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

@keana1, I generally like the look I can create with the makeup wedges, but the sponge applicator gives me better control and creates less of a mess around my nails so less clean up. I found some sponges at Daiso a month or so ago that look smaller than the makeup wedges I was using and I'm interested to see how these "cosmetic puffs" as they are named will work out for ombre nails. Maybe I'll do an ombre with all three applicators to see side by side how they compare. Stay tuned ... 

 

Oh my goodness, my longest nail broke this morning! Le sigh. It was a fairly clean break and I have the slightest bit of a nail edge left. Like you, I ended up cutting / filing down the others, so no they're all the same length. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Wow! Ok so first your nails have gotten so long! All the extra care seems to be working! I’m so impressed!!!! 

CG roses among thorns is such a pretty vibrant pink!! Perfect for pink on a Wednesday!!! 

LBD Aires is so pretty alone and with the nail art! I really love the ombré effect you created! So pretty! 😍 And the nails with just Aires looks so good! Your nails are at the perfect length!!! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thank you @ather! That's very encouraging to hear. What you don't see is my thumb nail - it's a little wonky at the moment - 3/4 of the free edge is at a good length, the other 1/4 is growing at the snailiest of snail's paces. 😅 I may just try filing it and saying that I intended it to be a crooked oval shape. Hahahaha! 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi  Hmmmm I wonder why the 1/4 is growing so slow??? I’m sure it will catch up! My nails seem to be growing fast but they seem to break just as fast! I’ve been wearing Nail envy to help with strengthening!! It’s boring to not have colour on my nails. 💅 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@ather, I know, right?! I can't figure it out, but I'm using it as the curve / slant for a round shape nail on my next mani. And my longest fingernail broke this morning, while I was heading out the door. 😕 I took a pic so I could see how long my nail had grown. Bright side, it'll grow back. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I love the CG, @itsfi ! 💞  I think LBD Aries is gorgeous...I might be prejudiced since I have (and worn) that color. 😁  I agree that a sponge/makeup wedge may work better for the gradient.  You'll have a bigger surface and be able to load up (and dab off) the excess polishes.

 

If you have the Maniology Pardon My French plate, you can try using the large rectangle:  stripe all your colors, scrape over a few times to mix, and pick up with your stamper.

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Titian06, thank you. China Glaze Roses Are Thorns is a fun and fabulously vibrant shade; I’ve gotten asked about it by random strangers in store.

 

I started doing ombré nails a couple of years ago and I am sure it was beginner’s luck. Top coat is one of the keys for me. I used makeup wedges and latex polish on the skin around my nail bed until early last year I think it was and then went with these makeup sponge sticks worked better for me. I’ll go back and try the wedges again with some adjustments.

 

Thanks so much for the tip on stamping; I’ve made a note but I’m not ready quite yet to try ombré with a stamp. I’ll give stamping in general another try at some point before the year is over. 🤞🏼I did more of it in the earliest days of the pandemic; it’s on my list of things to re-try. That is a lengthier list than I expected. 😂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi that China Glaze pink is gorgeous!  That's definitely a perfect Summer pink 🙂

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

It’s definitely a summer shade @CookieGirl1! 😊 Perfect for days like this when the sun has decided to hide. 🌥️ Not unusual for the city but hopefully the sun will come out later this afternoon. It made me think of you when I was applying it. It’s a CookieGirl1 neon in my mind!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi fun color

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@CorgiMommy, thank you. All these different pink shades are fun colors. 💅

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I’ve never seen an orange nail polish that’s unique like this one before @Cissy63 ( it’s like a mix of orange and coral ) lovely nails 🧡

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@Cissy63  This shade is so pretty! Do you find the polish lasts a lot longer than other brands? 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Those nails look amazing @Cissy63 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Ooouh, what a great orange shade @Cissy63! 🧡 I love the name for this one - it is so on point for this hue. 🥕 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Love this Mani! Such a beautiful color. @Cissy63  ❤️
