Splatter Nails with @xromapolishandvinyls!

Happy Monday everyone! 

I was recently sent some nail vinyls to play with from @xromapishandvinyls & as soon as they arrived I couldn’t wait to pull them out & start creating. You know how much I LOVE my nail vinyls, & Xroma Polish and Vinyls have a ton of awesome creative designs available on their site

First design I grabbed to play around with was the splat stencils! 

For this manicure, I used:

  • Base Coat: Perfect Formula Pink Gel Coat
  • Top Coat: Cutex Quick Dry Top Coat
  • Essie Butler Please
  • ACO by Ardene Ice Mist
  • Quo by ORLY mini unnamed pink
  • Quo by ORLY mini unnamed mint 
  • Xroma Polish and Vinyls Splat Stencil 
  • Small dotting tool 

Isn’t this pattern so much fun?! I’m sure I’m not the only person who loves splatter nails but hates the clean up. Plus even with filling in my splats individually, this manicure was easy & surprisingly quick to do! 

These were so much fun to do & even more fun to wear! They even matched my OOTD. I’d definite recommend checking out Xroma Polish And Vinyls site yourself, & all the amazing patterns available. They ship world wide from Australia, & mine arrived super quick! I think it took only 6 business days & I live on the other side of the world in Canada so I though that was really impressive. 

What do you think of this manicure? Let me know in the comments below!

I’ve been trying to wear older polishes in my stash a little more lately. Sometimes I forget I own certain polishes I’ve had for a while (like 4+ years Haha.) I guess that’s what happens when your polish is quickly approaching the 1000s. 

When I first started growing my stash, Essence was my go to. Their Color & Go line was one of my favourites, and I still adore (almost) all of their polishes with all of my heart. My base is Essence Color and Go Luxury Secret, a dark metallic grey which I picked up when Essence first showed up at Shoppers Drug Mart with their cute little mini round bottles. 

  
The polishes I used for this manicure were:

  • Essence Color & Go Luxury Secret
  • China Glaze Dune Our Thing 
  • Milani Nail Art with precision brush (in black) 
  • Essie Good to Go
  • Kiss Perfect Design tip Guides (chevrons) 
  • Small sized dotting toll

 
  

This design turned out very tribal/Aztec and I dig it. I also adore how well China Glazs Dune Our Thing really pops against Luxury Secret. Pink and dark grey are just such a fantastic combo together. 

What do you think of this Color combo and design? What are some of your favourite forgotten polish favourites?

And just for fun, here’s my OOTD and NOTD. Cosy blush sweater is from Ardene, black Jeggings are Garage and black combat boots are also Ardene. I love when my nails and my outfit compliment each other so well by accident!) 

 
Have a lovely Tuesday! 💗
