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

Getting in this post before the fireworks show officially starts.🎆
Fourth of July 2022Fourth of July 2022
 
 
SEPHORA COLLECTION Color Hit Mini Nail Polish L41 Cherry Popsicle (thumb), a red creme in a teeny tiny bottle. If someone said this isn't a terribly unique shade or that it's like every red cream polish, I wouldn't necessarily disagree. At the same time, like every red creme polish in my collection, this one, to me, is different. It just is. lol. The formula is on the thinner side; this is 3 coats.
 
NCLA United States of Glitter (index and pinky fingers) applied over a clear base coat. The polish itself is a clear base with red, blue and silver hexagonal glitters scattered throughout. Best to dab on these glitters. Also best to use a thin top coat well after the clear base to this polish has dried; otherwise, some of the glitters will pull towards the fingernail tip and can get a smidge gummy.
 
OPI Super Trop-i-cali-fiji-istis (middle finger) is certainly not a name that rolls easily off the tongue, but the blue creme shade is simple and beautiful. Very easy to work with; here, we have just one coat.
 
NCLA Ask the Magic 8 Ball (ring finger) is my new favorite white creme polish. Super easy to apply, minimal-to-no-streakiness that I find common in most white cream polishes. I was impressed that this was one coat. A second one would have been ideal, but I was in a hurry and just hoped that the top coat with smooth over one very small spot, and it did!

@itsfi  Perfect 4th of July nails! I love them!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather, thank you! I think this may be the first year I did my nails for the holiday. Took the long weekend off and made it about sleep, BBQ, masks, and mani’s. 😂 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Wow that sounds like the best long weekend ever!!! Hopefully you had time to see your family too!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather, it was a really nice weekend. Some family and friends were out of town on vacation but I did grab breakfast with my dad on the Fourth. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  that’s the best! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Love it all, especially the glitter!  ❤️🤍💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

The glitter is the best @RGbrown! 😁

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Great mani, @itsfi ! ❤🤍💙  

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06, thank you! 😃 The NCLA polishes were part of a sub box that I’ve long since canceled, but this was the first time I used both. Sorta makes me wonder what else has gone unused. 🤨 Ack!! 😱 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi pretty mani 💙🤍💗

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Skunk12puzzola, thank you. 🙂 It’s nice to work through my polishes. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

What a joyful little tribute, @itsfi! The blue and red shades have just the right amount of intensity to them, and the glitter is fireworks worthy 🇺🇸

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@eshoe, thank you. 🙂 The red and blue worked out well. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I love it so much @itsfi ! So cute! It looks so festive! It is like you have all the party confetti on your nails! 😍😍😍😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Saradestin! 🤗 You’re always so kind. I need to remember I have this glitter polish. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

For the 4th of July I wanted to do something fun, so I added some tiny Swarovski crystals that I had for years (for another purpose) and played a little (not too much fun because I have no tiny brushes so it was quite a nightmare 😅) But I think it came out so cool! It is so sad that, for some reason, the camera doesn’t capture the incredible sparkle from the crystals but I can’t stop looking at my hands. 😍 

I used as red Morgan Taylor in Good Gossip on thumbnail, index and pinkie, (it is packed with tiny glitter and it has a satin to soft matte finish so I added LynB gloss top coat to intensify the sparkle), Orly White Tips all over my ring finger (because I don’t have any other white) topped with LynB B-Flat top coat (matte) and Zoya Pixie Dust in Chyna for the red stripes, and lastly, the blue is Essie in Front Page Worthy, with the Swarovski crystals on top.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestinso creative and the red and white waves are just beautiful 💫

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you so much @eshoe! The effort paid off! 😁

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin  Coming back to post the comment I wanted to add when I first saw your mani on my phone (I don't like posting from my phone): you did a great job with your PixieDust stripes! I know firsthand what it's like trying to paint lines with that sandy texture, especially using Zoya's brush—which isn't bad by any means, just requires a bit more effort than using a fine tipped paint (or nail art) brush. Well done! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you so much @WinglessOne ! It was a challenge and I knew even before starting! I was so impressed at how beautifully yours came out that I needed to try! 😁
