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!

Zoya Amal - a gorgeous matte-velvet classic red with red flakies. I received this as a gift and was trying to do a mani with it that would showcase its beauty. I couldn't quite perfect what I was aiming for but will keep working on it. In the meantime, this'll do. Amal applied beautifully - this was an easy 2 coats. 😍
 
OPI My Vampire is Buff, on the other hand, presented some challenges. Streaky and a little goopy (may be time to say adieu to the bottle), it took 3 careful coats - 4 on the left pinky - to get this warm-ish vanilla cream color to cooperate. I had a hard time drawing the lines with it so I ended up using OPI Alpine Snow instead.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Oh, I really love this! You must have a steady hand! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@PrettyPaint and a lot of time. 😂 Some of these took forever. Lol. Thank you!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I love this red idea @itsfi.  So cool! You are very precise. I can’t imagine! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Sunnysmom! If I can do it, anybody can. Having time and patience help a lot. 😆

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Holy perfect mani!!! You did such an awesome job. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Awww, thank you @ather! 🤗 It was a nice way to spend a free weekend! 💅🏼 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Very cute.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@tjffc, thank you! 😊 The design was simple enough that I couldn’t get too distracted or impatient. 😆 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

That turned out great, @itsfi!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, thank you. I need to remind myself to allot more time when I’m doing my nails. And to have more patience. 😆 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Amal is gorgeous!! And I love the stripes...so simple, but what a bold contrast ❣️ I had thought about doing stripes on my current mani, actually, but horizontal never even crossed my mind...it would have been one or two vertical stripes. Will have to file that away for future inspo!

 

Now that you mention it, I don't have any sort of cream shade, I don't think. I have white, of course, and a super pale grey, maybe a super pale pink, but no cream. Might be a new rabbithole, sigh 🤭

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, I love Amal! 💖 Thank you, thank you! The Zoya matte-velvets are definitely more my speed when it comes to matte polishes; it never looked too flat on its own. Interestingly, it's easier for me to do horizontal lines free-hand, well, at least on my left hand; it took a while longer and several attempts before I was okay with how it turned out. 

 

Definitely give cream shades a try. There's a lot of variety out there, with all sorts of undertones. I think I may have at one point left the bottle open on this one because it was thicker than I remember it ever being. 🤔

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Ahhhh, I meant to ask if you had tried thinner in that one? Should help tremendously if it's too thick!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown, good idea. 😀 I will give that a try. I don’t remember this color being that thick; it anything it ran on the thin side. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Tonal french tips offer subtle detailing to a bold color 💖 

 

Ulta Eye Popping Poppy is a creamy vibrant pink with just the barest hint of coral. It's nothing close to what I wanted when I ordered it...the description is "red-orange", but it's a lovely color nonetheless. This one is part of their permanent collection, and I found it a bit easier to work with than the LE ones I used a few manis back; it didn't get streaky or gloopy, and it was nearly a one coater, with a second coat just to touch up a few bare spots.

 

OPI Strawberry Waves Forever is a bold pink shimmer. Three coats for this one; it wasn't fussy about coverage, not streaky or anything like that, just a touch sheer after two.
