection from one of my favorite brands, Doctor Lacquer! I'm going to get right into photos today since you all know how I feel about this brand already.


I started out with a base of Doctor Lacquer Fomalhaut, which is a tri thermal that shows purple, gold and green with a strong green shimmer. This is such a unique polish even in my extensive collection.

Nail Art | Born Pretty Store Heart Decals

Purchased By MeProvided for Review

I am back with some more nail art! (and really, nail art this time, not just different colored fingers)

I was sent this uber cute package of water decals from Born Pretty Store a while back and I knew I wanted to do something overly cute with them. I thought about it a while and decided to use the designs on the hearts as inspiration for the nails they would go on. So gradients, polkadots and stripes won out!
 

I love love love how these came out!! The only nail I wasn't 100% happy with is the index, and that is just because my white ended up kinda grey.
