China Glaze: Boundary of Memory Chevron French Nails

Hello :) I have a gorgeous polish to show you that I recently bought at Sally Beauty Supply. It's Boundary of Memory by China Glaze. It's part of The Giver collection which is a limited edition collection. I saw the display and this polish was one of 2 glitters in the collection and it just stood out to me. It reminded me of some on the old 2 coat glitter polishes that were around a few years ago.

Boundary of Memory is such a nice polish! I wish all glitters were like this. It's a clear base with densely packed black, gold, and copper micro glitter! I only needed two coats for opaque coverage and it went on so easy. This polish has a perfect glitter formula, not too thin and runny or thick and goopy. I'm so happy I picked it up.

I don't usually like gold or copper but this glitter just looked so nice. I really like that the mix of colored glitters makes it look like a sparkly brown in some lights. It'll be a really pretty polish for autumn!

When I tried the polish on I loved it so much that I decided to do a chevron french design in black and gold. I completely forgot to get a picture of Boundary of Memory by itself! At least most of the nail is the gorgeous glitter so you can still see how great it is. 
If you love a nice micro glitter with a 2 coat formula I'd really go out and find this polish, you won't be disappointed with it :)
Thank you for checking out this post, I hope you stop by soon for more!

Moon & Star Nails

Hello :) Do you ever paint your nails just to paint them and then come up with an idea out of nowhere? Well that happened to me and what I ended up painting ended up pretty cute!
I had just don't a sponge gradient going from blue to teal. I wasn't even going to post the gradient, it was just for fun and nothing too special. When I was done I took a look at my nails and they sort of reminded me of a night sky. I thought they'd look cute with a moon painted on so I thought it wouldn't hurt to try it out and a while later I ended up with these moon and stars nails!

I started out by painting a crescent moon on my middle nail in silver. Then I dabbed on some sliver glitter to add some sparkle to the moon. After I finished that I thought it'd be cute to paint on some stars so I used the silver to do that on two nails. When I was done with that I used the glitter polish to paint the last two nails. It all looked so pretty together that I had to post it!

I always find it weird when something like this happens. I just didn't want naked nails and wasn't trying to do anything creative. It just goes to show that when you least expect it creativity just happens and sometimes the end result is good!

I hope you enjoyed this post and check back soon for more!

Matte & Chrome

Hey! I have some really simple but nice looking nails for you today. I've had OPI's Push and Shove for a while now and haven't used it but today I thought of a design to try it out with. I decided to combine two of my favorite polish finishes, chrome and matte!

I started out by painting all my nails with a deep purple matte polish. I let it dry completely before putting on chevron stickers. I used the stickers to get nice lines when I applied the silver chrome polish. I painted each nail a little different just to mix it up.

There wasn't much else to these nails. I didn't use any kind of topcoat. I like the contrast between the matte and chrome! I think it looks really cool! I had a bit of a hard time trying to photograph these nails but you can still see the contrast.

Thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you check back soon for more posts!!

Galaxy Nails Part 3

Hi Hi!! Back in 2012 I was really loving galaxy nails. I did 2 posts of them here and here. I felt like doing some more galaxy nails today so that's what I have to show you! I really like outer space and there are no two space pictures that look alike so I always like how different and creative doing galaxy nails can be. No matter what you do they always look cool!
I wanted to try making these galaxy nails somewhat different than my last 2 attempts. I picked out some sparkly and color shifting polishes to sponge over a black base.

I randomly sponged different colors in different areas on each nail. I tried to give each nail a different shape while sponging the colors just so they looked a bit soft and had a flow to it. I kind of wanted the color to fade into the black background so it wasn't too much of a contrast. Once I liked how each nail looked I dabbed on some glitter. I also added a few big stars just for fun :)

It was really hard to get nice clear pictures of these nails. All the sparkly polishes just messed with my camera I guess. These two pictures were the clearest and some of the only ones where you could actually see what was going on :/ 
In person these are so pretty! They sparkle and look pretty cool! I wish I could have gotten better pics :)

Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you check back soon!
