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

Yes @RGbrown , so far the sales are moderate. I am looking for sales that I cannot resist. Maybe for July 4th ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin 

I am terrified of July! Night Owl should be having 20% and I plan to go ham, plus I think there's normally a good sale for G&G (25 or 30% iirc), What's Up will have their semi annual sale, and mainstream fall collections should start coming out around mid month, so I'll be looking to pick up whatever China Glaze and Morgan Taylor polishes catch my eye (if any...fall isn't normally my fave collection, so I'm kinda hopeful I won't want any lol). Not to mention whatever bevy of sales other brands and retailers throw out for us ๐Ÿ˜ฑ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Oooh, good to know about Night Owl in July @RGbrown. ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I've been out of town for work and am slowly catching up. The idea for these Memorial Day nails came from some nail wraps I saw online. The wraps included stars on over the blue polish and all the polishes had shimmer to them, unlike my polishes. I also couldn't paint on stars (something to work on) so I just went with a blue polish on my ring index finger nail. All 2 coats except for the white polish.

๐Ÿ’…Red - Sephora Collection It Girl, a red creme

๐Ÿ’…White - Nails Inc. Free Time is Me Time, a white creme - this one was fussy, 3 thin coats to cover streaks 

๐Ÿ’… Blue - Nails Inc. Need Some Vitamin Sea, the blue creme polish from the Nails Inc. Mykonos Set

๐Ÿ’…Silver - Dare to Wear Stellar Stars - chromatic silver with holo shimmer and glitters

 

Will cross-post to the Monthly Mani Challenge thread @JoSometimes later tonight; need to finish preparing dinner.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  This is a perfect mani for Memorial Day weekend! It also would work well for Independence day too. That blue is the perfect blue! I love it! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This is so GORGEOUS @itsfi!! Now I want to do a Memorial mani as well!!! I LOVE it! โค๏ธ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Awww, thanks so much @Saradestin! You're too kind!! You absolutely should do a Memorial Day mani! I would looove to see it. ๐Ÿ’—

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi omgggg how cute! I love out opaque and vivid these colors are!!! ๐Ÿ˜ โค๏ธ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @jaaayp! I was suprised by how well these polishes, the red and blue, really, turned out. Nails Inc. polishes have been hit or miss for me, and more the latter - formula too thin, streaky or fussy, but the blue polish offered opacity with one coat and then two coats brought out the rich pigmentation in the color! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi I'm glad it worked out you wanted it to! I hate it when you have to layer after layer and it just looks bulky and chubz!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

The colours are very patriotic @itsfi! Your flowers are super cute. I hope you have a great long weekend!

 

And too bad about the nails inc white. I have a topper from them thatโ€™s also a pain to use. I have one of their base coats, which I like. And the brushes they use are nice for my fingers. I can almost do one swipe for my pinky. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @JoSometimes! I have some work to do, but will spend some time just relaxing as well. 

 

Oh my goodness, the Nails Inc toppers are such a pain to work with! Which is too bad because they have some cute toppers. Grrr! ๐Ÿ˜ฃ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This is awesome, @itsfi. I love your patriotic mani and it's so bright ๐Ÿ˜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @CynthieLu! The shades ended up being very pigmented and vibrant; yaaay! I needed to do something with my nails after not having anything on them for a couple of weeks! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Ahhhhhh squee, this is an adorably patriotic set! โค๏ธ๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! I donโ€™t always do a theme for Memorial Day but I was sans polish for a couple of weeks ๐Ÿ˜ฑ and was ready to try something. The lines I need to work on and thatโ€™ll give me an option to look to when Iโ€™m trying to figure out what nail art design to try. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Super cute (and festive!) mani, @itsfi.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, thank you. Itโ€™ll make for good convo with some of the kiddoes at a weekend BBQ. Fingers crossed, I keep the white polish as neat as possible until then - Iโ€™m less careful with my hands than I thought. ๐Ÿ˜† 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Such a special many. I like your colour choices and designs. Such a well thoight out mani! ๐Ÿ’™๐Ÿคโค๏ธ๐Ÿฉถ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Mellmars1185! Every so often, I try my hand at using nail wraps. It doesnโ€™t always turn out neatly ๐Ÿ˜‚ so Iโ€™ve taken to using the designs on mail wraps as inspiration for nail art and adding my own tweaks and touches here and there, depending mostly on my skill set. ๐Ÿ’…๐Ÿผ 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This is a beautiful mani, @itsfi ! ๐Ÿฅฐ  The red and blue are gorgeous and the white is so crisp.  The flowers and dots are too cute.  Still patriotic without the stars.  The silver is a great accent yet doesn't take away from the focal point. โค๐Ÿค๐Ÿ’™
