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! โค๏ธ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I have to really consider it @JoSometimes. It's a mental debate atm. I decided to pause it for the moment. ( I want to see in writing or something that my work is really allowing them, I'd hate to get them and have them change thier minds) 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CynthieLu I understand completely. It would suck to go through the effort only to learn itโ€™s not something theyโ€™re actually allowing. Fingers crossed they do say yes!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

This is exciting! 

Cons - Time consuming and cost 
Pros - Having your nails done in  whatever color that makes you happy 


Iโ€™ve been using gel polish - no acrylics/extensions consistently for well over ten years and for me it works .. no issues. 
I also go to a nail salon - nothing I do on my own.

Do share what you eventually go with and decide on. 


Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you for wieghing in @NWW123 it's a tough decision ๐Ÿง and I appreciate hearing everyone's insights. ๐Ÿ™

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I'm back on my "nope, no more creams, they're borrrrrr-ing" kick, so I sat down last night and pulled all my unused cream swatch sticks and made up tentative combos to get them used and out of the freaking way so I can buy more sparkles ๐Ÿคญ 


First up, some hot red/coral shades ๐Ÿ”ฅ


Essie Clam Bake (pinky and thumb): super bright orangey red jelly/crelly. Easy to work with, not streaky or fussy in any way. If you like sheer, you'd be happy at one coat, but I used three for more opacity. 


Zoya Rocha (ring): lighter than Clam Bake with a touch more orange and white for a bright coral color, cream formula, super duper easy two coater.


Essie Electric Geometric (middle): about as bright as Clam Bake, but with a touch more pink than orange. Cream formula, easy two coater.


Revlon Ultra HD Hot Stuff (index): based on the Amazon pic, I thought this was going to be a deeper hot orange color, but it's drastically different in person, definitely a bright coral. Lovely shade even if it's not what I thought it was, and a super easy two coater cream. 


All are topped with Smith & Cult Glass Souls, a simple topper with various sizes of silver hex glitter and a perennial fave of mine โœจ

A little preview of what's to come lol. Some combos came easily, others will be a little off the wall and harder to love, and all are subject to change on a whim, but I'm incredibly excited to get most of these used over the next couple of months! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Wow @RGbrown ! It is outstanding! ๐Ÿ˜ Beautiful shades on your beautiful hands!!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Saradestin @ather 

Thanks so much! โค๏ธโœจ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@RGbrown  These are gorgeous! Ooo look at those combos! Canโ€™t wait to see them! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I love this little sneak peak that we get into genius mind of @RGbrown! Iโ€™m looking forward to that rainbow skittle on the third left. 

I love this red/coral combo, especially with the glittery topper. It gives Lunar New Year vibes. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! I'm looking forward to that rainbow set's a little more muted than I normally go for, but I think it'll turn out pretty decent, especially for this time of year ๐Ÿ‚

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Woah!! Look at all the maniโ€™s to come. I want a front row ticket for those shows. 

Completely lovinโ€™ the hot red / coral skittles mani @RGbrown ๐Ÿฅฐ That topper is fantastic - love how it amps up the creams. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! I've been loving this bright set ๐Ÿ˜Ž

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Oooh a sneak peak into your mani process, this is a total treat @RGbrown I see so many beautiful color combos there ๐ŸŒˆ๐Ÿ˜ It's a little swatch heaven. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


Thanks so much! Sometimes I have just as much fun playing with my swatches as I do actually painting my nails ๐Ÿคญโœจ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I don't blame you, oooh I can picture how fun and satisfying it would be ๐Ÿ˜„ @RGbrown 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

You should do some stamping or other nail art, @RGbrown .  Creams are great for that!  I love these colors!  I have Rocha; I think it was one of the first colors I bought from Zoya. ๐Ÿ˜„  Looking forward to these upcoming combos. ๐Ÿ™‚

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0


I really should pull out my stamping stuff soon! I can see silver over that burgundy/purple/pink quad near the center of my swatches and it's getting me a little excited โœจโœจ Rocha is such a fun it starts getting near dusk here, it's bright enough to give off a little glow ๐ŸŒŸ

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Inspiredfae great idea 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

All these shades are pretty but my eye is really drawn to that red @Inspiredfae. I love red polishes and that one here is a beauty! โค๏ธ
