Purple Glitter Nails

Sorry for not posting in a while, but I wasn’t happy with my last nail design, so I decided to skip it. I also haven’t had many ideas for nail art lately. I might start a challenge soon since they’re always really fun to do. Anyway, this nail art is simple, but it looks so pretty in person.

For my base color, I used Orly Close Your Eyes, a beautiful red-toned purple. I applied two coats of this polish and was surprised by the opacity and pigmentation. I’m not sure why, but I expected it to be sheerer for some reason. I wish I hadn’t covered it up as much as I did because it’s such a great color.

I used a couple glitter polishes for the design. It was originally supposed to be a gradient, but I was in a rush so I didn’t do a great job of blending. The polishes I used are Sinful Colors Star Studded and Milani Jewel FX Lavender.

Simple Stripes Pink Nails

I did these nails a couple of weeks ago, but I was waiting until the holidays were over to post them. They’re simple, but I really like them. I wanted a bright pink mani with just a small detail. The pink is Revlon Parfumerie African Tea Rose, and the green stripe is Sinful Colors Nail Art Take Me To Heaven.

My Favorite Nail Art From 2015

Several bloggers have already posted their favorite designs from last year (two that inspired me to do this specifically are PiggieLuv and Lacquer Lockdown, both which have incredible designs!) and it’s been really fun reading the posts and looking back at all the nail art from 2015. So I thought it would be a cool idea to pick 10 of my own favorites. Read more below!
