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

@RGbrown, now I'm thinking about Mac & Cheese too. 😂 The polish is a pretty yellow / yellow-orange color.

 

I saw the thumbnail with the wrinkling / bubbling up and thought "what kind of nail art has RGBrown been experimenting with?" That's interesting about the possible reaction of glitter / sparkly polish and the Zoya Gelie Cure. That aside, the Gelie Cure sounds like something I need to look into.  

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

GelieCure has been really nice as a base layer on my weaker nails...it does a decent job of building a little thickness while remaining flexible, and is easy to remove when it gets too worn. I can usually get 2-3 polish changes out of it before having to redo it. But this whole glitter-might-ruin-it thing is starting to get to me...for a while, I just avoided all glitters on those two nails, but I got annoyed with having to coordinate a cream with every mani. 

 

Meanwhile, for my current mani, I've got the blue and green on those two nails (aka glitter bombs), and neither one wrinkled. Which kinda just serves to make the problem more frustrating, as it's truly a case of "I'll never know if I don't try it". 

 

I am debating moving up to builder gel at some point. On top of the GelieCure annoyance, I've got three nails currently held together with teabag patches, and I think builder gel might do a better job at holding them together (and maybe keeping them stronger to stop some of these breaks in the first place...most of them started as tiny hairline fractures about halfway down the bed that oh so gradually get bigger as they grow out). But I'm also worried about a more difficult removal with that, so I'm sitting on it for now. Perhaps soon though...

@brandiwaschau 

I wish I could handle nails that long; yours are stunning! 💕

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

you could do it! thank you 😃😃

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@brandiwaschau 

I've got scars on my chin and one eyelid from stabbing myself with nails around my current length. I'd be downright dangerous to myself and others if I had mine that long 🤭

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@brandiwaschau  Very pretty!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

thank you 🥰

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@AznAngelLiz I love that!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@AznAngelLiz  I love the bright pink!!!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@AznAngelLiz 

Hot pink is always an excellent choice for summer, and I love the accent! 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Even with the fun topper, yesterday's mani felt too dark for what I wanted, so I went brighter 💖

 

Atomic Polish The Ashen Sun

Ahhhhh, what a gorgeous shade! It shifts from hot pink to orange, and I can even catch a bit of gold with just the right lighting and angle. Lotsa pics of this one coming up 😍

Picking up just the hot pink was surprisingly tough, as the orange in this one is strong

 

Watermark_1623523440356.png

This is pretty close to what I see most of the time, a combo of the pink and orange that makes the glowiest coral shade around

Love that hot hot orange with a touch of gold 🧡

 

 

But wait! That's not all! 😅

I decided to play with tonal shades again, and did some subtle stamping in red on top ❣️

Stamping done with Ciate Sn@tch

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, I’m going gaga over this stunner! ♥️ With that gorgeous shift, it is summertime perfection! 😍 

 

I’m both amused and baffled that you can’t write out the entire name of the Ciate polish without triggering the bad word warning. I didn’t realize sn*tch was a potty mouth word until this thread. 😲🤔😆 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

This one definitely makes my list of all time faves 💖

 

It cracks me up every time I try to use the word sn@tch; while it's a bit crude as a slang term, I didn't think it was anywhere near common enough to make a no-no list, especially nowadays. Seems like it was somewhat more common when I was much younger...or else I'm just not hip to today's slang anymore 😅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  And I didn’t think they could get any better!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather 

I normally hate covering up special shades like this with stamping, but I think keeping it subtle added another layer of interest for me, without taking away from the glow of the base color. I can't stop looking at them 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  I am in love with this. Lovely stamping. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@PrettyPaint 

Thanks so much! 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

OPI Good Girls Gone Plaid

I think this was billed as "deep amethyst" or something like that, but it's an almost-black...I'm having a hard time telling it's purple even in direct light, and I feel it pulls more purple in my pics than it does IRL, at least to my eye. Brightened it up with LA Colors Fancy Pants, a super fun topper with glitters in various shapes and colors
