Rainbow Striped Skittle Nails

Hello everyoneeeeeee.
So remember last time when I said I didn't really like the rest of my mani except my pinky? well. yup. I decided to redo all my other nails and keep my pinky! Hahaha and here's what they look like. If you guys would like to check out my instagram, its @steamiexo.


I'm loving this a lot more than the last mani! Think I should've used a more pastel orange though, but this'll do! Someone told me this reminded them of Easter nails haha, unintentional :D

Here are the polishes I used, the bow is from Born Pretty Store, I have a coupon for 10% off on the sidebar!

Trust Fund Beauty: I'm Kind of a Big Deal
Sephora Collection: Random nameless one?
Sinful Colors: Unicorn
LVX: Mynt
Formula X: Infatuated.

Okay, one last look at these :3

Thank you guys so much for reading, and let me know what you guys think! Until next time!

Simple Barbie Pink Art

Hi everyone!
Today I have a pretty simple striped and dotticure to show you all, I'm not too pleased by the final result, but I really do enjoy this barbie pink and the bow design on my pinky haha.

First, I used 2 coats of Trust Fund Beauty I'm Kind of a Big Deal, a medium pink. Creamy, smooth, no problems with application.


Then I added some stripes and dots, and a design from a bundle monster stamping plate. Like I said, I really love my pink design, but not very satisfied with the rest of my hand :'D. It's okay haha, still wanted to share with you guys.



That's the finished look! I might try to redo this mani because I'm not very pleased, but I'll update you guys on that! Hope you enjoyed and talk to you guys next time!

Wet Raindrop Mani on China Glaze Duochromes

Hello lovelies! So I've been seeing this raindrop effect thing around a lot lately, and I really wanted to try it! I don't really have any multichromes, so I'm using two China Glaze duochromes for this! Didn't turn out as impressive as I'd hoped, but I'm definitely going to try these with a black base some time~


So first, I applied two coats of China Glaze Unpredictable on my index and pinkie finger. It's a beautiful green with a blue duochrome. I used China Glaze Rare & Radiant, an old gold/green duochrome for my middle and ring finger. These are pretty thin, and I think I could've benefited from 3 coats. Shown below is two.




Beautiful shift on these, right?!? This somehow reminds me of dinosaurs and lizards hahaha. But anyway, I then went on to add a matte topcoat. I used Essie Matte About You.


Diggin the matte finish!!
Spectacular. Now for the last part, I just dropped on a few blobs of glossy top coat on each nail, and here's how it turned out!


The change in finish is very pretty, but not that noticeable unless you look up close. But nonetheless, I really enjoyed creating this, and it will definitely be something I want to try in the future as well!

What do you guys think about this "wet" look? Thank you for reading!
