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!




...And don't forget to check out @Beadshopgirl's Nail Stamping Thread for stamping inspiration! ❤️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Glad I didn't cave for 20% at Cirque...I want a couple of the neons and they aren't included in their sale, but this 30% is better for the jellies I want too. Wish I could stack my WUN rewards on top too, but sadly it didn't work, so now I have to debate if want to make a $70 haul (after discount, plus shipping) or not 😱 30% will likely be the best deal for the neons, they are LE and tend to go oos before better sales come along iirc. Argh, decisions!


ETA: yep, I caved. I need to be done shopping now! 💸

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown I've had to use a lot of self-restraint to NOT buy C.R.E.A.M.  I'm going to try and live vicariously through your purchase 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


I appreciate and admire self restraint! You can do it!!!!💚

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Those are gorgeous choices @RGbrown !!! You make me want some! 😅 Looking forward to seeing the manis you create with them!

Indirect lighting indoors



Direct lighting outdoors. I also happened to catch the tail end of morning golden hour! (I’m not a morning person but I woke up early because I was cold. We’re currently in that weird transition period here where it’s too hot use a comforter/duvet but too cold for just a flat sheet.)


@jaaayp’s use of nail stickers and my kids’ love of put stickers on EVERYTHING inspired me to give something a try. The end result isn’t the greatest, maybe a bit too busy for my liking, but it was a fun experiment and my kids are loving it, so why not?


Index and pinky are Kokie - Royal Flush. It’s a dark blue to purple shift. I could have done two coats, but ended up with three. Not fussy, easy to apply, and the brush is a decent size.


Ring and thumb are Quo - Galactic. It’s a metallic, iridescent, chromey lilac. It’s definitely a three-coater and the end result was a bit sheer but not too fussy to work with. I could see the slightest bit of my smile line before I laid down some white (Pure Ice - Superstar), blue (OPI - DonUou See What I Sea), and burple (not a typo! Sinful Colours - Let’s Talk) dots. The SC does not like to be isolated as a dot under top coat and started to diffuse before the top settled. Not what I was expecting but could be a cool effect on a different manicure. I also wish I had put the bill of the dots at the base instead of the tip of the nails. Next time!


And on my thumb, I added dark blue star from my kids sticker collection and topped it off with Sally Hansen - Snowglobe. If you want to use actual stickers, I would recommend getting the base down and completely dry before applying the sticker, smoothing down as hard and flat as possible and covering with a quick dry topcoat over every part of the sticker, especially the edges. The slightest bit of solvent from a half cured manicure will eat the sticker adhesive and the sticker will start lifting. (I tried so many times to make it work…)


The middle finger is also the same Quo - Galactic but over black (Sinful Colours - Black on Black). It really changes up as a topper and becomes this interesting electric  purple that shifts from almost blue to purple to lilac to pink. I really like it and might do a full set like this someday.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Your stickers look so good with the blue, purple & blurple shades @JoSometimes! Having them on a couple of finger nails really makes them stand out and let’s the other polishes shine as well. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @itsfi! You’re totally right. Having only a finger or two let’s the others shine together. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@JoSometimes Really beautiful mani. I really like Royal Flush. There is nothing like enjoying a beautiful morning 🌄😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Mellmars1185! It’s a really fun polish. I wish the shift was a little more extreme but I still like it!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I don’t find your mani messy at all @JoSometimes ! I find it so beautiful! I love it!!! You always bring these creative designs. Gorgeous! 💙💜💙💜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @Saradestin! I find it relaxing to do manicures. I just sit and let my mind wander and create whatever I can think of.
