Nail File Friday’s: Pink Glitter Outlined Nail Tutorial

The outlined nails is the trend, it’s also very different – pretty different! I used here a pretty pink with shimmer polish, but you can do this look with whichever color you enjoy. The look is fun, the negative space where you can see the natural nail is also nice and it’s thinking outside the box to your everyday looking polished nails!

Nail File Friday’s: Easy + Simple Light Pink With Glitter Detail

So, after all the dark and neon colors I’ve been trying out over on my YouTube, this week I wanted to share with you something neutral and pretty but still toned down. I went with this neutral, and very beautiful light pink/nude tone nail polish by Essie – Go Go Geisha. It’s that perfect neutral shade that you can wear to work, a wedding, school, etc. when you want a color that isn’t loud.

Of course though, I still wanted to ‘dress it up’ a bit, and decided on this tiny detail of colored glitter on the ring finger – love the final look!

This is a very easy negative space french manicure in lime green. This is such a fun color and I’m especially loving the name – Mojito Madness. If you’re low on time, a negative space nail tutorial is the thing to do.

If you can’t freehand a french manicure, no worries, use scotch tape as a guide to help you get a straight line. Also, use as little polish at a time, using too much will cause too many mistakes. Enjoy!

Nail File Friday’s: Korean Inspired Nail Art

This week I was inspired by the South Korean nail art. It is so easy, they’re all about leaving the nails looking minimalistic which includes the ever so easy, negative space. I always enjoy looking at different trends, especially in the world of nail art. So, today with my great-grandparents in mind I went back to replicate this very fun Korean trend. Enjoy!

Nail File Friday’s: Red + Gold Nails

This week I wanted to make something extremely simple – yes that’s possible! You know when you want to do something, but feel so busy, too tired and out of energy. But, know that certain things just should be done. Doing my nails this week resulted in just that. As someone that lives with chronic pain, things can easily slip by, so it’s essential that I try to motivate myself in finding ways to get things done for myself as easily and efficient as possible. Because as they say, it’s the small things.

The red nail polish in this look is so vibrant and the gold makes it look so fancy! It can even be recreated for a holiday party, work gathering, festivity or celebration.

Nail Polish Used: I used the color ‘Really Red’ but this is the next best thing Essie Russian Roulette (bright red) and Good As Gold (gold)

Nail Tools Used: Nail Brush + Dotter  for cleaning the sides of the nails and dotter for making dots on all nails.


Step One:  1 Coat of ‘Seche’ Base Coat

Step Two:   2 Coats of the red nail polish (three strokes per coat on each nail)

…. Allow the nail polish to completely dry before doing any nail art ….

Step Three:   Using a piece of aluminum foil, place a bit of the ‘Good As God’ Nail Polish on it, dip the dotting tool and create a few dots just on the side of the nail – wipe the dotter clean by dipping it in acetone after each use, going in a zig zag like pattern, continue to create the dots

…. Allow the dots to completely dry before applying the top coat ….

Step Four:  1 Coat of ‘Out The Door’ Top Coat

This is optional ….

‘Cuccio’ Cuticle Oil – Milk & Honey  – it helps keep your cuticles moisturized, cuticle oil will avoid your cuticles from drying, this can happen from the use of nail acetone.
