As I put together this week’s Manicure Monday post, some very dear friends of mine are traveling around Paris. Me missing them (and wishing I was in Paris too!) gave me the idea to do a French Manicure. However, instead of doing the traditional white tip, I thought I would do a black tip instead. I also thought a nude nail would go better with the black instead the usual sheer pink.
For the black tips, I used Orly Liquid Vinyl. For the nude nails, I used Zoya Shay. I also thought it would be a little fun to add an Eiffel Tower so I used Winstonia nail stamp plate W114.
I’m still trying to get the hang of nail stamping. I messed up a little bit on the Eiffel Tower so I tried to paint on the missing piece. Can you tell?
I hope you like this week’s Manicure Monday!
A month ago, I went to my sister’s social event for school. I wanted to paint my nails to go along with my dress. The problem was my dress was plain ol’ black with nude colored polka dots. Pretty boring for a manicure. Then it hit me. Why not copy the collar of my dress!? My dress had a simple Peter Pan collar. I figured I would only do the Peter Pan collar on one finger that way it wouldn’t get too crazy, and the Peter Pan collar stood out more.
Find out which colors I used and how I created the Peter Pan collar!
Happy Spring! Finally it is here! For this week’s Manicure Monday, I did a rainbow of pastel colors. This is also the first time I’ve ever done polka dots. I used a dotting tool and it was really easy. Since my nails are a bit rounded, my nails ended up looking like Easter eggs. Perfect for upcoming Easter!
These are the colors I used:
Yellow – Sinful Colors Unicorn
Pink – China Glaze Life Is Rosy
Green – China Glaze Keep Calm, Paint On
Purple – China Glaze Tart-y For The Party
Hope everybody has a wonderful week!

For this week’s Manicure Monday, I used China Glaze For Audrey because this week is my birthday! I thought it would be fun to use a nail polish that was made for me. Get it? For Audrey. So it’s for me. =) I wanted to keep it simple so I just used nail tape to create the lines. I didn’t want to take the attention away from the gorgeous color. I think For Audrey is one of my all time favorite shades.
Hope everybody has a good week!
