My Nails Now

My Halloween nails were getting chippy chippy chippy! So, I took all of that off & re-did my nails. They look like this now:

The first photo shows my nails against a Power Purple Catch Me tank & Ziggy Wee September Plum Wunder unders by Lululemon. The second photo shows more clearly the two colors I used on my nails.

This time I used Sephora’s Strengthener as a base coat. The darker color on my nails is called “Just a Little Dangerous,”and the lighter color (the furthest from the nail bed) is called “I Don’t Bite.” I put ‘Just a Little Dangerous’ on my whole nail first, then put ‘I Don’t Bite’ on top and tried to eye-ball a straight line across the tops to create some sort of “french tip” like design, only using purple. As a top coat I used the same as last time, Sephora’s Mirror Shine Top Coat.

I love Sephora’s nail polishes. I had to do two coats of ‘Just a Little Dangerous’, but ‘I Don’t Bite’ went on thick enough to only require one coat.

I hope y’all get a chance to take advantage of the 3 for $10 deal on Sephora polishes. They’re worth it! What are your favorite brands of polish?

UPDATE!

I decided that red nails would go best with my Halloween costume, and even though my nail polish posts seem to be popular, I decided to update here, rather than write a new post, since the technique I used to create the look is the same. I started with my usual Bamboo Nail Strengthening Base Coat, then I used “Kept ’em Guessing for 30 years,” seen below.

I then applied “What’s Your Poison” polish I got a Sephora just to the tips. I checked, and it is unfortunately no longer available, so I have a picture for you below.

It’s a delicious sparkly red. I’m going to be sad when I run out of this one. It goes on thick and lasts a while on my nails. That’s impressive.

Then, I followed with my usual top coat, the Mirror Shine by Sephora. I would totally wear this look again.
