Gel Nails

So, one thing I taught myself how to do during my blogging break is gel nails. Not just gel polish, but actually using builder gel and nail forms to extend my own nails. I have been trying for years to grow out my natural nails... I've tried taking biotin and applied various nail strengtheners, but no matter what I tried, my nails would break before getting to the length I wanted.

I found this YouTube tutorial and got the necessary items to try it myself. Much to my surprise, I was able to do this, and it wasn't even as tough as I thought it would be! I love having longer nails and having a lot more room for nail art! I like that I do them myself, and I am in control of everything. I can take my time and really make them look the way I want them to, and I don't damage my nail underneath!

Here are some manis I have done featuring my new nails!

Cupcake Polish Yule Be Missing Me & Look Who's Stocking Now

I love painting my nails even more now and I can't wait to try so many nail art techniques! Have a great day everyone, and I'll write to you soon! :)

I have tons of pictures to share that were taken during my blogging break, and I can't wait to show you guys! I have started an instragram, so if you'd like to take a look there, click here.

I am looking forward to getting back in the blogging groove, and hope you'll still come along for the ride! If you have stuck with me all this time I'd just like to say thank you, from the bottom of my heart! Nail polish is my hobby and passion, and I truly love and enjoy sharing it. So, with that, here are some pictures of some manis I have done!

Zoya Zuza

Hi guys! Recently Zoya offered a promo to get the 'Pinterest' trio for free; just pay shipping! I didn't have any of the colors from the beach or surf collection, so I was really excited to get this trio! The one I was most excited for was 'Zuza'! 'Zuza' is a beautiful mint/aqua green packed with shimmer. It. Is. Gorgeous. I change my nail polish constantly, but I know I'm going to be leaving this color on for a while!! 

The formula on it was a tiny bit thick, and some dragging occurred on areas where polish was reapplied while still wet. I did two coats and the second coat even everything out. Here is 'Zuza'!

Love, love love!! Hope you guys have a great Monday and week!!!

China Glaze Summer Neons!

Hey Everyone! Just got these in and I couldn't wait to share with you! I haven't wanted an entire collection in forever, but I just HAD to have this one!! So I caved and bought the entire China Glaze Summer Neon Collection! I will try to do real swatches, but in the mean time, here is a cool Instagram Pic!

Holo Hump Day!!!!

Hello fellow nail polish lovers!! Today's mani is another one decided by one of the polish facebook groups I'm in! It's holo hump day (hence the title!) and basically, anything holo goes! For this look I used three polishes from the China Glaze Kaleidoscope collection. I started with 'Octa Gone Wild', then 'Kaleidoscope Him Out', and finished with 'How About a Tumble'. I just free handed stripes... it kind of reminds me of cotton candy - - well, HOLO cotton candy!!!

*Also, please ignore the cut on my pointer!! I cut myself chopping an onion!*

Hope you all have a great Wednesday!!!
