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!

Just went on vacation and used these Kiss press on nails. They actually lasted the whole trip! very hard to text and type with them. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Samtian, that's impressive that it lasted so long. It's been a while since I've tried press on nails - I have a lot of memories of them popping off at the most unfortunate of times shortly after I applied them - user error on so many fronts. lol. Great to hear these have some staying power. Hope you had a fabulous vacation!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Haha that is usually how it is for me too. Thank you I did!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Samtian 

They look fun and fabulous! Press on have really come along way these days, I love the sparkle and marble accents. Longer nails definitely take some work to get used to though! ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown I loved the marble! Yes they do lol I don't think S for small meant nail length haha. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I've had this inspiration floating around in my head for a year or more now, and finally sat down with it yesterday. Definitely one of my favorite manis ❣️

 

The red is Morgan Taylor Classic Red Lips, somewhere between a deep rose pink and a faded out red. Super easy, could have even gotten by with one coat, but I like two for a little more thickness. 

 

For the tortoiseshell, I took a yellow jelly (OPI I'm Never Amberassed) and added several drops of multiple orange and brown creams to make it more of a milky amber shade instead of the clear lemon yellow it started off as. The spots were done with thinned out black (Sinful Black on Black) and brown (Zoya Louise). 

 

Technique:

Layer of amber, then add random blobs of thinned out black with a small brush. Let dry for a bit (I did my first coat of red while waiting), then another layer of amber, followed by spots of thinned out brown. I added my little gold shards here (from Ciate Gilded Goddess), and then topped with another layer of amber. Topcoat and done!

 

You could start with a bottle of clear polish and add mustard/orange/brown to make your own amber base...I'm not sure who, if anyone, currently has one on the market. Cirque had a tortoiseshell kit a year or two ago that was my inspiration for making my own.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I love these they’re so cute and remind me of tortoise shell buttons:)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@jumproper 

Thanks so much! ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown wow that looks amazing!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Samtian 

Thanks so much! 💗

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This is so cool @RGbrown! I’ve wondered how to do something like that. Nice work and I love how you paired it with the pretty pinky-red. 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Thanks so much! I am sooooo glad I finally took the time to do this one! It's been on my wish list for a while, but I was vaguely worried I'd screw it up I guess, so I kept holding off. While I see a couple of things I could maybe improve upon a bit next time, I am thrilled with how it turned out 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Easy peasy mani for some Halloween fun!

I'm contemplating adding a glow-in-the-dark top coat later in the week - maybe just to the eyes? Hmmm.... 🤔 I tried the top coat on its own last week and I had to apply quite a few layers for it to barely show up when the lights are off. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

SO CUTE!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@jumproper, thank you so much. 😃 This was a fun manicure to do. I can see myself doing something similar again. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi So cute!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Samtian! These were fun to do, made more fun because I was able to do them in one go - that never happens!! 😊
