Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Due to some technical glitches with the original Show Me Your Nails Thread, I am starting a new thread with @vegchililover78's blessing (She says "hello," by the way!).

 

Please share your nail looks, nail art and manicures!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I wasn't intentionally going for Valentine's Day nails, I just wanted something bright and fun, but these kinda skew that way 💕

 

Hot pink: Julep Ari, a crelly that was a dream to apply, even though I wish it were slightly less sheer. Never streaky, three coats.

 

Light pink: Julep Dylan, a full coverage cream that was mostly easy. I had to finagle the second coat a bit to make sure I had even coverage, but it wasn't terribly fussy. 

 

I can only handle so much bubblegum, so I added Kiko Smart Fast Dry 95 (grey). This seemed like a crelly on the first coat, but went solid with two, and wasn't fussy to work with at all.

 

The swirly nails include Baroness X Fluid Art in Nacre, a white/pink pearlescent shimmer that's supposed to break the polish down into "cells", giving a dotted effect. I've played with it a few times, and never seem to get much of the cell effect, but it still adds a nice shimmer to the swirly mix.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Love your color combos here @RGbrown. The grey and red polishes add a nice balance to that bold (and pretty) pink. 💅🏼 That swirl is really nice; I’ve had a few Baroness polishes in and out of my cart for a while.

Thanks so much! The fluid art has been fun to play with, even if I don't get quite the results I thought I would 😋

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Ooofta!  I love the marbled pink!

Black Dahlia Lucky Bags!

I got a medium one 4 or 5 years ago and was very pleased! I believe I wound up with 14 polishes (mix of large and small bottles), a base coat, a top coat, and a cuticle oil. I don't remember the exact value now, but I seem to recall it being around $110-120.

 

The formula is nice. It seems to thicken a bit more quickly than some of my others, but thinner takes care of it easily. I've got zero complaints about the brand overall!

 

The really nice thing with BDL is that you can give them notes at checkout and they will customize your bag to what you want (or don't want)!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, I keep going back and forth on this mystery bag offer. I really like that they will consider any notes you leave. ♥️ Will I or won’t I? Hmmm.... 🤨🤔

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

While hunting my old Zoya mystery box pic, I came across my BDL Lucky Bag pic. It hasn't been quite as long as I thought; I got mine in 2018. My notes basically boiled down to "no creams, no nudes, just sparkly bright colors" and they came through admirably. There was only one that I wasn't 100% thrilled with (a very brown leaning brick red matte), but overall it was a phenomenal intro to the brand (and I think it was also my first indie purchase).

Late posts. My nails for the last couple of weeks.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Ooh I love that red look!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Samtian! 😃 I might try to do it again. Maybe draw / paint on some of the nail art and see if I like that better. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

I love both of these!

OPI makes some fantastic reds; I keep eyeing this one, saying I don't need it, but it'll probably wind up coming home with me at some point anyways 😂 Love that aqua too! 💚💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! 🤗 I technically didn’t *need* OPI We the Female; at the time  that family of shades made up most of my collection (not that they don’t still, but it looks a little more balanced nowadays - hahaha!). One of the area beauty stores was bought out and it had a ridiculously amazing sale on its polishes! I only caught the tail end of the sale but was able to snag the OPI for something like $3.50. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Need, schmeed. At $3.50, I would have snagged it (along with everything else they had) too! 🤣

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Haha @RGbrown. it was slim pickins by the time I got there. 😔 I was able to pick up a Deborah Lippmann set of polishes, and an Essie base coat. 😍 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  I love the mono chrome ones! So fun. I think you did an awesome job on your new year’s nails! They look perfect 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Awww!! 🥰 Thank you for always being so encouraging and kind @ather! 🤗 That Jior Couture polish turned out better than I hoped; it applied very easily and smoothly too! 😍
