Glowing Neon Nails

Hello! Today I felt like using some of the Serum No. 5 neon glow polishes that I haven't used. I wasn't very sure of what I wanted to do with them so I just started paining and decided to see where I ended up. I wasn't feeling too inspired so I ended up doing something really simple using 3 polishes.

I had picked out a yellow, orange, and red orange. I painted 2 colors on each nail diagonally. I liked how it looked but decided to add some dots along both sides of color. I added some smaller dots on top of those dots. The dots sort of reminded me of some type of candy I liked as a kid :) 
The photo above really makes the red orange color look way too orange. It looks more color accurate in the photo below.

I did like how these turned out. It was just something really easy to do and I liked all the colors together but the best part was seeing them glow! As always Serum No. 5 glow polishes never fail! The glow is so bright and long lasting. All three of the polishes I used glowed different colors so that looked even cooler in the dark!

I know these nails aren't much but I still really like them for just having sat down with no plan in mind when painting my nails. I think I mainly like them because of the glow but either way they're nice :)
Thanks for checking out this post and I hope you check back next week for another post!

Corgi Nails

Hello!! Two and a half months ago my family got a puppy! It's been a bit crazy trying to do nails when there's a cute pup running around, but last night I got a chance to do these super cute nails!
We got a corgi and he's sooooo cute!! When I was thinking of what to paint on my nails I thought it'd be cute to see if I could paint his cute little face on a nail.

I decided to give it a try! I didn't really plan anything out and just went for it. I ended up painting 3 doggy faces. I used some photos of my puppy and some other corgis I found online just as guides for colors. The puppy on the middle nail is mine! I painted some paw prints on the last two nails. I really love how they turned out!

The corgi faces just make them so cute and fun to wear! The above picture is a closer look at my thumb nail. Below is a closer look at my middle and ring nails.

Neon Negative Space Nails

Hi there! I've been seeing negative space nails all over recently and I'm loving how they look! The natural nail peeking through parts of a fun design just looks so cool to me. It's something different and fun.

Today I decided to try it out myself! I used 3 of my neon glow in the dark Serum No. 5 polishes. I thought the glow would add little extra. I started out with a base coat and some straight nail stickers to make random lines on my nails. I painted one nail at a time and quickly removed the stickers before moving on to the next nail.

Since I used 3 colors I painted 3 nails one solid color. On the remaining 2 nails I sponged on a gradient of all 3 colors. Once everything was dry I added two layers of topcoat.

These nails were pretty easy to do and didn't take much time. I really love the final outcome! They look really cool in the dark too! I'd really like to try them out again in different colors and designs.

Cupcake Stamped Gradient

Hello! Today I noticed two polishes I haven't gotten around to using so I decided to give them a try. The polishes were a baby blue and a light pink that just looked pretty next to each other. 
I started out by doing a water marble with them. I did the marble on two nails but the blue was way too sheer and wasn't what I was going for. I liked the marbled nails even though I could see the white base underneath so I just kept them as accent nails. I moved on to doing a gradient on the rest of my nails. I really liked how both the colors blended together!

After looking at them for a bit I felt they needed something more so I stamped on some cute cupcakes with white polish. Once I was done I loved them! I know they're simple and not too creative but sometimes I just like to pick out some polishes and do whatever comes to mind. It doesn't always turn out cute but luckily these nails did :)
I hope you enjoyed this random post and thanks for stopping by!!
