Don’t even criticize on the application of this. Seriously. This nail polish and I have a love-hate relationship. I LOVE the colour, HATE the application. First coat – you can barely see it, yet it still takes a while to dry. Second coat- meh, it’s still too sheer. Third coat- starting to feel a bit too thick because of the jelly consistency. Since this is such a popular colour, I really wish that they fixed up the formula a bit. 😦 But the colour itself is an awesome summer colour, but I definitely prefer the consistency and application of For Audrey by China Glaze to this, even though they are different colours, this is more green-turquoise.
Products I Used:
Turquoise and Caicos – Essie
In The Spotlight – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear
Arm candy is super trendy these days. Stacking bracelets of all sorts of varieties looks super fashionable. Mix and match, or have a specific colour theme, do what you want and it’ll look FABULOUS. Check these out for some ideas. ***I DO NOT TAKE CREDIT FOR ANY OF THESE PICTURES FOR THEY ARE NOT MINE***
The weather was looking nice so I decided to change up my nails, the sun was showing so I picked yellow….and pink was just a random choice. I usually would never wear yellow on my nails(or well ALL my nails), just not the yellow type of girl, and I’m not a “fan” of pink nail polish…so why not put them together? 😛 Colour blocking colours has been a trend that’s been “in” for quite some time, as well as the whole accent nail trend. Why not give it a go if you haven’t already? 🙂
Products I Used:
Wanna Be Your Sunshine – Essence (sold at Shopper’s Drug Mart in Canada). They are small bottles, 7mL and only $1.49 so I figured why not – and from my experience, Essence nail polishes seemingly happen to be of quite decent quality, so don’t always judge quality by the price. This colour has gold shimmer in it that’s hard to see with this picture, but in the sunlight it really stands out.
Bubblegum Pink – Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear. I have had this colour lying around for some time, it’s a very Barbie pink colour in my opinion, kind of a blue toned pink. This colour has silver shimmer throughout, this shimmer tends to stand out and be visible in the sunlight, I think the shimmer really adds to the colour, makes it less dull looking.
Make a statement with a pop of colour on your nails! As you can see in this photo, Miley Cyrus’ outfit consists of toned down, nude colours, and then the bright blue nail polish just makes a statement with the brightness and contrast from the rest of what she’s wearing.
I really didn’t want to take off my zebra nails, they still hadn’t chipped! But it’s rather unusual for me to keep the same nail polish on for more than say, 3 days? Just because I like change. Hehe. Soooo, since it’s summer (although the weather surely seems to disagree with that) I wanted to do something “bright” and “summer-y” . So here are some coral nails with white dots at the tips. These are rather simple, but sometimes it’s nice to have SOMETHING going on rather than keeping it plain. 🙂
H&M Nail Polish in the colour CITY – this is my first H&M nail polish, so far I like it, good consistency and opacity.
I haven’t been doing any “NOTD” posts because my zebra nails have held up QUITE well (absolutely NO chipping and they’re still shiny and look as good as new!), and plus I’ve been feeling a little under the weather so I haven’t really bothered to change up my nails ….. which isn’t normal, but yeah, look out for a new NOTD shortly though! 🙂 But until then……
I guess this isn’t much of a “quote” – but whatever. You know it’s true. quote source – weheartit.com

As I had said earlier, more animal print! Why do one solid colour when you can use three metallic colours! The more colours the merrier? I did this same look last summer, but with pink instead of purple at the tips.
Blue colour — I got this colour in Singapore a while back, it’s by a brand called ‘gigi’ – I have been trying to find a similar one here in Canada, but I haven’t had much luck. If you have any suggestions, please feel free to comment and tell me!
Silver — Celeb City by Sally Hansen Hard As Nails Xtreme Wear. Probably my favourite silver that I own.
I really enjoy animal print nails, I’ll put up some different zebra print ones some time in the future – but for now, I hope you enjoy these ones! The colourful prints look quite vivid with a contrasting solid white … Continue reading →
