Quick Nail Art With Milani

I started with Milani Ready To Wear Red - a fantastic polish - and then free-handed a skinny french tip in Milani Fresh Teal. I love red and turquoise together!

Zoya Nail Art

About a month ago I posted a dotticure using Zoya Mae and Cecilia but I forgot to show you the pictures of both hands; I did different nail art on my right and left hands - a rarity. On my right hand a I did a gradient using Zoya Cecilia and Nana. Not something I'll do often but having different things on my hands didn't feel quite as crazy as I thought it would.

Fast, bold nail art that takes very little time. I started with a base of Zoya Nana and then added a stripe of Zoya Storm. Great color combo and a great way to show off a precious polish.

OPI You Don't Know Jacques!

OPI You Don't Know Jacques! was originally from their Fall 2008 La Collection de France but has since been made part of their Classics collection. It was a huge hit when released and is still a great color. Shown here at three thin coats - application was mostly good but the formula is very thin so the polish did flood my cuticles a couple of times. Still a winner though!

OPI Done Out In Deco

OPI Done Out In Deco was part of their 2009 Spring South Beach collection. It was then part of their regular lineup but has since been discontinued. I highly recommend grabbing it if you ever come across a bottle. It's one of my sister's top 5 favorite polishes of all time and she has a couple of backup bottles so she let me try it out. I understand why it's a favorite. Fantastic application for any polish, but especially for a pale creme  and a unique color. Amazing polish!

Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens

My sister has been going through her polish collection and discovered this weird but beautiful polish hiding in her stash. She's wearing Nails Inc Hampstead Gardens shown here at two easily applied coats. This shade is definitely not for everyone but it looks great with most of her wardrobe and is such a unique color. Great polish and thanks for sharing Ashley!

Layering With Sally Hansen Pearl Crush

Sally Hansen's new Pearl Crush polishes are very interesting glitter toppers but a little tough to figure out so I've got lots to say about them! Here we have Sally Hansen She Sells layered over Sally Hansen Bare Hug.

Pearl Crush polishes have fairly large hexagon mylar glitters that constantly shift colors, really gorgeous glitters! She Sells also has very fine beige shimmer. It applies nicely and I didn't need to do any fishing for the large glitter. The glitters did occasionally stick to each other though creating very small stacks of 2-4 glitters. It was very easy to spot and fix with the brush (I just touched them again and then placed the glitter where I wanted it) and some people might not have noticed. I applied 2 coats mostly to make sure the shimmer didn't have any brushstrokes.
 

I really love this layering combination and think the Pearl Crush polishes are worth a look if you like unique polishes. The glitter looks like drops of water constantly catching the light which had me staring at my nails!

Zoya Genesis And Song

I wasn't too excited about this idea but I had already tried several other nail art ideas and nothing was quite working out. I ended up really loving this simple nail art and striking color combo though! I started with a base of Zoya Genesis and then added a bit of Zoya Song
