4th of July Nail Art

Hello Everyone!
Here are some 4th of July Nail Designs for everyone to use!
1st one.....





4th of July French Manicure
1. Apply a Sheer Blue base and let dry
2. Apply red tip
3. Apply top coat
Easy, next one is a little more difficult.......





Tye-Dye Manicure
This one is a bit tricky at first, so you may need to practice
a few times to get the tye-dye effect...
1. Apply White Base
2. Take a SPONGE, and paint nail polish on the edge
3. Take the sponge, and lightly dab it on the tip of your
nail. This should create the tye-dye effect. This may
take practice
4. Apply design from Konad Image Plate M63
5. Apply Top-coat

Takes some practice, next one is easy.....


Random 4th of July Design
1. Apply red base
2. Add a blue glitter stripe to the top using a striping
brush
3. On the thumb, Add white dots to represent the
stars
Hope everyone has a GREAT 4th of July!

For Sophia

This is a request for my dear friend Sophia, for her occasion tomarrow!
For this type of occasion, you don't want anything too showy, so stick with
simple patterns and light colors.
First.....


That is sooo weird how it is sideways!
Polka dot french manicure
1. Apply a sheer sparkly coat to your nails and let dry
2. Apply a white tip to your nails
3. Using a toothpick, make white polka dots
4. Apply a top coat

Pretty Easy, Huh? Onto the next one!



Dot manicure
This one is super easy, too.
1. Apply a thin, white nail polish as the base
2. Using a toothpick, make black dots going across your
nail diagonally.
3. Apply top coat

SUPER EASY!
Neeeexxxttt...



Solid Colors
If you are going to wear a solid color for this occasion, make sure
it is light, and not too showy. Try choosing a fun color, like blue
to add a little flare, but not too much.

I hope I helped you Sophia!

OPI Greenwich Village Swatch

I have the swatch! This is such an awesome color.....


Ahhh! There is a big smudge on one of my nails! I didn't even notice that!
Oh well! As you can see, it's kind of a dirty green. I LOVE this color!
It kinda reminds me of the swamp! It has great application ( Especially
with the Pro-Wide brush which I LUV!). This is 2 coats.

My Nails of the Day!

Here is a pic of my nails today! It is a simple design....

1. Apply Basecoat
2. Apply a white nail polish as the base
3. Take any color of nail polish, and put a drop
of that color on a washable surface
4. Take a tooth pick and dip it into the drop of nail
polish, and begin making dots in random places
5. Take a different color of Nail Polish, and
repeat.
6. Apply a top coat once COMPLETLY dry,
or the dots will smudge.
Comment on how I did!

Random Konad Design!

Here is a random Konad design using Image plate M63!

Excuse the Mess-up on the pinkie nail!

Essie Neon Swatches

Okay, these pics should be a LOT better than my Mermaid in the Shade Swatches.
I took those in the dark, which is kinda hard to pull off. Anyway, here is the first color!




Perky Purple
Okay, this one is Kinda-sorta color accurate, but it is a little bit darker than this.
I really, Really, REALLY like this color. It is like, the perfect purple! Application was
really good, only 2 coats. One of my favorite nail polishes out of my collection!



Punchy Pink
This one is also kinda-sorta accurate. It is ALOT brighter than this picture
shows. I have worn this a few times since I have gotten it, and that means
alot! I rarely wear the same color! Application is good on this one, too. This
is also 2 coats.


Funky Limelight
Whoah! This is actually pretty accurate!!!! KEWL! This is three coats, and
it is still pretty see-through. DARN! Like I said before, this one for some reason
is a PAIN to apply! It dries super, SUPER fast, though, so that is good.
I like this color alot, though, don't get me wrong!


Flirty Fucshia
This one is also Kinda-sorta accurate! It is darker, but brighter at the same time!
This one probably has the best formula of all of them! This one is really awesome and
bright!!!!!!!!! This was 2 coats.

This is a REALLY cool collection! Every Nail Polish lover NEEDS to get this!

Mermaid in the Shade Swatches

Like I said before, I only have 2 of these, but better 2 than none, right?
I got these from my friend Sophia as a birthday present, UR AWESOME SOPHIA!
Here is the First one....



