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'm interested to know if anyone has tried this brand as well @RGbrown @CookieGirl1. I could be persuaded to pick up a few polishes, and smoothies 😉 for that matter. The smoothies would be for research, of course. 😅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi @RGbrown I haven't tried the brand either but I like the idea of trying the smoothies "for science" 😁.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This mani was inspired by a beautiful daisy matte blue nail design by IG: @osa.nails. I prefer glossy nails over matte so I exercised some creative license and went for shine. My nails were just a teensy bit longer than they are normally so I took it as opportunity for a rounder shape to my nails. 💅

4.9.2023 Gucci Lucy Baby Blue.jpg

2 coats of the aptly named Gucci Lucy Baby Blue. Such a pretty blue! 💙 I was a little surprised that the first coat went on a smidge streaky, on all nails. A second coat was enough to give this opaque finish, but this is the first Gucci polish that didn't give me a thinly opaque finish with one coat. It was consistent though, in that every nail, even the pinky, had at least one bald spot requiring a second layer. Not a dealbreaker, just unexpected given my experience with Gucci polishs.  

 

The flowers on the accent nails were done with a dotting tool and nail art brush, along with Sephora Collection L198 Yellow Car, a bright yellow that I actually mixed with a bit of the white polish to tone it down a little, and You’re My Sol Mate, a bright white creme polish, from the Nails Inc. Mykonos Set

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

These are way too cute @itsfi ! I may need to copy some day 💙💙💙💙

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Saradestin. Definitely give it a try. It’s got a fun spring vibe - doesn’t hurt with the sun being out either! ☀️ 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Cuteness!!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Samtian! With the sun out, I was all for a cute, cheery mani. 😃 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

These are flipping cute! @itsfi 

The blue is a beautiful colour. If it gave you a bit of trouble, you can not tell at all. The final result is soo pretty 🩵

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Aww, thank you @CynthieLu. I still have some learning to do to master fuller looking flower petals, but I am happy with how this mani turned out. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I L-U-V your mani, @itsfi , and your daisies are the best! 💙🌷💙  Your nail shape looks wonderful.  Too bad the blue polish was a little finicky, but what do you want?  Perfection? 😄  This was my avatar(?) For the longest time.  Enjoy a bouquet of daisies for your great mani!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

What a beautiful bunch of daisies @Titian06! Thank you! They bring a big smile to my face. 😊 Cool choice for an avatar too. Your current one is super cute! Good choices all around. 👍🏼 

 

lol! The baby blue polish is such a beauty. 💙 I apply two coats out of habit so I can definitely live with the streaks with the first coat. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

ooh so cute and fun for spring @itsfi !

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I want spring to stick around @Kim888, so if the weather's not fully on board, I'll make spring happen with my mani. 😆

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Aaaahhhh, this is fabulous all around 😍 That bright blue is the perfectly backdrop for the sweetest little daisies ever! 🌼🌼🌼

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! My flower petals don't have the fullness or flourish that I see on the beautiful manicures on IG but I'm just happy that they are looking a little more like petals than before. 😄 I found a couple of YT videos that showed a couple of techniques to achieve a fuller look so I may give those a try ... at some point.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

That's so cute and springy, @itsfi!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, thank you. I'm ready for spring. We've seen some rain still but the sun comes out more these days to make it seem more like spring - I'm willing it to stay that way through my mani. 😃

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  That is such a bummer the Gucci Daisy blue was not as good as the other ones you have. I wonder if it’s because it’s more of a pastel if that’s why it gave you a bit more trouble. I have a few pastels that are a bit more troublesome! Super smart idea to tone down the yellow. I think this is so perfect! I love this daisy look! Daisys are one of my favourite flowers. The other is bird of paradise but that flower might be harder to make into a mani! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @ather! Ahhh, I think you're onto something with this being a pastel shade. It's one of the 3 newer colors to the line - no streaky issues with the fuchsia one; I'll have to see what the beige-y shade is like but I somewhat expect some sheerness on the initial layer from those types of shades. Will keep you posted.

 

Daisies are such joyful flowers. 😊 Love seeing clusters of them in a garden or a bouquet. Oooh, the bird of paradise is so captivating! I can just imagine the mess I'd make if I tried to do a bird of paradise design on my nails 😂; it's probably a design that would be better if my nails were longer. That said, I think the orange and blue shades would make a gorgeous pairing for a mani. Oh!! #inspired

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  I agree. Might be hard to pull off. But I bet an abstract birds of paradise might be pretty. I wonder if I have the right colours here. Maybe I need to try it out! I bet you would do a beautiful job if you tried! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

You should definitely try it @ather. Do you have chrome powders for those colors? I can imagine it being stunning with a chrome finish. 😍

 

I found a YT video with a bird of paradise design; they make it look so easy. Will have to check my stash this or next weekend and see if it’s something I can put together.
