Winter Hues Chevron

Blues and grays are great for the winter.  And who doesn't love a simple chevron design?  I have combined some this season's hottest shades in this simple nail art design.  

The gorgeous periwinkle blue is Revlon Brilliant Strength Intrigue.  The silver is Sally Hansen Color Foil Sterling Silver.  Last but not least, the gray is Zoya Kelly, a deep, rich gray that I love for this season.

I painted my nails with Intrigue and used a striping brush for the rest.  I decided to invert the design on my accent nail to switch it up a bit.  Not so great at painting straight lines?  Grab some striping tape to help you achieve clean lines. 

Hope you all enjoy the latest designs from my sister and I!

Valentine's Day Mani Mania

Happy Valentine's Day!!! 

This Valentine's Day I was inspired to create more than one look. I chose pinks as my primary colors because I despise red nail polish. I know, I know, don't hate me! If I had time I think I would have done another one. I just can't get enough of all the hearts and LOVE!!

This mani is so girly and fun! My new favorite purchase is this bright pink from Color Club, Wicker Park.  I'll definitely be wearing this a lot this Spring/Summer!

I free handed the heart using negative space. This is a technique I'll never get tired of. For the other nail I used striping tape and a dotting tool to create the heart. This spectacular silver holo is Digital Nails Supernova. WOW!

So stinkin' cute! 

The second mani I created is a little different and much easier to execute.  Some glitter bombs and stamps are all you need. 

The magenta polish is Polish Me Silly Aloha Baby!. This is has a fantastic formula and is gorgeous. I stamped using Color Club Wicker Park. 

Now for the glitter bombs! The all pink pinky is LAV Lacquer Pink Matter.  This has only two coats for opacity.  The heart glitter bomb is Picture Polish Frosting by Cosmetic Cupcake. This is the only polish I have that has hearts it in so I knew I had to use it! So fun!!

What could be easier than stamping? It's not always perfect and does take some practice, but they are always fun and unique!

I hope you all have a special Valentine's Day filled with polish and chocolate!

Born Pretty Review Part 2: Stamping Galore

**All products were provided  for an honest review**

For part 2 of our review for Born Pretty Store, I have some new products to show you. I you haven't used BPS yet, then you must. They have amazing products you can't find, great prices AND FREE Worldwide shipping!!

I've only used nail foils once before. I'm not a huge fan of them because I don't think they last. However, they are super easy to apply and can be a great way to accent your nails.

The foils I used are Nail Foils in style A13. I didn't use a base color, but I wish I did.  You can see a lot of bald spots and that's never good.  These pictures were taken of my second try at this set of foils. I know there a rules when using and applying foils. I thought I followed them, but they didn't seem to hold.  The surface was tacky and I was able to pick them right off. Who doesn't love a good polish picking session?

I think something might be off with my foil glue. The foils themselves were great. 

Onto my favorite part! STAMPING! I have two different plates to review.

The first is called Radiating Pattern BP11. This plate is seriously cool.  These are designs I would never be able to do on my own.

Base color is Color Club Jackie O stamped with black.

While my stamping didn't come out great, I still LOVE this mani and this plate. I used a marshmallowy stamper which warped the design way too much. Next time I'll use a more firm stamper.

The second plate I used has a vintage theme, BPL007.  The thing I love about this plate is that there are 25 IMAGES!!

The base of this mani is my favorite mint, Zoya Neely stamped with SinfulShine Steel Reserve. I am a huge peacock feather fan, so I knew I had to give this image a shot.  I love this color combination too!

This is another image from the same plate.  This kind of image was harder for me to apply because of the straight lines.  I usually try to stick with images that don't have to be lined up perfectly. Case in point, this image. I need lots more practice!! I used a new Indigo Bananas polish as the base, Immortal Game (these pics do not do it justice), stamped with Sephora by OPI Social Climber (my favorite silver stamping polish!).

Overall, I was very pleased with all of my selections. I am very rarely disappointed with the products I receive from Born Pretty Store.
