V-Day Mani Two Days Late. Heehee!

Happy Two Days After Valentine’s Day, Chicas!

It’s been a few weeks since I’ve done my nails so I’m really glad that I got to do these! I did some for WinterJam and apparently, they looked like Dino poop. And I also deleted the pics when I thought I had more somewhere else….Which I didn’t. -__- Gar…

But anyways, I had a lull in my studies and I saw this mani from cutepolish on Youtube (here) and knew that that was the mani for this week! So cute, so easy. I bit time consuming when figuring out how I would do it, but so worth it.

Since I didn’t really have any peachy color as what she did, I painted my nails a solid gold, Pure Ice’s Jaguar, and I covered my entire nail instead of doing just the French mani style. Two coats isn’t quite enough for that color to be completely opaque, but with the spots on it, it’s totally fine. 


Once I got all the base color finished, I made the hearts on the ring and thumb nail on both hands. After that, I used Essie’s Study Case for my brown spots. I was a bit worried that it was too similar to the gold color, but when it was outlined with the black it wasn’t too bad. Then you obviously outline the spots and part of the hearts. That’s really the most time consuming part of this mani. 

A word to the wise…Don’t do the outlining when you’ve had a cup of coffee that day. Heehee! Did that once and it looked terrible…lol!

Anyways, hope you all had a great V-Day with your special someone! :D

Update on me and Pōlish Polish

Well, good morning to whoever reads this! It's been quite a while since I've posted anything. I wanna say since before last fall. Since my last post, I have started college which has been amazing!! My first semester was good and I'm in my second week of the second semester and its going great so far and I am absolutely loving the college experience. I am going full time this spring with 14 credits and with various other things I do, my plate is pretty full. I've only done one other mani aside from that one I'm showing today since I've started school. I lost alot of steam for any inspiration and motivation to do any mani's and I didn't want to force it so that I didn't dread doing then, you know?

But anyways, it's been a while and I'm getting the hang of balancing school with everything else so I may be able to post occasionally. Plus I have an iPod touch now that allows me to make posts that include pics. It's amazing how that can help. :P

So here we go!

What I did for these was quite simple. I used Sally Hansen's French Kiss as my base and I wanted to do something else to them without being extravagant. I had had some rhinestones that I'd never used and I had enough yellow ones for both hands, so that's what I did.

I love the navy blue and yellow combo. Adding some white would have been nice but I wanted to keep it really simple.

Like I said, I've never used the rhinestones and its been very interesting. They stick up off my nails and its weird when it feels like I have something stuck to the base of my nails. Different.....but good. I might try something like that again sometime. :)

Well, hope you all have a great day and weeks to come. Adios, Chickas!
