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


Thanks! It's messy but fun! 💖

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown Woooow! I had no idea this existed! That looks like so much fun. I love DIY things! And I could totally use it to teach my girls colour theory. (I’m already justifying a purchase like this even though I have no need for it…😅)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Ahhhhhh, justify away! It's a ton of fun, and I'm sure your girls would have a blast!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown What a great idea! You have createe sme beautiful shades! New hobby?!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! I don't want a new money sink errrr, I mean hobby, but maybe so 😬😂 Playing has been weirdly stressful, but also quite fun!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

OMGosh, @RGbrown !  This looks like so much fun! 😍  I love the colors third from the left and third from the right.  Maybe if I make a dent in my "still to be worn" polishes, I might give something like this a try. 😄

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! I'm kinda mad at myself over the reddish one, I put some blue reflective glitter in it for some reason (whyyyyy?) and it just looks weird IRL. I wasn't following a recipe for that one, just trying to wing it, and proved to myself that that's a bad idea for me lol 🤭 That third from the left is divine though, I'm ordering more of that pigment so I can play with it more, and one or two similar ones with slightly different shifts. A ton of the polishes I'm lusting after lately use pigments like this, so that one might actually save me from at least a couple of bottles in the future!


I've about decided I'll never make a dent in my untrieds, so apparently I just need to go ahead and pile on scads of homemade ones too lol. After three more today, I'm up to 11 now, and still have more supplies on hand (and I'm trying to whittle down my DRK cart, but I've about hit my limit on stuff I'm willing to toss out of it). Ahhhhhh! 


If you decide to browse, DRKnails dot com will be open til the 10th (they're open for a few days once a month), and they've got a few premade kits! You'll need bottles as well, and extra mixing cups and funnels are handy as well.

My Fourth of July Nails 

Fourth of July Nails.jpg


Saw a fireworks mani in an article on Pinterest and I thought I'd give it a try. My nails are on the shorter side again (they got pretty banged up with all the prep work for home improvements) so I only attempted fireworks on one side of my accent nail. 🎆


Red - SEPHORA COLLECTION Color Hit Mini Nail Polish L43 It Girl, a classic red creme, 2 coats

White - Essie Lace to the Altar, sheer ivory with an iridescent pearly finish, 3 coats

Blue - Essie Front Page Worthy, a shimmery cobalt blue, 2 coats

Silver - DND Fairy Wings 464, a clear base with tons of silvery glitter


Base coat - NAILS INC. NAILKALE - Superfood Base Coat Base Coat 

Top Coat - Glisten & Glow

Hope everyone had a great Fourth (and a happy belated Canada Day to our northerly neighbors!)

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Super-cute, @itsfi 🙂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CookieGirl1, thank you. 🙂 It was fun. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi Beautiful festive mani 🎆! Your accent nail is really cool! I really like Nail kale. I ran out and it keeps going in and out of stock.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Mellmars1185, thank you! That's impressive that you've worked through a bottle of the Nails Inc base coat. 👍 Is it your go to / favorite base coat?

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi When I initially discovered it I thought it was the best. I liked the consistency, the brush and how it looks once applied. Since I finished the bottle, I tried a few. I also like the Essie Here to Stay base coat.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Ahhhh squee, I love your firework accent! I saw a couple of similarish designs before I did my set and meant to incorporate it into my mani, but totally forgot by the time I sat down to do it, oops 😬 Your rendition is fantastic! 🎇

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @RGbrown! There are so many great ideas for and inspiration for nail art out there. I find it all too easy to fall down that rabbit hole and then before I know it, I have to get working on the mani and have to pick something to work on. I need to start a list of nail art ideas so I can keep track of them - on the one hand, I'm all on board with another list (yaaay lists!! 😁) On the other hand, I'm thinking, "great, another list that will just get longer and longer and longer..." 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi You accent mail is amazing! I would have never thought to do fireworks like that!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@JoSometimes, thank you! I found a lot of creative ways to do fireworks when I searched online. I might try a couple at another time. I also feel like I have a stamping plate with fireworks that I'd like to give a go. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

The accent nail lines are perfect - working my way up to being able to do such delicate designs myself : )

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @CattyT3! It's fun to try out different designs and nail art techniques. Some seem to come more easily to me than others, and it even depends on the hand - like with this one, using my dominant hand to draw the strokes turned out better than when I tried the same thing on my dominant hand. 🤣 You've posted some fabulous mani's and it'll be great to see what look you do next. 💅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I hope you had a fabulous 4th of July @itsfi 😄❤️🤍💙

Your mani is so pretty,  the lines for your firework are so neat and well done. 

Beautiful work on your nails. 👏😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @CynthieLu! The 4th was low key, quiet & fabulous! 👍🏼 This accent nail turned out pretty well; now as for the other hand .. 😬 it’s funny how nail art turns out so much better when I don’t overthink it. My other hand went through multiple attempts and they all ended up looking like a muddied graph for a presentation and not at all like a firework. 🤪
