Fruity Nails

How do you guys wear these guys on without them feeling awkward on your fingers? Lol. I had to put a really thick coat of Seche Vite to secure each amd every fruits. However, pictured below is my nail without topcoat. They wore pretty well for a day & a half, until I started to pick them off.

Fruits! Yum :)

Colorful Cheetah Prints

Another colorful nail design down before Pride comes around, which is this weekend! The first colorful design was from this post. Let's see if I can squeeze in three other designs before Saturday. Yup, so the overall mani is colorful cheetah print nails w/ a matte finishing. I love love love it so much!

Soft Rainbow Water Marble + Shatter

San Francisco Pride is next weekend, so I'll be making my nails colorful til the end of the month. I started off with doing a rainbow water marble on only my left hand with light shades of colors. It came out really adorable, but if only each finger matched my index & middle fingers. I have a love & hate relationship with water marbling, so I'm glad this worked out a bit to my liking. I ended up not water marbling my right hand, but painting each colors instead. It came out very nice!

I ended up putting shatter on my nails during the second day of wear. My left hand had a top coat prior to shattering & you can total see the difference between both hands. I preferred the big shattered, made it so much easier to see my colorful nails!

OPI Black Shatter over White

Ever since I tried the black crackle/shatter, I fell in love with the black/white combo! For this mani I used OPI Black Shatter over Sinful Colors White on White. Simple, yet oh so lovely! ^___^V

Sinful Colors Midnight Blue w/ dots

Remember this mani? Well since that one turned out way better than expected, I wanted to try another color combo with a matte top coat. For my current mani, I am wearing Sinful Colors Midnight Blue with China Glaze Millennium from their Khrome collection for the dots. Midnight Blue has been with me way before I started collecting nail polishes, & it's almost running out! Then I topped the mani off with Essie Matte About You & that made the mani 100x better IMO. Ah, I also need to keep practicing on dotting my dots =P
