Blue & Holo Negative Space Colour Blocking

Good morning lovelies & Happy Friday! The countdown to the weekend is officially on… unless you work in retail or customer service & then what is a weekend? Haha.

Today I have another new manicure to share with you — I know, I’m on a roll. This time I’m throwing it back with some negative space colour blocking. This manicure idea popped in my head the other night when I was trying to figure out what to do on my nails including exactly the colours that I needed to use. & thankfully the sun decided to come around so I could show you this manicure in the light it deserves.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

It’s been so long, too long, since I pulled out my bottle of A Pirate’s Life from Wrenn Polish & I thought it would look so pretty with a holo accent so I grabbed Happy Thoughts too. In regular light the holo kind of hides a bit, but as soon as you hit bright light BAM! 💥 There it is! You can’t miss those gorgeous rainbows. & I just love how this design turned out, especially since the whole manicure took me less than 20 minutes & didn’t need any tools or tape — just a steady hand.

what are you wearing on your nails for the weekend? I’m going to (hopefully) redo my nails tonight so leave any nail art suggestions down in the comments below!

Pretty in Pink Holo Valentine’s Day Nails

Good morning lovelies & happy Tuesday. Also happy 2 days until Valentine’s Day… if you’re into that kinda thing. Haha.

I’m into any holiday that encourages pretty nails & I was feeling a little bit of holo. Especially since I have been a bit out of the nail art routine lately. So it felt like a good excuse to pull out a few of my favourite Wrenn Polish shades for some pink heart nail art! 💕

For this design, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: Claire’s Miracle Base Coat
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • Wrenn Polish Passionfruit Pink
  • Wrenn Polish Enchanted
  • UR Sugar Nail Vinyls (Heart Pattern)

I really love the subtlety of this look. You have the pop of holo with Enchanted over the more soft base of Passionfruit Pink so the design really comes out best in motion. You get that little bit of rainbow which shows off your heart pattern. & even best… it’s super easy! All it takes is two polishes, a few nail vinyls, & bam! Easy & fancy nails.

This is a really fun look to wear for whatever your Valentine’s Day plans may be, whether it’s a romantic date with your love, margaritas with your besties, or eating an entire box of chocolate with your cat. Who doesn’t want to have pretty nails?

Pink Purple Blue Holo Gradient

Good morning everyone & happy Wednesday! Today I’m showing off some holo nails with this pinky purple blue holo gradient. Sometimes you just need to do something a little fun on your nails to jazz up your Wednesday!

This gradient was a spur of the moment decision & because of that I couldn’t find my usual sponges so I decided to try using a make up applicator. It didn’t turn out exactly like I wanted (or how I’ve seen other nail artists do it) but that’s okay because the holo kind of hides that fact! ✨Another reason everything is better with holo.

The polishes I used for this manicure:

  • Essie Grow Stronger
  • Essie Speed Setter Top Coat
  • Wrenn Polish Mesmerizing
  • Color Club Eternal Beauty
  • OPI Give Me Space
  • Small Sponge make-up applicator

Look. At. That. Holo. Also please ignore the cat hair on my finger haha. Even though my sponging if the gradient was kind of a fail, the holo really hides that fact which I love. Next time I would probably try this colour combo the old fashioned way, but for a quick spur of the moment design, I still think these turned out great. Plus it was super easy, & when you’re tired & doing your nails at 11:30 at night, sometimes that’s the only thing that really matters.

what do you think of this gradient. What is your favourite holo polish? Let me know down below in the comments!

Mermaid Nails

It feels like ages since I last pulled out my mermaid stencils for some mermaid nails. The other night I was playing with some new flakies from NailStuff.ca & after looking at them on my nails, I couldn’t help but think they would make an amazing base for a mermaid nail design! I’ve had this mermaid tail idea floating around a while, so I grabbed some more vinyls from What’s Up Nails (I believe it’s suppose to be a whale tail) & have it a go.

For this manicure, the polishes I used were:

  • Base Coat: OPI Nail Envy
  • Top Coat: Essie Speed Setter
  • FingerPaints Fun Peel Off Base Coat (to apply flakies)
  • Sally Hansen Miracle Gel Ocean Daze
  • NailStuff.ca Flakies — these guys aren’t currently available but there is a huge selection here!
  • What’s Up Nails Scale Stencils
  • What’s Up Nails Whale & Tale Stencils
  • Color Club Eternal Beauty
  • Layla Cosmetics Mermaid Spell
  • Color Club Crystal Baller
  • Wrenn Polish Mesmerizing
  • Wrenn Polish Summer Sands
  • NailStuff.ca Summer Nail Wheel — Silver seahorse stud

This design didn’t quite turn out how I pictured on my head, but that’s mostly the tail look on my ring finger. I really wish it was bigger. I do however love the holo scales over the flakie base just makes me so happy! I also wish I had done that look on the majority of my fingers with just the stud being my accent! (& if I had more of these nail vinyls left, I probably would have… going to need to buy some more ASAP!)

