#WNAC2015 - April / Pastel: Chevron Floral Nails

Monday, April 27, 2015
Hi everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend.  I'm catching up on my last two #WNAC2015 posts for April, so you'll see two today, and they're both floral related!

For the Chevron prompt, I found this amazing pattern on Pinterest which combined chevron and florals, so I couldn't resist creating it on my nails.

I started with two coats of Essie Tuck It In My Tux, which is a really pretty off-white jelly, then while the base was drying I cut out some chevrons using a few pieces of green painters tape and a pair of pinking shears.  I placed the tape a third of the way down my nail, then once I painted over the tape with black polish, I separated some dried flowers from Born Pretty Store and added the petals to the tips of my nails.

I must say, I really enjoyed creating these, and wearing them!  They were so simple & fun, and I can't believe I had never tried the dried flowers before.  I finished the design with a bit of holo glitter (Ciate Confetti) on the accent nail, which looked amazing over Tuck It In My Tux.

I hope you all enjoyed this design; I'd love to know what you think in the comments below!

#WNAC2015 - April / Pastel: Ikat Nails feat. the Lacc Beauty Spring / Summer 2015 Collection

Sunday, April 12, 2015
Hi everyone!

We finally have some lovely Spring weather here in Canada, so I couldn't be more excited to use the new Spring / Summer 2015 Collection from Lacc (La Couleur Couture) for my latest #WNAC2015 post.

The prompt for this week was Ikat.  I haven't created any ikat nails for a while now, so I was pretty excited, and I wanted to design something unique but still have the ikat feel to it.

#WNAC2015 - January, February, & March Roundup!

Thursday, April 02, 2015
Hi everyone!

This will be quite a lengthy post today, so I’ll try to save you from reading a lot and just overload you with lots of pretty nail art photos, since my blog is definitely lacking lately!

I’ve decided to just combine the past three months of our Weekly Nail Art Challenge (#WNAC2015) into this one post because I have the separate posts saved in my drafts, but now that they’ve past I figured I might as well just do a mega post.  Starting this Friday, I will be doing separate posts, though (finally, right?!).  There are also a few tutorials for the designs, so make sure you check them out if you’re interested. 

You can view our April challenge schedule (which starts tomorrow) at the bottom of the post if you’d like to join too! :)

Monday, March 30, 2015
Hi everyone!

Today I have the final installment of the Glam Polish Over the Rainbow Flakies Collection to share with you.  If you missed the first two parts, you can check them out here & here.

Like the first two parts, these five gorgeous shades are packed with gorgeous rainbow flakies and glass flecks.  Photos don’t even compare to what they look like in person, trust me.
