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

I don’t usually wear nail polish because I can’t do Wadu with it but still buy them as my daughter loves to wear them on days when she doesn’t have to pray, I am lazy so I forget to wear even in those days. I was recently sent over these clean vegan polishes to try so if anyone is looking for a clean option. Though in all honesty, despite of their claim that nail polishes are wadu friendly, I am not convinced that one can perform proper wadu with these ( or any other nail polishes) on. So if you are muslin please do full research before believing a brand’s claim about wadu friendly nail polishes. 
Anyways for all those who don’t have to look for wadu friendly, these are good clean options.

I used a new brand of gel polish, kiara sky with red carpet nails base and top coats.  The shade is 90s baby and my right hand came out much better in terms of thickness and opacity.  I did them on Monday and not a flaw yet 👌🏼🤞🏻💕

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@SAlyFitz Nice sparkly shade. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@SAlyFitz 

They look great; love the sparkle!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thanks! I have got to swatch my colors and mark how many coats I like on the back so I can stop having one hand come out better than another lol

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Abstract streaks and dots are a fantastic way to try something a little different and artsy without serious skills or special tools! Just wipe as much polish off the brush as you can for the streaks, and a toothpick or bobby pin works great for the dots if you don't have a dotting tool laying around.

 

White: Ciate White Heat

While I still don't have a white I just love, I think this may have been my least ornery. Three coats for full coverage, but it wasn't terrible about it; the polish didn't thicken or start getting lumpy/stringy during application like many whites I've tried.

@RGbrown Loving the watermelon inspired artwork.  Beautiful!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@tjffc 

Thanks so much!  ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I. LOVE. THIS. @RGbrown It gives me watermelon vibes for summer and I am all in. 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@missjeanie 

Ahhhh, fantastic interpretation, and now I can't unsee it! 🍉

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

You're so creative @RGbrown! For me personally, I don't know about being able to do something as artsy as your pretty manicure here without special skills. Very pretty! 😍

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@itsfi 

Nah, this was ultra easy, just a little smearing and smudging! I had originally planned to do some sort of asymmetrical two-toned french tip, but decided at the last minute that I wasn't in the mood for structured lines. This was my super quick substitution!

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Your Plan B is beautiful @RGbrown

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

I was just talking about this with @itsfi in another thread and had a thought that maybe I should post it here for the rest of the polish fans! 🙂

 

Zoya Remove+ is far and away my favorite remover...all the power of acetone without turning my skin white from the drying effect, but it's a bit on the spendy side, and I only pick it up on sale. Sadly, Zoya's sales aren't really predictable, and who knows when another 70% will pop up; I'm starting to run low, less than half a bottle left from last year's haul, so I started poking around the 'net and found a DIY recipe that I'm liking so far!

 

10 parts acetone

1 part glycerin

1.2 parts water

 

Glycerin won't mix with acetone on its own, but this recipe uses just enough water to keep them mixed. It smells like acetone, of course, but seems to work just as well as Remove+ at removing polish without drying out my hands. If/when Zoya does another 70% sale, I'll likely stock up on Remove+ again, but this'll be a decent alternative until I can get it cheap!

No problem! I'm always happy to find a cheap hack that actually works! ❣️

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@keana1, I’m not usually into brown polishes but this one is gorgeous. 🤎 Such a rich, beautiful, lush brown! 💅🏼 

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

Thanks @itsfi ! I’m also not into brown or neutrals but this one reminds me of milk chocolate 🍫! 😜

Re: Show Me Your Nails 2.0

@keana1 

I hate that MAC discontinued their polish! I managed to grab a couple before they were gone for good, but I'd love to see them come back!