Also holo & flakies have to be the most beautiful combination. Definitely trying out these flakies OVER holo next!

SWATCH SUNDAY — New Polish from Wrenn Polish (& an old favourite too!)

Happy Sunday lovelies! & happy Canada Day 🇨🇦 to all my Canadian followers! I hope everyone is surviving the heat we’re currently experiencing across the country.

Today’s Swatch Sunday post is an exciting one. I recently received some new beauties from Alissa at Wrenn Polish. She just released a brand new polish called Summer Sands which is a sandy tan holo & restocked one of her popular shades Happy Thoughts! & I was lucky enough to receive both gorgeous shades to add to my growing Wrenn Polish collection.

*PR SAMPLE* Some of these items were sent to me for review. However, all opinions are my own

Holo Claws!

Happy Friday lovelies. I, for one, am very excited for the impending weekend–even though I work tomorrow, I can’t wait for this week to be over. After getting over some sickness at the beginning of the week, I ended up with some eye issues which has kept me from doing nail art. I hate when that happens! Thankfully I managed to finally repaint my (very) chipped nails last night & will hopefully be able to create some new nail art tonight.

So for today’s post, I went back into my phones camera roll & found a design from a while back (the last time my nails were rounded).

For this design the polishes I used were:

Oooooh I’m LOVING the combination. The pink compliments the blue really well, & even blends into it… until it hits that light & BAM! holo amazing-ness. & talk about distracting… I wore these nails to work & spent a large chunk of my day trying not to get distracted by the beautiful holo on my nails. I don’t wear Wrenn Polish Enchanted nearly enough. It’s just such an absolutely stunning polish.

Also you can never go wrong with chevron claws, especially when they’re holo. ✨

SWATCH SUNDAY — Perfect Shades for Spring!

Happy Sunday lovelies! Today I’ve taken another trip through my stash & picked out 5 polishes that I’m loving for Spring! I did a similar post last year, so I thought I would do another round of my favourite picks for Spring. & yes, I did put Essie Bikini So Teeny on the list again, but this is a brand new bottle so it counts!

Zoya — Daisy

There is something about yellow polish that is so perfect for Spring & Zoya Daisy is a perfect yellow. This shimmery yellow is bright & reminds me of sunshine & I love wearing it as a base for roses because they pop so well. Also yellow always makes you look so tanned!

BUY HERE

Quo by ORLY — Platina

I love white nail polish, this is no secret. & my love for this limited edition Quo by ORLY shade from Spring 2018 is HUGE! The off white with subtle shimmer means you get the look of wearing white nail polish without having to worry about looking like you’re wearing white out on your nails. & the perfect base shade for floral accent nails!

Quo by ORLY polishes can be found at your local Shoppers Drug Mart.

Sally Hansen Complete Salon Manicure — Rose to the Occasion

So, yeah… sorry about my bottle shots. This was one of the polishes from Sally Hansen’s Beautifier Collection I won from Lauren’s List & we lost one of the others in transit so my bottle is a mess. But the polish itself–a beautiful blush pink–is one of my favourite colours for Spring! I’ve been buying everything in it–shirts, shoes, nail polish! I just can’t get enough.

You can find this Sally Hansen shade wherever Sally Hansen polish is sold.

Essie — Bikini So Teeny

I literally cannot include a favourite polishes for Spring without including one of my all time favourite shades–Essie Bikini So Teeny! This vibrant corn flower blue also has that subtle shimmer that I love so much. One of my favourite bases for vintage roses or just on it’s own for days when I need something quick & easy.

BUY HERE

Wrenn Polish — I Know Guac is Extra!

I have never been a green person, but wearing this green from Wrenn Polish has converted me! Sometimes you need a little greenery on your nails & this is the perfect shade for that. The creamy green is just. so. good. Seriously, if you’re looking for one green to add to your collection, this is the one you need. (Seriously, I’m obsessed!)

BUY HERE

& just for fun, I had to create some nail art using my Spring Polish picks! How pretty do all the shades look paired in a stripe design. My nails are so short & breaky lately, they need some added length…. even if it’s all an illusion. Haha. I just my Bundle Monster striping Brush for my freehand stripes.