Mermaid to Order



Wow, what a HORRIBLE picture! It was the only one that
showed the color accuratly. I just noticed you can totally see
my nail line... oh well. Anyway, no probloms on the application.
It is sheer on the first coat, kinda-sorta bottle color on the second,
and bottle color on 3. I THINK this is 2, I can't even remember,
Haha! Very, very pretty, great for blue lovers!







Just a Fairy-Tail
Whoah!!!!! My hands look red!!!!! Haha, anyway, I really
love the foil finish on this. You can't see it in the picture,
but there is blue glitter in this!!! I really love this color,
this is what Mermaids nails would look like if you ever
saw one! Good application, but it is pretty sheer. This is
i think 4 coats. It takes a teensy bit of patience, but it is
worth it!

Overall, I love both of these colors!
Well, thats really all I have to say, so, BYE!

My Konad Design!

My dad let me borrow his camera, so I can do a little swatching tonight!!!!!

THANK YOU DAD!

Anyway, here is a Konad design that I wore today........

It was very simple to do, took about 5-10 minutes, so here is how to do it!
1. Apply Basecoat ( Duh!)
2. Use a white nail polish as the base color, but only use one coat so it is not completly
opaque.
3. Use a black nail polish ( I used OPI Black Onyx) on Konad Image Plate M63, and do the swirly one! ( Do you like my description? :D)
4. Apply a black tip!
5. Apply a Top coat
Easy enough, right? Comment to tell me how i did!
Coming up next? Mermaid in the Shade Swatches!
Then Essie Neons!
Then Greenwich Village!
Then...... I don't know! I haven't figured that out yet!
See ya!

Sephora by OPI Mermaid in the Shade Collection



Hello again!

I only have 2 of this collection, but someday I will hopefully have more!

Here we go!






Mermaid to Order

I wore this when I was swimming.... Anyway! I spaced off! Haha!
This is Sorta Duchorome, I dont think I spelled that right.... haha!
I really like this, really pretty.

Whoah!!!!!!!! This is really, REALLY small! This is the only pic of this color
that I could find, but it is a foil, it is silver with faint blue glitter in it, very
pretty, this is what mermaids nails would look like if I ever met one....
I will of course, swatch these when I get my camera back!

Opi Greenwich Village Review


I just got this color last week, and I REALLY LIKE IT!
Sadly, when I was applying
it, I got stung by a bee :'''(. I was out on my deck
from my room at my summer home
and I didn't realize a bees nest was right above
where I was sitting, so it came down and
stung my hand! I hate that bee...... ANYWAY!
Back to the color! I really like this color,
it reminds me of the swamp. Bottle color in 2 coats,
I love it!

Oh no!

I left my camera at my summer home! I am going there tomarrow, though, so I will have it back pretty soon! Now I guess I can just give reviews on recent colors I have gotten!
First of all, I got a big hall of Nail Polish from Head2toebeauty.com with my birthday
money, so I will do reviews!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

First off, the Essie Neons!




Funky Limelight

I don't know why, but I had SOOOOOO much trouble applying this!
Also, I don't understand why this picture shows it as bright yellow,
It's highlighter yellow! I really like this type of color, it was just a
PAIN to apply! On the good side though, it drys fast! Like all other
neons, it drys matte, but with a top coat, it is, of course shiny. ( Duh,
I don't even know why I said that! Haha.) I do, really, really like this
color though. ( I will have swatches once I have my camera :D)





Punchy Pink

I love this one too! This is REALLY bright! I have worn this several times already,
and that is saying ALOT for me! I rarely EVER wear the same color! I had no probloms
using this one!





Flirty Fuschia

This one is just a shade darker that Punchy Pink. I really like this one too!
Now really much to say, good application, super bright, great color.





Perky Purple
Yay!!!!!!!! I LUUUVVVVV this one! It has woonnddeerrffuull application, and, this is
like one of my favorite colors of nail polish that I have! This is such a cool color, my
favorite out of the collection!
Every one of these polishes has great formula, EXCEPT Funky Limelight!!!!!!!!
I reccomend every polish lover to buy these! I will have swatches once I have my
camera back!
Keep looking for more reviews on other polishes I bought!
