Polish polish and the Traveling Manhattan 610K

May 24:

Hey! So a few weeks ago I found out I had won the traveling polish! This time it was coming to me from the lovely Kamila and I received it in the mail two weeks ago. That means that as soon as I get my manicure posted I will be holding a contest for the next blogger this beauty is going to end up with! Stay tuned.

In the package Kamila also included some Polish polish which I cannot wait to wear, they are all so pretty! Thank you so much Kamila :)

Look for a post in a few days with my manicure/contest!

Until next time,
Happy painting!

Royal Wedding Nails

May 20:

School. Takes up all my free time. Basically. I've had papers in every class and it has been non stop but there should be a bit of a down time for this weekend so I hope to get everything posted that I have been planning on.

For now here is my belated Royal Wedding manicure. Very simple but I rocked it for a week. This was two coats of Revlon's "Royal" and I drew on the flag design on my ring finger.

My nails are a bit shorter now because they were getting too long for my liking but I had to keep some length.

Up next will be a post about some traveling polish from Poland :D Can't wait to talk about it!

Until next time,
Happy painting!

Playoff Hockey Nails

May 4:

So both of the teams I did this manicure for were eliminated already but I loved this manicure so much I had to post it. Hockey is one of those non-makeup obsessions of mine and I simply love combining it with nail art. It gets me painting my nails and focused on the game at the same time!

My number one favorite team is the Chicago Blackhawks (big surprise? I live there haha) and I was happy just to see them in the playoffs. Got to go to a few playoff games, my favorite games out of the whole year, and did Blackhawks nails to match but that may be for a later post.

My second favorite team is the New York Rangers, just love them, no reason why really. They went in to the playoffs 8th, like the Hawks, and lost to the number one team, like the Hawks, but it was great getting to watch a lot of playoff hockey. (I missed the only Rangers win because I was at a Hawks game, oh well.

For the base on the Hawks nails I used OPI's "Thrill of Brazil" and for the Rangers I used "Dating a Royal." For the actual designs I used whatever I had on hand. This was one of my all time favorite manicures and I didn't want to take it off but eventually I had to.

Sports manicures anyone?

Until next time,
Happy painting!
